Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Chinatown Fashion



When I saw this fascinating looking woman emerge from the depths of the "Asia Supermarket" with a cup of bubble tea in her hand. I wondered what other strange and wonderful things awaited me at the bottom of the stairs. I had Alice in Wonderland type visions dancing in my head. Then I went down the stairs and saw nothing out of the ordinary. I wish I would have just left this place to my imagination.
For some reason she reminds me of Mary Poppins.

  1. Interesting to be sure. I think it is the hat...or is it the dress.... ;)

    A Mary Poppins hat.

    You just never know what you will run into.

  12. Wow. Your comment over at the other blog site about Singapore did not disappoint. Bloghopping here immediately made me feel that you are, indeed, interested in how other people of other cultures live. That woman does look a bit odd.

    You took great pics, and spiced them with your imagination.

    Thanks for sharing,

  15. She seems to be quite posing for the picture! Didn't you even find the exquisite smells of Asian spices in that store?
    God bless you!

  22. My wife said in this way. "This photograph does it lively so that this Chinese Grandmother seems to talk to me at any moment". It is a splendid work.
