Chengdu, China.
Here's a gallery of 16 intriguing signs, products and so forth: English in China.

I think I'm done with China photos.


The China photos were fabulous. I'm sorry to see them end.

nice selection of 'chinglish' interpretations in the flesh. lived in macau as a youngster (can vouch there for exactly the same mish-mash of portuguese/chinese/portuguese innuendo that you are highlighting, albeit on a much less flash scale)! very enjoyable. btw native speakers no longer 'own' the english language - are just privy to using it on a different level!!

Just walked by "That Person is According to the Clothing" after a tour of the Forbidden City. Got a good hearty laugh out of that one, it's great you've posted a photo. Reminds me of a couple of other personal favorites like the Beauty Shop "Hair Make" in Japan, or the classic Italian restaurant in my own back yard called "By Th' Bucket" (no, that wasn't a typo). Can't be tastier than straight from the bucket:
