Ramadhan has always made me nostalgic of all the things happening around me when I was a child.
The most vivid memory is always of the neighbours swapping kuih and juadah berbuka with us just before Iftar time.
It was always the kids jobs to go around to the neighbours with a plate of food.
But we didn’t do it everyday lah. I guess setakat goreng cekodok takkan itupun nak bagi orang, hehehe.
But for the life of me, I can’t remember what kind of kuihs we normally swap around…
I guess with old age comes memory loss eh, heeeee…..
Anyway, tahun ni tetiba I terfikir nak ajak the Sunday School mak2 to do just that.
To swap our kuih muih on Sunday.
So, when I let them know about the plan, semua setuju and excited nak join which always makes it more fun bila semua excited sama!
Semalam was our first ‘swap meet’ at the masjid.
Everyone brought along bags with containers filled with food macam nak berjual kat pasar ramadhan aje, hahaha.
So what was my kuih contribution?
Custard fruit tarts
I’ve been wanting to make these tarts for ages but sentiasa malas and fikir sape aje yang nak makan.
So, when opportunity comes knocking to make 1 batch of it, terus lah I buat.
And what do I get in return for making 1 type of kuih?
So many yummy kuih muih!
Kuih ketayap, kuih lapis, kuih lopes, cara berlauk, kuih bakar pandan and pulut panggang.
The Other Half said he was so impressed with the kuih muih spread and he said every single kuih tasted so sedap.
Memang sedap betul we all berbuka semalam, hehehe.
Dia kata tak payah beli kuih at the bazaar ramadhan kat masjid tu lagi lah sebab tak sesedap kuih yang Mak2 buat, hahaha.
And all the Mak2 dah siap buat list what to bring next Sunday .
