Selamat Hari Raya to All My Muslim Colleagues, Friends, Clients all over the World!

Today is the day where collective cheers revel in being able to eat at any time of the day. But above and beyond this it is also a day where many old wounds will heal and the opportunity to start over avails itself. I love Hari Raya and all the delicious trappings that come with it – the food is phenomenal and the hospitality extended to me by my Muslim friends are stuff legends are made of.

I’ll be visiting some of them a little later, and I am looking forward to it – yes, because of the food, but more so because I have come to love having them as my friends, colleagues - my family in short. It is also a great reminder that in spite of the pretty crappy things happening, we are still bound to each other as Malaysians through time-honored celebrations such as this.

Cut the ketupat, lay out the lemang and dish out the rendang. I’m on my way over.

Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin.
