Here is a video of what Deepavali is like on the streets of Little India at midnight. It was so packed with people I could barely move!

Birthday Celebration

This next set is from November 8th, my 24th birthday! Coincidentally, this day was also Deepavali, the Indian New Year. It felt like everyone was celebrating for me. I’d have to say it was one of the best I’ve had yet. Unfortunately for me, I forgot to charge my camera, so everything had to be taken from my cell phone. Good thing I had one. I woke up and walked outside and I had to take the pic below. His face was just so… crazy looking! I mean, wtf!

Crazy Indian Guy

Anyway, I met up with Siti’s parents and we went out to breakfast at this Muslim center where there is all sorts of halal food. We had this bean dish with egg and bread and a drink called Te Tarik. It was superb! After we were done walking around a bit and doing some shopping, we drove out to their house and had some more snacks. The green leaves are palm leaves wrapped up with fish inside. We also had some fried bananas. The panda ad was too hilarious to not snap a picture of it.

After we hung out for a while, we went over to her neighbor’s house where they were having a Deepavali party. Everything I ate there was so good. Her neighbor also sung me a happy birthday song in Hindi. He said he wished that I would like until I was 1,000 years old! Too cool, but I think I’d be a wrinkled mess by that age. I sampled everything they had, and finished off with some ginger tea with milk. It was spicy, but good. Homemade cookies from Siti finished off the lunch of the day.

We drove around some more and went shopping for a bit afterwards. Check out some of the pics below of what I saw:

After that we went to Swenson’s at the Airport for dinner. It was quite Americanized food. The flag was sort of an ongoing joke, but the place wasn’t too bad at all.

Singapore Cell Phone

Thought I’d post a pic of my cell phone I got when I was in Singapore. Too bad it doesn’t work in Japan because they have no prepaid SIM cards here. Grrr.

This phone is 2 years old. It’s unlocked, super thin, great battery life, BlueTooth, MP3 Player, TWO 2MP Cameras (one in front, one in back), 3G so it does voice calls, and records video on a 1 GB card. This is better than the phones we have NOW in the States.

November 7th after Carousel

Felt like posting a few more pictures from after we were done eating at Carousel. We ended up going to Khalid’s school for a while. I snapped a picture from the bathroom because I thought it was funny, and hung out on the steps for a few hours. We had a girl from Red Bull come over and give us free drinks which was cool.

We took the bus back to Little India and later that evening, I went out to this place in Clarke Quay called The Arena with Vanessa and hung out with her, her friends and he friend’s dates. All in all, I had a nice time. There was live music and I met lots of new people. My camera died that night so I didn’t get many shots, but here’s what I managed.
