Thailand Food Again :)

More funny Thai foods :) I love to see things in other countries that are the same brand as we have in America, but different (or "same same but different" as they say here) :) Funny chip flavors are some of my favorite things. Here's an interesting one ... Blueberry and Hazelnut :) I haven't tried this one yet, but I think I will soon :)
Lemon & Sesame... I did try this one - I really liked it. It was very different though :)
I'm not sure what these things are (do you know Morgan?) but I think they're so pretty :)
This one just made me laugh... I'm sure that this exists in America in the South or at least at the Fair, but here are some fried hot dogs :) haha! They LOVE hot dogs here :)
They also love all kinds of weird sea creatures here. Squid is very popular.... anyone want some squid on a stick?
I think this is an octopus tentacle on the grill - so different than the food I'm used to eating :)
This one is very interesting. It's a HUGE block of jell stuff. It's some kind of vegetable jelly. If you order it, they shave pieces off of it and put it in a bowl with crushed ice and brown colored sugar. I want to try it soon :)
I love different foods from different countries - so cool!

I love Western companies, like Pringles, that are good at marketing products internationally. And I'm interested in hearing your review of the jello thingy! I don't think I'd be that brave.
I don't know what those little rose things are, but they are pretty! They look like they may be made out of tapioca starch or something similar...

Blueberry chips? I've never seen anything like that before. We had some grilled chicken flavored Lays in Poland last week and I thought you and this post. The grilled chicken ones were really good!

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…
