Twenty-nine Days Later

Hello, lovelies!

I’m not sure if it’s just me; but boy, did 29 days pass us by just like that?!

Having had my heart filled with so much family love & stomach filled with so much glorious food (oh HI caloriesssss, we meet again!), I could never imagine a better 1st Syawal! I hope yours was just as great, no matter where you may be.

With that, I’d like to wish all Muslim brothers & sisters:

Also, I’d like to announce that I’ll be on a hiatus for a month and will not be updating this space. I’d like to soak myself in all of the Eid’s joyousness and to focus on my Pursuit of Academic Happyness lol.

Meantime…….. after a few days of Eid, I know some might not be able to look at another ketupat or stomach another piece of Beef Rendang. Take charge of the kitchen, pick a recipe from CP at Home and get busy!

PS: You can still reach me on my Instagram, email or Twitter.

With generous dollops of Eid-lovin’, Su

Hello lovelies!

How has your Ramadhan been so far? I’m hoping it’s been good for you and your loved ones. Personally, I’ve been noticing myself to be a little less sickly and much less sloth-like. I will now reluctantly try to believe the saying “You are what you eat.” I’m clearly in denial gorging shamelessly on em calories!

My Ramadhan has been great! My bunch of friends are mostly Chinese, and they’d wait till 7.20pm to munch on dinner together. On rides home, they’d inquisitively ask about Sahur, Iftar and other phenomenons related to the fasting month. And they in turn, would share their bits on the Hungry Ghost festival. Blessed. Back at home, there hasn’t been any dip in food supply. I have a couple of Muslim neighbours, and it’s been barter trade these few days! Mad love! Totally basking in the spirit of the holy month. =)

I’ll be posting a traditional recipe up soon! Like really soon. And I’ll prolly start my little cookie factory this week because I’m expecting a wave of hectic days in the coming weeks. So, cookie recipes too, yes?

Anyhoo, you have a good week ahead! Be good ok?

PS: I’ve been an Instagram addict the past weeks. If you got here from my IG, HELLO YOU! If you do have IG on your Iphone, add me up: suhaila_08. I’ve been browsing through a daily stream of food porn in there!

With love, Su

Twenty-nine Days

This evening, in the midst of the usual family dinner, we gathered by the radio to hear that tomorrow would officially be the arrival of a blessed month that every Muslim look forward to each year: Ramadhan. It is a month where one ideally detoxifies their mind, body, heart and soul.

Personally, in Ramadhan – food, ironically, seem to be in exceptional abundance (we are such blessed creatures, y’know?) and it truly warms the heart to share them with neighbours, family and friends.

And just for you, lovelies, I’d planned out a few things to share throughout these 29 days:

Sahur Recipes

For sahur or pre-dawn meal, my family traditionally needs just about anything as long as it came with rice; to store up energy for the day. So, I figure I’ll share a few recipes that you can prepare the night before, and heat up just before dawn.

Iftar Recipes – Desserts / One-dish Meals

Iftar, or more commonly known as breaking of fast, would usually be take-aways with the exception of occasional one-dish home-cooked meals. Most of the time, I like to prepare desserts because I’ve got a sweet tooth by nature. Ain’t no surprise that everyone else in my family does too!

Iftar Venues

It’s quite commonplace here in Singapore to have restaurants and food joints fully-booked during the Ramadhan evenings between 7-7.30pm. I’m quite guilty of choking up the bookings too, because there is just something about sharing a hearty meal outside with family or friends after a long day of abstinence.

FOTD

I’ll be posting a few on Countless Plates Gallery. I hope it’ll help you decide where or what to have for iftar with your loved ones.
