Fun with Chinglish: No Noising

I looked through my photo folders, and found another couple “Chinglish” examples. This one was installed at the Expo 2010 in Shanghai advising people who were standing in line for one of the exhibitions to only use “Polite language and no noising!” Note: When posting anything in the Fun with Chinglish section, I don’t mean to show disrespect towards anything or anyone in any way.

Fun with Chinglish: Stand Still

Well, today’s sample may not have an actual mistake, but I always love the concern for the people’s well-being you can find on signs around here. This sign was posted in Hong Kong for the users of the escalators.

Fun with Chinglish: Let’s Enjoying

Got you another sample from Hong Kong. I loved this one as soon as I saw it on a window of a store in downtown Hong Kong.

Fun with Chinglish: Enjoy You Summer

I could hardly believe it, but with all its “britishness” I did find some Chinglish when I was in Hong Kong, lately. Here’s my first sample, that I found on the sign of a store.

Fun with Chinglish: Do Littering

I’ve got another perfect Chinglish example today. Found this one on the subway in Shenzhen on my way from the border of Hong Kong to the airport. Need I say more?

Fun with Chinglish: Let’s Afforest Together!

I love the new signs our school has put up recently all over campus! What would life be without the little tokens of amusement we find all around us? This one reads: “School likes our home. Let’s afforest together!” I’m just glad, no one really cares about this suggestion, or we quickly wouldn’t find our way home with all the trees popping up everywhere!

Fun with Chinglish: Keep off the water!

  Sign reads: “Keep off the water, caution danger.” If you consider getting wet as some kind of danger, then it surely is advisable that you keep your hands “off” the water. Or am I overlooking something that can be found somewhere in the less-than-knee-deep water which might cause harm …?

Fun with Chinglish: Don’t Break The Flowers

Yet another sign that has newly been put up on campus. It says: “Don’t break the flowers!” Let me draw your attention to the overwhelming amount of flowers surrounding this sign ;-). Yes, you really don’t want to break any flowers, should you be lucky enough to find some!
