Hari Raya Fireworks

It is Hari Raya Puasa for Muslims. Or Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Or Eid ul-Fitr. (Too many languages, too many variations.) Whatever the case, “Selamat Hari Raya” to all celebrating.

Last night, I fell asleep to the sound of fireworks in the distance going off at regular intervals. Close enough to provide nice white noise to lull me to sleep, not so near as to interrupt sleep – a happy medium.

This was the best photo I got. One of my neighbours had a bunch to set off and I carelessly got so caught up in just watching that I forgot to snap photos until they were almost done.

I’m going to miss the Raya season. I always find all the best food during this time of year.

The Thinker - Borneo style

Decorative wood carvings. I’m afraid that’s all I really know about them.

The guy in the Rong Reng Heritage shop kindly allowed me to snap a few photos while I was there.

The one on the right reminds me of the statue ‘The Thinker’ while the one next to it makes me think of the phrase ‘Hear no evil’.
