Selamat Hari Raya

Wishing all my muslim friends a happy new year. Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.. Today October 1st, 2008 is the 1st day of Hari Raya

Prime Ministar in his Hari Raya speech: Aidilfitri is a month to forgive and strengthen ties, as such Malaysian should foster and strengthen national unity.

Malaysians should continue to uphold the true Malaysian spirit of mutual respect, and we should continue the efforts to maintain a harmonious, progressive and peaceful society.

After one month of Ramadhan, many muslims from other states  have returned to their hometowns to celebrate this festive season, but there are quite a number to start their Hari Raya celebration here to avoid balik kampung rush and jam.

To my friends Azhar Mahfof and Kamal, the two photographers who just got married last year which I attended their weddings have a different thought. Kamal wants to stay here with his wife to celebrate his 1st Hari Raya in Klang whereas Azhar mahfof wants balik kampung, to go back with his wife Yulia and their one month old son to celebrate with his parents in Johor.

Selamat Hari Raya and greeting to all.
