The spirit of Hari Raya Aidilfitri dawns upon the Muslim nation and many have travelled back to their hometown to celebrate with their loved ones. Many choose to spend this festive day with delicious food and snacks. While kuih raya is a must for the season, how much is too much kuih raya?
Not seven but 70 glass containers filled with various types of Raya cakes were served to the guests who came for Hari Raya open house. That's the uniqueness featured in the recent open house visited by a TikTok user known as ijansritiram during Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Based on the video shown, all 70 glass containers containing kuih raya are served on a carpet lined with cloth, where the guests are seated cross-legged.
"From the time I was little until I started having grey hair, I never missed the chance to come over here for Raya. There are a lot of cakes and kuihs to greet the guests who come over," said the man.
This was also acknowledged by a TikTok user known as Princess who left a comment on the video and said that the host once served 150 glass containers filled with Raya cakes.
"Just celebrated Raya at this house yesterday. There used to be up to 150 containers, now there are only 70 containers left because many of them are chipped. Because of that, the number of containers have reduced," he said.
"At my house, even six containers of cookies are hard to finish. Chips, crackers, snacks are so much more! Can’t imagine 70 containers!" said Aduk@_T!r@n@25.
With 70 options of kuih raya to choose from, we surely would be excited to be invited to such an open house!
