One Letter Short of… A S*** Hotel…

And I don’t mean that as in a hotel that’s rated three stars which begins with the letter S (although that’s for sure the case here).

Just take a look at this pic from Langfang, Hebei, to see what I mean…

If you allow the joke to show its crueler sides — I know what you might mean. “Welcome to S*** Hotel!”.

What It Should Read: WELCOME TO SHI YE HOTEL

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!
