This is my own version of green scarfs, muslimah version because I'd prefer to address them as hijabs - which cover my head.
Well, I think people who are following my Instagram know about my little business on shawls last summer break. I was selling satin shawls from Egypt.
Ameerul definitely knows about this.
And my favourite of all is this emerald green colour which actually had caught many attentions from my friends. Also among those who had higher orders too at the particular time!
What happened was, upon my departure back to Egypt, Ameerul handed me this shopping paper bag with something in it. I was curious, of course. I looked into the bag to find a piece of green shawl covered in a plastic.
Emerald green! Wow, my favourite!
But err, it was satin.
I had so many questions in my head at that time.
"Did he know that I've already owned one shawl in emerald green?"
"Did he know it is also a satin material like this?"
"Has he ever seen me in emerald green satin shawl before?"
"Okay, when did he buy this? He didn't tell me where he went!"
"Oh, wait, having two satin shawls in emerald green isn't a bad idea after all"
Okay, girls are complicated hahaha. Even though you knew you only had only a few hours left to spend your precious time together before you took off.
Of course, I said thank you and I was grateful. He said this one is different because this shawl has a curved end. (He meant a half moon shawl - mind his lack vocabulary in hijab-ness dictionary hahaha).
My satin shawl
His satin shawl
That's how it goes whenever each of us give each other a present. Our taste is so different in everything. Last year, he gave me a body lotion with sakura flower scent. I liked it, but if he could had give me softer scent then it would be really reallyyyyyy nicer hahaha. When he gave me a sling bag, but I'd never wore it hahaha sorry but he insisted it was a beautiful bag - which I stared at the bag for so long to find the beautiful side of the bag hmmm still couldn't find the beauty of that.
When I gifted him a Tshirt, he said he liked it and so gonna wear it. Yes, he wore it at night! During bedtime! God, that was expensive omg how dare you! I gave him a watch, he said, "This is so my grandpa's taste".
I didn't know that your grandpa has such swag taste, huh?
