My mom made ketupat palas, this time punya raya, buat banyak sikit for keluarga mentua.. ;)
Ada juga buat mee rebus dan rendang ayam, tapi tak sempat nak bergambar ;D
I drag myself to the kicthen malam raya pertama to cook Serunding Ikan. I dont really like beef or chicken Serunding. I personally think that ketupat palas and serunding ikan is a perfect combo. I dont remember when my last time I had this serunding and ketupat palas, i think when i was kid at neighbour's house, punyalah sedap dan sangat serasi rasa ketupat yg lemak dgn serunding ikan tu. I pernah suruh my mom buatkan, tapi maybe dia pun tak pernah buat serunding, maka jenuh jugak la tunggu hehehe.. Dah besar ni buat sendiri lah senang. Last 2 days before raya, I took the trouble to understand the recipe, punya la baca ulang ulang sampai faham. And the result wasn't bad at all (at least for a beginner). Slightly burnt sebab tertidur masa depan tv, nasib baik DH ada temankan I buat the serunding 3am in the morning dia yang tolong kacaukan dan basuh segala periuk dan pinggan sementara I took a nap kat couch ;D
Pagi Raya Ke Dua, mom cook nasi tomato ;)
I'm from a small family. So we just celebrate the raya within our little home with mom and all of my siblings. And then just visited some of my beloved dad siblings. Managed to get nice shots of family portrait. I think that was just good enough hehehe..
We really crazy about turquoise theme this year.. DH even bought Nike T-shirt in turquoise color hee hee so cute....
On second raya, while mom and the rest of my siblings are welcoming their friends come over, DH and I heading to Ipoh and continue the celebration with DH family ;)
