Getting Festive

Parc 66’s Christmas theme is Smurfs. They’ve set up a village in the mall.

As a side note, I haven’t been able to blog all week due to poor Internet service. Ugh! I’ve got two VPNs but neither worked till today.

Hello

The ever popular Hello Kitty beckons shoppers to this jewelry shop. She reminds me of a story I heard. A colleague worked with a woman in her late 20s who surrounded herself with Hello Kitty toys and images. Finally, the man had to ask. “What’s up with all the Hello Kitty paraphernalia?”

The woman explained, “She’s such a good role model.”

Huh? Hello Kitty does and says nothing.

Jinan has an Ikea?

Could this be so? I wondered as I spied this sign. It’s the right colors, but everything else seemed off. I pressed on to investigate.

As much as I’d like to see an Ikea conveniently located in Jinan, it just looks too good to be true. Yes, there’s Ikea items and the prices are pretty close to what I’ve seen in their Guangzhou store, but a lot seems off. Very off.

One of the associated, who spoke English well, approached my friend and I and explained that this business helps people buy Ikea goods in Jinan. Interesting.
