Hari Raya Open House

On the 11th of October, the Zubir's had their open house after 4 days of preparation. Believe me, its not a good thing to do when you've been sick throughout. I had to manage the event, from the food to tents and a lovely surprise of door-gifts. I was working harder than usual since we could not find the perfect timing to get everyone on a certain weekend, so bad that Elly was not there during the Open House. (Sorry, but you know we love you girl!)

Kak Zura,Kak Siti and Kak M all glammed up

Bad thing for me, i had to wake up early for tonnes of chores. Picking up the flowers, buy breakfast and kuih-muih for the open house. Kak M, Kak siti and Kak Zura were the earliest. They were the life-savers to help around. And best part was, the guest came right when i was having brunch before i had the chance to shower. Euw!

Nasi Beriyani and associate

The famous cream puff
We had catered the Nasi Beriyani, so there was the full dish inclusive of Ayam Masak Mrah, Daging Masak Hitam, Mutton Kurma, and Dhall. There was also Rojak, Lemang, Ketupat, Rendang, Cakes and Cookies, Fruits, Satay and many more. Masya-Allah, there were so much to eat you just don't know where to start! Believe me, you'll go home so full you wish you could stay longer. We also had our Kak M and her lovely cream puffs. I bet she worked all night. Chai-yok Kak M!

Alhamdulillah, the weather was good (not raining at all) and the guest came as expectantly. Enough food for everyone to eat and take home. Guest came in groups which made me feel so relieved as they had a seat too. I hate the fact when there's too many guests with no seat and that neither me nor my family gets a chance to have a chat, you know. It was a joyful day meeting up with family and old friends. Its great to be reunited again!

To family and friends (Kak M, Kak Siti, Kak Zura, Aunty Nini, Kak Elin, Aunty Yati & Acu, just to name a few) who stayed from the beginning till the end, assemblying the tents, arranging chairs, helping with food preparations, everything and anything at all that made us smell of food and sweat; THANKS A MILLION!!!!! Only Allah knows best to reward you with such sincerity and kind-heart. InsyaAllah.

To those who couldnt attend, i only have this entry to serve to you.
