Road Names and Wrapping Paper

A few observations:

Each and every road here seems to have many different spellings.

For instance, Tun Hwa Rd. could also be Tunhua Rd., Dun Hua Rd., or even Dunhua Rd., making it challenging to Google map directions!

Also, vendors seem to take a lot of care when wrapping purchases. A simple paperback book I bought was placed into a lovely high-quality paper bag, folded over at the top and taped shut. The chocolates were presented in a golden bag, sealed shut with an engraved sticker, and then placed into an even fancier bag with handles. The flowers were carefully arranged, taped together, wrapped in paper and then in cello so that water could be added. Such attention to detail!
