sweet & lovely


What is a celebration without food, glorious food? What you see above is Roti Pisang (banana), a variation of Roti Canai, a local Indian savoury type of pancake.

Yesterday was the first day of Deepavali. A 5 day festival. Following that is Hari Raya Aidil Fitri, which marks the end of the fasting month and the beginning of the new Islamic calendar. Raya should fall on Tuesday or Wednesday depending on when the moon is spotted. Can't wait! Raya is a month long celebration. I'm gonna get fat!

voila, c'est le genre de photo qui me fait prendre dix kilos rien qu'en la regardant (je vais devoir refaire mon footing ;o)) ). Humm cela donne vraiment envie.


veiled, it is the kind of photograph which makes me take ten kilos only by looking at it (I will have to remake my jogging ;O)) ). Humm that gives really desire.

After just reading Nabeel's Cosmos post on Eid-ul-Fitr, I feel really up to speed on all of the festival activity. I didn't realise that Divali (as known in the UK) was moveable, but then I guess it would be. It's just that it always seems to coincide with the English Guy Fawkes Night (Nov. 5th), so that the firework oparties just go on & on. A month??? Makes Ramadan worth enduring, no? Hang on! Divali? Ramadan? Eid? Do you get to clelobrate the fests of 2 different religions?

'Clelobrate' is a derivation of the better-known English verb, 'celebrate'.
I just derived it. What a great word!
