Aidilfitri 2011: Part 1 (family and food)

It has been ages since I came back to Newcastle, my birth place...err (note: Kota Bharu ye, sendiri jangan perasan). So this year, the whole family went to Kelantan for Aidilfitri (plus the first time for hubby and kids).

It was really fun coz we treated it like a vacation. Plus semua adik-beradik I ada. We stayed in an apartment. So basically we had cheap accomodation, ample space and freedom like in our own house (boleh masak, basuh baju dan penuhkan fridge). The best part was, our apartment became the main spot for everyone in the family to reunite pagi 1 Syawal haritu. Everyone brought food, Kelantan specialities obviously, such as kuzi ayam, ketupat palas, jala emas, tahi itik, nasi kerabu and nasi dagang. And someone kena cium (read on).

First, lets talk about the apartment. It is really big, with 4 rooms but not so clean (I mean, ideally you need to bring a vacuum and clean the apartment yourself but obviously we did not bring a vacuum the whole 10+ hours journey). Anyway, it is what it is (gambar apartment pun takde, alah, biasa-biasa jer…)

The apartment is nearby Pelangi Mall and Grand Riverview Hotel, easily accessible as it is in town and most importantly there is a Chinese owned sundry shop nearby and the owner spoke in Kelantanese dialect all the time (senang ada kedai nih, turun bawah je bila nk beli barang dapur, trust me, you will NEED barang dapur).

Then, the food. Pagi-pagi memang banyak nyam nyam especially when it has been ages that I had Kelantan food. Hari-hari yang seterusnya nemang agenda makan. I didn't weigh myself during Ramadhan so if I put on weight in this 4 days, I wouldn't know...hehehehheheh…
