Oh my that's odd…

So as many of you know, I’m currently living in Beijing. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve just told you. And I bump into some fairly random things when out and about. Here are some of my recent accidents:


What the hell? Chocolate Flavour Cheese? Bleurgh. I didn’t give it a try and my arteries are still thanking me. For anyone who’s interested the Chinese for Chocolate is 巧克力 (Qiao Ke Li). There’s a phone advert plastered on half the billboards in Beijing for a “Chocolate” phone. Their slogan? 爱巧克力你 (Love chocolate you) with the English subtitle (I Chocolate You – 爱 is pronounced Ai in Chinese).

Dr. Pee

Adult Diapers. Called Dr. P . Who knew adult urinary problems could be fun! I have never seen adult diapers in a supermarket before I spotted these next to sanitary towels (don’t ask :P) in Carrefour.

Coon Cheese

This was both startling and funny until I realised it came from Australia :P.

Mc Consumerism

For anyone who still harbours the misguided view that China is, in fact, Communist. McKids. It’s actually the scariest thing I’ve ever seen in China. Childhood obesity ain’t fun. Even if you’re wearing a super-sized pair of toddler mittens.

That’s it for now!
