Oatmeal in ilupachati !!

சிவபெருமானின் நடனத்தை எண்ணி மகிழ்வீர்களா?? !!அவர் எதற்காக எந்த நடனம் எங்கு ஆடினார் எனறு தெரிந்து கொள்ள விரும்புவீர்களா?? இல்லை, உங்கள் ஊரின் அருகே தான் என்ன தாண்டவம் ஆடினார் என்று தெரிந்து கொள்ள இச்சையா?? இங்கே பார்க்கவும்!!

Makkkale,
Finally... I have got internet connection at this new place..Will continue on writing about food very soon!!

Wondering why is this title? U know what???!!!! This is how I had my breakfast. As I have recently landed down at El Paso, I dont have much utensils and no microwave as well. I am cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner with just the 2 utensils I have ..Thats why..

But the title is not just for my breakfast. I see that its also the way people live here. 99%of the people are mexicans who share a very similar culture and food habits like indians. But as they are in U.S they have the previlege of enjoying modern things which they have incorporated in their culture...

Things I see here but not at other U.S cities :

Rocky stony mountains, Lizard, flame gas with no auto ignition, people next door come and borrow one vengayam/ one thakkali / one cup rice etc., many places/shops work on saturdays (half a day/ full day), corruptions, bargain in everything.

Still, they do all this with american comforts and way of life - now, do you get what is 'oatmeal in ilupachati' ?

One thing I am really liking here is their friendly nature. People are very friendly!! Anyways...
let me go for work !!!

Cooking with only 2 utensils, pavam priya ne. El Paso is a sand stone city know, i saw in Discovery T&L, that El Paso was famous for Rock climbing and desert. Have a good experience with the new city and neighbor friends (who buy thakkali and vangayam form u) :)

I dont know about el paso till today.
Looks like a lonely place.!
Hope these people dont become too friendly..
anyway... take care..

A similar incident happened at chicago at my sister's place.
People looked friendly..
People didnot borrow things but they gave a pretty big smile like this :))p. once the people also barged into one of my sister's friends house, looted them and also broke all the windshields of cars (only belonging to indian people).Unfortunately my sister's Honda civic was also there in the list. If chicago is like this then mexicans kekka venam madem!!!
Not to scare you, just an info in advance....
