First Marhaban..

Ever since I started working in Johor, I've heard the Johorians still practice a few traditions that might be forgotten or slowly forgotten in other places and this includes marhaban. I've heard the word but have no idea how this is carried out. What I know, they will go for marhaban from house to house during hari raya and that's it.

So today, I've got the opportunity to experience marhaban myself. Our F3 students were having marhaban today as part of their post-exam activity. Then I know what marhaban actually is. A group of people will go from house to house and recite the selawat before they are all invited to enjoy the food specially prepared. This activity can strengthen the relationship in a community and turn the raya celebration merrier.. Here are a few snaps of the students and teacher reciting the selawat.. (of coz u cant see me in the picture :P)



P/S: The nasi lemak served was really delicious.. yummy!
