His voice was like honey and velvet.
Okay, the school would probably kill me if they found me writing this, but they had totally went over the top. Totally ABSURD.
Last Sunday, during assembly, Pn. Norlela showed us a Gaza War Powerpoint and video. I never knew she was an emotional person (well, she isn’t, I think, since she’s so garang all the time) until she cried. She REALLY cried. That was when she reached the “Manakah saudara-saudara kita? Manakah mereka apabila kita perlu pertolongan mereka?” And then her voice broke and she had to stop between words to speak coherently.
I was like, oh no, and felt quite sorry for her and the victims of the war -because it was a cruel and gruesome war, what with the beheading of the Palestinian children- but then it all evaporated into thin air together with her last sentence.
“Marilah kita boikot produk-produk Amerika Syarikat untuk mengakhiri peperangan ini!“
Boycott America products???
And then the school started giving out flyers listing out the things or places that we are not supposed to use or go.
Things: Milo, Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Dutch Lady, Dell…
Places: McDonald’s, Tesco, KFC, Pizza Hut…
You might as well ask me to strip my whole house bare.
Huh. I thought boycotting was, like, haram.
