My hubby has told us the day before 1st Ramadhan that we shouldn't buy any food from Ramadhan Bazaar this year. Based on our experience last year, it's really worth to buy the food since the price here (in Kelana Jaya) is becoming more expensive. Apart from that, some food get spoilt quickly and some are not as tasty as they look.
Thus, yesterday we cooked some simple food and made some simple sweet delicacies. The good thing was we didn't waste any food at all! Come to think of it, we are so used to not buying food during Ramadhan because when we were in New Zealand, there was no Bazaar selling any ready made food during Ramadhan. The only time for us to feast our eyes and mouth was during Iftar with our Muslim friends either organized by some families, our Waikato University Malaysian Association or The Muslim Association in Waikato University.
I reckon it's not hard to not buying ready made food if we remind ourselves the true meaning of fasting. Fasting doesn't mean that we don't eat and drink for the whole day and then during the Iftar we greedily eat and drink as much as we can.
How's the Ramadhan Bazaar in your place? Have you noticed the difference in terms of the price?
