    Umbwa wewe :teehee:
    The grammatically correct way to spell it is.. "Wewe umbwa" which translates to "You're a dog" but I'm unsure as to why you would say such a thing?

    They say it as umbwa wewe in kenya. When I first went to nairobi and started a school there, I'd say it to the other kids and the teacher wouldn't hit me because i'd pretend I didn't know what it meant (well that only worked for like a week until i got caught out lol!)
    Man, I miss kenya :daydreaming:

    They are very nice, the balls aka caano barawe are basically our style of fudge made of caramelised sweet milk/condensed milk

    while the white balls are also very sweet and delicious are shortbread cookies

    I can say the Somali Society is vey different to the Pakistani Society loool. Jus thought I'd pop in there a while ago from seeing it on the latest threads and they just talkin about conflict. Then saw someone being called a traitor for choosing the somali society instead lool. Talk about a first impression.

    Did anyone see the somali version of the fresh prince of bel-air rap? I know its really old but just too jokes.

    Them ppl are so creative mashallah. Fit in well with the song aswell.
    Whats the asterisks for? Werent you trying to say favourite?

    The somali society is full of girls though. Just a few boys now.

    Xalwa is not nice. Ate a lot of it as a child and just got sick of it. Same with beriis.

    The guys all come on during the winter season lol. And you also get those one-off posters like this somali guy who said he was raised in wales and then left after a few hours. I didn't even get the chance to tell him how in love I am with the welsh accent :cry2:

    Lol they scared of the beref. But seriously, a lot of TSR members come around results day comparing their results with others.
    Nit gonna lie was surprised when found out some ppl in this society aint even somali. I thought it was pretty cool though show them how we do tings.:cool:


    I hate beriis. Dont eat it when ma mum cooks it and ma bros and siss just eat it instead. Ma mum has tried to persuade me for years but she finally stopped *tears of happiness all round*. And meat taste like f****** chewing gum. I dont eat the somali way and when I went to somaliland relatives were like 'dont bring your britishness here...you in somaliland now...bi***'
    :sigh:.

    I wear braces so got a badman excuse now...yhh brah..:cool:
