Hari Raya Aidilfitri a.k.a. Raya is almost here, and those celebrating would’ve surely made the neccesary preparations weeks before, especially when it comes to their festive outfits, cookies, and more!
However, in our hectic day-to-day lives, we’re bound to forget the smaller albeit crucial things that are absolutely important to take note of to ensure we have the bestest celebration with family and friends.
To guarantee you have a smooth and hassle free Raya, have a look at the checklist below for the 5 things you didn’t know you needed this Raya!
It’s not too late, guys, so chop chop get to it quick!
Car Service Voucher
Whether you’ve got a long drive ahead of you to balik kampung, or whether you plan on visiting a long list of open houses this Raya, you’re definitely going to need to make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape. And because it’s the festive period, you’re probably going to want a fast and hassle-free way to service your car.
Check out the Shell’s Official Store on 11street for amazing deals on car service packages for you and your loved ones, that make it easier and more convenient for you to send your car to one of over 45 participating Shell Helix -branded workshops for a “check-up” before you go on the road!
Have you noticed the heat recently? It’s going to be a hot Raya indeed!
As wonderful as it is having all your relatives, friends and neighbours visit your open house during Raya, you’ve got to admit that it can sometimes get crowded and stuffy when visitors seem to be trickling in at the same time. So, invest in a couple of cooling stand-fans that will keep your home feeling breezy and airy. You won’t have to worry about sweating it out in your brand new baju Raya!
If you’re expecting a long list of guests, you might want to ensure that everyone has a place to sit. What you need are a couple of foldable chairs that you can bring out when necessary and store compactly when you’re not in need of it. You could also opt for the more affordable, classic red stools that are lighter and stackable, so they save even more storage space!
Cookie & Cake Serving Trays
Admit it, you know just how tempting Raya cookies and desserts can be. You’ve been to your fair share of open houses and had to resist the urge to open every cookie jar in sight to munch the sweet treats. With these tiered serving trays, your guests won’t be able to stop themselves from enjoying your Raya cookies and dessert spread, especially since there are no air-tight lids to stop them!
We enjoy the company of our friends and family during Raya celebrations, but once the food has finished and the guests have left, you’re left with the task of cleaning up. Depending on how big your family is (and who actually helps you out!), you might find a robot helper handy for clean-up duty. Robot vacuums save you the time of sweeping and vacuuming so you can focus on other cleaning tasks!
