    Hi Lovelli,

    “Don’t eat” sign is still make sense than “Don’t smoke” or “No smoking” sign. That is installed in smoking room, right? I think the room want to take “revenge” to dining room where commonly installed “Dilarang Merokok” or “No smoking” sign.

    It’s witty picture.

    That’s one way of looking at it, Titus. It wasn’t in my mind the moment I took the picture, though. But it is interesting to see, in real life, that design is not everything but…

    everything is designed.

    I posted the picture as a response to Belinda’s interest in learning Indonesian. If I were to be walking around in a city slash country slash area that was very foreign to me and the only language I mastered was English but it wasn’t used in the country, I’d learn first from such signs and symbols.

    I make a point of asking people not to eat while I’m smoking. It upsets my delicate olfactory senses. The fat bastards.
