I hate planes because they force you to stop tweeting while onboard. I tweet like mad, and it’s often on… well, for example, Chinglish with @lonniehodge and @sg_panda.

That latter guy — @sg_panda (Ma Huaqing Samuel) — was actually super-kind enough to spend three full days with me in Chengdu, a place hitherto unfamiliar to me. But the unfamiliarity vanished into thin air as soon as I caught sight of some quality Chinglish at Shuangliu Airport.

Now that I know…!   

PS: @sg_panda also told me that at Chengdu Airport, the default public announcement greeting is: Ladies and gentlemen, how do you do…!
