Ramadhan and that time of the year....!

Oily and fatty food to be avoided, but they do taste good!

A culinary orgy comes fasting month!

We just have to know where to stop! Or is it conditioning!

If you have trouble not to not have this fried noodle and kway teow just imagine them as just maggot in a big wok that wil rot your body!

My childhood days fasting months were times for reflection and a lot of praying at the Kampong Baru mosque. We eat porridge, dates and syrup water and then after the prayer we just ate simple food. But, alas, today Muslims go on a food binge where their health are threatened!

Zahra and I!

Zahra and her Atok!

I never thought I would be a grandfather and let alone a very happy one until I saw Zahra my grandaughter, and she is a bundle of joy we spent a lot of time together this summer!
