Things i did for Raya

I had a great raya.honest to god, this year's raya was sooo best.
Got to spend time with my suami and his family for 5 full days, n then hubby stayed with me from last monday till yesterday..

Day before raya:
Boy came over the night before and spent the night.we woke up early and went back to boy's house in melaka..Got there at about noon..did nothing much as MIL had already done all the cleaning..she was mostly busy preparing the stuff to cook rendang for raya the next day..In the evening i got a call from mom, she was sobbing and muttering: "first time petang raya ni,anak perempuan mama takde"..that did it..i immediately cried..Sedih nya..but i didnt want boy to know i was sad.i want him to be happy..n i know it means a lot that i was celebrating raya at his house..
That night, MIL and i went to pick up ketupat and other hari raya goodies as boy as always has things to do that doesnt involves me. :(
When we got home, boy's nephews came over for takbir...and i think we got to bed at about 1am.

Hari raya:

I woke up at about 8am..showered and got dressed.waited for everyone to come back from sembahyang raya, and went to visit boy's arwah father's rained that morning..we had to bring umbrealla's to the pusara.When we got back to boy's house, we waited for boy's eldest sister and her whole family to start the salam bermaafan..
Since boy is the youngest and his eldest sister is older than my mom, i automatically have lots of nieces and nephews..some are them are 40 me and boy sat down and all the anak sedara came to salam us.
After that we ate ketupat, rendang and all the usual hari raya food.
At about 12pm, me and boy left melaka to go visit my grandparents in tampin..i didnt get to meet my family at my kampung as they just left for the hotel to change and all.After having lunch with my grandparents, mom called and said to get ready to head to segamat to my mom's brothers house-pak kob.they too were heading to segamat,and so we drove and got to segamat at about 5pm..There was when i got to see my parents and my brother.My aunts,uncles and relatives arrived shortly after we got there.
Me and boy stayed there till about 7pm, and then we went back to melaka.

2nd day of raya:
Managed to go visiting .4 houses all together.we finished the 2nd day of raya with boy's niece's birthday celebration at his sister's place.

3rd day of raya:
My parents and brother came to boy's house from tampin to beraya..Boy cooked mee hailam..rajin my suami.besides that, stayed in the whole day.

4th day of raya:
Balik subang!

Boy stayed with me in subang until yesterday.heaven nya..managed to hold a small open house for close friends of ours,and my brothers.
I'm surprised that boy wasnt complaining with all the open houses and raya visiting, as he loves to stay in..I guess he wants me to be extra happy this raya..hopefully it'll be the same for next year's raya.

Oh we managed to get earrings for me, as i wanted to use my duit mas kahwin for jewellery.we've been looking for my earrings since before raya..but before this banyak yg i tak berkenan..yelah,with rm300 mana nak dapat if u want rose gold earrings with SMALL diamonds .last2 we got the earrings i've been wanting before we got married that has all the criteria except the 300 price tag..dulu boy nak beli kan, but i didnt let him..that time belum kawin, byk lagi benda lain nak pakai duit last sunday, we thought of trying our luck to see whether the shop still has it..dah mmg my was still there. boy just had to add on to my duit mas kawin to get those earrings.
Very happy that i've used my duit hantaran for something that i've been wanting even before we got married.

What should i ask for from my husband for my birthday..
Tak dapat apa apa pon takpe! kesian dia..
