4th Day Of Puasa

Overslept and actually was still soundly sleeping, dreaming about my favourite pastime : running when Zaini woke me up at *HORROR* 6.15am this mornig! 

So no sahur for us! Took pity with Raimie and told him that he can opt to buka puasa early if he cannot stand the hunger.

Must put a few alarms on for tomorrow. huhuhu

Funny though because even without alarm, my body clock would usually make me awake at around 4am. It is really not normal for me to still be soundly asleep after 6am, unless I slept late the night before! 

Must be because the house is so... eerily quiet nowadays. Since Friday night, which was the day before we start fasting; the scrapping, the marble-playing, the furniture moving, all the noise that would manifest itself around bedtime/midnight are gone. I'm guessing we'll have a quiet home for a month, until Ramadhan is over. huhuhu

Another good thing happen today. I received two packages from two blogging friends.
A keychain from Simple Person and a postcard from Wenn. Also in the photo, SK's present for me being one of the crazy spammers haunting his blog much, much earlier.SK, sorry I only blogged about this today! ;p

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Oh yes... for buka puasa, we had nasi lemak bought at Raimie's friend's Mom near FIL's place. Nasi lemak with sambal sotong for Mommy and Daddy and for Raimie, with ayam goreng berempah. No kuih and just chrysanthemum tea to quench our thirst. We have very simple need for our buka puasa.

For sahur tomorrow (if I do wake up, that is) I'll make fried rice. Simple and quick.

I'd better go to sleep now. Otherwise tomorrow will oversleep again.

    1. Can't sleep well. Serves me right for doing a late night run. That and the house is too quiet! I need time to get used to that!

      So yeah, woke up bright and early. Tried to sleep a bit after sahur but can't. Boo!

      I think that salty drink is what I need now to jolt my senses. ;p

      Thank you for thinking of me, while drinking a weird drink. bwahaha

  6. I used to have a very modern Malay neighbor in Penang during my young days. They kinda weird cos they never follow the time to wake up to fast. They just take their sweet time to wake up, have breakfast then start fasting!!! It could be 8am then.....so they might break fast at 9pm that same night. They follow the number of hours for fasting only. Have you heard of such people?

    1. TM Anay,

      I wake up. Get ready, then hubby wakes up and then I wake son up. Like that lor...

      Yeah, "invisible friends" go holiday for a month. SO get peace and quiet. haha

      So eerie and scary~~
