Assalamu'alaikum. Last Eid ul Fitri I didn't get to wear exactly two of my new clothes for I chose to leave them behind to be worn in KL. Well, at least that was the actual plan but it just didn't happen. Then throughout the year I bought a few new sarees and sent them to the tailor as usual, only to end up wearing one of them for my cousin's wedding. Entered the lycra maxi dresses. Practical-wise, I began to quickly prefer them over trickier modern kurungs, understandably. So I decided to 'marinate' the eid outfits together with the new sarees until this very Syawal, which was by all means unprecedented, to say the least.
However, I did send another two different sarees exclusively for this raya and made them into a modern kurung and a kebaya. The modern kurung I did wear as planned on the 1st day of Syawal 1435H Monday 28th July 2014. Heheh. The kebaya I still contemplate either to wear or marinate one year round. Anyways, let's just cross the bridge when it comes, shall we?
1st Syawal: The only new outfit fresh from oven - modern kurung.
2nd Syawal: Turquoise saree modern kurung.
3rd Syawal: Royal Yellow Pahang Kurung - I went to get green-base lace and sew it myself to spice things up a bit.
5th Syawal: Another saree modern kurung.
I didn't go anywhere on the 4th day and just lazied around at my in-laws' before going off to Temerloh the following day. And guess what? I still have one kebaya from last raya and another one from this raya that I don't know when to wear! This has to stop, nai. Stop buying clothes! Talk to the hand, though.
But seriously, I must have gotten really old.. I didn't even have new shoes or hijabs for this Eid - just make do with the existing ones at home. As long as everybody that mattered got what they deserved, I couldn't be happier. I wish I could give more but yeah, Allah Knows Best.
Thanks for reading this, fellas. Take care!
