Wendy, Yifan and I visited IKEA this afternoon, or to be more exact, attempted to visit IKEA but failed because of the crowd.
Below is the picture of the people lining up at the 30 counters, to pay for their items. Yifan and I got an ice cream each and left.
Small IKEA! Expensive IKEA!
About 15 years ago, when IKEA just opened its first store in Shanghai, it was a very small one at the first and second floor of an office building near its current Xujiahui Store. At that time, everything seems so expensive to me (as a college student). They WERE expensive. The Billy Bookcases cost a big portion of my first month salary in 1999, and now, it cut its price to half, due to increase of its sale volume, and maybe change of supplier.

Look at this rain drops on the window – just like the default iPhone desktop. It is raining heavily now!
OK. That’s it. Yifan is scream and pulling me out to walk in the rain. Well. Good idea. We are going.
