Short Talk:

Maybe it's just me, but I reckon some of the Raya songs they play on the radio here sound so sad. I'm not complaining, I just find it odd.

At least they're still better than those annoying Chinese New Year/Vengaboys remix.

Hari Raya Open House

Hari Raya matters more to me this year compared to previous years. To my Muslim friends, it marks the end of Ramadhan.

Woke up this morning to find myself 3kg less than I was 3 days ago.

To me, it marks the end of my Detox Diet. Woohooooo!

This is Aileen, who generously invited me to her Raya open house.

I knew Aileen from way back. We kinda lost touch for a while, and now she's an English teacher working in Johor. She told me once that one of her Form 3 students reads kennysia.com. Ehhh... my blog is not educational material ok!

I like going to Aileen's place for open house because she always prepares gastronomical amount of yummy Malay/Indian food.

This is chicken korma, a mild curry made with yoghurt, cream and nuts.

This dish is super-tasty and oh-so-sinfully oily. The lamb curry is easily my favourite dish from the buffet table, and I don't even like lamb.

Red chicken curry, or rendang, or masak merah, or whatever. I'll be honest. I couldn't differentiate between the different types of Malay dishes.

It's not everyday you get to see kids in songkok dancing to the tunes of Siti on DVD singing live in Albert Hall.

Having been away for so many years, I forgot how beautiful the Malay culture is. Even back home, I live in the Chinese-dominated Kuching South and seldom get the chance to know many Malay friends. It's fulfulling in a way watching friends and families coming together celebrating Raya.

These are Aileen's friends, Amy and Cecilia.

I always thought Malay clothes look like pyjamas, but everyone at Aileen's place look so fabulous in lustrous traditional Malay clothing. I actually felt out-of-place with my shirt and jeans.

This is Aileen's cousin Amy. She's the only finalist from Sarawak in the 3rd season Akademi Fantasia (Malay language version of an Idol-format singing competition). Gotta love her purple-coloured baju kurung.

I went home after spending a good 2 hours at Aileen's place. I was full after two rounds at the buffet table, each time filling my plate to the brim with nasi briyani topped with delicious curry. You can't blame me for being such a glutton though. I hadn't touch meat for 3 days!




Crap.

Unregistered

Dude, you ARE a glutton. What's the point of going on diet than. HAHA. Kenny, Kenny you're such a funny guy who needs to be serious about your diets so that your shit comes out like sausages=)

Unregistered

Baju Kebayas are the best! :) :) :)

Unregistered

LMAO ROFL SHIT

Unregistered

Hmmm that shirt u wearing looks familiar ;) Is it the one u wore when u were in KL for the awards thingy? Anyway Raya only comes around once a year so its good that u didnt miss out on all the good food :D

Unregistered

Ahhh, korma-based meals! I had mutton korma once, during Thanksgiving few years ago and had since been craving for another servings. Where can we usually get this type of dishes? Not a Malaysian so here I am, very curious about this meal.

And your friend, Aileen, looks a lot like Chinese? Happy Raya everyone! =D

Unregistered

kuching malay girls sure have non-typical malay names!

Unregistered

You have no idea how it feels like to be stuck here in Perth, without all those DELICIOUS nasi briyani and chicken/lamb curry man...how I just wished I was back home. :(

Unregistered

OMG!!! U met AMY AF3??? I quite like her, but I fave are Felix and Kefli.

Can't believe it.. u lost so much weight in 3 days! Lots of girls will be rushing to try out the Detox thingy now.. :-/

Unregistered

Hey dude, Aileen lives in a nice house ,the hardwood floor looks great, not the usual KitKat bars.

Unregistered

wahahaa...

Unregistered

I say yay to this post because of the food you put up here. Dangnamit, I better forget my late assignments and go out raya house-hopping tomorrow.

That Amy's a celebrity.. you know.. like yourself. Two degrees of seperation at that.

Unregistered

I can just hear the fans of you both screaming at that pic.

Unregistered

OMG. I look fatter than you there. Maybe i should go on a detox diet too.

Unregistered

ROFLMAO!! Your diet is just a temporary success!!
I think you should only try it after Raya, if not you'll lose chances to stuff in the real taste of Malay food!

Unregistered

Kenny, you lost 3 kgs of water, and now you put few kgs of fat, oo-la-mak! you watch out dont fall into yo-yo diet..
Oh yeah, we (few of us) think you are getting better in positioning your head while you taking pictures.. improvement ay. =)

Unregistered

am thinking of a diet as well. really wondering if it's worthwhile now?:)

Unregistered

There's always tomorrow =P

Unregistered

well...at least u enjoyed your nasi briyani topped with delicious curry to the max: D

Unregistered

Dude. Those babes, they be sexy.

And what's up with you and your instant 4 kg increase? Bwahahahaha.

Unregistered

Hahahah! That's like me giving up on my diet and going crazy stuffing myself with food.

Unregistered

On the bright side...its as if the diet and the weight change didn't happen... no win no lose lerr

Unregistered

i wish the teachers in my school were as fine as Aileen.... yes, that's how bad they are

Unregistered

but shhh...you didn't hear it from me

Unregistered

YES! You are heavier than I am!

Unregistered

*cOugh* *coUgh* ehem... in this proud happy moment,(referring to ur rapid weight lost n weight gain) I would just like to say,
"I told you so"(referring to my previous comment in the last entry)
Happy Raya~ =)

Unregistered

i wish i was there, the food looks soo good and yummy! got to love Hari Raya food!! :)

Unregistered

I think the sudden increase of ur weight is because you had just finished filling ur stomach to ur heart contents. I bet that after a few hours it will drop to 82 or something lowewr than 83.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Nah man you dont weigh yourself after having a big butt meal. :)
That's temporary. It'd go away soon.
Though the weight you lost detoxing would be temporary as well. :P Wait till the hungry cells prowl on your sudden intake of carbs and fats! :D!! FUN! Hehe!
