But it's simple to plant a seed.
but to me, I think
I am what I am. I'm an Arab,
A Malaysian, a Greek,

I feel diversity, I feel exploration.

They say everything is bigger in Texas,
Nothing’s bigger than the taste of culture in H-Town.
From crawfish sushi on Bellaire
Bratwurst and Wiener Schnitzel on T C Jester
To crane juice and Pani Puri on Hillcroft
Or jerk chicken on W Bellfort.
اهلا بيك ('ahlaan bik)
We say WELCOME.
