Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all my Muslim friends, readers, and everyone who is celebrating this occasion, maaf zahir batin.
The very traditional Malaysian thing to do during the festive season is of course, hosting or attending open houses, and the mother of all open houses in the country is none other than the PM Najib Razak’s rumah terbuka at Seri Perdana, Putra Jaya.
the Milo truck always serves the best ever milo!
After spending half an hour getting lost around Putrajaya, we finally reached Seri Perdana at Precint 10. Parked the car and walked across the street with hundreds of people, and saw the MILO TRUCK!
I don’t know if it’s a conspiracy or something, but the Milo truck always serve the absolute best milo ever! We took a couple cups and it felt like I was in primary school all over again.
Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Seri Perdana was well packed
As it turns out, the guest’s hall was actually a converted car park covered with tents and plenty of plastic chairs. Luckily it was drizzling and it was still rather cooling. We eventually made our ways to the buffet line and found Kenny, Jacklyn, and Lainey among thousands of other free loaders.
There were also a stage with performers singing Malay, Chinese, as well as Indian songs. The sound system were quite loud, and most people pretty much stays closer to the food than the stage.
the satey was awesome! cheesie, kenny, lainey, jacklyn, KY
The food at PM’s open house was actually quite good. The rendang, nasi impit, and taufu were pretty delicious, but the best item of the day was definitely the beef satey. As the stall offering satey was packed to the brim, cheesie only managed to get 3 sticks of satey and I had a total of one.
Kenny than later got a huge plate of chicken satey as the dude manning that stall happened to be one of his readers. The chicken satey was good, but the beef was a lot more awesome.
We had wanted to visit the PM in the royal hall and perhaps make use of the royal toilet. But alas, we tried when it was just over 3pm, PM wanted to get his rest or start doing something really important, so we went off instead.
Thank you @NajibRazak!
Cool things you can do with a blackberry
In the next few posts, I will attempt to showcase 5 cool things the Blackberry from Xpax can do. Here is #5.
show a Canadian flag on cheeserland.com
Cheesie’s blog has this nifty little flag thingy whenever anyone leaves a comment, and just last night I placed a comment and interestingly, a Canadian flag came up instead of the usual Malaysian flag like most everyone else.
Cool ya? You can preregister yourself for the new Blackberry Curve 8520 from Xpax here!
