It's the month of Ramadan, the fasting month. A mere three weeks from now, Muslims all over the world will be celebrating Eid Mubarak, or Hari Raya as it is known here in these parts. For most of the young ones, celebrating Hari Raya is not complete without visiting relatives and friends, and of course, the receiving of 'the green packets', where a token sum of money is usually slipped in.
One 'green packet' we came across recently made us look twice:
The letterings used to adorn the packet was a design we made a few years back:
Though, a part of us does feel a sense of accomplishment having a design used, of course the other part is of disappointment. The proper permission was not sought, no credits were given. At the same time, a small (perfectionist) part feels that that design can be improved. We had always noticed that the height of the letters in 'Aidilfitri' is taller than those in the first two lines. Which makes the piece seem incomplete.
Nevertheless, another lesson to be learnt.
