  • lol, good one.
    Writing on a bit of rice is a thing you can see at every exit doors of INTERMARCHE (French stores), or in Wole Mart. I thing that a full poem writen on a bit of rice is more awesome. if You wanna see that you can seee it in qasser al 3admeh [قصر العضمة](the governors palace, maybe like that) in damascus.
