Yesterday, Cart and I completed the first day of Ramadan successfully. Its a little bit more challenging for me this year, since sunset is about an hour later compared to Singapore.
Also it is the first time that I’m not breaking fast with my family.
While it used to be that I’d try my best to get home, help my mum in the kitchen, listening to the sermon on the radio followed by this Arabic Songs while waiting for sunset and then have a meal together with the family. It feels festive and lively with the six of us at the table.[audio:arabicsong.mp3]
The dynamics is different this time since its only Cart and me. The radio is quiet since there isnt anything remotely resembling the program that I used to listen to. And since radio online streaming has been suspended, there really is no hope for Singaporeans overseas like me to hear it anymore.
Also we are breaking fast with Italian food! This is very strange for me.
Anyway, a few blog updates in the following weeks – here is small sneak peek on whats to come
Sidenote : Since so many are asking, yes Cart and I are coming back to Singapore in December
