“What I like most in Ramadan is the increase in orders of flowers from our shop,” said Indones Rocios Placibe, a florist. “We are very busy, especially during the first week of Ramadan, as I get too many orders from individuals and companies. Business is great! In the second week of Ramadan, we have lots of orders from schools and people celebrating girgian. Also, work timings have been shortened – this means more time for myself and other extracurricular activities that I can do legally.”
