One of the best places to raya is at Malaysia especially the kampungs. Not only some of the best Raya food can be found there, there are also the beautiful scenery, fresh air, the delicious homemade cookies and kuehs, the warmth of kampung people and the bond that binds us all tighter and tighter with every visits we make.
Normally in Hari Raya, people will travel to seek out their many relatives that they have not seen/met. If in Singapore, distance is no problem but if in Malaysia especially the suburbs…distance is a major problem thus every year, during Raya season, most people will travel extensively to seek forgiveness and meet their long-distance relatives and exchange news. Though in this new technology, emails, video conferencing are popular but they can never replace the actual visitings of relatives.
Alhamdulillah this time, I have the opportunity to join them…and BOY! Did i see some old fashioned yummy cookies and kueh (some cannot be found in SIngapore anymore cause most of the kuehs are modernised already hehe!), so shioklah…POWER!
