Getting ready for Hari Raya feels lot different with no balik kampung this year but you can still make the Raya festivities extra special at home. Here’s a guide to help you prepare:
Disinfect and Decorate in Style
No festive celebration is complete without a spotless home – and that’s especially true during a pandemic. Start your cleaning early and do it in phases so that it doesn’t tire you out if you’re fasting. Free up some space by getting rid of your old and unused items such as old furniture, curtains, dish ware, and even Raya clothing. Besides the usual vacuuming and mopping, it’s a good idea to disinfect your house to make sure it’s safe for your whole family.
