LCE = Life Changing Experience

Last Wednesday and Thursday, I went to Madrasah Wak Tanjong Al-Islamiah. Originally, my purpose was to accompany Val and pon sch =p but now..I’m so glad, cuz I got to know more friends and felt welcome despite the difference in culture. Before that, the ONLY contact I had with Malay Muslims was being invited to my father’s ex-worker’s home every Hari Raya (ooo the goodies and curry xD), hearing evening prayers at the void deck of my grandmother’s flat in Ghim Moh, and borrowing clothes from my corner neighbour for Racial Harmony Day. Yep..

The first impression of MWTI was like a fortress isolated from the outside world, the white tudungs, black songkoks and purple uniform looked very formal. The prayers were sung in Arabic (for about 5 minutes?) and they didn’t sing the national anthem or recite the Pledge! Hmm.. But their shy and studious image was broken when we gathered in the lecture theatre.

(to be continued..zzz)
