OUT OF DA COCOON.....

Noni & aku..otw nak p South Bank..

I remembered when one of my Indian friend asked me; “Have u made many friends here?”…
It took me a few seconds to respond. What I realized was that I was to preoccupied with my Malay friends. We sat in lecture theatre together an even my partners for Bio project and lab were also Malays. Don’t forget the tutorials, I still sit with my Malay friends.
And when language barrier issue is raised, everyone come up with their own smart excuses. Hey, what happen to us guys?? Do we remember the purpose of our sponsor sending us to study here. It involved Malaysians money through tax that is levied on them. Let me tell u, the sponsors(MARA.JPA,FELDA, PETRONAS, PNB, bla3) want us to develop our social skills especially communication. They put astounding hope on us, in which our experiences that we gain here can be brought back for the sake of our country.
But it is totally disappointing when some of the Malays decide to mingle with their type only. AND then u want to blame ur Malay frens that mingle with others, thinking that she/he is leaving u. Hey, sedar la diri!!!! I’m not ur mother!!! Nak berkepit ng ko je!!!! Den u r thinking the mat n minah salleh r isolating u.. it’s not bcoz they r alienating u, instead it’s bcoz u r creating a thick layer around urselves lol!!! That is why it’s hard for them to approach u..
This is OZ, a country that has high diversity of people, coming from different backgrounds. Mix with them PLIZ!!! I don’t ask u to tune in into their lifestyle but learn their culture, so that they can accept u despite who u are.
I have many non-Muslims friends but they have no prejudice 2wards me. It depends to the way we behave urselves…. Sometimes they r asking about my religion, y I’m practicing hijab.. n the most wonderful moment is when my Korean friend decide 2 wear hijab 2 avoid disturbance from strangers.. I jus happy as long as she is happy..
Can u imagine what will happen if we r being enveloped in safety zone by neglecting other non-Malay people…how can misunderstanding about Islam can b erased.. I remember a quote from al-Quran that mentions God create us with different types of people so that we can make friends with each other. But I alredi forgot the verses..
My frens, it’s not that I hate u..it’s not that I’m forgetting u guys.. we still have conversation with each other.. But sometimes, I wanna u 2 remember that there r many people besides Malays in this world.
If u r disagree wif me, it’s olrite bcoz we hv our own opinion rite?? But still, I WANNA GO OUT FROM THIS COCOON!!!

Wah2.. tul2..

kami kat cni yg beratus-ratus foreigner pun sama situasiny... diorg x penah cuba nk blaja budaya kita n x penah blaja mhormati budaya kita... malah mengejek... manakala dari kaca mata kita pelajar malaysia, pelajar afrika yg mundur dan stereotaip, budak mesir yg kurg ajar, sombong n x bertamadun n so on.. mgkin persepsi yg sama terhadap pljr msia di sana.. huhu
