Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri (Happy Aidilfitri New Year)

Happy Aidilfitri New Year to all Muslims who celebrate it today after having fasted for a month in the month of Ramadan.

In Malaysia open houses are held by political leaders to allow people of other races to celebrate the Muslim new year with Muslims who are mostly Malays. Usually a variety of food will be served to the guests. These include ketumpat (glutinous dumpling), rendang (chicken meat or beef cooked in curry with spices thrown in plus ‘santan’ or coconut milk). In some places nasi minyak, nasi daging and lemang are also served besides the main dish – rendang.
