Stuff :)

hey! Thought I'd send some pics of some fun and funny stuff we've seen and done in the last week :)

The fair is in town! We went to the fair the other day :) They had TONS of little shops set up around it with toys for kids :) It was cool.

You can see masks like this on most people's houses. These are put on the house, to ward off evil, protect the house, etc. This particular mask is located at the house across the street from us. We thought it was funny because this mask (used for protection), has it's own protection (the plastic bag around it)... OK, I thought it was funny :)

OK, so this is absolutely hilarious!!! I love the organizational structure of this poster for kids. This specific poster is of different kinds of birds. This section of it made me laugh :) FLAMINGO AND BIRDS OF PREY! Who would have put those together! Hahaha :) That Rocks!!

OK, so ignore how strange I look in this picture :) (It was a LONG day) I was trying to make a dip (you know, like chips and dip)... and it called for cream cheese... well, even though we live in a land FULL of cows, we don't have cream cheese. So..... we have to make it ourselves.... now, before coming here I would not have been able to tell you how to make cream cheese... but Oh, the things you learn how to do living overseas :) OK, so I have to get yogurt and put it in some loosely woven cloth - in this case, my dupatta (the thing I wear around my neck out in public). Anyway, you put the yogurt in the cloth and let the water/liquid stuff drip out for most of the day (about 5-6 hours). Then.... you have cream cheese (although if you eat it plain, it's not that great... but it's good for recipes)... well, the recipe wasn't a success because I used fresh pineapple instead of the canned kind and boy was it disgusting!! OH well :)

This is a picture of man that we see everyday on our way to our language lesson. I thought it was a fun pic :) Enjoy!

Adam and I get a chance to go down south for a week for a conference thing :) So the next post will have pics from another part of our country! Rockon!!

The first thing I thought about when I "saw" that you were making cream cheese is that yummy strawberry pretzel salad and the cream cheese and cool whip filling. You guys want to come over tomorrow night and I'll make it just for you?!! Let me know! :-)

Hey guys! This is joyce from Bdesh. your neighbor. I enjoy reading your blog. My friend here makes cream cheese but adds powdered sugar at the end. I haven't tried it. You are right...we do things here we never would have imagined in the states.

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…


Starbucks opened in our city last night!!  I'm not a huge coffee drinker... but I was excited about the opening!!  (I think I like Starbucks because of all the green! haha!... Aashini and Diya think the mermaid on the logo looks like me... haha! Maybe it's the weird wavy hair :)... not sure :) )
Anyway, we got there and the line was SUPER long!  The wait time was about 45 minutes!!!  There were so many people there!!!  I tried to get a pic of all the people... (that's why this picture is at an annoying angle... I was trying to get it all in in between the columns :))    Here's Aashini doing a jumping picture!!  The girls tried to do a jumping picture :) haha!  haha!  They had a few spills along the way :)
 I never got them both jumping :)  Stuff for sale....  OK, one more because I think they are cute :) haha!  People waiting in line :) Some friends that made it inside! :)  We decided not to wait in line... So we'll have to go back soon and check it out :)
