Ramadan Kareem

The passage of time is usually marked by the return of annual events such as the New Year, birthdays and anniversaries. But to me, no other occasion is more significant in telling us that time has sped past like the return of the holy month of Ramadan.

It seems like only yesterday that I was posting stories about fasting in other countries. And tomorrow we'll start the new cycle of this ritual in abstinence and patience. The Almighty has gracefully extended me the time to again experience this month of forgiveness, blessings and reward.

To all my muslim friends, selamat menjalankan ibadah puasa dengan penuh tabah dan kesyukuran. Semuga dosa-dosa kita diampuni Allah swt serta amalan-amalan baik kita diterima.

-> Verse, Chahya, Nurie, Mekyam, mamasita and Kama,

Terima kasih atas ucapan. Semuga bulan yang mulia ini juga memberi keberkatan kepada anda semua.

-> Lee and Andrea,

Thanks for the kind wishes.

You got a point there Lee, about giving our engine a break. Unfortunately sometimes we tend to eat more during this month than other months. The spread of food available at time of breaking fast is so tempting.

Andrea, I would like to suggest you give fasting a try... but then I remembered about your need to have a fag to start the day, heheheh.
