Its Eid again…Eid Mubarak everyone!! 😀

Yet another celebration away from home…these are the days when you miss your family back home. Eid back in Dubai, in a Muslim country has its own charm. I still remember my last Eid there, going for the Eid prayers, meeting and greeting everyone. Coming home and preparing a lavish lunch, calling family and friends. Literally the whole country is closed. The roads are lit, the country is awake the whole night, people shopping and the whole country celebrating with you.

Its different in a western country. In many ways. But Murtaza and I have gone over this so many times in the past 2 days, I don’t want to write about it and think about the cons again. So staying in the spirit of Eid and celebrations, we did have our fun in our own way. Actually it was a good day. We had one-dish party for lunch and ate till we cried (my biryani turned out to be a bit spicy). And oh yes, I made the traditional sweet, maleedo all by myself for the very first time!! I am so proud of myself. It turned out to be a lil extra sweet, but my family is known for its very sweet tooth. We played our regular Indian game Dadu; girls vs guys which always ends up with the guys being beaten up (physically and mentally) by us girls, regardless of who wins! A quiet and relaxing dinner ended our 2nd Eid away from family.

It back to the usual weekday grind from tomorrow. Murtaza is off and its time for me to hit the bed too. For all you who have just started their day, enjoy your Eid. And for the rest, hope you had a memorable one. 🙂
