Bad English

Last week, we had a rare treat. It was a weekday dinner at Pizza Hut. Mummy had to ponteng cooking because being a klutz in the kitchen, she kept "cutting" and "slicing" her fingers with the cleaver almost every other day :( The last "injury" was this deep, painful (and bleeding) gash on her index finger which made her quit cooking on that day.

Ok back to the pizza. The meal was great. I had 2 slices of pizza, some spaghetti, a piece of garlic bread, a bit of creamy mushroom soup, some Milo and a scoop of chocolate ice-cream. Mummy ordered a Kiddy Meal for me, which came with a fun pack...


Stickers, a small box of crayons and a Kid's Teasers booklet

While browsing through the Kid's Teasers booklet, mummy kept shaking her head in dismay. 3 out of the 6 pages had grammatical errors in them...

Bad English 1... Can you understand this?

Bad English 2... Start to calculating?


Bad English 3... They seriously need an editor/proof-reader!

Mummy was appalled by the sub-standard English used by such a large and reputable pizza chain. How can this be? Hmm...

  6. Mummy, I also cut my finger few days ago (was in deep thought..cheh wah). Must have a clear mind when doing all the slicing. Hope your wound heal soon.

    Long time never eat at Pizza Hut already coz their service is bad.
