With good preparation, you will enjoy a peaceful and smooth Raya

Eid-ul-Fitr, or as we call it in Malaysia, Hari Raya, will be happening in less than a month. So, to avoid dealing with last-minute Raya preparation, here are 4 things you need to start doing now:

  1. Pre-order homemade Kuih Raya now

Bakers and sellers of homemade kuih raya usually have a cut-off date as they need to get ready for Raya too. So, now is the best time to pre-order your Raya cookies before it’s too late. Otherwise, since we are now under the Conditional Movement Control Order, and are spending more time at home, why not bake your own kuih raya? Not only it’s a great activity for the whole family, but you will also get to learn and try new recipes.

  1. Get your baju Raya ready

If you plan to get your baju Raya tailor-made, it is best to have your fabric ready for the tailor because tailors usually have their schedules packed during this time around. Not only this will be helpful for your tailor, but you may also get your baju Raya ready a lot quicker. Alternatively, if shopping for fabric and going out to meet your tailor is too much of a hassle, you can start looking for ready-made clothes online. Shopping now means you don’t have to deal with out-of-stock or late delivery problems. Moreover, you’ll have time to do some alterations to your baju Raya to fit you better.

  1. Prepare duit Raya now

Don’t procrastinate to exchange new notes from the bank. The queue is usually longer at the end of Ramadan. So, it’s better to do it now. Also, start collecting duit raya packets; you never know how many you need. The more you have the better, and you can even use these packets next year.

  1. Get your house ready for Raya

It is always wise to get your house ready for Raya now because you will become more occupied with family, relatives and friends soon. The main goal here is to create a comfortable space for your guests. Even if you only have a small number of guests, having more space in your home, especially the living room and kitchen area is necessary to improve your home’s traffic, as well as to create the festive atmosphere. So, you will need to declutter your home and rearrange your furniture. The smartest way to create more space at home is to identify items you don’t need regularly and then store them away at a self storage facility.
