Hari Raya Aidiladha

Today is another public holiday in Malaysia ~ Hari Raya Korban or Haji or Aidiladha . This festival is celebrated in conjunction with the pilgrimages performed by Muslims, called the Haj, in Mecca. We have lots of public holidays over here these few weeks.. Starting from Christmas, followed by New Year, then Hari Raya Aidiladha and the coming Chinese New Year and Awal Muharram.
The delicious lemang and rendang

Wishing all my Muslim friends Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha.

Happy Hari Raya Aidiladha to you and your friends too!

I'm not familiar with this festival, though it sounds extremely important for all Muslim friends. Thanks for the intro and explanation to this festival.

Take care!

The lemang i recognise, but where's the rendang? I see something like black beans though. Or is it caviar?

Chen said...

agus,
that black coloured thing is special flavoured dried beef rendang :D

Robin said...

aiyo... it does not look very apetitising, especially if it is not caviar.. (BTW is caviar halal?)

Chen said...

robin,
not as appetitising as Spore Bak Gua? :D
Caviar nice meh? I ate before just out of curiosity how it tasted like..
I don't fancy the taste .. :P

The hamster ah? I also always play with him..
This hamster is damn busybody, as u say always follow the mouse..
And I like to make him jump on the running wheel as well, and on & off apply "emergency brake" to stop him from running :D
U can adopt a pet as well..
