The Best Ramadhan In Malaysia

While Malaysia was suffering from the ignominy of the stupid ISA issues, Wifey and I had had a good weekend with friends and family members.

We went back to KL from JB on the 3rd September and the whole weekend was spent with our children. The whole house was a circus for a while, especially when we had a potluck berbuka puasa with friends at home. Wifey made an excellent rendang that I still crave for now.

The following Monday we went for berbuka with my kids at my house in USJ. Wifey made mee hoon goreng and we bought some stuff as well.

Later, we adjourned to the Old Town White Coffee at Jaya One to meet up and have sahur with Liverpool Babe, Rainmaker, Spena, Gemgem, and Bro Rina. It was a good outing that lasted 5 hours.

The very next day, after berbuka at home with Wifey, Rainmaker, and Spena, we were asked to join Thebo and husband for supper at SS2 Murni. Gemgem, Liverpool Babe, and Bro Rina joined us as usual.

On the 10th, I went for a meeting with Gemgem at the Havana Club discussing some serious issues (for once!) before heading to the KFC outlet in Wangsa Maju for a farewell supper for Gombak4Life who was tasked to bring a certain typhoon to Taiwan for a month at least. For the first time we saw Liverpool Babe with a sad face.

Another berbuka session was held at our favourite haunt, Las Carretas and this session was attended by Bro Rina, Spena, Gemgem, and Liverpool Babe. This was Bro Rina‘s treat for Wifey and I before we head back to JB. As usual, I whacked the BBQ Beef Back Ribs. Oh, to sink my teeth into all that succulent meat again…

After that we left for Mersing and subsequently Tioman. Bro Rina and Spena convoyed with us from home, and we had sahur at a mamak joint in Kluang.

We boarded the 6.30am ferry bound for Tioman. The rest slept before I did.

I wished then that Wifey was doing something more than just putting her head on my lap..haha!

I took Spena for a wreck dive at Roger Wreck. We did a shore dive, swimming out from Dive Asia to the buoy marking the location of the wreck, some 400 meters out. It was an excellent dive for both of us. It was Spena‘s first wreck dive. And oh…MK was there too…hahaha!

Later, while waiting for berbuka, Wifey and I enjoyed the sunset, followed by a beautiful evening post-dinner.

We had an excellent seafood dinner, with excellent company. Wifey and I feel that there has to be a repeat of this.

This Ramadhan month will go down as the best in a long, long time. I have not enjoyed Ramadhan this much since I was in primary school. What more having the person I truly love by my side.
