View from the Fridge

Sadly, most expats here, excluding myself of course, cough cough, have something from marginal through to no Chinese language skills whatsoever.

What to do?

Buy a Fridge Magnet set from us, and communicate. (or alternately make pretty word patterns, that part’s up to you)

Our Fridge Lingo sets have common phrases for various situations. Our first set, available now is “Talking to your Ayi”.

Over 200 magnetic words and phrases with English, Chinese and Pinyin (per word/phrase) which you can use to make sentences with.

Unfortunately, as Smart Shanghai pointed out in their review, we neglected to include a “you’re fired” phrase, but the rest of the phrases in the set are pretty useful, including such gems as “empty the cat litter”, and “please”, both of which go well together, at least in my side of the apt.

Our second set (coming out soon), is aimed at a different segment of the marketplace. We’d probably recommend that people don’t try to mix the 2 sets on the Fridge, unless you really like your ayi, but we’d be giving too much info away.

You can buy them online here, with Cash on Delivery available to anywhere that our Kuaidi company will send someone to, which apparently includes most of Shanghai. Yes, even that bit across the river called Pudong, not that anyone actually lives there, right?

Remember… Fridge Lingo is hand made by Laowai’s for Laowai’s.

Fridge Lingo is available at select venues around town, or online at http://www.iwantone.cn
