It’s the wee hours in the morning.
I’ve just finished my run. I needed to do a 26K run this week as River Jungle Marathon is a mere 7 weeks away but I’ll take whatever mileage I can do and hope to “pay-it-back” next week with the running group in Putrajaya.

I chose to do my long run in the weekend very early (or rather late at night), so that I finish in time for sahur. I plan to just hibernate at least half a day after this. HAHAHA
Raimie has no issues with fasting. He’s been observing this every Ramadan since he was 6. Of course, when he first fasted; we allow him to break fast at noon or whenever he felt he couldn’t continue anymore. It was never a big issue to get him to fast anyway.
When he first started, we promised him a certain amount of “duit raya” for each day he managed to fast. Turned out, he never bothered to claim the “duit raya” after that so now, just to indulge him a little bit for being such a good boy; he gets to choose whatever he wants to eat for sahur and iftar. He asked for a Nasi Kerabu and we had it last night. No more, no less.
I am blessed to have such easy-going kid. ^^
In this Holy month of Ramadan, it is good for us to look at our lives and count our blessings, however small they may be.
Also, to think about others who are in situations that are far worse than us. While we are in a relatively safe country, there are others experiencing famine, war and displacement.
Another reminder to self:
After realising how fortunate we are, we must strive forward and use our good fortune to be a better person, lead a better life and help others too.
