Salam to all again. This entry covers 2nd, 3rd & 4th day of raya (4-6/11/05).
2nd raya tu, b4 pegi solat Jumaat, sempat gak visited rumah Dr. Zainal/kak Yam; all of their children & cucu celebrated raya in Nottingham tahun ni. Borak2 dgn Khairul, his eldest, & quite interesting to know that his job is developing games for mobile phones. Tak banyak fotos taken coz bateri kong & didn't bring any back-up (lesson learned..). Then off to Dato/Datin's place & pekena roti Nan & teh tarik. Congratulations to Dato for his upcoming convocation.. Dah tu we all managed to ziarah Airil, Rosli, Penghulu Kamaluddin, Roslan/Mimah & Baha (ayam percik secret recipe). Kat rumah Roslan/Mimah lak ada unplugged session, led by Airil & Midon. Masa tu ramai gak yg perasan jadi David Arumugam of Alleycats.
3rd day of raya started with open house hosted jointly by Elyas/Siti and Utz Kasy/As. Nxt we dropped by another open house jointly hosted by Afifi/Nasiroh & Basri/Zan (ada kueh jennifer lopez noohh). Rumah Yahya was attacked next & the host pun sempat bagi crash course pasal beli pinggan/mangkuk/teko thru ebay to Kak Yam & Datin (masih terngiang-ngiang "...99p jeee!!??..."). Dah tu singgah rumah jap to entertain Dr Zainal/Kak Yam, Dato/Datin & Mok (x-rakan seperjuangan 'trolley' Unipart kat D82). Afterward we all ziarah Azman (yg still berpuasa..sabag Man noohh..ingat pesan Tok Adnan Siku) & Ida...dapat gak pekena pulut langkawi + kuah deroyan. Lepas tu gi ke rumah Elyas again & lepak2 before off to Paiza/Azimah's place for nasi kerabu (offered for 3 days in a row..) & the infamous pemangkin..budu (..male ni buleh mimpi kecek kelate dehh..).
The 4th day of Syawal started off on a sombre note as 2 familes departed home from Notts; Shariman's & Adnan's...fotos for this can be found in another entry of this Fotopage. Anyhow, the raya spirit goes on. We managed to drop by Sharif/Farah's place & savour their nasi briani gam...probably sponsored by UHU. Farah kata tak boleh buat banyak2...kena quality control.. While there we met Nora (of Kaed UIA) & family from Portsmouth, story-story la sikit pasal UIA with them. Visited two open houses next, Iko/Izan (tv giant as heavy as kancil??) and their neighbour Hisham/Niza (laksam & lidi-less satay). Then off we went in 3 cars (plus Midon's & Utz Kasy's) to Meor/Noriza's home. While there managed to catch Man Utd-Chelsea game (1-0...sori la Midon..hehehe...as Meor said: asik menang je pun boring gak..). Next we were at Wak Li's (700 questionaires with 100 questions for each...terkehel tangan nak data entry) house. Dah tu singgah rumah sat coz Yahya & family came by...and next visited Baha's place again sebab he called for us to come & have some satay (with lidi this time).
Well, it has been a long raya week-end...and another enjoyable one at that. As frequently asked by Luqman, "Abah, lepas ni rumah sapa....", well...we'll just have to wait, right?...
Til next entry...continue to enjoy your syawal...wassalam
