Salam, hi afeesh,

here are some of my aidilfitri pics. in somewhat chronological order, from ramadan08 period to preparations for aidilfitri08, thru the festive season day2. i never quite like to pay visits [whether it's for hari raya or not], unless it's to people whom i'm very close to. i only visited 3 houses on the first day [my mommy's elder sista's, my bro's and my sista's places]. I stayed home otherwise. I did not join my family members to the other visitings.

I'm not anti-social, i just don't see the logic or sound reasons of visiting people whom i hardly keep in touch with, whether or not we have blood relation. I perceive that it becomes very sluggish to adopt many of the practices of most of the malays.

As I am manouvering into a holistic lifestyle, I am making personal efforts to put priority on Aidiladha instead. To me, the malays are experts in blowing things way out of proportion. They'd go visitings till after midnight. They'd even visit cousin's in-law's bro's and sisters, or long distance auntie's adopted daughter's house and so on and so forth, etc... that's juz an example. Too frivolous that all seem totally unnecessary for me. I view the habit as being sloppy.

Sweetie, you don't hafta agree with me. Juz respect my views, that's all I'd ask for. Let me be with my thoughts and ideas. I do not wish to join the rat race.

Last but not least, no one knows about this page except for you. you may however share it with whoever tho it shall only be for you, from me.
