A room service menu found in the hotel room where I was staying in Sihanoukville. Sihanoukville is the prime beach town of Cambodia about four hours away from the capital of Phnom Penh. In fairness, the food was good, enough to delight my grumbling tummy.

Living in Cambodia for a long time now makes me get used to signs that are funny or are not intending to be funny but because of the outrageous word combination (i.e., translations or context) it takes on another meaning (humorous) or no meaning at all. Previously I posted pictures of funny signs most of which I saw in my frequent trips to the countryside. This time, I am posting something that I found in a Chinese restaurant’s menu.
