[Mainland Chinese Web Drama 2020] Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book 三生三世枕上书

Recommended Posts

What do I miss here? Now we are making sorrowless cakes? We are indeed the most loyal fans of ELOD :lol:, how come they haven't release the uncut version? :bawling:

Anyway, just a question that pops in my mind when I rewatch the drama, do you think FJ would defeat YCW during the competition to win the Pimpons fruit If YCW didn't under magic spell, so DH didn't have to "interfere" the match to break the spell, would FJ win againts YCW? 

I haven't read all the pages, so pardon me if I accidentally bring up the same topic/question again.

This idea came out of nowhere but I really wanna see Zhiyue and Zhihe face off. Honestly Zhihe holds more sway in Taichen but Zhiyue won’t be chased away by Dong Hua apparently.

Wait, who is zhiyue?

Though FJ was trained well by DH, and before that by her father, XY has more cultivation and was also taught by the Netherworld deity Xie Hualu. Prior to that XY used to challenge DH for duels, to which he managed to hold his own.

 

FJ will lose against XY in a swordfight. The Saha fruit contest however required skills in fighting on ice stakes, so FJ and XY had a good match in the show. In the book however, XY didn't join the competition.

 

I guess the loyalty is from liking plots and twists of the novels of the 3L3W universe, and the drama adaptations were fairly well portrayed. There's upcoming 4 books too to anticipate of. :)

Hello. Out of curiosity, is Fuling cake made from the same type of Fuling flowers that Dong Hua likes?

And oh yeah, there’s one thing i am confused about. Song Xuanren recently became emperor but how did he get a harem that fast? Did he marry them as crown prince? Or were they the previous emperor’s harem?

From the drama viewpoint, isn't it that before Song Xuan Ren is an emperor, he was already an adult and hence would have the privilege of having his own concubines/harem? Also, that SXR is bestowed the crown prince title from when he was born - the bone of contention of his elder half brother Prince Ying?

 

IIRC, the Ancient Chinese age of maturity is 20 for men and 15 for women, though there's also a mention of 16 for both sexes depending on which dynasty/period/era. You'll have to research that though to confirm if my memory is correct on the ages.

 

Should you check it further, you might want to find out which imperial dynasty have similar setup on ranks from the emperor to his citizens to that of Song Xuan Ren's. You'll have to consider as well the rankings and titles of SXR's concubines. That way, you can confirm if he inherited the harem of his father as his own, or in that time period, what would be done to a dead/former emperor's concubines.

I never thought of that he may have inherited the harem.

SXR was lucky, his step mum was actually so kind to him.

The ancient eras had different rules on their households. Anything can be possible to cater to the requirements of the one in power, or what they abide to depending on their norms and practices.

 

SXR was indeed very fortunate. When we usually hear of evil stepparent, this Empress Dowager loved and raised him as if he's her own son. 

 

It's nice that in the drama version, DH in one lifetime had a doting parent. ^_^

That's right. He did, didn't he? In the mortal realm, at least he was loved by his father and step mother. That is probably why he had a positive mindset and bravely set out to win Siu Jiu's heart. Even though SXR had the weight of the king's responsibility on him, he had alot more freedom to do what he liked  without life threatening repercussions.

Whereas poor SY, had hardly any parental love and was limited by political issues. No wonder he was such a negative and cautious character. Looking back, Vengo and the makeup crew did a great job. The SY post-Aranya's death looked depressed and unhealthy.

SXR in the adaptation was indeed fortunate with his stepmother (though not with the half-brother). Whereas DH only had foster parents that were lukewarm with him, SY has a mother who didn't treat him as her son, but someone to deify.

 

...He was the foreordained Archmage. His mother treated his birth as an honor and never regarded him as her son. Since she worshiped him more than she loved him, he hadn't ever tasted the feeling of love... (PB2, p307)

 

In the show, be it as SXR, SY, or as himself, DH is very devoted and dedicated to the one he loves. Not to say he doesn't commit mistakes along the way, or miscalculates the repercussions, but mostly he does or decides something with FJ as the focal point. 

 

SXR would have had no real troubles really to be married to Xiao Jiu except that she was there in mortal realm to facilitate his trials. DH's most grievous misstep of giving the Saha fruit FJ won to JH, has been meant to cure the demon princess and set himself free from taking care of her. It would have been one less burden for DH since JH is encroaching his space and cramping his style to court FJ. 

 

For the tragic SY, his efforts to work behind the scene to save Aranya all went to naught because he didn't say anything to her that she can hold on to. Worse, he left her without bidding his farewells as if it didn't matter that she asked him to wait for her. 

 

It still breaks the heart that while he's in his garden tending to his plants, at peace with the assumption that Aranya is safe, his princess was fighting at the battlefield, dying for her subjects.

 

Vengo studied his role well. Though it would have been preferable that he didn't have those puzzling "antennae" hair, it is remarkable that SY in the show only smiled once, and it's for Aranya FJ as he tells her she's invited to the meteor watching banquet. He was pale and sad all throughout. It's...how a man with centuries of regrets would look.

It would have been interesting to see how Dong Hua would react to feeling the despair SXR and SY felt. Probably he would have just told Feng Jiu he loved her first and foremost.

Question: with regards to Song Xuanren’s brother, surely he must have known the dude hated him if he wanted to sabotage the hunt for birds?

Perhaps so, as he did in the show. DH himself is new to the whole lot of myriad of emotions he started to feel, including what's being in love feels like.

 

He says he's no good saying "nifty" words, LOL. He's quite upfront though when asked what FJ meant to him. Registration of their marriage is practically what he did first as soon as they're back to Jiuchongtian.

We peel it first I believe and cut it to smaller pieces before steaming them. Average time of steaming is about 10 minutes or steam till it soften.

DH and FJ are both have the 'all or nothing' type of mentality.

DH was so patient. Thinking back, DH may not say much and have a poisonous tongue, but he was patient and forgiving to people around him. 

 

SY's EQ is just as bad as DH's. 

The saving grace was at least SY knew how much AY loved him. 

Sadly, AY's passed away thinking she forever unwanted and unloved.

Hi my fellow dongfeng shippers.

As I’m back to routine and “new normal” as they said it, life been change a lot. Glad to know at least the forum remain the same and lively as before :).

Can only repeat one or two ELOD episode per week now and still amused by our dongfeng. My friend told me that she read in some other cdrama forum that they can’t stand watch pillowbook and no chemistry between the lead makes me wonder if they actually watch the same version as me ;). Well haters always gonna be haters i guess. 
And I’m so thrilled that I managed to get to make the sorrowless pastry looks a like in the tai chen palace from the recipe that I found in this forum and they actually taste pretty good. Would like to share the pic but don’t know how to. Lol. 
Anyway that’s all from me, just want to say hello and get my ELOD addiction fix.:P

Prince Ying, if you noticed, is passive aggressive. Says something, does another thing. The bird hunting sabotage was quite subtle - a thoroughbred horse suddenly keeling over, then later on he was offering SXR some of his hunts. 

 

He only gave himself away at the tombstone mêlée when the Lingbi stone was so near, yet so far, as SXR foiled his staging the invasion of the enemies he colluded with to grab the throne.

I rather think DH is that paradox of a patient and forgiving being, and yet, he is also vengeful and intolerant.

 

DH and SXR were both patient and forgiving. SXR didn't execute right there and then XJ and YQT after they betrayed and humiliated him. DH has all the reasons to slay XY after he was trapped in the evil lotus land, but he did not (though he did beat him up later :lol:).

 

SY and DH are both willing to follow through no matter how much bitter it would be to extract justice and revenge. SY used up his cultivation to live in the dream realm after he took all other seasons except winter in Fanyin Valley, and DH absorbing the Qiushui poison to make sure and drive the point that in all eternity, he will never have to lay his eyes on JH again.

Awesome! To post pics, you can either use Imgur, or perhaps, if you have Twitter/Pinterest/FB, you can post the pics and then share the link here.

The leads have that chemistry in abundance, way back from TMOPB. They were perfect as DH and FJ that fans really pushed for them to reprise their roles in the PB drama adaptation. ^_^

i made my sorrowless pastry! Kind of disappointed though. It doesn’t taste that sweet and it just tastes like potato....why is this called a pastry again?

it was difficult to make it. The yam mash was so sticky, I couldn’t wrap it around the purple filling. In the end I had to stuff them into the mold.

any idea what went wrong?

on the bright side, my mom liked it. And you can make it sweeter by adding sugar...lots of sugar in my case because I have a sweet tooth.

It's suppose to be really sticky like glue since there's sugar on it. When its really sticky just keep on folding on top of each other again again apparently from what I learn it get's 'less sticky' and you can mold it into balls like shape. Don't worry it took me 15 tries to make a perfect mooncake and 25 tries to make a perfect macaroons. Sometimes you have to try again and again till is perfect :)
