The 2012 Ramadan Photo Dump

Warning: This post shows foods, awful low-light photography skills... and shameless self-promotion group photos . Be afraid, peeps, be very afraid.

While Ramadan is the holy month of fasting, this month I got to taste a myriad of foods. Below are several foods that I sampled.

Selamat Puasa means Happy Fasting, and these are ice cream in a wafer from Pesca. Yum.

Sate Domba Afrika (African-style lamb dish) is grilled diced lamb served with fried banana and sambal (chili paste). The meat is so soft and juicy and...I'm drooling as I type this. Totally recommended.

Roti cane durian keju (a kind of bread with durian and cheese topping) with tea and teh telur (tea with egg). 

 Baltic ice cream

One can never have too much tea. Don't try this at home, though. 

 Pollyput jelly cake

We break the fast after the sun sets, and so the month sees more activities at night, from mosques to markets. 

Masjid Al Azhar Bekasi. On weekends, I do tarawih in this mosque. If you happen to see me there, just say 'hi', I promise I'd be good.

Masjid Al Magfirah (Maghfirah means forgiveness), somewhere along Kalimalang, shot during the breakfasting event with my friend Ai

Moroccan-style food festival at La Piazza Kelapa Gading

This Ramadan has been quite an eventful month. Two colleagues from Marketing and four from Editorial tendered their resignation. It's been quite a sad period.

During the farewell party of one of the colleagues.

On a lighter note, I got to do reunion with many friends during the buka bersama (communal breakfasting) events.

The singletons and a  married one. Can you guess which one already got married?
With TJaP's former journos. 

With highschool friends. 
I just have to post this one. Too cute! Please note the different pose the boys and the girls do. It's Power Rangers against Cherry Belle. Hahaha.

Whichever thing Ramadan gave you this year, accept it and thank God for being given the time to meet the holy month this year because many people do not.

Today is the last work day for this week, for tomorrow is Indonesia's Independence Day and everyone will have a day off. Yay! If you're going on a mudik journey, hope you have a safe homecoming trip. If you're staying in the city, let's roll on Jakarta's empty streets!
