Veiled?

Been a cat nurse this hols makes me deprived of a chance of doing what I planned to do. I missed out the GW action, 2 weeks worth mind u, I missed out the beaches action, the hanging around malls action and yeah, finishing the Californication download. Well, staying in the hostel looking after the ever naughty cats (including the injured Wunan) gives me to go out for about 5 hours max. Thus I use it to browse around malls, watching and studying people, eating while I'm at it.

Browsing, watching and studying people in Malaysia makes me discover more about the reason why do I prefer free-haired girls. Just a warning. The following comments is quite sensitive so, if u want to, do stop reading this.

This article I read makes me wonder if the writer is too feminist. If it's to me, it's the same to the Malaysian malay women of this generation. Not wanting to go deeper into that, for now, as if u want to see it, see it from a guy's point of view. I mean, it's hard to find the 'Last-Malay-Lady' type of girl nowadays.

Anyway, what I want to talk about is of Muslim Malay women that wears headscarf. I will focus on those who are of teenagers and early adulthood. For me, the purity and the true meaning of the head scarves had been raped by these women. Based from my experience, my observation and my informal study, girls aged from about 18 to 22 usually would be a good example. I use the word 'raped' as to show how bad the situation is. For example, a Muslim girl, wearing head scarf, went to the cinema with her boyfriend to catch a flick or two, would have a high percentage of ending up making out with the guy, usually at the back row. Most of us are well aware of these happenings. And they would do it in their house, given there's no other people around. And again, if you wear a head scarf and at the same time wearing a tight shirt and jeans or pants (which later invite people to caress your butt), short sleeved, cleavage showing and yeah no socks, please stop and look into a mirror and question yourself.

I'm not a good Muslim but I do know that women should cover their body but their face and palm. And if u wear headscarf, please do respect it. Do respect what it symbolizes. Do not be a hypocrite. And do take a look at how you talk. Is it of a slutty way? Or according to what the head scarf symbolizes. IF you wear head scarf and at the same time doing some of the things above, I recommend you to take it off. Be a free haired girl. At least they are not hypocrite. At least in a way, they respect what the head scarf symbolizes. And with that I respect them more. And it surprises me to see that there's more free haired girls that are good natured and well mannered than those that wears head scarves. Life is full of surprises eh?

I'm not a good Muslim and I have my reasons. But it's heartbreaking to see these people as they seem to be not knowing of what they want.

p/s: I prefer free-haired girls coz I know I could see who they are right away, about 70% at least.

I guess in this world, nobody is perfect...
Men have become lazy & expect to have things handed to them while women want to be attractive & at the same time keep to religious laws.

I do agree that "free-hair" women are more honest & accepting of others...
But I have also met women who "cover-hair" women who are true to themselves, good natured & attractive!

I guess this post hits out on hypocrites...
Nas loves women too much that he doesn't want them to continue lying to themselves & other people any longer...
And me loves Nas...

Yes u got my point. This is for those hypocrites that maybe not realized that they are one. And yes, there are those who wear head scarves that is good natured, true to themselves and attractive. But the ratio and percentage of them compared to those that are free-haired is lower.

Maybe these hypocrites only wear headscarves not because of wanting to keep to religious law, but the cultural pressure from the community and their parents.

And as a side note, most Malay girls would want a husband that could lead them in these religious aspect. But don't you think that as a marriage couple, a husband and a wife should learn and explore religion together? And learn and improve themselves together?

Marriage can work if both sides are willing to give...
But sometimes this is not the case...
Sometimes escape is the easiest way...

Communication is important...
But communication breakdown is very easily caused...

We are young...
We can be idealistic...
But once we get our hands dirty...
Will we be just as willing to do the right thing?

Sigh...
Man + Woman = very complicated...

Men + Women = complicated.
But those complications is what makes the world goes around.

I still prefer thinking love makes the world go round...
hehehe~~

Gives me more hope to live on...
Yet I do know that with every turn there is a little complication to resolve...
I'll have to do it with love then...
haha~~
