It’s the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, which means it’s Ramadan. No eating, drinking or intimacy with partners in daylight hours (if you’re Muslim), but much laughter and feasting (and I assume intimacy) when the sun does down.

Woven “ketupat” are a common decoration. Real ketupat are woven with palm leaf and hold rice and the symbolism is that they’re often eaten at the feast that ends Ramadan.
