Food habits in Ramadhan

ما سبب امتناعنا في رمضان عن أكل البيض والفول والبطاط المقلي والفاصوليا الحمراء؟

This is what we eat normally in dinner before and after Ramadhan, so what happens? Suddenly we think it is more like Ramadhan to eat sambosa, kofta and spring rolls. And another list of pastries that are not that much of digestible.

Why don’t we buy Lebanese bread and why do we start to make our own bread? Why? Seriously, do you like it more? I don’t. I haven’t enjoyed any of the food in Ramadhan. I was eating just to break my fast and to keep going, and to not throw the exsessive food in the trash. sad. and yes, why do you cook extra amounts? could hunger be the reason?

H1N1 phobia

In my home, no single day passes without mentioning the disease and the latest numbers. We admit we are sacred, not for us but for the kids and elderies.

Then someone says it’s normal it’s like normal flu. Ok this part is known, but the other‎ part this person intentionally ignores is, it kills those with weak immune system.

Maybe it’s a propaganda, maybe it’s real. In all cases, we are in panic. نسأل الله سبحانه ان يجيرنا ويعافينا

On another note, OmanTV sucks. But c’mon people, change the channel or better switch off TV.
