If you really love Christmas, Come on and let it snow! There was no snow on my Christmas Day, seeing as I was in sunny Taiwan. Yay.
Fortunately that meant I was getting good presents as contrary to popular opinion, Taiwan is the best shopping destination *jeremy clarkson pause* ...in the world.
Yes that's right. A tiny island nation that some say is part of China has the worlds best shopping.
So when I (metaphorically) ripped the wrapping paper off my presents, I was sure that it would be good. *Jeremy Clarkson pause* ...I was right.
I now had in my posession a pair of red wayfarer glasses with clear lenses and I was in love! For about ten seconds until my dad laughed at me (my own father!) and my brother keeled over, choking. My other presents were ripped grey jeans, a checked coat with zipper hems (!!), a red coat, a mini laptop, and a japanese magazine that I can't read-I truly am cursed when it comes to magazines. Why can't I speak Japanese?! WHY OH WHY
Some pictures of it's incredible oddness:
How many Vogue editorials would have a bespectacled model biting into a huge bar of chocolate in the Accesories section? More to the point, see the awesome name? FUDGE. LIKE THE FOOD. I mean, I'm sure none of the models inside have ever actually EATEN fudge judging by their thinness, but still, what a cool name. It evokes memories of fudgie-ness. It's not often a magazine does that.
Before I finish, I'd just like to apologise for the despicable quality of the photos. And also my Top Gear references. That show is addictive, I tell you, addictive. Also, if there are any fellow Top Gear fans, just go to Youku and type in Clarkson Island. Then laugh.
Thank you, thank you very much,
