Not in Arkansas anymore

You know you live in Asia when your 3-year-old mistakenly calls butterscotch chips "butter chop sticks."

You might also live in Asia if your 3-year-old says, while squinting in the back seat of the taxi, "I don't like the sun because it gets in my eyes! But I want to have hot water..." (Our water heater is solar powered).

Another clue might be your 3-year-old saying, while skipping down the brick sidewalk, "Watch out for those big globs of yogurt!" (I don't have the heart at this point to tell him they are spit-wads. I'll spare him that part of our host culture for now:)
