Raya is already over and only now I'm updating about our raya trip to Jimbo's house which actually happened more than four weeks ago.
The plan is actually to gather everyone who should be going to Jimbo's house at Yayasan and then take a water taxi ride to Jimbo's kampong, with Jimbo leading the way.
Shortly after we found everyone at the same place, we then got separated again after some of us went around Yayasan, looking for things.
This doesn't seem to be looking good as Jimbo is already showing his anxious face.
And then when everyone got back together again, it's time to head for the docks.
Because there were eleven people in our group, Jimbo had to ask the water taxi driver whether the boat can actually fit in all of us!
Surprisingly, it can, and all of us would have to get on the boat one by one to avoid the boat from getting out of balance.
Watch the video of us on our way to Sg. Kebun using the boat.
Sungai Kebun is a quiet and quaint little town on the other side of Kampong Ayer.
Maybe because it was Sunday, the schools were all empty and residents of the town might be off heading to other places for raya whereas the firemen at the fire station played Sepak Takraw to kill time.
How cool. So unlike Chuck and Larry.
We did a little tour around the place, walking past the wooden bridges and admiring the little uniqueness of the town as the sounds of water taxi driving by could be heard occasionally.
You ought to be careful when walking on the wooden planks though because there are cat poos all over.
So you see, it can be really paloi if you were using new boots for raya only to have it accidentally stepped on the cat poo.

We also have to wait for the bus to drop us off at Jimbo's place but it turns out that Jimbo's mom drove all the way here from home as well, only to find out that the car can only fit 5 of us.
Too bad. Then the rest of us (Jimbo, me, Edison, Nazrin, Shamsul and Khairil) have to keep on waiting for the bus.
Turns out the bus is this little purple van with the no. 46 imprinted on.
The bus dropped us off at the side of the road. In front of Jimbo's house to be exact.
We ate and sang at Jimbo's place. And we also played PES which is easily the best entertainment of the day.
At the end of the day, we were so vain that we took group photos. Lots and lots of 'em.
First it was at the living room.
Then, we moved to outside, behind Jimbo's house.
And then, inside the gazebo.
Jimbo's dad, being the photographer, suddenly had this idea of taking a photo of us while everyone jumped together.
Getting ready to jump..
Wasn't that good.
