Eid Mubarak is an important celebration for our Muslim brothers and sisters. They live in the same dormitory with us. They are from Blangadesh, Syria and Afghanistan. Their invited guests include one Singaporean, four Chinese, three Russians and etc.

We don't often have such major celebrations like this, of this scale, of this level of participation from friends near and far. It was thrown jointly by Narendra, Nasir, Jumil, Sajjad and Faruk. They were the main cooks. And we Chinese contributed salads and fruits. It was a joyful time. As we live in the dormitory, we had to gather cutlery and chairs and whatever useful from all the rooms to present a great party.

It was simply superb! Thank you all.
