We are currently in Thailand working on some stuff, so we've had the opportunity to eat some of our favorite foods we can usually only get here :)
The first picture below is especially for my dad :) The things in front are usually called Chinese donuts (from what I've been told). They're basically fried dough that you pour sweetened condensed milk over (that's the part my dad would like) ;) They are so yummy! I have no idea what the round things are called behind the dounts but I love those things (anyone know what they're called?). They have coconut in them but not sure what else :) and then either corn, chives or meat on top.... I like the corn :)
The fruit on the left is the Mangostein (not sure if that's how you spell it). It's so yummy. The fruit on the right is the Rambutan - yum! It's kinda like a Lichee...
I saw this thing for the first time on this trip - never had it before - looks interesting... I'm definitely going to try it this trip :)
More to come... :)

YUM! Looks like fun!
That last thing in Malay is called like "snake skin" or something. From what I remember it tastes kinda citrus-y but a tad more sour? And I think Mangosteen is spelled with two "ee's":) Have you heard them call it the Queen of Fruits? Definitely sweeter than the King, durian. I still say yuck on that one!

And where are the pics of Mexican food? That's probably #1 on my list of reasons I love Thailand.
You should do a post on 7-11's and their abundance in the land of smiles! HA!

haha You turned Mangosteen into a Jewish name with your spelling! ;) I miss those yummy fruits!!
The Chinese donuts are "you tiao"---or "oil sticks." People here eat them for breakfast. Don't know what the other stuff on the plate is!

I second what Sharon said about Mexican food in Thailand...mmmmmm....

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…
