Cute (yet serious) signs

...and from the looks of this sign, it seems
that the elderly and young
are being encouraged to look after each other!

Get the feeling that Hong Kongers
need to learn to relax? ;S

Recently spotted at the Ponyo-themed mall exhibition :)

Earlier this month, I blogged about Funny Warning Signs. At the bottom of that entry, I mentioned that I also had been collecting photos of cute signs that I've spotted while out and about in Hong Kong, and openly wondered whether anybody would like to see them.

A couple of people were kind enough to state that they'd be interested in doing so. So Alejna and sbk, this post is particularly for you as well as my own good self! Still, I do hope that more than just the three of us will be amused by the sight of the amount signs.

Speaking of amusement: More than by the way, on my two most recent hikes (one of them I belatedly discovered was about 20 kilometers in length!), I came across some more funny warning signs. And yes, I do expect that sooner or later, they'll just have to be put up on this here blog... ;b

(Oh, and here's sending out a special "hi" to those visitors who are checking out this blog thanks to the Malay Mail newspaper being nice enough to feature it in its Cyberspot section! :) )

The bunny suit one tickles me especially.

(I have a photo of subway warning sign from France that is not nearly as cute, even though it also has a cartoon rabbit. If I can find the time, I'll share it...but right now I've got this crazy backlog of posts I want to get up, and work and life are taking over my time.)

Thanks for sharing these.

hi ytsl

The signs are so whimsical and fun.
Enjoyed your interview with Malay Mail too and hope it brings you new readers.

Hi Alejna --

You're welcome re the sharing -- and thanks for enjoying. Also, I'd like to see that French cartoon rabbit and will watch out for its appearance on your blog. :)

Hi sbk --

Happy you enjoyed the cute as well funny warning signs -- and the Malay Mail interview. Re the latter: have noticed a slight spike in visitor numbers over the past couple of days. Strangely enough, however, few directly from the Malay Mail site and also not that many visitors from Malaysia.

Hi "eliza bennet" --

Thanks for appreciating and I have to say that I do like how that article turned out. Sadly though, I don't think it's brought my blog all that many new readers! ;S
