di dalam kelas neuroscience, seorang palestenian duduk di belakang seorang lelaki bernama benjamin ___man. which makes him 1000% jewish. atau dalam term melayu ottawa, pak yaya.
classmate:where are you from?
palestenian:i'm from jordan.
classmate:where is jordan exactly?
palestenian:its next to palestine, egypt, syria...
palestenian:no, israel does not exist.
classmate:oh yes yes, they are occupying palestine?
pak yaya di hadapan:(keluar asap dari kepala).
A:i hate it when people wear palestenian shawl for fashion.
B:no no, you know what i hate even more?the israelis calling it theirs.
A:what?!NOOO, they have just been there for 60 years, and all arabs have been wearing the shawl since... forever!how can they even convince themselves?
B:i knowww, even the falafel, they call it their traditional food! and...(goes on with a list of things)
A:no don't. don't. don't.

ada pak yaya yang baik. semalam ketika rush hour, bersesak-sesak hendak naik bas. seorang pak yaya sentiasa memberi laluan kepada semua orang lain, walaupun dia di hadapan sekali. ketika bas kedua datang, barulah dia naik.
p/s:pada pandangan Dia, hanya taqwa. moga kita boleh mengatakan, attaqwa ha huna, and point it to our heart.
