An open letter to Anita Sarawak

Dear Anita,

I’ve been trying to find your contact but to no avail. And the chances of you stumbling on this blog would be one in a billion, but I thought I’d just write anyway.

As an entertainer and singer, I know how reserved you are when it comes to your personal life.

But I would really like to know though, how it was when you met your English husband? Did you have any issues with him? Namely religion? Considering that he wasn’t a Muslim before he met you, was he open to the idea of converting at the time? How long did it take? And what was your role as a motivator the time? Was he able to adjust well? And was there any complication?

As crazy as it is, I really hope that you’ll reply. I’d really like to know …

  1. Haha πŸ™‚ I was thinking of doing something a little festive and what better than to update cartoon rinaz and cartcart with baju kurongs πŸ™‚

    I drew them using macromedia flash in different layers so I can update their clothes and misc later in the future πŸ™‚

    Then I used css in the template to stick it in the background. πŸ™‚

    Anon : Whats funny? *looks around*

  2. Aww gypsy girl πŸ™‚ Its just the old clothes, just tweaked a little here and there πŸ™‚

    I’m going to make cartcart wear a baju kurong when he comes to Singapore! πŸ™‚

  3. Hello, I have a friend whose husband (Swedish) converted to be a Muslim when they got married, now they are expecting their first baby. . . Would you like to get in touch with her ?

    I have been quietly stalking your blog and thought to comment now! πŸ™‚

  4. Wow πŸ™‚ Hi Clare! Always nice to have new friends over!

    I’m curious to know if your friend is from sweden or from another country? Having a baby now, how exciting it must be πŸ™‚ If your friend doesnt mind being bothered by a strange woman in Singapore, I think it would be nice to ask πŸ˜‰

    raimie : What’s interesting? Anita or something else? πŸ˜›

  5. Thanks so much for the link Clare πŸ™‚ I just popped into the forum for a bit and I must say how in awe I am by the number of posts in that topic alone.

    Its heartening to know that there are so many inter-racial marriages around. (It will take a while for me to read them one by one, lol!)

    Thank you again! Clare you’re an angel! *hugs*

  6. Great!! πŸ™‚ Yes, the world is getting smaller , especially with the Internet . .

    When are you getting married ? he he ! Will you move away from Singapore ?

    I married my Norwegian a bit more than 3 years ago and have been living in Norway since then.
    It is a bit more challenging living in a country where English is not the main language.

    My email is if you want to keep in touch!


  7. Sent you an email clare πŸ˜‰

    By the way, when I was in secondary school, this norwegian lady taught us english.

    She had the cutest accent hehe πŸ™‚

  8. Dear Marina,

    its really wonderful that you got your bf traditional baju kurong this raya. its gonna be very exciting for both of you.


    btw, i never thought i’d like green for the house, but i think its time that i get a little bit more daring when it comes to colour paint…err and i see you have a beautiful green baju for yourself too! πŸ˜‰

  9. It definitely is going to be exciting πŸ™‚

    I havent gotten him the baju kurong yet, still waiting for him to give me his measurements so I can order a suit for him.

    Hmmm … Not sure what design of cloth to choose though, but green would be a perfect choice πŸ˜‰

    Green is such a lovely colour πŸ˜‰

  10. Hi Marina, I am that friend that Clare was referring to.

    Sorry I couldn’t reply to your email sooner – have been busy preparing for the baby and off-loading my work on the temp.

    I have just replied .. and boy, is it a long one mail so I hope you’ll have plenty of time to read it through.

  11. Hi cuclainne πŸ™‚

    Yes, I thought you would be busy with the baby preparation πŸ™‚ How most exciting!
