Aisha's back and this time she's talking about the evolution of the Abaya. The Abaya is a unique piece of clothing. This soft and flowing gown is both worn for religious purposes (to be loose fitting) and also as a fashion statement.

Many people agree that that it looks elegant, some say that the colorful ones make women look like Princesses. 

Abayas can also vary in price. From as low as 200 riyals (for a good one) to 10,000 Riyals for a luxurious one!

Some people genuinly wanted to know what's up with the Old Timey circus lights. First of all, NO, the circus isn't in town. Second of all, they sure look pretty don't you think? 

The lights represent someone from the family just got married and this is their way of celebrating. Lights aren't colorful, they're typically normal yellowish lights. 

Next time you see your neighbour's house covered in lights, maybe you should pass by and say congratulations :)
