Diwali

Diwali, also known as Deepavali (a "row of lamps"), is perhaps the most important and ancient of the Indian festivals.

It is celebrated throughout India as well as in Indian communities around the world. It is colloquially known as "The Festival of Lights" - the time when families light small oil lamps (known as diyas) and candles around the home and set off firecrackers and fireworks.

Me in Kurta & Pyjama for Diwali providing a smile worthy of my Thai friend Poulet :-)))))))))))

And sorry about the "pose" like taking them but not being in them.

I seem to be having trouble posting photos so you are stuck with this for a while !!!

The more you put in to celebrations the more you get out - I am sure wearing the clothes adds to the whole enjoyment.Your information has certainly taught me a great deal.
As for the pose - makes you look very wise!

HAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.................I'll try ;))) LOL
A BIG smile to you, from the land of smile, Roger ;)))

Glad it gave you a laugh Poulet, I was only joking with you of course.

Further broadening my ethnic horizons soon, a Thai customer keeps insisting she and her husband must take me to dinner at her sisters restaurant so that can't be far away.
Nov 10 2007 08:31 GMT Londi PRO
And thank you for further broadening our knowledge as well! Interesting info!

And by the way, great photo of you in pj's :)

Aha! that means you'll have a real (I guess LOL) Thai foods!! ;))
I used to eat many strange foods which they called Thai foods when I went abroad, Roger. Anyway, all of those restaurants owned by foreigners! Lots of stories about this matter but I'd better keep my mouth shut! ;)))

Try Pa-nang Kung (Shrimps cooked in red curry paste and coconut milk), Tom Yum Kung (I guess you know this dish), Gia Hor Bai-toey (Deep-fried fillet of chicken wrapped in Pandant leaves), Tod Man Pla (Deep-fried Thai fish cake), and..........ETC!

Hope you'll enjoy them! ;D
