for eid

this is what i cooked for buka puasa yesterday. recipe can be viewed here.
Sotong Masak Lemak



(hot tea is almost a must for breaking fast)
Today is already 12th Ramadhan, isn't it? How time flies eh? Remember when we were small, it was like forever for Ramadhan to end. And now, when we woke up this morning, it's already the 12th day!

I haven't really prepared anything for Eid except for ordering a few types of cookies. Even baju raya pun takde lagi. Remember how i was so confident that i'd sew baju raya for us all? It did took off but never landed anywhere near the finish-line. I decided to just go and buy for everyone. Has Eid lost its spark to me? Well maybe. I remember how 'big and great' my preparation was. Baju raya sedondon. Jars of kuih raya. Cakes. Even CD lagu raya! (I was being overly excited as the year before I was in confinement after giving birth to Iman and Iman had a bad jaundice that we spent the 1st raya in hospital) And it ended up with cleaning vomits and sleepless nights as Iman had pneumonia. It was a 2nd consecutive year with dull celebration. 1st year with Iman and his jaundice and 2nd year with Iman and his episode of pneumonia. And now the little guy is having running nose and coughing. We do, take the opportunity in this holy month, berdoa that everything will go on well. He, she, me and daddy. Everyone.

Ops, i still have like 18 minutes to play Zuma. I'm stuck at 5-4. (Zuma is like my usual cuppa ~ in Ramadhan)
