Engrish / Chinese Insanity #1

Asia in general is known for their… unique… ways of translating things into English. Store names, product slogans, t-shirts… you name it. If you’re unsure what I’m referring to, feel free to go to Engrish.com. If you are sure what I’m referring to, you might already be there. It’s a great site – not to poke fun, mind you, but belly laughing a few times is always good for the soul.

Since I’ve been here, I’ve already seen quite a few instances of said Engrish. I’ve been recording it for my own amusement, but it occurs to me that you, the good strong reader, might want to be amused as well. And so we’re going to make this a semi-regular installment here on Nick in Asia.

Any advice/suggestions will always be listened to.
Now please enjoy:

I saw the following hats at the Yingchaun Rd. night market. Failing to purchase one is a regret I will carry always.

Engrish - 1
