Under the abaya II – naughty Saudi t-shirts June 13, 2007Posted by Aella in Al Khobar, Culture, Pictures, Saudi Arabia, Saudi culture.
City Plaza has done it again 😛 . It’s always a laugh going there looking at the naughty t-shirts they have for teenage girls.
I keep wondering if their parents know what it says on the t-shirts and heey what the muttawa would say if they got hold of them :P. Sure are interesting t-shirts to find in a place like this. Speaking of naughty. There is a lingerie shop in Dhahran mall that the other day were selling kinky (and ugly) costumes for women. They had put them on display outside the shop and by the doors and they cracked me up. It was cheap looking belly dancing suits, little Red Riding Hood, nurse outfit and other really silly looking things. I just can’t imagine these things being sold so openly where I am from and the contrasts here are refreshing and just cracks me up.
Most likely to steal your boyfriend
I’m magically delicious
I’m cute. You’re not. Seems so unfair.
And the winner of this weeks naughty t-shirt contest is…
Imagine this T-shirt wet
I spoke to a man from Bangladesh in La Vie en Rose (lingerie shop in Rashid Mall) the other day about living here in Saudi. He admitted that he as a man looks much more at women with covered faces because it makes him more curious about who is underneath. Not that I felt he is looking at the customers in any creepy way. He seemed to mind his own business but it’s interesting how the niqab attracts men more than an uncovered face. This isn’t news to me but it kinda defies the purpose when you get more attention than you would have without the cover.
