Hari Raya Celebration in the Netherlands

Here in the Netherlands, we celebrated our Eidul Fitri on Wednesday, 1 October 2008 and as usual, Malaysian Embassy in the Netherlands hosted the "Sembahyang Sunat Hari Raya" for all their muslim citizen followed by the "makan-makan" gathering which was open to all Malaysians.

It was a warm and colorful event despite the cold and the wet weather outside. Everyone came in their best attire complete with "songkok and samping" for the men. Being far away from home does not stop us from celebrating Hari Raya the way we should celebrate it just like the song I used to hear when I was little, sang by D.J.Dave which, part of the lyric says, "cantik berseri-seri, tua dan muda berpakaian serba baru". But to me it's not the matter of baru or lama, but the spirit that you put for the occasion.

The food were kindly prepared by the Embassy's staff and their spouses. There are actually some other food served but as usual, busy with the 3 stooges that I didn't get to take the photos before it dissappears.

Kari Ayam


Nasi Beriyani

Sate Ayam
Sayur Lodeh
Nasi Impit & Kuah Kacang

Karipap, Kueh Lapis, Chocolate cake & Buah Dragon Fruit


Carrot cake made by yours truly
