DEEPAVALI CELEBRATION - Day 1 !!!!

     This year, all the hindus celebrated Deepavali on 17th October, and I was one of them, hehehe...btw, next year deepavali is on 5th November, I check from wikipedia already...if you want to know the purpose of this celebration, check la wikipedia....


     This year preparation was kinda last minute because 1 week before deepavali I had final exam...mcm biasa, house cleaning is one of the things which won't miss in preparation list before any festive celebration...My jobs were more on house cleaning since I'm not good in cooking...all the cooking part my mum yang handle..hehehe..every year, I celebrate deepavali at Jasin, my hometown..




     On Deepavali's eve, my family and i would gather at my grandparents' house, praying and had dinner there...usually the relatives in melaka only could gather that night, the others from other states would came on the next day. On that night, my cousin sisters, all are younger than me, were so rajin doing kolam in front of my granparents' house...







Nice or not? so next time if you like to have a kolam in front of your house, just contact me, I will ask my beloved cousin sisters to make for u..of course, not FOC, hehehe...


     On 17th October 2009, i woke up at 6 a.m....have to...even my younger sis, hareennie yg takde keje nak buat pun bangun pukul 7.30 am...this year, we had our breakfast at home, it's considered unusual..before this, we always had breakfast at grandparents' house..in the morning, we were too busy preparing food, ok, not we, but my mum,because we invited our friends came over to have lunch..eventhough my mum is kadazan, but she can cook idli,rendang ayam,ayam masak merah,mutton curry and dalcha..this is what we call..semangat 1 Malaysia!

In evening, some of my cousins came to my house...their house near to my house, just walking distance...after about half an hour, they went back because all of us have to prepare for BBQ session at 7 pm, at my grandparents' house..Yay!!! all my uncles, aunties, cousins, all 4 generations in Kalimuthoo's family termasuk cicit2 gathered that night..it has been a long time we never gather like this...the last time we had bbq was 10 years ago...


We were told 7 pm, but my family reached 8.30 pm...mcm VIP pula...saw a lot of people were sitting and eating..some tgh bakar2 ayam..not chicken only, ada sausage, sotong, udang...



please control your saliva ya...daripada meleleh...


Inilah antara muka2 yang rajin...
