Korban Aidil Adha - Majlis Korban Serumpun 2007 / 1428H

The descendents of Omar Inche from Kuala Belait (of which I am one) organised the annual Korban ceremony on Sunday, 23 Dec 2007 at the residence of Hajah Hafsah binti Haji Omar Ali, whose mother was the eldest daughter of Omar Inche.

The Korban ceremony involves the sacrifice of 7 goats and 2 buffaloes, by the family members and close friends. It could've been eight goats but one got stolen on Friday night - not surprisingly the fattest of the goats was the one stolen.

It was a good collective effort from everyone and brings the 1st, 2nd and 3rd cousins together - some of those people we haven't even met before.
