Eidul Azha

Yesterday was Eidul Azha, the Eid of both sacrifice and joy. I took some pictures and wanna share with you. Those who are uneasy with blood please avoid this post; you may not like the gross things shown in some pictures.



This is our bull that we bought the day before yesterday to sacrifice on the Eid day

The butcher started their work to get the bull down

The butcher(they are not professional. They are low paid labors throughout the year who become butchers at the time of Eidul Azha) started their work to get the bull down.



They tied the front legs of the bull

All the legs are tied together and people hold the bull with all their strength

And he gave his first slash in the throat

The man has done his job and we were hearing the roar of the bull

eamon said...

I think that stomach picture is not a good one to show here.

I personally will show that picture to the appropriate person :)

I didn't know that I looked furious in the last picture.

Anyway... I have nothing to do.That's me and those are my eyes :)

A.S.F said...

Hey rain..... do u think eamon gonna let us see how do he looks at that time....?? That look is only for that moment.

Anyway I don't felt that he looked furious... If I could feel that I would never take the pic of him at that time.....;)

Wow.. this is gonna be the longest comment chain in Eamon's blog!

I guess I am quite brain washed with the movie "SAW" haha.

I saw those bloods, splashing out from ( I dont wanna imagine anymore)...etc. etc. and then Eamon's face ! Whoooo !! My imagination added some extra feature on his tiredness, widely open eyes..haha

Never mind guys. It was just a joke !
