We went food-shopping at Carrefour in Shenzhen last night (the characters are from a children’s book in the store .. I’m the tired guy on the right, I think!), and the food department’s little spelling faux pas reflect the fact that in written Chinese there are no plurals. One dish, many dish, one house, many house, one sheep, many sheep (hey, that one actually works! : ).
After work we’re heading out to Macau for the weekend; I hope to get some rest and just check out the joint. We will wander through the casinos, of course, just to see what they look like. Some travel sites opine that Macau will soon overtake Hong Kong as a travel destination soon, but I will go and look for myself !
