Weekends are usually the rare quality time that we have. So, definitely ought to be spent time together unless if there were to be any pressing matters. On Saturday, went to Jalan Masjid India, the popular destination amongst the average Malay Moslems residing in KL for Raya preparation as there are tonnes of affordable varicoloured attires sold. As expected, people were thronging the region like some fiestas and the commotion was hectic. I didn’t buy any Raya cloth as I didn’t feel like buying one; what’s more, I feel like the my traditional Baju Melayu as well as Islamic-accentuated robes are still in good condition. So, I just accompanied the other party scouting for Baju Raya.
A collective iftar at Merdeka Square. People thronged the area! Amazing!
We then headed to Merdeka Square for the collective iftar like we did last year. It was OK. The concept of having mass iftar to held at open space was somewhat an interesting sight. I guess the Malaysian Tourism Ministry is eyeing iftar as a tourist attraction event as non-Moslems also are welcomed to join. Personally I feel it was a good thing to do but other party had different perception on this as it seemed as if a religious-event was somewhat being ‘secularized’ and the sanctity is smeared by the public’s nonchalance. Well, everyone is entitled to his or her own says.
Bangi Golf Resort Club House!
On Sunday, we had a little bit of fresh air. I have been scouting for affordable hotels offering iftar banquets and seemed like Bangi Golf Resort offers one of the cheapest prices in town- RM55 nett per adult. So, I called and booked and paid in advance. If you guys interested, you can log on to http://www.bgrrest.com/web/ and call 03-89253728.
All I can say is that, it is nice to once a while having iftar at hotels or resorts just to lavish yourself BUT NOT ALWAYS. Why? The amount of foods are mountainous and yet, you will definitely be full by eating merely quarter of the whole potion! And that will not do justice to the amount of money you are paying. But of course, if you have so much money to spend, you can always splurge them on iftar at various hotels! You make your own rules. On whole, it is an economical package for those who want to have a taste of hotel dining.
Creme brulee tarlet. I love them!!!
Chocolate marshmallows & dates with some Malay delicacy (“Simpul Kasih, is it?).
Malaysian local fruits.
Hmmmm..yummy! My favorite, Laksa Asam!
Another favorite, Satays!
Bits of Tiramisu.
Selfie. Definitely a must in every single occasion on this planet! Haha!
On whole, Bangi Golf Resort is an affordable place at tranquil atmosphere. It is also a Halal-certified hotel (I guess that is what we, Malaysian Moslems prioritize, no?) and you guys can check the Malaysian Halal Hotel Directory at http://www.halal.gov.my/v3/index.php/ms/senarai-hotel/241-carian-direktori-hotel.
Agar-agar & half-boiled eggs!
People were crowding the halls in Bangi Golf Resort Club House.
Sherbet jelly liquid.
Roasted mutton. Not for me, though.
Get a little bit of everything to make the most of money we paid! Haha!
My potion of rice. Such a not-so-good diet. I have Chinese-cooked Chicken, pepper beefs and squids-cooked-with-bird’s eye chili (“Sotong Masak Cili Padi”) within ONE PLATE! Hahaha!
