Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha from the whole lot of us in Sitiawan…

…or something.

It was Eid and it was Sitiawan’s turn this year.

The trip to Sitiawan was not stressful for traffic was more than manageable. After nearly three years, I am still getting used to raya traffic being bad in the opposite direction.

Irfan and I performed solat Aidiladha at the temporary masjid in town as a new one was under construction at the site of the old.

Before long it was time to head home.

A sad footnote:The day we before we travelled to Sitiawan I had heard that an old family friend – my parents’ good friend and my former classmates’ dad – had been hospitalised. We visited him the next day and were met by his entire family, people I have known since I could remember and rarely meet these days. Sadly the next day – the day beforEid, he passed away.
