November 2010 (Muslim calender - Zulhijjah 1431) has been a hectic month for me. Cleaning up the kampung home (buka rumah) and making preparations for the Aidiladha , attending several weddings of nephews and nieces as well as thanksgiving prayers (kenduri) kept me and my husband busy.
In between all the hustle and bustle, on one of the days at kampung Tanjung Rimau, and with the help of our youngest daughter we managed to do a 'Tiffin Lunch' ~
The menu as follows :-
i) gulai asam pedas ikan kembong Melaka style
ii) kerabu pucuk paku Hj Husin
iii) sambal petai udang Amira
This 'tiffin food carrier' is one of the 2 sets that i gave my mother while the other set was for my mom-in-law many years ago. Now both mothers have passed on (Alfathihah May Allah SWT bless their souls). Then...those days... it was the tradition of both mothers to pack ketupat, rendang and other hari raya food in this tifffin carrier for me to take home either from Banting to Tanjung Rimau or vice versa depending where hubby, me and the children (they were young that time) celebrate the first day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri/Aidiladha.
