Maybe some phrases get popular and some words too.  But we should not encourage it to be known as Chinglish.
A friend of mine told me that a foreigner once laughed at her poor english calling it as Chinglish....which basically means Chinese English
if you can be happy with what you have, dont wait for more

I think this is a culture exchange between the two languages. Like the word "kowtow", which not exist in english ,it is a common word in chinese ,but  is used by foreigners.

And, personnally, I think it would be a great loss.

The basic purpose of language is communication. If Chinglish can be understood well no matter by Chinese or any other in the world, then why not. Language develops as well as the society.
