    i can speak more pashto than dari but my pashto is pretty bad so yeah....
    yeah im fully kabuli, you? and yeah both my parents are kabuli.
    yeah engineering is alright, not where the money is though.. but who cares about money haha

    u can never eat too much during ramadhan!
    Salamuna Jori bekhaiyri? Dilta rasha! Sangayi? Ze pakhto napoyishum :P

    Yup fully Kabuli and yeah man money isn't that important. People these days dying for it and doing extremely nasty stuff to get it. Like weddings too.. Why spend so much ? Why do ya even need a wedding? Why not just get the paper work done and live with your partner. Like GOSH.
    Sorry :P Lol a little off topic.

    haha 'Jori bekhaiyri' is the typical phrase that everyone thinks when you mention pashto to them.

    omg seriously, if only more people can be like you, most of the Afghan girls I know are stuck up as hell.. they want this and that and a nice house and a banging car and im like wtf gtfo gold digger. I heard this next thing from my cousin saying that when an Afghan girl gets married and she goes shopping before the wedding, everything she touches the groom has to buy. LOL im like get the hell outta here.

    huh i didnt say i can cook, but yes i can cook, had to as my cousins were practising too, and i've just finished college,

    give your cousin a break, her priority is her study, she can start during the holiday, hope we all inshallah do well

    but during Ramadan i've pretty much let my mum cook as i am too tired (and lazy) to do it myself,

    Lmfao, and when they try trade you for rice an you're like lolwut? :lol:
    And i know. Thats why i'm put off the whole idea of a wedding. If you love each other.. why does the whole world need to find out? Its like an opportunity to show off your cash. Yeah kinda lol. The guys family takes the girl out and she chooses what ever she likes. And the guys family can't really say no because it'll make them look poor ;l
    Stupid traditions. Creates arguments too ;/

    finished it, i still class her as year 12 cos she still goes school.. oh today may have been her last day lol, we don't really talk much.

    yeah my mum spoils her, shes pretty clever so she gets away with it.. if she wasn't smart my mum would probably try and find her a husband by now..

    haha yeah Poundland.. thats even pushing it! lool im so ghetto not even funny

    i swear in my whole family i don't see one happy afghan couple, I see content ones but not happy. My cousin married a Russian and shes the happiest out of all the afghans I know because she married him cos they actually liked each other. I might try and find a wife from Afghanistan though because I'm planning on moving back there for good soon, mashaAllah some really beautiful girls back home but looks are superficial anyways. lol.
