Made in China
God created the world, and the rest were Made in China.
China is very well-known for manufacturing most of the fake goods that we know today. We see fake gadgets, toys and clothing.
Yes, if China invented gunpowder, paper, first banknotes, tea, and all that crap, it is really a “fact” that “the rest were made in China.” Ironically, they’re the ones who currently imitate, not invent. Their East Asian neighbors (Japan and South Korea, that is) are actually defeating them.
Whenever everyone sees “Made in China,” what comes out from mind is “fake,” “counterfeit,” or worse, “knock-off.”
Fake things are everywhere, not even the USA can avoid such thing. In San Francisco, there are a lot of fake stuff you could find there (sorry if I don’t have a picture that would serve as proof), even in Singapore, that is. The worst part– most of these fake stuffs can always be found in flea markets. In the Philippines, flea markets are almost everywhere. Most genuine stuff are in Manila proper itself. In Cebu and Davao, that’s what I really don’t know about, but most genuine stuff can only be found in these developed areas.
How to identify if a mall’s a flea market…
…to be posted soon. 🙂
