What was the one souvenir you regretted buying even after all these years ('gee, I really don't have a need for that and it cost a bomb!').

Was it a life-sized wooden statue from Africa or something else?

A broken leg and surgery was the worst souvenir ever. I was too cheap to change the battery on my keychain flashlight, so I tripped in the dark and broke my leg in a pothole. Luckely my insurance company paid the bill for the surgery and the flight - and it did cost a bomb.

This isn't the WORST thing I ever bought on impulse, but it just doesn't really do the place I bought it any justice....I bought a vibrating wire head massager from the View Point in Hong Kong. Now it is quite cool, although I don't use it much, but it doesn't really say Hong Kong to me really.

A Penis shape (balls is the) ash tray from Bali, to a male fren to discourage him from smoking (no offense to other smoker). Second taught, I'll just get another one. Yes. It still in my store room.
