Err,what DOES Bespoke mean??:)Or,what is it intended to mean?

Leela A said...

Amit: I checked the online dictionary for the accurate meaning. Here's what I found. As for what it's intended to mean... your guess is as good as mine :)

Cherie! said...

Maybe they meant "bespoken" ...how DO you find these howlers.

Oh and why are you a 'sucker' on your OWN blog :(?

AmitL said...

Heh heh...thanks for the 'tailormade' explanation,Lee.

Zoya said...

:)))) LOL ! What in the world do they mean ? What exactly is custom-made / tailor-made in this saloon ;) ? Or is this a saloon for ladies engaged to be married(http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/bespoke)...and if so, how do they ascertain that, before treating the ladies ? Truly hilarious...where DO you find these gems ? :)

Leela A said...

Cherie: I think there's only one explanation: I don't find them, they find me! And hey, don't take that sucker thing seriously. :-)

Amit: A tailormade explanation in time, saves nine...

Zoya: You've come up with nice hypotheses. One of these days I'll go back and find out which one holds true.

Rhyncus said...

It's probably the owner's daughter's name (pronounced Bey-spoh-kay) and means 'amazing night with starry sky' in the local lingo.

I like the BUY 2 GET 1 FREE window ad for the dresses.

On second thoughts,Lee,did u check the Tagalog dictionary?It might be a Phillipini word.:)

Leela A said...

Rhyncus: That was very convincing. I even asked my Arabic-speaking colleague about "Bey-spoh-kay" and received nonplussed looks. Local lingo, eh??

Amit: Ya, that was a cool one.

Amit L: I checked out your second thought as well. The closest word in Tagalog is 'busabos' meaning 'lowly slave'. Fits, doesn't it? :-)

Twilight Fairy said...

Relocation! And u replicated all posts? :p :)

AmitL said...

LOL..well,depends on whom Tagalog-i is referring to.:)

Leela A said...

Twilight Fairy : Welcome to my new abode. Wipe your feet on the mat please :)

Amit : :-)

Zoya said...

:) Happy Diwali ! Office has 5 days off...Mon to Fri and counting the previous and next Sat-Sun it comes to a whopping 9 days off. So here I am...off on my vacation. Not going anywhere. Just catching up on friends and family. You enjoy your Diwali. :)

Black Sheep said...

pradip said...

Leela A said...

Zoya: Wow, you're lucky! We got only 2 days off. Thanks for your wishes. And hope you're having a nice holiday.

Black sheep: Um... didn't it strike you as an unusual name for a salon?

Anand: Hello again. That pic's big enough for me :)

e: Opinion noted, although I'd recommend not reading too much into these pictures.

Rash: Like I said, they find me. :-)

Pradip: Welcome again. Fancy some tea? :-)

E said...
