After suffering from many days of braindeadness, I’ve finally managed to muster up enough willpower to make another post, this time using the power of pictures to help me along (though, how I managed to be braindead for the last eleven days without anyone pulling my feeding tube is beyond me).
Anyway, da-da-da-dum, here are some funny pictures I took of Engrish in action during my recent trip to Tokyo. For the unitiated, Engrish refers to “humorous English mistakes that appear in Japanese advertising and product design.” (definition taken from Engrish.com)
Who needs coffee when you have burgers that can do the job! Really needed this after a 7 hour overnight flight.
I wish all my snacks were produced with natural light and “wind in the greenery”.
Yes, Tokyo already feels like my hometown. Just a century more advanced…
I never cease to be amazed at Japanese innovation, like how they keep their used eggs fresh.
Ok this is not really Engrish, but it’s amazing how much Japanese love smoking that they even have bars for that.
Now, just what do you mean by hair “cut”? Am I MAD enough to find out?
Can’t stand being the other guy? I can’t even stand myself!
Happy bathday to me, smell me once and you’ll flee…
Speaking of bathday, I mean birthday, today we celebtrated the birthdays of Yixi and Alfred, a dear sister and brother in our caregroup. I must say how joyful it is to have these two folks in our CG as they are always so gentle, honest and sincere. Congratulations and Happy Birthday guys! Hope this coming year is the year that the Lord has made for you both, as you continue to walk and put your trust in Him.
And to wrap up this very Engrish post, this one’s for you guys:
Only one candle for each,
Only one decade apart,
Only one lifetime to outreach,
For the one God that lives in our heart.
