Funny Things - Thailand Edition

No matter where we are, we always seem to see funny things :) This year in Thailand a few things stuck out to us :)
First....
Who lives in a Pineapple on a Thai Beach?....
Not sure, but it's a pretty cool pineapple house :) haha! It had electricity and AC! It was fancy :) haha! I really wanted to go inside and check it out! I wonder if they had curved furniture or if everything was square inside of the round house... hmm... :)
The day we went into town (Hua Hin) and went to the mall, we saw this boy all over the mall. The reason we noticed him was that he had a bird with him all over the mall. You can't see very well in this pic (we didn't want to use the flash and the lighting was crazy) but on the boy's lap you can see his bird. This picture was taken in Sizzler - a restrauant!! Most of the time while he was eating, the bird stayed in his lap, but at one point it was on his head, or his mom's head or arm... and they didn't even seem to notice! It was pretty funny :)
I love funny things like that :) They make me smile :)

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…
