We have no good things to sell. -shop sign, Lovina Beach, Bali - Feeling sick? Are you haunted by the horribles? Do you run after your own nose? -Japanese medical form - Wondering what to wear? A sports jacket may be worn to dinner, but no trousers. -in a French hotel brochure - Wondering where to eat? Grill and Roast your clients! Open for lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch. -slogan of the Hibiscus restaurant in the Jakarta Hilton International But don't take our word for it, come see for yourself.
