It seems that most (it reads "most" not "all") high end brands and products are from ang mo countries. Things like fine watches, furniture, high end audio products, cars, aeroplanes, fashion, bags ... ...

Very few Asian products are high end one huh??

Lexus?

All the Japan brand stuff? A lot of Japan brands are quite high-end you know. For the rest of the other countries, I think a bit hard.

if you are thinkin of sports car like posh and lambo, then nope, one of the reason is that jap cars all are speed limited. (one of their rules I tink)

Lotus was bought over by photon M'sia tho.

mabbe if cultural differences, jap's have always wanted thig economical and efficient, Europeans are more to luxury and comfort while US is more to bigger-is-better. China is like "if you can do it, so can I type" :bsmilie:

Japanese food is fine dining in ang moh countries.

Lexus is a luxury brand.

Sony too. ;)

As for "High Life" and "The Peak" magazines, don't get suckered in by them. They get PAID to feature items.

Actually, the reason I asked is because when I am amazed by how much effort is put into a Swiss watch...the heartwork, quality, the precision.... I dun think many Japanese watches can match a Geneve or Swiss origin fine watch...

I wonder if Asian can one day make something like that with high artistic value, fine products ... not mass produced kinda stuff...

When we talked about German cars or something like that, we know it is :thumbsup:

That's because your point of reference is based on US/Europe lifestyle/culture. Even from the clothes you wear are european standards.

Jap tea ceremony not considered "fine dining"? You've heard of caviar, but hav you tried jap's bluefin tuna sushi?
