This is for those who are suffering from the drama withdrawal syndrome lol. I think the next update will be after the broadcast of The Pillow Book drama 😛 Tang Qi is busy writing Lotus Step which is Lian Song’s story. Only a few chapters have been released. After that, she will continue with Mo Yuan’s story in Bodhi Fate (also only a few chapters have been released). Be patient. As far as I know the author has a good full time job so writing is only her part-time job. Also, it takes a long time to write a good novel as you need to go through many drafts to perfect it. Let’s hope she will take the time to write a good novel and not copy other people’s work.
It is not easy to compile specials where Feng Jiu has the upper hand as all of you know our Dijun has a higher IQ than Feng Jiu and always manages to gain the upper hand 😛 Thank you to hamster for contributing number six.
Thank you for your concern. The blog, hoju and I are still well and alive. If there is no update for more than half a year, then you should start to worry 😛 I am annoyed to discover that a website posted my mini-specials without linking or crediting me. When I am annoyed, I’ve no mood to do anything. Needless to say, they also didn’t ask for my permission. I want to reiterate that I don’t want anything on this blog to be re-posted anywhere in this world. It is even more irritating that they can’t even copy well. They only copied the text but not my pretty pictures. I can’t stand having such an imperfect and ugly copy floating around. Whenever I find any pretty pictures or any grammar/spelling errors, I’ll update my posts continuously.
To celebrate the ending of the drama Eternal Love, I’ve dug up something which I’ve not posted before to share with you. Hamster also translated number nine from her Pillow Book artbook.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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
I am supposed to write this challenge sometime ago but I’ve been procrastinating until now, the end of the month. I better wash my hand of this as I realised I am someone who doesn’t like to take up challenge, too stressful. Hui3r, you can do all your challenges and I’ll comment whenever I want, hehe…I like most of my male characters so I do not really rank them because I don’t like to play favouritism.
Did you enjoy reading Lidge and my comments on the top 35 favourite male characters in chinese romance novels? Are they similar to your rankings? Since I ranted so much on it, I gonna do my own favourite list. However I am not going to do 35. Instead I am going to elaborate on three from different book genre which you can probably guess from looking at the pictures. It is the quality not the quantity that counts, haha…
Yeah, it is three lives, three worlds special time! This week we have got guests who time travel from Hua Xu Yin. I’ve translated some sugar sweet scripts as well as some sour like lemons one to offer you a more balanced reading experience, heehee…Also, the first one is written by me, nice or not, haha?
