8th Day Of Puasa

and still no water. Cannot go pee whenever I like. Must save water. Petronas station nearby also locked their toilets during this water crisis. huhuhu~

On the bright side, got exemption from cooking so no cooking and that means no to doing dishes too! Seriously, during this puasa month, I think I'm forever washing dishes. I don't like doing them but since I am very OCD about keeping my kitchen tidy and dry, the two boys aren't encouraged to do much there.

So far, Raimie only missed one day of fasting and that was the day that he missed his sahur. Good job Son! 

For buka puasa yesterday, we skipped rice and had this:
Ramadhan set of a 6 inch sub, a drink and a cookie for RM9.90. The cookies weren't ready and were still baking when we finished eating our sandwiches... and the staff kindly put an extra cookie for us to make up for the waiting. That was so nice of him to do that. ^^
Talking about nice people, I got two more freebies at the office yesterday.

A Famous Amos muffin and a pack of kurma (dates). Dunno why people keep giving me stuff to eat but I really appreciate their generousity! I must follow their lead and be more charitable this month!

Today's sahur was :
Roti canai & teh tarik!

Spent a few minutes after sahur getting water from the water tank as there is virtually no queue very early in the morning at the tank.

Can't do much activity today so I think we just draped ourselves on the sofa and be a sloth today! But at the moment, not feeling like I want to go back to sleep so I'll just park myself in front of the computer. Wish I can go out for a run though because the weather is just too nice, all cooling and windy. Nobody is outside getting their morning exercises today it seems, even "Aci" was nowhere to be found today.

  3. Er, do you get early notification about the water cut-off?

    I usually don't get any - reach home tired, in the mood to storm up in the kitchen and found out the tap doesn't cooperate at all! Frustrated! And the laundry basket is fulled with filthy dirty clothes.... no water!! Double frustrated!!

  5. Bravo to Raimie, out of 8 days, he only missed one.

    I'm wondering, can you puasa half day? Cannot, right? Because when Chinese go for vegetarian, we can opt for one day or half day - 24 hours or 12 hours.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Psst, I'm never a vegetarian. Not even for half day!

      There's so many things to avoid, for example vegetarian cannot take Milo, as Milo has, erm, eggs?? Or sort of.....

      I would nibble and nibble in between main meals and sometimes forget that I'm supposed to go vegetarian~~ lol!

      Delete
    2. My vegetarian days always terbatal automatically :p

      Delete
    3. Cannot do half-day puasa lah... but with parents allow our kids to practise with hald-day puasa first. ;p

      Oooo vegetarian cannot take Milo. Now only I know. OK, must keep that in mind.

      Occasional vegetarian is harder because of course sometimes can ter"forget" right Yvonne? ^^

      Delete
    4. vegetarian cannot take milo?
      izzit? i never know about this...

      Delete
    5. News to me too and I'm always careful when I'm organising makan for people in my department since there are vegetarians, Buddhists, Melayu, Hindus and all sorts of people with allergies la... Lucky I never ask tea-lady to make Milo for everyone. ;p

      Delete
    6. The vegetarian shop here serve milo!! Where got eggs inside?

      Delete
    7. milo cannot drink ka? I didnt know. I know is egg cannot take la coz kira as meat.

      Heard for indian if vergetarian, cannot take entah Garlic or bawang.

  6. Wholemeal bread for Raimie~~ looks satisfying and filling, yum! I suppose you don't have to wait long for the bread, ya?

    Why are the cookies under-baked? They don't expect the crowd to increase yesterday? At least they gave extra cookies to compensate your waiting time :)

    A hungry lady is an angry lady, or so they say....

    1. The Subway outlet at Jalan Telawi was OK la... no long queue. But yeah, I think they under estimate the crowd.

      Still, nobody was creating havoc over their lost/slow cookies. All good. We wanted to go without the cookies after eating our subway but the staff told us to wait as the cookies were almost ready so wait lor... ;)

    1. It's the water pressure and the low water level in dams all around Selangor. No rain, no water.

      And the bummer thing is, we SELL water to other country! o.O

  18. Yikes! I can cope with no electricity, but no water in a big city in summer?!

    Oh. Wait. Lagos in Nigeria. I once had to clean myself by swimming in the hotel's pool for about a week. Only problem is: so did everybody else. I suspect they did more than just swim. (+_+)

    Hang in there! Ganbatte!

    PS: Dates? Date palm dates? Oh triple yummy.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Whenever there is a long water disruption, the management here would lock up the pool and we can't enter. We would've use the water there!

      OMG! I hope you didn't get any itchiness after your "bath" in the pool?

      Dates - yes, yummy! The ones I like tend to be expensive thought. :( Must train body to like moderately priced stuff. hu~
