I was walking down Xinyi Rd towards Yongkang St (you know, where Ice Monster used to be until last week) when I came upon these fascinating oyster curtains outside of a construction site.

I wonder what they are for? A good luck charm of some sort? Just pure decoration? Someone really loves their shellfish? Please enlighten me if you know!

I also saw these cute birdies in a bamboo cage. Ron’s family has kept birds as pets for quite a while, so he knows how to talk to them, but unfortunately I was alone, so I just waved at them and continued on my way.
