Raya 2008

First day raya was spent at my grandfather’s house in Ayer Tawar, Perak. All my father’s siblings were there except my Mak Teh who were due to celebrate first day raya at her in laws. It’s the same old story, same old people, and same old food. Only this time we had four servants to help around. Menu of the day..alamak..kalau tak gemuk tak tau lah.. we have got nasi tomato with ayam kurma and jelatah nenas, ayam rendang, daging rendang lemang and ketupat, asam laksa, and not to forget kuih muih sajian hari raya. Memang meletup!

Alhamdulillah.. I still get some duit raya even though I am a working girl now. But I get duit raya from my parents more than what I gave them.. haha.. takper..yang penting ikhlas.. :)

This time round, I have only made 2 pairs of baju raya. I normally used to make for myself at least 4 to 5 baju raya. But the 4th and the 5th will be kept for raya haji. Now..not anymore laa.. not when I have to pay for myself. Hehe.. very the pokai..

Second raya, shoot straight to Ipoh to visit relatives from my mom’s side. Here are some raya photos. The thing I like about going back Ipoh is we get to eat kampong style food. Memang best bila nasi ada sambal belacan. Makan dengan sardine pon sodap.

I love visiting relatives. I like the fact that we go to hulu and ceruk to visit family members. Raya is the only time we get to do this. Raya is the only time we get to see sedara jauh. But you’ll get 1001 same remarks every year. “Dah besar dah anak Khairil ni” (Don’t know dah besar memanjang ker or dah besar melebar?) :p “Lawo nye anak si Khairil ni” (Ni yang paling best..hahah) “Lain nya anak dara ni, dulu keciik jer comey. Skang dah besar panjang, bila nak kawin???” (Ahhhh… ni soalan panas..:p) I get these everytime!

Here are some photos to share;

This is my Opah. Everytime I see her, she will call me Ali. Or her favourite line would be "Aku ni nak nunggu nengok kamu kawin je ni" Hehe.. sabar, Opah..!

Ini atok saya. He is 75 years old but his memories are damn good. He can remember things that happened when I was 5! I oso never remember..hmm!

My mother and I. She's the superwoman everytime balik kampung. She heads the kitchen during raya, and that's the only time she cooks during the year.. hehe

My cousin, Anne.

The lady cousins presenting the Kelantanese, the Perakian, the Kajangian and Subangian

The big boys in the family.
These are the mummies
And the daddies

All my cousins except the babies

My dad, mom and brother (my dad is always the spoiler, coz he always forgets the theme color for raya)

"Saya Aizat. Saya sangat pemalu."

This is my favourite guy, Zul Azhari. He is only 3 but he talks like a 6 year old kid.

Azhari's new pair of shoes. He loves the shoes so much that he wears it to bed. The only time he takes it off is when he takes his bath. He wears it everyday that by raya day, the lampu from his right shoe went dead.

He loves taking photos and he will gives his best pose too. Everytime he sees me he would say "Jom kita tangkap gambar nak?" Can u believe that he's only 3?

And he's the only kid who is not afraid of my dad. Most kids would not dare to pass by in front of him.

This is Farah Yasmin a.k.a Debbie a.k.a debab

She doesn't like to be lifted by other than her parents and her bibik. But, if you ever want to dukung her and she cries, the trick to make her senyap is to sumbat food inside her mouth, then she will stop crying and instead she will munch

Do you know that she is 11.1 kg and she is not even 1 year old? Tak rasa nak picit sampai penyek ke??? GERAM!!!
