DURING THE FASTING MONTH
non-Muslim and was grown among the moslems , what I like in the Ramadan ( the Muslim fasting month ) is
many food stalls on the street , what i don't like the weather is very
hot like maybe in Arab . ,
hot and many shops is closed in the morning because the shops were
belong to moslem . Due to fasting month they are lazy to wake up early
as usual so we must buy our needings for the next day in afternoon . In
afternoon usually many food stalls sell ready food on the street . For the people from a country with few moslem
the Ramadhan season will give
new dimension . In
strict Muslim areas basically all restaurants and food stalls
are closed between sunrise and sunset. In most place in Java will be very difficult to find shop opened
which sell fresh food like fish , vegetable or fruits except in mall or
mini market In North Sumatra there is
always an alternative, as a big part of the population is non-Muslim ,
rumah makan ( restaurant ) is closed just with curtain but you can
enter it for
eating in , just in order not to
be seen by the people who are fasting. If you are in
a Muslim village and need to eat, drink, or smoke, do not do it in public. It
is considered offensive and inconsiderate towards people who are fasting.
The Ramadan is a cleansing period for both the body and the soul.
After full one month for fasting then there is Hari Raya Idul Fitri ( Moslem big holiday ) to come ...
These food are sell for cooling body and intestine most during the
fasting month for moslem but we like it too even we don't do fasting ,
hm....fresh and cool..some restorant offer these food for order in advance :
