Eid with no friends


Another experience of this Eid-ul-Azha was that it was an entire Eid with no friends. I did visit my two friends Rahat and Samara on the Eid day. But it was more like a see-off visit before they went on their honeymoon to Malaysia that night. It was not like a Eid celebration visit.
And then the entire Eid was with family only. Five days straight at home with family. This was the first time I spent an Eid like this .
Not that this was something I did not want. I really wanted this. In fact, I really needed this. Usually, all my 7 days of a week goes busy with technically no weekend to relax at home. On the weekdays I have work Sunday-Thursday where I exhaust my brain into coding creativity (yes, I like to call myself a creative coder). And in the weekends, I usually do some unpaid emotional duties which only some of you will understand. :D
Thus, spending this Eid-ul-Azha entirely at home with family and cousins was something I was really looking forward to. Had a lovely Eid. And in my granny's house, I have like 5 cousins who are from 6 months to 4 years old. So out was really a great week with these little kids watching them play and cry and poo poo and grow up.
Really enjoyed this Eid with family. Alhamdulillah.
