    Buying books by weight is still a thing in China, I saw it last time I was in Hangzhou (a year or so ago)

    Drinking beer on the street legally

    Bars that stay open till sunrise

    Flying lanterns (at mid autumn festival)

    A monkey taking a person's bag

    Hearing the word "alighting"

    Reading the word "Philatelic"

    Saying the word "mate" to a friend
