Fasting Month

THIS MONTH IS a FASTING MONTH for the Muslims. I really salute to them for having the endurance not to eat and drink for the whole day. Their first meal will be before 5am in the morning and their 2nd meal will be at around 7.30pm in the evening. In other words, during the day, they are not supposed to drink nor eat, but of course, with the exception of small children or the sick people or ladies who are having menstrual cycle.

Anyway, I like the fasting month....not that I fast, I don't think I can endure being hungry or thirsty....haha.. I like this time of the month because there will be lots of sweet delicacies in the canteen and everywhere in town or in residential area...Besides that, there are also a lot of cooked dishes to choose from because during this fasting period, most families will just buy back food to save time from cooking.

Secondly, during the fasting month, our dismissal time to go off from office will be half an hour early than the usual. But of course, our lunch hour will be reduced to half hour instead of one. Well, I don't mind as long as I can go home early and do my house chores..... (and to blog, of course :)

  4. My name is Tsai Chang Yee, Staying at Sibu, Sarawak. Guess my posts seem to confuse you as I always here and there. Ha.... Ha..... i really fast for one day few years ago. Just to get the feel of fasting. Depending on one's activity, it is actually quite ok.

  6. The people who sells the food, if also fasting, then they are great!! During cooking, I guess no tasting so some food may be not enough salt, some may be too salty....hahahaha.
