Slovo People from Western countries visiting China often see some very funny names for Chinese dishes.. One man was so amused by the literal translation that he wanted to make a post on the internet about the "funny names".

             Prim. red.: Izvinjavamo se čitaocima koji insistiraju na "izvornom" pisanju stranih reči i naziva, ali delimično smo uspeli da pronađemo kako se ovi nazivi pravilno pišu na pinjinu.

● Chicken without sexual life

● Red burned lion head

● Husband and wife's lung slice

● Government abuse chicken

● Twice cooked pork

● Bean curd made by a pock-marked woman

            These translations are first posted at by a foreigner who traveled throughout China. Let's see how "General Zhaoyun" interprets these unusually named dishes….

1. "Chicken without sexual life" - Tong Zĭ Jī (do you mean virgin chicken?)
            Proper English translation should be "Spring Chicken" or "Poussin"/"Coquelet" in French.

They refer to young chickens which have been bred for eating (for less than 3 months).

2. "Red burned lion head" - Hóng Shāo Shī Zi tóu
            Proper English translation should be "Freshly Stewed Pork-balls" Note that it's actually pork, but the fact that it looks like lion head, that's why it's called Lion Head (
Shīzi tóu) in chinese. But in English, it would really be misleading if people mistake it as lion meat.

3. "Husband and wife's lung slice" - Fu Qi Fči Piŕn
            Proper English translation should be "Spicy Pork Lung-slice". It's a Sěchuān food.

4. "Government abuse chicken" - Gong Bao Jī Ding
            Proper English translation should be "Chicken with Cashew Nut" or as it is known in the west, simply, "Kung Pao Chicken". It's actually a Chinese food of Shāndōng origin, but is often mistaken as a Sěchuān food as it's quite spicy. I don't know its historical origin, but there must be a history anecdote that leads to why it was literally named "Court Abused Chicken".


5. "Twice cooked pork" - Hui Guo Rňu
            This is a Sěchuān food that has been literally and correctly translated.

6. "Bean curd made by a pock-marked woman" - Mapo Doufu
            Proper English translation should be "Bean curd with spicy minced pork". It's a Sěchuān food. As Raymond Zhou wrote in the China daily newspaper: "The process of standardizing a menu translation is a double-edged sword because it removes the ambiguity and unintended humor taking away the fun and the rich connotation". How do we

make foreigners, who grew and live in a different culture, fully understand Chinese food names? How do we maintain the original cultural connotation during the translation?

            Li Yang, the voice director (Do you mean, Public Director?) of the Běijīng Foreign Affair Office said, "Food name translation not only puzzles the foreign tourists, but also puzzles experts who engage in dish translation". He said, "How to translate food names is even a hard job for many linguistic experts". To solve this problem the Běijīng Government invited

many professionals from the USA, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong. They are also seeking more proposals globally. Běijīng is trying to give it’s cuisine a linguistic makeover to cater to the much anticipated foreigners visiting during the Běijīng 2008 Olympic game.

Moj dan:

- Ustajem u 5:30 sati.

- Umivanje i osobna higijena hladnom vodom.

- Slijedi obavezna tjelovježba od najmanje 30 minuta.

- Doručak je dosta obilan.

- Radim od 7 do 13:30 sati, ne dulje.

- Sredina dana za mene je nešto posebno. Ručak je standardan, ni prevelik, ni premalen.

- Uvijek ima nešto jušno ili kašasto.

- Slijede kraća šetnja i odmor. Volim prileći, ali ni u tome ne pretjerujem.

- Posla se ponovno hvatam od 16 sati, pa do 17:30. Pospremim radno mjesto i napravim si plan za sutra. Uvijek znam kad ću početi i što ću raditi sutradan.

- Predvečer ispunim nekom "svojom" aktivnošću, kako me volja (sport ili brža šetnja). Može i neki hobi. Rado sam u vrtu. Volim prirodu, slobodu, svjež zrak.


- Večera je svakako između 19 i 19:30. Odgovara mi laganiji obrok.

- Zatim se posvetim sebi, nekoj vrsti duhovnog razvoja; popričam s nekim, pozitivno razmišljam, ponekad nešto pročitam. Ne volim blebetanja, mrzim ogovaranja ("što je tko učinio", "tko je s kim u klapi" i sl.).

- Prije počinka - šetnja.

- Liježem u 22:30 sati (svjetlo gasim 15 minuta potom).

- Meni odgovara ta urednost ritma, a drugima možda ne. Živim kao po nekom planu.

- S nadređenima dobro surađujem. Znam svoje "mjesto". I osjećam neku sigurnost u njemu.

- Ne pijem, ne trošim novce na bilo što, ne seksam, ne pušim...


Pozdrav, vaš Mateo


P.S. Ovdje sam dugo. Bude li sve po planu, nadam se nagradnom dopustu za Božić. Takva su zatvorska pravila.
