This Father is Worth Celebrating About

Posted on: No Comments

Rowden Go Pangcoga is already engaged to his girlfriend Leizel May with a wedding set for July 8, his 30th birthday. However, he was diagnosed with a progressive form of stage 4 liver cancer late last month. His last wish is to be married to his love. With only 48 hours to prepare, the wedding ceremony was held at the hospital where bedridden Rowden was admitted. He died only 10 hours after the matrimonial rights was held and is survived by his wife, their 2-year old daughter Zakiah Rowzel, his mother Lorelei, and 2 brothers Hasset and Hisham.

Cutting Board Collection for Ramadan and other Feasts

Posted on: No Comments

Although Ramadan is mostly about fasting and meditation, many look forward to Iftar or the feast after sunset where family members, relatives, and friends gather after a whole day of fasting. The anticipation is even greater for the most abundant feast of the entire season,  Eid-al-Fitr, which culminates Ramadan after a month.

In relation to that, we present our cutting board collection for women and even men who will be preparing a festive meal for Ramadan as well as other festivities.

We are one with our Islamic brothers and sisters who will be observing the Ramadan starting on the last week of June 2014. We understand that this is a solemn observation where everyone will be fasting and praying.

What is Ramadam? 

For everyone who are not familiar with Ramadam or Ramadan, here are key points:

  • it’s a month long observation for Moslem members which occurs during the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar which begins when the crescent new moon appears
  • fasting and praying is observed but only during daylight; Suhoor or the meal before dawn is allowed and then followed by Iftar or the meal after sunset where family members and their relatives gather to feast most especially during the culmination of the season after a month called Eid-al-Fitr
  • not everyone needs to participate; exemptions include children and older people as well as those who are travelling, with illness, and women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, and with menstruation
  • it’s not limited to fasting and praying; abstinence from sex as well as any type of wrongdoing are also expected, disputes settled, family ties strengthened, charity observed, and Islamic teaching re-evaluated
  • prayers and recitation of Quran is observed by leaders at mosques

Going back to one of the rituals of Ramadan which is fasting, here are water bottles you can personalize and bring to work or school in order to not be famished. Fill it with water or juice drinks to quench your thirst during this holy season.

Each water bottle varies in terms of design, style, material used, amount of liquid it can accommodate, price, color, and so much more. But every bottle can personalized with your own theme, image or picture, and text. You can print encouraging texts or quotes such as “Ramadan Mubarak” or “Ramadan Kareem” to remind yourself of the reason for this season in Islam.
