Raya haji..bbq@my parents house

We went back to my parent's house during Aidil Adha this year.. my eldest brother (Along), my sister and my 3rd brother with their families came back too. It is nice to have sort of family gathering once a while. These 3 pics below are the scenery at the back of my parent's house...paddy field! or known as ' bendang' here at my place.
Close up of 'pokok padi'..
Aiman with his cousins
My sister in law who has a great passion on fishing! and her daughter too...(pssst:Kak Yam if you read this..Yes,I've blog about it! and ppl around the globe can see you fishing!..if they come across my blog lah.. hehehhee)
Cousins...I actually have 14 nephews and nieces at the moment and 11 of them were there at my parent's hse during last raya..
Thinking of having a lot of beef during raya haji..my brother bought a lot of fishes, prawns and squids and Kak Yam (my sister in law) and me planned a bbq night. She went out to buy those essential things like the charcoal grill, chicken franks, the 'satay sticks' and things to make the gravy. Then by 6pm the grilling started...

See..aiman is trying to swallow a hot grilled chicken franks! and another one is in his right hand! and finally the chicken franks finished before the actual eating session started..LOL

And the girls preparing it..dah besar-besar anak sedara Acu ni..hehehehe

After about an hour..tadaaaa...everything is ready to be eaten..


Makan time!..Tok is busy rationing the food...hehehee takut tak cukup :P
The kids had theirs' first..
The girls eat inside the house..



Makan-makan ended at about 9pm..and by 10pm everybody was very tired and slept early that night.

Takde pacat or lintah ke Nat. Itu yg paling i tak sanggup tu. Tengok dari jauh ajelah. lol.

Bestnya ber bbq with everybody. I pun actually prefer our style of bbq rather than american. Ours have lots more varieties fr beef to lamb to chicken to seafood. Semua ada!
