KUALA LUMPUR, March 23 — A Malaysian TikTok user has gone viral for her digital videos of a Malay familys daily routine during Ramadan.

The user @aefleurr, who calls herself Nafisha, has charmed online users using 3-D character models and a virtual kampung house in life simulation game The Sims 4.

Her videos feature the activities of a family of seven in a kampung house during the fasting season, with some garnering over 1.4 million views.

The videos show the early morning sahur cooking, buying food at the bazaar, the family breaking fast at the dinner table and finally the tarawih (night prayers) at the mosque.

Her in-game models are well detailed, accurately capturing the baju Melayu, baju kurung and baju telekung (prayer robe).

Even the dishes served at the dinner table are spot-on with murtabak, satay, various assorted kuih and air sirap to wash it all down.

Online users have praised Nafisha’s videos for invoking a sense of nostalgia of their younger days staying in their own hometowns.

I feel sad spending Ramadan alone at my own place. This makes me miss my family,” a commenter wrote.

I really can feel the vibe from the house, the clothes and the interior decorations. You’re really good!” another user shared.

I can’t wait to buka puasa after seeing this,” one user joked.
