Wipe Clean After Eating (吃干抹净): Chapter 43


The countdown to the final has started so 2 more chapters to go. Xia Ye is feeling bored staying at home so guess how Lu Jun is going to relieve her boredom?

Once again a big thank you to foodie for helping to translate about 10% of the novel. I’ll do the translation for the last 2 chapters to wrap up the novel.

Hua Xu Yin (华胥引) – Chapter 11.2


Part 3 – Chapter 1.2

I couldn’t be certain how much time had passed but the rain still showed no sign of letting up. In the distance, a snarling like that of a tiger faintly sounded.

I struggled to climb up from the mud and briefly considered whether an egg would win against a rock. The answer was no, it wouldn’t. I was able to kill a young leopard with my strength (or lack thereof) only because Heaven had nodded off. If I wanted to kill a matured tiger, then I had better pray Heaven never wakes up again.

One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones (一生一世美人骨) — Chapter 9.2


(Anyone follow the Bundesliga? Almonda?)

After this chapter, can anyone say anymore that Zhousheng Chen is not attracted to Shi Yi? Did our reserved scientist surprise you? :D  This is an interesting chapter with tidbits of information being dropped. I’ll take any speculations and predictions or “I knew it!” from you guys, just to hear what you’re all thinking. :)

Blazing Sunlight I (骄阳似我 上) – Chapter 18


It seems nobody is missing this translation so I’ll put it on hiatus for a month to concentrate on wrapping up Wipe Clean After Eating. I guess it is because there is a book 2 and it has not been published yet so nobody knows how the story will turn out.

After reading this chapter, VP Lin will become even more hated but don’t write him off yet. We can’t have perfect male leads in every novel. What will happen in Shanghai? Come back one month later to find out :P

One Life, One Incarnation: Beautiful Bones (一生一世美人骨) — Chapter 9.1


The atmosphere created in this chapter is so wonderful, but such a difficult one to translate. It’s chapters like these that make me wonder why I chose this novel. :p (By the way, this is the halfway mark of the main story, excluding epilogues.)

I love when Shi Yi surprises Zhousheng Chen with the little things about her.

Hua Xu Yin Summary Part 3 – Jiu Jiu’s Story (华胥引- 柸中雪)

99 & Gong

This is another super angst sub-story in the novel so get ready some tissues. You need to pay more attention to this story because you will not get to watch it in the drama. I think it has been omitted because of the perceived incestuous nature of the story. This is Hui3r’s favourite sub-story and her parting gift to you as hamster has taken over the translation.

As for me, I am only okay with it because I am annoyed with Jiu Jiu. She chose not to believe in Gongyi Fei when he told him everything. She also decided to unilaterally make the sacrifice for him, but never bothered to consult him or find out more information. Many interpreted that as her determination to kill herself. She did not know how to appreciate and cherish Gongyi Fei the first time round. But when given the chance again, Gongyi Fei has already forgotten about her. Hence, everything ended in tragedy due to fate as well as her personal shortcomings. Indeed, I feel sad for her but I feel even sadder for Gongyi Fei who has to live with what could have been.
