No, I was never used to it but recently I wanted to try it and insh`Allah, I will this Ramazan.

2. Do you eat with your hand

Yes, if it is something you can eat by hand.

3. Do you wear kamees partog when you go to parties


"Parties" is not specific enough. If I am with the Afghan kamees partog crowd, then I will wear it, if not then no. In Pakistan and among non-Whites, I regularly wear it.

4. Is having Chai after every meal still important to you


No, I never drink tea or coffe or any of these beverages unless its iced tea, iced cofee, etc.

5. Do you own at least one afghan rug lol


Yes, millions. There are 4 in this room right now.


6. When you have melmastia at home, do you still separate men and women...


I do not have melmastia at home, but if I did it would depend on whom I invite. I am more inclined to seperate White men and women.


7. Do you still adress every older man or woman as uncle or aunt.


No, not every older man or woman.


8. Do you still gather around dining table or distarkhan for meals.


It would have been great if we did.


9. Do your younger siblings respect you as they are expected to? or if you have an older sibling, do you respect him or her the way you should?


I have no younger siblings and do not respect my older brother as such.


10. Do you cook or eat traditional food at home or do you make variety of dishes from other countries?


I can only cook very basic things.

I eat all types of food. I miss Afghan food.

11. do you wear chadar infront of your dad (for girls only of course).

you guys can answer the above questions and keep adding more questions if you got...

no politics here please...
I have a question for Feroza_Banu.

1. Do you sit on the floor and eat

Sometimes but mostly at a table.

2. Do you eat with your hand

Depends on what type of food it is. Shorwa would be with a hand but rice with a spoon.

3. Do you wear kamees partog when you go to parties

I don't really understand. When I am a melma then sometimes I may wear khut ao purtoog or sometimes I may wear western clothes.

4. Is having Chai after every meal still important to you

It never was. My parents always drink it though. I might start drinking chai in the near future.

5. Do you own at least one afghan rug lol

Yes, some of the finest quality rugs you could find anywhere Kabul.

6. When you have melmastia at home, do you still separate men and women...

If its close family members then no, otherwise yes.

7. Do you still adress every older man or woman as uncle or aunt.

Yes.

8. Do you still gather around dining table or distarkhan for meals.

Sometimes distarkhan, sometimes dining table.

9. Do your younger siblings respect you as they are expected to? or if you have an older sibling, do you respect him or her the way you should?

My youngest brother calls me oves lala, owes lala or obes lala - other than that, none of us use lala for eachother. He respects me. My other brother really looks up to me but can get annoying/disobey orders at times. I respect my older brother.

10. Do you cook or eat traditional food at home or do you make variety of dishes from other countries?

My mother always cooks traditional food. Sometimes she may make pasta or lasagna.

I'm American and even I have to have chai after every meal, so how can you not lol.
I'm sitting here with a pot of nice green tea while I type this.
I like wearing payraan tumbaan when I go to the masjid. It's more comfortable than western clothes and looks better. Tonight I wore a turban as well.
One of my favorite foods is qably plao. But I was surprised to find the exact same food at an Uyghur resteraunt. They have mantu too, but call it manti. tastes the same.

Before someone corrects me I know they spell it qabily palao or pilao but I think in Arabic and was writing it how I would write it in Arabic/Persian letters

1. Do you sit on the floor and eat

at home we have dastarkhan for almost all meals

2. Do you eat with your hand

dodai- rice, non, kababs, even shorwa is with non, can only be eaten with hands, aush needs spoon!! custand, firni etc, spoon, but i have eaten firni with non as well.

3. Do you wear kamees partog when you go to parties

always kamiz partog, waskat (not the bling type, the other suite material type), and khuli

4. Is having Chai after every meal still important to you

chai is served after meals, between meals, the thrmos always has tea, along with pista, badam, kishmish - khushkmewa

5. Do you own at least one afghan rug lol

which afghan doesn't have an afghan carpet. of course yes, atleast one in every room.

6. When you have melmastia at home, do you still separate men and women...

kaka, khala etc no. any one outside nuclear blood circle, rigorously separated

7. Do you still adress every older man or woman as uncle or aunt.

if i said 'uncle' or 'auntie', all of my kaliwal will ridicule us. only pashto/dari words like kakajon, khala.

if someone addresses someone in my family with 'uncle jee' or 'auntee jee', me and my brothers feel like shooting them!!

8. Do you still gather around dining table or distarkhan for meals.

mostly yes, other times the coffee table is very convenient.

9. Do your younger siblings respect you as they are expected to? or if you have an older sibling, do you respect him or her the way you should?

yup, i am lala to my younger brothers, kakajan to my nephews. nephews are always addressed with respect unless i have tsapley in my hand ready to be thrown at them.

10. Do you cook or eat traditional food at home or do you make variety of dishes from other countries?

always our food, we never cooked 'lazanya' or other western style cooking. we have polau, shorwa, bamya, kishree, mantu, bolani, borani, kebabs, dal etc
