Orange County “O.C”, China?


This has to be the strangest thing I’ve seen in awhile. Apparently China has recreated the Southern Californian neighborhood outside Beijing (wasn’t this an X-Files episode…?). From the pictures, it definitely looks like Irvine or Laguna Niguel. They say even the interior appliances and Pool tables (where real OC guys do business) are imported from the U.S., which is kind of bazaar – I thought that stuff was made over there in the first place? Anyhow, I think they should make a Chinese version of that cheesy TV show “The Real Housewives of Orange County, China”. And don't translate it, which would be very entertaining and likely better than the original.
