Being hopelessly illiterate in a language has never been so much fun as it is in Beijing.

Armed with a digital Chinese-English dictionary on my trusty iPad, I’ll take a guess at these brand names. The “Good Friends (are) Interesting” brand of “thick side” potato chips comes in two fabulous flavors.

On the left, “Lots of Juice Beef Extract Flavor” … which is obviously superior to just plain “juicy beef” favor.

And on the right, “Pure Aroma Original Flavor” … gee, potato-flavored potato chips!

My new Chinese instructor, Lî laoshi (teacher Li), will be surely be amused when I ask her about potato chip brands!
