On the morning of raye the first thing to do is of course breakfast ketupat, rendang and coffee; then off to the mosque for the aidul fitri prayers; then back at home every family member salam and ask for forgiveness, the children gets their duit raye!!! yeah!!@
Note that for my family our adat salam menyalam is done quite informally. The normal pic for the salam menyalam is the parents to be seated together, the children in line to take turn to salam their parents. To us that's too regimented.
The duit raye is for raye celeb. For those who puasa penuh will get RM50. For those who tak puasa penuh will be considered for RM50.

Kuantan - KL

Seremban - KL
Seremban - Kelantan
Seremban - KL - Kelantan (picture shown our trip from KL to Kelantan on Raye Ketiga 2007 somewhere near Gua Musang)
When we are in Kuantan and to Raya in Kelantan we would start the trip 2 days before raya. To Raya in KL we would go the day before Raya.
But when we were in Seremban, we actually left for KL Raya morning. We were all dressed for Raya. Reaching KL, we stopped at the Gombak Mosque for Raya prayers then proceed to Atok's place. What a bless..

It's pretty obvious that Baju Kurung is a must to wear during Hari Raya for females. .. tiny, small or big; and
