Hari Raya is a day of celebration for Muslims all over the world after completing a month of religious fasting, also known as the Ramadan month.
During Ramadan, night bazaars or "Pasar Malam" in the Malay language pop up all over Kuala Lumpur (KL). For local and visitors alike, it is festive period that dishes up paddles and paddles of traditional Malaysian delicacies such as ketupat nasi, ketupat palas, rendang, rempeyek kacang, kuih bahulu and serunding.
At one such Pasar Malam, I chanced upon a buffet of traditional Malaysia pastries and deserts, commonly known as "Kuih" by locals, which are abundant during the Hari Raya festive period. I had to grab my share quickly because they sell out really fast. And I'm talking 8pm and half the "Kuihs" are already gone.
