Ministers & Cabinet's Raya Open House

Venue: Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur
When: 12:30pm - 4:30pm

Went to the gah-var-man's open house on yesterday (1st day of Raya). Being a lil' anti-govt these days, i proudly admit that I went there purposely for food, and not to support them.
I have been absent frm such occasion for merely 2 years, coz back then i was working on both Raya days. I decided to make a comeback this year as to feel the 'merriment' and to savour local delicacies, especially my favorite lemang and rendang.
Despite having those local media exaggerating on how well preparation has been done, I still feel not much different compared to the other years. Well, the figures are shown in local papers. Here are the statistics:

50,000 kgs of food stuffs
14 main dishes
24 local kuihs
750 staffs
150 security personel
45 chefs
5 halls
200,000 expected turnout visitors
10,000 visitors at any particular time
After having some fried noodles, fried meehoon, and 2 pieces of chicken, i felt full and can't digest any further. Thus, i 'illegally' take away aka 'ta pau' those additional food and sneaked out without anyone's notice...
I brought home these...
Currypuff, from gah-var-ment, not ol' Chang Kee
Spring roll, 'crispy outside, succulent inside'
Can anyone tell me what is this called? Nice flower pattern and crispy.
Ok, that's all of food pictures. I'm still very much in raya mood and i guess many of us do...
till then,
Selamat Hari Raya!
