Hari Raya Aidilfitri or Hari Raya Puasa marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
It is the time of forgiveness as families gather together to remember loved ones who have passed, and offer their apologies for any wrongdoings committed over the past year, with the younger ones in the family asking for forgiveness from their elders.
On June 14, the Eve of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, train and bus services will extend hours until mid-night as usual. Details in the end.
Take public transportation and have some fun during the holiday.
