Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2011 01

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all Muslims.

As usual, this cat is decorated with a festive theme again.  The new thing for this year is the frame which surrounded the cat statue.

The squares in yellow and green are not puzzles but a type of food made of rice called Ketupat.

These are the Ketupats on the cat’s ‘hand’.

This year the cat is wearing a green head wear called Tengkolok (traditional Malay head gear for men), last year it wore the same thing but in brown.

And again I have seen this every year since 3 years ago, – the light.

It is a long public holiday this year because usually there are 2 days off for Hari Raya Aidilfitri and our Malaysia National Day (31 Aug) falls on the 2nd day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, therefore a replacement holiday is given on the 1st Sept (3 days). That makes three days of public holidays in a row!

If it is a public holiday in your country, what are you doing today?
