Ramadhan Recap

Dear Diary,
Alhamdulillah, up until today I manage to fast without any problem even though I’m 8 months pregnant. I’m just a bit dissatisfied because I’ve been performing terawih at home instead of at mosque. There is another 1 week give and take to go before Ramadhan comes to an end. I’m now busy packing for balik kampung. Yup, you heard me right. Balik kampung!!! This year its Hubby’s turn so we are heading to Kelantan together with parent in laws sekeluarga. We’ll get to spend the last few days of Ramadhan in Kelantan. I’ve also been busy planning what dishes to eat when we are over there (Ingatkan busy buat amende kan hihihi). You see Kelantan offers varieties of dishes and I love most of them. Nasi kerabu, ayam percik, nasi tumpang, nasi dagang, laksam, colek ayam, colek perut, akok, sira pisang, ubi kayu rebus, the list is endless.
Alhamdulillah again, my raya preparations are done earlier this year. Maybe partly due to my status as a stay-at-home-mom, I manage to steal precious time in between chores to settle my raya preparations. Most of the preparations are focused on Imran and Zarra. Before Ramadhan started, I dragged both kids to Sogo and shopped for their baju raya. Thank God, Sogo sale starts early this year. Coincidentally, my cousin who is staying in Guangzhou came back for a holiday in July so I asked her to buy some clothes for the kids. As for baju kurung and baju melayu, those were checked from the list during second weekend of Ramadhan. As I am heavily pregnant, I didn’t get me a baju kurung this year. I bought a long dress (jubah) instead. Apart for a few types of biscuits and cakes that Hubby ordered from his colleague, there is nothing new for the house like cushion, curtain or furniture except check out picture below. Both kids are over excited whenever we switch on the lights. Customarily, we don’t really celebrate raya at our house but at our parents’ houses. So, I don’t see the necessity to change everything in the house.
Alhamdulillah again and again, nearly 95% of this year’s iftar meals and desserts were home cooked. I was a bit diligent this year in making desserts for iftar. There were lesser visits to pasar ramadhan this year and kinder to the wallet as well hehehe.
Puding Roti, Puding Roti dgn Sos Kastad & Aiskrim Vanila
Sira Ubi Kayu, Pengat Keledek, Kuih Sagu
Keledek Goreng, Kastad Jagung, Cucur Sayur


Cucur Bawang, Cempedak Goreng, Cek Mek Molek
