Hi everyone! Nanikens, what a great idea and a cute name for this topic.

A couple of nights ago Sister P. and I drove around the Hastings Ranch area of Pasadena to see the elaborate Christmas light displays. It's the first time I saw them (except on tv) and was quite a nice adventure. It turned into an adventure because the street we were supposed to go up was blocked off with the Rose Parade Floats! After checking our map a few times, we managed to weave our way around the blockades and find the Hastings Ranch area. After that we saw Christmas Tree Lane in Altadena....really, really tall trees decked out with colored lights. Since we did this after Christmas we were the only ones on these little neighborhood streets which was great.

Thought I'd have Thai food today but it was closed. The new owner said they will reopen tomorrow with Korean, Chinese and Thai food! Oh, for an Asian food lover like me that sounds great! :w00t: Sure hope the cook is as good as the last one. The new owner also says the prices will be cheaper!

No, I'm not a cook. Can cook but it just isn't one of my interests....thanks for the offer though.

Grocery shopping today and got a huge order. Walked up to the market for some exercise; caught a taxi home since the market's van that takes you home for free had loads of people waiting for it.

Any takers on Lilacday's curry? :) Do you use Tumeric in it? I hear that Indian spice is quite good for you.

When my Indian friends lived in my apartment building, I got to sample quite a bit of Indian food and sweets. Once they took me to a big Indian shop with sweets, Indian foods, clothing and jewelry....quite interesting. Also, got to "Little India" with my Bangladeshi friends....fun and interesting.

Do you have many Indian restaurants in London? Or what about anyone else's area? We have loads of ethnic restaurants and shops in L.A.

no tumeric in this one! it is also quite sweet with the coconut milk........as well as spicy

There are loads of indian restaraunts in London, there is a famous road in East London called Brick Lane, where there are many authentic indian restaraunts. Generally, you can probably find a restaraunt for most kinds of cuisine in London (think thats why i like living here so much) Also WestIndians make lovley curry too, curry goat and rice is one of my favourites. today, we were blessed by a neigbour (and sister) with some lovley tandoori chicken (caribean style).

Nice to see you, Nanikens! Oh, I never know when I'm able to be on the computer. But if the rest of you want to do that, fine. If I happen to be around, I'll join in.

Adam used to have a Chat Room but it never got used so he discontinued it.

Wow, didn't realize you were in the jungle. Somehow I thought of So. Africa more as desert or bush terrain. Do you have both? Your rain storm sounds great....I really miss rain. We are in a desert area but the offices, apartment buildings and homes landscape nicely so it looks nice and green and lots of flowers. Also, about 15 miles West we have the ocean and a couple hours N.E. we have mountains that can get snow.
