Waiting for Hari Raya Rakyat

Every day since the designated date of 16 September, I’ve been hoping against hope that Anwar Ibrahim’s long-promised Pakitan Rakyat power-play would finally happen in time for Hari Raya.

But apparently everything’s still on hold.

So, while sincerely wishing my Malaysian family, friends and all true Muslims everywhere a heartfelt Selamat Hari Raya Adilfitri, I have to confess that I’m feeling less festive than I’d been looking forward to.

I’m a long way from the festivities, too, way down here in Sydney instead of balik kampong at my parents-in-laws’ house in Ipoh.
