The eve of Hari Raya..

Normally during Hari Raya eve’s everyone will be busy especially the mothers.. House cleaning and decoration with last minute touch ups, new clothes iron out with matching accessories, money all changed into small denominations as “gifts” to kids, elders and unfortunate ones e.g orphans..Kuehs and lots of sweets plus cakes are all ready to be given out to neighbours, relatives or served for future visitors, and not forgetting the ketupat, rendang and yummilicious hearty MEAL with lots of typical indonesian, Malaysian and Singaporean food.
