Life is getting pretty interesting. So interesting that I don’t know whether I should be happy, sad, scared, or worried. Today I found something interesting in my inbox. Two people asked me the same question:
سلام عليكم هل انت المذيعة قناة دبي تي في؟
سلام عليكم هل أنت المذيعة مريم امين؟
Although I took Arabic for three consecutive semesters during my undergrad years I could only make out that “Hal Anti” means “How are you?”, which is, actually… wrong. It doesn’t mean that.
Google translated, it means:
Peace be upon you Are you a presenter at the Dubai TV channel?
Peace be upon you Are you a presenter Mariam Amin?
Ah well. Anyway, I didn’t reply the messages. I’ve had quite a number of unknown/unidentified people writing me messages on facebook. I’m sure many of you have too, but I have to say this would be the most interesting message I’ve come across so far.
Okay truth is, the question that’s been on my head these few days is, am I being stalked? I really hope not. I don’t care if someone is trying to make a fool out of me. Or even trying to play tricks on me to make me look stupid. As long as no one is stalking, I’m okay. I just hope it’s not one person stalking, and this person is taking on many personalities. That would really really really scare me.
Today, also, I found a really big leaf and a small flower placed neatly under my wiper. I did look for a note but I couldn’t find any. Looked around didn’t see anybody. I hope I don’t get another one tomorrow.
Ya Allah lindungilah aku dari mereka yang berniat jahat, bersifat iri hati dan dengki dan lindungilah aku dari seksa, dan fitnah. Sesungguhnya Engkau maha melindungi. Amiin.
