Happy Eid

Eid-ul-Azha Mubarik (or Selamat Hari Raya Haji for those who speak Malay) to everyone. It’s a three-day celebration to remember the sacrifice made by the prophet Abraham and the first day here was last Friday. Though you are supposed to make a sacrifice on one of the three days, the price of live animals has sky-rocketed in Islamabad and has put it out of reach for many people. It’s also almost impossible to find a goat/sheep/bull with everything intact (animals being sacrificed can’t have broken horns, cut ears, be too young or have other anomalies).

Sorry you couldn’t see it this year Victor, but maybe once was enough for you.
