So I see a lot of strange things here, and I felt like sharing them with you. First off, proof that i secretly live where Hatoful takes place. Birds are a recurring motif in the town where I'm living. It kinda confuses me. Even the Air Force base (which is named after a town) follows the avian theme with the name Osan -- which translates to "Crow Mountain." In Korea, they actually encourage plastic surgery. Pretty much every celebrity you see has some form of work done, from something as innocuous as Double Eyelid surgery, to something as drastic as V Line, where they reshape your fucking chin. This was snapped in the subway station on my way to a mall in Gangnam (so the "classy" rich people district (No Psy jokes please)). The text is hard to see, but it says "Before" and "After" beneath the emoticons. Large Version here. This little phone charm is from a set of hand gestures. You can see on the bottom that it has a little lexicon of what the different gestures mean. The best part is that the middle finger means "Okay." What. This one I know I've posted in Angie's Love Revo thread, but yup, found this in the Nintendo store. While I was very tempted to get it for Reasons, i'm not about to drop $40 on an anatomy fail game. While not really that weird, this is a doggy dress I got at a dollar store (well, sorta. It's a store where things don't go over $8 in price, and they have all kinds of things, including cooking utensils) for shiggles so my dog would have a Halloween costume. The thing is, she actually likes wearing it. Oh, and that green, plastic liter bottle there? That's not sprite, that's Soju, which is basically Korean Vodka. My husband got it by mistake because it was by the register and he thought it was water. Occasionally, I see some really cute things. This is a bento I picked up at the same bargain shop where I got the doggy dress. Thermal Underwear is very important in Korea! When it's cold, don't forget your FAP! One of my favorite foods is Taiyaki, but sometimes the ones here are not fish shaped. This was a poop shaped one, and incidentally, the filling was chocolate flavor. It was actually surprisingly tasty. And last but not least, There's the Gachapon machines. Pokemon is really popular over here, so you see a lot of the same gachapons that Japan gets, but never see the light of day outside of Asia. Of course, I carry googly eyes with me for photo opportunities, so I felt compelled to spruce up this machine: Much better.
