Hari Raya for this year was quietly solemn although there was no reason of it. It just was. Not everybody were around, perhaps that was the reason. But there was food on the table as it should be - the customary rice cooked in bamboo, beef rending, Nasi Impit with peanuts gravy and all. The morning seemed like any other but the most important was, to be with parents, celebrating the special festivity.
