Hi everyone. In lieu of no Chinglish for a while, here’s a whole bunch:
Don’t just push some
Be confiscated, yo
While at the bank, make copies at this Duplicator!
Trapped in Wuzhen
Just too much. As a biciclyst, I thank the police for the kindly Reminder
Hey, just because I’m taking it easy with blogging (am I really?) doesn’t mean no more Chinglish!
A bit from my Guangzhou trip:
As a vegetarian I find it very offensive to eat a pig bag
Simple, accurate, but I find funny for some reason
Just at a restaurant-pub. Listen to the boss!
After a too-long hiatus, here are a few signs from a garden complex near my home:
And some various shops,
Cheers to all!
Not much finds this weekend, but I did come across this toilet sign.
Isn’t it good to feel special?
Thanks to martalivesinchina.wordpress.com for this weekend’s Chinglish donations. Go and follow her blog, it’s Spain meets China!
Toilet facilitates and fair wairning…
Its not much, but here’s a random advertisement I saw.
Let’s all go shopping.
On a recent trip to Guangzhou, I came across this sign for Braziliam Waxing.
Relatively minor typo. But then again, if you do want some grooming done down there then wouldn’t you want them to pay attention to details…?
Recently, I went on a short trip to Hong Kong. I was just there for a couple of days, but I did find a few random pictures to share.
Like Taiwan, Hong Kong is supposed to be more modern and developed than mainland China. Yet if you seek it out, there are misspellings to discover…
And an important sticker
Dessevt spelled wrong. I’m trying here, it’s HK!
Finally, that’s not funny that’s cool. Power to the People!!
Ring in the new year with poetic bad translations…
For this week’s post, we have a typical poetic sign at a park about cherishing sensitive life of flowers and grass, and a hat at the mall I wanna buy:
Maybe next week some more… or maybe not…
Welcoming you to visit ever more…. just push…….
I recently traveled to the city of Xiamen in Fujian Province, one of the four original Special Economic Zones. Just as Shenzhen was built up to foster investment from overseas Chinese people (and Zhuhai ala Macau as well), Xiamen was propped in relation to Taiwan.
Although Taiwan is relatively a bit far away, there is the nearby island of Kinmen which is administrated by the ROC government of Taiwan. A small town only thirty minutes away by ferry, it is a nice and charming place to visit and really feels different from mainland China.
Here are some rare Taiwanese Chinglishes, and various other funny pictures:
Note the complex traditional characters 繁體字
Always helpful advice on the urinal. Ummm… cute?
AWWW look up close it says BEAGLE BRIGADE! Cutest port of entry ever. Hard to take a good pic though
OK I won’t through my garage into the sea
Back to the mainland, shops
More toilet fun. What gender is that?
