I certainly am donning lots of hats atthe moment and of course, a whole new chapter of what Carpe Diem should be done :)
My first challenge for Syawal was to be on the console station for Radio Melayu Perth. My DJ colleagues went back to Malaysia & SIngapore for raya and i am the one which was given the responsibility to run the special 90 minutes programme. Managed to breeze through it with Izhar and Syafiq who did their best to make sure everything went on perfectly! Ustaz Mat Jais Kamus was our guest for the night and i certainly learnt something new.. in celebrating Eid..
"Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum" and that is sunnah :)
We did made visits to Haji Shamsudin, another figure and also to Mak Limah's place; the gold mine resource for information. One thing i gathered from the visits today,the spirit of Syawal is certainly very lively amongst the Malays here- especially seeing the 2nd and 3rd generation making their effort with their family members to do their rounds; introducing their young to the elders on Syawal. It certainly brought a lot of memories to me on the Raya celebrations when I was younger. The fun of Raya was relived!
