Glasgow, 10th June 2017 | 15th Ramadhan 1438H – While most football fans were watching the match between Scotland and England, Malaysian Muslims community here organized an iftar program with the spirit of togetherness. The spirit was high ahead of Eid holiday in two weeks time despite the dwindling numbers of Malaysian living here in Glasgow.
It is estimated that no less than 10k Malaysians will be celebrating this year’s Hari Raya Aidilfitri in the foreign lands.
I still remember my first Raya abroad in 1997 when I had to celebrate the first day of Aidilfitri in my classroom, wearing a Baju Melayu and Songkok. There were no rendang, ketupat and dodol. What more duit raya or firecrackers!
But being Malaysian, we are quite good at entertaining ourselves during this “sentimental period”. Here are the top 10 most popular activities which Malaysian would definitely not want to miss during their Hari Raya celebration abroad.
