扫兴

sǎoxìng - feel disappointed

Today I was disappointed, but I do like this word. 扫 means sweep and I mentioned it previously in the phrase 大扫除, to spring clean, so 扫兴 is to sweep away fortune, which is a poetic way to see things.

天气又坏,吃的又糟。总而言之,这次假日很扫兴。
The weather was bad, and food was terrible. In all in all, the holiday was very disappointing.
