Dear all Muslim friends,
Selamat Hari Raya. Maaf Zahir Batin. I had the pleasure of going to 2 open houses today and I must say that we have had loads of fun just eating - yes the food was yummilicious and the socializing most fun as we haven't met up for some time.
I love going to kak's house for Raya regardless if it is in Seremban or Perth. A notoriously immaculate and trendy house owner, the affable Ruby never fails to dazzle us with her unimitable style and there is always something new to admire in that abode of hers in Bukit Chedang. From the notoriously yummylicious achar and rendang to the designer furniture, every nook and corner is a delight.
This year, there was the addition of special tapai. Tapai as I found out was fermented glutinuous rice wrapped up in a special leaf which was surprisingly very soft and sweet. The achar and rendang packed a punch as usual. In addition, she had beautiful tiny cupcakes which went very quickly as they were so easy to pop into the mouth.
Briyani rice together with to die for beef rendang and ayam masak merah completed the very filling lunch. How could I forget, the very crispy papadum that Sean loves. All in all it was the most yummy lunch and as Garfield puts it quite aptly, "My tank (tummy) is full".
