here goes the story. annoyed with HSBC, we went pusing2 kat MG road and masuk dis one shop owned by indian muslim. sambil tgk2 barang2 kat kedai ni, mcm2 la the owner tanye.
"so where are you from?", tanye owner tersebut.
"we're from malaysia"
"what are u doing here?"
"we're studying here"
"ohh, so what's ur name?"
"i'm bazilah", kate baz dengan yakin sekali.
"zahirah", saye juge tak kurang yakinnye.
"ohhh! are u muslim??"
"yes yes we are!"
"ohh, then why are u wearing like this? you're supposed to cover up ur head etc etc. back in kashmir, muslim girls are wearing etc etc etc", sambil meneliti pakaian kami.
maka kami hanya mampu tersenyum.
"sooo, u're away from ur hometown, it looks like u're having fun wearing like this ehh?", sambung owner berkenaan.
"no no. we also wear like this back in malaysia", begitulah kata2 baz.
"do you pray everyday?home many times a day do u pray?",owner berkenaan mahu pula menguji knowledge kami.
"5 times a day!of course we pray!", turn saye pulak utk berkate2.
"no no i don't think so. where did u pray?wearing like this?", okay. that's very cynical.
"we prayed already. at home!", saye jawab lagi.
"don't lie! it's very bad okay!",kata owner itu dgn muke serious.
"nope we don't!okay, seee u again!", maka kami pon cpt2 keluar dari kedai itu.
adus. gile rase tertampar siotttt! after a few steps, kitorg gelak2 cam org gile. bukan nk make fun of the owner. tp gelak kat diri sendiri sbb rase cam malu gile kot? adus. ok la, the owner was right. muslim girls should wear this and that. maka, saye pon mule tertanye (actually i ask this question to myself every single day) bile la aku nk pakai tudung nie? adus. niat mmg dh ade. tunggu nak buat jer. tatau la asal susah sgt. setan byk sgt kot?
to the shop owner, thanks for the reminder. wpon ayat kau bole tahan kasar, tapi mmg btul pon, takkan aku nk marah kot? kepade diri sendiri, kau pikir la sendiri.
sekian terima kasih
