How about you?
I've started playing Persona 4 some days ago and I'm really enjoying it.
Are you Chinese? I always thought you were due to your name, but I just saw a post of yours saying you`re in London and have family from Tanzania, so now I`m curious.
I'll let you figure it out:
I was born in Britain, my mum and dad were born in Africa (Tanzania and Malawi), their parents in Tanzania and Hindustan (the was no India and Pakistan then). Some of my relos from those days are now spread across India and Pakistan), and my actual cast and ancestral origin dating back 1000+ years is Afghani. I'm part of a very niche cast called Lodhi Pathan.
I consider myself British African Asian lol
British African Asian sounds kinda cool. You`ve visited your African relatives before right? What about your Asian ones? Must be pretty good to have relatives in so many different countries to visit.
I have relatives in North Carolina, India, Pakistan, Malawi, Kenya, Zanzibar, Madagascar, South Africa, Dubai, my cousins just moved back from Philippines after 4 years, we have relatives who live part time in Malaysia and my wife is from Scotland.
Not been India or Pakistan. I have no plans to either as India will be too difficult for me to get into (they don't like people with Pakistani sounding names).
I would love to go China and Japan, but I'll settle with Africa. My dad has actually bought land this summer over looking Kilimanjaro and is looking at building houses on it.
I've travelled quite a bit when I was younger (not just touristy places) and I can tell you, East Africa you will see things that will blow your mind away like no other place on earth.
Your dad buying land over looking Kilimanjaro sounds cool, will that be for like holiday homes or is he/you planning on living out there?
As for India/Pakistan, I know there`s a bit of animosity between the two, but do there names really sound that different? They used to be the same country (Hindustan, right? As you mentioned above) so you`d assume they`d have similar sounding names.
Names do and don't sound similar. India has many religions but it's dominated by 3: Hinduism, Islam and Sikhism. Pakistan is pretty much 90+% Muslim. If you have a Muslim sounding name, they call it Pakistani sounding and you either don't get a visa or you get caught in paperback and process that doesn't give our deny you a visa until you give up. I've actually had friends book a couples trip to Goa for new years. One couple who was white and black got their visa, my friends wife who has a natural name got her visa, my friend with a Muslim name got no response. In the end he got lucky and flights got cancelled due to bad weather or he woukd have lost a lot of money.
That sucks about India though. I knew about the religions there and wasn`t Pakistan being muslim majority a big part of the reason they and India split in to 2 countries? Didn`t expect them to just not give visas out to people with muslim sounding names though.
At least there`s an exception though, just need to become rich and famous :p
Nice Avy. I think I came across a hi-rez version of it. Interested?

I think there are a few games this gen that have gone beyond my expectations, but they don't make up for all the ones last gen. In fairness, we are 2 months from being 3 years in so time might change the balance. Current Gen: Super Mario 3D World Bloodborne Witcher 3 Alienation DriveClub R&C Until Dawn Uncharted 4 Far Cry 4 Last Gen: GOW3 Uncharted 2 Bayonetta Gears...
$549 for 1TB base model. $599 for 2TB base model. Both models to come with a choice of either: 1) Forza 4K DD 2) Halo 5 4K DD 3) Gears 4 4K DD There won't be a base 500gb model as around 140gb is taken by the OS etc. Halo 5 which is just about full HD takes up 55gb. If Scorpio will do native 4K I can imagine it taking up 90+gb. There is no way MS will launch at $399 when they...
