That’s the standard greeting here during the Holy Month of Ramadan for Muslims in UAE and anywhere else around the Islamic World.
DJ, my flatmate, asked me, “Orlee, ano ba ‘yung Ramadan Kareem?”
Its like the blind leading the blind, because I, myself, don’t know what does that mean. I answered, “Ummm… Parang ganito ‘yan… Kung ako ganito… Ramadan ako… Ikaw… Ikaw! Ramadan Kareem!”
