FashionValet Exclusive: Vivy Yusof's Top Raya Must-Haves
Vivy Yusof, co-founder of FashionValet, shares with us all the things that make her festive seasons special.
What is your Raya must-have food?
Ketupat! By the end of day one I usually get depressed when I think about how much ketupat I've eaten. You can only eat it once a year so it makes it even more limited edition!
What is your Raya must-have song?
‘Balik Kampung’ by Sudirman. I used to sing it all the time when we went back to our grandparents' houses. But now they're not around anymore so we only celebrate Raya in KL. The song is even more special because I won't ever be able to go 'balik kampung' to visit them again. So whoever is still able to 'balik kampung', sing your heart at that song and appreciate it while you can.
What is your Raya must-have tradition?
Salam parents and elders. It is so amazing that you can fight with your siblings all year long, and then you have that one day to make everything zero-zero again.
What is your Raya must-have memory?
Our family is small - it's just my parents who are only children, and me and my sister. So while everyone goes around visiting and having lots of cousins to celebrate with, my sister and I only had each other. So before we got married, we had all the time to hang out and take naps on raya day and just enjoy each other's company. But now that we're married and have to follow our husbands and be with our children, I miss my time with my sister and will always remember that as something very special.
