Eid is the event to strengthen the bond between Moslems especially when one works under the one roof with others. This year, I managed to compile the open houses conducted by my fellow colleagues in SK Serendah, Hulu Selangor. It’s all cuisines and food affairs!
The first Eid Open House was thrown by Kak Airin on Sunday, the first day I came back after the 2 weeks holiday in Jitra, Kedah. Was resting for a while went I got her invitation. It was raining cats and dogs but for the love of food (lol!); off I went to Taman Serendah Utama! Delicious curry mee and assorted cookies. Managed to catch up with Kak Shida who came by after I did (at least I wasn’t alone! Hahahaha!). Thanks Kak Airin!

Next, on Thursday of the first week Raya-school day, Kak Masitah or formally known as Datin Hajjah Masitah. She is the wife of Dato’ Ahmad, the Chief Director of FAMA (Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority; well, Kakak knows him well as she is a Ministry of Agriculture’s diplomatic officer!) and happened to my colleague-teacher. A Kedahan, she is a motherly figure and relaxed person. All of the invitees went to her house at the nearby Desa Melor in Serendah and enjoyed ourselves with delicacies such as “Laksa” (yummy!); “Nasi Dagang”; “Cendol”, and many more! Simply delicious! And all of us were clowning ourselves inside the big house. Hahhaa, adults sometimes can be kiddish, in a way. (,”). Thank you Kak Masitah!
All of us thronged Kak (Datin) Masitah’s house at Desa Melor, Serendah! Stomachs fulled!
On Saturday, we had a replacement schooling day due to the 2 days- holiday we took prior to the Eid holidays. Since I was fasting for my Puasa 6, I didn’t manage to attend Kak Nani’s daughter’s wedding ceremony after school. It would have been free food in a festive way, isn’t it? Nevertheless, I managed to attend Kak Yati Amin’s open house at Desa Melor on the night itself. It was a rare moment for me to spend weekend in Serendah but since I was fasting and the other party was having professional commitment (like usual!), I took the opportunity to attend the open house. Buzzed Kak Lin and off we went. We met a lot of colleagues there and it was really festive as the open house was also to commemorate Kak Yati’s birthday! Neighbours, colleagues and pupils thronged the house and the tents erected in front of the house! Amazing! Love the moment!

Came Tuesday on the second week; which was 27th August 2013, the PPKI section (Program Pendidikan Khas Integrasi) of the school threw their open house! Always love their open house because of the assorted food and the efforts to make the atmosphere festive. Kak Fazidah’s Raya songs were played and everyone was so busy savouring the food, including Yours Truly! Love the “soto”, “beehoon sup”, “nasi ayam” and also the non-alcoholic cocktail fused with jellies and fruits! Yummy. Thank you so much PPKI teachers!
“Soto” and non-alcoholic cocktail. Yummy!
“Roti jala” or the net-bread? lol!
Chicken with soy sauce. Delicacy for “nasi ayam”!
Guava as dessert. Oh, I just love Malaysia! So many food! Alhamdulillah!
Pancake? I am not sure the exact name…but taste delicious! Hmmmmm! (,”)
Kak Adda looked so serious while Kak Lin looked so cheerful (?) The rest….just couldn’t be bothered. EAT! Hahaha!
And then, the finale was on the courtesy of Kak Wahida, my Head of English Panel at the evening side. Love her “tomyam beehoon” and whatever I could eat there! I admit that I even eat 3 rounds of the “tomyam beehoon”!! LOL! Well, since my diet now focusing on eliminating the night food, I guess that will do justice to eat as much as I can during the day and compensate that with sit-ups! Hahahhaa!
Yummy “tomyam beehoon”! 3 times?? LOL!

Above all, thanks to all my colleagues for the wonderful open houses. (,”)
People have been lamenting that I am getting fleshier. Honestly, I love the flesh and what’s more, my BMI is perfectly normal at 21.8 as per what my “personal coach” (unpaid for life and eternity! lol) said. Nonetheless, I guess it’s good to start disciplining myself for a regime to shed off the babyfat at the neck and flatten the tummy. And I’ve got to get myself ready for the Penang Bridge Run (taking part in the FunRun section, though! Hahaha!) this coming November with Kat & Efy!
