This year Raya celebration will still be fun even without new baju kurung. Baju kurung is a traditional outfit that we put on during house visiting. It comes in all different pattern and colours. This year, the whole family decided not to buy a new set of clothing. Finally they agree to my idea of not buying. To me, I have alot of raya clothing from the past year and it still looks damn brand new. For a fact that I only put them on once a year. So why bother buying a new piece of baju kurung when all the baju kurung from the past year is still brand new. I really don't see a point in wasting money on that.
Raya is so overrated by people nowadays. They start to compare their outfit, their household stuff, their car, their stuff and so much more. We are becoming such a showoff community. It beats all the purpose of fasting. But I bet not many people understand the meaning of fasting. All they know is that, fasting is the requirement of Islam. Well, there is more to fasting than just a requirement. And I am thankful that Allah sent me the really meaning of Ramadhan.
We are down to 5 more days before Ramadhan...and the stress begin yesterday. Me and mum bought things at Ikea and today, we are heading down to Giant and Ikea (again)
