Malaysian Holidays: Eid Al-Fitr Hari Raya Puasa (End of Ramadan)

The Eid Al-Fitr Hari Raya Puasa is one of the major Muslim Malaysian holidays which are highly revered by Muslims and non-Muslims alike. The Eid Al-Fitr Hari Raya Puasa, commemorated by the Muslims, implies the conclusion of the fasting season of Ramadan. The festive celebration is marked by the detection of the new moon. This is the most momentous festival for the Muslims. Muslims starts the day by assembling in the mosques early in the daybreak to execute Hari Raya Puasa prayers. Then, they visit the tombs of the dead.

This festival is hailed with much delight. The young will ask for pardon from their seniors and everybody will put on firsthand attires. Open house and invitations (relatives and friends) to visit their house are practiced. An abundance of traditional Malay foods are served during this period. Houses are meticulously prepared and ornamented with the illumination of oil lamps to welcome the seraphs which is thought to visit the earth during the seven days of commemoration. The festivity lasts for a month in which the festivities are focused in the first three days.

Muslims all over Malaysia commemorate Hari Raya Aidilfitri after the month of Ramadan, the Muslim month of abstaining and asceticism.

This celebration is very symbolic as it shows the triumph of the Muslims who have undertaken a month-long fasting. Fasting for a long period of time shows their self-discipline and asceticism. Abstaining in the month of Ramadan, a mandatory practice, is one of the five stakes of Islam.

The celebration formally begins after the detection of the crescent in the late nightfall of the last day of Ramadan. After the month of Ramadan, two delicacies are usually served. The two delicacies that could be savored during Hari Raya Aidilfitri are ketupat and lemang, both of which are served with rendang.

Lombok – Surf, Sand and Space by David Tann

Bali’s little sister island Lombok has all the innocence of untouched beauty, with a little more shine and a whole lot less traffic than its big sister island.

In fact, traveling through its streets will literally take you back to the days of the traditional horse and carriage, which are commonplace in Lombok. I couldn’t wait to discover this road less traveled. Calling Lombok paradise does not mean it is all things for all people. With a few exceptions, the natural landscape and the traditional way of life have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. Virtually all small to medium size businesses are run by local families. Many of these businesses sell a wide variety of merchandise, where villagers can find food, hardware, and toys all in a single small store. While it is possible to find five-star hotels run by global corporations this is the exception not the rule.

Before departing for Lombok, I had prepared a long list of things to do(below). This may seem like a simple plan, though sometimes that’s all you’re really after when looking for the perfect holiday escape.

TRADITIONAL MASSAGE
REJUVENATING SPAS
SNORKELLING
SURFING
SCUBA DIVING
TREKKING
FISHING CHARTERS
BIKING TOURS
PEARL SHOPPING
