The Maldivians might look aloof, but believe me, everyone is friendly.Most of them, are just camera shy.(Many of my friends are not in the photographs)
Thank you for making my stay…so fantabulously wonderful!!
A lil note about the locals:
Although we are of the same faith, Muslims… there are some who believe in ancient folklores and supernatural. To me, it’s similar to “Bomoh” beliefs back home or anywhere else:foretelling the future by looking at your palms,ur maiden name thru ur birthdate..creating love potions and whatever potion you want..”photo” voodoos (ah-ha!Maybe that’s why, many did not want to be photographed!).. .etc and many more.Some are kinda creepy to me..but I listen (sometimes, I told them my views on these) and keep an open mind. Who am I to judge anyone, anyway?
Kalau takut, pagar diri dengan membaca Al-Quran sebelum pergi ke mana2.Insya-Allah, Allah swt akan sentiasa melindungi kita, percaya dan yakinlah.
