How Your Favourite Novelists Look Like? – Part 1

U1057P112T164D2447F3176DT20090316091940

Have you ever wondered how your favourite Chinese novelists look like? I have decided to become a private detective like Sherlock Holmes for a few days to research and dig out their photos for you. I have tried my best but I cannot guarantee all those pictures are real. Some authors have many pictures available online and I have chosen those which look the most natural and clear. Curiosity kills the cat so you’ve been warned:P

Do your favourite authors look like your imaginations? Are you shocked or surprised by their photos? There are more to come so stay tune for Part 2 if you are curious to know how Feng Nong who is the author of A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated and Fresh Gor Gor who is the author of Hua Qian Gu plus many others look like.

Three Lives Three Worlds Mini- Special (Dong Feng Edition) – Part 16

Wah, Dong Hua and Feng Jiu won the favourite couple poll by a landslide. Thus, you are rewarded with a special on the most loved couple. According to Tang Qi’s official weibo, she will finish writing the draft for The Pillow Book 2 today as a birthday gift to her editor. Thus we won’t need to wait much longer for the publication of the book.

I also have a gift for my readers which is a Chinese fan-made MV with English subtitles. Actually Lidge and I have translated that sometime ago without putting the subtitles in a MV. The dialogue in the MV are included in that post. A big thank you to Phong Nhi for helping me to put the subtitles and uploaded it to youtube. Happy Mid-Autumn Festival, everyone! Enjoy looking at the moon and eating mooncake:)

This time, we will have a poll as to whether you like Dong Hua Dijun or Bai Feng Jiu better.

50 Most Loving Couples in Chinese Novels Pictorials

20090110193859

I have posted influential novels as well as attractive male characters and favourite male characters poll results. I am not going to post attractive female characters because I strongly disagree with most of the rankings. Instead, I am going to post 50 most loving couples. I am also not really satisfied with this rankings.  Where are my Yun Ge & Ling gege or Yu’er & Huo Qu Bing? There is only 1 couple each from Tong Hua and Xin Yi Wu’s novels and none from Fei Wo Si Cun’s novels. However, the couples from Big Grey Wolf With Wings’ novels are over-represented and I don’t fancy most of them. In addition, there is a BL couple. I will not be writing any comment in this post, as you can read them in my previous posts but I expect you to make plenty:P I am posting some loving pictures for you to drool on, lol. I have painstakingly searched for the most appropriate pictures as I find the pictures from the source material are not good enough.

Three Lives Three Worlds Mini- Special (Couples Edition) – Part 15

541e50cf3bc79f3d3daaeee7bba1cd11738b2945

This week mini-special will be on the five couples in Three Live Three Worlds. Do you know all of them? I’ve also included a poll to select the most loved couple. I guess the winner will be either Ye Hua & Bai Qian or Dong Feng pair. Anyway, this is just for fun only, so no hard feeling except maybe Dijun will take out his Cang He sword if he doesn’t win the poll, lol. I bet most of you don’t know who is Shao Wan. She is the ancestor goddess of the Ghoul Clan (Xiao Yan’s ancestor) and will have a love-hate complicated relationship with Mo Yuan, Bai Qian’s ‘shifu’ and also Ye Hua’s brother.

78fec71190ef76c6f284b4dd9d16fdfaae516791

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?

100 Most Attractive Male Characters in Chinese Internet Novels – Part 1

u=2473806711,3080487296&fm=23&gp=0u=3371071485,2604294733&fm=21&gp=0

I did 35 Favourite Male Characters before but this is 100 Most Attractive Male Characters:P There is I think 2 overlaps only which are number 92 (no. 35) and number 73 (no. 27). I won’t write anything on books which I’ve not read or know nothing about. In future if I do read them, I’ll edit this post. Please contribute if you’ve read them. This time I’ll include some notable quotes from some books instead of getting Lidge to write some comments since like me, she has not read most of the books. Some are just too lengthy or heavy duty for us. I bet most of you will not be happy with at least one of the ranking. I didn’t compile this list so don’t throw tomatoes at me:P I’ll include the baidu source in part 2. Do stay tune for that because someone you know will be there, hint hint, lol.

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
