Valentine's Day Fun!!

Here's what we did for Valentine's day!! :)   The day before Valentine's Day, some friends threw a party for the kids :)  Aashini had fun playing with friends and balloons and eating sugar cookies :)
So for Valentine's Day we decided to try out a new restaurant that we hadn't been to before.  It is a Mexican restaurant that actually tastes Mexican!  It was great!  I got my favorite - nachos! and Adam got some yummy (and a little unconventional) Fajitas - they had broccoli and corn!  It was very good :)  In the picture below you can see Aashini making a funny face :)  She just took a sip of some Sweet Lime Soda - it's a little sour :)
Afterwards we went to a historical place we hadn't been to before.  We went to Safdardang's Tomb.  It's described as "the last flicker in the lamp of Mughal Architecture in [our city]."
There wasn't much to it, but the grounds were pretty and it was really fun to look at!
Aashini had a blast running all around and exploring!  She loved looking at the bees!
Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!
Happy Valentine's Day!!!


on my word. That is one serious Valentines Day!

glad you had a fun day!

Broccoli and corn fajitas... too funny! Sounds like life here! A friend order "Mexican pizza" recently and it came with corn and GREEN BEANS on it. Since when are "green beans" Mexican? :)

Looks like fun! I love that first pic too...I like all the pink you're wearing! :) Is the Mexican restaurant new? I think broccoli and corn on fajitas sounds good! haha I actually think I've made veg fajitas like that before. Who knew they were South Asian? :)

Looks like great fun!
I want to eat Mexican where we live, too. Oh well, I'll just be thankful for Thailand. Hit Sunrise Taco next time you're there. It's much improved.

What fun! Aashini is such a little diva! Loved the cookie post too. Your oven and microwave look just like ours. I'm trying to find some cookie sheets to take back and its about impossible!!

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…
