Sin House

This advertisement for an overnight stay is posted on the wall of my favorite Stinky Tofu shop in Luodong (羅東).

新 or 心 or 信 (new, heart, true/letter - all positive or neutral things) can all be written as "xin" in Pinyin, or "sin" in another romanization system.

Clearly unintended, but the website is definitely preventing me from booking a night for my family when they visit.
