Ramadhan Mubarak and Cat Tongues..
The holy month of Ramadhan for Muslims is just a day away and already supermarket shelves are loaded with a huge variety of fresh, dried and stuffed dates since a week ago... I hv been waiting for the month of Ramadhan since like forever.. its a time for spiritual reflection, prayer, doing good deeds and spending time with family and friends.. dont get me wrong yah.. u do good deeds whenever u can but doing it in the month of Ramadhan is something special..
As we already know.. fasting is intended to help/teach Muslims self-discipline, self-restraint n generosity... It also reminds them of the suffering of poor ppl.. who may not get to eat lavishly all the time... It is common to have one meal (Sahur) just bef sunrise and another (Iftar) right after sunset... This meal will commonly consist of dates, following the example of the Prophet Muhammad and bec Ramadan is a time to spend with friends and family.. the fast will often be broken by Muslim families coming together to share in an evening meal...
Well anyway.. long story short... this is the last cookie that I will bake bef Eid.. as always I usually will try to post pics and recipes of my desert/kuih during Ramadhan.. sooo.. I would like to wish u guys a peaceful Ramadhan.. May this Ramadhan be filled with many blessings for u and ur family.. May u hv a very happy Ramadhan..
