Haruka Ramadan Diary
This year’s Ramadan is Haruka Nakagawa’s first experience in spending the days with her Muslim friends. She is also experiencing the ways of how to be tolerant to the fasting members. In fact, she ended up fasting along with the members although her main motivation is not to serve.
“Fasting is like a diet. I do Suhoor at 4AM and then sleep. 6PM, I break the fast,” said Haruka in a Breaking Fast event with JKT48 Fans in Kemang. Coincidentally, she’s in the middle of her diet schedule. So, Haruka doesn’t mind to hold on to her thirst and hunger.
She fell in love more with fasting due to the warm atmosphere it produce. For an example, when she breaks the fast together with the fans, she admitted that it was filled with lots of fun.
“This is my first time, I’m so happy. But I kinda ashamed of myself since I ate a lot (laugh),” said Haruka, in her increasingly fluent Indonesian.
There’s another motivation for her diet, wrapped up in the fast. It being her position as a center in the newest JKT48 single, which will be released in August. She once remarked via her Twitter, that she doesn’t want to look fat during the dance numbers of “Koisuru Fortune Cookie”.
