Kenduri Here and There....

"kenduri' is a malay term, literally translated as a ceremony, with aplenty and abundance food being served. In Malaysia, there many ceremonies, which normally; during and after will be served with food and foods. My normal lazy sunday, changed today; with early morning drive to Putrajaya; the adminstrative capital, to attend a convocation. Breakfast, lunch and tea-break was OK for my standards, but I don't have choice anyway.
Congratulations and Selamat Pengantin Baru My Friend

Then I hurriedly rushed back to KL as my aim was to be at my best friend's wedding, I know I am late already. It was a worthwile journey. The food was superb; Nasi Briani, Dalca, Rendang Daging, ayam masak merah, expensive acar buah, pulut is served as well, tempe, bubur kacang and tapai pulut. The beverage was rather unique, a twist of Air Sirap with ice-cream soda..... and fresh fruit cutting. I really enjoyed myself; self-service the food twice!!!! (No dinner afterwards :) The atmosphere was greater and better than the 'many protocol' and rather a boring ceremony that I had attended earlier.

To my best friend: Hadi & Wife; Selamat Pengantin Baru, semoga bahagia ke akhir hayat, Amin

And the food is aplenty, marvellous and well anticipated especially if you are joining a Chef's wedding ceremony; and I couldn't help but 2 servings for myself :)

left to right: the Nasi Briani, The dishes: buffet style and The Tapai Pulut (or fermented glutinous rice; taste sweet and best served chilled A la-mode / with ice cream)

Clockwise: The main table for the Raja Sehari, the fruits carving display and the thrilling kenduri atmosphere and; those in orange t-shirt are the "bentara" or the waiter- the key person in any traditional kenduri; relaxing as the kenduri 's is almost over as we arrived
