Heilongjiang’s Model of Civilized Chinglish Windows…?

To Heilongjiang, an uncivilized window would be one where it’d be dirty, rotten, smashed, and full of obnoxious Chinglish.

Either that, or…

At times, the Chinglish here can just be amazing. If all you are reduced to doing in the “provincial tourist profession” is the creation of “models of civilized windows”… then…

Hey, here’s one thing I hope Heilongjiang and in particular, Harbin, can make a little better: “rail things”. Such as a get a proper HSR in order and connect the city with the Metro.

Makes far more sense than doing your models of civilized windows…

Gelivable Chinglish in Harbin!

Talk about the most gelivable, or “cool” (in Chinglish), hotel!

I’m now in Harbin with wife Tracy on a Chinglish teaching assignment (no joke: the Chinglish book landed me a month-long teaching assignment in northeastern China’s wilderness). Our school is but a stone’s throw from the — gelivable hotel.

That is some seriously ungelivable (“un-cool”) Chinglish, I must say…

On the second day of lessons, we had about ten enthusiastic Chinglish students already. So yep, there is Chinglish interest up here!
