It’s almost two weeks into Ramadhan, mum and I have ran out of ideas of what to prepare for iftar. For people who don’t cook much, you’d think we’d be having Santai fare every other day like we always do outside the fasting month. But to tell you the truth, we don’t.
However, it’s still a chore to whip up something when you don’t even know what to eat. And apart from bubur pulut hitam, I don’t have any cravings for specific dishes. I’ve had nasi kerabu, twice, thanks to my aunt.
It’s also a bit difficult when you don’t mind having stuff like pasta but others are not very keen. So rice it is. With what, is the question. Hard to think when you’re not exactly inspired, and lazy.
Going to the bazaar is a hassle and I’m actually turned off by most of the wares on offer. Maybe it’s because I’m not familiar with the sellers, whether their food actually taste good or I might spend the night in the loo. Weird, I know, being Malaysian and all. But at least it helps with my resolution to lose the extra kilos I’ve gained.
So we’re now going to our regular places, getting them to prepare our iftar dishes. Tonight, it’s Muhibbah’s turn. Maybe I’ll be inspired by them. Maybe not.
