It was an exhaustive but rewarding weekend. Last Friday, we break fast (iftar), as usual at home. Normally, my wife will cook something for all of us. If you asked me the menu that evening, I have forgotten…. haha… and I just asked my wife and she also have forgotten about the menu she cooked.

Saturday Story

Then on Saturday morning, we headed to Kuantan, my wife’s hometown to have iftar there for the first time this fasting month. We requested my mother in law to cook laksa and fried mee. Laksa is for us while the fried mee is for the kids. They are not ready to eat laksa yet. We arrived in Kuantan at about 4.30 pm and visited a Ramadhan bazaar at Taman Tas. We bought a handful of colourful and tasty food for the iftar. We arrived at my in laws at 5pm and I rested myself.

The menu that day (Saturday) at Kuantan:

  1. Laksa
  2. Fried mee
  3. Martabak
  4. Variety of cakes (kuih-muih)
  5. Orange cordial
  6. Hot tea
  7. Green Bandung drink
  8. Kurma

As usual after performing Magrib prayer we went to perform Isya’ and Terawih.

Sunday Story

The following day, we returned back to Johor Bahru and hope to make it to have iftar at my parents place. We managed to reach my folks home in Taman Gembira at 5.30 pm, that is after we did a little bit food shopping in Bazar Ramadhan in Kampung Melayu Majidee.

Honestly, I don’t like the experience buying food there. It was pack, crowded and difficult to walk. Another obvious reason I hated going to this kind of Bazar Ramadhan is because there are a lot of women who could not care less about their own attire. I avoided to look but most of the times, it was accidental view. There are women who wear very tight and fit dress. There are also some who wear see through dress which reveal their body underneath!!! What the hell is this? Are they fasting? Or simply showing off their flesh.

Well, that’s one of the most significant reason I hated to go to most of the Bazar Ramadhan. However, the one in UTM is OK. Maybe because most of them who are there are UTM students and staffs, and all of them are decently dressed. The Bazar Ramadhan in UTM is also not crowded. Ops… enough of that… Need to stop that before I changed subject.

Back to my original story. We have iftar at my folks home on Sunday and the menu were:

  1. Martabak
  2. Otak-otak
  3. Various assorted cakes (Kuih-muih lah)
  4. White rice
  5. Daging Gulai Kawah
  6. Chicken rice (for the kids)
  7. Kurma
  8. Ayam percik
  9. Curry fish
  10. Fried chicken
  11. Hot tea

Why the hack the menu was more? Easy… My mother informed me that she has nothing to cook at home after my younger brother, Budeen left earlier the same day. So, I told her not to worry. We will buy the food at Bazar Ramadhan. Upon reaching home, I found out that my father also has bought food. It was basically a simple communication break down. That’s fine. The extra food was successfully carried forward for sahur!!! as usual… πŸ˜‰

Tuah’s new home

My mother happen to accidentally took care of a baby stray cat at her home. The cat, named Tuah, is not physically cute but she is a charming cat. The problem is my mother cannot take care of the cat because she is not very fit to take car of Tuah. Tuah will eat and do her business anywhere (shit)… Hence, my mother asked my favour to relocate Tuah to anywhere far away from her house.

Feeling pity of Tuah’s fate, I offered to place him behind my house. That will be a place, not too spacious but better then no where for an innocent teenage cat who don’t know what’s happening. Will continue about Tuah soon. It’s time to break fast… πŸ˜‰

    1. Green bandung? How does it taste? Same as the pink bandung?

    2. Yeah, it was frustrating to see women dressed up more revealing compared to out of Ramadhan season. As they say.. kurus pahala puasa kita. Hampes!

    3. Free pahala for you when taking care of that kucing Cyza.

    4. In my blog, I tried to translate the Malay dish name to English, but for some of them I really don’t know how it will be in English. Quite funny to see Ayam Percik to become Sprayed Chicken/Splashed Chicken right? Hahaha!

    1. Hah…you are right. Green Bandung taste like the pink Air Bandung. My mother in law made it from …errr… i don’t know… but it taste marvelous.

    2. Yep…kurus puasa…for us and for them…don’t know lah..

    3. Yep…but then, the cat is quite stupid. It throws away not on the sand or soil but on the cement. Now i understand my mother’s frustration. Now, my rear part of the house smell bad!!! I’ve asked my maid to clean the mess, smell and teach the cat a lesson.

    4. I think, just use the Malay terminology if we cannot identify a better english translation. Don’t you think so?

    hoho..green bandung? Tak pernah dengar lagi. kalau sirap bandung ke, oren bandung ke, laici bandung ke, ribena bandung ke..penah gak dengar..

  4. nuaeman says:

    Green bandung?? sudah macam air kathira dah..

  5. cyza says:

    Haha…maybe i should ask the recipe of Green Bandung since many people is curious about it. Haha…

  6. cyza says:

    Green Bandung is not like KAthira…Different lah bro… πŸ˜‰

  7. nuaeman says:

    I meant the color. If not like kathira maybe like honey dew.. hehe..

  8. cyza says:

    Oh…yes, the colour is almost similar to kathira…

    Have you check out the Fantasy Premier League position?!


  9. nuaeman says:

    FPL?? arghhh.. I drop to 14 placed.. and EPL also boring after man united draw with fulham

  10. cyza says:

    Yep…It was really frustrating when Manchester United only managed to draw with Fulham. However, this time, I’m not disappointed because my team has jumped to 7th placed. hehe…. So, at least the fantasy premier league can be a replacement for the excitement that we could not have control on our favourite premier league team.

    My 2 cent je bro… πŸ˜‰

    And guess what, I have balance of 0.4 million pound sterling to spend. Rooney not playing, luckily substituted with Richards from Manchester City…
