3 Days, 3 Different Place to Break Fast
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.
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:
- Fried mee
- Variety of cakes (kuih-muih)
- Orange cordial
- Hot tea
- Green Bandung drink
As usual after performing Magrib prayer we went to perform Isya’ and Terawih.
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:
- Various assorted cakes (Kuih-muih lah)
- White rice
- Daging Gulai Kawah
- Chicken rice (for the kids)
- Ayam percik
- Curry fish
- Fried chicken
- 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… 😉
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… 😉
