Eid Fitr in Sydney

Minal aidin walfaidzin
Please forgive me for all my mistakes

Muslims all over the world celebrated Eid Fitr. I and my friends also celebrated it on Saturday at the Community Center, Addison Road Marrickvile, Sydney. Eid Fitr pray was started at 7 am and Ustadzh Bobby from Indonesia gave his speech. He talked many aspects of life including 'mudik' custome. He also reminded us to contact our family and gave examples the advantages of it in the ancient and modern times. For me, it was interesting.

Many muslims from any suburbs in Sydney attended that occasion, particularly Indonesians who live in Sydney. Indonesian Consulate General in Sydney was also be there.

That pray was finished at around 8 am and community of students in Sydney University held a BBQ party at McNeill Park, Marickville afterward. It was started at around 9 am 'til 12 am. Lamb and beef were the main course, and many fruits, cakes, juice were also presented.

I realised that after BBQ my clothes was stinky by smoking. That sting can be washed, but the experiences will not. It will last in my mind. Cause i know, probably, it was my last Eid Fitr in Sydney. Insyaallah...

Even though, it was not similar to what I felt when i was in my hometown in terms of celebrating Eid Fitr, at least i can share the joy and happiness with them.
