AMUSING AND INTERESTING SIGNS

Wherever I go, I see signs such as information signs, traffic sign, signboard or commercial signage. I remembered the sign in front of a school, "DRIVE SLOWLY. WE LOVE OUR CHILDREN." Unfortunately, I did not see any sign like that lately. "NO JAYWALKING" is the sign I commonly find around the city.


This sign is put in memory of a former president of the Republic of the Philippines



Street signs helps strangers and visitors where to go.


It took 2 days and one night for me to take a shot of this sign. At last, I had a chance to shoot one early morning.


I want to share one of the signs inside the office and this is it!

Oopps! Kay-uha(arrange)


Indi(Dont)
paglaptahun(scatter)
ang(the)
carbon(carbon paper)
tapos(after)
gamit(using)


What really amaze or interest me is the sign language. Sometimes I encountered a group of people simultaneously combining hand shapes, orientation and movements of their hands, arms, or body and facial expressions to fluidly express their thoughts to each other. They are indeed, GIFTED PEOPLE :-)

Let's see the other AMUSING AND INTERESTING SIGNS around the world through FRIDAY- MY TOWN SHOOT OUT brought to you by Si of Virginia.

Hi Redlan, love your signs! I hope the first one is more than just a sign, but something people in charge everywhere actually pay attention to.

Sometimes, signs posted are lost in translation. Behind hotel doors in some foreign countries, I've seen house rules and regulations wrongly written in English with truly hilarious meanings!

Do they have a statue for her?
