■ ITEM PART OF CHINGLISH ALERT! SUB-BLOG
■ ITEM FIRST POSTED BEFORE 01 JUL 2011
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.
Apparently, in Chengdu, you need not wait for a taxi; you just have to wat for it.
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…!
