Raya visiting

Went for a whole day Raya visiting stretch yesterday, started from 10am and ended around 5pm. We together with few of hubby's Chinese staff, went to 9 houses in a day. Could not make it to the last house yesterday so we went to the last house of the staff this morning.

Started from Kampung Dato to Bandong area then to Salim and last to Permai and Taman Satria.

A selfie before started our journey. Fresh and looking good at start of the visiting but by end of the day, everyone were tired and full!!

Very interesting to see some fire cracker residue in Kampung Dato. Some of them really played fire crackers the night before.


Very old Malay houses at the river bank of Rejang. And we saw a Malay guy getting ready a fire cracker as well.


Part of open house is eating. I love Malay cakes. Luckily most of the cakes I tasted were not too sweet. 


And of course, curry, rendang, lemang, serunding and satay are a sight during Raya. Few houses have interesting dishes such as cabbage kerabu...


And sup tulang...


not forgetting fresh durian in one house and a durian tempoyak in another house!


I never tasted durian tempoyak before so this was my first time yesterday. A tiny spoonful of it. Enough burping of durian yesterday! ^^

Every houses we went, we had group photos. Everyone were enjoying themselves although haze was bad. In Salim, we saw a forest fire and someone was busy putting the fire off. Hope rain comes fast and wash the haze and heat away.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri! Maaf Zahir dan Batin!
