Ramadhan Week 1

Alhamdulillah...diberi kesempatan untuk bertemu Ramadhan sekali lagi. Diam tak diam, Ramadhan dah seminggu berlalu. Its been rather challenging adjusting this time around...we've got a new helper, still very new, kenits tried fasting through out the day, Aiman with his endless tuition, Kipan in the afternoon session - so hot and hubs just recovering from dengue. But I believe steadfastly that Ramadhan is a superb month. Alhamdulillah...

We kicked off our Ramadhan with some basic baking of cornflake crunchies. Bukannya untuk biskut raya. Tapi buat seghonok sambut Ramadhan. And the girls love the baking session. And ...Kipan volunteered food tasting as usual la kan...Itu la Irfan Kip!


The toughest part about Ramadhan would be menu. Both for iftar and sahur. Adoiiii apa la nak makan and masak nih... During Week 1, I had meetings and they trailed off into berbuka puasa, hence kiddos berbuka puasa with hubs. On days that we iftar as one complete family, it would be masak-thon for me, as I reached home from office. Macam lipas kudung dibuatnya... or better... macam octopus - banyak tangan! Hahaha

Hari Sabtu atau Ahad pertama, memang menjadi kebiasaan setiap tahun... azween and family akan berbuka rumah parents di Gombak. Just happen, this year our first iftar fell on a Sunday. Lagi ramai orang, lagi banyak anak tekak, lagi macam-macam order. Hmmmm...gitu la kekdahnya! So here's our menu on that day:

  • Taugeh masak kicap (favourite TokDy)
  • Sambal tumis ikan bilis (favourite TokDy)
  • Ikan parang masak asam pedas
  • Kentang goreng cili dengan tempe (kiddos' request)
  • Ulam bende (favourite TokMy)
  • Fried chicken wings (Qeely's request)
  • Salad telur and tomatoes (buat ratah!)
  • Karipap daging (must have!)
  • Cekodok pisang (must have jugak!)
  • Stew ayam marinate lea perrins (hub's request) - not in picture


Jangan ditanya ek, start masak jam berapa. All home cooked except karipap and cekodok were prepared by TokMy....and when it's home cooked, mestilah dengan garam buluh and tender loving care...ahaks!

Alhamdulillah....selesai Week 1 and going into Week 2. Semoga dipermudahkan urusan di bulan Ramadhan kali ini dan hari-hari yang akan datang lebih baik dan lebih sempurna Ramadhan ku....InshaAllah. Amiin.

Ramadhan ya Mubarak,
azween
