Curry worry

I often see posters or signs here in Hong Kong with an interesting picture but all Chinese text. It frustrates me that I can't take advantage of children's events or grocery items on special because I don't know the language.

Tonight I wanted to buy some curry from the supermarket for a sauce I was cooking. I found this spice jar with something that looked like curry, but I couldn't know for sure as none of the writing was in English. After I paid for it I opened up the jar and was relieved to find that it was indeed the right product.

This is just a petty vent, I know, but daily communication frustration is one of the biggest hurdles I face here in Hong Kong.
