Ni hao loyal readers, having just returned from yet another fantastic trip to one of my favourite countries I realise it might take me a while to trawl though the 1600 or so photos to write up my blog. So in the meantime, to keep you entertained here are a few photos of some amusing translations.

I'm sure the Chinese had much more amusement at my attempts to speak their language while I was there though, I know I certainly couldn't do any better on the translations.

You know I love China! But do you a know what the translation for 'halogen' is? You are probably the only person who might be able to help!

Poetic instructions

there is nothing poetic about it. The instruction in Chinese was merely passable, so never mind the translation.
