Lost in Translation - assorted Engrish

While trying to stave off my insomnia last night I discovered that Lonely Planet (via their Facebook page) is having a "Lost in Translation" contest for funny signs people have photographed while traveling. I have so many hilarious Engrish signs from my 5+ years in Asia that I had to check the fine-print if they allowed multiple entries!  A lot of them are really childish, but make me laugh every time:

No, I did not try the food!!  (Phuket, Thailand)
They should fire their proof-reader. (Phuket, Thailand)
Eww! That's gross, Tokyo.
Spotted in Patong, Phuket - 'nuff said.
Cutting-edge fashion in Chinatown, Singapore
Wash your hands after using that phone. (somewhere in Satun Province)
Thai people have funny names.

Maybe it's time to hire a new chef.


  1. Over the years there have been many different Michael Kors Outlet Store launched with some being more successful than others. Even the Michael Kors Outlet that did not reach the dizzying heights of success as some of Michael Kors's best sellers were still very, very well made leather handbags. One such Michael Kors Outlet Store Online that became a fashion icon was the Michael Kors Wristlet Sale.
