The Winning Raya Poem

The Hari Raya Poem Contest is officially closed. I just gave a week for Chang Jiang Facebook friends to participate. Initially there was no response. I thought I might just need to give away the prepared prizes to three lucky customers.

But no..there was a last day response. And I received a perfect three participants. So obviously all of them are winners. But I specially love this piece of poem written by Jaime. Wonder who is she..will find out soon when she comes to collect her prize.

Congratulations to all of them!


The Many Joy of Hari Raya Puasa
Looking at the sky,
It is a joyous feeling hereby,
To see the majestic moon crescent,
Marking the Syawal thats so pleasant

Long breaks and ‘balik kampung’ fever,
Joy and happiness to end never,
Family and friends get together,
Seeking ‘Maaf zahir dan batin’ altogether.
‘Duit raya’ handed as gift
All the kids get a pocket lift
Elegant traditional costumes worn
Ohh, it could never be better adorn
‘Dodol’, ‘lemang’, ‘ketupat’ so delicious
Cooked in this season so auspicious
Delightly feast upon by all
Young, old, big and small
‘Pelita’ and oil lamps lit at night
To enhance the festive sight
And so as the night turns darker
The sky is colored with firecracker
Love, joy and forgiveness,
Laughter, delight and togetherness,
All these experienced in this season,
As Hari Raya Puasa is the reason.
