Hi Stella, Last time I was there I definitely didn't see quality, but that was 2 years ago. I heard a new multi-storey mall recently opened with only wedding dress shops so things may have changed...
{Follow my Facebook page!} I am rather specific when it comes to shampoos and usually bring Klorane products back from France, but with a limit of only 23kg, packing often means choosing between cheese, saucisson and good hair...

Hi there! back in my time, the Da Lu test was supposed to be about 2km long but I heard about new changes recently so you'll need to check that with the school. Back when I did it, the length and difficulty of the test was very variable: if the other candidates in your car fail, the examiner may ask you to drive longer or on the contrary might be in the mood to be more lenient (each examiner apparently has a quota of fail/pass he has to reach on every examination day). I drove less than 5 minutes while my friend drove for almost 15.
