2152f6f4885eaf2cc3d90b5d724c5ffe65eec9f49230b-wwlvxb_fw658

Finally, I am posting my beloved mini-special. It is really tough, dividing my limited time between my two guys Feng Teng & Dong Hua, lol. I’ll try to do at least a mini-special a month. Since summer holiday will be over soon, this feature will be mostly on the cute & adorable kids, little dough & Gun Gun. Should I do one on Yan Chi Wu since I am starting to like him very much:P?

imagesCAZK8F0Ec8a11e7b40294fff86539805cc5b5f5c0003

This has quite a lot of overlaps with the top 35 favourite male characters. You go and spot how many of them appear in both so you’ll know who are the popular and well-loved ones. A special mention must be given to Feng Teng, my Shan Shan’s beloved Big Boss, lol. Now, you know my self-interest in posting this article, heehee….If you are curious as to who is that ancient guy in the featured image, he is Rong Zhi (Feng Qui Huang). As for the handsome couple starring at you, they are Wei Wei & Xiao Nai (Just One Smile is Very Alluring). As usual, I only know about half of the books so no comments on those I don’t know which may be updated later.

8b191c1d0f79d5a826233a2b995f4eb5d88d0e84858d2-gaktlv_fw658

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

35 Favourite Male Characters in Chinese Romance Novels

e21cc50094e534b4e950cd0b

Peanuts: Two months ago, Lidge sent me a Baidu poll result on China’s choice of top 35 Favourite Male Characters in Chinese romance novels. I don’t really agree with most of their rankings. As usual, He Yi Chen from Gu Man’s novel Why We Become Silent comes first. I find He Yi Chen alright but not my number one favourite but Lidge loves him. Thus, to each its own. For your information, Ye Hua is ranked fourth. I suspect Dong Hua is not ranked because the poll is outdated. If you want to know my favourite male characters, click here.

Lidge: 35 Favourite Male Characters in Chinese Romance Novels or what I like to call “35 reasons why we read Chinese romance novels”…haha. My comments are in black. Peanuts comments are in italic. Are you ready? OK, here we gooo……

Three Lives Three Worlds Epilogue: Spoof on Little Dough’s Great Name

227db703b6b11bdfe7b1a8b681d425bb9174e74d398df-atb0tz_fw658

I found this cartoon in the 10 Miles of Peach Blossom artbook. It is based on an epilogue which hamster didn’t translate. Thus I will do the translation since it is short. I want to try my hand at translating at least a small part of Tang Qi’s book:) So, here is another goody to make your wait for part 2 of Book 1 of The Pillow Book more bearable:P Bai Qian wanted to change 团子’s (Tuan Zi meaning little dumpling) name to 黒子 (Hei Zi meaning black son) but our poor little dough didn’t like it 😦

Note: The translator for 10 Miles of Peach Blossom called hamster translated Ye Hua’s POV but she had taken her translation offline. Thus, please contact her directly for a copy. If you search hard enough, you’ll also find an illegal copy or two online (don’t ask me for the link since it is illegal).

Anyone miss my 3L3W specials:P? Actually I wanted to stop translating as I am getting bored with it. I think my readers are also feeling likewise. However, Lidge was reading The Pillow Book and we had some very interesing and funny discussions on it. This reignites my love flame so here is another instalment to tide you over till hamster comes back from her holi:) FYI, the last one is written by me, heehee….
