Strange Parts Year ago
It was a blast showing you around Huaqiangbei, Linus! Thanks for taking time out of your insanely busy schedule. Turns out my editor already has a decent editing rig, so I'll be giving this PC away to a lucky fan in an upcoming video. If you're interested in winning this PC (and some cool and rare Strange Parts swag) definitely keep an eye out for that video.

I will never suggest people to shop in that place. Only because the products are too abundant. You may spend 5 hours walking in there and bought nothing eventually. You don't even remember what you actually need at the very beginning. There is a way to find out which is the best from 3 products, there is no way to find out the best among 3 million.
That box organization at 10:54 though lol.

I never comment on videos, but this guy is such a fucking wanker with his alpha-nerd superiorism. It's just painful to watch or be around someone like this. Tone it down and try be a normal human being that people can relate to and converse with. His partner and children probably don't even exist by the way.

Just letting you know, most of the time if you notice a recognizable brand at one of these malls in China, it's still often fake as well.

Look at it from a bright side, you made a bad deal but at least you have not been run over by a tank on the streets of china, you did not end up in some concentration camp for "reeducation" and you survived the experience..

6:59 laptop, notebook is English, what do you mean ‘Chinese’? Only after the glasses saying ‘oh, notebook’, the ‘translater’ said ’對啊‘ is Chinese. P.S. the Chinese word means ‘right’ or ‘that’s right’

Sometimes, I’m not a great fan of something trying to say something using a non first language to say that, and got that wrong...... pinyin do not sound like English, you cannot read that using english. The pronunciation of ‘Hua’ should be rounder. Qiang should not have a strong ‘g’ but not qian and it shouldn’t be xian, and bei should be pronoun as a sound with a upper to lower and up again tone...... bei3 You said the name wrong twice... what the fuck, you didn’t say 華強北 but 挖翔杯(dig shit cup)。。。
