Something New...

Well, being pregnant, Adam is always on the lookout for things that I'll eat (I'm the pickiest eater when I'm in the early part of pregnancy)... Anyway, at the hospital there is a little food area called "Whole Foods" (different from the big "Whole Foods" stores in America). Anyway, the other day they had Toasted Watermellon Seeds - I didn't know you could eat those!

They were pretty good. They had Masala flavor on them too :) haha!

you're a picky eater in pregnancy, but MASALA WATERMELON SEEDS sound good??? too funny. :)

we used to eat watermelon seeds when we were kids but we just toasted them up in the oven and put them on ice cream. like the summer version of pumpkin seeds.

Too funny! Growing up whenever we ate watermelon, we were always told that if we ate the seeds, watermelon vines would grow out our ears. :)

In Syria we had watermelon seeds all the time, but not Masala flavored. They are good!

Wow! I never knew! That's so crazy!!!
So can you toast the brown/black ones? or only the white ones??
I love pregnancy eating habits. Congrats on your pregnancy and happy masala watermelon seed eating.

Mmm I love that Whole Foods! They have the best little snacks, like their walnut pie. :)

I think they could sprinkle masala on anything and get away with it there!

What?? I never knew... I don't think it would be my food of choice as a nauseated pregant woman though...

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).
