The hilarious thing about mine is i dont live in one! about 6kms to the nearest town. 'Living in the asshole of nowhere' as its called here! The nearest town is quite small (pop ~1000), with a few shops, garage, and about ~12 pubs in it! Oh im surprised, just done a google search for it there and its health centre is actually on the web!

I live in the country, in the middle of loadsa rolling hills in south armagh, ireland. Very scenic when its good weather! check out my photo gallery for some pics of wot its like!

This is the castle in my hometown, its now a hostel so if any of you guys are travelling around the north of Ireland, it could be a place to stay.

Like Smythy's home, Dungiven is filled with pubs.

My home town is very simple; no historical heritage but with great forestry clearence...my ex-home ( malay village is totally gone! Only childhood in my dreams would tell how do i feel...sigh..nostalgia); anyway, i like my backdrop of the windows in my bedroom - with yellow palm trees in rows and a small orchard ( rambutans, papaya, pineapples... and some chili and more); everyday when i go or morning jog and back to my room, i would sit on my armchair and daze out the window - watching the birds and squirrels scampering here and there; May and June are the greatest months to watch tose animals coz this is the time for them to 'mate' - so i find no surprise to get a chirping chicks on the top of the trees every morning (tho my mum hates it!).

There's a river in neighbourhood but it is polluted as if compared to the time of my grandpa/grandma : the site teeming with fish had gone; no naked children bathing in that river:( as the timber factories dispose their waste into the river...:(

Well,well,well...
only memories will tell...

My home town is Levin, nothing to be that proud of, left it as soon as I finished college (high school), but it was a great place to grow up as a kid, it was safe for a start, we rode our bikes to school or walked, stayed out running around in bare feet until it got dark which was
about 9pm in the summer, played heaps of sports, couple of beaches,
couple of great rivers, could ride your horse anywhere

Wow, that sounds like a GREAT place to grow up .

What does "college (high school)" mean?
