Fangirling Chinese Novels


Come & Eat, Shan Shan (杉杉来吃) – Gu Man (Chapter 39)


Feng Teng vs Shan Shan
Simple like a child

Haha, you’ve been tricked by lidge’s picture in the last chapter, go and throw rotten eggs at her:P This chapter is rather short so I’ve included a bonus. I found the captions in baidu utilising a picture from the drama filming of a chess game between Shan Shan & Feng Teng. Feng Teng tries to teach Shan Shan how to play chess on Lunar New Year’s Eve when she stays in his house. They are pretty funny so I got decembi to translate them and share with all of you so a big thank you to her.

Come & Eat, Shan Shan (杉杉来吃) – Gu Man (Chapter 38)


Happy New Year! The gist of this chapter story relates to the picture above, which is self-explanatory. The picture is chosen by lidge so any future complain should be directed to her, lol.  The story is slowly winding down as I have only three more chapters to go, sob sob….

On the other hand, the drama has just started filming in Shanghai. It is confirmed Zhao Li Ying is Xue Shan Shan and Zhang Han is Feng Teng. Mel got her wish because I think Feng Teng will have a rival in the drama, which will be acted by Huang Ming, without the Xiao:P

Come & Eat, Shan Shan Radio Drama Translated Trailer by Vigorious Workshop



Happy Birthday Phong! Wish you get to spend it happily with your big tiger in a sweet garden but make sure he gets to eat the cake only and not you, lol. With such short notice, I don’t know what present to give to the number 1 supporter of Come and Eat, Shan Shan and my blog. Since you love Shan Shan and Feng Teng so much, I will give them to you, haha, their radio drama trailer translation only:P You told me that you don’t really like the voice of Feng Teng in the Sound of Wing production which I translated. How do you and others like the voices of Shan Shan & Feng Teng in this version?

Come & Eat, Shan Shan (杉杉来吃) – Gu Man (Chapter 37)

2007921114523794_2 20071218231010119_2

This is a cute chapter on Shan Shan going shopping with Feng Teng. Ladies, you’ve been warned of the consequence of going shopping with your boyfriend if he has a wicked sense of humour like Feng Teng, lol. Then, we also have that silly novelist Shuang Yi with her equally wicked sense of humour, haha… Actually, I like Shuang Yi more than Shan Shan because she is smarter and more humourous. According to Gu Man, her boyfriend Ning Ning is around Feng Teng’s age so my guess is right that Feng Teng’s age is between 29 to 31 years old as Ning Ning is 30 years old as per Silly and Elite.

Come & Eat, Shan Shan (杉杉来吃) – Gu Man (Chapter 36)

be6ef2deb48f8c5433812abe3b292df5e1fe7f94This is a difficult chapter to translate because it is long and suggestive, plus Lidge and I are sick. It is a very important chapter so you need to pay full attention or else you’ll miss something significant, lol. Don’t ask me anything, just use your imagination, haha….

How Your Favourite Novelists Look Like? – Part 1


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.

Come & Eat, Shan Shan (杉杉来吃) – Gu Man (Chapter 35)


‘Lei Ho’ (Hello) from Hong Kong:) The featured picture is Shan Shan sleeping while studying. It is also Lidge sleeping while proofreading, which is why updating has been slow lately, lol. Haha, just kidding! Lidge has been working hard to finish this before I go on my holidays so thank you. This chapter is mainly about a love rival with a love letter, but all is not what it seems to be!

Gu Man Comic Booklet – Gui Man’s Jiong Ji (Part 2)


Yah, I know this Turtle’s Embarassing Record is not something to shout home about as some of the jokes are not funny. It is probably because I don’t really understand them since I can’t read Chinese. As usual, I had a hard time getting people to read and help me with the translation. This is strictly for Gu Man’s fans only:) As for the actual comic book for Shan Shan, it will be released soon. I hope I can bring it home with me so that we can look at the cute pictures together. In the meantime, check out the preview in the featured picture.

Come & Eat, Shan Shan (杉杉来吃) – Gu Man (Chapter 34)


Konnichiwa from Tokyo:) This chapter is mostly about Feng Teng trying hard to persuade Shan Shan not to go to CPA exam preparatory classes so that she can spend more time with him. I don’t really agree with his action and find him kind of selfish and chauvinistic. Luckily, our Shan Shan stands firm as one should always strife to improve oneself. Also, in these few chapters, you get better insight as to why someone like Feng Teng will fall in love with someone like Shan Shan:)

Come & Eat, Shan Shan Radio Drama with English Subtitles (Part 3)


This is the last part of the released radio drama from Echo of Wings production. There are three more parts but they have not been released yet:( Later, maybe I’ll translate the radio drama from another equally good production so you can compare and contrast. I will be away on holidays so update will be on a fortnightly basis until I come back in Dec. In the meantime, listen to this radio drama to refresh your memory as the first 18 chapters are the best and most funny.
