No, thanks..

But, if I am not mistaken, it also reads 'CHINA Paneer' and 'CHINA Mutter'! Ever tried it?

BTW, US$ 8 for this stuff?!?

Has anybody been to the "Exchange and Lone mela" for something at Kollam?

This is off / opposite the TVS two wheeler showroom somewhere in Kollam / Quilon.

Sorry, could not tak pics; just had enough time to have a second glance to confirm the spelling.

I think "boom" is fine. However, it doesn't say anything about waiting until that barrier and sign have been moved out of the way!

Sounds like a funny combination of singles and partner swapping parties! Life in a small Kerala town must be a bit different to how I imagine it...

Only people with an invalid licence can use the disabled parking!


(no offence to the disabled: just a play on words)

Its an N, in case you are worried!
I don't think this belongs here. The letter 'N' is just being covered partially. There is absolutely nothing quirky about the nameplate.

BTW, God bless your naughty mind.
