  • Dramas: 鬼吹灯之精绝古城

Based on the books with the same name. It's well produced (for a Chinese drama) and quite fun. It's set in the 80s if I remember correctly. The language is not that hard, but because of the topic (grave robbing basically) some specific vocabulary gets used. The main characters speak in a northern/Beijing accent. But there a others, like the guide in the desert for example, that have other accents.

      Signese Revival 9 By roddy in Signese 1
      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.
       
      I wonder what a non-民用 key is.

      Dim Sum Menu By abcdefg in Signese 1
      Here is the menu for the recent food article in which I reported on three mornings of Cantonese dim sum. This menu is from Yulong Seafood Hotpot Restaurant in Macau, near Ponte 16. The dim sum article is here: https://www.chinese-forums.com/forums/topic/54982-enjoying-dim-sum/?tab=comments#comment-424075
       
      (You can click the photos to enlarge them.)
       

       
       

       
       
      The waitress brings a pencil along with the menu, and you put a check mark below the items that you want to eat. She told me it didn't matter which box I checked, one of which is for ordering an item a la carte 单点 and the other for ordering an item as part of a larger meal 加单。
       
      She returns later with a typed receipt for the order as it was entered into their system. Always a good idea to double check at that point to be sure there was no mixup. Pricing category designations appear beside the name of the item: 特点,大点,中点,小点。
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      I always try to pick up a blank extra menu so I can study it at my leisure later in the day and do a better job of ordering tomorrow.
