Syawal is here!

After a month of Ramadhan .. Syawal is here!

My hubby and I spent the nite before cleaning up the house .. we vacuumed, mopped, lay out our carpet, put two small cushions on our sofa, put the Hari Raya goodies in little containers for guests to savour .. hehehe .. and much much more ..

This is a pic of my living room .. very simple .. taken the very nite after we have cleaned the house.

Oh ya .. this is a pic of my two angels in their Hari Raya garb taken at our balcony just before we left for my mum's place yesterday.

OK .. I would like to wish all fellow Muslims - Happy Hari Raya, Minal Aidin Walfaizin!

Fold in raisins and crushed cornflakes.
Spoon teaspoonfuls of soft dough onto a tray.
Bake in a preheated oven at 170 c for about 20 - 25 minutes.
