Before we move on to the subject of the wonders of SE Asian signage, I just want to let you all know that I am alive and well, and completely overloaded with turkey and starchy veggies. And with that, may I send a big Happy Thanksgiving shout out to my Canadian readers!
Anyway, this post is short and (hopefully) sweet, just like my time left at home...one more week in Canada people, and I am on my way back to Denmark. When I get back on European soil I will have plenty of time to spice up the blog, and hopefully keep you all entertained in one way or the other this Fall. Now, on to the hilarious signs of SE Asia....
Not a day goes by in Southeast Asia, or at least in Thailand and Cambodia, where you don't run into a sign translated into English that makes you burst out in fits of laughter, or at the very least, scratch your head. Here are some amusing and/or confusing signs I ran into while on my trip.
|This one was in our room at The Yellow Guest House, Siem Reap, Cambodia. Not exactly what I would a call a comforting entrance into your hotel room.|
|I've heard plenty of good things about Thai massages (happy endings anyone?), but this just looks down right painful.|
|This sign on the back of a public toilet stall really had me confused.|
|Does this sign mean it's only visitors to Thailand that pickpocket or are they just more dangerous than Thai ones?|
|Rules of using the underground. Some are common sense, but others, like no balloons, make no sense to me.|
|A Thai microwave. No popcorn or baked potato buttons here.|
|Drinks at these prices, truly is a happy day!|
If you thought these were entertaining and just can't get enough, check out Megan's post on the signs she encountered there, over at A Suitcase and Stilettos. Oh, and while you are there, you might as well just follow her and read all of her posts because she is pretty much the coolest blogger/real person I have met in a long time!
