Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends



Welcome back to Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

 

Welcome back and how April is soon leaving us!

We are still enjoying Ramadhan and as the school is off, the kids are enjoying their break at home. We don't really get anywhere during this Fall break as going out during fasting might not be as enjoyable as we want it to be. Nevertheless, we spend some quality time together and that's what's important.

I have been wanting to explore the rest of the country during Eid al Fitr break and we sincerely hope that we do have time to do so. COVID-19 is still around us and we just have to remain vigilant. Many places are already open and now we don't have to show vaccine pass or scan the COVID-19 tracker. They are all become voluntary, but wearing mask inside of the closed area or hall is still mandatory. New Zealand will be opening borders in October and we are expecting more people and tourists coming.

Well, so much to be excited about and again, hopefully we all remain healthy in the coming days, weeks and months. 

Now, it's time for you all to join us on Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends

WW: Cooking during Ramadhan

 Ramadhan is soon coming to the end.


This special month has taught us many things, including how to share with others, how to control our emotion and how to redeem ourselves in front of our Creator. Special month indeed require special treatment and one of the beauty of Ramadhan is that we spend extra time with our beloved family, friends and communities.



I do spend more time at home and after all the prayers we have to do, I cook a lot.
I really enjoy it and for me, cooking is certainly one of my cup of teas. I don't really cooking something fancy but the fact that you are creating something special for your beloved ones is really a luxury already. At least for me and my family.


So during our first Ramadhan in New Zealand, I managed to prepare some meals for shaum or our breakfast before dawn, and ifthar, or breaking the fasting. I cooked some entrée as well as the main courses of the day. at later stage, I cooked some cookies too, like kaastengels, nastar and more. Some cooking are successful, some are not LOL, particularly the new areas of bread that I have been exploring lately. 

here come nastar..


I guess I have shared some recipes before and this year, I have to admit I got so absorbed with the work at the office that I haven't shared any recipes. My bad! I hope I will be able to sit down and share more. What I manages to get is some photos of the food I cooked so far and here they are.

This is really a special time and I am so grateful for being able to experience all this here in Wellington, New Zealand, with the Frakarsas, my beloved. 

See you on the next stories and meanwhile, stay safe, happy and healthy, wherever you are!

Join us on (almost) Wordless Wednesday and have fun with the link party

Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends


How is your Ramadhan, dear friends?

Wellington has been so nice and gentle for us who are observing Ramadhan. Not only that the days are getting shorter, but the weather is so friendly as well. We have beautiful days but not too hot that makes us thirsty during the day. The works continue but we have shorter hours in the office. The kids are now enjoying their 'Fall' break as well so they don't have to go to school. it makes things easier for sure. All in all, Ramadhan has been very nice and special.

During the Easter break, we didn't go anywhere. Besides Ramadhan, we were thinking of  going somewhere a bit up in the North during the Lebaran break. Since many things are getting more and more expensive, we definitely have to plan it well and therefore save some money as well. 

We are pretty much busy at the office as meetings never stop. But most of the meetings or courtesy calls we have with different counterparts are very intriguing and enriching. We discuss a lot about the latest global issues, the bilateral priorities and possible collaborations as well as economic cooperation. Not to mention the networks and friendship we get from these new friends, colleagues and families here in Aotearoa. For sure, all the journey here in New Zealand is one that my family and I cherish. Well, I will certainly try to share more stories from the land of the Kiwis.

Now, let's enjoy Wonderful Wednesday with My Purple World, Oh My Heartsie Girls and Friends. Have fun with the links!
