مبارك عليكم الشهر – Ramadan Kareem

It is here at last, probably one of the hottest Ramadans we are going to spend in Kuwait, but still there is something that I love about Ramadan. To everyone مبارك عليكم الشهر & Ramadan Kareem, this is going to be an interesting one, even though last year was from August until September, I’m sure what people have planned, it seems a lot of people are spending their Ramadan outside of Kuwait because of the heat. I for one don’t have an issue with anything except the thirst that we will face from this heat. I’m not hungry yet, but food is on my mind and luckily during ramadan there is a lot of food to choose from during futoor.

Pure Hunger

Usually I try to eat earlier in the day so that I don’t get too full at night, I try to keep it light at night as to maintain or lose weight. I did a pretty good job of losing the weight I gained going from 96 KG back to 93 KG. Last night was a different story, I got so caught up with work and then a few social events that I forgot to eat and didn’t manage to get home until 10:45 pm. At that point I didn’t care what the hell time it was and decided to eat a very late lunch. Did I love the muchboos laham and kubbah bil laban, yes I did very much, I enjoyed every bite and then laid down in front of the tv for a good half hour before deciding to move again.

Ramadan Kareem

Ramadan Kareem to all, this is going to be an interesting one since its going to be in the lovely heat of the summer. We are trying to keep our activities the same on the weekend, I’m still trying to get up on the wake board, we just have to deal with the thirst. As usual it isn’t the hunger that gets me but the thirst. I honestly look forward to Ramadan every year since I get to see family so much, but I get annoyed with people who don’t want to work because they are fasting and a lot of things come to a halt in Kuwait because of that but here is hoping everyone has a fun Ramadan.
