hye everyone.
how's everyone holding up in this Ramadhan?
i'm sure everyone is alright though it's freaking hot here in Malaysia nowadays.
you know what? 
truthfully, i didn't even feel like it is a Ramadhan when i was working.
people were eating freely as the wish.
i mean, i can understand if my patients' did not 'fast'. most of them are preggies and in labor (i'm in OnG department now). 
even the hospital did not prepare sahur food (we get free foods during sahur when i was in Indonesia)
and most of the lunches that they prepared for us were thrown in the dustbin.
what a waste!

i really miss the Ramadhan in Indonesia.
there will be banners everywhere (and Raya wishes as well, even though Ramadhan had just started)
Most of the restaurant's windows are covered with curtains or white clothes, so that you can't see the people eating inside.
one of example where a food court is covered with a red curtain.

in Malaysia, people just ate openly even if it's a Ramadhan month. 
no veil nor curtains *sigh*
i think those five years fasting in Indonesia had made me forgot all about the Ramadhan month in Malaysia. 
except for the bazar Ramadhan and the tarawikh, nothing else makes me feel like this is a Ramadhan month.
or maybe it is just me who feels that way.  

p.s. had a delicious Nasi Lemak kukus yesterday! 
this make up for the 'tasteless' nasi kerabu that i bought before this.
i wonder why most of the foods at the Bazar doesn't taste as good as they seems? 
maybe i should start to learn how to cook.

When we child, we observed Ramadhan because our parents ask we 2 fast and we willingly do so because we like to follow the elders.

When in school everyone just keep quiet because everyone wanted 2 show that they are observing fast.

At collage everyone seems to be towards understanding why they should fast... some for the sake of health..diet...etc..

when getting older, we should observed Ramadhan as pious muslim. Ramadhan is a month of BARAKAH, FORGINENESS OF SINS and THE DETOUR FROM HELL.

.... remember FASTING is one of the 5 pillars of ISLAM... other than Syahadah, Solat, Paying ZAKAT and Hajj.

Remind MYSELF and others 2 observed FASTING with sincere FAITH AND OBEDIENT 2 ALLAH...Lets look back 2 our NIAT and adjust accordingly...
