New To Town

Here’s some new stuff we’ve seen around town.

Hubs keeps saying that at any moment, he expects to see a T.G.I.Friday’s popping up on the square.

I mentioned earlier that Gymboree is opening soon. I went for a job interview there, but they haven’t called. I was thinking very, very part time (read: teaching one or two 45 minute classes per week – tops) they were thinking I would be a “member of the team”.

Here are some new products:
2009-04-07@17-57-04
mild or hot salsa 19.80 rmb ($2.91)
spaghetti sauce 18.50 rmb  ($2.72)
I think we’ll stick to making both of these from scratch.

2009-04-05@14-41-36
Maxwell House in a can 6.5 rmb ($0.96)

2009-04-05@14-40-27
Hershey’s Kisses 19.8 rmb ($2.91)

2009-05-01@17-05-25
Matchbox airplanes 39 rmb ($5.72)

2009-05-01@17-11-30
Cars 59 rmb ($8.65)

2009-05-01@17-05-08
Hot Wheels 18 rmb ($2.64)

2009-05-01@17-06-16
These are the same Hot Wheels that you can get in America. They just added a sticker on the back with the product translation.

We’ll keep you posted on T.G.I. Friday’s.
