'Shaken violently'

OK I give up... what on Earth is going on here?

 

Obviously it's 咖啡 but I can't decipher the rest of that weird font.

Signese Revival 5

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.

 

Love of your own safety and respiratory health optional.

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.

This one's a message to anyone who thinks people are interested in a weekly picture of Chinese characters.

Declaration of Cheapness

Been meaning to snap this for ages - it's almost out of season now.

1) What has been imported?

2) From where?

3) What price are they available at?

4) What aspect of said items is singled out for praise?

5) What are we wished to be every day?

6) Where's the pun?

7) For extra credit (not sure it's even possible) what is the text at bottom left that I cut off?

You can all write this from memory, can't you? Taken by Randall in Beijing in 2006.

Because even the finest of us need to be reminded.

Political Sloganeering in the Mountains

I saw many slogans like this written on the side of the hills and mountains while cycling through the 甘孜 Tibetan autonomous prefecture in Sichuan province last spring:

This one says "感党恩  爱祖国  奔小康". Roughly translated: "Be grateful to the party, love your country, strive to be middle-class". I noticed it when I went with a friend to look for a valuable type of caterpillar fungus, called 虫草. There were also a large group of locals there, all looking to 奔小康 by finding the fungus and then selling it in the market (apparently, a single large piece can fetch potentially fetch several hundred RMB). Unfortunately, despite the encouragement of the mountainside slogan, my friend and I both left empty handed.

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.

Trivia: Do you know the name of that bunny character?

Tuzki (兔斯基)

I decided to post this picture, and one thing led to another, I read a sci-fi short story by Isaac Asimov. What a wonderful afternoon.
