And just like that, we’re a week into Ramadan 2021! How’s everybody doing? This is our second Ramadan (and soon to be Raya) in the COVID-19 pandemic, and while it hasn’t completely gone back to the ways we once knew, it has gotten a little easier to deal with. The governments gracious allowance of the reopening of Ramadan bazaars and buffets (all with strict SOPs in place, of course) has brought some normalcy back to Ramadan celebrations across the country.
