Any Arabs in da house?Watch

w 3ala fikra im from Libya
let me guess you live in manchester/coventry like 80% of libyans here :')
Haha no actually, I never been to Manchester or Coventry, I didn't know those were hotspots lol. I prefer to avoid any areas North of London, but now I'm stuck unfortunately. Ahh so you say bikkil! Nice I find the eastern lahja quite interesting, I can understand most of it except for some odd words. adunni ummi kanit min ish-sharug, lakin mish mitakkid. Ma 3omri ma tla3it kharij trablis illa lamma msheet li mkanat zay tajoora etc... Hope you can understand what I'm typing lol. Mish 3ajibni jaow il blad hadi, il ingleez ma yhibboosh il 3rab, nhis fi nafsee makrooh fi kul mkan

OMG PLEASE TELL ME YOU DIDN'T JUST INSULT LIBYAN FOOD!! HOW DARE YOU hahaha!! Wow seriously, it's delicious if it's prepared properly. Cuscsy bil7am khroof, busla msagya, humus, Cuscsy t3am mhabbib bissaman ahhhhhhh it's truly a beautiful thing! Ya3ni....7aja mumtaza bilkamil!!! Nhib il mbakbka jariya bidjaaj, mmmmm mlee7a "bikkil" as you say Haha. But surely the BEST dishes have to be bazeen and 3usban, prepared in the traditional way with local ingredients and trained people ma fee shay a7sin min bazeen bi dgeeg sh3eer, di7i, lham g3ood (jmal sgheer), marga gnaina.... Absolutely amazing!!! We 3usban bil7am khroof, galb, kabda.... Ahhhhhhh!! Amazing!! That's classic wedding food or for special occasions, it's so difficult nowadays to come across people who can cook it properly in the traditional way, but damn, it's a thing of beauty it really is, I'm very passionate about our cuisine even though I don't eat it every day. Nhib 7lawat il3eed, zay il magrood, 3rayba, ka3k...etc etc

Oh I forgot, 3seeda!! Amazing. 3seeda birrub, hadi 7aja khayaliyya!!! Nhibha halba. I found out they sell rub here!! I was extremely happy to find it!! I have it most days but 3seeda is quite difficult and messy to make, i haven't made it in about sitta sneen. Nhib nkhallut illuga lingleeziyya m3al 3arbiyya, haha, I do it all the time, bad habit.

hey gurrrl, lebanese girls are the prettiest imo
and whenever i tell someone im from libya they think that means im lebanese we both have Tripolis in our countries too hah
Lool I remember speaking to this girl who said she was from Tripoli, and i got really excited thinking she was Lebanese...until she spoke Arabic and I could hardly understand what she was saying
LOOOOOOL especially for you soft-spoken lebs,western libyan is difficult to understand if youre not from libya - not as bad as morroccan though..is that even arabic?! Haha

excuse any typos
haha i know 'gnaina' is a bit too cute, usually only said by women, people will give you very weird looks if you started saying stuff like "ma7laha, gnaina, nazka, t'habbil, etc"
yes they have rub here, its called date syrup! best thing is, it's just as good as locally sourced rub, amazing texture and beautiful flavour. date honey LOL HAHA imagine if you mixed rub m3a 3sal....actually would be quite nice. binnisba lirrub, nishri feeh min dukkan bakistani, shoofy illink hada: http://www.melburyandappleton.co.uk/...0g-10629-p.asp
