Selamat Hari Raya, my dear Muslim friends and readers! This morning I terkejut badak when I found out (from my brother) that today is Hari Raya.
Hari Raya came a day early and I missed the announcement yesterday. So I was oblivious to the fact until I checked my messages at 4:30 am this morning.
That probably explained why the rubbish truck turned up really early today (I heard the sound before 4:00 am!). Darn! I should have taken the rubbish out yesterday evening.
Anyway, yesterday I was in a good mood because I was looking forward to the next few days where I can lepak at home. I had prawns for lunch.
I just cincai-cincai cooked them in my ready made and frozen chili paste. Wah! Nice leh! I don't usually eat prawns and these were gifted to me by my brother (the married one) just before Chinese New Year. They came frozen and were still good when I cooked them.
Then in the evening, Georgina of Five & Two Foods came over to deliver this super delicious Dry Fry Mutton Masala that I ordered. The poor dear could not secure a rider to deliver the goods and had to come over personally with her hubby.
Right now I am imagining all the Raya goodies - nasi minyak, nasi tomato as well as lemang, rendang, delicious kuih raya and much more being enjoyed today and the next few days.
I am enjoying the peace and quiet at home, albeit with two kiddos who keep asking to be let in and out as if I have nothing better to do.
Belle Belle was naughty the other day and scratched me on my nose and lip. Suffice to say, she kena smacked on her rump and was subjected to a heavy lecture by mommy. That will be a story for another day.
