Berbuka Puasa

Glitter Graphics

It has been a tradition for the Malaysian Embassy in the Netherlands, during every Saturday of Ramadhan, to host a "Berbuka Puasa & Sembahyang Terawih" for all Malaysian muslims' residing in the Netherlands. And this year was no exception but with a slight change. Due to certain reasons, instead of every Saturday, this time it was only held on the second and third Saturdays. We were fairly upset at first when we heard the announcement, as this is the time for all of us Malaysian to meet and get to know each other better but we should be grateful nonetheless the Embassy is hosting such an occasion for us.

Photos above are some of the food that were prepared by the Embasy's staff. These are the main meals served after our Maghrib prayer. I didn't get to take photos of all the "kueh" for the Iftar as I was busy entertaining my 3 stooges. By the time we finished performing our terawih, it was already 11:30 pm and my 3 stooges were very tired (of running around with other children, of course) and sleepy. They had a good time and so did I. It was nice to have the opportunity to gather and perform terawih with fellow Malaysians which gives me the being-at-home feeling.
