You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 23

Some of you have been wondering if I’ve abandoned this novel. No, because hoju and I’ve never abandoned any novel translation before. Once we’ve started, we’ll persevere to the end. Just that like the turtle, I take longer to reach the finishing line 🙂 I’ve been busy with real life as well as life as Wallace Chung’s fan in facebook 🙂 I’ll try to pick up the pieces and continue to update on a more regular basis now that hoju is taking her much deserved break. I know it is kind of irresponsible to leave my readers with no update for a while but as I’ve mentioned this before, I’ve no posting schedule and I am doing this merely as a hobby which I can put down and pick up.

Like most drama and novel, once you reach the middle part, there is bound to be some fillers and this chapter is obviously one. This is another reason why I was not that motivated to translate on a timely manner 😛

For those who are awaiting update on Shushengbar, the good news is that hamster had bought a new domain name. The problem is migrating the old content to the new domain name due to the usage of sub-domain name in the old site. Chancy has been too busy to sort this out. We’ve a volunteer Amy who has been very helpful. So, hopefully the new site can be up and running by Christmas.

The Healing Sunshine (一厘米的阳光) — Epilogue *NOVEL COMPLETED*

Side Note: While there has been no official announcement, the station that bought the airing rights for Go Go Squid! (drama adaptation of the novel, Stewed Squid with Honey) has created a page for the drama and put the airing date as January 1, 2019. Take this with a grain of salt and wait for the official news, but that gives you an approximate idea.

We have come to the end of The Healing Sunshine‘s translation. I’ve shed many tears for it as I had to immerse myself in it more than ever in order to hopefully, in translation, capture all those emotions that are within the novel. And so, exhausted, joyful that this couple has been given a happy ending, slightly melancholic over what they have gone through and what they will have to face in the future with Jì Chengyang’s health, and rather sad as I’m going to miss this couple, I bid farewell to Xixi and Little Uncle Jì. Hopefully you have enjoyed the story and perhaps, like me, have felt for not just the leads of the story but the other characters as well. Thank you for those who have come with me as I also walked alongside Xixi in her growth journey. I appreciate all the support you have given, love your comments, and am grateful to just have you guys around. 🙂 Post includes the epilogue, the author’s afterword, and some remarks from me to close off this project.

This is a heartwrenching epilogue, but in some ways, it provides closure. We now have a glimpse into some of the details we were missing before.

The Healing Sunshine (一厘米的阳光) — Final Chapter (Part 2 of 2)

And with this post, the main story has reached its ending! One epilogue to follow.

My promise has been kept; it is the happy ending you have all waited for. It may not be extravagant, it may not be what you expected, but the ending he gave her is the ending she has always wanted—Jì Chengyang style.

The Healing Sunshine (一厘米的阳光) — Chapter 26.2

Love that has not been translated into action is not really love. You will see through Jì Chengyang’s actions that his care for Xixi was never simply out of convenience. You will see the extent he considered her in the past and continues to do so for the future. *sniffles* At last, the right that was once stripped from Xixi has been taken back, and she can again freely walk through every corner that contains her childhood memories. (So, so, so grateful that Jì Chengyang has family that supports him and has always treated Xixi so well.)
