As I promised here are a few more pictures from the oriental side of Newcastle (more of a street than an end really!), specifically ‘Wing Hong Chinese Supermarket’ where you can find a variety of weird and wonderful things which I doubt you’ll find in Sainsbury’s any time soon!
One of many shop’s in Newcastle’s China Town but probably the only one worth having a look round if you’re not Chinese!
Behold a variety of different ‘Hello Kitty‘ branded pastas – this is one fad which doesn’t look likely to end any time soon! This said, I find the thought of eating cat-shaped macaroni rather disturbing!
Hell Money – according to sources this is burn as an offering when you die. Apparently it’s name was a bit of a mistake as those who called it so thought ‘Hell’ meant ‘afterlife’ in English! (In case you were wondering, no I don’t have blue fingernails – it’s not my hand!).
I spotted this in a window of a health shop nearby – it begs the question of weather ‘Slim Tea’ is actually any thinner than your average cup, and how exactly does that work?! What I especially like are the photo testimonials of people who have hair regeneration therapy just below the sign and happy people who have lost weight just above it!
