Ramadan 2013...

Tomorrow July 10, 2013 is the beginning of Ramadan for Malaysia. Ramadan is a spiritual journey and it is not about Festival or Makan [eating]. We are only rescheduling our eating habit which means we fast during the day and eat only from the time after the sunset [Iftar] and until just before the sunrise. To me we should be eating less during the whole month unless we are tempted by our eyes and nose to eat more than we should. Thus our budget would be less. Remember that we taste food first with our eyes, second with our nose and only then that we taste it with our mouth. If we conformed with the norms and value of Ramadan our journey for the whole month would be beautiful indeed. 

Have a nice day.

Selamat menjalani ibadah puasa di bulan Ramadhan, Pak Idrus. I'm staying alone during weekdays because we are a weekend family. Thus, I usually will cook and will not allow the temptation of the Bazaar Ramadhan to influence me. Weekends, more to entertain the men of my life.

Salaam Pak Idrus.

I suppose during the month you are running down your touring schedules to enjoy fasing at home plus tarawikh with neighbours.

Selamat berpuasa dan Hari Raya

Aziela, thanks for the visit and sharing your thoughts on the subject of this posting. Thanks too for the Puasa greeting and do hope that your too enjoy that journey and benefited from it.

Well I have never accepted the concept of a weekend family. Why must it happen? I always believe family should be together all the time and that the wife should always follow the husband wherever he works.

Anyway do have a nice day.

Al-Manar, Pokcik Hassan thanks for the visit.

Well there are time for every things and this month I would be just happy to be at home with the family enjoy the Iftar with the Kids and grand kids. The Buka Puasa is indeed a joyous event and I love it.

Would start the travelling from August onward.

Have a nice day.
