What I like most about Aidilfitri

Happy Raya to all my friend and Sir Izuan. For this entry I want to share what I love most when Aidilfitri comes. The first things comes to my mind is I can start make some biscuit and bake cakes.

When Ramadan is just a week left, people will start to do some preparation. I will focus more on biscuits. We will make at least five types of biscuits and bake two type of cake. I really love this part! My mother and my sister will be my assistant since they are not really interested in making this biscuits. Usually the recipes come from recipes book but I will do some arrangement if necessary. Some of this biscuits will be store at my house and some of them will be given to my relatives at my hometown. I fell happy if people eat my biscuits and I will satisfy if people like my biscuits.

It is like a tradition for my family to bake two type of cake every Aidilfitri. Usually I will make chocolate cake and orange cake. My family likes to eat chocolate cake and so do I. It is easy to make it but it required more cost to make a chocolate cake. It taste delicious and many people want the recipes but I’m sorry, my mother will not aloud it as it is our secret recipes. Why must two? It is because my mother prefers more on orange cake. She likes orange and I definitely will not disappoint her especially during Aidilfitri.

This is what I most like when Aidilfitri comes. Even my Raya break is short. I still can make a few types of biscuits and cake for my guest. So, don’t be afraid to comes to my house because we will serve the best to you.

Childhood Memories of Ramadan

Hello my friend! How are you? Now I want to share my past memories about Ramadan. Every year we will celebrate Ramadan.That means we have to fasting for a whole one month.I still remember when I was a kid I will pray that the fasting month will gone after a day we fasting.That is ridiculous and I already know that.I hope we will just celebrate Aidilfitri without fasting.

That is before.Now I had grown up and I have new opinion about fasting.I'm not a little kid who just want to celebrate Aidilfitri.Fasting is a good medium for people who in dieting to control their food supplier.Fasting also can train us to be more patient and to be more responsible to fulfill their fasting for a month.

When Ramadan comes, the first thing I will remember is my first year of Ramadan that I have successfully fasting for a whole one month.I was in standard three and I feel so happy.I had never though that I can complete my fasting without any day left.Maybe all my reader would say they have fasting for a whole month since they are in kindergarten or earlier than that, but for me it the age is not important.All I really want is to complete my fasting without any forces from anyone and I have achieve what I want at that moment.

At first it is hard to do it.Image this, a kid at school, surrounded by non Muslim friend who love to eat in front of us, the Muslim kid and without our parent beside us that makes me easier to break my fast, it is a big challenge for me.After a week, I get use with it and is not a big challenge anymore.I just continue my fasting till the end of Ramadan.

Now I'm 19 years old.Fasting is not a big issues to me.I will wait for the Ramadan and ready to fulfill my responsible as a Muslim.I feel happy when Ramadan comes near as I know after that Aidilfitri will soon coming to replace the fasting month.
