Actress Janna Nick’s face lights up as she recalls her funniest Raya memories.
“As a kid, I rode at the back of the motorcycle with my older cousins around our kampung. I remember falling off the motorcycle and into the drain. I think that happened twice. I even have the scars to show for it!” she reminisces.
The 23-year-old, who was born in Kedah, returns to the rice bowl state every year for the festive season.
“Raya is nice because it’s one of the rare times you get to have all your extended family members in one place,” she says, adding her favourite Raya dish is her mum’s bihun sup utara.
Unfortunately, the My Coffee Prince actress, won’t be able to do that this year.
“I will be at Moscow for the FIFA World Cup as part of my work commitment,” says Janna, who is the brand ambassador for a smartphone company.
“It’s one of my dreams to be able to watch the World Cup. So while I’ll be working during Raya, at least I will get to enjoy watching the matches too.”
