I was walking through a local market I saw in Kuala Lumpur. There were no souvenirs for sale here. It was only daily necessities such as fresh food was lined up. Only the locals were walking around.

While walking, I came to the front of the clothing store. Two heads of a mannequin was placed underneath the clothing displayed. Although they were mannequins, but they covered their hair well. Since Islam is the state religion here in Malaysia, the mannequins also cover their hair with hijab.

Many people, even mannequins, may think it is not desirable to expose their hair. If they don't hide it, they might get a series of calls from the justice police.
