Mixed-up Gorilla Sign

I am in the process of preparing my post on our very short but fantastic summer vacation adventures. In the mean time, here’s an awesomely jumbled sign. This is from the restaurant named Gorilla on the corner of the street we stayed on in Busan. They spelled the name right on the big sign, but misspelled it on this little one. They also seem to have confused their primates. I will never grow tired of the silly English in Asia. It will always make me giggle.

Picture of the Week: Bon Voyage

This is a classic from my archives. I came to Korea for the first time in 2009 and found this gem on a t-shirt. I had to buy it and ended up ditching it in Thailand after it got too stained with dirt, sweat, and paint.

The English really blows your mind. It actually hurts if you try to read it and understand it. Take a look at the clocks too. Clocks are pretty universal objects, so I’m not sure how they got so messed up on this t-shirt. First of all these clocks only have 10 digits, one of which is 0. On top of that, the numbers go backwards clockwise. Who made this t-shirt and what were they on?

Picture of the Week: School Food

Raise your hand if you want your mouth full of dream!

I took this picture outside a chain restaurant called School Food in Hongdae. For the record, they do have some dreamy items on their menu; like their mari, which is somewhere between kimbap and sushi, served with mayo (yuck!) on the side. Dave and I can’t get enough of their tempura shrimp and beef mari rolls.
