You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 28

Gu Man had mentioned before, this chapter is not sweet so be prepared 😦 PS, brother Tu has a rather grim view of the world recently. But after a period of time, he’ll recover… boo hoo hoo…

I am in the midst of choosing a web hosting service for Shushengbar.  I’ve researched and narrowed down to these 4 being BlueHost, HostGator, Siteground and Godaddy. Anybody had any experience with them? Any comment or suggestion is welcome.

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 27

This chapter is rather technical so it took me and my editor quite a long time to finish translating and editing it. But at the end of the day, we are still not sure how to translate certain terms and paragraphs so if you spot any mistake, do let me know. While Gu Man was updating the novel online, she warned that the next chapter will not be sweet. Since the gaming part is finished, I’ll try to post weekly until the end which should be in March.

Opps, nearly forgot to mention that, did anyone notice Yutu-2 is in the news lately?

Regarding Shushengbar, it is taking such a long time to be restored because Chancy won’t be hosting the site anymore. So, my helper Amy is trying to restore the files saved and sent by Chancy in WordPress but the SQL file is missing so I’ve to wait for Chancy to get that to me. Moving SSB to WordPress has been very tedious and hard with many obstacles along the way. Amy has been very helpful and is doing her best since she also has her job and life to live. Be patient as we are still learning the ropes since both of us are not tech savvy. I hope I can share some good news with all of you soon.

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 26

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.

Will it be A Heartwarming Decade?

Update: Oh, I forgot to mention that in order to get over her drama withdrawal, lidge posted the summaries for the last 4 episodes of Ashes of Love in her drama blog.

First off, good news to Shushengbar’s (SSB) fans. Alas, I managed to contact the owner of the website (she changed email address without informing me 😦 ) and all the contents are still intact. Nevertheless a big thank you to Amy for helping me to contact the hosting company. Unfortunately, the domain renewal email was sent to Chancy’s old email address so she didn’t get it and didn’t renew the name on time. The super quick Barnes & Noble had already taken the name. Hence, we’ve to register a new name. I am still in discussion with others on it. Then we also have to fix the database a little so it is in sync. Once we got the name and the website up and running, I’ll inform all of you in You’re My Glory post. Stay tune, the website is still alive lol.
