Bugs.... YUM! :)

In most markets here in Chiang Mai you can find fried bugs to eat. We always see them and always say that we're going to try them sometime, but haven't yet. I really craved crickets when I was pregnant with Aashini, but never ate them when I was craving them.... so, when we were at a waterfall the other day and saw some fried bugs, we decided it was time :)
Adam went first and got the biggest grossest bug there (in my opinion) :)
He had a hard time biting though the wings - gross!! He said it was OK....
Next I tried my cricket. It actually tasted OK. It wasn't bad, but the cricket leg stuck in my throat wasn't that great... :)
Aashini tried one too :)
She liked it :) She thought it was funny to eat bugs :) On the way home, she got hungry and found the bag of bugs and just started munching on them - it was hilarious - she loved the grubs the best - haha! Yesterday she was hungry and asked for some bugs to eat!! What a funny third-culture kid we have :)

Are you kidding me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Adam ate a ROACH?! I can't even formulate words at this point, just a bunch of ?s and !s!?!?!

(But you ended this post on a VERY cute note with your little TCK asking for grubs :)
I love this post.
Not the roach part. That part made me scroll down quickly and body parts pucker.
The TCK eating bugs, however, adorable as it gets!

We have plenty of roaches in our house we could sell Adam. :) I'll even fry them and add in some salt if it means they would be out of our house! The part about Ashini is so very cute. :)

Hey, the fried silk worms are the best. Crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside! :-)

How in the world do you crave crickets??? I gotta hear more about that. Have you had them before? Weird!!!

Hilarious. You guys are awesome. I love that you wanted to do bugs. Maybe we'll try them when we get there and see what our kids think. I might imagine the boys would like them.

I saw the "thank you for bugs to eat" comment. No idea she had actually munched on some. This is great!!

I can't decide whether Adam eating that huge roach makes me want to cry or vomit. It's unpleasant either way. Keep Aashini away from that crazy daddy!!!!

Emily, I'm totally with you on this one. :)

Ok...I officially feel sick now. But Aashini is super adorable.

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).

Funny Things - Funny Sign :)
