Happy Birthday Adam!

So yesterday was Adam's birthday... Now birthday customs are different here... Instead of your friends throwing you a b-day party and bringing you presents, you are supposed to throw them a party and give them presents and sweets :) (they will also give presents to you too)

Adam wrote a funny blog about birthdays here :) Check it out :) http://www.SouthAsiaRolls.blogspot.com

Well, we went out to eat with some friends and then came home... Sitting by our front door was a present from our landlords... You can see it in the picture below:
You can't really grasp this picture by the picture of it... but in person it's pretty funny :) It's really shiny! I like how at the bottom it says "Have a Nice Day!" hahaha it's awesome :)

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!

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).
