Ramadhan Al-Mubarak

Its that time of the year again. The time when outdoor activities are (sometimes) slowed down. The time you had to wake up before Subuh for sahur, and go shopping for delicious food for sungkai (or berbuka). The time when you just can't find these certain delicacies other than this time. The time when you can see mosques are merrier than in usual days. Its the month of Ramadhan. The fasting month :)

I could've rant for very long if I were to recall the funny (& dreaded) moments during this month. But I'm not intending to write long tonight. Here's some stories to share:

1. A common practice in a Muslim family, children are trained to fast since young. I was no exception. Tapi, budak2 kot. I was so thirsty I gulped the pipe water while showering! shhh~~ :p

2. We made our own ABC once. How we had our ice shaved? It was crushed instead. Put the ice in a clean cloth, wrap it, & hit hard with the lesung batu until its in tiny bits! sedih kan? haha but the best thing is, you get to choose your ingredients. & put just how much you like! XD

3. I hated waking up for sahur kecik2 dulu. But I motivated myself to wake up by thinking "nanti pagi da tak boleh makan. rugi rugi!"

4. Back in my high school days, in SMESH, fasting was fun. During the recess time, segerombolan gadis yang 'ditembak Jepun' would go trotting back the hostel & makan Maggie Mee! biasa la kan budak asrama hehe. & trips to Bazaar Ramadhan was utmost looked forward by all! My non-muslim friends joined fasting (especially Deborah, babe I remember you especially!) dengan alasan to diet, but ended up crashing the diet by eating a little TOO much when sungkai. LOL!

In UTP..
5. My girls & I once walked all the way from V2 to the front gate, just to sahur with Nasi Lemak Kukus! That was super far ockay~ imagine walking more than 2km i guess? in the chilly air of 3 4am. Maklum la time tu takde kereta lagi. But it payed off ockay! best gile! A moment I'll never forget! The juniors yang tak pernah tahu Nasi Lemak Kukus tu asalnya dari luar UTP, please appreciate yang kat V5 Cafe sekarang tu ye! :p

6. I used to stay up until sahur time. I was all night up most of the night. Chatting, usually. & go to sleep only after Subuh prayer. Sometimes for just 1 hour as I got class at 8am. But I have free periods in the evening, so I slept most of the evening :p

7. I'm an easy riser. I wake up easily. So I was the one usually preparing the sahur meal for my dear2 friends. Buat teh. bubur. bakar roti. etc. pastu ketuk2 bilik sorang2 kejutkan ajak makan. Sangat Mama time tu :) I missed these times.. oh & I remembered 1 morning, I ketuk2 bilik Oyen Atex ke Saa eh? tapi takde response lama, sampai I tertidur balik kat koridor tu depan bilik dorang, tertiarap kat lantai haha

8. I'm the most tamak person you can see when shopping at the Ramadhan Bazaar. Tengok kalau g Pasar Malam kat Seri Iskandar tu pun boleh tau :p I like to buy macam2, but in the end I jamah segigit dua je, the rest bagi kawan2 ihiks~

9. I had a shock mula2, when I got to know my Semenanjung friends ni eat rice for sahur. In my family, we're used to very light sahur - milk & cereal, bread, oats (yuck), porridge, fried beehoon would be considered heavy. But nasik in the early morning? Memang culture shock. But I adapted :) But I'm seriously fine with 2 biji kurma & Milo as sahur. Did that alot last year sebab takde housemate best :(

10. My roomate of 3.5 years, Syaima', uses this SUPER ANNOYING ringtone as her alarm. Ohh the annoyance is indescribable! Habis ingat boleh bangun la tu. If you see Syaima', do please ask her to play the tone in her Samsung handphone. Set to the highest volume somemore. But she almost NEVER woke up! Paling kelakar was this 1 day when I totally gave up waking her for sahur - pastu pagi marah2 I kate I tak kejutkn haha - Some of us tengah sahur kat bilik Diba (next to me & Syai's room). The alarm sounded off so loud the whole house could actually hear it (sebab pintu terbukak). But. She never woke up. LOL! thnks for reminding me on this one, babe X)

And.. I should stop. Hehe.

Wishing all my Muslim friends Selamat Berpuasa & Menyambut Ramadhan al-Mubarak~ :)

& to the non-Muslims, enjoy the Ramadhan Bazaar delicacies! John, I know u're enthusiastic about this X)
