of Eid wishes

Forgiveness is something we should all practise. Not just for Hari Raya but every day.
We should celebrate it and embrace it as an essential part of our lives.
There is nothing so bad that cannot be forgiven.
Hurt will never heal until you forgive.
If you are at war with others, you cannot be at peace with yourself.
You can let go and forgive. It takes no physical strength to let go, only courage.
Forgiveness is the single most important process that can bring peace to our souls and harmony to our lives.
Forgiveness is not something we have to strain ourselves to do.
Forgiveness helps you move forward.
No one benefits from forgiveness more than the one who forgives.
Give yourselves the gift of forgiveness today.

Ms B and mini Ms B would like to wish everyone a blessed eid.

Special wish to Kak Teh, Ruby, Fizzy, Simah, D and Momster. Thank you for being part of our life for the past year. Thank you for your words of wisdom and encouragement. Maaf zahir batin from both of us.

To new friends: Cosmic Girl, Pak Idrus, Akmal, Syukur, Darlene, Ms Curvy, Hazia, NJ, Aporn, Hannan, Inah. Thank you for this friendship. Hope you have a lovely time on this day.

To uncle Lee and Daphne, hope you get to try our rendang in Canada.

To my silent readers, thank you for reading my blog. If you celebrate eid, may you have a nice time with your loved ones.

For some of us, this could be a solemn Eid, to celebrate without a loved one by our side, either by circumstances or by choice. Some would probably have met a new person, while others are still hoping and searching. We should not give up on hope. Yet at the same time, we focus on what we have and how blessed our life is.

As I look back at my journey for the past 9 months, there were moments that my life was touched by beautiful people. Regardless what was the outcome, I am glad to have met them. Sometimes we have to take risk and open ourselves to new opportunities. Maybe that person or that moment could teach us a thing or two about life.

*after their passionate kiss*
Christina Yang: I don’t even know you!
Major Hunt: So?

Sometimes, there are things that you cannot explain. No matter how hard you try to rationalise, it simply does not work. There are moments in life that you probably wonder on how you can be yourself to a person, not being pretentious or put a wall around you. Just a moment of peace...a moment when all your worries seem to be swept away...

Thank you for being one of the highlights of my life. I wish you lifelong happiness and peace. May you have a blessed Eid.

Dear Ms B, Hari Raya has been quiet since my parents passed away but I do have parents in law. Not the same though..

Hazia said...

Beautiful entry... it takes a big person to forgive. Sometimes I know I'm not big enough:(

Yeah, the world is filled with new opportunities, we just need to open our hearts and seize them.

Selamat hari raya. I'm back in my hometown for a week:)

Salam Ms B,

Wishing you and Ms Mini B Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri too!

Thanks for the lovely friendship dear.

Salam Aidil Fitri to you & lil Ms B. Maaf Zahir batin.

Wow! Ms B thanks for including me in your special realm. I am touched. In retrospect, we all learn from one another, & we remind one another of the good & otherwise in life.

Keep well dear & hope to meet again.

Ms B said...

Hi Inah,

I hope you are enjoying yourself. Take time to celebrate Eid as well as your birthday. No matter how busy we are, we need to put aside time to celebrate. Every year, I will make sure I am on leave on eid. I know some of my friends dont bother to do so.

Ah, I miss the land down under. Perhaps I should ask a posting there instead to Singapore.

Keep well dear and happy birthday!

Ms B said...

Hi ms curvy,

In total, I've spent 9 years celebrating abroad. I believe it is up to an individual to create the atmosphere. So far, I try my best and put effort to celebrate.

Perhaps Eid is not the same without your blood family or relatives but surely if the bond is strong among friends, eid will still be meaningful.

Ms B said...

Hi Hazia,

I learn that by forgiving, I am at peace with myself. I am able to move on.

Selamat hari raya! Take time to celebrate with your loved ones.

Ms B said...

Hi NJ,

It was a lovely day for me and the lil one. Prayers at Malaysia Hall, guests from morning til night. I think it was probably the most memorable eid for both of us.

Hope you will have a lovely time on this day.

Ms B said...

Ruby dear,

I hope you have a lovely time on eid.

I believe we learn from each other as we have different life experiences. SOmetimes I feel by sharing and learning, we learn to be grateful with what we have.

Take care dear!

Awww....shucks...hehehe...Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to you and to the lil darling..if i was there your daughter would surely get duit raya from me...hehehe...

U.Lee said...

Hello Ms B, here's wishing you and your girl SELAMAT HARI RAYA and all best wishes.
Have a wonderful raya.
You wearing your slinky sarong?
Have fun and best regards, Lee.

syukur said...

eventhough you are my friend..i always had this odd sense of dejavu that we had known each other before... Weird ! Anyway..selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri Ms B and Mini Ms B

Ms B said...


Hope you are having a good time! the lil one enjoyed herself, especially when her fav dish was on the menu. She even changed her baju raya twice (I realised she had 5-7 nice baju kurung which were too big for her last year). *smiles*

Ms B said...

Hi Lee,

Thanks! I wore a kebaya. Had many guests at home from morning til night! I had to cook twice! *smiles* It was indeed a nice day for both of us.

Keep well Lee!

Ms B said...


Thank you! I think probably it is because we had similar life experience, hence the dejavu feeling.

U know, to some people, they probably say that they've met each other in previous life.

I hope you are enjoying yourself in Kedah. Our Eid has been splendid!
