    Amen!

    Haha a male relative will always be the ruling, it's the shari'a.
    Saudi's tend to treat my ethnic group a little badly, Bangladeshi's are like their workers and I've heard horrid stories of arab treatment of other ethnic groups. I intend to go on the smaller Hajj, the main one is a massive commitment but all in good time. I'd also love to visit all the historical sites and desert areas... Non-muslims arent allowed in Makkah and medina though are they, those places are beautiful (from pictures )

    The oil wealth makes me water haha. Ahh i saw a TV show on "billionaire boy racers" (spoilt arab guys basically buying al these amazing cars)... I'm a girl and I drooled! Haha they certainly struck gold with all the oil. Haha Sheik is just the title, my name could have been Sheik jina and I'd still be ... Poor me. My actual dream (shh) is to go to the Arab countries and just snag an oil rich guy... -_- Don't judge! Lol
    Yeah, non-Muslims can't go. It's not fair.. oh well I'll just stick to my wall of Jerusalem and chill. :cool:

    Truthfully, without that oil those guys would still be stuck in a desert land with no prospects - no offence. I never knew sheikh was a common title, I thought it was only for those of royalty or relatives of royalty. You learn a new thing every day huh? I wouldn't blame you if I was female I would do the same maybe you'll get a ring of islands as a wedding gift, who knows? haha :rolleyes:

    Haha... I need to find out why that is. Quite interesting...

    Why would I take offence to that comment? It's true, they'd all be bedouins. I guess their test in life is how they spend their wealth and something tells me they're going about it the wrong way. Lol
    Haha I guess traditional Sheik was a title for royalty... My friends name is Sheik and my maths teacher went mad one day trying to understand why she had a title. Lol You'll see that a lot of religious men also have the Sheik title.

    Haha, you could also attract a rich heiress? Haha... Ring of islands, ring of diamonds... Anything. *dreams*

    Which country did you prefer most: USA, UK, KSA or ... Was it China?

    Hands down Hong Kong, they cook food like it's no one's business. The weather, diversity and not to much the accessibility (Mountain climbing one day; surfing the other). It's all round fantastic and pollution isn't as bad as Beijing.

    Not to mention I'm an Otaku (person in love with anime for those who are clueless ) so a major fan of south-east asian culture especially Japanese, Korean and Chinese tehe I would LURVE to live in all three at some point in my life.

    What cities or countries have you travelled to? You lived in England all your life or moved around like moi? Ooh what's your favorite (sorry for the American spelling, force of habit) city and where would you want to live when you're older?

    The East Asian countries seem amazing.... The landscapes there must be one of a kind! Haha Otaku.... Bude would know what you mean... He's forever reading manga. What's the difference between Manga and Anime? Haha by Korea i assume you mean S.Korea.... Everyone's hating on N.Korea lately... No idea why. -_-

    Haha I've been to Bangladesh and Belgium for holidays, both amazing and very different countries. I wish i could move around like you though! Life must be exotic, how do you manage to find the time to study and take exams?! I've pretty much been in London since the day I was born.

    Haha do you say rubber or eraser... ?
    Ahh... I'd love to travel to lots of different places (USA, Norway (northern lights!) Germany, Morocco, ireland and Scotland).... I'd like to live permanently innnnnn.... North african perhaps or America...

    You planning on moving anywhere anytime soon? And where do you plan to live.. Other than the 3 cities you've mentioned already.

    :eek: How do you not know the difference between manga and anime???
    Well, manga is usually a comic-like book with pictures and mini-blocks of text explaining the story and anime are just animated *cartoons* with sub-titles or with an English voice-over. /Otakuness over

    Belgium is lovely, this might sound awkward but have you seen the peeing boy statue. the locals say he "reigns" over the city of Brussels haha

    No, I don't think I'm moving again. Most moves last 3-4 years but I have been in Scotland for 6, hence my british passport - recent citizen FTW! Also, we moved mainly because of my day's career as he worked in the oil and gas industry, so we were posted to quite a few places. Unfortunately, he passed away three years ago.

    So you've been to Belgium but not Scotland? What? It's a couple of hours away by train jeez. I don't plan on staying in one place, I would like to move every 5 or 6 years in my career. Since the situation calls for it I will drop my bucket list of cities to live in:

    Hong Kong
    London
    San Francisco
    Paris
    Dubai
    Taiwan
    Sydney
    Melbourne
    Geneva
    Zurich
    Los Angeles
    Tokyo

    Also, I'm trying to set myself up for studying in the states for my degree preferably at a top uni there. So for me in the next two years I might end up in Cali(Stanford/USC), Boston (Harvard/MIT), New Jersey(Princeton), Chicago(Northwestern/Uchicago), Durham, North Carolina(UNC-CH/Duke) or Nashville(Vanderbilt)

    I think we've finished every course now, and we only have 2 and a half more weeks so I guess they'll be for revision etc.

    What board are you for Geography? I might be able to help
    You might end up having to teach yourself Geography
