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.

Sumo Wrestling

Australia’s Curtin University opened an off-shore branch here in Miri a few years ago. Last Sunday, they held their annual Open Day. Sumo wrestling was involved. There were other things, but that was my highlight.
