Zhuhai Chinglish!

Happy Chinese New Year!


I’ve seen a lot of goats lately…

Just got back from Zhuhai yesterday, a tourist beach town not far from here. Bordering the former Portugese colony of Macau, Zhuhai is also a Special Economic Zone but does not equal the hustle and bustle of Shenzhen’s metropolis. We went to a hot springs resort and had a lot of fun.

And, getting out of the big city helps to find a \lot more hilarious mistranslations.

Especially menus. Can’t you just taste that authentic Cantonese cuisine of pig brain and bullfrog?

I remain a vegetarian, more inspired than ever.

Presenting: Zhuhai Chinglish


Mmm hot dog bowel


Green hometown is nice


Bacteria, okay…..


Germs, appetizing


Beef balls pee, yeah! Not too mention the rest


chocolate gram force, I think I saw that cartoon before


Safety first, no spinning at the pier


Good to know

  1. I asked my husband about the ‘bacteria’ dish and he said that they use the same character for (some) mushrooms and bacteria, the meaning depends on context. These are some really ghetto translations. Amusing, though!
