Hari Raya

IMG_1637

It is Hari Raya today, where our Muslim friends celebrate their equivalent of Chinese New Year.

Hari Raya is synonymous with visiting relatives and friends living in quaint wooden houses on stilts,

enjoying beautifully and lovingly made colourful layered cakes,

eating tasty, gravy laden meat with sticky rice cooked in bamboo accompanied by red sugary rose-tinted syrup,

and see people visiting rempit-style.

But of cause food is the most gravitating pull of Hari Raya.

Simply mouth-wateringly delicious!

Wishing everyone Selamat Hari Raya. Have a great one. May this new year  be one of increased mutual understanding and goodwill.
