Ever since I was in primary school, my chinese or indian friends would always ask me this (when I'm fasting), "Will you die?"/ "Adakah kamu akan dijemput oleh Malaikat Maut?". And my constant reply would be "It's not like that at all" I sighed. Oh oh I remember one of my chinese classmate when I was in standard 1, who told me he wanted to convert into Muslim but his parents wont allow (duh youre 7years old, kid)and the first thing I told him was " Belilah buku teks agama darjah satu"/"Why dont you get yourself Agama Islam's Standard 1 text book." Okay this story does not have anything to do with fasting, it's just that I tiba2 teringat. OKAY MOVING ON.
I dont think fasting alone is the best way to lose weight. First you have 'sahur', sahur is the time (before sunrise), that you eat whatever you want. And my tips is that when you sahur, you taste everything you have in the house, so during day time, you can look down to the food and say "HNNNS (no not Hanis, but hnsss, like a hissing sound), IVE TASTED YOU." That way, you wont crave for it, brilliant, I know. I had chilli crabs for sahur today! And chocolate chip and dates (its a fruit. not like dating during sahur) and rempeyek and and yeah banyak lagi. But seriously, dates alone, will give you all the energy you need during day time. THATS WHY WE ARE NOT DYING PEOPLE. As soon as we've finished our sahur just now, Alisya went all
"OKAY THATS 13HOURS BEFORE WE EAT AGAIN". Wtf gila.
So yeah, after the 13 hours of not eating and not drinking, then only we could break fast (not breakfast like sarapan, but break our fast) once we hear the azan Maghrib. Yes you would think we would gobble up all the food like a turkey gobble gobble, but actually, no matter how delicious and no matter if the food on the table have like wide variety (tau foo fa, air tebu, dadih, murtabak, ayam percik, apam balik, kebab, eleh macam aku tak tau je apa korang beli kat bazaar) hohoh, we wont eat that much. A drink and a plate of food would be enough. Amazing aint it? Its so beautiful :') Would you lose weight by fasting alone? It depends on your body really. Some would lose weight, and some would gain. But if you do enough prayers, now thats the best way to tone up and lose weight. Beats the gym hands down. TAPI JANGANLAH RUKUK 3SAAT, SUJUD 4SAAT, MALAS GILA.
Okay thats about it on fasting, for now. But whats an entry without picture right?
I PRESENT TO YOU, HANIS ZALIKHA BEFORE SHE KNOWS HOW TO FAST.
