Raya story-Terengganu Edition

Below is the sequels of my Hari Raya Celebration..Kuala Terengganu edition:

6th Nov 05-Sunday (Raya ke-4)
We woke up early in the morning for the trip back to Terengganu..after Suboh prayer hubby and I did some final packing. After breakfast at around 9am we started our looong journey back to hubby’s hometown...Muar to K.Terengganu by taking a route of Segamat-Muadzam Shah-Kuantan-K.T..whoaaa..so tiring maa..with Irina jumped around excitedly and I only got the opportunity of taking a nap only when she dozed of..We were just heading straight to K.T and only stop to have our lunch at Kijal Terengganu around 3pm..and alhamdulillah we reached home safely at about 6pm with Ma,Abah, Miera and Remie patiently waited for our arrival..our arrival??no…Irina’s arrival is the right words to depict..huhuhu..sodih den laki bini! so auntie Miera and uncle Remie just made their way back to KL after met up with their beloved niece (and also their beloved sis-in-law heheh)..we had a good rest since Irina had been booked by her grandma and grandpa the whole nite..zzzzz..

7th Nov 05-Monday (Raya ke-5)
We went to Kg Batu Burok and picked up Da (abah’s sister) and went to Kak Yah’s house (Da’s daughter) for nasik minyak she cooked specially for us! Thanks a lot kak Yah!your dishes were really superb! mmg menjilat jari..lain skit nasik minyak dia compared to Johor style..maybe sbb gulai daging dia kot..anyway terima kasih daun keladi! after that we covered the whole area of Batu Burok including Che Da’s house, Kak Norli’s, Ayah Long and Kak Long nasik dagang (not really sure of her name)..fuhh berbaloi sekali kluar beraya dpt pergi byk rumah..as for my babe she was bouncy all the way and only slept bila masuk dlm kereta..during this time la dia dah pandai mengendeng apa yg org mkn..pandai dia ni buat2 mulut tgk org mkn..so kuih raya yg lembut2 and kek2 raya sumer I tala kasik dia..

8th Nov 05-Tuesday (Raya ke-6)
We went to Losong to visit Kak Ti..Losong is the famous place of buying scrumptious keropok lekor and not able to miss the chance of getting the best keropok lekor, we dropped by at the stall centre there and Da bought some of it..hihi so funny..local people here never have enough of eating keropok lekor!i think half of the crowd waited for the keropok were locals..but one thing for sure the keropok lekor were really lip-smacking! cannot find it in KL lorr..around 4pm we went again to Bt Burok to visit Mak Long’s house..the house is really in front of the sea (pantai batu burok)..Long’s house accommodate a place for fisherman to sell their fresh captured-fishes..mulut Irina melopong tgk ikan2 segar yg masih hidup melompat2..new experienced for my babe..jgn tau mkn ikan tp tak kenal perit jerih nelayan kita tangkap ikan yer syg..

9th Nov 05-Wednesday (Raya ke-7)
We went to Pasar kedai Payang in K.T to get some keropok for my colleagues, some maruku and kuih2 kering for my house and I bought baju kelawar ciffon konon2 utk gi open house la nnti..cewaah!..so no more visiting activity except that nite we went to Che Ngah’s house which is located in the same neighborhood area..the next day was the day to wish KL a warmth hello..

10th Nov 05-Thursday (Raya ke-8)
I would like to emphasize this day as the most memorable event ever during my raya stay in T’ganu..today was the day whereby a local people called ‘Raya Enam’. Usually people in t’ganu will perform their puasa enam starts from 2nd day of hari raya and finish on the 7th day of hari raya..so the next day (which is the 8th day) they kinda have a raya celebration again..but they celebrate it in a different way..dgn menzirah dan bertahlil di kubur pagi2 hari lagi..meaning org2 kat sini cuma akan menziarah ke kubur di pagi ‘hari raya enam’..the ‘unique’ thing about this occasion is everybody has to bring some ‘juadah’ tak kira la apa saje bentuk makanan..laksa ke, nasik lemak, kuih muih or buah2an..masing2 dgn juadah yg disediakan dan akan di bawa ke kubur utk dibahagi2kan..duit raya pun perlu disediakan utk anak2 kecil..there’s a hut or people called it ‘wakaf’ to gather there and distribute the food..so me, hubby, abah, ma and Irina went there as early as 7.30am to visit a cemetery of a few relatives..there were such a big crowd there..with people (mostly men) sat beside the cemetery of their beloved one and recite Yassin and al-Quran also they held a tahlil in group, that was okay…but..the most unaccepted/deniable part of this event was when some people mislead the real concept of this event..from my observation most of the women (young women) went there portrayed an inappropriate image..dah mcm pesta fesyen pun ada..masa ni la nak tunjuk tudung fashion terbaru la, baju baru berkilat2, kasut tumit tinggi berbatu permata, make-up tebal bersepuh terang menyala, brg kemasnya jgn cite la dah ngalahkan kedai emas bergerak..gosh!!this is graveyard okay..KUBUR..bkn fashionshow stage..the pitiable part of this scene was when they were totally disregard the tahlil ceremony..why I said this?dtg dah ngalah model busana muslim memperaga baju, then sibuk berborak cite baju, brg kemas hal2 semasa..nak ikut bertahlil skali tu mmg takde la, nak tadah tgn doa pun jauh skali sbb sibuk berbual kat pondok wakaf..haaishh..so not right la..after tahlil settled, they distributed the food…so masing2 bertukar2 food n blk dgn tgn penuh berisi..so that’s the concept of ‘raya enam’..weirdooo..

So after that, we went to Da’s house around 9am, she cooked laksa penang, laksa t’ganu, sate, ketupat and kuah kacang..best!Da..u are the best cook ever after my mak and ma!
We went back to KL around 11am and reached our little ‘lovenest’ around 9pm..tired sesgt but mmg beraya sakan tahun ni!
