Macaodoulao

June 23, 2010

On the way to work, there is a big ugly Mc Donald sign, Chinese characters create a nice juxtaposition between fast food far West and fast grow far East.
Another interesting story is that behind the chain is a posh restaurant (the one we had our hot pot extravaganza) named: “Macaodoulao”. I suppose that’s roughly the sound equivalent of trying to translate Mc Donalds to Mandarin and it had created some funny misunderstandings in the past.
