Eid is what Eid is
As Eid starts getting closer to Christmas, it's difficult to justify going to Malaysia for both holidays. Naturally, there are more public holidays during Christmas than Eid hence it'll be awhile until I get to celebrate Eid in Malaysia.
That said, I think I made the best out of Eid as I could. I had invited friends over for an 'open house' on Sunday which I prepped for well ahead. I spent the whole weekend earlier making tofu bergedil and frying things that required frying such as tofu. Throughout the week coming to Eid, I was prepping every afternoon and by the time it was Sunday, all I had to do was make lodeh.
Pushing through was the best thing I did because I really enjoyed having my friends over. We ate, watched videos of when we were kids, played pictionary, charades, spyfall and ate some more. After everyone left, it went back to just me and Yen in the living room... talking about life.
Monday came and I was in London for a site visit which then lead to lunch with Munirah. It made me extremely thankful that there's someone who's from home that I can now text and ajak lepak.
