Masak Lemak Cili Api Ikan Terubuk Asin


Sad news yesterday, my aunt, Allahyarharhamah Rohaya Yusof passed away peacefully at Hospital Pakar Sultanah Fatimah, Muar Johor, about 2 pm. We left for Muar around 2.40 pm. We reached Muar at 4.30pm due to heavy traffic somewhere before Muar town but alhamdulillah managed to pay our last respect to her before the burial. May her soul rest in eternal peace. Al Fatihah.
