After a month long of fasting, Hari Raya Aidilfitri is here. The yearly visit to our relatives’ house and endless eating has commenced. Isn’t it interesting how we eat lontong and rendang at everyone’s house but our ultimate all-time favorite lontong and rendang is still our mom’s.
After a month long of fasting, finally, it is time to feast! A usual household will serve a variety of dishes, kuih-muih and not forgetting soft drinks. The host has tirelessly cooked the dishes from the previous night and although it is not inappropriate, it is impolite to decline their offer. Be ready to be stuffed with all the Hari Raya goodies on this festive month.
Visit at midnight
Visiting multiple houses in a day can be very time consuming and draining. You want to cover as many houses as possible in the limited off-days that you have. However, we need to understand that some people need to rest to head out again in the early morning the next day. Visiting a house past 11 pm is common especially amongst Singaporean Muslim families but it should be discouraged. Drop a call to the host if they are willing to take in guests at odd hours before coming to the doorstep unexpectedly.
Dress like a curtain sale exhibition
Color coding for baju kurung for an entire family was in 2 years ago. Everyone was obsessed with having a uniform color Hari Raya attire donned by every member of the family. However, spotting a family dressed in the SAME color code can be easily mistaken for a curtain sale exhibition. You do not want to be confused as such. Our suggestion is to play around with the color schemes but stick to the same color family. It adds variety and cheerfulness to the whole merry atmosphere.
