    Nope, arabic is weird in the way you have to identify both articles, al walad al gameel, el tawla el 7amra etc, whereas for other languages only one the is sufficient

    or there's the phrase "jannat el na3eem" meaning "gardens of bliss"

    unless they meant na3eeman which means "living in bliss" it is said usually when someone shaves or showers.. and the response to that is Allah yen3am 3alaik/3alaiki where you wish God give them the same in return lol

    I hope that's what you were looking for

    omg I have to admit I used to HAAAAATE it when I first heard it because I was like why are all these guys calling me a banana? then when I picked up on slang lol I thought it's funny

    @ Ahlaam some people consider it impolite because it means a hot/sexy girl and hmm we're not very casual with going around telling girls they're hot and sexy.. it's considered rude and impolite lol

    here in Mexico is very normal hearing guys telling girls they are hot/sexy/pretty/etc ... so for me is not rude or impolite, besides, I'm used to it!! hehehe

    ya a7la warde inti :* mmmm no sé pero no me gusta I mean I know most of my friends hate it too, but I've never asked an Egyptian girl what she thinks of it Maybe to them its different, but like Dreamy said, normally you'd be called it when someone is flirting with you...and my immediate reaction is ldrolleyesmiley: get a life So I'm biased

    On a random sidenote hermosa, shouldnt it be 'mozza meksikya'? Porque description comes after noun si? Like 'pez rojo'?
