Eid mubarak, friends! Sorry I took a long break without a precaution. I’m really bad at managing my online and real life. Turned out Ramadan this year was more exhausting that I thought it would be; with me having to cook for sahur early in the morning, it felt like the day was way shorter than 24 hours. I felt so burned out, especially when Eid was coming closer and Eid shopping had to start. It was all so crazy!
I still think it’s funny that both Afief and I call Lampung our hometown. He was born and raised in the border region between Pesawaran and Pringsewu, while I go to North Lampung every year for Eid because my Granny lives there. I always imagined going ‘mudik’ (=back to one’s hometown for the holiday) to my (then future) husband’s hometown somewhere in eastern Java and no longer going mudik to Lampung. But no; I still went to Lampung for Eid this year. And I’m going to Lampung for all the Eids to come. It’s amazing. Haha!
Also, we took Miss Jess to her very first car ride which was really a long road trip. She didn’t see that coming and became kinda stressed during the trip. But as soon as she arrived in Negararatu, she found her freedom in the form of trees. She climbed trees, the roof of Granny’s house, and all the furniture inside the house. She had so much fun.
That poor thing wanted to chew on the birds, but the humans wouldn’t let her. She was seriously mad.
We stayed in Lampung for 10 days and went back to Bandung last Wednesday. It was the longest holiday I have ever had (or so I think), since we usually stay for only about 7 days. We didn’t do much but it was fun anyway.
Do you celebrate Eid? How was your Eid this year?
