The Most Memorable Eid in 4 Years
Is it too late to talk about my last Eid Mubarak in the States? Hope it's not..
This year's celebration was clearly my best Eid in these 4 years..Bukan pasal baju raya la..i had less new Raya outfits compared to last year. But then this year's Eid fell on weekend...(yeah..cheers!!). Maksodnye? I don't have to celebrate my first day of Eid in the lab, having a pipet in one hand and a stock solution in the other hand.
Most of the seniors went to Washington D.C. on the first day, leaving a few people in State College (mostly because they had at least 3 exams coming up the next week, including me). Even though I was late for the Eid prayer, I still made it to the HUB lawn and joined the other Muslims..
We had a simple open house in College Park from noon to around 4 p.m. Guess where's my next stop then?BINGO..It's time for the 'celebration' in the library. Haha. I don't usually study in the library. But then I have to finish my Chinese assignment and sadly enough, my laptop cannot type chinese characters anymore after my bro reformatted it last summer..
For the first time, we made homemade nasi impit (me, Zawa and Nisa - 3 of the 6 seniors left..ehehe). One of my Chinese classmates, Dan, came over around 4 p.m. to the open house and luckily we still had some food left. Though I regretted that we didn't have time visit the other houses (Basyira, Kak Ifa and Kak Lia), it's still a memorable Eid celebration.
Next entry-gonna talk about my first Eid celebration in D.C. and reunion with Mak and Ju On.
