Day 41 - Freebies, macarons and Engrish

Tonight we returned to Kokoro Ramen for dinner (I've previously written about our first visit here). Alongside bowls of ramen, we also ordered a plate of gyoza to share. When the gyoza arrived, I thought, "$5.50 for 10 gyoza ain't bad!". Halfway through our meal, a waitress appeared at our table looking rather embarrassed and apologetic. She put down a plate of 2 pieces of gyoza and said, "So sorry, here are more gyoza because the kitchen gave you too few." In other words, freebies! Score!

For dessert, we had delicious morsels of macarons from La Belle Miette.
Delightful maracons!

I got a new screen protector for my camera off eBay as the current one was starting to peel at the corners, and the bits of dust that kept getting caught really annoyed me. It arrived in the mail today, and I couldn't help but laugh out loud when I read the text on the packaging.

I really appreciate good Engrish, and how professional they try to be...
Real professional Engrish

Wow I think this screen protector might be able to cure cancer. It's anti-dusty, anti-scratch, anti-dirt, anti-aging, and even anti-strike. Wtf is anti-strike?
What does anti-strike mean?

Best. Instructions. Ever!
Great Engrish instructions


  1. Chinese day the darndest things!

  2. lol those directions are awesome! You should have no trouble at all putting that new screen protector on Sammie :P.

    1. I reread it about 10 times and still had no idea what it was on about and chucked it to the side!
