Exit Ramadhan, Enter Syawal 1427

26 October 2006 15:57

It's the 2nd day of Syawal today. Alhamdulillah, praise be to God, I have reasons to be in a celebratory mood. Reason #1: I managed to complete another Ramadhan whilst fending off my own personal demons, especially when it comes to driving on the roads of Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya when it was close to iftar. Reason #2: I survived the annual Malaysian Balik Kampung Road Massacre and made it safely to and fro the family's hometown of Johor Bahru, although my driving legs are a bit traumatized from the massive traffic jam stretching from Pedas/Linggi all the way past the Seremban/Port Dickson exit on the North/South Highway that took 2 hours of our lives that we will never get back. Reason #3: Unlike past years, my tummy remains intact from making any funny bowel movements from the shock of getting food during daytime for two days already. Can't say the same about my family members. Which explains why we were all an agitated bunch of people when we were stuck in that traffic jam.

On that note, I'd like to thank all those who sent those Raya greeting SMSes, cards, e-cards, etc. To those 7-8 million of you who participated in the The 2006 Eid Greeting Card Initiative, thank you for providing me joy in sending those cards out. Selamat Hari Raya. Maaf zahir dan batin.
