Signese Revival 20

One fairly random photo of Chinese characters in action, per week, until sometime in 2018. And perhaps longer if I'm encouraged. Those who want to contribute their own random photos of Chinese characters are welcome, just get in touch and I'll add you to the contributor list so you can post directly, from computer or phone.

 

This was by Soong Ching Ling's old residence, part of which I think doubled up as barracks, perhaps guarding various high-ranking locals.

Restaurant Menu: Guiyang 2011

This place was a pretty basic operation.  The 老板 saw me taking a photo of their wall menu (with a camera! not a smartphone) and told me to hang on a minute while he went in the back to fish out one of these.

 

You kind of get the feeling they made the table and then just came up with dishes until it was filled up.

If only I knew then what I know now... I'd be all over the 折耳根炒腊肉

I don't recall if the other side finished it off...

This was at, I think, Badaling. I recall one customer asking what would happen if someone was desperate and had no money: "We'd let them use it, of course. We're all human."

Admonition at the dining table

The saunas 洗浴 I visit all have something similar to this on prominent display as a tabletop sign of some sort in the dining room where free lunch and supper buffets are served. This one was just slid under the glass. These have been a prominent fixture for several years. Loosely enforced, if at all. Still, a reminder as to what constitutes suggested behavior.

At the dog beauty parlour

Spotted in the dog beauty parlour today (yes, they exist, yes there was a walk in wardrobe of dog clothes, no I was not a customer). Made me smile.

 

What's going on with 愛犬島 and the UK picture? Am I meant to understand the UK is "isle of dog lovers"?

Water calligraphy, by the Forbidden City moat, I think it was.

This is, without a doubt, my all time favourite. Guy was just pootling along the third ring road, I think.

First world problems

Ah, the cost of a bowl of noodles in a bustling metropolis... not been here myself, but apparently worth a visit. Note your different noodle options.
