Day 218 in Beijing: GONG!

Doesn't really fit the Old West idea of a saloon.

I was a huge fan of the Gong show in the USA.

I was a kid when it was on and I loved the insanity, weirdness, and escape from all normality that would happen whenever a new act came on and tried to win the approval of the judges.

Well, this is a bit of a different type of weirdness and, as the judge, I truly approve of this act.

I think every person would agree that a saloon and beauty therapy are a perfect match!

Heaven is only a mani/pedi away!

Now, a salon and beauty therapy would be simplistic and obvious, so thanks the generosity of misspelling and translations, we have a saloon and beauty therapy all in one at GONG.

Being that there are so many Chinglish misspellings, I want people to know that this is from Melaca, Malaysia and not China.  Malaysians are raised writing and speaking English so there aren’t that many translation mistakes that we’ve seen but this one just spoke to us.

I am guessing they aren’t selling alcohol with men wearing 10 gallon hats and carrying Smith and Wesson pistols while getting manicures and pedicures, but a boy can dream, can’t he?
