29th Ramadhan & 1 Syawal

Whew! After a very looongggg Raya break and disconnected from the blogsphere, today is the day that I post an entry about my Raya @Endau (MrHubby's hometown).

We went back a day before Raya to make others wait for us... Hahaha.Melampau x? No la, actually, it's sorta hard to lend a hand with Li'l Cikebum around. Plus, we had to tidy up the home & do the thing I hate most -packing (and unpacking)!

29th Ramadhan

Anyway, we made a move after sahur and after a slight delay due to the problem with power steering belt, we managed to arrive safely by 11am.

Upon arrival, MIL was busy weaving the sarung ketupat, with her fav granddaughters. As I could only weave a mat, I just leave it to the experts.

Every year, there should be about 100 ketupats!!! This time, we only managed to prepare 87, but I suppose that's a lot already.

Then, I helped MIL filling in the sarung ketupat. This has to be carefully done, to avoid being blamed if the ketupats did not turned out well.

Ultraman pun sibuk nak enterframe.

Later that afternoon, everybody was busy processing the ayam kampungs for rendang. 7 birds maaa....

And it was my first time processing it. All these while, I just buy the togel-ed chicken from the market. Cumbersome ooo to pluck all the feathers. Tak sampai hati pun ada.

Speaking of bulu, that nite we tried some kuih raya brought by all siblings.
As we tried this kuih...

we burst into laughter when MIL asked "Why are u guys calling it kuih bulu?"

Hahaha. Actually, we were talking about bulu-berry tart. Hahaha.

1st Syawal

The ketupats are ready.

so is the rendang, and peanut sauce.

There were also telur pindang, but this one is the 'telur bakar.'
Actually, it's hard boiled eggs, over-boiled until the water dried. Hahaha.

Us: the PapaBeaR, BabyBeaR and MamaBeaR.

KakNgah. Wah...dah pandai melawa!!!

Kak Mie's family during the salam-salam session.

Aiii...nak show off angpau je lebih!!!
Like father, like son?
Or like mother, like son?

The whole Manan's clan.

Haziq ni...org tgh bz bergambar, dia berak ke hapa nih?

The first family-Kak Zie & Ang Ipin.
Abg Ipin is the biras I respect most.

The 2nd family - Kak Ta & Abg Muz.
...whose Angah is the fav grandchild.

The 3rd family- Abg Sham & Kak Nor.
I still fail to distinguish Along & Angah after 3 years. So I call them both "Abang." Hahaha

The 4th family - Kak Mie & Abg Kamil.
It's easy to crack a joke with Abg Kamil as he's a cartoonist (Sagu).

Last but not least... our family in grey.

Before we went out, we had a cake cutting for Cikebum's birthday. He was so excited upon seeing his fav superhero on the cake. Thanks, MamaPasha, u did a marvellous job!

Cikebum's cousin was jealous and she demanded a similar cake for her birthday. Hahaha. Kes naya je!

As usual, Ayah & Mama 'had to be' in the pix as well :P

Cikebum enjoying his cake. Sehingga menjilat sudu!

Then, off we went to the graveyard to offer prayers to the late grandparents and great grandparents... where we still (rudely) made fun of the Ibu Mertuaku's scene "Sudara, kenapa sudara menangis di kubur ibu saya?"

Sempat lagi buat lawak bodoh.

And after that we started visiting relatives. I was so excited bcoz it was my first time, but before anything, I was tired and start asking "How many houses left to visit?"

Gosh! It was really exhausting.
