Thank you Freda. Wishing you and your family, Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Fitri.
Beautiful Raya Song
I have attached this beautiful Raya song that I like to share with you,
my family and friends. It brings back my special feelings of the typical kampongs that I have been to a long time ago.
Just before the celebration, our makchik (aunts) and relatives prepare the raya kuehs (cakes) that are so nice with that typical kampong taste. These sweet-bits are delicious!
(In Malaysia, Indonesia and SG too, thousands of Muslims return home from their places of work to celebrate the Raya month with their loved ones in their own hometown. It is typical of the Chinese who do so in China, where they too have thisyearly migration home.)
*Lemang is a traditional South East Asian food made of glutinous rice, coconut and salt. The mix is cooked in a bamboo shoot lined with coconut leaves. The lemang is usually eaten with a meat and dry gravy dip. It's a traditional delicacy eaten to celebrate the end of the fasting month.
