(The 7th Liwa Date Festival is going to run from 12th to 21st of July)
It’s impossible to miss the sight of ripening date fruit in Abu Dhabi nowadays. It’s interesting how nature signals what’s going to happen next. Remember the days when people would depend on the aura of clouds, behaviour of animals, how starry is the starry, starry night, and other “metrics” to tell the weather and what is yet to come?
Yes, that means Ramadan is near.
This is my entry to Photo Cache’s blog anniversary giveaway.

I’m not really fond of dates (unless baked into a cake! hehe). I also had no idea the tree looked like that. cool 🙂
so that’s what the fruit looks like before they are dried. parang bunga ng nyog ang itsura nya.
nice entry for the contest.
kakatuwa kasi ever since na pumunta tatay ko sa saudi naging paborito na niya ang dates.
thank you for playing along.
parang hindi pa yata ako nakatikim ng dates….
ang bilis naman…ramadan na naman pala!
bakit sa pinas wala akong date
buti dito meron akong dates….:)
.. i see some date trees too that bears fruits near where i work. hitik yung bunga pero pinababayaan lang nila.
Same here. Pero karamihan covered ng net yung fruits.
yes, ramadan is coming and we’re looking forward to our weeklong-paid vacation leave after that fasting season.
dates? i prefer prunes.
Dati, before the climate change, a big sandstorm indicates the coming of winter or summer. Ngayon lingo-lingo nalang may sandstorm and Ramadan is right smack in the middle of the hot season.
Wala sanang may mahilo sa mag aayuno, inshaallah.
isa sa mga inaabangan ng mga kamag anak ang dates pag uwi ko dito sa pinas at palaging ubos ito sa isang lingo lang
paboritong pasalubong ng mga kamag anak ang dates everytime na uuwi ako
doon po sa amin
hello, ang husay naman nito – short and sweet. the brief narrative really sets the mood of the season… like ko po ito. 🙂

And so the long holiday! 🙂 nice!
