Raya Goodies

Unlike someone who celebrate "Raya" in Adelaide.. *ahem*, i mean eating rendang, lemang, ketupat, satay etc etc.... I ate Penang Assam Laksa and Char Koay Teow together with Winn & Sengkor instead during Raya celebration. Besides that I too had Raya cookies (at home lah) :P

Oatmeal Cookies. Doesn't look that sinful, right? cos ladened with oatmeal.. kkkkkkk..

Cheese Cookies. Cheese is good. Everything with cheese sounds yummy (might be with exception ~ the blue cheese? ) :P

And not forgetting the ever popular Kuih Bahulu. Soft and spongy on the inside with crispy layer on the outside. Any special dishes or servings you had during Raya? :)

Chen said...

angel,
I understand why..
*Hugs*

Wah.. u r overdosed with siew chee yoke. Guess u won't touch pork nor pig in the next few days? or weeks?

LB,
*cheer up*
*tissue paper instead of *paper* ala FB style*

I was not around for few days and so fast u were promoted to Overlord status in RPS liao.. with 11312 points up to date at this minute. Really hak sei yan.. LOL

kyh,
oh yeah, it's nice. Nowadays people are getting more health conscious mah, that's why there are things such as oatmeal cookies and high fiber cookies, and there are even high fiber cakes too ;)

Chen said...

misti,
Kakkaka... he has been camping inside FB mah. LOL..

KFC your malay teacher will bring some raya goodies for u. i'm not talking about the Kentucky Fried Chicken KFC btw :P

day dreamer,
CNY goodies are more important, right? hehehhehhe.... Make mental notes DD dun like cheese cookies. How about the other cheese products? ;)

may,
Harkau siewmai sounds equally good too. The last time I had dimsum was... 2 months ago? I'm now eating chee chap chuk. Love the ocipala ingredients inside the chuk :D

*I forgotten to buy roti jala @ the Ramadhan Bazaar pulak.. Aiseh*

Chen said...

ehon,

LOL

keeyit,
I was in Langkawi instead during the festive season, and enjoying the evening breeze and the sunset on the ferry deck on the way back to Penang ;)

selba,
Yeah, there are several different varieties and types of cookies available nowadays for this festive season (besides those popular traditional cookies). Too many till can get "confused" which one to choose :P

rinnah said...

I didn't have any Raya goodies this year... unlike last year.

moz monster said...

This year, Raya was celebrated on flight MH71. Thank goodness they serve satay, sushi, Haagen Dazs ice cream, Yapunese Cold noodles (Soba) and Champagne.

=)

I love to fly business class !

Chen said...

rinnah,
Ooooh... u didn't do any raya visitations this year? I will do the raya visitations at my work place..
*ahem*, i mean makan the kuih and cookies my colleagues bring to the workplaces :P

moz,
Wah.. your "Raya celebration" sounds good. So nice to fly using Biz Class. All these while I fly using Economy Class only (or no class if I use Air Asia :P)

Selba said...

Btw... *read LB's comment*

Huh? What is kumis curry dish? First time to hear it!

Is it moustache curry? whose moustache? where to find the moustache? how does it tasted? Got the recipe? Show the pic... show the pic!! :D

kat said...

Cheh! Here got raya but no goodies! Wasn't around to go to the embassy during their open house.
All those cookies, you make-ah?

Doreen said...

Hari Raya? I didn't know until I read someone's blog the other day not to mention celebrating it. I miss Malay food....especially their rendang and cakes.... *drools*

Chen said...

selba,
Nope, it has nothing to do with moustache. I presume Kumis = Moustache in Indonesian language, hence u come up with such conclusion? :)

I think i have tasted it before somewhere some time ago but can't really remember how it tasted like liao. Hehehhe, regarding the picture, u have to ask LB to show it since i dun have any :)

kat,
Nope, no lah .. i bought those cookies and the kuih bahulu was given by my colleague. Baking cookies are quite troublesome leh.. lotsa hardwork involved.. and most importantly, i don't have an oven :P
LOL

doreen,
Hehhehe... Most importantly is u know when is chinese new year and the other chinese related festival can liao.. LOL

i love their rendang too.. :)

Selba said...

Chen said...

selba,
I think there's a typo there, should be tumis curry dish instead of kumis. Now only i realised... Hahahhaha....

Moustache in B. Malaysia = Misai

mich,
Wah.. u are one faithful customer.
If the uncle/aunty (whoever who sells the spagetti) has more of such customers, then they sure fat tat loh.. Hhahaah...
