Shopping Brazil

Malls are called 'shopping'. Like our mall is called Shopping Guararapes (Jaboatao dos Guararapes is our city's name). Recife's mall is Shopping Recife. But it's really just a mall. I don't think people say "Hey, you want to go to the mall?" They say "Hey, you want to go to Shopping Guararapes?".

Now, on the other hand, I'm still having a hard time understanding people, so that could easily be way wrong. In fact, it probably is. But I like to think that's what they're saying. Other funny things while shopping are:

Yes, it was the most expensive paper towel brand. What a...uhh...what's the word?
The picture takes away all the fun. There's no reference to the size of these. They were like 5 gallon buckets of margarine.
Green or orange toilet paper? Why? Or, more appropriately, why not!
