Chinglish 101

Last weekend, I finally found some of my Chinglish photo collections—after 3 years of looking for them! Yeah, that long. I’ve tried to search them in my 1tetra gigabyte time capsule but to no avail. I had to open ALL the photos I had taken in China (that’s 8 years of living there!) which took me quiet a while. It turned out I didn’t change their digital filenames for easy access.

So, here’s Chinglish 101 (a.k.a. first batch) for you. Pardon their quality. I wasn’t a camwhore then when most of these photos were taken. 😉

Chinglish, by the way, is a coined from Chinese + English. It’s a translation lost unintentionally.

    I have a couple of these, too. But, you more than 60? That must have been many years in China!
