It is Ramadan again, the month of fasting. Each year it gets earlier and earlier because the Islamic calendar is shorter than the western one. This year it is a very, very hot one for everyone here…. no one is allowed to eat or drink in public during the day…. so everyone hangs out for the breaking of fast, or the “iftar” meal.
Like last year, DH’s work put on an Iftar for all the employees. It was at the same venue, but unlike last year the sky was not blue… in fact we could hardly see the tower until we were close by because of a big dust storm:
Last year you can see the sky was much clearer!
Inside it was pretty similar, except they had some strange lighting which has made the photos look a little weird!
Another big ice sculpture like last year… and food, food and more food…. I love the way some of it was presented… the seafood on ice:
With smaller (compared to the big one in the middle of the hall!) ice sculptures in the background:
This is how they served the parmesan cheese at the “Italian Station”:
The deserts looked pretty good too:
Oh, and the chocolate fountain was very popular with kids young and old!
We ate our fill… and a little extra… and now I think we need to fast tomorrow to make up for it, lol! Driving home at 8pm, we noticed the temperature was 43C….. just a little warm still!!
