Tomorrow, the Muslims in Malaysia begin fasting for the month of Ramadhan. There are some non-Muslims who are also fasting along, for various personal reasons.
This got me thinking.
I’m one of those people who has an early dinner. My last meal is usually before sunset, around 6pm. Then, I typically skip breakfast and my first meal of the day is usually lunch at about noon. So, I don’t eat for around 18 hours.
Of course, I spend part of this asleep – typically just 6 hours each day. That means I fast for about 12 hours a day, each day of the year. Just in reverse.
From dusk till dawn (often noon).
