Funny Things - Clothing & Boogers

I love finding funny things!! The Ladies underwear business is funny here :) It's usually men who sell it. I was really surprised the first time I walked by a shop and a man said to me: "Ma'am you want panties or bras?"... yeah... so the other day I saw this van selling underwear out of it and it really made me laugh! I mean, don't you always buy your underwear from a man out of a van?... well, maybe it's not that funny, but it made me laugh :)
There's a store in the market that I love to go to. I can usually find some cute cheap clothes for Aashini. They LOVE "branded" things here (brand-name things). At this store, they usually sew a random brand on an outfit or something to make it "more valuable"- it's funny :) The other day they had skirts that had Dora, the Little Mermaid & Bart Simpson on each skirt!! haha!
Anyway, I kept seeing this brand on a few pairs of pants and it made me laugh! Is "Butte Gas" a real brand?? I thought it was funny :)
They are building a house next door to us, so I've been taking a few pictures here and there and I snagged a pic of this guy picking his nose :) haha!
Nose-picking pictures are my favorite! :) I have another one here and my personal favorite one here (and below... I had to post it... it's just so funny!)
OK, that's it for now - hope it at least made you smile :)

I totally saw that same van last week. I kinda laughed and thought, only in SA!

Ok...that "Butte Gas" that a toilet underneath "Butte"????? Too funny!

Anyone have any ideas how to get a three year old to stop picking her nose? I keep telling her it isn't very lady-like, it's yucky, etc. but that hasn't worked. My great-grandmother was missing half her pointer finger and would always tell my brother and me that a booger bit it off! (but after she died I found out her sister accidentally cut it off with an ax!) So maybe I should tell that story to my 3 year old?!?!?! It worked for my brother and me!

Love the "brand names" In Syria there was a store that sold just the tags of the main brands in America, so you could sew it into your own clothes!!! Also in Syria men always sold the under clothes!! So embarrassing!!

Yes that has to be a toilet! How funny!
Yes, the van is crazy. That is one of those things I wouldn't even notice anymore if I still was there! I love it that you still have an eye for the weird! :)

man you really do find a way to get a laugh and keep a sense of humor all the time! too funny! I'm picturing you snapping those nose-picking pictures with your fancy camera and then running away sqealing and giggling. And it kind of makes me laugh.

BUTTE GAS??? no, no, no, it's too much!!! :)

The van just makes me laugh. I can barely walk around Target with underwear in my cart, much less go up to a man in a vehicle and ask him what sizes he has in "low rise"!! Ha ha ha ha!!!

too funny! So I was curious about teh butte gas brand and googled it - came up empty handed - if google didn't have the answer I don't know who would LOL

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…
