Going home or balik kampong is such a huge phenomenon here.
The younger generations in Malaysia like to venture into the town from their kampong to seek for opportunities. Eventually they settle down and get married..
Whenever there is any festival like Hari Raya, Chinese New Year or Deepavali, these people go back home or balik kampong to celebrate with their elderly parents and families. They go back by air, car, bus or by train.
There will also be extra cars parked along the narrow lane outside the rows of kampong houses.
Because, there are so many festive seasons in Malaysia, Malaysian take the opportunity to go back for a holiday. Balik Kampong is something much look forward to……As long as driving carefully and they are able to reach home safely, then everything is OK.
I wish all my Muslim friends Selamat Hari Raya.
