Fangirling Chinese Novels


Stewed Squid with Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) — Chapter 37


This is my last post before I fly to China for vacation. However, I have already translated the next chapters, and updates have already been scheduled to post at their usual, regular posting times for the next 3.5 weeks. That means you WILL still be getting your Tong Nian and Gun fix. (Just please be forgiving of grammar, etc. mistakes. Editing 8 separate posts means I went a little cross-eyed after a while. I’ll do another proofread when I return.) The only difference is, I will not be around to answer comments during this period. Please comment away as usual. I promise to definitely read through every single one when I return, but likely, due to backlog, I won’t be answering each one individually like I usually do. If you have a comment or question that you specifically want me to return when I get back, put an @hoju in it, and I’ll make sure to reply. In the meantime, be nice to Peanuts, who’ll be helping me keep an eye out to make sure everything posts at the correct time.🙂 Cheers and see you all in three and a bit weeks.

It was just too funny to not include, so we decided to keep it for your reading pleasure.

Who said Shen Xi can’t come up with ideas in the face of difficult situations? And bahahahaha to Shen Xi’s description of “lively and smart, playful and agile.”
