Ramadan Tag

I have been tagged by a friend, here's my response.

1- Do you wake up with enough time margin in Sehri or just rush to the dinning room five minutes before Azan time?

I rush down 10 minutes earlier or so after a dozen wake up calls.

2- A must have food item in Sehri / Iftar?

Sehri: Water

Iftar: Lemonade, Fruit Chart, Pakoray

3- A food item you try to avoid in Sehri/ Iftar?

-None as such but I prefer to have snacks at iftar time instead of dinner (heavy meal)

-My Sehri is very light, these days I take fruit chart. So you can say I avoid heavy food.

4- Have you observed fast without Sehri this ramzan?

Nope.

5- Which thing you crave for after Iftar? Milk, Tea, Coffee, Cigarette … etc?

Something sweet;Chocolate—Cadbury’s fruit and nuts or toblerone these days, or jalebee, or some cheese cake or any good pastry, icecream would do too =)

6- Invited for Iftar this ramzan? How many times and by whom?

Not yet.

7- Invited for Sehri and/or invited somebody for the same at your place?

Nope. Teeba, If you are reading this, the sehri invitation is still open on the condition you bring your Godzilla (pet parrot) along for my kitkat (pet cat) to feast on :p

8- Dinned out at Sehri? If yes, how was the experience?

Nope. Sounds like a crazy idea.

9- Would you like to recommend a place for Iftar?

Home Sweet Home. Iftari’s are best at home. Peaceful environment, family around, great food. I prefer iftar at home and would suggest the same to the rest. Besides I haven’t come across a good economical iftar package at any of the good eat-out’s around.

10- Routine changes in Ramzan, so do the college and office timings. With half of the ramzan gone, have you adjusted yourself with this new routine or still struggling? Or your routine varies from weekdays to weekends in a different way than it used to be before Ramzan; and are you quite satisfied with the goings?

Alhumdulilah I have adjusted well. I enjoy Ramadan more than the usual days and look forward to this month. There is a sense of peace and I gets more time in hand, especially to spend with my mom.

11- Are there any non-Muslims in the circle of your colleagues, class-fellows and friends? And do they avoid eating openly?

Nope, no non-Muslims in my circle.Most Muslims in my circle who don’t fast for whatever the reason, avoid eating openly but I really don’t mind.

12- Do you think you are doing justice with your Ebadaat this month, in a true sagacity as it should be in ramzan?

Sadly, no. I can do far, far better. May Allah grant me the will power to do so.

13- Do you go shopping on chand raat? If ‘yes’ then with family, friends or alone?

O yes. Both with family and friends in two sessions ;). It’s less of shopping and more of having a good time. I always get bangles and hina done on chand raat.

14- Are we going to celebrate this Eid with Musharraf as president? And next Eids with both: Mush and BB as ‘P’ and ‘PM’ respectively?

Doesn’t matter. Eid will be celebrated in any case. I pray the best for the nation

I tag Monay,Teeba and Isbah

Here goes:

1- Do you wake up with enough time margin in Sehri or just rush to the dinning room five minutes before Azan time?

Usually wake up at around 12. So that's a good 5 hour margin.

2- A must have food item in Sehri / Iftar?

Something liquid like juice or water.

3- A food item you try to avoid in Sehri/ Iftar?

Meals.

4- Have you observed fast without Sehri this ramzan?

With the 5 hour margin... heck, no.

5- Which thing you crave for after Iftar? Milk, Tea, Coffee, Cigarette … etc?

Cigars... Oooh YEAH!






... just kidding :p just juice.

6- Invited for Iftar this ramzan? How many times and by whom?

Nope. Hope there aren't any.

7- Invited for Sehri and/or invited somebody for the same at your place?

Not me, my parents invited someone.

8- Dinned out at Sehri? If yes, how was the experience?

Nope. Sounds like a crazy idea.

9- Would you like to recommend a place for Iftar?

Home Sweet Home. Iftari’s are best at home. Peaceful environment, family around, great food. I prefer iftar at home and would suggest the same to the rest. Besides I haven’t come across a good economical iftar package at any of the good eat-out’s around.

Or your routine varies from weekdays to weekends in a different way than it used to be before Ramzan; and are you quite satisfied with the goings?

That depends. Ramazan timings (less working hours :) ) were/are absolutely a blessing when I was in school, college and now work. It was the reverse in FAST though. Getting my usual stay, in the library after classes, cut short was nothing less than infuriating. Nevertheless, the change in timings is always a pleasant experience. No problem with timing adjustments.

11- Are there any non-Muslims in the circle of your colleagues, class-fellows and friends? And do they avoid eating openly?

Nope, no non-Muslims in my circle.Most Muslims in my circle who don’t fast for whatever the reason, avoid eating openly but I really don’t mind.

12- Do you think you are doing justice with your Ebadaat this month, in a true sagacity as it should be in ramzan?

No comments.

13- Do you go shopping on chand raat? If ‘yes’ then with family, friends or alone?

Shopping? Huh? What's that? Maybe mum should worry about that.

14- Are we going to celebrate this Eid with Musharraf as president? And next Eids with both: Mush and BB as ‘P’ and ‘PM’ respectively?

Mush and BB. Hmm... the combo is interesting.

Syra said...

Ethereal said...

It's a habit from my schooldays, waking up in the wee hours to do my stuff like homeworks or play any computers games I get addicted.

Syra said...

Ethereal said...

Early... like 6 - 8.

Ethereal said...

Here's an interesting fact:
"You never gain weight in Ramadan."

Who wants to go on a diet? :)

Syra said...

=) Ramadan is for fasting, not feasting (title of an article i came across in some local newspaper)

Ethereal said...

Yesterday I noticed a funny article in The News. It was about hooligans teasing girls/ladies in markets while they're shopping. Some of these 'teasers' were beaten up by shopkeepers and locals. 'Smart girls' (as quoted in the article) took upon themselves for befitting countermeasures using their 'sandals'.

After betting beaten by shopkeepers, male chaperons and later the females themselves the 'boys' were later handed over to the police for further beatings. Doesn't get any better than this ;)

PS: What's your score Saira?

Syra said...

A thumbs up to the gals (Y)!
As far as the beating is concerned it doesn't get any better then this..but hooligans teasing girls--that's a shame!
beating up boys..Reminded me of my school buddies..lol..we were a gang of gals that was actually feared and dared not messed with ;)
