Malaysia – Next Big Celebration coming…. Hari Raya Puasa (1)

Malaysia is going to celebrate another big celebration in next coming months; Hari Raya Puasa is the joyous festival which celebrates the end of Ramadan. It occurs on the first day of the tenth month of Islamic lunar calendar when you can see the new moon.

As usual, the shopping complexes and all Muslims friends will start to prepare for their fasting month before the celebration of the joyous festival. The fasting month will start on the 10th Jul till 8th Aug this year and followed Hari Raya Puasa celebration by all Muslim and the rest of others races will also celebrate together with them.

It will be a 2 days holiday but the mass population transfer (unlike like in China) will happen a few days before that. Everyone will start their journey back home for the celebration and while others take opportunity to have a long weekend holiday.

Below you can see a hypermarket selling the Giant Bamboo torch where they are usually put it out on the perimeter of their house and lighted at night.

  1. Why is it identically with green everywhere, right? :)) Just like here, too. Nice photos!

    Btw, people are allowed to take picture inside of a supermarket?

    • Read somewhere that green colour is Prophet’s favourite color. hehe.. well I believe I am not suppose to take photos in the supermarket but nowadays, people take pictures to communicate to check with others whether they want to buy for them or not or is it the correct one.. HAHA!!! right?

    • Thanks. In fact I can’t wait for the Ramadan bazaar that are set up specifically for Ramadan and Hari Raya Aidilfitri where I can snap photos and also buy all sort of traditional Malay dishes in the evening before the Muslim break fast. =)

  2. I love, love, love, Ramadan in Malaysia. Every time I go to the bazaars, it’s like a feast to the eyes! The smell of food emanating from all corners, the sound, the sight of food in various colours and form. Oooh. Bliss.
