Hari Raya Aidilfitri is the most celebrated fiesta in the Muslim Community from the whole wide world to mark a person’s success on self-resistance and discipline during the holy month, Ramadhan. In Malaysia, Hari Raya is celebrated nationwide starting from “Malam Raya” where we started to fire up “Pelita” around the house and kids will be playing with ‘Bunga Api’ or firecracker. This year, Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrated on 5th June 2019.
In Metro Parking, Aidilfitri potluck will be held annually. We celebrated this day by having a potluck brought by each department. There are traditional dishes such as ketupat, rendang and nasi impit to modern desserts like brownies and cakes.
It is compulsory for everyone to wear a traditional Baju Kurung for woman and Baju Melayu for man during the event. In conjunction with it, we also had a birthday celebration for employees whom their birthdays are from April to June. We bought cakes and each of them was going home with a present from the company.
We had fun on this Raya Celebration and this is an important event that will keep our relationship stronger and also straighten our bonding together. It was also a pleasure to see everyone is enjoying the celebration and smiled ear to ear.
