Of Family ties & Hari Raya Aidil Adha
Today is Aidil Adha. All my kids are back home.
The house tends to get all messy and cluttered with things, and is much more noisier when they're all back home. But, as ever, I really look forward to them being back, nevertheless.
This morning my two brothers came over with their families for Eid al Adha. It got noisier, and merrier. Then the Mem Besar's brother and sister also came. More laughter - and the occasional cries of the baby.
We are blessed for our family.
You might have best friends, bosom buddies and office mates. But nothing beats the warm feeling of love and closeness with our family.
Whatever friends you might keep, and no matter how close you are to them, still, family ties are paramount.
This is not to take anything away from friendship, of course.
But that is another discourse for another day.
For today, enjoy some raya day pics, including flowers from our garden.
Selamat Hari Raya.
