You can add Slough, Luton and Rochdale to that as well.
Slough?

Why Slough?

Slough?

Why Slough?
Tbh it's not that bad but it's not nice either. It's a largely industrial area, the streets are dirty and traditional British shops and businesses are in terminal decline owing to the fact the Slough has largely lost it's white english population. You eventually get tired after seeing Asian restaurant after restaurant.

I wouldn't visit Slough again. But I would definitely visit somewhere like Norwich multiple times.

I'm the eldest so thankfully that hasn't happened. Though I doubt that'll last.
How old are you?

I have the same lips and also have long eyelashes, otherwise no.

Because of samosas and lassi

Finish uni, get a job, become a qualified accountant and visit different countries over time.

I guess it's because I'm seen as the "next one" to get married so they kind of try to tease me.

not a lot, I pray from time to time, and believe in God, but I'm not a strict religious guy. I'm generally quite liberal and open minded.

Haha it's just my strange family then but I feel the meaning actually resonates with a lot of British Muslims. My American cousins (who sometimes refer to themselves as ABCD) are closer to the Pakistani culture than I think British Pakistani's are. It's a lot more close knit but also quite segregated
