Eid Mubarak

I had Chinese, Malay and Indian as neighbors growing up. Even in school, my peers were of these 3 main races so naturally I’m well informed of their beliefs and practices.

Art was worried that I might get lonely once I join him here but little did he know his MiMi makes friends easily! dancing

You’d be surprised how many Malaysians there are here in Omaha and nearby towns! I think we Malaysians can assimilate pretty easily with any nationality but it’s nice to mingle with our own people once in awhile coz some words sound better in our slang or language! laugh A lot of times, I can’t find words to describe a situation/feeling to Art coz there’s just no words related to that in English help

Anyway, a Malaysian friend originally from Melaka/Malacca, threw a potluck get together recently to celebrate Hari Raya Eid al-Fitr over the weekend. There were like 50 ( mix and match of Malaysian, Caucasian, African and offsprings of Caucasian + Asian ) of us and you can imagine the level of noise when all of us trying to talk at the same time!! rolling on the floor laughing

I brought bubur cha-cha, a Malaysian dessert that consists of sweet potatoes, yam/taro, sago pearls, palm sugar, black-eyed peas and coconut milk. Of course there are many different varieties and ingredients but I made the one that is my grandma’s version.

This is my pretty hostess. She came to the US about 20 years ago to further her studies but along the way, fell in love with a fellow American college mate.

As you can clearly see from the picture below, Art was the only one not eating coz he just doesn’t like our food. All of us were like scrambling to get the food and he just sat there without budging doh I did however, brought some buns and pastry to him so that our friends won’t think he’s on a hunger strike! roll eyes mumbling
