Queenstown-Stirling View Residents’ Committee put out a flyer to invite its residents to join in a Christmas Party, but the Chinese translation said that residents were invited to join a Christmas political party. The flyer first posted by Facebook user Bruce Wee has drawn the ridicule of several netizens.

Facebook user Li Liang who commented on Bruce’s post said sarcastically: “双语教育真成功! (Bilingual education really successful!). Others ridiculed that perhaps Santa Claus was the secretary-general of the Christmas Party.

According to the residents’ committee, the notice was translated by an online translator and the error has since been corrected.
