'Aidiladha 1430H

My family and I have had a great 'Aidiladha. After 'Eid prayer on the morning of 10 Zulhijjah, my family and I visited my late grandpa's grave, paid our last respects to a late relative and visited some maternal relatives in a neighbouring state.

The next day, we took a speedboat to Satun, Thailand, to visit my paternal relatives after a couple of decades of absence. We had a food feast, sheesha, card games, chit–chat and storytelling at home, and loafing by the seafront with my cousins on the following day. We hope to do this again soon.

Hi Skyjuice:)

Lovely photos.

It is always good to meet relatives after a long time. I am sure the celebrations must have been fantastic. And the ride in the speed boat must have been exciting.

Best wishes:)

Hi Joseph,

Thank you. Yes, it was good to have finally met my Thai relatives again after such a long time.

I enjoyed the boat ride very much. Wouldn't mind doing it again sometime. :-)
