Translation in #Asia – Miscommunication Much?

8 Feb

This is why living in #China or translating from Chinese – English is so hard. . . . Apparently this was supposed to say ‘Copy Business Hours’. Instead it says ‘Check toilet’ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ Most translators are like this! Even #Google translate sucks with Asian languages 😭 *For anyone visiting #China I recommend #HanpingLite. It’s a great dictionary. If you’re in #Korea to visit or for the #olympics, I recommend #codegent Korean Lite app. πŸ˜€

#Travel to #Kyoto – I went out walking one morning in spring πŸŽΌ

6 Feb

‘By the river I went walking
When my troubles came to mind.
But I did not stop for them
And they could not catch up to me.’

This is the breath-taking park at #Arashiyama in #Kyoto Japan. My friends went to find the #monkey πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™Špark at the top of the mountain, but I’m not a HUGE fan of monkeys up close – and – personal. So I just walked along the river. This day is one of my most precious memories. The atmosphere just soothes your soul ❀️.

Travel #Foodie – Green Tea Chocolate

3 Feb

Ok Korea, I Love a good hot cocoa and this mint Chocolate was delish. But WHY add the green tea tree on top?!? Cocoa doesn’t need tea! And I thought it was a mint cookie. . . . it was horrible! Trickery I tell you! But seriously, if you’re in Korea for the #olympics, you gotta try their cafes. They are SO good. Cafe Bene and Angel-N-Us are two of my faves. Fellow #traveler, which coffee shop is your guilty pleasure?

#Art – Cherry Blossoms

2 Feb

Art in the temple & gardens of Sanjusangendo & Chishaku-in at the beautiful #Kyoto. Facebook reminded me of this trip in my memories today. I still say, if you could only visit one city in all of #Japan, go to Kyoto. Breathtaking history, culture, art, museums, temples, natures, modern. . . . I ❀️ Kyoto as much as I do Seoul (and that’s saying a lot!)

Inappropriate #Art

1 Feb

This was right in front of me at a clothing store. At First, I thought it was a #flower. . . ‘Oh, cute’. Then realized. . . . no those are panties. This is a statue of looking up a woman’s skirt. Exactly what the kids and teenagers walking around need to see in life! It wasn’t even an underwear store!!!

#Foodie – Red Pepper Snickers

1 Feb

Hot (θΎ£ – la4) and Spicy Red Pepper #Snickers Bars πŸ˜³πŸ˜±πŸ˜¨πŸ˜­πŸ™€πŸ’€. . . . . There’s something just evil in that. It’s wrong. Dark-side esque Destroying the fine reputation of a delicious treat🍫. A sacrilege of the great ambrosia beloved by the gods. A travesty to #chocolate!!!

#Gryffindor House (It’s real!) aka the #China Spring Festival

27 Jan

Chinese Spring FestivalπŸ‰ . . . when all of China turns into gryffindor 🦁 house and red and gold colors πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ rule.

I think Walmart might be secretly connected to Chinese hogwarts. Walk inside and its gryffindor pride
everywhere.

*Personally, I’m a slytherin – which fits, since my Chinese zodiac Animal is the snake 🐍

Northeast #China – It’s freezing (literally)

25 Jan

When temperatures hit -32C (about -25F), the inside of my pantry window turns into #art!

No, but seriously, I have about an inch of #ice INSIDE my window. My refrigerator pantry turned into a walk-in freezer. All my #fruit froze πŸ˜­β„οΈ
