    Cartman started this idea.

    Grand opening… but not for you, ordinary people!

    Grand opening… in 2011. Nowadays it’s closed.

    In time of the grand opening, it is closed. But it feels it is invited to watch the thing from a distance.

    Good English? Closed, but no cigar.

    I think I see the problem. When they say “Grand” opening, that’s what it costs to get in. ;)

    I know how they feel – she was always very closed to me.

    Sometimes the 1% just likes to rub it in our faces.

    Beyonce! Now, that would be a “Grand Opening”.

    Spa services?? I know what is on offer in Thailand. What does Vietnam offer?

    Look mate. We wouldn’y allow YOU into anything we run.

    Smile Spa???? I know what a “Smiley” is, and it certainly does….Wake up your senses. But a Smile spa would be ridiculous.
