Eid 2018 Part I: 10 Hours on the Road and a Feature on Tatler Malaysia


Dear readers,

Firstly, I would like to wish all of you a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri Maaf Zahir & Batin. How was your Raya this year? I hope it was as good for you as it was for me.

As usual (and I say 'usual' because this is the FIFTH TIME we've done this), the Husband and I spent the Eve of Eid at Uncle & Ende Cho's place. The theme for the night was green and as per usual, we had the annual photo session on the grand staircase and one of the photos from the night was featured on Tatler Malaysia!

Borrowed Evran for this shot because he's so adorable!

Since we practice taking turns for Eid celebration, this is the Husband's year. However, this was our first time spending the night before Eid at our own place and the experience of being the woman of the house is such a new one for me! I had the air conditioners fixed, every spot cleaned up and every outfit ready...sampai demam la time Raya! Hehe.

We were a bit late in getting to my in-laws place at Kg. Datuk Keramat (which really is just 5 minutes from our place) and had breakfast (read: brunch) before we had our photoshoot.

The Husband and I headed straight to Johor Bahru and was stuck in traffic through 3 states before we arrived at my grandmother's place after 6 hours on the road. And while we were there, we found out my brother, SIL and Faisal Ibrahim missed the last flight to Johor Bahru because their flight from Terengganu to KLIA was delayed. A very pregnant Ira and my brother were so heartbroken and exhausted from running to the gate which closed only a few minutes before while a very energetic Faisal (who didn't know what was going on) happily waved at the departing plane, "Bye bye airplane!"

And that was the unfortunate end of our first day of Eid 2018. Stay tuned to find out what happened next!
