Assalamualaikum, good evening & こんにちは,

It's already in the month of Syawal ; where we, muslims all over the world celebrate our glorious winning day after successfully completed a month of fasting during Ramadhan. This special celebration is called Eid Ul-Fitr or in Malay Language, we called it 'Hari Raya Aidilfitri.'

だから、一ヶ月間断食を成功したら、我々に特別な祭り(と言える)をお祝いして、その祭りは       Eid Ul-Fitr あるいはマレー語でハリラヤと呼ばれてる。

Having a splendid iftar at 池袋 (ikebukuro)

The city of Ikebukuro, Japan at dusk

Assalamualaikum & good evening,

As i'm writing this post, it's dated 25th Ramadhan 1433H or 14th August 2012, 8.50 in the morning local time (Japan time). We're in the last 10 days of Ramadhan which is supposed that we search for Lailatul-Qadar night or also be-called as 'night of a thousands month'. Insya Allah we may find it.

I want to share my iftar experience on the last 5th of August 2012. Actually, my friends are going back to Malaysia on the next day, so i decided that we have some kind of 'iftar blast' before he going back. As we gonna miss each other for about 1 & a half months since the summer holiday end at the end of September. So, after doing some homework via searching the 'world wide web' and asking my other friends, i've found a great place for us to hangover. It was a mediterranean restaurant located in Ikebukuro (1 of the many big cities in central Tokyo), Japan.

本厚木の花火大会 (Summer Fireworks Festival)


When it comes to summer, one of the many events that would be held during this season is fireworks festival. Each city in Japan will perform their own fireworks festival. So, on the last 4th of August, i had the opportunity to join the fireworks festival held by Hon-Atsugi, Atsugi city. 

Despite the tiredness i felt after 8 hours of working, i directly met my friends at the decided spot & we went to see the fireworks together.
