Oh, it's been a while..

since we've had any Chinglish.  Maybe because I've been out on my bike less since the baby came to live with us or maybe I just don't notice  it as much as I used to.  Either that or I've been totally humbled by learning Chinese.
Anyway-here are a few good examples.

Pretty close.  Should be "keep" not "leave."  I make this kind of language mistake in Chinese all the time.

Similar to the truth more exciting.  Even in Chinese that doesn't make sense...or does it, Chinese scholars?

I like presh food a lot.  I like fresh food even more.

I assume this is directed at the customer.

If only I didn't shop on a bicycle!  Makes quantity shopping pretty difficult.  Maybe that's why "ifs cheaper" rather than "it's cheaper."  It's all about the possibility.

"I will stand by your forever."  or 20 minutes.  Psst- no one in China lives in a house that looks like the one portrayed in the picture.

We have some great ones here in Japan too. They make good blogging material every now and then.
