Chinese Food

Just returned from a wonderful holiday in China, and of course enjoyed some wonderful cuisine.

However sometimes all was not clear as these photos will prove!

I'm still a bit jet lagged so I thought I would keep it simple so, this is just a small taster of a better blog to come, I hope!

The local Chinese will never be quite the same again.

I hope you find this as funny and as intriguing as I did. In case you are wondering, no we didn't order any of the above lol. Well what would you have chosen?

My children are learning Mandarin at school. I often wonder how they sound to those who really know the language, as they 'practice' what they know when we go to Chinese restaurants:) I think that the Chinese language must be more poetic or perhaps complex than English - especially when looking at these translations! The mind boggles but I'd have gone with the washbasin option of that collection I think;) LOL I'm sure we're all inagreement that there is a bit of a worry of just what part of a sheep might have been presented to us from the translation of the rods;)

PS It would be lovely if someone who can read Cantonese or Mandarin could tell us just what the menu really was offering:):)

Welcome back Jacqui, I can't wait to read more about your adventures!
