I reckon this weekend there are still a lot of open houses everywhere. Even in my neighbourhood area, there's one open house today. But since today is the only day for me to have a nice rest, I think it's better to stay at home and do the household chores that I need to like washing, ironing and spending time with my daughters.
All right, I just want to upload some more raya photos in this entry since I'm not really in the mood of typing other serious issues. Please enjoy the photos.
Second day of Raya
We received some guests as early as 11 and then my aunt, my SIL and I prepared "rendang, nasi minyak and gulai daging" as there were no more special raya food on the table. Then we had a nice photo shoot with our big family. The next agenda was to visit other relatives until dusk.
Third day of Raya
We had our lunch at my abah's house (where he stays with my step-mom). My SM prepared Chicken Rice for us. Though my abah said that the dish was as good as my late's mom dish, I couldn't help myself but to disagree with his opinion. I didn't say anything in front of him bcs I don't want to hurt his or my SM's feeling.
bukan tak hargai penat lelah ummi memasak tapi mmg tak bolehla nak dibandingkan dgn masakan arwah ma sbb arwah mmg tukang masak Right after that, we went to few more houses before we called it a day for us.
4th day of Raya- BBQ night
My younger brother, Rashdan is really a generous person. He doesn't mind spending his money to buy food for his family members. He was so excited to be able to celebrate raya with his siblings especially me as for the last 4 years, my family and I were in NZ. So, on the fourth day of raya, he suggested that we should have a BBQ night with all the relatives that live nearby. In the beginning, he told us that he wanted to buy about 12 chickens! We jokingly said that if he did that, we could have had his wedding! At last he bought 6 chickens.
tu pun banyak sampai tak habis2 nak mkn dan dah bahagi2 pd jiran2 terdekat It was a blast BBQ party. My aunt ( Mokcik Salmah) prepared coleslaw, mushrooms soup and fries as the side dishes. dgn pertolongan kami adik-beradikla Catching up with our cousins during the BBQ was a good excuse to have a nice feast.
The last two days (Tuesday and Wednesday), I spent some time to go to Wakaf Bharu and bought some souvenirs to be brought home. Plus, after the tiring 4 days, I could only spent some time at my late grandpa's house and prepared some simple dish like Laksa Penang and Bihun Singapore.
How was your raya eexperiences this year? Was it fun and tiring too?
