5 Things that Only Happen during Ramadhan

First of all, i would like to wish all Muslims Selamat Menyambut Bulan Ramadhan and Selamat Berpuasa. To celebrate this holy month of Ramadhan, lets take a look at the things that only happen during Ramadhan. Whether you like it, love it, or just plain hate it, it's here, and it's gonna be for a month.

5. Ridiculous Buffet Prices

Can you see the RM?

When the month comes, every bloody restaurant, hotel, cafe, warung and mamak will have so-called 'great' offers for berbuka puasa treat. But the problem is, most of them are expensive like hell. Close to a hundred bucks just to have your berbuka puasa? I don't think so.
In the end, the pasar Ramadhan is still the best.

But the food is not, ridiculous, mind you

4. Boring Puasa Greetings

Yes, everybody wishes them. Everybody sends them. Year in, year out. SMS wishes are still popular. And those pantuns are still very, VERY popular. The pantuns have the same meanings/points, but with only different ways of saying it. Its almost spontaneous, everybody can just come up with one in a matter of seconds, and it will spread like wildfire.

Anak kera pandu Unser,
Mati terlanggar pokok kelapa,
Esok kita dah nak puasa,
jangan buat - buat lupa.

Ooh..classic.

3. Ridiculous Offers

Other than exorbitant prices, the are also some ridiculous offers during this month. Every single store, shop, mall, boutique or whatsoever would want to integrate the word "Ramadhan" into its offers.
???

If you think tudung Ramadhan is fine, then that's okay.
But what about "Buy 2 buckets of Heineken, and get 1 free, only this month!"

This one is not available this year?

2. Traffic Jams, yay

Everybody's favourite phenomenon is back, stronger than ever. Traffic jams are everywhere, everytime. But what's so special this time around?
Well, it fucking intensifies ten-fold.
And don't get me started about the LRTs.

LRTs and monorails included

Offices and schools are usually closed earlier than usual, and so, the mad rush gets even worse. Everybody's dying to go home for buka puasa, everybody's itching to go and buka puasa outside, all at the same time, and what do you get?
Buka puasa in the car.
At least twice this month, you will somehow and someway experience it.

1. Everybody's Favourite, the Pasar Ramadhan, the Legend

*Hysteria*

Yeah, who doesn't go to one anyway? You are not a Malaysian human if you miss this opportunity to find an abundant choice of food, and stuffs. Every year, there seems to be more and more food around, eh? Don't you think?

Space Cop Gaban's favourite drink, Naga Gaban

And there are even weird names for drinks, like for example,
Sirap Samarinda or maybe Soya Cincau Akasia or what ever.
But it sells. It fucking sells, actually. Damn.


So, there you are. Among the few things that you can find only during this month.
I'm sure there are more, right?
