Ramadhan has started. this is our 2nd ramadhan here, in the netherlands. i couldnt help myself but to think of all the food that we have back home and how the atmosphere is buying kuih at the pasar ramadhan, with the smoke from ayam percik, ayam golek, and the stalls that sells murtabak and roti john.... and not to mention rows and rows of drinks in those clear pastic fish tank containers with colours from white to black!
But anyway, now that we're here and gonna spend many many more ramadhans here, its time to get adjusted to the way it is far from nasi kerabu and bubur lambok. Maghrib is at 8pm and we broke our fast with some dates first, our multifruit drink and kuih vlaai!
Now that we're here, perhaps we can concentrate more on what ramadhan is all about i.e NOT food! its time to be thankful with what we have. grateful with all the blessings and enjoy the moment that we're all together.
Today, i walked to town, to find our kuih for berbuka puasa. not exactly kuih lopis but my favourite vlaai! rijstvlaai.
Last but not least, to those who are reading this, may you have a blessed Ramadhan where ever you are.
