I only eat (my other members of family do not eat dates, except my father-in-law) a few dates when breaking the fast. The remaining dates will be consumed in the next few days in Syawal.
The dates that I bought today is Mozafati dates from Islamic Republic of Iran. I bought it at Jaya Hypermart, Gadong Centerpoint for BND3.50 per 650g packaging.
The dates is sold under the label of “Desert Dates” and Benelux brand. It is imported by Benelux Flowers and Food Private Limited (Address: 245, Pandan Loop, Singapore 128428).

p/s: I do buy dates throughout the year. Once a month or a few months, I do drop by at a fruit shop in Kiulap to buy a few dollars worth of Medjul dates. I usually buy about about 5-6 dates which costs about BND2.00-BND2.50 (which is depended upon its weight and its current market price).
