    No particular flow, or style....it all just came out.

    I Luv our lips and our full nose.
    I luv our strong attidues and the way it flows.
    I luv my people, I Love our food
    I luv our culture and history
    I luv my surname, cos it's hard 2 pronounce
    People look at it and say:"how do U pronounce that??"
    It's a bit funny, cos even i sumtymes say it weird(but better than others)
    I luv when people fumble trying 2 say it.
    when i go for appointments and they call out "N-n-d-dee**stutters*--bmauduu"..I'm like "Yea' thats me".

    I luv my native tongue, cos when it's spoken it's almost like singing.
    I luv the way it has consonants put close together.

    I Luv it all, I love being an African...
