I am sure all of you already know I bought the book, Come & Eat, Shan Shan in Beijing:) It includes a comic booklet called Gui Man Jiong Ji. Gui means turtle. Jiong – 囧 originally means bright. But now, it is the coolest word on the web. Many young people like to use it in online chat). Ji means to record / to note / to remember / mark / sign. The cartoons have nothing to do with the story but are just a record of Gu Man’s experiences? The last one is the free poster which relates to the story. With great difficulty since I cannot use google translate, I’ve translated them with the help of my dad and good friend. I don’t really find them funny but they look pretty cute so enjoy looking at them.
The doll figure: Oh, you are eating supper again! That will make you fat!
Gu Man: Do you know what it means by “Horse won’t get fat if it does not eat grass at night”?
The doll figure: ?
Gu Man: If a writer does not eat at night, her writings won’t be rich (fat).
The doll figure: …….Oh yea, so that means you always stayed hungry before?
Gu Man: It’s so windy here, so I can’t hear you.
Played too much computer game, I am having a sniff neck & headache….
Haha…..Luckily, I can always claim workers compensation:P
I am very anxious when I’ve writer’s block.
I feel very excited when I’ve flashes of inspiration……
When I was walking on the road, suddenly I’ve many creative ideas.
But when I arrive home and want to write them down, I forgot everything! 😦
Such a nice day to update my internet novel!
Type, type, type….
Oh no, my computer hung up and I have lost everything!
I might as well not wake up to update, wasted my time!
Going back to bed in tears:(
It has stopped raining so I am going out with my laptop to update my novel!
Oh no, why is it suddenly raining?
I am all wet when I arrive at the destinated place.
What? I’ve an umbrella in my handbag all along !!!!
Wah ! So nice !
Ka Si Le….!
As an author, I’ll not buy a bag with the brand name ‘Ka Si Le’! (pun on the brand name which also means ‘jam’. I think she doesn’t wanna get ‘writer’s block’)
Shan Shan (playing computer game) is elated: “Finally, I killed the Boss!”
Feng Teng (reading): “Ah? Oh, you have taken revenge for last night?”
Shan Shan is fuming: “…… I want to play again.”
Feng Teng looks out the window at the sky: “So early? But, since you requested ……”
He puts down the book and stands up ……
Shan Shan: “Hey, why are you doing!?”
Feng Teng: “Don’t you want to play again?”
