Raya Open House 2008

our open house yesterday was a huge success..

we decided to do a joint raya open house more or less 2 weeks ago..initiated by zie & me
iniatially the idea was to have a breakfast-to-lunch-to-tea time-event
later on kak ram of d'chef joined us, followed by fiza, then ijam, then tifah..last but not least kak esah [we are immediate neighbours :)]
the original plan altered... zie will start with the breakfast..then a short break n the jamuan will restart a 4pm til very very late in the night..[if u r familiar amanputra's ritual..1-2am event is nuthing lahhh..hehehe
zie, kak ram, fiza, tifah n me will do 2 dishes each, bibik kak esah will do the bakso, ijam will incharge of the pinggan mangkuk..i settled the tents n kerusi meja n settings [tong tong sorang sket lerr]
1 rented tent became 2 now..the buffet spread is even bigger..
its the day!!
