I look forward not only to Chinese New Year and Christmas every year, but also to Hari Raya because of the long holiday that we get to enjoy. Just love the festive and holiday atmosphere in the air everywhere. It is also during these occasions that I get to take a long rest and break in my online store and catch up on my sleep!
This Hari Raya holiday, we are heading back to Ipoh to celebrate my dad’s birthday. We will be starting our journey tomorrow morning and I am hoping that the traffic will not be a bumper to bumper crawl on the highway, else we will have to make a U-turn and head back into the quiet city. I can’t wait to be back in Ipoh to spend a few days with my parents. As much as I miss my parents, the girls miss their goong goong and granny very much too. And not to mention the good ol’ Ipoh food, air and water. Yes, even the air smells fresher too in Ipoh with lush greenery and limestone hills surrounding this idyllic city that churns out pretty girls. Datuk Michelle Yeoh and your truly are born and bred in Ipoh, ahem! Gosh, my tummy is rumbling away thinking of all the Ipoh food stalls that we will be charging at soon!! I’ll bet I’ll regain the 1kg that I’ve lost recently in just a few days with all the binging that’s underway. But who cares. Eat first exercise later and I’m certain I’ll lose it again once school reopens in 8 days. I’ve already listed out some places that the girls have never been to in Ipoh, to bring them to visit this holiday. Hopefully we can tick off the places in my To Do and To Eat List In Ipoh.
Here’s wishing all my Muslim readers and friends Selamat Hari Raya and to everyone – enjoy your holidays and drive really safely if you are traveling on the road.
