Ramadan-It's not about food .

The food sale at Ramadan Bazaar..

P8117965 P8117973

Few hours before breaking fast..a lot of people stampede the bazaar......

 

The magical moment of Ramadan in Malaysia are those market stalls selling a variety of foods and some are only available during Ramadan. Seeing people of all races and religions shopping and buying these foods are images that will forever be etched in one's mind. Ramadan is also that time of the year where family members make an effort to be home for the breaking of fast and be together as a family to enjoy and share those wonderful spread. Ramadan brings the family closer. Of course eating in moderation and eating healthy foods are key to a longer, happier and prosperous family lives.However, in Malaysia, the month itself has been tainted with the extreme gluttony during the entire month of fasting. Not sure what I’m talking about? Well, I don’t mean I am good Muslim then any other Muslim brother but the gluttony among most Muslims in Malaysia can be seen in the Ramadan Bazaar. A few hours before breaking fast, a lot of people will stampede the bazaar in order to buy loads of food for the breaking fast.

Awang, I totally agree with you. However, the food bazaar already become part of Malaysian culture where regardless of race or religion, everybody is looking forward to throng the food bazaar.

I seldom buy food from bazaar,as I cook daily. Sometimes food bought at bazaar doesn't taste nice. People usually will buy a lot for iftar but sometimes can't finish them
Wishing you Ramadhan Mubarak.
