Zipper Blues In Masjid Tuanku Zainal Abidin, Putrajaya
Salam. This happened quite some time back, about 3 years ago.
We went to Putrajaya for the hot balloon expo, but the organizers couldn't send any balloon up due to the rain. So we went to the nearest mosque, Masjid Tuanku Sultan Zainal Abidin for Asar and Maghrib prayers. I took a shower there before praying.
And for some reason unknown to anybody, the zipper of my modern kurung chose to be faulty afterwards. Thank God I brought along my praying clothes to the bathroom. And thank God there was a shop at the mosque lobby that happened to sell outfits for hajj and umrah. I bought a sheer white tunic, which apparently was meant for a guy, but what the heck, so long as it would serve the purpose.. worked just fine with me!
So as to make the sheer thingy beautifully hidden to all the public at large, I bought a pashmina shawl together with arms socks. Then I layered the shawl like the above picture, hooked with a spared brooch that happened to be inside my praying clothes bag. And I was happily at ease to mingle around at Alamanda afterwards.
Lessons learned, I have always made sure there would be spare garments in the car ever since.
You never know what future holds...
There goes nothing from me, thanks for reading. Until next time, Sayonara. Much Love, Nai @ TPJ.
