You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 20

Anyone remember my frenemy lidge lol? She has her own blog now which specialises in summarizing/recapping dramas. Her summaries are pretty good & up-to-date so do visit dorayakiz to support her. Both of us like the novel Heavy Sweetness Ash Like Frost. For your information, I was the one who recommended the book to xiaoyuer which got her to start translating it & later picked up by decembi 🙂 We are equally pleased with the drama Ashes of Love which followed the novel quite closely. Hence I’ll be helping her with some of the summaries. Even if you don’t support lidge, you also must pop over to dorayakiz  to support me or else no novel translation for you lol. The drama turned out better than we expected and even though there is no official English subs yet, you can still understand the drama by reading our detailed summaries.

Because of this, the posting for You’re My Glory will continue to be fortnightly. Yes, blame this on lidge. I am innocent since I can only work on one thing at a time 😛 Moreover my editor is on vacation. Yeh, our rabbit is back in Shanghai at the end of the chapter so how will his relationship with Jing Jing develop later?

I’ve received a few messages asking about Shushengbar. I am the administrator for that website but I am not the owner !!! The owner is Chancy who has been paying the hosting and domain name fees without putting any ads. If I remember correctly, these few days will be the website’s 6th anniversary. I suspect Chancy might have forgotten to pay the domain name renewal fees so the website is down. I’ve emailed her but still no response from her. You’ll just have to wait patiently for her to sort it out since I am powerless to do anything. I can’t even migrate that website to be hosted free of charge by WordPress 😦

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 19

We’ve reached the halfway mark of the novel. Hence there’ll be trouble in paradise 😦 The slow tortoise did finish posting the novel online rather quickly but the juicy bits (epilogues) were not posted. I suspect they’ll be included in the physical book or else how to sell the book? The book won’t be published anytime soon because she is still waiting for approval from Tencent for the use of their King of Glory game.

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 15

Thank you for all the well wishes. In this chapter, we learned why Yu Tu has to give up the sea and the stars. It is easy for the parents to support their offspring whose ambitions are common and can earn a good living. But if they aspire to do something non-mainstream with an insecure career prospect, it is rather hard on them. This is more so if the family is not well off. Some Chinese readers think aerospace is rather mysterious and romantic lol.

Jing Jing told Yu Tu that he is a rabbit that has seen the most stars. Many Chinese readers love this sentence. This sentence originated from the Weibo posting of Jade Rabbit Lunar Rover. He posted first-person accounts of Yutu, China’s lunar rover and is very popular across China. Designed to survive for just three months, Yutu has been operating on the moon for over two years, lasting longer than the Soviet Union’s 1970 moon rover Lunokhod 1, which spent 11 months on the moon. Reflecting on his own life, the lunar adventurer seemed satisfied. “I’m a rabbit that has seen the most stars!”

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 14

This chapter is about how Yu Tu & Jing Jing spent their Singles’ Day. Have you heard of Singles’ Day? It is a big day in China with record breaking sales.

After this chapter, the next update will be fortnightly until end of July because I am sick, busy at work and will be away on vacation. Depending on my situation at that time, I may update more often than weekly from August onward.
