First Time Celebrating Eid with Parents & Grandparents Since the Pandemic


Before the pandemic, the Husband and I thought maybe Eid is the perfect time for a holiday especially since we did that in 2019 (Read: Raya Sydney: A Short Honeymoon (4 Days 3 Nights at RM3,000)). Then, we wouldn't have to worry about scheduling our Eid plans. Ahhh, those were the days.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic hit, we had gone 2 years without spending Eid with my family and I felt really sad about it. I was really looking forward to this year's Eid as we transition into the endemic phase. However, 2022 was legendary as Eid came like a surprise. Not that I was super surprised or anything. 

Long story short, I was in my grandparents place during the announcement that Eid is tomorrow instead of the following day without my Eid outfit! Face palm please! But the truth is, the car couldn't fit my things as we were transporting my brother's family's things. Lo and behold, we had to head back to KL which was an hour or so away. Dah balik rumah, tidur la situ kan? Penat kot.

The next morning, after getting ready and rested, I said to the Husband, we need to go ASAP because my family does Eid celebration like a competition against time. We made it just in time for photo sessions and makan time.
