Deepavali 2005

I'm still in holiday mood..

This year's Deepavali was more of a family affair..didn't held any open house as the previous here..but the spirit and the joy of Deepavali was there..

Me on Deepavali Day..

On the Deepavali eve, we had prayers for our ancestors..went to the graveyard and held a prayer there as well..then, back home, we had our bath and another prayers for the souls..

The Deepavali day itself was another family gathering...we went to temples and then back home, we had another prayers. then, after having a was angpow time..where the unmarried people receive gifts and money from married couple.. :) well, i'm still single, i'm still in 'recieving mode'..i got myself a pair of cute Australian Silky Terries as this year's most valuable Deepavali gifts..

Then, we had fun taking family pictures (which i haven't develop yet :( )..visiting other relatives' open houses..and so on..

Today is Hari Raya Aidilfitri (or internationally known as Eid)..So, taking this opportunity to wish my Muslim friends, Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri..Maaf Zahir & Batin..
