Selamat Hari Raya Aidil-fitri

After a month long of observing the daily fast, abstaining from basic needs and urges during Ramadhan, the Muslims started their exodus back to their respective hometowns to celebrate the first day of Syawal yesterday. It is a joyous occasion for Muslims, as it signifies a personal triumph, a victory of self-restraint and abstinence, symbolising purification and renewal.

The non-Muslims, on the other hand will enjoy a long weekend and many joined in the exodus to visit family and friends or taking a well-deserving break.

To all the Muslim world over, A HAPPY "SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDIL-FITRI!"

I had no idea this weekend was a holiday. Have a good one!

I didn't realize that there was a holiday this weekend. I hope you had a great one!

Thanks everyone! It's been a great weekend. Unfortunately I had to miss a trekking trip earlier today. Aching knees due to yesterday's run.
