Taking the Effort to be Green Too Far...

Sorry about the text being a little too small to see! Let me quote the most important sentence from above:

"Please throw other wasters in the trash bin outside."

In other words, don't be a waster or we will waste you! Perhaps being green has gone too far?

I'm telling you, I don't even go around looking for these kinds of things! They just find me. (Note to self: Find a way to take that click-I'm-taking-a-picture sound off of iphone. It is awkward when taking pictures of Chinglish in a bathroom stall.)

Does it make sense?

A local store is selling this T-shirts. I'm guessing that it might be a good idea to ask a native English speaker to check your English before you print 10,000 of these babies. I think that they were wanting of instead of or. At least, I hope they were. Chinglish is alive and well!

A Super-Duper Supermarket!

A new Wong's Supermarket recently opened here in Kaohsiung. It has some really awesome features that most other grocery stores around here don't have. Actually, it's been called the "Superstar of Supermarkets."

Top notch quality!

For instance,
It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh. Just before it goes on, you hear the distant sound of thunder and the smell of fresh rain in the air.

When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the scent of fresh cut hay.

In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks and smoked ribs.

In the seafood department, the fresh, clean, crisp smell of the ocean and the sound of waves slapping the shoreline greets you.

When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle and the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.

The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked bread & cookies.

However, I've stopped buying toilet paper there...

(HaHaHa... Okay, I feel that I should confess that I ripped this off of another blog! Don't worry, I ask permission first and he then confessed that he actually ripped it off of an e-mail. However, if you would like to check out the blog of an AIMer with a pretty great sense of humor, just click right here.)

Quick Funny

The other day Chris and I were chatting and I discovered a totally nice way to say something not so nice! It was so amazing that I really must share. What was the sentence?

"Pardon me, it appears that you have lost your clue."

In other words,

"You ain't gotta clue!"

That's me, just trying to make the world a nicer place! (Just for the record, we were bantering and equally thought this sentence to be hilarious!)
