Ramadan, Eid Al-Fitr, and Kaftans

Ramadan has come to an end, and it’s time to start fresh.

Ramadan has always been the best time to be a better, Muslim version of ourselves. Of course we don’t always have to wait until Ramadan to fix ourselves. Yet if it weren’t for the surahs, prophecies, or hadists to put our faith and morals to the test, I wouldn’t think some of us would want to change. So here’s to Ramadan for the anger management, little college and old school reunions at break-fasting occasions, and bringing out the kindness inside.

As Ramadan ended, it’s time for the ‘Sorry – Justin Bieber’ fest. Since it’s all about fresh start, people are sending chats or tweets asking for other’s forgiveness and pray for a blessed Eid Al-Fitr. Although I wish people didn’t take this for granted. Forgiving has never been an easy thing to do, and let alone asking people for forgiveness. So try to be the first one make a bit of amends with people you have some sort of beef with (is this phrase OK?). You might not like it but at least you get to be the bigger, better person. Also, it’s a nice feeling to have that darkness taken out of your life.

As for kaftans, I don’t know why people still wear them. I guess it has now become a timeless trend every Eid. I for one am not big about kaftans. You’re probably wondering right this moment, “but you’ve just posted your Eid photo in a blue sea kaftan!?” LOL yes, but I didn't buy them myself because I rather invest in an over-sized shirt or something to wear other than the holidays. My mom had this sudden urge to buy me and my sister a kaftan, and recommended PICNIC’s. I scrolled their Instagram, some impressed me and some didn’t, and there’s this particular color and model I liked but turned out to be sold out. But when we visit their store at PIM 2, there's a whole other prints that they didn't post and the kaftan with the artsy blue sea print caught my eye. I’m puzzled why they didn’t post this one on Instagram but then again I was glad because this print is blue gold, the model of the kaftan fits my body, and was not sold out until I bought it. People kept telling how great the kaftan was when I posted my family photo on Instagram, all thanks to PICNIC.

Can't help but to fall in love with this blue sea! With that 'Allahu Akbar' pose.
With this Eid Al-Fitr post, here I say that I’m sorry that I haven’t been writing in a long while. The last time I wrote a blog post was sometime 3-4 months ago T_T and I felt bad every day, while adjusting to work life. I have a lot of topics that I want to write, so maybe I’ll post something again on the weekends. There’s also a big city trip coming up and I surely want to share my experiences there.

May you all have a blessed Eid Al-Fitr (or an ordinary good day). Eid Mubarak!
