No entry without fetching yellow helmet. What's the 小广告 for?

This was from a gorgeous snowy day I spent happily wandering from Qianmen subway station to a hot chocolate in Nanluoguxiang, via the Forbidden City.

Think this was a contribution from @zhwj. Note extra-simplified character.

I didn't used to like getting my hair cut. Hated getting it cut in Chinese.

Back to School

I live next door to an elementary school, and walk past it's side gate pretty much every day. Last week was nice and quiet as the kids were still on holiday. But they're back now.

 

Spotted this little etching which mysterious appeared right next to the school gate a few days ago…

A Hand Scrawled 春聯

During my annual adventure into the Chinese outback for Spring Festival I decided to keep myself occupied by going on a search for the most unique 春聯 in the neighborhood. We went to 百年 in an unfamiliar part of town on the last day and I came across this old house. Pasted in the middle is a tiny, but proud brand new 2018 year of the dog calendar. After coming across an endless number of free brand advert 春聯, this was a bold and refreshing thing to see. Happy Year of the Dog to all.

I wonder if they ever measured the impact this kind of stuff had.

Well, if you're going to be a crab, be an adventurous crab.
