Hmmm.. I should have sensed this sign coming up as God knows what happened as my head felt like something knocked against it.. :P

Great idea for the week and glad that you can track me down this week too.. haha

satkuru said...

have a great weekend !

Yen said...

I like your take on this theme,Elaine! :) Mines up too! and have a fab weekend!

julie said...

Ling, wow, 4 different languages. Here in the Philippines,its mostly English but in some places, there's Korean symbols under the English ones. What!? Have they taken over the country? (I have a post about this in my GreenBucks blog)There's just way too many of them here.

Oh, your neighbors. Just the other night I called in the local community patrol to go to those noisy neighbors. They did and everything was quiet until there was noise again because our dog got another stray cat. Again.

Have a great weekend :)

Liza said...

haha, perfect for the theme, so most signs there are multilingual.

happy hunting.

Sue said...

jams o donnell said...

JesieBlogJourney said...

I haven't seen four different languages signboard for a long while.

I decided to post early for this week.

littlepolaris said...

Wah is so rare nowadays to find all the 4 language on 1 signboard. Nice take!

Huey said...

Good choice for the theme leh. I was having such a hard time looking for a suitable one for this week, and I have to agree with satkuru, yours is so simple and straight to the point!

Sarge Charlie said...

excellent choice for the theme

jmb said...

That's different, here they are only in two. French and English. Good photo for the theme.

ellen b said...

That is a little different from Southern California. But many signs here are in Spanish and English now...

Bing said...

I always see this too when I'm on a different country especially in most asian countries.

Happy Weekend Ling!

Heather said...

Wow, that really is different. :)

eastcoastlife said...

It's only recently that the authorities are putting up more signs in different languages, before that it was mostly English.

Next to tackle would be announcements in different languages. ehhe....

Carver said...

Good shot for the theme. Danger signs are an important one to have in different languages so everyone understands them. Hope you have a great weekend.

Corey~living and loving said...

Greeat post for the theme. 4 different languages. wow.
happy Weekend!

leslie said...

This is great and as jmb mentions, Canada has 2 official languages, English and French. However, we have so many immigrants, that sometimes you see signs in Mandarin, Cantonese, Vietnamese, Punjabi, Hindi, and others.

byrningbunny said...

Great contribution. I love seeing signs posted in languages everyone can understand.

marcia said...

perfect for the theme --we have everything in two languages here in TX in Spanish and English

SabineM said...

I used to Live in Switzerland and we also have four languages, but one is more like a dialect.. so everything is actually written in French, GErman, and Italian.....lovely take on the theme!

Heart of Rachel said...

That's a great entry for this week's theme. It's good to have safety signs in different languages to make sure that its meaning is set across successfully.

Lynn said...

I understand the first one at least. :)

gizelle said...

Wow, that's really nice! I love learning new languages and in your place, just comes in handy, I mean you do learn each also at school right? Great post for today Elaine, keep it up!

Natalie said...

How neat to live in such a diverse area!

Mar said...

Very different and very interesting!!

pelfy said...

You really posted something interesting this week. But sometimes, these translations may have different meanings and usually they make me laugh hard. Haha... (= Happy weekend (=

Sanni said...

Aileni said...

I am well used to bilingual signs but this is DIFFERENT!
Thanks for the visit.

kiky said...

:), I nveer thought you'll come with this idea.
when I was 7, it was my 3rd trip to Singapore, (i was able to read) I told my dad,
"dad, mereka mengerti bahasa Indonesia"
means : dad, they can speak our language...:))

Dragonstar said...

Like Aileni, I've lived most of my life with bi-lingual signs (Welsh/English, and now Irish/English) but four languages is certainly different!

ipanema said...

that's a very clever idea! great take on the theme! :)

pat said...

I think more of the world is becoming like that. Living here in the European Union, many signs and product packages are in all sorts of languages.

Happy Weekend.

Hootin' Anni said...

EXCELLENT!!!!!

My Photo Hunt Different is shared, I hope, if you haven't already, you can drop by and pay a visit. Happy weekend.

secret agent mama said...

Very different indeed!

crazy working mom said...

I guess if you can't read this one then you'd be in trouble! *LOL*

Happy Hunting.

dawn said...

If I recall, don't they have different languages on their announcements in MRTs too?

Cindy said...

That way everyone can understand the signs. In Canada it's English and French!
