Hari Raya Celebration - 2019

Taylor’s Hostel believes in cultivating mutual understanding among our diverse community of residents, as well as providing opportunities for foreign students to experience the local culture. Celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri provided such an opportunity. Also known as ‘The Festival of Breaking Fast’ or ‘Eid al-Fitr’, the religious holiday marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and is celebrated by Muslims around the world.


During this festive occasion at U Lounge, residents tried their hand attraditional games such as ‘gasing’, ‘guli’ and ‘baling tin’. Residents also put their luck and knowledge to the test with a life-sized Snakes & Ladders game with Hari Raya trivia, as residents with correct answers (or lucky guesses) won prizes. Traditional fare was also served as light snacks such as satay with peanut sauce, nasi impit and a variety of kueh.
