Today is the first day of fasting month for muslim. I never fast according to muslim rules before. As much as I know, I only know that they have 'Sahur' at early morning and open fast at late evening. Between Sahur and late evening, those who fast can't eat and drink. During sahur, they would eat sufficiently to endure fasting period. Open fasting time is the best, because we can eat as much as possible. Yes including me.
My 1st open fast during my 1st year in uni, my friend brought me around the open fast market, educating me with all Malay cakes and food. As a newbie to Peninsular Malaysia, I was lucky to have a muslim friend who introduced many Malay cakes to me. As 'sakai' as I can be, I was amazed by the blue rice, BBQ chicken with funny name, the hot food, if I was alone, I won't buy any of those food. They just look bad for my stomach. Since I ate kuih lilin, I kept waiting for fasting month. Hard to get a good kuih lilin in Miri.
|My favourite is kuih lilin (candle 'cake').|
Fasting month is kind of good to me today. As early as 4.30am, who would be awake to entertain my insomia. I get to have a nice chat with my friend just because she have to wake up for Sahur. Lucky me.
Fasting month indicating Eid is approaching!!! Too bad no green angpow for me.
Happy fasting! You are welcome to DHL kuih lilin to me.
