To bring more merrier atmosphere, locals adopted others custom like Ang Pow(giving the kids money) and fire crackers.

ang pow for the kids…Actually they only come to our house for this, they don’t mind about the food…

Meat is the main course during hari raya where locals will find new cut beef during 2 or 1 day before hari raya. The recipe will be beef rendang eaten with ketupat.

Looking at the amount of food at every house and every open houses by state and local leaders, we are in a blest country. We got more that enough food.

So, Happy Hari Raya, don’t eat so much, be thankful of our sovereignty and independence.
