Someone smart told me that I’d probably spend the first year abroad analyzing every last inch of what is different. And then eventually, I’ll get adjusted and find things like these oddities completely normal and whatever no big deal. And then it will take me an entire year back in the States (or any other place) to realize these were incredibly weird in the first place.

Here’s to finding weird stuff normal!

baby hands
Because every mother needs a statue of what her baby might look like were he to be buried alive. By a company named Pearhead. Seen at Toys ‘R’ Us (pronounced Toys Russ).

wine
Ladies who lunch, take a load off. That Dior bag looks heavy. Seen at one of the zillions of malls.

duplos
Exactly the phrase I would have suggested to promote children’s toys in a children’s toy store. You read my mind. Seen at Toys Russ.

green lies
Keep telling yourself that, Causeway Bay.

happy socks

Now this, I can get used to. Favorite socks of all time, available with the swipe of an Octopus! I am my mother’s daughter.
