Malaysia: Attending a Kenduri

Eating Asia has pictures from a Kenduri – a traditional Malay ceremony or feast. The blogger describes the preparation of the food. “All kenduri involve protocol – there are must-do's and must-don'ts; dress should be appropriate, and ritual respected. But this is Malaysia, a country where food is never an afterthought. So, as the betrothed-to-be prepared herself for the afternoon's events, assorted relatives and neighbors cooked up an amazing meal for the guests.”
