I came upon a blog called ‘Adrift in a sea of phlegm’ by Keir (I don’t know what is worse actually, being adrift here or being stranded). Keir calls a spade a spade, and I like the pictures and link collections on his blog. I found this picture of a convenience item list from a Beijing hotel room. I saw one a few years ago, which was almost exactly the same, but I did not have my camera with me at the time.
Seems there is still a lot of work to be done before the 2008 Olympics. But I must admit the Traveller’s mates are not too expensive. Guess they are Mongolian. Not sure though if 30 RMB is for the whole night.
A good one is the line ‘These product will be charged to your account according to your consumption’. I can see the scene on checking out the next morning: “What do you mean you charge me 15 RMB for a whole can of cunt cleaning spray? I only used about half of it!”
