Some interesting cultural differences I have been discovering lately:
1. I can't seem to find tampons in this country - they just use pads I guess...
2. I saw an informercial for a skin whitening cream - yes, to make one whiter. It showed all these depressed, beautiful, brown Asian girls who, when applying this cream, tada! turned beautifully pale. Ironic?
3. Whole shrimp - just pop the heads off, peel, and enjoy - beware the head juices though, they squirt with a vengeance!
