Ramadan



Try to go to Ctown or Safeway anytime after 2 - before 3.30 and I bet you wouldn't find a place to park your car...

Ramadan makes people crazy, thinking and dreaming of food.. what to eat for iftoor... what to eat after iftoor..
I reached the point where a long fasting day would make me eat everything at the same time... atayef with rice and fatoush and soup... all mixed with chocolate, dates, pepsi and juice..

anything that comes to my mind during the day... and this all happens at the same time... not waiting for my stomach to digest.. Not giving myself a chance to breath...

The good thing is that I believe fasting is getting easier as you get used to it... you get used to the fact that you have to wait till 6.30! First day was the hardest especially for people who are used to a cup of nescafe first thing in the morning- to start a day and to wake up... hopefully it'll get much easier when we get closer to the end of the month ...

    hello! it's bizarre, you say iftoor exactly as in my country! I think that my pal nesquick and tiger frostie's really start to miss me, and to find myself in front of this photo with the twix is hardest of the suplices!fortunately, the iftoor is in exactly 15 minutes for me;) but to be honest, I make it much more for the fun that by conviction! salam! et sahha chribtek!

    i still starve everyday waiting for iftar, i didnt get used to it yet....

    and the sheikh that says el-athan on TV this year is really slow he takes almost a whole 15 seconds just to say "Allah"

    did anyone else noticed?

    this year, Ramadan is the easiest one ever...I think that was because since a month ago, I didnt have lunch at the afternoon time, I got too busy in the last month and had my main course just around Maghrib time...

    Now I thank whatever reasons that held me busy at that time :D

    Lucky you Hani, but for someone who's used to have lunch at 13:00 ... it makes a lot of difference :S
