Yes, this year I’m celebrating Eid on the rig while being in charge. It is not as bad as it sounds because there would be ketupat and our favorite cuisines, and we’d do the Eid prayer on the helideck. The galley is decorated with colorful faux ketupat and as a moslem, I’m just as excited as ever.
As excited as ever, as always as every year, I hate to see Ramadhan leaving.
This year, it is about a spiritual journey. About struggling. About being thankful. About love and family and the future. About how strangers meet and their life would never be the same again.
Happy Eid, for everyone who is happy about it.
