You have to love the retail wars of Asia – nowhere else would you find, amongst the dozens of humongous overblown shopping precincts, a haunted mall, pitchblack inside during the day aside from the large hanging moon.

A pet shop with doggie Playboy bunny outfits, a Spiderman costume and multicoloured canine wigs completes the thrill.
