Crazy Airports in the UK

Yet again we are to surrender to terrorist threats! As you know I'm in the UK and just noticed the news about the security threats on Brtitish flights to the U.S. However it's effected all flights and forcing some seriously restricted hand luggage allowance. Check it out!

And now for something different. This is Jasmeet's little boy, Balraj and her daughter, Rasna. The sweetest kids! We're eating some Indian sweets something I miss a lot, but that's a good thing otherwise I might end up looking like a gulab jumun.


In Jolly Olde Englande

I'm currently in the UK visiting friends and family. So far so good. I've been staying with my good mate Jasmeet in Slough, catching up and chatting about the good days back in high school. One of our old mates Glen came up to visit and I really am out of the loop and can't remember half the people they remember.

Today we visited Jasmeet's family not just cause of me wanting to see them but also because today is Rakhi Day, a Sikh tradition that celebrates brothers. The sister normally ties a colorful string bracelet to her brother's right wrist then feeds him something sweet like burfi then they hug and this is the best part, he gives her some money. It's great to see and something I also took part in with Jasmeet's brother Harpal.

I realize that I miss so many other things about the UK, one them is Jasmeet's family, they're super great and consider me part of their family. I got lots of hugs as we tried to catch up on things, such as her sister Kiran's wedding just three weeks ago. I feel like I'm still English as my accent is back too! I'm still me the way I was before I left to live in so many other places and experience a variety of cultures and things.

I've already had my bangers and mash along with a shandy in a nice pub. I've been spoilt by Jasmeet and her family with all the roti in the world as they all remember my favourite dishes. Oooh, and kulfi ice-cream for dessert - wicked!
