Kueh Raya Preparation

28th to 31st August 2010 saw my house, especially the kitchen to be a center of kueh raya making activities. 2 younger sister-in-law and their families came over with all the necessary ingredients for the making of Hari raya pastries. As the house owner, we only have to provide the oven and other utensils to make things happen.




Yours truly was blessed to entertain these beautiful and loving nephews and nieces.

Selamat Hari Raya Idilfitri Maaf Zahir Batin in daylight will see us Gganu bound ..

Kalau ada jarum yang patah
jangan di simpan didalam peti
kalau ada silap dan salah
jangan disimpan di dalam hati

Have a fantastic days ahead wherever you are.. take care.

seronok betol rumah penuh dgn sanak saudara specially kids.

biskuts saya jarang buat but i am baking cheesecakes now as we speak.

for me the best time during this time is actually the 1week before raya, the preparations & get together or doing bakings together. Cheers!

Waaaaa! dah siap kuih raya wan... saya masih terkial2 dengan

Wan Sharif said...

Salam Ida,
Ha, 1 week before Raya.. then malam letih juga kalau pergi bertarawikh..
semuga Ramadhan tahun ini lebih baik dari yang lalu..
Bila nak merasa cheesecake Ida nie,, rasa macam nak kena gi ke kucing nie. he..he

Wan Sharif said...

Waa'laikumussalam Yohteh,
My wife is the eldest of the three sisters in KL.. so dia lah uruskan hal buat kueh tu..
Ayoh Wang kena layan budak budak tu..Nasib baik depa tu tak takut dengan Ayong Wang boleh lah jaga mereka lebih sikit..
Tu posing sebelum ke surau dekat rumah.. semua bebudak tu nak ikut sama.. alahai

Dear Ayoh Wang,
That pantun is one of the best. It is my fervent hope Malaysians will embrace pantun again. As it will automatically bring grace and charm into our life.

You visited four blogs of mine today. I am honoured and blessed. I hope my postings brought some cheer and perhaps insight.

I am afraid making Biskut Raya is way beyond me. Kuih Raya Ringgit Malaysialah my salvation.

Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir Batin from us, we will be in Rantau Panjang.

By the way, the lives of Islam heroes from the past is one of my favourite topics of reading and research. The Caliphs, the academics, the travellers and the fierce warriors...they earned worldwide recognition and thus the Muslim world was revered and respected.

Salam dari

Wan Sharif said...

Salam pakmat,
thank you for your kind reminder.. somehow you last entry is tear-jerker for me.. may your wish to go to Mecca will be answered soon..

Wan Sharif said...

Selamat Hari Raya to Aishah dan keluarga too.. Aahh.. that nostalgic home tradition.. now that you mentioned it.. it do reminds me of my childhood.. my mother used to prepare the kueh raya with her 2 younger sisters.. most colorful being beleda(agar-agar) kering..
Oh yeah.. this morning in Pasar Kuala Dungun.. ada beleda kering.. RM12 per plastic container.. nostalgic giler..

Wan Sharif said...

Dah siap yang prepare.. yang beli belum habis.. he..he..
Just this morning in Pasar Kuala Dungun.. I noticed somebody selling beleda kering at RM12 per plastic container..
Your satu jenis kueh raya nie.. mesti best nyer.. to know that every member of Pak Abu clan.. waiting eagerly for it..
Pst met and sampaikan your salam to Pakcik Hassan of Al Manar

Wan Sharif said...

I know and your loved one will be having an Idilfitri to remember and cherish in Rantau Panjang. Good to know you loved Historical part of Islamic civilization too..
Take care.. oops maaf kalau ada tercakap pasal you.. especially you juniors at Kolam air in KLCC.. do not worry.. nothing that (if you hear it) will make you uneasy or naik marah.. afterall I am your numero uno big fan, remember..

Ida BorneoLove said...

hee heee.. kalo ada kat kuching, i will save some for you, InsyaAllah.

Al-Manar said...

Ayah Wan,
The best hari raya gift from you is your unexpected first visit to our home. You took all he trouble to find us, making it more meaningful to us. And we could not even offer ou a drink. Now that you know the way, just past the bridge, we can expect more casual visits from you.
It is our pleasure to get to know you two.
Selamat Hari Raya
Abang Hassan and Salmah

Ayoh Wang,
Ni kucing nak berpantun juga.

Jarum disimpan di dalam peti,
Takut lupa berkarat nanti;
Jika disimpan di dalam hati,
Silap dan salah tak dapat dimaafi.


ninotaziz said...

Glad to see pantun is picking up, even DownUnder.

No problem Ayoh Wang. Though I have left Seri Puteri a long time ago, I hear my name mentioned from time to time as the gymnast crazy senior and my books are still being distributed by a good friend to help the younger juniors with their English. Sadly the book FROm tHE wRITTEN sTONE is no longer in the bookstores. Otherwise, I know a fan who would also buy a few?

Anyway, you can buy From THe Gathering. My publisher just sent the final layout which I am editing one last round.

Selamat Hari Raya. Good to know you visited Pakcik. Rudi and I hope we will be able to do so sometime too.

Isn't this wonderful, our blogging community?

BTW, did you see that awful TV3 advert on Hariraya?

Wan Sharif said...

Ha..ha, tak tau bila nak sampai kat Kucing lagi.. As a technical O&G guy.. Kucing is less likely to be our meeting place..
Yang mustahaknya is the thought kan?
Thank you and have a fantastic hariraya with your loved one..

Wan Sharif said...

Dear Abang Hassan and Kak Salmah,
Like I said you are the first blogger to "hulurkan jemputan" and I felt obligated to fulfill the jemputan as I have the time.
There is not much trouble.. I was so used to getting lost on the road.. my family just got immune to it.. although they were at times discouraged I kept on telling them "how wonderful is our host to be" and "peoples outside Malaysia can find you how can a fellow Trengganu guy can not do the same"..etc.
Sincerely it has been our pleasure as well.. Again selamat hari raya to both of you and the "anak cucu".

Wan Sharif said...

Dear CiS,
Wow now even the Cats are into pantun.. no wonder Ninot is so glad.
Ok lah Ayoh Wang cuba jawab balik

Takut lupa berkarat nanti
tercucuk jari hingga tersemat
Silap salah tak dapat dimaafi
hingga tertegak dendam kesumat

Ha, now it is getting!

Please forgive me for discussing one clever cat down under without your prior permission..
selamat hari raya to angelina, brad and other cats.., your mom and family.. Oh, how is your uncle getting on? getting very much better insyaAllah

Wan Sharif said...

Yeah, 3 of us (my wife, me & our daughter) went to visit Pakcik in Pengkalan Marang.. I am sure you gonna love their place.. facing the sea with a bridge linking the main house and the library..(macam KLCC pulak.. the bridge I mean).
We did wonder how our mutual blogger friend can maintain so many good blogs.. Pakcik was (at least that was what he said) about to finish the afternoon class when we arrived at his place.. we nearly deprived them the time to prepare for their iftar.. ha..ha..
Look like I has been rather naughty to your Pakcik..
Oops did not manage to see that awful TV3 advert yet..

Lee said...

Hi Wan Sharif, Salam Aidilfitri, here'swishing you and family selamat hari raya and all best wishes.
Datang your rumah for hari raya kena pakai necktie? Ha ha.
Have fun, regards from Canada, Lee.

Zendra-Maria said...

Selamat Hari Raya to you Wan and family... ampun dan maaf dipinta, menyuci hening dosa :)

DrSam said...

Salam Lebaran Ayoh Wang. A really lively kitchen of yours to my envy. Mine is still quiet with no hint of any apparent baking activities as all those beautiful pastries and wonderful cookies were already imported from the our neighbour's kitchen :)

Eid mubarak buat Ayoh Wang sekeluarga, maaf zahir batin.

Martin Lee said...

En Sharif,

I want to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!

Have a lot of fun and enjoy yourselves with all your friends, relatives and family members in this auspicious occasion where all Malaysians share the same joy.

Martin Lee

Wan Sharif said...

Hi Uncle Lee,Thank you for (being ever so kind) the wishes.. Tak payah pakai necktie.. as long as your are comfortable boleh datang ke rumah saya di Taman Teratai ..
Di Canada ada hari raya terbuka tak?... Be happy and take care of your good-selves always... Jangan nakal nakal to Mrs Lee.. ha, ha, ha.

Wan Sharif said...

Dear Zen..
Selamat hari raya to you , RA, and your loved one.. Ayoh Wang has/will forgive all blogger friend.. kira 0-0 lah OK.. Ha! your last phrase tu baru berkumandang di udara.. lagu raya.. he, he.

Wan Sharif said...

Waa'laikum salam DrSam,
Being the eldest of the three daughters living in Lembah Kelang, my better half has revived this small tradition which reminds me of my younger days in Pulau Duyong.. my mother making kueh raya with her two younger sisters ..
BTW, the two sisters (my SIL) have stayed with us before going off on their own with their spouses.. I guess that make it easier.. they already have previous experiences before...

Wan Sharif said...

Dear Martin Lee,
Thank you for your kind wishes..
Selamat menziarahi rumah kawan kawan di Kemaman masa hari raya ni...,
If you manage to go and visit that mutual friend of ours this Hari raya please convey my regards and tell him that I could not stop at his place since I am carrying a bed ridden MIL with me to KL..

tireless mom said...

Salam Wan Sharif

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to you. Enjoy this raya get-together with the loved ones.

Wan Sharif said...

Waa'laikumussalam tireless mom,
Thank you for dropping by.. selamat hari raya to you and yours too..
Semuga segala amal dan usaha kita diterima sebaiknya oleh Azza Wajalla..

ninotaziz said...

Dear Ayoh Wang,

Thank you for the shout out. I too left a hastily penned pantun.

In poet blogsphere, we are upset with the recent Burn The Koran movement. Please read my friend's post if you have the time...

The advert on TV3 was duly removed I believe from TV and Youtube.

Pakcik's library sounds divine!

Wan Sharif said...

Dear Ninot,
Would have answered your comment earlier if not for some restriction on blogging at workplace..
Seems that CiS has been spreading cat's pantun skill at
Interessant non?

Sir Pök Déng said...

Ayoh Wang,

I think it's never too late for me to wish Selamat Hari Raya, for syawal is always one month.

Lots of Raya cookies you have there, Ayoh Wang!

Wan Sharif said...

Selamat hari raya to Sir Pök Déng and your loved one..
Lots of Raya cookies.. cooked by three ladies for at least seven families..

Pill Pusher said...

Wow, looks like you had a truly awesome raya :). Well done.

R.A.S said...

Hope I have not missed the bus in greeting you a Selamat HAri Raya. Minta maaf zahir and batin for all words that may have seemed harsh. They were all purely unintentional. Those kueh makmor sure do look tempting!! One of my favorites. Hope your Raya was a splendid one..

Wan Sharif said...

Dear Pill Pusher,
Thank you for dropping by..
kekadang your blog is inaccessible..
any reason?

Wan Sharif said...

Selamat Hari Raya to Rosfida and yours.... All are forgiven, no worry there.. I did have a splendid Raya albeit a little bit tiring one.. chasing rainbows in the Land of Bright Rainbows.. scuttling from Dungun to KT and back every other day..
Ugh my poor urat saraf..
