Visiting Uncles and Aunties

I am a 232 days / 7 months 3 weeks & 1 day old baby

Hari Raya Idul Fitri 1430 / 2009 has gone by for seven days now. And as a part of tradition in Indonesia, we spend the first seven days after Idul Fitri to visit each other's house called silaturrahmi.

The younger in family tree used to visit the elder first. For example, we visit our uncles and aunties first before they visit us later.

I have many grand fathers and grand mothers from dad and mom's side.


A night before Idul Fitri, I joined dad and mom visiting dad's uncles and aunties in Jalan Murcoyo, Gondanglegi, Malang. They are (as dad call them) man Abdul Wahab Muzakki and his wife bulek Ruqoyyah; bik Masmu'ah or just bik Mu'ah; bulek Tri.

Five days later, on Thursday 24 September 2009 I joined dad and mom to visit mom's uncles and aunties in Malang. A tiring trip but exciting to meet many sisters and brothers of mine.
