My first Raya visit

This regular customer of mine sells nasi lemak and she used to invite me to her house for raya. But I never made it for two rayas already. I actually didn't know where she stayed.

But a month ago, I was surprised to realize that she has shifted to my neighbourhood. Since then she couldn't go to my shop anymore as she has to look after her grandchildren. That means I didn't get any invitation from her this time.

But on the first day of raya, she confronted me when I was about to leave my home and asked, "Why you didn't come to my house?" I only apologized and said that I had to work full time since my workers had gone for holidays.

Never mind, so yesterday evening (the second day of raya), I went over to her place before I went back to work.


This gift was prepared earlier for fun and guess she was the recipient.

Her grandchildren hadn't seen me before but they were already so friendly.

A picture with her and her grandchildren.

I missed her nasi minyak, rendang ayam and ketupat.
She only served cookies on the second day.

I didn't take dinner earlier as I didn't cook so 
I went out for a scrumptious chee cheong fun with vegetarian curry
at about 10.30pm! 


Yummy!


Selamat Hari Raya, Kakak!

  1. Did she bake the cookies herself? I look forward to Hari Raya because I enjoy shopping at the annual Hari Raya Bazaar :)

  7. How I wished some Malay friends would invite me to their Rumah buka. I missed those years when I lived in Penang where all my Malay friends kept me busy! I loved their curries and ketupat.

  8. You must make it next year then. Usually they open house on first day and you can have a taste of their delicious cooking and baking.

    This year like previous years I been to one house. It is enough because I could not eat much after 1st house. Haha. They keep feeding you non stop with those food and soft drinks. Lol.
