Word for the day: SHROFF

Signs for shroff are posted in many shopping centres here in Hong Kong. The word itself sounds like you have a bad case of phlegm. I have never come across it in Australia, so perhaps it is a British word. As far as I can tell, shroff refers to a cashier's office in a car park or shopping centre. However, it's not in my dictionary, so if you find out the meaning please let me know.


  1. Hi Renee
    Hope you are all well. I have enjoyed reading your blog (when I get the chance!) Hope you are all settling in well. So sorry we didn't get to see you before you left, only a quick goodbye to Craig on the phone, I guess there were many goodbyes to be said. Can you email me your postal address so I can send you something. I thought of you the other day as I found a Good Sammy's and a Salvos next door to each other... you probably know exactly where it is!
    Miss you lots and look forward to seeing more of your updates and what the Lord has in store for you all.
    Much love and prayers
    The Hunts xxxxxx

  2. Oooooh, Jo, I really miss the op shops! Make sure you check out the toys for me! LOL So sorry we didn't get to give you a proper hug good-bye; it's one of my regrets about leaving Perth. Love, Renee

  3. A shroff is a money changer . :)dm

  4. So the HKV would say that "Jesus overturned the tables of the shroffs"?
