There are some things that you just can't find in the western worl
I was eager to start this topic because anyone that has traveled to a Western country knows that there are just some things about Asia that stand out above the rest.

For example:

Hello Kitty <--- this site has so many other interesting posts!

Although I'm not a crazy Hello Kitty fan. It's still astonishing to see the themes people are willing to put on.

Hello Kitty is just a marketing concept for everyone. She's stylish and she wins the hearts of 10 year old girls. I personally prefer some of the other sanrio characters. Why should only one be mainstream?? Haha, Kerropi and Batz Maru died out pretty quick, but in my opinion, they're cooler than the Kitty. Just saying.

The ability to get ANYWHERE without being able to drive a car. Maybe it's cause I live in Shanghai, but transportation is so easy. You've got your taxis, your metro lines that sprawl all over the city, bikes, walking... and malls spawn everywhere so it's super convenient. I'm going to miss this when I go to college ;__;

Are these supposed to be things you can't find/do in the West?  So far I haven't read anything I can't do or buy in New York or San Francisco, Toronto or London... including the part about public transport and all things Sanrio... just saying.
