Be Smile

I enjoy running across badly translated English. I saw the following on a website for a hotel in China:
Join us NOW!
Be surprised.
Be satisfied.
Be smile!

At work we are in the process of doing the opposite. We are getting ready to launch the Chinese version of our website, hopefully we get the translation edited properly. Ideally we will not make mistakes in Mandarin that end up reading like the section quoted above. However, I like the idea of "Be smile!" it is a good goal or life motto.
