Kak Farina,

this entry is sort of what I've been waiting for! Glad to see you've had a good time! I missed 3 open houses myself due to homecoming + homework. But I made it up with a birthday party (the birthday girl and her husband are like parents to me) and a rock concert! Talking about celebrating raya the unconventional (American) way...

Farina,
We had our Hari Raya gathering yesterday, but no band but plenty of Hari Raya songs though. Did you sing?
Selamat Hari Raya.

Mat Salo said...

Eeee! Can't imagine Raya kat sana boleh best macamtu... or that the serunding and the rendang can taste better over there... :)

BTW, cool pictures! Where were they taken?

Selamat Hari Raya!

P.S. You guys did really well to organize the Raya-do. Consul datang tak?

Pi Bani said...

Mat salleh yang sorang tu reti ke makan segala rendang apa bagai? :)

Looks like you had a good time... although I know nothing beats balik kampung. But at least you had fellow Malaysians to celebrate with, right?

Akmal said...

Kak Farina,

Becky, u missed 3 openhses? thts sad. But oklah dpt ganti w bday party AND concert! ;)

Ana, Selamat Hari Raya to you too. No, i do not sing. lol.

Mat Salo, we had beef & chicken rendang but no serunding tho. They get the students to help with serving whc is good so tht takde membazir. It was held last saturday at lakewood. Yes, CG came too since it was jointly organised by MIFNA and Msian CG.

Ummi, Salam Raya to you and family too. Memang ramai jugak but most of them tinggal in LA county.

Cath, terima kasih. itu ajelah satu2nya gambar kitorang berdua at the raya gathering.lol.

Pi, mat saleh sorang tu tak suka rendang. Dia makan nasi minyak aje. lol.

Akmal, makanan except thekuih semua di'jaga'. Students yg serve them on your plate. Kalau ikut suka ambik, im sure tak cukup.

Barbara, thank you. We did have fun meeting other people at the gathering. It would be nice if you were here. Id take you along to the event. ;)

Yatie, of course nothing beats raya back home. Im hoping and praying stil for next year! ;)

Sri said...

Eh, jealous nye. The food looks good and it looks meriah.
Selamat Hari Raya.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Kerp, memang ramai Msian kat cali ni but mostly busy with their own groups lah. ;)

Sri, u and Yatie should head NY or DC during raya. I heard diorang lagi sakan beraya. Ada bazaar lagi.

Hi Farina,

I was there but didn't get there until about 2:30, so I guess I must have missed you. I did see Sharifah - but then, I recognized her. Anyway, we didn't make it the one last week.

I hope all is well with you re: pap smear. I had one abnormal test but it turned out OK after a redo. Take care.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Farizah, by 2.30 rasanya kitorang memang baru aje balik. Patutnya kita plan2 kat blog. hehe.
