Your Weekend Chinglish

It’s not easy writing one’s memoirs, consistently producing something decent to read multiple times a week. What else may I share with some interested readers out there, I asked myself… got me thinkin…

Hence I decided to start a new series: every weekend I will post some of those “Chinglish” pics I like to take from time to time. I have quite the collection. Goes over well elsewhere. What do you think, funny?

If you aren’t aware of the Chinglish phenomenon, here’s the introduction. It is becoming more and more international in modern China, and they like to write signs and menus with English translations. Sometimes they don’t go as planned, and brilliant hilarity ensues. Enjoy.

And no disrespect meant to my Chinese friends. This is a very cool aspect of modern China, the random poetry that comes out of attempts at translation. Most of us expats are saddened when they clean up and replace with these signs with boring good translations. We love Chinglish, it’s great!

Star baby, so cool. Wasn’t that a David Bowie song?

    • oops…it should have read ‘We received a flyer from a local supermarket which had a big sale on ‘The Crabs.’ Man, I should proof-read! However, it is kind of ironic that I made several mistakes while commenting on a Chinglish article! 🙂

  2. I did laugh – they’re funny.

    My gym membership had a flyer where they say what they have and such. It’s not so much chinglish but just a typo. It meant to say folk dance but it said fool dance. xD

    Well, at least I think it’s a typo.
