Ini adalah percakapan di salah ruangan hotel di China. Waiter dari hotel China itu tidak ada dalam gambar ini, mungkin sengaja bersembunyi 🙂
Sengaja tidak saya terjemahkan karena sulit sekali menterjemahkan lelucon bahasa Inggris berlogat China yang satu ini.
By the time you read through this YOU WILL UNDERSTAND “TANJOOBERRYMUTTS”…and be ready for China .
In order to continue getting-by in China , we need to learn English the way it is spoken…………………..
The following conversation-sort-of-interview went this way and you have to read it over and over again until you are able to understand the term “TANJOOBERRYMUTTS”.
With a little patience, you’ll be able to fit right in.
Now, here goes…
