Fasting Experience & Ramadhan Buffet @ Hilton KL

In this blogging πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’»πŸ“, SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» would like to share her recent 2️⃣-day personal fasting experiences with her non-Muslims friends πŸ‘«πŸ‘­πŸ‘¬ & a break fast feast 🍽🍴at Hilton KL 🏒 Ramadhan πŸ’š buffet πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ˜‹

Why this fasting❓⁉️

Hmm…All unplanned, it just happened with a sudden thoughtβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜†

She was having a lunch 🍽🍴catch up πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘€πŸ‘₯ recently with some of her old friendsπŸ‘­πŸ‘­πŸ‘­, then were chit chatting πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘₯πŸ‘₯ about the Ramadhan πŸ’š month πŸ˜€

Suddenly she popped a question ❓”Anyone of you have tried fasting in any ways❓⁉️”


1️⃣ of her friend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ said “Yes βœ… , she has tried & it’s doableπŸ™‚”

Another of her friend πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ said “I did βœ… a juiceπŸ₯€πŸΉdetox fasting before”

Quite a fun & juicy conversation πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘₯πŸ‘₯ around the fasting topic that afternoon πŸ”† (all just because of her question❓askedπŸ˜‰)

Guess what❓⁉️

At the end of the lunch🍽🍴, all agreed for a 2️⃣-day fasting on 28 May & 31 May to experiencing it, particularly for those 1️⃣st timer like SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ»

Then, all will meet up for a Ramadhan πŸ’š buffet dinner 🍽🍴to break fast together gather πŸ˜‹πŸ€€Yeahβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜ƒ

Amazing‼️ Everyone πŸ‘­πŸ‘­πŸ‘­ inβ€ΌοΈβœ… Wowβ€ΌοΈπŸ˜²

Why Hilton KLπŸ’β“β‰οΈ

Just because we need a convenience & LRT πŸš‡ accessible hotel 🏒 for a great feast πŸ½πŸ΄πŸ˜‹πŸ€€Ha…Ha…πŸ€£πŸ˜†

Hmm…Missed ❌ the flash deal πŸ’± though…😌

There were 3️⃣ fasting options for choice as discussed & agreed βœ… from the lunch 🍽🍴

Option 1️⃣: Water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ fasting/ water πŸ’¦πŸ’§ cleanse ~ Go without ❌ food🍽🍴, but βœ…πŸ’¦πŸ’§plain water is permissible. In general, tea πŸƒπŸ΅ & black coffee β˜•οΈ may be consumed

Option 2️⃣: Half day fasting (at least 4️⃣ hours) ~ Go without food ❌🍽🍴& plain water βŒπŸ’¦πŸ’§

Option 3️⃣: Full fast βŒπŸ½πŸ΄πŸ’¦πŸ’§(with an option to sip some water βœ…πŸ’¦ if really can’t go on)

So, what’s fasting❓⁉️

In layman explanation, it means to abstain from food & water βŒπŸ½πŸ΄πŸ’¦πŸ’§ for a specific time frameπŸ•• In the past, more for spiritual religious fasting especially annual Ramadhan πŸ’š month for Muslims πŸ•Œ

However, as time passed, fasting is now evolving as a change of diet 🍽🍴pattern for many health conscious practitioners ☺️

How to fast❓⁉️

1️⃣st, select a type of fast you would like to experience
2️⃣nd, set some goals to achieve
3️⃣rd, plan your food menu
Lastly, observe & understand your body during the fasting

After some research reading πŸ“– , she found out some interesting facts about fasting

– Β Fasting as an excellent πŸ‘πŸ» tool for weight loss

SiennyLovesDrawing πŸ‘©πŸ» has went for Option 1️⃣ for her 2️⃣-day 1️⃣st fasting experience. Initially, she wanted to try the Option 3️⃣ i.e. full fast❌🍽🍴with sips of water πŸ’¦πŸ’§However, from her observation, her body needs water πŸ’¦πŸ’§especially her art πŸŽ¨πŸ–Œ teaching πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ« career required lots of mouth πŸ‘„ & throat exercise daily πŸ—£πŸ‘₯πŸ‘₯πŸ‘₯ Hence, she didn’t force her body & then changed to Option 1️⃣ i.e. water πŸ’¦πŸ’§fasting βœ…

Day1️⃣ she didn’t plan her food 🍽🍴menu well enough. She was just having 4️⃣ slices of whole gains bread 🍞 & a glass of oat with Anlene powdered milk πŸ₯› Yeah‼️ That’s all as her Sahur equivalent meal 😲πŸ€ͺ

Her friend asked “So, your dinner Day 1️⃣ extremely deliciousπŸ˜‹β“β‰οΈ”

She doesn’t feel that way, it was just a mixed rice πŸ› packed by her parents πŸ‘΄πŸ»πŸ‘΅πŸ» & frankly just a normal meal with normal taste as usual 😊

She missed most during her fasting ~ her morningπŸ”…coffee β˜•οΈ

Day 2️⃣ much easy going βœ… for her, perhaps she has adjusting well from Day 1️⃣ She planned a better breakfast πŸ½β˜•οΈ too. She was having her favourite ❀️ breakfast choice i.e. cream crackers with chocolate 🍫 jam & a glass of oat with Anlene powdered milk πŸ₯› Honestly, the crackers served much better as bread 🍞 (compared to Day 1️⃣) to keep her full though βœŒπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

Generally, she was fine during the fasting, except Day 1️⃣ she observed her body can’t go ❌without water πŸ’¦πŸ’§constantly every 2️⃣ hours. It means she does drink lots of water πŸ’¦πŸ’§daily ya

Not ❌ really exhausted/ tired πŸ˜“πŸ˜‘ throughout/ even when the fasting ends in the evening πŸ™

Hmm…She found herself tough in certain timing aka slight craving for foods 🍽🍴due to her meals & snacking breaks at 10am, 12.30pm, 3pm, 7.30pm etc.πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Yeah‼️ A nice 2️⃣-day fasting experience completed. Her friends & herself πŸ‘©πŸ»πŸ‘­πŸ‘­πŸ‘­really enjoyed the Jom Makan πŸ’š Kenduri-Kendara feast 🍽🍴at Vasco’s in Hilton KL🏒 The wide varieties of local dishes from almost all states in West Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ are served. A great πŸ‘πŸ» choice madeβœŒπŸ»πŸ˜ƒ
