Malay traditional costume for woman, Ramadan Bazaar, Geylang Serai, Singapore

These bazaars located in Geylang Serai. It is a yearly event for a month and you can feel the festive mood. All walks of life will come here to buy things that they need and also many food stall selling many kind of delicacies from eastern to western cuisine. I really enjoyed being here every year. This is the place I can meet my ex school mates and also friends that I seldom see in my every day life. Although we cannot chit-chat to catch up because there are so many people there but we can always say Hello and shaking hands. Ramadan is a time when Muslims are supposed to slow down from their worldly affairs and focus in self reformation, spiritual cleansing and enlightenment and establish the link between the God almighty and themselves by prayer, supplication, charity and showing good deeds, kindness and helping others.

 

Since it is a festival of giving and sharing, Muslims prepare special foods and buy gifts for their family and friends and for giving to the poor and needy who cannot afford it.

It is a festival time where Muslims buy new clothes, shoes, jewelry, other items of need, prepare special foods, invite people for meal and snacks commemorating the breaking of fast.

 

The most prominent event of this month is the daytime fasting practiced by most observant Muslims. Every day during the month of Ramadan, Muslims around the world get up before dawn to eat and they break their fast when the fourth prayer of the day, Maghrib (sunset) is due. During Ramadan, Muslims are also expected to put more effort into following the teaching of Islam as well refraining from lying, stealing, anger, envy, greed, lust, sarcastic retorts, backbiting and gossip. Purity of both thought and action is important. It also allows Muslims to practice self-discipline, sacrifice, as well as sympathy for those who are less fortunate, intending to make Muslims more generous and charitable.

In the evening is the best part in this bazaar. As you can see from the photos, it is very colorful and very joyful. People are every where, seller are shouting, buyer are bargaining and if you not buying anything, you will experience the moment of being there. So if you like to see all that happen here come down during Ramadan month and you can see for yourself. There are about 2 big bazaars and 2 small bazaars. All this end at the end of Ramadan when the Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid Mubarak or Idil Fitri, a day of joy and celebration. Come! Come join the fun and Enjoy! J ;-p
