My Ramadan After Day 1

Halo, assalamu alaikum.

Alhamdulillaah, great days are here: Ramadan days.

This year's Ramadan we fast for about 13 hours. It's always like this here in Indonesia, alhamdulillah.

There are days when we fast for 14 hours a day when Ramadan comes in summer time in Southern Hemisphere. This is May, so it's autumn di Southern Hemisphere.

We thank Allah this is a sunny and cheerful Ramadan. Several years ago we had Ramadan on June. The weather was chilly. Alhamdulillah.

Ramadan has been 7 days now. Tomorrow morning will be Ramadan 8 insya Allah.

My sons have fasted for 7 consecutive days. They are really grown up now masya Allah. They have been fasting with less and less drama.

Ramadan Day 1

Hallo, assalamu alaikum.

We are in Ramadan now. Alhamdulillah. Ramadan Day 1 went well, alhamdulillah. No drama, just a little weaknesses, but everything ran well.

Mr. Inventor and Mr. Professor are off school for 4 consecutive days. Alhamdulillah, it's been a great way to start Ramadan.

This year is different for us because we have our Ramadan in our own house! Masya Allah.

After 7 years, we are able to buy the house we used to live in.

Back to Ramadan Day 1.

Unlike previous Ramadan, I didn't feel too hectic preparing meals for suhoor and iftar.

I said to myself and my family that we would have simple and humble menus. 😅😅

I mean I will not try to serve fancy meals such as kolak or es dawet or anything.

"No chill drinks, please," said my husband.

"Alright."

So, the suhoor night I cooked soto ayam. A very simple meal of Indonesian food which is rich in taste and easy to make.
