Halfway Through Ramadan

July 05, 2015

Ramadan goes by really fast, doesn't it? Next week is the last week that the office is open, we'll be working from home for the next two weeks. And then I'm going on a two-weeks vacation so I won't see the office until mid-August! This will be the longest time I leave the office.

So far, I haven't been as productive as I would like it to be. I'm sleep deprived, really! Some days I would be like zoning out and it's just hard to concentrate. I'm actually pretty ashamed of myself. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with other areas of my life, I'm spending time with family and eat together every single day. It's the first year that my little girl fast throughout the days, so I just want to make sure I break the fast at home with the kids. I love doing Tahajud and Dhuha pretty regularly too and enjoying Ramadan blessings :). @heyspice orders are picking up and I relaunched @closetquickies and already sent out 5 packages in less than a week.

Today we had a bukber with extended family at home. I ordered Es Pisang Ijo from Gyanda as well as cookies from Niya to give to my aunts, uncles and cousins. The ladies in Female Daily are truly super, managing side business aside from their busy schedules at work :). I also bought many clothes from Riana and let everyone had the festivity of trying out the clothes and competing with each other on which one to get :D. What is Ramadan without sharing, right?

I had last minute work in the kitchen making Cheesy Beef Nachos. It was literally last minute as I started at 5:10, sautéing the onion, ground beef, salsa sauce and cheese sauce and then baked it for 10 minutes. So happy that my last minute fiasco was quite a huge hit and everyone asked for the recipe :D. I know that no picture = hoax but the dish was done a minute before Maghrib, so I didn't have time to take one.

I'm also happy that my mom made the legendary nasi tomat. It reminded me of my childhood, eating lunch together with my dad on Saturday afternoon. I rarely eat rice but for this special dish I won't think twice :).

Anyway, as usual,  I'm just rambling and smiling at 1:30AM and couldn't be more thankful, grateful and humbled for today. Let's hope we make the end of Ramadan better than the beginning :)
