9 Misconceptions of a Chinese Muslimah Convert in Singapore

No, we did not become Malay, we are still Chinese. We don't eat pork, but that doesn't make us any less 'Chinese'. As much as we appreciate your concern, we'd rather you see that we've chosen Islam for the beauty of the Faith rather than for the misconceptions which you hold of it.
