The Happiest Place On Earth!

No, not Disneyland, stupid. Pacific Mall in Markham, Ontario, Canada, just north of Toronto. If you die without having visited Pacific Mall, you will very likely burn in hell.

Here's a couple of articles culled from a local rag fancied by the hoi polloi, the first from 2006, the second from 2008, when promises of even bigger Asian malls started being made (if not necessarily kept):

Do they still have the shops selling dried shark fins hanging from the ceiling? I'm guessing it's less prominently displayed now.

Actually, upstairs, in Pacific Heritage Town--the little mini-mall built that's modeled after a Hong Kong night market--there's a place in the food court that sells shark fin soup and keeps a few fins in a display case behind the counter. I don't recall seeing any places with them hanging in plain sight, but then I'm usually not actively looking for them. I really should try it some day, just to say I did. ;)
