Premade food. Oh my lord the premade food at the supermarkets. You can get fantastic microwave meals here, and they go on special for less than the equivalent of $4 a lot of the time.
Carrot sticks - I love carrot sticks, and hate making them. The solution? Ready-made carrot batons!
Opening hours and free takeout delivery - hungry at 10pm on a Thursday evening? No problem, you can choose from Chinese, Indian, Italian...and get it delivered for free!
Fashion - Londoners are STYLING. And they don't care if you wear weird things.
|And they like to stuff penguins, apparently.|
Good fresh fruit and veg - I have to say, it's a bit of a roulette wheel here. I've had some fabulous fruit and also some really rubbish overpriced stuff.
Good Chinese food - I don't know what it is about these British people, but it's been a real struggle to find really nice, decently priced Chinese (and more importantly, Hong-Kong style food...)
|Okay, so this is ACTUALLY from transit in Hong Kong...|
Space - back yard? Detached house? Forget about it unless you have a cool couple of million pounds (or don't live in London...)
|Look, these houses AREN'T all stuck together!|
These are just some of the things I notice, but it also makes me wonder - what are the things that other people notice when they move countries...?
