Sinar Lebaran di Perkampungan

4 October 2009

Rushed back from the Children's Day Block Party at Kg Chai Chee Garden Hill RC in time for Eunos CC YEC's Sinar Lebaran di Perkampungan, an event in celebration of Hari Raya.

Faiq lent me his brother's Baju Kurung. The last time I donned on a traditional costume was the Indian costume during Racial Harmony day in Secondary school. All fellow YEC members wore the Malay traditional clothing.

Abdillah chaired the organising committee for the event and delivered his maiden speech.

The Guest-of-Honour is Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed, Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and MP for Alunied GRC. He is also the Adviser to Eunos CC YEC.

Participants were treated to great Malay food (with barbequed-on-demand SATAYS!) as well as cultural performances and singing. Prizes were given to the best dressed male and female participants.

There is much to learn about Malay traditions and customs and I learnt a lot this year.
