I love how dirty Chinatown is.
Before you take that in a kinky way, what I mean is I love how gritty, how organic, how real it feels. I love the no-nonsense hustle and bustle, the constant chatter of harsh dialects I can't quite understand. It reminds me so much of home in Taipei.
And no I don't usually go "grocery shopping" in dresses like these, but maybe I will start doing that. The odd glances we received while shooting were kind of fun. :)
