It's 5 am and I am still munching and savouring the last minutes snacks before the Imsak creeps in. I'm at the KFC outlet somewhere in the outskirt of Kota Bharu. The Sahur seems to be the 'must eat' time for the kids. They are getting sick of waking up as early as 4.30 and having to eat the same thing over and over again.That is why I bring them here just to spice up the 'Sahur' moments. We are not alone, there are quite a number of people here now..People like me, dragging their heavy eyelids kids along and end up eating more than they should because the kids choose to sleep at the table rather than enjoying the suppose to be the 'Finger licking good' chicken. Yesterday we were at the Mamak Restaurant and the Roti Canai proves to be an eye opener...So kids, better hurry up coz mummy is not going to be here all morning. Tell me, where and what shall we eat for the next 7 more Sahurs? I'm totaly blank. Remember those old days when we were young, our parents used to wake us up for Sahur and the choice that we had were eating whatever was on the table or starved till the breaking of fast. Bet that was easier. Children today are too pampered and it is us the parents that mould them to be that way and should take the blame...So why grumble???
