Each country has its own tradition towards the celebration of Eid. As we knew, Lebaran in Indonesia is always synonymous with going home. This momentum can be very special for all Muslims to re-establish silaturahmi with family and friends.
Heni Pujiati, a student from the University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) from Tarakan, North Kalimantan shared tips for a friend outside of java who did not go home to enjoy the Ramadhan holiday time and how to celebrate the Eid holiday.
Malang City is occupied by various professions, especially students. Of course, a moment before Eid, the atmosphere of the boarding house is increasingly quiet. "That's why we can spend a bit of time and get rid of boredom," she said.
First, increased positive activities such as helping friends who need help, or delivering goods belonging to neighbours and friends. "For me, in the afternoon, I sell cakes around Sengkaling Recreational Park," said Heni, who is currently taking the sixth semester.
Second, to add the impression of Eid, the things that can be done that were by decorating the boarding room with Lebaran knick-knacks. "Buy typical Lebaran cakes. Also, buy new clothes so that the atmosphere of the Eid is still up to date, "said the Indonesian Language and Literature Education (PBSI) student.
The last tip was to gather with your closest friends who were not going home and silaturahmi or go to a friend's house which was actually a native. This was so that the family atmosphere in the land of the overseas was still felt, even though it was not in the village.
"Maybe in the future, the campus can be made a great gathering or free homecoming as an alternative for overseas students who cannot attend the moment of Eid," she concluded. (Win)
