每年回歷九月係回教徒齋戒之月, 呢個時候全球回教徒都要守齋一個月, 日出之後日落之前係唔可以有嘢落肚, 而且齋戒月要儘能力佈施幫助有需要嘅人.. 我唔係回教徒, 所以係袖手旁觀喇, 食晏時間可以唔駛人逼人鬆動好多架, 呵呵..
講到齋戒月, 其實最開心嘅就係啲臨時檔攤(Bazaar Ramadhan), 一般都係賣食物飲品.. 我唔知其實呢個傳統係因何誕生, 可能餓咗成日, 冇力落廚煮飯, 兼忍唔住要儘快開餐, 所以就索性出邊買現成嘅?? 對於非回教徒嚟講, 見到週圍琳琅滿目嘅傳統食物, 你都好難可以置之不理啦係嘛?? 我尤其鐘意啲傳統糕點, 每次經過, 各式各樣嘅糕點就好似同我招手咁, 我又於心何忍唔理佢哋吖.. 行去搭車嘅時候, 買幾件嚟食, 行到車站剛好食晒, 咁樣好滿足呢, 哈哈~~
it's the 9th month of the islamic calendar, all muslims from around the globe shall be fasting for the whole month now.. no food and no drinks are allowed after sunrise and before sunset, and furthermore they are advised to do more charity donation as far as their affordability allows to help those in need.. i am not a muslim, so i am not bound to this religious rule, and so i don't have to get caught up in crowd during lunch time, hehe..
when it comes to the fasting month, i certainly won't miss out the Bazaar Ramadhan, temporary hawker stalls selling all kinds of traditional food and drinks.. i have no idea the reason behind this traditional practice, perhaps people get too tired and too hungry to cook and can't wait to eat first thing in the evening after a long day of fasting, so they just bother to buy readily cooked?? to non-muslims, the bazaar is just as tempting with the huge varities of mouth-watering food, it's just simply irresistible i say.. for me, i love those traditional kuih muih the most, everytime i walk past for sure they are like waving their hands and begging me to buy them, so how could i just walk away ignoring them?? hehe.. i would have bought a few on my way to the station, and would have finished eating the moment i reach the station, it's pretty satisfying actually, hahaha!!
