A proud clan with its own distinctive language and traditional recipes, more than 600 Raos (Rawa) had gathered at the local hotel in Ampang for their annual dinner.

The dinner menu last night consisted of regular Rao recipes such as gulai lemak ayam (chicken in tumeric curry), rendang Padang among others.

My own Rao clan mostly resided in areas such as Raub, Dong, Lipis in the state of Pahang. Our dialect is a bit different that those Raos who reside in Perak for instance.
