Bulan Puasa and I! (Update Oct 18th)

Puasa is here and today’s already day #5. So far my stats are looking ok (at least the important ones hahahahaa)

Puasa: 21 /24 <---- have to ganti lah nampaknya :)
Terawih: 4/24 <---- target 6 this year.
Berbuka with family 7/24
Sahur: 23/24
Productivity @ work: 2/10
Productivity after berbuka: 7/10

Sahur:
Sahur for me starts around 430am and end at 435am hahahaha yeah its quick lah. I stay on my own so I stick with cereal and susu. Its fast, good and simple. Its wham-bham-thanku-ma’am hahahahah.

Waking up:
Usually lapar already (maybe its all in my head) but getting ready is quicker coz no breakfast….but i sure do miss my morning coffee.

Working in the am:
Still ok as the sahur meal helps out in keeping me going but I get cold easily as..yelah theres no food to process so the body produces lil heat. Working here is still bearable as long I my headaches are in check.

Lunch:
What lunch? hahahahahah

Working in the pm:
This is when the headaches start (for various reasons) and yeah I’m feeling cold (usually wear my sweater lah…that I haven’t washed since my US yrs hahahahaha). Productivity drops to scary levels as I’m focusing more on “bila nak berbuka” than the work I have to do 🙂

Heading Home:
One word: JAM! Takes me twice as long to get home and the headaches don’t help…but I gotta stop by the pasar ramadhan (usually ampang jaya) to get..well usually chicken lah kot. By the time I reach home its about 650-7…so just nice 😉

Berbuka:
Buka puasa is always fun….its cute (yeah cute hahahah) that everyone gathers for berbuka, brings some food to the table and together wait and the azan. Then we feast and take our time (unlike on non-puasa days!). What do I have?
First: Kurma! (we stil got some nice big juicy one’s from our Umrah trip (damn….i lapar now)
Drinks: 1 hot and 1 cold
Food: As long as there’s some kind of grilled or fried chicken! 🙂
Desserts: more kurma hahahahahahah

At night:
I try to make it to terawih but definitely not everyday and if I do….its 8+3 only 🙂 . Seronok actually as it makes Ramadhan more special. I usually check the pahala for terawih so see if have to go or not hahahahahha…I know its stupid but I know you people do it 2 😉
If I don’t go to terawih…then I’ll be at home doing some work or something else….

All in all, I find it extremely difficult to work during puasa as I am so used to have something to drink (usually coffee) while I work and feeling hungry is a “lil” distracting. So yeah for me bulan puasa is not very productive in terms of work (and working out) but its good also lah….it gives me the opp to focus on other things like blogging hahahhaha..no no I mean seriously….its a special month that lets you focus on other areas of your life..like your connection to god and family & friends (whom you may not see 2 often otherwise).

Selamat Berpuasa to Everyone!

  3. Kevwhat? that sweater has never been washed since your US years? Gosh, I wonder what the smell is like.. It’s funny that you actually checked the pahala before going to terawih.. I did that last time. But all pahala counts to cover my sins.. 🙂 Anyway, who’s with you in that pic..? Your babyboo?Selamat Berbuka..

  15. Being a Chinese convert for more than 12 yrs, I must say I am beginning to get a hang of “puasa-ing”. Like you..i only hope i don’t get my migraine attacks if not sure “koyak one”.Guess what, my 8 yr old daughter (a fan of yours from AF) is now trying to puasa too. So proud of her, although I worry as she does not wake up for sahur (nor do I, just have a late supper). Have been trying to convince her to puasa 1/2 day only for a start.Selamat berpuasa to you and all visitors to your wonderful blog.

  23. bro, you tahu kan yang hadis kelebihan tarawih itu palsu (google for it) ….. sorry to disappoint but then kita mana tahu apa tuhan akan balas, so pergi saja dengan hati yang ikhlas, balasannya mungkin yang lebih baik dari yang dijangkakan …. time ramadan elok doa banyak2 …. especially time masa sahur yang bagus (aku gak sahur cornflake, ada geng weh) …. mintak apa aja, badan sihat, kerja bagus, kaya maya, hilang pening, dan ehem, jodoh menjadi 😉 … sambil kita berdoa dan baca quran untuk yang telah pergi (alfatihah).peace.
