Lady: Hi. I like your headscarf. It’s pretty.
Me: Thank you. I bought it from Malaysia.
Lady: In your culture, do you have to put on headscarf all the time?
[Alamak! Sesi soal menyoal mendebarkan dah bermula!]
Me: Well, it’s not a culture thing. In our religion, we have to put on headscarf in the public. I mean in front of men. But it’s okay with the ladies.
Lady: What happens if you don’t put it on?
[Panik attack. Kang cakap berdosa atau aurat, tak faham pula minah salleh ni]
Me: Mmm…we believe that our beauty is just for the husband.
Lady: Ooo…
