Mawi remembers learning how to weave ketupat from the deceased parents

ZAYAN radio presenter Mawi shared the excitement of Hari Raya Aidilfitri with her siblings since her parents are gone.

According to Mawi, he and his siblings continued the family tradition by weaving ketupat as taught by their late parents.

“Because we are siblings and our parents are gone, this year I will go back to the village to celebrate with my siblings.

“Every Raya we will gather at my father’s heritage house because there are so many memories. This year we will continue the family tradition by weaving ketupat.

“Indeed, knowledge was handed down by my parents and welcomed in simple conditions. Every Eid, I will remember the situation when I learned to make ketupat.

“Because my father is an expert in weaving onion ketupat and my mother is good at making frog ketupat. The two knowledge that I started learning from the age of 9, makes me easily touched, again when both parents are absent on Hari Raya.

“In addition, when I was a child, I often went with my father to conduct marhaban from house to house around the village and this tradition is still continued in my village,” said Mawi.

In the meantime, Mawi is thankful that he and his wife, Nora’ Asikin Rahmat, have never had an issue with celebrating where they used to because their family home is nearby.

“We have never had an issue with where to celebrate before, because my house and my wife’s house is not far, only about 15 minutes away.

“Usually, if it’s the morning of Raya, we will celebrate at my house, because the night of Raya we are already at my wife’s house.

“Alhamdulillah, got a wife who lives near my village. This year I didn’t take a long holiday, on the 3rd Raya I started back to work at ZAYAN,” he said.
