Really Made In China

Sure, a lot of what we buy is made in China, but you wouldn't necessarily know it. A razor looks like a razor, a T-shirt from the Gap is neutral. In Penang, we ran across several stores selling Chinese goods.  How did we know? Take a look.

The stores seemed to be a cross between a cultural repository and Party City.  They're stuffed with things that could be used as general home decoration, icons or social club theme room fodder.  One thing the items weren't is subtle.

A typical store entrance, screaming for us to check the place out. Enticing figures.

A stuffed store of stuff. Whoa! How much space do you think we have in our house? And we were planning on not checking bags on the way back home...
