Funny Things... It's been a while :)

Well, I haven't done the best job at blogging lately... I have been pretty sick and haven't felt the best :) but I think I'm back now! So I thought I'd make a new post on some funny things I've seen lately :)

The sign below cracks me up everytime I see it... I just don't get it... it's as if the sign has been eaten by the wall...
So, the sight below is a very common sight.... millions of light switches.... You'd think that all of those switches would be for the room the size of a football stadium or something... when in actuality it's for a small 20 ft x 20 ft room :) There is a light switch for everything... it's really funny to see people try to figure out which one of those switches turns on the fan they want... it's pretty funny :)
I saw this truck (below) the other day - I thought the slogan was pretty funny! "...intime intact" hahaha!!
The pic below cracked me up.... We were riding in a rickshaw a while back and I looked over and the guy next to us had a computer tied onto the back of his scooter! If you need to transport your computer and you have a car, you'd just put it in your car... so, if your mode of transport is a scooter, you just put it on your scooter - it makes sense.... it just looks funny :)
So lastly... I'd like to leave you with some Hinglish... I love trying to figure out with they are trying to say sometimes.... this one left me clueless: :) Enjoy!

Yeah, that last one definitely has me stumped as well...what in the world. I saw a book call Indlish...maybe we need to buy it. :)

Hey, that sign is very puzzeling. Let us know if you ever figure it out.

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).

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…
