Signs! SiGnS! siGnS!

A friend and I were talking about how many funny signs we see on a daily basis. They make me laugh, so I thought I'd pass them along.

This is the Laptop and Notebook world! Does that look like a place where you would like to get your next computer? :)
Remember all those commercials that offer a kit to refill your computer ink cartridge? Have no fear - you can refill right here :)

The brand of this soap totally cracked me up!! Mysore soap?? Awesome!!

I don't know what "fancy cracker" is referring to, but this sign really made me laugh :) Is anyone getting married anytime soon?

And last but not least (for this post anyway), instructions for using an escalator. It is absolutely hilarious to watch people use escalator here. In the city we're living in, we have a new escalator and most people in our city have never used one before - Adam and I love to just sit and watch people try to use it. It's great entertainment. Some of it is very similar to the escalator scene in the movie ELF :)

A and A, what funny signs...just wanted to tell you that I was at the BCM state student conference this past weekend in Gainesville and conducted a seminar with 2 girls that knew you all. Beth Masters from NOBTS and Heather Matson from your trip to the Philippines (sp?). Sounds like you guys are doing well. We miss you all but know that your are making His impact over there. See ya, Zach Allen

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).
