From where?? To be honest, I had to check the map as well! Xiamen (pronounce: Shah-men) is a city in the South East of China. The city played a big role in the country’s shipping industry and is well-known for the university and the Buddhist temple Nanputuo. I also paid a visit to the little island Gulangyu. I ran into some pretty interesting things… Check it out!
Asians love food! Especially seafood. Lobster, sea snails, shrimps. The fresher the better.
In the west we like love ourselves some spray tans, bronzing powders and sun beds. But in the east it’s all about whitening products. Face masks, hand cream and even deodorant have whitening in them. Most of the mainstream brands have a special range for Asia.
