    I waited anxiously the appearance of the new episode on the site and checked all morning for it. Today you gave us quite a surprise, the return of Julie, even wondering if she is coming back.

    There are always very nice parts at the end of the show, so we can enjoy blunders during filming :) It’s a unique approach and you’re doing your job as editor very well. Not to say about the quality of information given here by girls in a manner that is at least professional. You could anytime start your career in television.

    Tiger is a cleverly named word for the shop. It is not pronounced like the cat but with a silent g ( Tijer ) That’s the same as a tenner ( tier) in Danish as all the goods cost 10 or 20 kr.

    Another well known shop for cheap stuff is Søstrene Grene. It’s quite an experience to visit one of their shops.
