A new shop at Far East Plaza. HORRIBLE NAME. What is rondavous anyway? A bad case of rendezvous?
KL said maybe they are intentionally misspelling it to tell people the correct pronunciation.
Nah-ah. If it’s rondayvoo I can understand. But this is … plain wrong. How am I even supposed to pronounce it, ron-dah-voh-uus? ron-da-vahs like the ou in enough?
Then again, maybe, just maybe it’s French. Rond-à-vous. Meaning “round at/with/to you”. Great way to tell your customers they are fat isn’t it. Great way, then, to start a new shop selling lingerie. (And psst, it’s not lon-jer-ray or whatever your fancy secondary school teacher taught you.)
