Chinglish is what happens when someone who usually speaks a language like Chinese or Japanese translates something into English.  Most of the time, you can understand what they are saying, but it might come out sounding kind of funny because they use the wrong words or put words together in the wrong order.  Mom says that when she writes something in Spanish, it is probably sounds just as funny to people who grew up speaking Spanish.

Anyway, Mom has some pictures from when she was in China, and she also found some examples of Chinglish on eBay, and she said I could share some of them with you today.  So here goes!

This was a sign on a railing:

  1. Dear Piper

    Some of those signs are really funny.

    Did you get the results of your tests from the vet yet? What did they say?

    We hope you're okay!

    Lots of Hugs,
    Katie & Zena

  2. Dear Katie and Zena,

    We got some test results, but we don't know a whole lot yet. I might have leptospirosis, so the lab is checking my blood for that, but Mom read up on leptospirosis, and she doesn't think I have it. Tomorrow I have to go to the vet's office for the WHOLE DAY again to get tested for Cushings. I am not looking forward to that!

    The urinalysis results didn't show much, except that my urine is very dilute. The bacteria culture is still busy growing, so we don't know yet if I have an infection or not.

    Thanks for asking! I will write a blog entry about all my diseases and stuff, if I ever find out what they are!

    Your friend, Piper

  3. Dear Piper,

    That sucks that you have to go back, but it's for a good cause.

    You could have something wrong with your thyroid. It could be a million things. Do you know how many times I had to go the doctor to get the diagnosis of Autism? A LOT. Even then the doctor didn't believe the psychologist and reassigned it as ADHD. It wasn't surprising when the Ritalin didn't work because IT WASN'T ADHD; it was AUTISM. When did I get Autism put back in my file? Last year. See? Even people have problems too!

    So, go to the vet and be a good girl. It's not fun; trust me, I know. I go to four DIFFERENT doctors. It might take a few tries to get the diagnosis right! They'll find the answer. You just have to give them time.


  4. Dear Katie,

    I'm sorry it took so long for you to get your autism diagnosis. You must have felt very frustrated. Anyway, I got tested for Cushings yesterday, and now we just have to wait for the results to see if I have it. If I don't have that, I guess we will figure out something else to test for, so I will try to be patient.

    Your friend, Piper
