the last Eid as bachelorette

Believe it or not, despite anticipating the end of Ramadan and becoming increasingly excited about Eid, 1st day of Syawal can sometimes be my least favourite day.

hmm..It used to be

here's why:
  • First, pre-Eid cooking and spring cleaning the house is bad enough
  • Second, waking up early in the morning is totally, totally not my forte
  • Third, when there's this icy cold shower offer attached to the deal (because none of my grandparents have water heater installed at their homes) it is doubly annoying
  • Fourth, having to wrestle myself into the 'telekung' (the white prayer dress thing) for Eid prayer at the mosque while being half-asleep is also none too enjoyable an experience
  • Fifth, I dread the 'meet and greet' sessions with uncles and aunties and extended relatives which involves re-heating the 'rendang', re-filling cookie jars and re-making teapots of coffee and tea over and over again..and not to mention~ the endless washing up part in the kitchen that follows
  • Sixth, the whole task of Eidis, yeah those little green packet-of-money thing..I was never too bothered about them anyway, be it me the one who's receiving or giving

and there are more, a whole lot more (some of which are too personal and shall remain unrevealed) but I think you get the idea as to why Eid to me is more like a battle I unwillingly HAD to throw myself into now, don't you?

But anyway, as much as I have taken a dislike to Eid, I still hope that I will somehow or rather grow out of it..It is easy to admit that I am less of a domestic goddess and perfect hostess that anyone would think I might be..

but a girl has got to do what a girls' got to do, right?

It's probably about time that I learn to be an adult and act like one because after all, the next Ramadhan and Eid would be the first of many for me, as a married woman, as a wife. I believe, some firsts would last an entire lifetime, while others would take away what I've had and grown accustomed to for the past twenty six years of my life..

which on a similar note, I noticed that Fariz has been hinting me the whole time as it seems, that Eid at his side, won't be as peaceful as I wish it would will be a lot busier and noisier

and just how adventurous will that be?

then again there goes, the idea of getting married just became a tad more scarier..It's not going to be easy to mix well together for a lifetime, will it?
Marriage is the union of two people who come from different upbringing and background – possibly two people with different personalities and attitudes – who have different takes on life..

that aside, here let me continue to bore you with some snippets of my first day of Eid..but don't be surprised by how I look..I simply cannot resist smiling for the camera..dressing up and taking photos are what Eid is all about to me :)
