‘I’ve lost 5KG since fasting during Ramadan…’

‘I also jogged 5KM right before breaking the fast throughout the month. I did it for health reasons, as I just turned 40 years old this year … and also because of ‘girls’! Its been two years since my wife passed away, and its just my daughter and me celebrating raya this year. And I hope that everyone else will also keep on being healthy despite lots of food coming in during Hari Raya Aidilfitri!’

“I’m a train driver for the Ampang LRT line. Usually for buka puasa (breaking the fast) I usually eat it in the train when the time comes…”

“The train cannot stop because of us, what can we do! So I usually pack my food or buy something. Today I plan to break my fast by eating Roti John (a type of Malaysian sandwich)!”

“Ramadhan really unites us. The family will go to a different mosque every Friday to pray tarawih, and we exchange plates with our neighbours…”

“Even my mother who hates cooking during the rest of the year, she will prepare so many plates of kuih, she’ll spend hours in the kitchen to cook for other people. Our clients are nicer to us because they understand that we are fasting, so they shout less. You don’t use the indicator on the road, I say ok lah I don’t have energy to fight with you, go go. Everyone meets up at the bazaar for iftar, and friends are more excited to see friends than food. Then we donate money for charity, RM 1, RM 2 – do you do that when it’s not Ramadhan?

We just become better people. We become happier people. And we are happier and better because we choose simple choices.”

“Well I used to cook every single day when I break my fast this Ramadan, or buy food at the bazaar…”

“But since there’s only a few more days left of fasting…I’ve just decided to go and eat out! There’s no hassle in going through the jam to reach home early, cooking the food, doing the dishes and all that. I’m just going to pamper myself now.”
