It's been quite a while since this blog is updated. I've not been that busy really, but not having much to do tends to make one not want to do anything...if that makes sense to you! Anyway, we're still in the month of Syawal which means the Eid celebrations are still going strong. By the way, today is our last day of our non-obligatory 6 days of after-Ramadhan fasting. We've left them a bit too late, due to unforeseen circumstances... One of them being having to attend Eid feasts. Like the one we went to last Monday; it was held by PERMINT for its employees. It was quite a grand affair, located at the Taman Tamaddun Islam (I have yet to explore this interesting ground). Here are some pics from the event:
|The cendol stall..|
|One of my favourite; the tapai (or fermented glutainous rice - God, that sounds scary..)|
|The amazing way the tapai is wrapped - must be only in Terengganu...|
|Not one of my favourites - the jala emas (literally golden net?). Made from egg yolks; tastes too 'eggy' and of course laden with cholestrol (no offence Terengganuans and Kelantaneses!)|
|Some of the 'food-stalls' - they have nasi beriani, nasi dagang, nasi minyak (no nasi kerabu..aargh!), lemang, ketupat, bla,bla...|
Now, this is another feast we attended - by accident! Last Friday we went for our usual exercise at the park, and lo and behold, everyone there is invited to an Eid feast organised by the park's Recreational Society! As the saying goes 'Rezeki jangan di tolak...' No wonder there was an extraodinary number of people at the park that day! However, we made sure that we cover an extra round of walking to get rid of the unexpected calories we were about to consume...
