12 Ramadhan 1432H - The buffets

Alhamdulillah we are know in the second phase of Ramadhan. I'm so thankful to Allah for giving me the opportunity to live and spend another Ramadhan at home. Fufufuuuu bahagianya bangun sahur mak kejut, buka tak pening nak kena paksa diri masak sendiri lepas seharian penat kat kelas.

So far within the past 12 days I've been dining out twice, once yesterday and once last Tuesday. Actually, I feel quite guilty if I were to dine out because that means Mak will be all alone at home break-fasting by herself. I know she's been doing it for quite a while these past few years tapi since saya kat rumah ni apelah salahnye temankan ye dok?

Another cons of dining out for iftar would be.....the amount of food that will be taken in. Kalau kat rumah usually I can control what I eat tapi kalau buka kat luar tu tak ke asyik nak makan buffet je. Hari Selasa haritu pergi Bistro Qaseh in Seksyen 13, Shah Alam. RM22 per pax, the buffet spread was quite good. Limited to Malay dishes only la but still the food was quite tasty. Kuih muih, rojak buah, tahu sumbat, asam pedas daging, ikan keli, tenggiri masak lemak, sup cendawan and a lot more dishes. Praying area was provided in another shop a few blocks from the restaurant. Not that comfortable but gotta praise for their effort to provide one la kan?

As for yesterday I had another buffet gala at Shogun One Utama. For RM44++ per pax, I think it is worth it, looking at the choice of food. Ada sushi, sashimi, tempura, fried rices, teppanyaki, a few cooked dishes like lamb curry, sweet and sour fish, dim sum and many many more. Makan lah kau sampai mati. It was situated on the same level with the surau so it was quite convenient as I could take a break to pray first. Lepastu sambung makan sampai berbaloi 40hengget. heh..

What and where's next? Ade ke? Takde ke? Heheheh, only time will tell!

Potluck : The tradition continues...

Every year, my mom's siblings, will make an effort to gather around and have a potluck-style break fast. My mom has 7 brothers and 5 sisters, so that make them altogether 13..Yesterday, the tradition continues :)

Mak Pah was the first to arrive because mom asked for her help to make kerabu. Around 430pm MakPah's family was already at my home. As usual, Mak Pah transformed into her kitchen attire and started to make her wonders. I, on the other hand took Mira, my cousin to the bazaar Ramadhan at Alam Megah because I suddenly wanted a kuih tepung pelita. That was my first time to Bazaar because I've been restraining myself from going....takut tergoda iman :P

Lepastu around 630pm more and more people start to come. We spread the table cloth on the floor and divided the dishes to 3 portions.

The food : Mi goreng, Sambal udang petai , Daging salai masak lemak  Sayur goreng , Ayam masak kicap 

Soon after the Azan, the atmosphere turned into silence, mainly because everyone was busy concentrating on the delicious food in front of them.

The list of the food involved yesterday :

  • Solok ikan - by Cikpi and CikImah. My personal favourite!
  • Ikan masak sweet and sour - by Cikkam and Cikwa
  • Ikan bakar - by Uncle Halimi and Aunty Wan
  • Ayam masak kicap - by MakPah and Uncle Mazlan
  • Mi goreng - by Mak and CikKam/Cikwa
  • Sambal udang petai - by MakLimah and Uncle Azhar
  • Daging salai masak lemak - by Maktip and Uncle Kamal
  • Sayur goreng - by Maksemah and Uncle Dib
  • Kerabu daun selom - by Makpah and Mak
  • Apam polkadot - by Kakdiah
  • Murtabak and tepung pelita - by bazar ramadhan Alam Megah :P
  • Pengat pisang - by Makpah
Gitu..anak-cucu Haji Haron ni memang bab makan memang juara :P hahaha...

Dividing the food

All set to be eaten

Start to take places

Moment of silence :P
May the tradition continues, as long as possible. Amiin.

6 Ramadhan 1432H

Sedar tak sedar, we are onto the 6th days of the fasting month already. Time flies innit. That means I've less than a month to enjoy home :(

How's Ramadhan this year? Definitely better than last year. Last year I only get to spend a day at Malaysia. The rest I was back in Cork. either studying or trying to adjust to the new environment in 4th year. Ramadhan during summer is quite a battle because we started fasting from 4ish until around 9ish. Fuuhh...

Ok this is just an update...for the sake of updating. Nothing much to be told. Nothing much happened. Oh my scholar is delayed until end of August because I sent my results to the wrong email. I'm lucky I still have some leftover from last 3 month's allowance to pay up my rent and bills...

Kerisauan. Of worries.

Tibe-tibe harini macam risau. Like worried.

Nak masuk final year dah.

Adakah bersedia.

Double the workloads, quadruple the pressure.

Ya Allah, please ease my way, please make everything runs smoothly for me.

Sounds straight from the twilight
Has me up all night I can’t
Fall asleep coz I keep thinking of you
And I saw a shadow, outside my window
And it’s you!

All my sorrows flew away,
Hush keep quiet hear me say
I don’t ever want you to go
Please stay

With the moonlight dancing free
And there’s no one but you and me
There’s no reason to go astray
Please stay

Making up a story
It’s the way you’re looking at me
If you think that this is funny
It’s just you

Try and think about it
If your heart is closed don’t lock it
Keep your keys back in your pocket, think this through
