"So you never had sex? You're a virgin?"
Aku tendang kang minah bongok ni! "My choice."
"Don't you have the desire? You know... for sex? Love? How can you live without men?"
Adeh! Aku banyak kerja la minah. Daripada ak layan kau kan lebih elok aku habiskan kerja-kerja ni semua. Malas betul nak jawab. "Everybody have desire, even animals but we are confined to our religion. No sexual intercourse nor extramarital sex allowed."
"So, if you get married you must choose a muslim man?"
"Why? Why can't you marry any man from any belief? Why must Muslim marry a muslim."
Alah, banyak tanyalah pulak. Otak dah la lembab hari ni.. hmm.. apa nak jawab??
"Oh I want it halal!"
"hahaha.. like halal meat?"
"You're saying Muslim men are like halal chickens or meat?"
"I don't understand."
"To process a halal meat, the animal must be slaughtered properly by a Muslim. The knife used for slaughtering must be very sharp, so the process would be smooth and certain nerves cut completely. The severe neck cause blood to drain from the body quickly. Blood cause uric acid. "
"I still don't get it."
"I know. I just want to say that a Muslim man who practice their faith is like halal meat. They are clean. That's all. You don't wanna eat contaminated meat don't you?"
"You're not making sense, you know."
"I know." Mengeluh. "My choice."
Tadi masa rehat.
"Sometimes I buy halal meat."
"I don't know. I just find them cleaner than normal meat."
*Memetik kata-kata Sheikh Imran Hosseini - lelaki dan wanita umpama siang dan malam. Berbeza tapi saling memerlukan dalam satu dunia. Pertembungan siang dan malam itu indah, sama ada waktu siang menghampiri malam atau malam menghampiri siang. Begitulah juga indahnya pertembungan antara lelaki dan wanita, berbeza namun saling memerlukan.*
