    ohh that sounds nice! Hmm I would recommend the city life at some point, althought its dirty and busy- its an experience.
    Not really, I'm kind of used to it as my rels are all here, I never went to Pak until I was 11 but it was a good experience and I learnt alot. In Islamabad, we stay at our own house, but in lahore it was at a hotel. As we were there for 5 weeks, it did get abit lonely, but we did make friends with the neighbours daughters. Its probably not as exciting for us, as those with cousins and family to visit. Birmingham is my 'little pakistan' haha

    hahaha I wish :P I woke up and couldnt sleep again! so annoyed as I may have just ruined my sleep pattern
    Tbh I did prefer cities than my small little village

    oh no, its not pricey, but I meant compared to the UK its not that much cheaper, but macdonalds I guess would have a standard price (approx) everywhere.
    hahaha omg yeah we noticed that too!

    yup
    ohh haha I would never be allowed out without an adult -was always with the parents haha - like all the shops are open and everyones out and about as its cooler at night and its just all alive and rides are open and people chilling in the parks and what not.
    Having said that, I've heard that there are underground clubs in pakistan. Some reason people there think clubbing is western etc

    Same- dont have the intention to enter a club either

    There are very few clubs, there's one in Marriott and stuff. But mostly people go to private parties which is just like clubbing but you usually know most of the people there.

    haha yeah
    i dont understand whats going on though there...
    its like being western doesnt mean you do haram things. Many people here dont club, drink, eat pork but they presume we do
    I guess its unbringing maybe?
    a gir
    l i know came from pak and eats haram meat, I thought at first it might be because she didnt realise here its not halal seeing as everywhere in Pak it is, but I heard she just doesnt care

    I knoww. People here are so much more religious than people in Pakistan.
    To be honest I ate haram meat when I came here too. Because it was really hard to give up on everything. But I got used to it and I don't anymore.

    I don't know. I mean the area I live in doesn't but areas near us do.
    I guess we were just being fussy and stuff.

    And it wasn't the meat we brought home, it was restaurant food. Like pizza hut or McDonalds.
