Self-referencing humour? Who the hell knows. Never seen adult diapers in a supermarket before though.

Ugly Car

Ugly Car

Description:

Found this on the 北京东三环 (Beijing East Third Ring Road) while I was heading for a day out. The most shockingly-awful car (aesthetically-speaking of course) I have ever seen.

Huge, misshapen tree outside one of Beijing’s Malls. To put things in perspective: I’m about 6’4”

Crazy

Crazy

Description:

What the hell? I ran into this in the 太平洋百货 (Pacific Shopping Centre) Sports Dept. Just looked like one of those crazy screamers you see in American Spring Break videos. Never seen a mannequin like it.

Golden Arches

Golden Arches

Description:

There are plenty of MacDonalds Restaurants in Beijing and they’re very popular. Commercialism is alive and well.

Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake

Description:

Finding a good cake in China is harder than you might think. Something to do with the flour generally used with the cakes. So it was nice to be able to pick up an attractive-looking chocolate cake from a little cake-shop inside a mall.

It didn’t taste too bad to be honest. It was a mouse-cake but thick to the point that it had the consistency of jelly. The top layer was very rich and thick, so a bit heavy on the pallette and stomach. But a nice treat when shared between two!

Chanel

Chanel

Description:

This is the sign greeting every visitor to one of Beijing’s ‘classy’ malls (this one is the 太平洋百货 – The Pacific Mall). Nothing spells out modernity more than consumerism… and expensive consumerism at that.
