Welcoming the month of Ramadhan

It is that time of the year in the Islamic calendar, that muslims all over the world would hold fast in the day time for a whole month (which could be 29 or 30 days).

The first thing to do before entering Ramadhan would actually be to determine whether or not it is here. To determine the arrival of Ramadhan is by sighting the new moon (or hilal in Arabic). Once the new moon is sighted then, the next day would be the first day of Ramadhan. So, on Friday, the 20th, I went up Port Hills and setup my gears in preparation for the sightings.

While waiting for the new moon to appear, I took some sceneries of the vista in front of me. One of the few that I really like.

At around 6pm, my friend Haneff, spotted the new moon. So, we took some photos of the new moon as proof.
