pretty in prints

when we were in hong kong two weeks ago, too bad we didn't get to see this, a double-decker tram all wrapped in an orla kiely print. it would've been really cool to ride this... we love her stuff, although we don't own any. we've seen a few items in rustan's—we wonder if they're still there...? anyway, if ikea ever decides to set up shop here, they might want to promote the opening by doing what they did in japan: deck out a whole train in ikea products. check out the kobe portliner monorail, which had each car wrapped in an ikea print, while the inside was completely furnished with more ikea prints. this was up for a month to promote the opening of the ikea store in port island last april—so sadly it is no more :-( wouldn't you love to see an MRT train painted in these crazy colors and prints? now what pattern can be wrapped around the edsa line? hmmmm...
