No not talking about the kedai makan Bawal Power. I'm talking bout the Tudung Bawal yo, not Keli, not Kembung, not Siakap, it's the BAWAL yaww. #lamejokealert. Jyeah. The Bawal used to be the most super famous type of tudung evarrr. They even had grades for it based on the quality of the thread. Super #win points if they had embroideries in it, beads and whatnot.
Been a while, well actually it has been a very long while since I wore the Bawal. Been wearing the pashmina / shawl / selendang / kain panjang lilit-lilit sampai terbelit kind of hijab. Thinking that the Bawal is out of fashion, 'skema', nerdy, goody-goody and not cool at all. Tsk tsk tsk. Bad hijabster thinking, bad bad.
So as of late I've been super stressed. And when I'm super stressed I start to get really lazy to pick out what to wear, and just throw whatever that feels comfortable enough. And most definitely, damn lazy to be wrapping my shawls around my head, cause it does take time to have it wrapped around the head to be fashionably delish. Soooooooooooooooooooo. I decided, fudge this. Went down to my mom's room and took grabbed a Bawal. And, tadaaaaaaa, here's a picture:
Being the social media whore I am, uploaded this to Twitter and FB, and it was a hit. I have over 170 likes for this photo. Hilarious. So not expected cause this was me dressing down. All my other photos where I was all hijabsterish didn't have as many likes as this one did. Ahaa. Anyway, thought it was funny that people responded to this very well. I guess at some point you/I do get tried of seeing this whole Jedi-ish hijab wearers everywhere.
Hey, I still do go for the Jedi look, but not as much as I used to. Cause it's starting to look like a uniform for hijab wearing fashionistas. We secretly have an unofficial but compulsory known rule that "It is compulsory for all hijabsters to do the Jedi on your head-i." If only light sabers came with, now that would be the ultimate fashion statement.
