A Lovely Question


Few days ago, someone has sent me this message and asked me a lovely question...

Peace be upon you,
How are you hope you are fine. Sorry for inconvenience.
But actually, I wonder why did you choose this name for youself (Bitten by an Arab bug" don't you feel it a bit offensive. I have entered your blog, it is nice. I'm really fond of your country and the big industrial progress there.Hope you could visit us here in KSA.
My regards.

Hello there :)

Thanks - first, for liking my blog and second, ahmm for the interesting question :)

It is not offensive as "to be bitten by the bug" means to have a sudden strong interest in something. Example: Like milions of girls all over the world, Reenai has been bitten by the Pattinson bug. (Rob Pattinson/Edward Cullen of Twilight)

Since I am from the Southeast Asia who lives in the Gulf, fell in love with an Arab, etc..... therefore I am "bitten by an Arab bug" ✿
