Over 2000 Ipohites and Perakeans from all walks of life dropped by state executive councillor, Dato’ Nolee Ashilin’s Raya open house on Saturday, July 18, the second day of the Aidilfitri celebration. Her house at Tambun Heights was a hive of activity right from morning till late at night.
Visitors were treated to a wide selection of traditional Malay food such as lemang, ketupat, rendang and the crowd’s favourite, grilled lamb.
Despite the heavy traffic jam during the climax of the festivity, it did not stop the public from coming and greeting Nolee and her family in person.
“I like to express my sincere gratitude to all who came to our raya open house. It’s such a privilege to meet everyone today. Hopefully, I’ll get to organise it again next year,” said Nolee to Ipoh Echo.
