 This year Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri gathering held on the first day of Syawal (10th month of Muslim calender) has been merry and memorable.  This year my father will be 91 years old come 22 September and my mother will be 88 years old on 22nd October.  We took the opportunity to take a group photo of our big family, as it is not often that we can meet at one place and time like on the first  day of Syawal when we see our parents and other family members  to  celebrate the successful completion of the month-long fasting during the month of Ramadhan.  For many years now we always arrange this annual big family re-union at my parents place in Bintulu.  Here's more pics taken during the occasion.
