Wait, how much is that?!

Before I came to Korea, I was under the impression that EVERYTHING in Asia is cheap!   Quite the contrary actually... Take this add, for instance.  I received this in my mailbox today, and couldn't believe the prices!  Holy shamolies!  

These cotton shirts are $262.00 and $124.00, and they're ON SALE!!  

These cotton dresses, while they are BCBG, are still outrageously expensive; even on SALE!  
Red plaid dress: $191.00
Black and white dress: $148.00

Now you have to be a serious coffee or rice lover to spend this type of cash on these two items! 
Coffee maker: $2,449
Rice maker: $265

I never thought, in a million years, that I would be shopping on e-bay all the way over here in Korea, but it's true.  I just received my first purchase in the mail yesterday!  Can you blame me?  This place is a money pit!
