Let’s just let the pictures do the talking first…

Bazaar Ramadan in the neighbourhood. I went here to get food only 4 times in the whole month and that is quite an achievement

The people of my neighbourhood drink this much sugarcane in a day in ramadan?

The cosy little surau we went to every evening for Terawikh

My very first attempt at making kuih sarang semut. I used Ikea’s garlic squeezer to achieve this, when the recipe said to grate the dough. This saved me from all the mess. This is before topping it with chocolate rice…

I love them.

And so, in conclusion, Eid in our region is all about food and merry making. That’s factual, ain’t it? No matter how much I want to be in denial about it.. 😛

  1. My goodness, a lot of sucarcane fibre? I wonder if they recyle the fibre. And look at those ketupats and lemangs. I ate a good measure of nasi impit on Hari Raya recently, but not ketupat.
    Your kuih sarang semut looked. Very innovative to come up with garlic squeezer. Never had one before.
    Salam Hari Raya Puasa.

  2. Kak Siti..
    That heap of sugarcane fiber was just from ONE stall. There were 5 so can you imagine the amount of sugarcane fiber by the end of ramadan?

    Selamat Hari Raya kak Siti! Maaf Zahir Batin. Next year when you beraya at Taiping, do remember to call me! ehhe
