I set my alarm clock at 3am for my syahur.
The alarm went off dutifully, but I turned it off and wanted another few winks. I thought to myself...its still early, after all I just need to make a cup of tea.
Then I lulled back to sleep...and when I woke up again...I thought..it was just half hour later, that I must wake up and make my tea...
Then suddenly I saw the window so bright...the sun was already up and it was 5.30am
There goes my syahur...! Somehow I feel that I am going to have many more mornings like it during this Ramadhan.
So the whole day I was feeling a bit hungry but managed to sustain it till adzan sounded and the canon was fired. Saved.
For iftar I had dates and figs, followed by a dinner of rice with some dhall curry, my stock of sambal tumis and chicken wings and cucumber.
A simple fare.
Now ... the other story...
I met a new friend on the eve of Ramadhan. Something that touched my heart.
Is that a good omen ?
I will keep you posted.
Its time for my comfort food now.
After a nice mug of hot tea.......my head can think straight again.
Ah.......life.......we never know what tomorrow brings !
