4 Ways to Spend Ramadan During Circuit Breaker

 

Ramadan during the Circuit Breaker is different but does not mean it should be less meaningful. Here are some ways to keep the meaning of Ramadan alive with your family and friends.

 

1. #Supportlocal through online Ramadan bazaar stores

The annual Ramadan bazaars may be cancelled but you can still support these businesses by ordering from them online! Some of these stalls include:

  • – Charkoi (youtiao manis): Think youtiao but with an extra flair from toppings such as nutella, oreo, spicy tuna mayo and chicken floss. Order here
  • – Broti (iced tea): In the mood for some milk tea? There’s the OG Thai milk tea, green milk tea and earl grey milk tea! Order here
  • – Beef Bro (mentaiko beef cubes): Besides their signature beef cube and mentaiko dish, mentaiko pasta, bento sets and truffle fries are also available for delivery till 2 am! Order here

 

If you’re looking for more than just food, here are 2 virtual bazaars for you to browse around: 

 

2. Break fast virtually with your friends and extended family 

Video call your loved ones through Whatsapp, ZOOM or Skype! And if you want to take it up a notch, play a trivia game or a game of pictionary with them on Houseparty.

 

3. Get your halal groceries online and deliver your home-cooked food to the doorstep of your loved ones
