Selamat Hari Raya~!!

I think it is more appropriate for me to say Happy Raya Holidays.. haha.. I had a miserable 1 week holidays with everyday had no choice but MUST study altough the time may not be enough to read all. Had to think twice for invitation to go out as procastinator champ (ME) will never have sufficient time..haha Yesterday, my bro in law asked me to draft a simple greeting message in BM. Wow..long time din use BM.. will try use it one day for blogging if i able to find a suitable topic.. This is how the message looked like: Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri! kepada anda dan sekeluarga. Sambutlah dengan riang dan gembira. Haha.. any comment?
Well, i saw something interesting in the news an hour ago.. Some 160 Hindraf supporters visited the annual Hari Raya Aidilfitri open house hosted by the Prime Minister at PWTC. I saw the group was shouting something but wasn't cleared what it is. It seem they have been denied for entry to the PWTC hall.
So, according to the Star, the group together with their children met with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. He was given a teddy bear and a Hari Raya card by six-year-old W. Vwaishhnavi, the daughter of Hindraf (Hindu Rights Action Force) chairman P. Waythamoorthy. But of course, the news do not show this.. they only potray the drawbacks of these groups.
Continue read the news: Waythamoorthy’s wife K. Shanti said the card contained a message asking Abdullah to release Hindraf Internal Security Act (ISA) detainees. Waythamoorthy has been living in London since last December after his colleagues M. Manoharan, P. Uthayakumar, V. Ganabatirau, R. Kenghadharan and K. Vasanthakumar were detained under the ISA for organising a protest rally in November, 2007.
“Our message is that we want our heroes released. It is an open house and we can come as we want. During Hari Raya, you are supposed to ask for forgiveness.“So we forgive Umno’s sins against the Indian community. We just want the detainees released,” said Shanti.
Clad in orange T-shirts, the supporters gathered outside the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) around 11am on Wednesday and joined the public queue at noon. After about an hour, they were ushered into one of the dining halls but did not get to meet Abdullah.“We are not here for the food and drinks. We want to pass a message to the Prime Minister,” said Shanti.
Undeterred, they exited and re-entered via the entry meant for VIPs, causing a loud commotion as security personnel tried to restrict them.
After 10 minutes, a compromise was reached and the group was allowed to join the public queue to greet the Prime Minister. They waited patiently and managed to pass the teddy bear and card to Abdullah at about 2pm.
Well, do i heard it wrong? HINDRAF forgive UMNO sins? I dun think is possible even though with the release of the detainee. See, every 1 know that not those written under Malaysia Constitution have the rights or being in the power of ISA but is the party start with an U initial.
Back to Raya, my mom's 'friends' gave her lemang and ketupat with rendang chicken and satay beefs. So, I got the chance to taste Malay foods again. The foods is nice but not recommendable for frequently consumed. As you all know, a lot of 'santans' and chilis & meats containing 'luxurious' layer of fats.
BTW, i am being commanded not to go back Cheras so early.. aiks~~ Here is the Wonderland and not suitable to OT somemore. Being scolded for that..haha..
