lol @ "ugh snow"

Yeah.

Lol, the first day it was like, "Oh, so beautiful!!" She was in awe.

The second day it was like, "Very beauty."  A little bit less awe.

The third day it was like, "Eccch, don't step in the beauty."  lol

Then she asked me, "How long it stay to be cold like this??"

And I had to tell her, "Well, honey.....Winter doesn't even start for 4 more days."  :)   lol
Her eyes got as big as dinner plates....

people of wealth would like to watch the sun set from the cabin in the boat in which they travelled.  From London this meant that you would travel on the Port side on the way out of london and the Starbourd side on the return Home.  Port Out Starbord Home.  

You would pay a little extra for this cabin selection.

I have to confess I had to look up minge ...

Not that you are likely to end up in Mongolia (being a land locked nation) but in Mongolia if you poke your thumb between your index and middle finger (like the I got your nose - trick your grandfather played with you as a toddler) it actually refers to your mothers minge and your thumb is a protuberance located at the top of her minge.  Which makes this the rudest gesture that I know of.  You can wiggle your thumb a little for extra effect.  Usually this gesture results in an ugly brawl so use it sparringly.

They were quite shocked when i explained to them the "I got your nose game"

 I just snorted my coffee here. LOL, thats hilarious. I would have payed money to see the response.

I didnt know what the term was for a bit, its only after working with the brits for a while that I picked up on it. I had a buddy that came back from the north sea a while ago, and we went clubbing downtown. At one point we ended up at the mighty biltmore (its remodeled and changed now :( ) but he was walking around and telling EVERY girl in there that their minge was minging. Jeebus, I kept cringing, until one of them turned and shouted WHAT in a very Jordy accent and cold cocked him. He went down pretty hard, everyone in there was shocked that this girl nailed this guy without any real provocation.. I was the only one laughing. When it was told around what it meant there was a bit of a mob that were choked at him. We made a very quick exit once I had him moving on his own.

In a related story - i was bringing over some students to Mongolia and there was a cute little mongolian kid on the flight trotting up and down the aisle - mother right behind.  kid smiles at one of my guys and then i realized that shawn was going to play the game - he saw me lunging for his hand but it was to late he showed the kid "the sign"

Always wise to slink away from angry mobs - no matter what part of the world you are.

 The other Mongolian no - no is to touch feet.

If you accidentally touch feet someones foot with yours - i.e. under a table or on a street corner - you shake hands immediately.  If you don't shake hands you are throwing off the gloves ...

I was in a bar in the capital and this huge mongolian guy was looking for a fight with a white guy - he purposely kicked my feet  he looked genuinely dissapointed that I put my hand out with a big smile on my face ...

it's one of those great cultural things ...

 Just a little update....

Some time ago Sakha and I introduced my friend Tim to Sakha's gorgeous sister, Reaksmey (pronounced "Res-uh-my"). Reaksmey is a living doll, tall (5'4"), slim, beautiful, and just as sweet as the day is long.

Well.....Sakha and Tim flew to Cambodia on the 9th and in about 5 hours (at 5pm PST, April 9 2009) Tim and Smey will be getting engaged!  And, I also have another friend there as well doing some fun stuff.

We all call her "Smey" (rhymes with "sky") instead of "Reaksmey". Her full name, Reaksmey, means that she's "the light of the moon", or "moonlight". Sakha means "from the heavens, or "heavenly". Both of their names describe them perfectly.  

I, unfortunately, couldn't go this time, but I'll go again before too long. But, for the moment, at this time I have two friends and their fiances in Cambodia, along with my wife. Poor ol' teborken is all alone at home, boo hoo. (No sympathy please, just throw money.)

A little over a year ago Sakha and I introduced one of my good friends, "Jack",  to a girlfriend of Sakha's. Jack went with me to Cambodia on my very last trip (the trip I made to bring Sakha to the US). His main reason for going (other than to enjoy my incredibly wonderful company) was to get engaged to "Pheara", the lady we introduced him to. They waited patiently for the paperwork to grind through the system, and after a year of waiting, Pheara finally arrived in the US a few weeks ago.

We've been going out as a foursome to show the ladies the sights, have some fun, etc etc. Well, Jack and I decided it was time for the ladies to see a casino, something they've never ever seen, let alone been inside of.

So, last Sunday we all went up to the [a href="http://www.tulalipcasino.com/" target="_blank"]Tulalip Casino[/a]. The casino wowed them- they'd never seen anything like it in their lives, and they were tickled pink by all the lights and sound and stuff. "Awestruck" might be a better word, but they dug it.

We had a wonderful dinner at the buffet, and then went to go play some blackjack. Now, Jack and I had spent one hour the previous evening showing the ladies how to play blackjack and teaching them the fundamentals. We told them to "play like a robot", "don't bet on hunches", "stand on 12 or above", and to increase their bets when Jack and I did. Do Jack and I count cards? Maybe. [img]http://www.deltabravo.net/forum/richedit/smileys/YahooIM/4.gif" alt="" border="0"]  

To make a long story short, Sakha and Pheara took the dealer and pretty much mopped the floor with him, lol. Jack and I won about $100 apiece, but the ladies walked away with almost $300 between them. They played perfectly and although they had some small losses, they ended up just about tripling their money. They chattered on in Khmer the whole time, stopping only to go "Ohhhhh" when the dealer would give them the chips they won. Then they would look at each other, laugh, and say "Sva roomreh k'dow!", lol.

In Cambodia they were each making about $130 a month, working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, 30 days a month. (If the month had 31 days then they would usually get that day off.)

When they realized that they made more in one hour sipping Cokes and playing blackjack than they would have made in 6 weeks in Cambodia, well, they just thought that was pretty friggin' cool, lol.

Sakha is now known as "Baby Shark" and Pheara is known as "The Tiny Terminator".
