Picture of the Day: Fake Windows

Check out the windows on the side of the building
Ah, China... the land of the fake.

You can get everything fake, from designer handbags and clothing to furniture. It even extends to fake food, from soy sauce and black sea moss to even eggs. How you even make fake eggs and make a profit doing that is nuts.

And so we love this picture of an apartment building in Qingdao, Shandong province where windows have been painted on the side of the building to enhance the aesthetics of this low-cost accommodation than to fool potential buyers.

While some wondered if government officials were cutting corners to save money, others queried if it was the builders trying to cheat the authorities to increase profits.

But local officials said the painted windows were there to decoration and that they were painted where the elevator shafts are.
The windows are artistically painted, but aren't functional

However the latest now is that the authorities have asked the developers to rectify the painted windows as they have been "misunderstood" and caused "an adverse social effect".

Too bad. It was going to become the next tourist attraction in Qingdao...
