  1. Totally hilarious, honeybee – I loved it. I’ve tagged you on a meme;
    please come by and check my post with the rules and play along if you are so inclined. If not – no worries – but it would be fun to learn more about you. Cheers!

  2. Oh my God this is unbelievable! What you have written is hitting home completely to the Indian transplant in the US! I plan to visit very often here. LOVE it!

  3. Hi Elizabeth. Good to see you again. I would love to play along! Give me a few days to think up some answers 🙂

    Thanks RBK. Do come back and hopefully we will have some updates. Will be visiting you very soon too!

  4. Great list!

    My husband loves to make rasam when we feel we are about to get sick-lots of ginger, lots of chilis. Delicious and seems to work.

    I’m still working on the parsley vs. cilantro one : )

  5. MMM rasam! Welcome to the site Minnie.

  6. I’m in awe of the Indians who squat & pee on a moving train. Simply amazed.
