Picture of the Day: Monetary Dreams

The other day I walked down Dawanglu, towards Shin Kong Place, a fancy upscale mall. But next to it was this strange set up for Christmas.

It was a crude reproduction of a Disney-like castle complete with a prince dancing with either Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty in front surrounded by Christmas trees.

And on the castle in red Chinese characters it says "hua mao zhong xin" or "Prosperous Trade Center".

Perhaps they are hoping that with such a fairytale set up, economic dreams may come true.

this is a mixture of vanity and ignorance sprinkled with poor taste commercialism.
