You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 2

Time flies so fast, 5 years have come and gone. Soon, it will be time for me to retire 😛 My first translated novel was written by one of my favorite authors, turtle Man. We may be slow but rest assured that we will crawl to the finishing line with you. The blog was originally setup by hui3r but she had gone AWOL. Who knows if she will come back or be gone forever? It was fated that I ended up taking over the blog and having hoju to fill the void left by her. I want to sincerely thank her for all her help and support throughout the years. I also want to thank bong and Chewywon, who always supply the blog with beautiful headers.

In addition, thank you for your continuing support but please be patient and considerate. I strive to do my best but real life will always intrude. This is merely a hobby for me, sharing something I like and enjoy in my spare time. It is by no means a way to make money or seek fame. For those who may not be aware, Fanatical has 3 index pages so if you want to provide links for hoju or/and my translations, please use them, not the third-party websites. I am sorry if not all your comments are answered or your requests granted but I do appreciate them. I hope that you’ll still continue to support the blog and celebrate more milestone with me.

To celebrate the blog reaching its milestone, I’ll start translating a new novel which is outside my comfort zone. I want to challenge myself to do something different and have been spending a considerable amount of time to research, learn and translate all the gaming terms into English. I even contemplated testing out the game to get a feel for it but unfortunately I don’t have time. Do leave me a comment if I’ve made any error or omission but don’t be too harsh on me 😛 This novel has a significant amount of online gaming component but I don’t play online game at all. Needless to say, I don’t play King of Glory, a very popular MOBA (Multiplayer online battle arena) game which this novel is largely based on. The picture above is the hero Xiao Qiao in the King of Glory game.

Wishing those who celebrate, a happy Lunar New Year in advance!

So, in two days, on Monday, February 12, it will be the 5th anniversary of this blog! Wow.

Cheng Muyun is under surveillance, but he still has his own mission. What do you think he wants to do? And how?

Life: A Black and White Film (一生一世,黑白影画) — Chapter 13.1

My apologies ahead of time. I will be absent from the blog for a short while and very likely not replying to comments. I am saying goodbye to my doggie and fur baby of 15 years. Will be back when ready. The next several posts have been pre-scheduled, so you will not miss anything. Cheers all. Every day, remind the ones you love just how much you love them.

Sometimes, the things most taken for granted by ordinary people are some of the most precious and longed-after things to other people.

Life: A Black and White Film (一生一世,黑白影画) — Chapter 12.5

Think anyone will anyone come to Cheng Muyun’s rescue? Anyone get a kick out of Cheng Muyun’s description of Fu Yiming? And lastly, with each read of this story, the last paragraph of this chapter affects me more and more. *sniffles*
