Drooling over the ramadhan foods

Ramadhan started this Monday. The month of Ramadhan is the ninth month in the Islamic lunar calendar, and is a month where Muslims must fast (”puasa” in Malay) from sunrise till sunset. In Malaysia, it basically means from 7:30am to 7:30pm.

This keeps me thinking about all the mouth watering ramadhan food in Malaysia. Usually the Muslims "buka puasa" (breaking of fast) around 7:30pm, so ramadan bazaar or "pasar ramadan" in Malay will start around 4pm and close before the buka puasa.

Hmm, give me a "ikan bakar" bbq fish anytime.

"ayam bakar" bbq chicken will make my day too.

Ketupat, best eaten with satay sauce or rendang.

This photo is so beautiful it amplifies the desire to eat the cake.

Look like a mini "roti canai" Indian bread to me. Best accompanied with some curry sauce.

The rainbow color layer cake.

To all my French friends who discovered agar agar in Malaysia, this one is dedicated to you! :-)

I wish I could in Malaysia now to savor all these goodies!
