Concert Fun!!

Last weekend we went to see our upstairs neighbor sing with a big singer here named Jasbir Jassi (check him out here - if interested)....
Here is our neighbor in the picture behind Jassi. Aankit did awesome!!
Here's Aankit again :)
He had quite the band! It was cool!
We weren't sure how the girls would do because it was late (it started at their bedtime!) and it would be loud and things like that - but they LOVED it!! Here's a video of people dancing and Aashini doing some fun dancing :) - if you can't see the video you can check it out here -

Jassi went to the lower stage a few times and sang and danced with some people in the crowd.
This couple (in the front of the picture with the lady in orange) cracked me up! She kept coming up on stage to dance, but made her husband carry her huge purse! So he was dancing too while holding her purse most of the time :)
Here's a short video of people dancing and the man dancing with the purse about halfway through - haha! love it! (if you can't see it - click here -

At one point all the adults got off the lower stage and a couple of kids got up there. Aashini wanted to go up and dance too :) When I got her to the stage she got a little nervous and decided not to get up there, but one of the guys that was down on the front row helped encourage Aashini to get on the stage :) (Please note that Aashini is wearing a jacket... it was 90+ degrees outside, but the wind was blowing and Aashini kept complaining that she was cold and needed a jacket... haha!)
Diya saw Aashini up there and wanted to get up there too :)
Here are the girls dancing... Aashini is doing a funny little dance ;)
You can see a fun video of Aashini dancing. The song that's play is a new song that is in a new movie that's coming out :) Fun! Here's the link in case you can't see it -

Aashini was mixing in some of her Taekwondo with her dancing :) haha!
It was a super fun night! We all had a lot of fun!
Great Job Aankit!!!! :)
Happy Birthday Mom!

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…
