Last Saturday, I attended three 'kenduris'. Two being a wedding. My friends and I ate sparingly at these weddings because we had taken a hearty lunch of a good beriani kambing at the first house, (of a close friend), so much so, we attended the weddings as a show of courtesy to the hosts and also to catch up with another batch of friends. We ate little, but chatted a lot...hahaha! Only at the last house we went, I still find some room for another round of 'ratah-ratah lauk' minus the rice! But we were pleased because there was a 'cucuq udang' corner. Panas-panas weh. I didn't take a second look but queue up for psst, guess what?...yes, the yellow cucuq udang! It was so
And, sheepishly, I made my cucuq udangs, yellow. Okay, only this once. :-)
Late afternoon tea of cucur udang on Monday recently...
