Sixth Day of Ramadan. Counting My Blessings

With food. Kinda.

A few get together with running friends, colleagues and of course enjoying meals together with my lovely family. Food brings people together. ^^

Had a small Krazirunners gathering some time back, a week before Hat Yai Marathon which one of the ladies participated. Congrats Nannoor on her second full marathon there!

I had not planned to stay long for dinner but the dinner party was great and we actually stayed on chatting till it's almost closing time! Great company. A pleasant surprise too, that Rashid was there having dinner  with his friends.
A department head is leaving the company soon and had arranged for a party to inform her staff about it. I was invited to join her and her staff for the lunch. I am touched that they included me.  All the best to you!
 
My own department lunch and I shared two dishes with a colleague. We always do that whenever we eat out. Actually, usually it's the three of us but one was away for training.
A once-a-week treat with the family. Somethis this brand of ice cream. Sometimes, we get our treat eating RM1 ice cream bought from 7-11. Sometimes
from the ice cream vendor. All are nice especially as I can share them together with the people I care.
A simple meal is still a nice meal with family and friends.

Disclaimer : all daytime eating above were done prior to the fasting month. heh heh

  9. I was just going to say, wait, woa, you call this fasting? :D

    The dish that looks the best is the mielies (corn). Have you ever eaten roast mielies with soy sauce in Japan? I bet you have. I introduced my family in South Africa to it. Initially they were sceptical - we have roast mielies with butter and honey - but now they've all been converted to my faith. ;)

    Replies
    1. You must convert me too!

      I eat my mielies with
      1. butter & salt
      2. BBQ sauce

      Butter and honey? never. Soy sauce? Why haven't I tried it before? xD
