Haven’t been posting in a while. What better way to restart my posting habit than to kick off on this 1st day of the month of Ramadhan.

I thought it’d be interesting to know some essentials of ramadhan, the history, the tradition… I googled ramadhan and got this on Wikipedia:

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, sexual conduct, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured; from dawn until sunset. Fasting is meant to teach the Muslim patience, modesty and spirituality. Ramadan is a time to fast for the sake of Allah, and to offer more prayer than usual. During Ramadan, Muslims ask forgiveness for past sins, pray for guidance and help in refraining from everyday evils, and try to purify themselves through self-restraint and good deeds. As compared to solar calendar, the dates of Ramadan vary, moving forward about ten days each year. Ramadhan was the month in which the first verses of the Qur’an were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.

Interesting, but enough about that… Its now 5 o’ clock. Have about 2+ hours more to go until the first buka puasa of this year. Last year my housemates and myself were a bit more rajin… we cooked. I still remember yusri trying to fry eggs using the rice cooker (we ended up eating outside). hahahaha. This time, yusri isn’t here, he’s somewhere in Batu Pahat marketing his new MLM product (maybe I’ll tell more about it to u people in my next post), so that just leaves me with the Soulja Boy. And guess wut, as much as I love our pasar Ramadhan, i think i’ll break my first fasting day of this year in Kentucky’s. Nothing better than having some finger licking good ‘break-food’.
