Taipei

My trip to China finished with a visit to Taipei. Taipei is more prosperous than mainland China and you can see they have more discretionary income. They also have more children. China is at the point of just starting to grasp the concept of a hobby. I see great market for sports equipment. Sewing machine sales should increase, as will do-it-yourself tools and also home appliances. I stopped into an Ikea and it was filed with young couples passionately consuming. Video games are already a big hit with the youth and I chuckle when a see a parent dragging their 10 year old son along while he concentrates on his hand held game. On Sunday I saw some children’s event with a group called Momoa. It was the most obnoxious and nauseatingly cute event I have ever witnessed. (Put me in insulin shock). The main character was this young lady with a brightly rainbow colored extremely short dress with puffy petticoats and knee high white leather boats. It was like Disneyland decided to replace their Alice with the American McGee Alice. 

In the picture I am standing next to the god of good luck. With the New Year coming he is all over the place. This year News Years comes on the same day as Valentines Day. The Chinese has absorbed this holiday. (The god of god luck combines with the patron saint of pushy girl friends) The Country is starting to shut down. I went to an open market set up to sell things needed for the New Year. They had a booth with young ladies buying pretty girl things (Their version of Victoria Secrets I guess.) With Valentines and New Years on the same day I can see why the god of good luck has such a big grin.
