Sunday

I woke up early, and we decided to get breakfast. We tried a brunch cafe not far from our house, only 10 minutes drive away. We were the first guests when we arrived at 7AM, right when they just opened. Not long after, another couple came in. Then another. And another. It was a full house by 7:30AM. Wow, it looks like the cafe is quite popular in the neighborhood. Why haven’t we been here before, I asked R. Let’s try the food first, he said.

I ordered a typical American breakfast menu – eggs, sausage, potatoes and toast. Only I asked for the toast to be changed to english muffins. It’s the closest I can get to crumpets here :)))) R ordered pesto bagel – it was really good, he said. I also had a cup of latte which was not bad at all, similar to what I usually make at home. But it’s Sunday, I want someone to make my coffee because I don’t wan’t to deal with the dishes :)))))

After breakfast we spent a bit of time at the beach, then went back home. I did some freelance work, R went on relaxing. He needed the rest&relaxation day after his long week.

I was too caught up with work when I realised it’s already past 4PM and we haven’t had lunch. I woke R up, we were both starving. Well, it’s the perfect time to use our Gyu-kaku points, I said. Let’s go! He said. There’s nothing better than eating good food with points, which brought down our bill to 50% less! ๐Ÿ˜€

Btw, tonight is the start of Ramadan. We will be fasting for a whole month starting tomorrow. So we went to Target to stock up on some pantry items. I haven’t finished my meal plan so I just stock up on some fruits, oatmeal and protein bars for our suhoor. We will be fasting for 15 hours this year, and this is going to be my second Ramadan in the US. I’m excited! I’m hoping for some miracles this month and I’m also looking forward to reflect and give back.

Now I’m relaxing at home. It’s been a long day. R is right beside me, watching Game of Thrones. I don’t follow the series, I just don’t get the hype. Don’t get me wrong, I tried to watch a couple of episodes… Anyway I let him have the TV every Sunday night, so here I am typing in my WordPress app while listening to Spotify with earphones on. All good, it’s been a good day, and I hope it will be a good Ramadan for us all ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Selamat puasa Ramadan Christa dan R. Semoga lancar sampai lebaran dan sehat2 terus selama berpuasa.
    Akupun kalau weekend males masak, langsung menuju warung terdekat : Ikea haha. Anggap aja makan di warung karena harga murah, makanan enak dan cuma 20 menit sepedahan dari rumah.

    1. Terima kasih Den, selamat puasa untukmu dan keluarga juga yaaa! Ah padahal rumahku juga deket Ikea, tapi makanannya nggak se-meriah makanan Ikea yang aku inget di Inggris dulu, jadi kami jarang kesana hehehehe…

  2. It is really been heartwarming reading Ramadan stories all over the world. Fasting in the fast world of US sometimes is a bit alienating ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ours in New York will be 16 hours this year, a little bit discount from 18 hours last year.
    Ramadan Mubarak Christa and R!

    1. Ramadan Mubarak to you too Dita! It’s only my second year and I can already feel how it can be alienating, but so far it’s been off to a good start! Hope it’s the same for you, kan dapet diskon 2 jam hehehehe

  3. Selamat puasa ya Ta semoga lancar dan sehat2 ya.

    Wah di sana ga ada crumpets yah? Baru tau loh๐Ÿ˜œ Dsini bertebaran di supermarket yg versi wholemeal pun ada. Aku juga ga nonton Game of Throne, just ga interested aza ga tau kenapa ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. Makasih Ria, iyaaa disini crumpets cuma dijual di toko tertentu yang jual makanan British hehehe. Tosss, akhirnya ketemu juga orang yang nggak nonton Game of Thrones! Persis, alasanku juga gitu, gak interested, gak tau kenapa ๐Ÿ˜›
