With the arrival of the holy month of Ramadhan we start fasting tomorrow. The prospect of thirty days of a dawn-to-dusk fast has a powerful way of focusing the mind, simply on the level of figuring out what time to get up in the morning to prepare for the rigours of the day ahead. Of course, most of the real preparation and organising of affairs falls to Noi, an area in which she shows supreme expertise.

Since this is the first time we've fasted at Maison KL, pictured above, she's been mindful of making sure we have the wherewithal to ensure as smooth a passage as possible. We bought a microwave oven this evening to that effect, remarkably the first we've ever had to actually purchase for ourselves. In itself that suggests how blessed we've been over the years.

Now listening to Dylan's Shadows in the Night. Further blessings.

Selamat berpuasa, to those striving for the richest blessings of all.
