Same Same...but Different Answered
Two years ago I spent my fall semester in Vietnam. While shopping in the markets I often heard the phrase "Same Same...but Different". This usually referred the knock-off North Face bags (mine fell apart after a month) and designer sunglasses that were, according to the vendors, just as good as the real thing, but a little different. Although knock-off often has a bad connotation associated with it, it really just means same same but different.
What types of things have you encountered in your everyday life that you've thought, "hey this is just like this other thing I tried"?
- the perfume I wear smells just like this designer perfume that is 3x more expensive
- this bands has a similar sound to this band; they're a little less known but their music is just as awesome!
- the city I live is a smaller/larger version than this other city I visited
you got the idea
