IdilFitri Tahun ini

Ayoh Wang's family

Me and my family have a busy Eid day with Solat Eid in Sungai Udang Mosque and have family breakfast in Kuala Dungun.

Breakfast anyone?

10 a.m. saw us in Seberang Baroh visiting my mum, my sister and her big clan. It was followed by the normal Eid's visit to uncles, aunties and even cousins. By 4 p.m.we were rushing back to Dungun to visit Mok Wang's relatives.

Just like last year's Hari Raya festival, we have an open air family lunch at my late MIL house in Sungai Udang, Kuala Dungun on the second raya day(you can read it here).

Now where is that Rendang Tok?

Anyone for syrup Bandung?

Enjoying the family lunch

I guessed the memory shared with my late MIL, somehow dampened the normally joyous mood.

All the same, Ayoh Wang and family would like to wish joyous hari Raya to my blog's kind readers.

Salam Ayoh Wang,

Sedap sedap belaka the breakfast spread. Satay in the morning macam kat Johor pulak. Kat Gganu pung ada rendang tok? I thought orang perak jer masyhur! I myself made 4kg of rendang tok and it was gone by second raya...hehe

CfS dearest,
I tried to talk my wife to try reach the place at 11.. nampak gaya nya pukul 12 barulah boleh sampai disana.. when it involved the other half ..Ayoh wang susah nak janji.. serah kat taqdir aje lah nampaknya.. ada rezeki kita jumpa deh..
That food were for more than 20 peoples.. dalam bekas putih tertutup was nasi dagang (Mok Wang) beside the satay (from marang).. yang daging warna hitam tu katanya rendang tok (from kelang).. dalam bed plastic hitam tu - tapai pulut berbalut daun jambu laut (Mok Wang).. makan sakan!!

Wan Sharif said...

Lili Dearest,
Rendang tok di adun oleh SIL in klang.. belajar dengan ipar biras dia barangkali..

Wan Sharif said...

Rosfida dearest,
Mm that Melaka raya was good ... glad to know you beraya di kampung halaman..
Bersyukur dengan segala rahmat tuhan.. (Alhamdulillah ada sepasang tu jadilah.. tebeng juga nok dapat banyok ..tapi itu saja yang diberi. 100 x lagi Alhamdulillah) ;))

Wan Sharif said...

Bang Hassan Dearest,
Saperti komen saya di atas.. that breakfast spread was for +20 peoples..
gemok mungkin pasal hati senang + makan banyak ..
Anok anok sedara doh kerek sangat minum sirap kosong di bulan Ramadhan ..hari raya puak tu mintak sirap bandung pulok.. kena layan lah he he
Thank you for the kind wish...
My takziah atas peristiwa hujan ditengah hari raya.. semuga Maghfirah dan rahmah Allah bersama abang Hassan dan Kak Mah sekeluarga

Wan Sharif said...

Mulan Dearest,
Saperti anda saya juga bersalah kerana kurang berupaya mengekang nafsu-makan sepanjang tiga empat hari beraya he..he

Looks like you all had a grand time!

Hi Wan Sharif, I love the pics here. And really miss visiting my Malay friends this festive season.
Love the delicious food.

I remember back in the '60s, '70s during hari raya, I hardly ate at home.
From breakfast to makan malam was at friend's homes
hantam ketupat, lemang, rendang, dodol, etc....
tali pinggang kena korek one more lobang, ha ha.

Thats a beautiful family portrait.
I used to pass thru or stop for coffee those places you mention once upon a time.

Have a nice weekend, my friend.

Dmarie said...

ooh, thanks so much for sharing this day with us! here in western Kentucky, it's almost lunchtime, and this post has made me VERY hungry!!

Dmarie said...

oops, forgot to say: LOVE the family portrait...such a beautiful family!

Wan Sharif said...

Pat dearest..It not so much the food.. it is the atmosphere .. almost contagious! ;)
Time with like-mind relatives and family.. priceless!

Wan Sharif said...

Good day bro. Lee,
I do have a nice but rather busy weekend, my friend, Lee.
Today I have 2 weddings ( 1 in Semenyih and the other in Subang Jaya) and 3 invitations for open house.. 1 in Bangi, the other in Klang and the last one in Kramat.. manage to fulfill tree invitation .. the wedding and one open house.. I was ready with belt with holes to spare...
There are also political reps who invites everyone for open house.. not for me though.. too many invitations already as it is ;).
If ever you came back in Malaysia festive or no festive season.. there will be a lot of us who would be willing to allow you to renew your practice of korek more lubang on your tali pinggang ;)
I noticed not many people share their family pictures.. but then I do not have that many skeleton in my closet!;). Glad you like them pictures
Have a nice weekdays ahead.. Brother Lee.

Wan Sharif said...

Dmarie dearest,
It is a rather late sharing.. I have to wait for my son who took pictures during the event post the picture on his FB... before I could use them for my blogging.. honestly I enjoy reading the blogs better than posting on my own.. ;)
Glad you like the family portrait .. I loved those photographs in your latest posting.. you seem to have some much space..

Coffee Girl said...

Satay, rendang, lemang, ketupat, air bandung... universal food utk Raya. tapi kan, on the 3rd day, ada spagheti, ada burger, ada laksa johor, ada laksa sarawak kat macam2 rumah... best lah. Selamat Hari Raya Wan Sharif!

yohteh said... were in Seberang Baruh... and that was the moment when we were within the same prefecture, same postcode: dua-kosong-kosong-lima-kosong... too close yet too far...

Wan Sharif said...

Wow! you have spagheti, burger, laksa johor and laksa sarawak on your third raya day.. macam you berada di Malaysia aje.
Thank you for your kind wish.. may you find what you are searching for.. Have a nice day Coffee Girl

Wan Sharif said...

Yohteh Dearest,
Too close yet too far.. mm we need to take some effort here.. since I only go back to KT once a blue moon.. maybe you can e mail me your contact no and/or address to or sms the same to 019-9819405.. then I will be able to call you for a teh tarik session should time permits.
May Syawal brings you and yours Allah's Rahmah, Redha and Maghfirah :)))
