IT'S RAYA!!!!!!

Hi! It's Raya again!!! Yes!!!! We are so thankful that we can celebrate Hari Raya in Malaysia instead of celebrating it in Indonesia! hahahaha

In conjunction with Hari Raya celebration, we have to prepare many traditional dishes. This year around we  go for TRADITIONAL in preparing food!! No more buying ready made stuff ok? hehe We had so much good times preparing Lemang, Ketupat Palas, rendang and many more from scratch.

During the first Hari Raya normally we go to the mosque for Raya prayers in the morning. After the prayers only the whole family will gather at home and seek for elders forgiveness eg; parents, spouses, siblings and later duit raya giveaways (Monetary Gift something like sadaqah). Soon after that only we can have heavy (heavy) breakfast eg; Lemang, rendang etc. Hari Raya is the day we celebrate since we are able to self-restraint from doing bad things and to fast for the sake of God for the whole month of Ramadhan.

So browse down for more pictures of raya!

Hi! What do you like the most in Ramadhan? First and foremost -  I love the food during buka puasa (breaking fast)! My favorite dish for buka puasa which my mom will cook for me is Ketupat Sotong. The dish was originally prepared for the Kelantan Royalty and is now being enjoyed by us "commoners"!

Secondly, I love to prepare deserts during Ramadhan. This year around I hired a personal assistant to help me with the preparation..

Thirdly I love gatherings with friends during buka puasa. We actually had several buka puasa sessions with our close friends however since we were very hungry at that time, none of us had the time to snap pictures..hahaha

Lastly I love the gotong-royong we always have everytime it is a few days away from Eid dul Fitr. Tired but lotsa fun!
