...and I thought I had seen it all...

This afternoon Matilda and I went to see Mamma Mia...we felt like a girls afternoon out and couldn't think of anything better to do. The film was great fun, we loved it...I remembered all of the lyrics to the soundtrack (as did many others in the audience judging from the singing) and it was fun spotting the ABBA cameos. I want to swim in the sea surrounding the Greek Islands now, it was turquoise and glittery, just beautiful.

Afterwards we wandered through the Asian Grocery Store near the cinema. I love those places, always full of strange & wonderful ingredients...we do quite a bit of shopping there. I was perusing the toiletries/personal hygiene section and look what I found...

PINK NIPPLE CREAM...!!!



Utterly bizarre...!!! Are pink nipples desired by Asian women...or perhaps Asian men..?? There was also various unguents to whiten armpits and facial skin, to get rid of stretch marks and cellulite, to whiten teeth and burn fat.

...and I thought I had seen it all...

And yes, for those who are curious, I did buy a tube (on sale at $7.50)...I just had to...it captured my sense of the absurd. Not sure if I will ever try it out though. Perhaps I can use it on one nipple and have the other as the "control" sample.

Will keep you posted.

Haaaaaaaaaaa! I'm telling my husband about this. He will crack up! Had I been in your place, I would have bought a tube as well - if only to blog on it!

So other than changing the color, what is the purpose? The only nipple cream I've ever used is to keep mine from falling off when nursing, so I can't imagine wanting pink stuff.

Visiting via WTBAY... this post has just made my day. Hilarious! I would have bought a tube too... or at the very least taken a photo so I could blog about it later.

I'm WTBAY-ing :) That is hilarious. I thought I'd seen it all too, and I live here in one of those big open Asian stores with 1 billion people shopping in it...I haven't seen the pink nipple cream though. Too much.Too much. Now next time I go shopping and one of those store clerks keeps harrassing me incessantly, I'm going to ask for Pink Nipple Cream. That'll shut 'em up....
