    Make all the basics: Baasto, bariis, samboos, malawax, canjeero and tea (LOL!) Walla that is all we eat I think. Can't think of anything else tbh.

    I don't know how to make lasagne (My sis makes them) but a couple of google searches and youtube clips and voila I can make it (insaAllah). No stress needed sis, we all make crispy canjeero/malawax. My cooking is all trial and error, so its all cool.
    I make the BEST lasange gurll. its honestly so easy to make! i very recently learnt how make pasta and rice with chicken/fish. I need to learn canjeero and malawax and look for other recipes too.

    btw did you start your practical lessons? I remember you passing your theory test in like winter

    You're better off on foot once you get a car and start driving you'd never go back on a bus.
    Haven't set a foot on a bus for over 2 years, either train car or taxi

    will your theory certificate ever expire?

    nope, I might start in 2nd year. not too bothered either. It will be much faster to go uni by train and I just take buses everywhere else so its not necessary. my 18 yr old bro is into it though and hoyo promised him a car if he passes his practical this year lol

    yesss I went towards the end of march till like mid April (my mum had to lie to the teachers to get time off my 2 sisters the week before Easter hols ) so almost a month. it was absolutely AMAZINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG and it is totally worth the hype. nope we don't have family there so we stayed at a somali owned hotel (not the jubbah one they advertise constantly on universal tv lmao). i dont know if you know this but I banned myself for like 3 months on tsr which is why i never posted on here haha

    we went at a good time so the weather was really nice. it gets extremely hot around this time i hear. me and my family went almost everywhere. we stayed right near the gold souk and the places they sell abayahs (abayas are very cheap too) so it was nice. I'm so glad we stayed in that area and not the centre because I find that they've 'westernized' it abit too much. the area we stayed had masjids everywhere and nothing could beat hearing the beautiful adhan go off for every salah.

    and don't get me started on the beach girl!!!! they have days when only women and kids can go to the main beach so we just chilled out there. I've never seen a proper beach irl before so you can imagine how excited I was they even have women only musems :O

    the one thing I didn't like is that the men there are such pervs. I got asked for my number 2 times in that period and some of the men have no respect. they will stare at every woman who goes past and so its crucial to never go anywhere alone or you'll be made to feel quite uncomfortable lol. my family hopes to go again in december inshaAllah

    shall i post some pics on here for you to see?

    MasaAllah! Speaking of driving lessons, my dad randomly said to me this morning that he thinks it is about time I get some lessons. He is usually not that fussed about it. Buuut gurlll I tell ya, might book some lessons but first need to find a good instructor , preferably a guy so I can learn how to drive like a duuuuude. I mean, once I start I might aswell be pro ya know? And obvs I need to sort out the £££ cause don't wanna bother my folks for it insaAllah.

    It is valid for two years boo.

    Anyone else here agrees with the statement that veggie samboos or tuna samboos should be illegal and the only one we should all eat is hilib samboos.
