I know a lot of you had great fun a couple of days ago busy celebrating DeepaRaya. Yes, I might not be at home now to join the fun, but hey, who said we can't do it here?
Just now, we had a DeepaRaya celebration. It was a potluck style dinner, and around 40 over ppl attended the blast ... Oh, what a meriah night. There were Malaysians, Singaporeans, Indonesians, Taiwanese in the gathering and I never felt that I'm indeed living in a foreign country! I heard Malay language all around ... Thanks to many Malay friend who attended the event, we had all sorts of AUTHENTIC Malay food ... The event was exactly the same like the Raya open house in Malaysia I attended before, except no one gave duit raya. =)
Ahhh, we are so going to do this again next year!
Ayam Goreng Asam.
Dessert: Special Crepe with custard filling. (A production of yours truly.)
The broth of Laksa Lemak.
The noodles for Laksa, and some mee goreng.
Exotic Salad. (Pineapples, Bombay onions, english cucumber with dried shrimps)
Aside from all these, we also had gado-gado (Indonesian food), empek-empek (Indonesian food), roti canai, cornflake cookies, agar-agar, nasi pulut hitam ....
We did good, didn't we?
What a memorable night.
