Most Fashionable Mom!

Sundays at the mall are pretty fun. It's the only day of the week that most people aren't working (unless they're in the business of selling things, if so, it's their busiest day!). Since people aren't working, they like to go out and do fun or relaxing things. The malls, markets and parks are usually packed! The mall by our house usually has some sort of event going on every Sunday. This past weekend they had a whole section of the mall giving out free food samples. There were about 30 booths of free food! Food samples are NOT common here, so it was very fun for us - felt like being at Sam's Club in America on a Saturday...
I digress.... so anyway, a week or so ago, they had a contest on Sunday for the Most Fashionable Mom. They have been advertising this contest for over a month, so I guess the people involved were the finalists.
It was quite hilarious! To start with, each mom had to walk down the runway (while the fog machine went crazy! it was awesome!) and then talk about themselves.
This mom (in the picture below) brought a picture of her god on stage with her. Most people talked for a short time, but she talked a LONG time!
Here's a video (only 11 seconds) of one of the ladies walking down the runway. It was pretty funny. She walks backwards and it makes me laugh :)

Here are some of the people watching - I think the expressions (or lack of expressions) on their faces are funny to me :)
The contest started with the runway and talking about themselves. Then, the judges (pic below) asked them questions (like a beauty pageant). It was really long!
We didn't actually see who won (it was too long to stay) but it was really fun to watch :)


So why didn't you enter? You totally would have won!

I was totally expecting you to be in this post!! I guess because Aashini is a model, it fits for her mom to be a cute maternity fashion icon too! :)

I'm with Christine and Emily. I can't think of a single good reason you shouldn't have been in this contest. :)

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…
