Learn-a-word picture card


One more Chinese lesson? This is the sign of a furniture/household items shop and to you, it can serve as a learn-a-word picture card. The pronunciation is "wun ying" in Cantonese, and I'm sure you know what it means now. Hope you don't have insect phobia.

Wun Ying means large flying insects? I hope it's not a restaurant. Nice to visit your city.

Nice shot. Thanks for the lesson. One word a day is about the right speed. When's the exam?

Funny, from the look of the sign I thought it's a bar.. What kind of furniture are they selling? Old style, modern/trendy, or mixed?

This is a great shot. I think there is a huge sense of humor present in many of your photos...

nice fly!!! but i guess i would go into that store to buy some bug spray!

Bugs are fine, just not AT THAT SIZE! haha... it kinda gave me the shivers when I first saw the photo. Is it supposed to say: WU YING (instead of WUN YING) to mean 'fly'? Maybe a typo?

Chantel and Mattew, welcome to HKDP!

Nicola, I would say the collection is retro, but I'll take another photo for you to see.

Amande, you are just a top-grade student...

Thanks everyone for the footprints, I think it's a fun shot and yes, Lucy, a good sense of humor is a must in life!
