This year's Raya is not like any other. Sure, you still have the ketupats and mercun and everything. But there's one thing about this year's Raya that differs from the rest-
As I sit on this kitchen table writing this, I feel the urge to share with my fellow readers how my Raya week has been here in good ol' Johor. Raya has been going by swiftly with the yummy food and the little kids around the kampung coming over to beraya, one after the other.
As every Raya goes by, we usually always have family movie nights. Watching whatever nice movie Astro was showing in conjunction with Raya. Usually, Astro would play love stories or even comedies, or basically anything that has to do with Raya. This year, however, Astro has, for some cosmical reason, chosen to show a series of horror flicks, "Beranak dalam Kubur","congkak", "momok the movie" and "Sundal Bolong" just to name a few. I know what you're thinking, and yes you're right. I've never been one to sit down on my butt for 2-3 hours just to watch a movie, no less if it's just some horror movie. But, given the circumstances, I am still in Johor and well, my kitchen-table-cum-work-table is about only a few steps away from the tv, thus, I do tend to watch whatever is playing.
This Raya has begged the question, what is Astro's take on this year's Raya? Is this year's Raya themed "Hantu Raya" or something? Is that why they've been showing these horror movies?
Some adults might enjoy the horror movies,but what about the young ones??
