eid 2010 in hiroshima.

Syawal is over. But celebrating it away from home makes all the difference - the food, the people, the place. It's an annual event for us so even though Syawal is over, we still put on our nicest baju kurung, baju Melayu, sampin and shawls to celebrate it!

Or in my case, my 'nicest' jeans and kebaya. Hehe. I bought some baju kurungs for raya but they're still in my bag, and we finished cooking at 4.30 am LAST NIGHT CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?? PFFT.

Who would've thought making roti jala can take so much time. I don't! *pulling hair*

So this morning I woke up and got dressed with half-opened eyes, totally ignoring the fact that all of the girls are wearing baju kurung except for me. Kebaya is forgivable right?

But last night was fun, we had Basha and Nazu helping us girls (and also keeping us entertained..hehe) make roti jala. I just finished my presentation that evening so by 9 pm my bed was already calling me..

Woah my mum would be so proud if she saw this HAHA.

Had the Eid celebration at the uni, at one of our usual party-places. The food was great! Thanks to the third-years for organizing everything, I feel so old already..sigh. If this was 2 years ago, I would be the one rushing around making sure everything is ready, arranging the food on the table, rushing people into the hall, etc..but now all I do at events like this is EAT. Haha. To the juniors, don't worry, your time will come.

At events like this, there are always 5 phases for us :
  • Phase 1 - Organizing food, seats, people in the hall.
  • Phase 2 - Make the president start the event if it hasn't started yet.
  • Phase 3 - After the president's longg speech, EAT! Have to go queue first cause the guys would always, ALWAYS take the first big chickens. Pfft.
  • Phase 4 - Dessert. 3 bowls each.
  • Phase 5 - PHOTO SESSION. Usually this would annoy the hell out of the guys, cause we always make them take photos for us HAHA. Girls lah whattodo..
This time, it really feels different because this would be our last Eid celebration with the Malaysians in Hiroshima. Can't believe it's been 4 years already.

Had so much fun with the girls!! Sighh I'll be missing them :(
4 months till leaving Hiroshima, and I'm already feeling blue.
