Salam everyone, hope you're have a splendid Eid Mubarak, which literally means "Blessed Festival." Eid is a great day of celebration for Muslims. Traditional celebrations include gathering with friends and family and having a big feast, wearing new clothes, giving each other gifts, decorating their homes and "balik Kampong".
Food items for celebrating include everything from ketupat-rendang, soto vermicelli in saffron sweet cream, curries, kebab,biriyani and it varies all around the globe. It's joyful event and the central of it has always been fabulous food.
Normally we will lined up the menu from first till the third Eid. Open houses organized by Muslim friends is the best experience in organizing functions at home. Since I do not have parent's my Eid is a simple celebrations with my kids. No "balik kampung" for us". Ziarah to relatives normally be on the third Eid Mubarak. First and Second Eid are more to Open House for my kids friends and buddy. Depending on the crowd...the usual menu and favourite has always be Ketupat-Rendang. I made some Soto Ayam (an Indonesia signature) and of course cakes and cookies.
We started the day by waking up early to pray at a mosque, contribute money to the poor, prepare special meals, and small forgiven exercise among the families. It is customary to exchange greetings so house got to be preared for guests and family members.
So here's are the colourful moment of my 2012 EID MUBARAK
