Aidilfitri 2011 *

My Raya photos are finally up! Yes, I took my own sweet time before posting them but there’s just plenty to do prior to the actual publishing of pictures and that includes cropping, resizing and adding water mark to each and every picture so imagine how tedious! penat

Aidilfitri morning for us started in Subang Jaya at MIL’s place. Usually, B and I will drop by her home first to have Raya breakfast with the rest of the family. We ate, seek forgiveness from each other, enjoyed the merriment that is Raya and took some pictures but we mostly ate! B was especially hungry that morning and the first thing he said to MIL when we arrived was “Hungry”!

On the way to Subang!

With MIL

Selamat Hari Raya

Raya Breakfast

Ladies of the house

And now the guys!

Happy Family

For lunch, we headed to my parents' home in USJ. The house was beautifully decorated and cookies and cakes were in every corner! Ritz and Ross of course stole the limelight with their antics! gelakguling

Watching TV

Playing Angry Birds on my iPhone 4

Flowers for the house

Raya Hampers

Raya Cookies

Homemade Steamed Fruit Cake

More Cakes

And more cookies!

My parents had ordered some dishes but my Mom did the bulk of the cooking, bless her kind heart! I was still full from breakfast so B and I ended up entertaining guests and serving them lunch while waiting for hunger to kick in. This year, we had quite a lot of guests who dropped by throughout the afternoon. I missed the morning batch of guests but was kept busy greeting guests and setting the table before each party arrived.

Happy Hari Raya from Mariuca and B

Giving Raya angpow to the twins

My Dad had guests arriving all the way from JB and Mel had her friends over too. I doubt I’d ever hold a big open house like my parents simply because my home is tiny compared to their humongous home and I don’t think I can cook for so many people at one go. And what happens if my food doesn’t turn out? Smiley

Entertaining Mel and Friends

Rendang, Kuah Kacang and Sayur Lodeh

Thanks for coming

Forgive and Forget

All in all, it was a busy Raya for us this year and a delightfully yummy one too. There was so much food and we ate Raya goodies for the next two days! Thanks to those who sent us well wishes on FB. Selamat Hari Raya and Maaf Zahir Batin!

Selamat Hari Raya, Marzie and B! :) Maaf Zahir dan batin from me to you! :) May all that's said and done, salah dan silap will be forgiven and start 0-0 until the next raya! hahaha..

What a wonderful Hari Raya atmosphere. My mom and sisters had a blast cooking during malam takbir.. us helping, mom cooking.. coz i can't cook Raya dishes to save my life. LOL! :) Allie and Buddy had a blast.. although they were bummed we didn't go back to my dad's kampung for raya so we din get to meet cousins and other relatives this year. We just stayed in KK.

But still, Raya was definitely fun and full of yummy goodness!! :) And my waist is inches thicker! LOL! :) Glad that you shared your Raya celebrations with us.. I'm just waiting for my sister to upload the Raya pics and hopefully will be able to share them with you all! ;)

Shemah,  September 07, 2011 2:07 PM

I pun dunno lah how to handle open house.. my mom did it twice. First day of raya and on the 4th day of raya.. but the fourth day tu, was just so she can cook her famous Sarawak Laksa for her friends..

KAlau ada big house takpelah kan? hahahaha maybe next year kalau u dah beli rumah boleh buat open house and i will sebokkan diri to come! LMAO! :)

Why you add watermark to your pictures?!! Now I cannot plagiarize them! LOL!! :-D

foongpc,  September 08, 2011 1:11 AM

Although I don't add watermark to my photos, I agree there are so many things to do before posting those photos on the blog right? So much work!!!

foongpc,  September 08, 2011 1:13 AM

Looks like you had a nice Raya celebration eh? Wow! So much food!! Cakes and cookies too!

foongpc,  September 08, 2011 1:15 AM

But you know what, I think I cant stand cakes and cookies anymore especially during festivities. Prefer cooked food and not baked food! Haha!!
