DeepaRaya Celebration.

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.

Nasi Kunyit.

Dried Rendang.

Kari Ayam.

Telur Pedas.

Fried Popiah.

Dessert: Special Crepe with custard filling. (A production of yours truly.)

Satay, Ketupat.

The broth of Laksa Lemak.

The noodles for Laksa, and some mee goreng.

Exotic Salad. (Pineapples, Bombay onions, english cucumber with dried shrimps)

Kari Udang.

Sambal Asparagus.

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.

foodcrazee, I only brought dessert as I figured that those malay food isn't really my forte. other ppl brought the curry food lah, not me.

gina, there is nothing for you to jealous about! you're right there in Malaysia, to have all these food. we, here, on the other hand, have to try our best to bring these all out to happen.

shiaulin, i'm lazy to type other type of post mah ... posting about food is easy! hehe.

mamabok, generally there are more asians in US than in Canada. I've been there before, so I know. Yeah, I'm happy to be here now, as it is much easier to get chinese groceries.
