Aidil Adha...

Salam everyone...
I'm tired and sleepy tapi nak menulis jugak. Yelah, dah nak tiga hari Raya Korban, and I'm busy as usual even though I did not travel back to my hometown, Ipoh. MyC has been busy too going through her preparation for her exam in a weeks' time; so, I don't see the need to spend Raya with my mother & Co. this time. Still we celebrated in all the merriment of a festival observed albeit low-keyed. MyC, for one is happy when her papa bought her this:

Hehehee)) The only Raya dessert for us from that Recipe Rahsia!
 
This year's Raya Haji, when I'm not cooking for my mother, the menu I planned is not that elaborate...



 Breakfast of ketupat palas berjagung and rendang dinding.
Masa ni dah siap masak Ayam masak merah..
nasi tomato pun dah siap tapi belum nak makan lagi...


 Simple aje kali ni...

I wasn't expecting any visitors this time, so I left for my aunt's house to have lunch with her. I packed some of my home-cooked dishes for Wan Intan as we always do for many years when arwah PahChu was around. And hey, what do you know when I got to her place? The same lunch spread I would get at home only hers was made merrier with many people joining in. Wan Intan's cousins came too and we had a blast of time. Let's check her table!
 Nasi tomato, ayam masak merah, stir-fried mixed vegetables, 
ketupat, nasi himpit, rendang ayam, kuah kacang...

 We cleared the table to make way for my cousin Anje's desserts of
Marble Orange cake (in the background), pudding and....
Red Velvet Cake...
Anje was not satisfied with her RV, but I convinced her it was the best I ever tasted
and she said, 'kak Lili you're so positive! But I'm not going to eat anything now. I'm so frustrated!' 
Hahaha! I saw her tucking in my food in the kitchen...
By the way, Anje just came back from England for good and she loves baking. She told me
the flour she used in England is of better quality and that explained the dense RV. 
I can only laugh...

Azlin, Anje's elder sister, in action...

All in all, one whole day of non-stop raining and eating, and in the company of wonderful people, 
I can only say this: because it's family, it is the best party in the world! ;-)

At 3pm, I see myself at my dining table and EAT again!
Well, I blame the rain..hehe!

Bye for now...

Dear Ayoh Wang,

Satu hari jer makan macam Raja. Lepas tu, nak cari lauk bening-bening, sambal belacan and ulam2. Hahaha! Apsal jauh tempat makan from your office? Ini kena bawak bekal ni. Atau pun good for dieting ni. Oh, you've mentioned there...hehe
