Of Hijab Styles and My Mom

My mom is never a sarcastic person, at least from my point of view. But she never fail to amuse me with her witty remarks, comparing one thing with a funny another.

And lately, she has been commenting a lot on the many modern hijab styles.

My sister embarks into shawl-wearing a while ago, and my mom compares wearing the shawl to ‘the wet-headed quail’ or ‘Burung puyuh kepala basah’. I think that’s partly because the shawl typical wraps around the head and accentuates the head’s round shape.

Burung puyuh basah?

Also yesterday she made this funny remark on the new style of wearing Ariani-like hijab with dangling brooch to her sister – she likens it to a turkey’s wattle.

Ayam Belanda?

She’s sure one creative lady, isn’t she?
