Xiang Yang Market Lingo | Shanghai Shopping

Although destined to disappear in May 2006 the Xiang Yang Market is still the IPR landmark of Shanghai. Whatever knockoff you are looking for, you will find it. I took my visiting friend there and once again was intrigued by the sales language used.

“Watch Bag”, “Bag Watch”

My friend, carrying his daypack, asked me after a while.

“Are they telling me to watch my bag. How thoughtful”

    We didn’t pay much attention to the dvd’s. We got out as quick as can and went to the wet market next to it.

    Showed him the fish, the turtles and the toads:)
