Before I start, I'd like to warn you that this entry is full of pictures...hehehe
After isya' on the 15th, we started our rewang. We had so many things to do. The men had to cut the chickens (some for lunch the next day and some for kuah soto for jamuan). The ladies had to peel 20kg of potatoes (some for pegedil) chopped, sliced or blend chillies, onions, garlic and ginger.
Everyone had their own job to do. Kak Adik with the help of a few others prepared the condiments for gear-box soup to be eaten on that night. I already asked Kak Maria to buy the bread to be eaten with the soup. We had to use the only house available in Block A (A-G-8), which was full of gym equipment...sigh. Luckily the ladies were not too picky and they worked hard.
Though they still had time to tell each other about ghost stories...hehehe. I got to know that at the height of the 'story', they even stopped the blending machines because they wanted to 'concentrate'?!! ...sigh. I already told them not to listen but being humans I suppose, the curiosity got to them...and then everybody got scared! I didn't listen because I was busy in and out of the room...supervising...hehehe.
Cerita, jangan tak cerita...hehehe
Ayu aje Kak Anum and Nor...
This is the ginger gang...hehehe
Sukanya Kak Rohana...
Afraid but curious, huh?!!
My kids yang terbiar...sigh...
The men were busy cutting the chicken and also beef for rendang the next day. We were happy to see that most of the men came down and helped. The OGP guys were cooking the nasi impit in their house upstairs. When the ladies struggled with slicing the onions for bawang goreng, I distributed some onions to the guys also...hehehe.
Hamdan with a gunny sack of onions...
Hj Ayob, Kak Adik and Kak Jas...preparing the soup
I had to thank everyone who sincerely did all the jobs that needed to be done. Bravo everyone! I'm proud to be one of you and as a community, we did a hell of a job! Because we had the cooperation of everyone, the tasks were done beautifully.
The only problem we had was the stove. We had 3 stoves but all had problems... api kecik sangat, in some cases, we had to combine two stoves to make sure that the food would be cooked faster. We also rebus ketupat on that night. The ketupat leaves were brought by Ipin and Kak Anum made it into ketupat. That also took ages to cook...hehehe, but the end result was delicious!
Authentic ketupat, beb!
Busy preparing the condiments for soup...
Kerisik and rempah soto from Johor...
The garlic gang...hehehe
Sembang pasal apa, huh?!!
Kak Maria and Ina Wahab...
Then it was time to enjoy the gear-box soup. Actually in Sudan, even though I asked for bones, we got a 'meaty' meat instead. They seemed to enjoy the soup though...hehehe. They were a bit surprised when I told them that I bought 20kg for the sole for purpose of the soup. Hehehe, terperanjat ko...hehehe. Well, if I buy less, it wouldn't be enough. So, I'd rather we had ample food for everyone.
Ceduk, jangan tak ceduk...hehehe
One whole pot of soup...hehehe
Dah buat keje, baru boleh makan...muahahaha!
Single-status and memang single pun ada...hehehe
Angkat, jangan tak angkat...
