A few months ago, I finally got an iPhone after four years of using a cheap Nokia bar phone I bought when I was studying Mandarin. The best thing about owning a smartphone, in my opinion, is that I can now surreptitiously take photos in random places, like my pharmacy. It is absolutely fascinating. It’s tiny, but they have shelves and shelves filled with vitamins and over-the-counter medications in packaging that looks like it hasn’t been changed since the 1980s. I’m sure my pharmacists know I’m off snapping pics of all their wares while they fill my prescriptions… but, seriously, can you blame me? The place features some of the most surreal package design I have ever seen.
And these packages are just cute.
