hurmm..I just came back from Hari Raya Holiday..feel a little bit sad coz this would be the last raya before i'm going to fly to US..huhu..nway the best thing about this hari raya was that i got lots of duit raya from relatives and friends..more than i expected.hehe..some people said that the older we are, the lesser the duit raya we got. but it seems not happened to me at all. i even got more than any of my siblings.hihi..
as for my family, we always being asked to keep our duit raya in the bank. i remember when i was little, i never used that duit raya. right now, i wonder why my parents didn't want us to use that money??!!? hurmm..i think my parents had thought about our future. those money may be useful for our future.maybe those money is for emergency or some other purposes like going to Hajj or marriage or else..who knows our future besides One The Only One, Allah, right?
Like Malay proverb 'sediakan payung sebelum hujan'. We need to be prepare as we dont know what will happened in our future. Anyway, I know that we all in this generation prefer to spend the duit raya for fun. Buying these and those..Me too.. ;D but let just think twice before spending those money. It is better for us to keep half of it in the bank or more. Others you may use to buy anything you want. So at the end you get both benefits fot future and for present. :D
So friends, decide what the best for you. If you think future is more important, then why wait anymore. Go to the bank and keep your duit raya there, before you finished spending those money :D
