It's time to balik kampung and you wanna go back in style because you've graduated from mainstream. These 12 steps are just a foretaste of an ever more glamorous celebration...
Step 1: The first step to greatness takes place in your shower chamber. You need to smell like a million bucks.
Step 2: Your festive wardrobe is a sophisticated collection displaying maturity and minimalism. Your mother will still approve of how you pay homage to tradition because you're refined like that.
Step 3: Whip your hair into shape for the 4-hour car ride. Pomade, check.
Step 4: Call your homeboy Wak Doyok to be part of your balik kampung entourage. After all, the type of company is important.
Step 5: You're prepared. So much so that your duit raya packets are made of money...
Step 6: And your raya packets are filled with blank cheques...
Just make sure it doesn't bounce!
Step 7: You know it's important to stay awake during the drive. Load up all your Raya mixtape beforehand. Choose your songs carefully. (We'll tell you why later).
