Berhariraya

At ChangJiang, I gave away raya packets to my Muslim customers. They were rather sporting as they allowed me to take their pictures and posted at Changjiang facebook.

This family is our regular customer and we alway talk to them. I was asking them what they were going to prepare for Hari Raya. They told me that they were going to have lemang and rendang. Jokingly I told them not to forget me as I love to eat lemang and rendang.

Sure enough, they came on the first day of raya in the evening. They gave me lemang and rendang! I was so happy for their kindness. I thanked them profusely..

This lady customer who is also my neighbor came to me when I reached home in the evening yesterday. She told me she was too occupied to bring me some laksa. She insisted that I should go over to her place right away. So I quickly had my bath and walked over to her place. She was so happy.

I was served laksa which is my favorite but I just had a small helping as I needed to rush back to work.

Terima kasih, Kakak..

  11. Although I'm not celebrating Hari Raya or Chinese New Year, I love getting angpow packets.

  12. Sorry. Didn't know that my comment got duplicated.

    Anyway, since I have many angpow packets, I used them as wedding angpow packets. Giving angpow isn't in our Dayak tradition.

  13. And free food given to us by others is always the most delicious food.

    Have a nice day.

  15. It is heart warming to know that we Malaysians take time to visit our friends of different races. :)

  16. Your customer is so nice to go to your shop on Hari Raya day 1 and bring you food when they usually visit the mosque and their relatives and I thought it is supposed to be the other way round, we go to visit them instead of they bringing food to us. Definitely very nice people.

  17. Your neighbour is so nice too. And you are nice too to make time to drop by her house to eat her homecooked laksa when you are in a hurry to go to work. Really muhibbah spirit!
