Let the game and battle begin ! Thank you for the overwhelming support and good wishes. I’ll try to post another chapter before Xmas. But if you don’t hear from me then wishing everyone who celebrates a Merry Christmas.

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 25

Clap, clap, a big welcome to teacher Yu to the exhibition match. Gu Man asked: Are teacher Yu and Jing jing cooperating well? ^_^ Christmas & new year are around the corner so  my editor and I will be rather busy. This means update will probably be fortnightly until after the festive season.

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 24

This is another filler chapter without Yu Tu but nonetheless an important one. Read on to find out how Yu Tu will come into play 🙂 Gu Man said please take note that the exhibition match did not take into account the different versions of the game as the strong heroes have been changing in different versions. Also, all other heroes mentioned in this chapter except the two with pictures, had already been introduced in prior chapters.

Are you watching Never Gone with Elvis Han? If you don’t know about the drama, it is adapted from Xin Yi Wu’s novel called You’re Still Here which was translated by yingniang in Fanatical a while back. There was also a movie version which I am not fond of. I’ve watched about 4 episodes of the drama, so far so good. It is following the revised version of the novel quite closely. The kid and adult cast are also pretty spot on in terms of their looks and acting abilities. I think Viki has applied for the license to sub it into English. In the meantime, you can read lidge’s summary, but don’t hold any high hope that she’ll complete it 😛

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 23

Some of you have been wondering if I’ve abandoned this novel. No, because hoju and I’ve never abandoned any novel translation before. Once we’ve started, we’ll persevere to the end. Just that like the turtle, I take longer to reach the finishing line 🙂 I’ve been busy with real life as well as life as Wallace Chung’s fan in facebook 🙂 I’ll try to pick up the pieces and continue to update on a more regular basis now that hoju is taking her much deserved break. I know it is kind of irresponsible to leave my readers with no update for a while but as I’ve mentioned this before, I’ve no posting schedule and I am doing this merely as a hobby which I can put down and pick up.

Like most drama and novel, once you reach the middle part, there is bound to be some fillers and this chapter is obviously one. This is another reason why I was not that motivated to translate on a timely manner 😛

For those who are awaiting update on Shushengbar, the good news is that hamster had bought a new domain name. The problem is migrating the old content to the new domain name due to the usage of sub-domain name in the old site. Chancy has been too busy to sort this out. We’ve a volunteer Amy who has been very helpful. So, hopefully the new site can be up and running by Christmas.

The Healing Sunshine (一厘米的阳光) — Epilogue *NOVEL COMPLETED*

Side Note: While there has been no official announcement, the station that bought the airing rights for Go Go Squid! (drama adaptation of the novel, Stewed Squid with Honey) has created a page for the drama and put the airing date as January 1, 2019. Take this with a grain of salt and wait for the official news, but that gives you an approximate idea.

We have come to the end of The Healing Sunshine‘s translation. I’ve shed many tears for it as I had to immerse myself in it more than ever in order to hopefully, in translation, capture all those emotions that are within the novel. And so, exhausted, joyful that this couple has been given a happy ending, slightly melancholic over what they have gone through and what they will have to face in the future with Jì Chengyang’s health, and rather sad as I’m going to miss this couple, I bid farewell to Xixi and Little Uncle Jì. Hopefully you have enjoyed the story and perhaps, like me, have felt for not just the leads of the story but the other characters as well. Thank you for those who have come with me as I also walked alongside Xixi in her growth journey. I appreciate all the support you have given, love your comments, and am grateful to just have you guys around. 🙂 Post includes the epilogue, the author’s afterword, and some remarks from me to close off this project.

This is a heartwrenching epilogue, but in some ways, it provides closure. We now have a glimpse into some of the details we were missing before.

The Healing Sunshine (一厘米的阳光) — Final Chapter (Part 2 of 2)

And with this post, the main story has reached its ending! One epilogue to follow.

My promise has been kept; it is the happy ending you have all waited for. It may not be extravagant, it may not be what you expected, but the ending he gave her is the ending she has always wanted—Jì Chengyang style.
