Graffiti

This big rock is in the compound of the ah-Mah's Temple. Does anyone know this Chinese word?



Well, on our way to the A-Mah Temple in Macau, we walked past these lovely graffiti.

welcome to Macau!

And this view was on my way out of the temple.

  2. 叫作"岩",不过是繁体字.
    It's called "Yan" (means "rock" in English) in traditional Chinese.

  3. "Cliff" might be more correct than "rock".

  5. I like the Chinese word on the rock, but why anyone would write 'rock' in Chinese on there, we know it is a rock.
    Your graffiti is quite pretty and gets the message over.

  9. It can be done in Malaysia as well, if malaysian authority give recognition / permission to those who had talent to "beautify" the many blank wall

  12. Hi, I'm Cloudia's translator friend. It's "yan" which is rock wall or cliff. The one above it is "ming" which means name, but here would be better translated famous. So the characters say it's a famous rock wall, famous cliff, famous boulder.

    The little line of characters to the side are unclear in the middle. It's something about cliff writing in the sixth year.

  13. Their graffiti is a whole lot nicer than ours. I'm having the hardest time with your blog, wenn. If I don't comment for a while it's because your blog was so slow coming up on my computer. Maybe I need a new computer. Hmmm...?

  21. Those Grafitis are cute and cheeky! :p Hmmm...were they done by kids?

  22. The grafittis look like they are done by kids :). How creative. Malaysia should look at grafitti as art instead of shunning them away.
