from my observation, i think he is around 19 or 20 years old.
or maybe older or younger, dunno la.
his hair was spiked up, and it was dyed in certain places in light brown.
he is tanned and thin.
he looked a bit gangster la, in my opinion, but not the jahat type. he's too young.
when i extended my hand with the cash, he was careful not to touch my hand, and said "assalamualaikum kak!" ever so politely with a great big smile on his face.
i ni kan shy shy sikit, so i replied "waalaikumussalam" softly, i doubt he heard it.
when he was counting the change, i took the time to observe him.
it's so refreshing to see how such a young guy to have such good mannerism!
when he gave back my change, he said "terima kasih kak! selamat jalan!". mashaAllah.
he smiled a smile that had no other feeling except respect and sincerity! i felt his positive energy, and it's amazing!
i said "terima kasih dik" and drove off.
i cried a bit as i was driving, because i was touched (and hormonal).
i realised then that i lack sincerity. sometimes without realising it, i do things because 'i have to' or because i know it's the right thing to do. yet i do it without sincerity. how merugikan.. even smiling sincerely to a fellow sister is hard for me. often when i tried, i think i looked like i was sucking something between my teeth. know what i mean? haha!
a toll guy, who is younger than me, taught me something that day.
it doesn't matter how sucky your current situation is, always just be sincere and be kind to people =)
our appearance may not reflect our heart, but our heart defines us best.
after all, Allah SWT looks at our heart and actions. =)
so if you're worried about how you look or dress or talk, stop it!
because your heart reflects you, so work on that first and in sha Allah, the nur will just come out by itself =)
i haven't been that rajin to dress up since i got pregnant. but now alhamdulillah i feel so much better and my finals are over, i can start trying out new outfits! yayyyy! =p
Lace shawl from Soulendang, Raglan tunic top (Fashioncents) from FashionValet.com, skirt from errr tak ingat... and bag from Dorothy Perkins!
ni pun i rasa dressy gila padahal simple je.
oh and i have a problem finding skirts or palazzo pants that's not ketat at the waist.. rasa suffocating sangat kat perut..
and you gotta love the blings on the cuff of the sleeves. so cute!
i love that the tunic top is loose so that i can wear it till i pregnant 9 bulan!!! TAK KISAH!
salam and have a great weeeeeeeeeeekend!
