Three Lives Three Worlds (三生三世) Mini-Special – Part 11


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….

The Pillow Book Original Theme Song by Tang Qi – English Translation

Beside translating Shan Shan the Chinese novel, Lidge is now dabbling in translating Chinese song. Such a talented girl who can’t read or speak Chinese, lol. She has just finished reading The Pillow Book One Viet version so I made her translate the song. I have edited them to the best of my ability. Since both of us are bananas who can’t read Chinese, please take what we’ve translated with a grain of salt. Just enjoy the melody and lyrics penned by Tang Qi. Oh, today is the 3 months anniversary of the blog, the 47th posts, lol. (A big thank you to Phong Nhi for helping me to put the subtitles and uploaded it to youtube).

Mini-Special on Tang Qi’s Ancient Novels – Part 10


I am doing something different this week. I won’t be focusing on any character but I will be featuring all of Tang Qi’s ancient novels. For those who did not read Hua Xu Yin, don’t worry as you can still understand the special. All you need to know is the protagonists in Hua Xu Yin are Su Yu (also known as Mu Yan) and Ye Zhen (also known as A Fu). They are a sweet & loving pair with an adorable pet tiger called xiao huang who loves to eat roast chicken. All the sub-plots in Hua Xu Yin can be considered sad tragedies:(  Nonetheless there is also some dry humour in that book which is Tang Qi’s trademark:)

I need to reiterate most of these specials are originally written by Tang Qi’s many talented fans in baidu. I only search, read, understand, compile, sort, translate, edit and modify with my ‘poetic license’:P

The Pillow Book Mini-Specials (Dong Hua Edition) – Part 6


It is with great sadness and reluctance for me to inform followers of the mini specials that this will be the final one. Since our Dijun is well-loved and has always been the one with the best punch lines, it is fitting for him to be featured in this final post.

Three Lives Three Worlds (三生三世) Mini-Special – Part 3


Today is the ‘full moon’ birthday of my baby blog so I am posting Part 3 as a thank you gift for your support:) Part 3 of the specials will focus more on Lian Song, a favourite with Mei, hamster & me:P He is the male lead in 3L3W Book 3 – Bu Shen Lian (Lotus). He likes Cheng Yu who tells the little dough all the naughty things he shouldn’t know. Dong Hua and him are best buddies. Bu Shen Lian has been posted online up to chapter 3 only and Tang Qi will resume writing it in Sept. Thus we’ll only get to read it in 2014:( Sorry Lidge, no little dough here but he’ll make a comeback in Part 4:). FYI, some of the specials are not written by Tang Qi but her talented fans. Anyway, they are all witty & funny so enjoy them !
