Tang Qi’s Books Mini-Special – Part 13


Dragon boat

A Happy Belated Children’s Day (1 June) to all my readers who are still a child or a child at heart:) Also, wishing all of you an early Dragon Boat Festival (Duanwu) which will be on 12 June. Peanuts will be going away for about 1 month so there may be little or no update.  Initially I plan to read the Pillow Book 2 during my holiday so I can post spoilers for all of you but unfortunately Tang Qi has postponed the release date from 12 June to the end of July:( Good news for those who wanna see Dong Hua Dijun naked as according to fans in Baidu, there will be ‘boating’ scenes in Book 2, lol. In the meantime, don’t miss me too much:P


What are the female leads doing on Dragon Boat Festival day?

Jun Fu: “Learn from Mu Yan on how to wrap sticky rice dumplings (zongzi), his skill is very good.”

Bai Qian: “Learn from Ye Hua on how to wrap sticky rice dumplings (zongzi), his skill is quite good.”

Yan Song: “Learn from Qin Mo on how to wrap sticky rice dumplings (zongzi), he is really good at it.”

Feng Jiu: “Dragon Boat Festival? When is the Dragon Boat Festival, passed already?”

(Although Dijun is not around … Feng Jiu, how can you lost track of time?)


Which festival do the female leads like best?

Bai Qian: “Valentine’s day.”

Yan Song: “Valentine’s day.”

Jun Fu: “Valentine’s day.”

Shao Wan: “Valentine’s day.” (I don’t know who is this woman but I think she is the female lead in the 4th book with Mo Yuan)

Cheng Yu: “Valentine’s day.”

Feng Jiu: “…… Children’s day.”



Bai Qian: “Ye Hua …… I’ve embroidered this mandarin duck pillow for half a day yet I still could not finish it.”

Ye Hua: “Qian Qian, it is fine. If you feel tired, do not embroider anymore.”

Yan Song: “Qin Mo, take a look, I’ve made clothes for Lang Lang.”

Qin Mo: “Then… Song Song, did you make one for me?”

Yan Song: “You are so rich yet you want me to make clothes for you?”

Qin Mo (hug Yan Song’s waist): “Song Song, I want you to make for me …”

Su Chen: “Xiao huang… why your fur is still not growing?”

Xiao huang (after smelling the aroma of the roast chicken, it looked bitterly at Su Chen, then look at its naked body): “…”

Su Chen (looked up at the sky): “The embroidery contest is around the corner … if your fur is still not growing, what are we gonna embroider?“

Xiao huang: “…”

Feng  (shy): “Dijun …… I, I embroidered a handkerchief for you.”

Dong Hua (observe Feng Jiu’s expression): “Not bad.”

Dong Hua (see some small wordings on the handkerchief: “Did you write me a poem to express your love?”

Feng Jiu (sheepishly run away swiftly) “Read it.”

Dong Hua smilingly read out the wordings:

“Dijun I really do not like to eat your sweet and sour fish”

Dong Hua: “…”


Yan Song: “Brother, is my singing good or bad?”

Qin Mo: “Not…not bad”

Cheng Yu: “Rogue, is my singing good or bad?”

Lian Song: “… Very good, very good.” … (3rd Royal Highness dares not say bad)

Jun Fu: “Mu Yan, is my singing good or bad?”

Mu Yan: “Do not worry, no matter what … when compare with Jun Wei, you are definitely number one.”

Feng Jiu: “Dong Hua, is my singing good or bad?”

Dong Hua: “Did you change your singing voice to a male fox?”



Jun Fu: “Mu Yan, I cannot sleep.”

Mu Yan: “Never mind since you do not need to get up early.”

Bai Qian: “Ye Hua, I cannot sleep.”

Ye Hua: “Then we shall do something meaningful.”

Bai Qian: “……”

Yan Song: “Brother, I cannot sleep.”

Qin Mo: “Well, I’ll sing you a lullaby?”

Yan Song (angry resentment): “Brother, I’m not a child.~”

Feng Jiu: “Dong Hua, I cannot sleep.”

Dong Hua: “Xiao Bai, sleep lah. I’ll chant the Buddhist sutra to hypnotize you.”

Feng Jiu: “……”


What are the male leads most regrettable things in life?

Ye Hua: “When she was Susu, I did not protect her well (already very good π_π).”

Mu Yan: “When she was Ye Zhen, I invaded Wei country resulting in her sucide.”

Qin Mo: “When she was Lolita, I did not cherish her.”

Lian Song: “When she was a red lotus fairy, I did not win back her heart from my second brother.”

Dong Hua: “When she was a little fox, I did not often cook her favorite dish, sweet and sour fish to indulge her.”



Jun Fu: “Mu Yan, if I want you to choose between the throne and me, which will you pick?”

Mu Yan: “You want to hear an honest or fake reply?

Jun Fu (indecisive): “Fake, fake one”

Mu Yan: “The throne.”

Jun Fu smacks Mu Yan’s lip.

Qin Mo: “Song Song, between novels and me you can only choose one.”

Yan Song: “With great difficulty and reluctance I’ll pick you”

Qin Mo (raise eyebrows): “Reluctant? I’ll let you know what is willingly.”

Yan Song: “. . . . . .”

Ye Hua: “Qian Qian, if I want you to choose between A Li and me who’ll you pick?”

Bai Qian: “Are you jealous? Are you jealous?”

Ye Hua: “. . . . . .“

Feng Jiu: “Dong Hua, if I want you to choose between Lian Song and me, you can only choose one, who will you pick?”

Dong Hua: “. . . . . .”


Qin Mo: “Lin Qiao and me, you can only choose one.”

Yan Song: “Your question is a roundabout way for me to choose life or death? Rest assured, now I have you and Yan Lang, I will not take things too hard.”

Qin Mo: : “.. . . . . “

Ye Hua: “Mo Yuan and me, you can only choose one.”

Bai Qian: “My husband and my mentor, equally important. You better change to Li Jing.”

Ye Hua: “. . . . . .”

Dong Hua: “Roasted yam and me, you can only choose one.”

Feng Jiu (indecisive for a long time and finally come up with a brilliant idea): “You!”

Dong Hua (pleased): “Not bad.”

Feng Jiu: “So, you are considered my man.”

Dong Hua: “You are my woman.“

Feng Jiu: “Hey, since you are my man, from now onwards, you have to roast yam for me to eat every day!”

Dong Hua: “. . . . . .”

Bai Li: “Xiao huang and me, you can only choose one.”

Jun Wei (grit teeth): “Son, bite him!”


Gong Yi Fei asks Jiu Jiu (original line): “How do you see me, your brother · · or a man?”

Xiao huang asks Jun Wei: “How do you see me, your son. . . or a slave?”

Mo Yuan asks Ye Hua: “How do you see me, your brother. . . or a love rival?”
