Every year, my husband will be the one who cook all kind of Raya meals (I know, I know, I am lucky :p). (Raya prep in 2009 - here). During Raya eve, he was not feeling well, so for the first time, I am preparing his Malay-Java Raya dishes on my own.
I started to cook at 1 am, right after we came back from my parent's. I made chicken ungkep (Javanese version of chicken cooked in spices), kuah kacang (roasted peanut gravy), nasi himpit, ketupat, beef rendang and lodeh. My husband woke up at 4 am to perform some quality checks. I passed :)
After my husband and Nabil came back from Solat Sunat Aidilfitri, we sent some food over to my neighbour's house, then we had a family Raya breakfast.
Then we went to my parent's to Raya2 with my family. This is the best family photo captured by my brother so far. Six of us.
