Yesterday was the first day of Syawal in the Muslims calendar. It's Hari Raya and I was following my wife to visit some of her colleagues.
Most Muslims in Sibu live around Jalan Kampung Datuk. The place was sure happening with many cars and people along the road, creating traffic jam and bottle neck. People from all races can be found here visiting their Muslims friends houses
Some of the houses are quite hidden from the main road and one need to negotiate the wooden planks to reach the destination. Those wearing high heels might experience some problem
There were many food been served to us. One of them is the famous Sarawak Kek Lapis (Layer Cake)
Rendang masak hitam were served in almost all the houses we visited. It is beef cooked in spices in the traditional malay style.
Rendang and curry are best eaten with rice, ketupat (rice dumpling wrapped in coconut leaves) or bread. All the food taste really nice and I had my stomach full after just visited 3 houses.
