Praying for Luxury

  1. Hi there,

    I found this "Prayer" in a book I am reading ("The Cult of the Luxury Brand - inside Asia's love affair with Luxury" by Radha Chadha and Paul Husband; it is excellent reading!) and found it rather funny:


    [FONT=&quot]Armani, which art in Landmark, hallowed be thy shoes.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Thy Prada come, thy shopping done, in Central as it is in Paris.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Give us this day our husband’s Visa gold card and have him forgive us our balance, as we forgive those who charge interest against us.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Lead us not into Mitsuko and deliver us from Wing On.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]For thine is the Chanel, the Gaultier and the Versace.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Amex.[/FONT]

    Landmark: A huge deluxe shopping mall in Hongkong
    Central: A business district in Hongkong with lots of deluxe shopping malls
    Mitsukoshi and Wing On: Department stores, not too highly regarded
