Valentine’s Day has finally arrived! It’s Sheng Sheng and Toupai’s first date! <3
Okay, your present has arrived a week late due to the launching of the new novel Best to Have Met You :) We’ve a new character in this chapter. Who is that? What is the present Xia Ye is holding? Who is Xia Ye giving it to? Read further to find out :P By the way, Dree is still around to help me to translate the novel so give her more support so that I’ll have more time to drool on WC, lol.
This post has nothing to do with novel or drama but I am in charge now so I can post anything I want, lol. No la, I want to share something nice and enjoyable with you :) Since lidge is blatantly advertising her Wallace Huo, I also can’t lose out with my Wallace Chung. After completing the filming of You’re My Sunshine, WC is busy participating in The China celebrity version of the popular US reality tv program The Amazing Race. Have you watched it before? I seldom watch reality tv programs like The Survival, Big Brothers etc. but The Amazing Race is one which I like the most. Hence, I was looking forward to watching WC taking part in the China version with his real life sister, Jackie. The first part was shown on Shenzhen tv on 17 October, Friday and every Friday thereafter. You can still watch it on youtube even if you can’t understand Mandarin as the first destination was New York City so they spoke a fair bit of English.
Thank you everyone for your feedback regarding the song translations. :) I am happy there are people who read them and find them helpful and not the least bit upset if you choose to skip over them as well.
So, the day of their first meet-up is finally coming to a close. (It only took 8.5 chapters!) What’s next? Hanny, you should be pretty happy about this…. ;)
lidge: To celebrate the release of the trailer for The Journey Of Flower, I’ve translated chapter 1 of the novel from which the drama is based on. Thanks to Peanuts for finding the cute pics below. I approve!! :D
Peanuts: I better put a word of warning here that there is high probability that this translation will not get finished so don’t come and complain to me as lidge is independent from me, as well as the blog :P. Anyway, do support lidge & her quest to conquer Wallace Huo, lol.
lidge: Yes, I’m afraid I don’t have a lot of time to work on this project because I’m busy trying to get Wallace Huo to marry me :P :D.
Happy Belated Birthday to my Mo Ting ! :) He was born on 15th Oct 1985. Oh, we are so fated in that I started translating his novel, right before his birthday, lol. To celebrate his birthday, of course you get another update on how cool and awesome he is. Hoju who is also currently reading this novel, thinks Mo Ting is kind of similar to Xiao Nai, the male lead in Gu Man’s Just One Smile is Very Alluring and her Toupai in Really Really Miss You. Well, I’ve to admit this author is heavily influenced by Gu Man which is why I also like some of her novels, so it is not surprising Mo Ting has shades of Xiao Nai. However, Toupai comes after them so I guess Mo Ting is more original, heehee…..
Come back next Thursday for the talent contest to celebrate the unveiling of the novel, as well as some spoilers so stop searching in shusheng bar or anywhere online because you won’t be able to find anything in English until then :P In the meantime enjoy Mo Ting and An Ning’s unofficial lovely 1st date!
I have a favour to ask of everyone. By show of hands (comments), how many people read the song translations? Are they helpful? Just nice to have? I have tried to translate nearly every song that makes a proper appearance in the story, but do they add to your reading enjoyment? Just curious to see if people would miss them if the lyric translations decreased. (Not saying that’s what I’m planning, but they are my greatest nemesis in this translation project… :p)
It’s confirmed where the insider information on Sheng Sheng is coming from. One of my favourite “moves” by Toupai is in this chapter. So high profile!
