    From Pakistan
    And we cann sprinkle it with sugar, but we don't that often :p:
    You can have them on their own, with tea. Or have it as a chapatti replacement, or have it with yoghurt, or eggs or whatever They're quite versatile

    lahoh and parathas are 2 different things:p:

    lahoh is more like a pancake (never tasted it though), but parathas are more like chapattis =)

    Yeah I also tried to give him hints of deep inhalations but I think he was in own little world. I tried moving back too but the guy behind me kept starting before I could make a move


    I sent you some riches, hope they're of some use cos its all I had.
    Thank you, brother! I'll sub you when I get my Paypal sorted.

    I've learnt to just pray next to kids; they know better breath-manners and they're too short for me to smell their breath anyway.
