Today's portfolio was a bumpy one. To start off the whole drama, I was screamed at by a lecturer in front of 15 other lecturers because of my hair. Again with the hair. After presenting the site analysis with my studiomate, the lecturer stood up and commented me about my hair. As his voice grew louder and his eyes buldging out of his skull's sockets, I smiled.... and smiled even more.
It was a strange reaction of public humiliation but hey, I imagined butterflies and roses coming out of his mouth, not insults.
I'm in my third year and I'm still getting scolded for my fringe. It's a fringe, get over it. Islamic indeed! The thought of IIUM being an Islamic university never fails to make me vomit. Why, if having a fringe is so unIslamic, how about public humiliation? Islamic meh?
It has been going on for years, his vendetta against my hair. Apparently, he will only be satisfied when every strand of hair is a quarter of inch long. He then demanded that I cut it before tomorrow which I won't. The funny thing was, while he was spraying his saliva all over our site analysis model, a couple of lecturers were whispering audibly.
"Pendek la tuh..." whispered one.
"I've seen longer..." whispered another.
By the end of the presentation which will be our last, the most memorable thing that will forever be remembered by all the lecturers of our studio will be Afiq's cool fringe.
And I'm rather proud of that, thank you very much.
In a nutshell, IIUM is an excellent university with comprehensive learning of Islamic values. The IIUM staffs will make sure that you will abide by the concept of Tawhid by commenting, insulting, intimidating and my personal favourite, by giving RM50 summons to ensure graduates will turn out to become model citizens with strong Islamic principles and thorough understanding of values and virtues. Dot dot dot.
