Ramadhan Is Here

Syukur , another Ramadhan is here.
Syukur, I am still breathing, still enjoying the wonders of life, still having things to complain about.
Syukur, my hubby, my kids and my family are all well and healthy.

There will be attempts this year - Khadra and Khaleeq are both old enough to join us with the fastings. Khadra would like to try the full-day. Khaleeq? Well.. Ikut je lah Khaleeq.. After all, their cousins will be fasting too.. Biarlah.. Kalau tak larat, boleh je buka.. Separuh hari pun jadilah.. Asalkan try..

A bit late, I know. Their cousins kat Kelantan around their age, semua dah puasa penuh. Anak-anak aku barulah nak terkedek-kedek meng-try. hihihihihi

I remember sometime , long, long ago.. My first full-year of fasting was during my Standard 1 in Sekolah Sri Petaling. I remember my class teacher, Mrs Fong asking me to break my fast coz I was having high fever that day. I blatantly refused coz I had set my target to get all RM30 that was promised to me by Ibu should I succeed in fasting the whole month of Ramadhan. Mrs Fong had to ask Teh Kok Hin, my 1Kenanga classmate, to carry my schoolbag out to the waiting area once school was over. (Sweetlah, Kok Hin - I still remember that, you know..) Alhamdulillah - that was my first year I got to puasa penuh. :) Aaawwwwww!!

Thinking of giving them incentives lah, macam trick my mom dulu-dulu.. One day of full fasting = RM1.00, half day = RM0.50. So, my Kak Long Ziezi would always try to tempt me to buka if she had already done it for the day. Siap makan ice-cream depan orang lagi. Dengki, kan? hihihihihi

That was , what? Some 30 years ago? Putting things in perspective and the inflation rate and what nots, perhaps a review of the rates are in order.. Maybe, I'll just bribe them with toys. That normally does the trick. hihihihi

We will be based in Pondok Azlul for a while. At least throughout the school break. Need to get the kids to mengaji and solat at the masjid and all. And I just love praying at our Masjid al-Amin in Taman Tenaga. Boleh bawak budak-budak sekali to get them accustomed to the jemaah and all. :)

Looking forward to Ramadhan. A lot.

Maaf zahir batin, guys. Have a blessed and productive Ramadhan. ;)
