Chinglish lesson – 巴

Today’s Chinglish comes with a free short lesson.

The character 巴 “ba” is often used in phonetic translations. It can stand for “bar” (酒吧 jiuba – alcohol bar) as well as “bus” (巴士 bashi – bus, simply phonetically)

So you see, honest mistake here.

    Oh how I miss Carrefour. Shopped there every now and then in Singapore and Malaysia, and loved how food and furniture was sold side by side. Almost everyone I’ve met pronounces Carrefour differently.
