Hari Raya open house

On the second day of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, I attended the open house hosted by Second Finance Minister YB Dato’ Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah and his family. The Open House concept is almost like a tradition that can only be found in Malaysia – my foreign friends continue to marvel at how anyone could simply walk in to mingle with ministers and grab some food for free.

food galore

If you have not been to an Open House before, the crowd might be overwhelming. The long queues could be scary – not only for free food, but to greet the hosts! Haha!

And even though parking is always a problem at such functions, I still made my way there, purposely to bring the atmosphere to you! 🙂 I hope you enjoy looking through my photos!
