Apparently i'm back from a sleepover at my sister-through-religion, kak sarah's house. She's a cambodian but being brought up at kota bharu kelantan, she has the capacity to talk in 3 different languages. She speaks cambodia n malay frequently, and a lil bit of french. The whole afternoon smalam, i went perfume and face mask hunting at every pharmacies n perfume shops that i could think of here in Chateauroux,i.e Marionnette and Nobé but to no avail. Sorry lah farah n kak pet!! Seriously dunno where else to find. To whomever yg tau camne nk carik Rémy Laure's masque noire and lotion jeunesse moisturizing spray please do contact me cayh!! Then at about 4.15 pm i took bus no 5 direction vers belle étoile kerna i've fixed a lunch rendez-vous wit kak sarah but i was a lil bit late. She told me to stay for dinner lah plak..can't resist the godaan of her cambodia speciality so i decided to stay after all. Borak punye borak punye borak, 5 hours later all 5 of us were sitting at the dining table waiting for the meal to be served. We ate sambal sotong and chicken soup cambodia style. Nyumm nyumm..

Later dat night her sister-in-law,karima,who's a nigerian..woaaa!!tis family really is a multi-nationality family living happily in the middle of nowhere(for me chateauroux ialah tempat paling terceruk di duniee help)came to invite me and sarah's family for a 10pm!!! Aku suda ngantuk due to lack of sleep the day b4 but as soon as we arrived at karima's,i just can't stop myself from munching. Dengan chocolate cakenyer, merguez and steak yg telah dibakar wit lurve by the husbands,chips,coke 5-6 cawann..sumpah rase cam ular sawe yg baru dpt seko kambing. This is what i like the most about being abroad, oleh kerna muslim community kat cni sgt kecik, we have the chance 2 be more rapat with each other. We can't deny of having problems wit the french government and whatnot, mais grace à ceux-ci qu'on devient plus fort que tout.

The wearing of hijab in France has been a very controversial issue since 1989. The debate essentially concerns whether Muslim girls who choose to wear hijab may do so in state schools. A secondary issue is how to protect the free choice and other rights of young Muslim women who do not want the veil, but who may face strong pressure from families or traditionalist.

history of how it started
  • In October 1989, three Muslim schoolgirls wearing the Islamic headscarf were expelled from the collège Gabriel-Havez in Creil (north of Paris).
  • In January 1990, three schoolgirls were expelled from the collège Pasteur in Noyon, north of Paris. The parents of one expelled schoolgirl filed a defamation action against the principal of the collège Gabriel-Havez in Creil. As a result, the teachers of a collège in Nantua (eastern part of France, just to the west of Geneva, Switzerland) went on strike to protest the wearing of the Islamic headscarf in school.
  • In October, some students demonstrated at the lycée St. Exupery in Mantes-La-Jolie (northwest of Paris) to support the freedom to wear Islamic headscarves in school. In November, approximately 24 veiled schoolgirls were expelled from the lycée St. Exupery in Mantes-la-Jolie and the lycée Faidherbe in the city of Lille.
In December 2003 President Chirac decided that the law should prohibit the wearing of visible religious signs in schools, according to laicité requirements. The law was approved by parliament in March of 2004 . Items prohibited by this law include Muslim hijabs, Jewish yarmulke or large Christian crosses. It is still be permissible to wear discreet symbols of faith such as small crosses. The fact that small Christian crosses are allowed is seen by some as evidence that the aim of the law was against Muslims only.

HehE,so in the end i slept over at sarah's. Fun experience though. My first time barbecuing the french way!!!
