it doesn't really apply much , probably only to those with such religion .

my sister uses short pants when she goes out . i've seen quite a number of people who's comfortable with wearing short pants wear them .

but it depends on you , if you'd want to mutually respect them for their religious time then wear long pants and proper t-shirt .

So it's really OK to wear a T-shirt with short pants and slippers during their puasa period? Heard from my friends that the authorities will catch and summon tourists especially at cruise custom. Don't know how true it is..

Do you have any idea though? (:

Sent you a pm... anyway, for others who read this, I have been wearing tshirts and shorts all these while. Sometimes I even wear singlets because I do sport. no problem so far... Maybe, just maybe, those authorities summon tourists so they can get money from you. hahahhaa
