I was in malaysia this week and saw a lot of muslims. They all had a colorful scarf around their head. The younger girls wore normal clothing with their scarves. The older ladies wore dresses with their scarves. No big deal.
When I took the train back to Bangkok I saw a lady that looked like a ninja. She was dressed from head to toe in black and she only had a slot cut out for her eyes to see. I had no idea what she even looked like. I was a bit shocked when I saw her and she gave me a dirty look.
What determines if a muslim lady simply adds a scarf to her wardrobe or if she dresses like a ninja?
