光光灯 The bling bling on my fan

Posted by Lantian October 26, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

Today, was one of those days where I really didn't "get" China.

This day has ended with me now noticing, my fan has some bling bling.

What do I mean? Well, I have this cool remote control fan, the kind that circulates air around. I have a little remote control for it. On the remote, it has a button for 彩灯 cai deng. I have no idea what 'cai' means, I just guessed the sound of that character, and just typed it here, hey and I got it right!, but anyway, this button makes a light on my fan blink, it's got a cover of about two inches in diameter. The light starts out red, then turns to blue/purple, then it starts to blink. Then it fades back to red, and then starts all over again.

Huh? Does this serve any purpose? Is it for me to send out a distress signal if I am in bed and can't get up? Is it to placate kids? Is it just for fun?! Anybody know?

我的风向有一个灯,叫彩灯。这个灯有什么用?我真想不出来。。! ;) 

I bet YOU don't have a remote control for bling bling.
