Ogling more at old favourites like G.O.D. (Goods of Desire, yo.)

Eeeep! Screaming toddler in the background. Cutest toddler ever needs attention. Or sugar. I just heard my little cousin whine, “Mui mui yiu tong tong.” (Little sister wants candy.) This wee one is feisty. And I came over to play with her and her siblings so I should get off the comp, no?

Just couldn’t resist listing my loot after my fave retail superstar requested an update. :D I love me some comments!

Off to Macau tomorrow with my 76 year old grand aunt…and a tour group. Tell me about it. My sweet relatives trying to take care of me. I don’t really mind, I guess. There’s no point in arguing with well-meaning elders.

After Macau, it’s dins with my mother’s sisters and their partners. Fun. Did I mention that I love Hong Kong for more than just shopping? ;)

    Yeah, well. I studied there for a year specifically to study anti-Asian racism, and while I can’t label the whole country as racist per se, there’s an awful lot of smallmindedness. That’s just a function of spreading 17 million people around the perimeter of a country the size of North America and institutionalized supremacy and discrimination.

    I love Shanghai Tang btw. Are the prices there much better than they are here? Oh well. In the next year I shall go to Asia and spend as you have. Outrageously.
