Sis, you need to get to Upton Park on District Line on the tube. It's literally 2 min walk outside the station. It's on the 'desi' famous Green Street which has all the Asian clothes & jewellery shops.
The Market has other bits & bobs, fruit & veg, hijabs, abayas, costume jewellery etc.

Ps. Haven't watched the video though.

وَلَسَوْفَ يُعْطِيكَ رَبُّكَ فَتَرْضَىٰ

And soon will your Lord give you so that you shall be well pleased.

This is Queens market at upton park. Green street basically.

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Oh I've seen him in real life, and thought he was rather strange. Just watched the video.

Ok, Green St is achievable for me. So next time you wanna meet up, let me know In Sha Allah. I usually tend to stay away, cos I actually love it, & I tend to have a shopping habit which I'm trying to curb. Wink

This is hilarious!! Cheesy Cheesy esp towards the end when he changed his tune from pop to tragic hindi song  Cheesy

I would think it would be a good business plan to launch a nationwide business called 'One pound fish' and train all his workers to sing the song! But a record deal?? really..? Don't think that'll last very long!!

Ahh, Green street, my extended family a big fan of that..especially in the old days...I think I may have been there when I was younger, but not during any of my recent trips.


That was, as you Brits say - (is Jannah British yet?  Grin Wink ) BRILLIANT!

Yikes!! Someone sent me the professional video of the one pound fish guy!! I'll just describe it so you guys don't have to hurt your eyes!! lol Basically they tried to slick him up in a suit and gelled back hair and gave him all these beautiful background dancers in skimpy clothes. And they dance around with plastic fish and stuff.  Shocked Shocked So far has 4 million hits! I think they were trying to make it a Gagnam style kind of phenomenon so invested in it!

Update: My british cousin posted it on facebook - I was expecting the girls were going to be dressed more scantily than they were, after Sis J's comment, but I was thinking about the "my eyes my eyes" comment as I watched lol.

Oh. My. Giddy. Aunt!

Just saw the video, one word H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S!

The two girls dancing behind him seem a tad embarrassed and kind of 'What the...'?!'

It's very pussy cat dolls ft AR Rahman in jai ho isn't it? Perhaps white folk think that's the typical bollywoodesque dance song thing lol?Huh??

What I wanna know is why is he trying to sell fish to 'laydies' don't blokes want to buy fish then?

Agreed Aunty - though you ladies do the food shopping mostly, but I think we all know that's more appealing - given the fact he's a guy - maybe if a girl was singing, she's be "Come on, boys, 1 pound fish" *insert seductive voice here* Wink
