One of the perks of being a student in Malaysia are the festivals! Some of you might be wondering, especially our dear international students, why are places thronged with green squarish looking deco (ketupat leaves), fairy lights and lamps (pelita) ?
Hari Raya is an annual celebration which marks the end of the Ramadan month, the month of fasting for Muslims, and the beginning of a new month, Syawal month, on the Islamic calendar.
On Wednesday, 18th May 2022, Metropoint College pupils celebrated Hari Raya by dressing up in green and yellow or wearing traditional clothing. The pupils spent the day learning about the traditions surrounding Hari Raya and taking part in activities such as singing. Moreover, the traditional foods of Hari Raya such as Ketupat, Rendang, Kuah Kacang and Lemang also there.
We would like to wish everyone Selamat Hari Raya.
