APAD 015: Dog for rent?

Posted by on Mar 24, 2011 in Addicted to Meme, Signs | 11 comments

No, actually not.
I saw this sign while walking my pet dog Joe earlier today.
The sign is painted on a cement electric post  in Khmer script that says, “Choul”, which means, for rent.
Now it made me wonder, what is for rent? The electric post?


Update: Bora, a former colleague now  based in the US and blogs at Ideas & Thoughts, happened to visit my blog today and corrected me with the translation. The sign above actually means “boom lou“, or plumbing service. Gah, how did I miss that? Khmer alphabet is simple but when you form then into words, that’s when they get so complicated! Perhaps I should bring my eyeglasses next time (tee-hee-hee) to see the signs very clearly. While I’m appalled at the state of my Khmer reading proficiency – imagine if it is a matter of life-and-death sign? I’m glad that it’s straightened out. Thanks, Bora!
