Perah otak jap...
Howoe..Should I keep it as a secret?yeah...but I think u'll guess it right at the end of the post...
I celebrated Hari Raya this year for the first time abroad.My friends (Rumitha & Darwin) and I went to my uncle's house in Rotterdam to celebrate hari raya there.It was great meeting up my uncle (Ayah James), Aunty Jolanda and Falinda again.Aunty Jolanda was surprised to see how thin I've become.Practical and Puasa kot...hee..no worries yáll...I'll try to put on some weight...howoe..
So back to the first day of raya with some flashbacks of what we did before that.
Well..everything else will be explained through the captions below the pictures...ENJOY!!!

We met a friendly Malaysian girl from Sabah and her mother-in-law...terus blaja cakap dutch ke hape entah..
What a small world kan...I met my relative, Ziad at the Embassy.He's doing his Ph.D. in Holland.so yeah..
Darwin, Rumitha and I have planned to go to Amsterdam after the celebration at the Embassy.Turns out, Ziad was also planning to go to Amsterdam.He knows well the whereabouts in Amsterdam.So he became our tour guide...woh..woh..
On the way to Amsterdam from Den Haag...
Dam Square Amsterdam
It was raining in Amsterdam.We stopped by at a Café recommended by Ziad.Wrong timing...we were charged the full price instead of a cheaper price...what a rip-off....haih..
Darwin and Ziad tried the Dutch Herring Fish...euwww..not for me...huhu..
The beautiful views of Amsterdam in the rain...
Belle..who is she? Kalau taw kantoi la...

Ports of Rotterdam
Jengjalan with Ayah James and my friends around the port in Rotterdam...

The best part about the pics is that most of them are taken from the view when we were on the bicycles...best kot..jengjalan Rotterdam on a bike...
Jengjalan in Beurs...famous shopping place in Rotterdam Centrum
On the way back to Krefeld
Road trip back home..Nampak x ada tangga kat dalam kereta..My uncle came to our place to help fix the lighting...hee..THANX AYAH JAMES...

First time celebrating Hari Raya abroad...It was fun meeting up new people and widening my circle of friends.It was also great to strengthen the family bonds with my relative there.I had tremendous fun...Thanx to everyone especially Darwin, Rumitha, Ayah James, Aunty Jolanda, Falinda, Ziad and the nice people from the Embassy...
