We had good Hari Raya open house, many came and we had good time!



Some of our good friends at the open house.


Happy Campers!



They came, they saw, and they were happy and busy concentrating!



Iaian and Maznoor! Great couple!







Hiyall!

It was somewhat a tough preparation for this year's Raya open house when both Marion and I pulled off and basically executed a soiree of the century, well as far as we are concerned considering Marion was hospitalised and came out okay. Well, over one hundred people came, including Stephen Francis, and we had a good time.
We had masak lemak cili padi pucuk ubi with duck eggs, curry chicken filled with lady fingers, brinjal, tomatoes, big chilies, and potatoes and the curry is that famous Curry Cap 'O' from Kedah, my sisters rendang, lemang, ketupat with a very special ketupat sauce made by my orang bunian friend, my famous "Rusdi's Madness" which is basically chopped onions mixed with chilies and lime peel, lime juice drowned with my favourite Kicap Tamin and one secret ingredient, special sambal chili from Kelantan, green pickled chilies, and about slightly over a six kilos of rice were consumed.
The best part was those who came are truly people, new people, that Marion and I truly liked! Especially Iaian and his lovely partnerMaznoor! So I posted some pictures for me to share with those who couldn't make it due to traffic jam, and those who suffered and got infected by Black Death and from plague and other communicable diseases, as their excuses for not coming!
Cheers!

hey rushdi,
great party especially the lemang !...is that lemang by any chance from Taiping ?..... I was feeling rather edgy in the later part of the evening....you know..withdrawal symptoms....but a quick shot or double, would have put me in better "spirits" !
Anyways thanks for the invite and regards to Marion and that elusive pussy of yours Gymgymp ?
Cheers man !

Hei shanghaifishead moron, a simple "thanks for the great time" would have suffice! And my name is spelled RUSDI, not RUSHDI AND IT is SALAM not Salim or Salem Mo! You are lucky I like your family!
Cheers
