"Nothing Beats Spending Time With My Wife During Ramadan"
17 May 2018STORIESBY SweetEscape

The Ramadan month is always something that Muslims around the world look forward to every year. With an entire month dedicated to removing oneself from wordly temptations, stripping things down to the basics and bringing oneself closer to the divine, there are plenty of ample opportunities for religious and spiritual reflection. In addition, there are also plenty of opportunities to spend more time with your loved ones, as businesses typically cut down on working hours throughout the month. If you're a newlyweds, this is obviously good news! Just ask musician Ritchie Ismail, who recently got hitched to TV personality Syahnaz Sadiqah, meaning that this is the first time they spend Ramadan as married couple. We spoke to Ritchie and asked for his insight on navigating Ramadan as a husband and whether there are any significant changes on his Ramadan habits now that he's a married man. Read on to find out!

"As I'm certain any newly married couples would attest, the main difference to Ramadan when you're married is definitely having a partner accompany you for your suhoor (pre-dawn meal) and iftar (breaking the fast). When I was single up until we were dating, I would usually wake up alone for both and prepare everything myself; but now that I'm married, my wife would prepare suhoor and iftar for the both of us. It's a nice and comforting feeling to have a partner with you when you're observing a religious activity.

That aside, there is not that much difference in my daily activities in comparison to the other months. But obviously there are certain specificities that you can only do during Ramadan. For instance, I would go out and get snacks for iftar. I love doing that, especially when my friends join me.

However, nothing beats spending time with my wife. Ramadan is the perfect time for that, I think. In fact, I would recommend all newlyweds to just spend more time with each other for your first Ramadan together. It allows your bond to become stronger, and at the same time, the two you can be closer to God and observe the month of Ramadan to its fullest extent. We are planning to do everything this Ramadan: suhoor, iftar, all the prayers. It enriches your soul and it teaches you the true essences of life: love, connection and God." - Ritchie Ismail

Exciting Spring Festivals Around The World
19 Mar 2019IDEASBY SweetEscape

Winter has passed, flowers are blooming, and a new season has come! Spring is celebrated extensively in most part of the world with joy and excitement, and more-often-than-not with unique and colourful festivals! Take a look at some that we've complied to inspire you for choosing your next spring-break holiday destination!

1. Songkran Water Festival (Thailand)

by Kann for SweetEscape in Bangkok

Our first spring festival is Songkran, also known as the Thai New Year. You will definitely love Songkran, because this festival is a good excuse for adults and kids alike to sprinkle, spray or even flush others with water in a kingdom-wide water fight, from the streets of Bangkok, to mountainous Chiang Mai, all the way to the sandy beaches of Phuket! The Thai people believe that water is spiritually purifying, cleansing us from any bad luck or grievances for the past year, and blessing us with renewed fortune and happiness for the coming year. This extremely fun festival is fittingly held every April, which is Thailand's hottest month of the year!

2. White House Easter Egg Roll (USA)

by Feldy for SweetEscape in Washington DC

The White House Easter Egg Roll is a timeless tradition that dates back to 1878 under President Rutherford B. Hayes, held on the White House South Lawn in Washington D.C. each Easter Monday for children aged 13 and younger and their parents, hosted by the current President and the First Lady. The Egg Roll is basically a race, where children push an egg through the grass with a long-handled spoon, while other activities such as live music and decorated Easter eggs exhibition happen around the lawn, encouraging kids and young people to live healthy and active lives.

3. Holi Festival (India)

If you plan to visit the beautiful New Delhi, Jaipur, or Agra for holiday, why not come in late March to join the explosion of colours in the Holi festival! Holi is a Hindu spring festival celebrated in India and Nepal, and is super-popular among tourists as well. Also known as the Festival of Colours, participants splash each other with multi-coloured powders, signifying the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and thanksgiving for good harvest. It is also a great occasion for locals to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. Get ready to be fully covered with colours!

4. Ching Ming Festival (China)

by Daniel for SweetEscape in Beijing

Also known as the Tomb-Sweeping Day, Ching Ming Festival has been celebrated by Chinese people for over 2500 years. During Ching Ming, celebrated every April 5th, Chinese families all over china--from big cities like Beijing, Shanghai, or Guangzhou to small vilages across the vast land--make a trip to visit the tombs of their ancestors to clean the gravesites, pray to their ancestors, and make ritual offerings such as flowers, food dishes or burning joss sticks and joss papers, showing the reference Chinese people have towards their ancestors. Other popular thing to do during Ching Ming is to fly kites in the shapes of animals or characters from Chinese opera.
