Raya Celebration 2011

Eid Ul-Ftr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadhan and it is celebrated by all the muslims around the world. Although we are thousands miles away from home, Eid celebration in UIUC was never disappointing. It was always filled with joy, laughter, and most importantly, magnificent taste of traditional dishes cooked during Eid.

On the 29th September, we gathered at 202 E. White Apt#25 (Usamah, Basyir, Nik and
Azwan's place) to have our last Iftar together and perform the "takbir raya".

On Saturday, September 3rd, we had our formal grand Eid Celebration at the AACC. Almost everybody showed up and they even brought their American friends! We also had scrumptious and spicy dishes prepared by our excellent chefs that day. After filling our tummy with all kind of dishes, we had a karaoke and game session. We played charades (girls vs guys), and guess who won? the guys. ( okay maybe they cheated :p)
