I went to China and I bought...

Wednesday, March 06, 2013

Panda earrings

Rose earrings

A teeny tiny hair clip

A scarf

A dress (flipping XXXL.)

A traditional tea ceremony set

A mug for loose leaf tea.

Chinese sweets. At least, I think they're sweets. It's all in Chinese.

Fat panda!

Lychee tea, jasmine tea, pu-erh tea, and ginseng oolong tea.

A painting of Winter Flowers. Flowers symbolise a beautiful woman, but these flowers (because they bloom in Winter) also stand for a strong-willed, independent woman.

So now you see why I feel so poor! I also bought presents for my friends and family, but if I uploaded those I'd be here all day.

    The Chinese sizes must start with a S being the equivalent of a size 2 - in toddlers! You made some beautiful choices in your souvenirs!

  You got lots of Oriental things. There are few panda items.
I can't see the writings on the "sweets". So, I can't tell what they are exactly.
Love the dress and painting though. Hope you enjoy the tea while drinking them from your new tea cup/set.

    those are all amazing items. you have wonderful taste.
i especially love the painting i hope you got it to symbolize who you are. because we hold both sides inside ourselves.
you should blog about the sweets as you try them so we can experience with you the culture and imagine the taste :)

    I love seeing your photos. We went to China a few years ago. I had bought 2 of the jackets, they were just a little small on me. But now that I have lost weight I can wear them. Wish I had gotten one of the dresses then, but did not.

    The clothing in China is bigger than the clothing in Thailand. I was in Thailand with a size 2 friend, and she was buying XXL clothing. On the plus side, in pretty much all of Asia, the norm is to have everything made for you. I have a couple beautiful tops I had made in Thailand that are now too big. When I get to my goal weight I may have to have them re-cut.

I love your fat panda!

    Fat panda is too adorable! I have a fat cat stuffed animal that I love to pieces, too. Many years ago, I went to Chinatown in San Francisco and I wanted a traditional Chinese silk shirt. It was the shirt version of your dress, no sleeves, and purple. I'm pretty sure mine was also a XXXL. Talk about sadness! I felt so defeated and, well, FAT buying that shirt. I cut the tag out of it immediately so I wouldn't have that big, ugly XXXL staring me in the face whenever I wore it.
