This week it'll be Ramadhan again. There will be Ramadhan bazaars all over the country and lots of restaurants and hotels will start their buffet promotions. It's all nice and well and just goes to show that thankfully, our country is still bountiful and there's always somewhere to go to have something to eat.
But hold your horses for a while! Despite all the amazing food and promotions going on in the fasting month, we should also take time to reflect on what Ramadhan is all about.

Ever since it started, Mukha always makes you feel that you are part of an artistic community. Owners Sayid and Liyana are creatives in their own right, him in design and she in event deco, hence the café is a reflection of that.
