Everything New for Diwali - Part 2 :)

A few weeks ago I did a post about everyone buying new things this time of year... (scroll down a few posts if you want to see it)... Diwali is coming up soon! It's November 9... but between now and then, there are a bunch of holidays... we're in the middle of a 10 day holiday right now!

Adam and I were at the market the other night and it was so fun - every shop has tons of new things out, and people are running around the market with a purpose buying gifts and new things... It's kinda like the few weeks before Christmas :)
I have felt the best I have the entire pregnancy during this 3rd Trimester (so far anyway :)) so we've been going out and walking in markets at night - it's been fun :) Here's a pic of Adam being goofy in the market the other night...
This kid below was funny... his parents bought him a yo-yo... and the string was so long that he couldn't use it (it kept hitting the ground)... so he stood up on this stool / chair and yo-yoed away :) haha!
After going to the market one night, Adam and I went to one of my fave snack places here and got my favorite snack - Raj Kachori - YUM!

I've never heard of Raj Cachori - what is it? And completely unrelated sidenote, I love the gold bangles you've been sporting. :)

I agree with the comment about the bangles! They are so fun! Looks like you are having a much better time now that the 3rd trimester has rolled around. All that walking is good for you!! Speeds up that delivery (or at least they say)!!

What is Raj Chori? Is it in the ice cream family? It looks yummy. That water bottle is huge - how much do you drink, and do you have to boil your tap water? (If you don't mind me asking:)When I was in your neck of the woods, I remember drinking A LOT. And, I think the candy in the previous post is hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

Hiya! Thanks for the comment on my blog! We actually have multiple people in common!

I go to church with Tara Blessing and her family! What a wonderfully small world! I hope all is going well with your pregnancy!

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…
