The atmosphere of Ramadan or the fasting month has been with us for several weeks now. Every day for a month, all Muslims deepen their spiritual growth whilst waiting for the sunset. When the mosque’s drum is hit, that means we can break the fast. It's not uncommon for some people to still be travelling at that time. For those of you who like to take public transportation such as Transjakarta and MRT Jakarta, you can still break your fast on time! Do you know what the rules are?
