It would seem that Bonjour Glow~* has it's very 1st hater!
I've always tried not to be controversial. That's just not my thing. Heck I don't even swear! I'm bad at confrontational situations too.
Being a blogger, I know I'm putting my self out there to be scrutinized by the eyes of many. That's why I try to be nice, because that's what my mom and dad taught me while growing up. Some people thrive on controversy.
Like Xia Xue, and she's good at it. I do admire her for her eloquence because that's who she it. We can't all be like her now can we.
Imagine my surprise when I receive my 1st hate mail. Okay so it was a message left in the chat box.
Halal (Arabic: حلال ḥalāl, "lawful") is a term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law. The term is used to designate food seen as permissible according to Islamic law (Sharia, الشريعة الإسلامية). The opposite of this word is haraam.
Why should you care if Starbucks is Halal or Haram. Only us who are Islam should care. If you want to educate those who are Islam don't eat in half Haram places... U understand?
If you are not an Islam don't talk smart about what is Halal Haram here and there. Better be quiet.
*end of translation*
It was directed at my post on my post on Starbucks.
I care because I have Muslim friends and I care about them.
Yes, I am fully aware I'm not a Muslim. But I understand how important the validity of a Halal establishment is to my Muslim friends. We often have meals together and it would bring me great pleasure to know that my friends are comfortable.
For you some places maybe haram but if you understand and accept that there are non muslims in this world then you would understand that it's not haram for us to patronize these places. Wait, is there even such a thing as separuh haram?
*Friend pointed out that perhaps this person is relating to the no pork no lard businesses*
What I had written was in an objective manner presented in a factual way.
If you found it useful share it. If you did not find it useful then move on.
If you found it offensive then flag me.
I've thought of sending you a nice letter to clear the matter up only to find this when I clicked on your link.
Is this what you mean by separuh Haram?
So my hater has turned into
So I guess...
Well, I'm just glad that there are those with me to help me through this in such a short time.
Malaysians, Aussies, Canadians, I thank you all.
Yes, even LordKadaj for the seemingly irrelevant but still a compliment non the less.
So here it is, my very 1st hater/troll experience...interesting.

P/P/S: The dispute of Starbucks to me in this case is secondary. What is more important is my right to be more aware of other religions.
