Finished episode 9

i love Song Xuan Ren!

we finally see Jiheng’s vanity. Nothing to do in a hut but stare at her reflection. Seriously???

i admit I am disappointed with Feng Jiu’s décision to see Dong Hua. What happened to avoiding him? Besides, he’s supposed to suffer in his trial. Though if she never visited him, she wouldn’t have been able to stop Jiheng.

I like SXR too. He is honest, sweet, protective, loyal and forgiving. 

 

Don't forget, FJ want to pay back her debt. But I think it's partially an excuse. FJ will dive right in, whenever she thinks DH may be endanger, to the point she ignores her own safety.

Finished episode 10 and I gotta say, i really doubt Jiheng died from a head bonk when she is an immortal.

If only...alot of suffering would have been avoided.

Fresh out of the oven! ELOD translation team presents author Tang Qi's 7th epilogue for The Pillow Book. We hope you get the joke because it is hilariously funny to the bones!!!    Source : @

Ok - for those wondering what Vengo said during his interview (I only translated up to this point. The rest was his message for his love rivals, which I won't go into, his appreciation to viewers for

The ELOD translation team have finally completed the English translation of Tang Qi's latest Pillow Book Epilogue. We hope you will enjoy the read! Shameless DH in action yet again!   S

Question: when Dong Hua beat up Xiao Yan, when was it exactly? After he lost his fox or soon after he escaped from the ten lotus prison? Because Jiheng did plead for Dong Hua to let him off and he agreed.

And you know how those early episodes had advertisements? One of them was Diliraba sponsoring Feng Jiu clothes? Not sure. There were no subtitles. Does anyone know where I could find them?

In the book, there's no such conversation. In the drama DH agreed to let him off in Ep4. But that doesn't mean he and XY can't fight again. LS also said so in Ep26. ^_^

 

Then he summed it all up with a sense of regret: “Of course you finally broke out of the trap and gave Yan Chiwu such a brutal lesson even his parents couldn't recognize him. But he’s still one of the seven Demon lords. Such disgrace was too much for him to bear. He now wants to have a rematch so he can wipe away the old humiliation.”(PB1, p51)

 

In the book, he had another duel with XY after DH left baby fox FJ in Tai Chen Palace.

 

Her cries immediately halted in her throat. Once she stopped, he stepped closer and stroked her head. “Be good and listen to Zhonglin. I’ll come back for you once I take care of everything.” She stared up at him, and at long last finally nodded in defeat. 


Fengjiu sighed. Everything that happened seemed like yesterday. Several days went by but Donghua didn’t come back for her. In the end she couldn't wait anymore and tricked Zhonglin into removing the force field. On her way to look for Donghua, she met Siming at the South Heaven Gate. In the past, she hadn’t thought anything significant could happen in those few days, but now that centuries had passed, she learned from listening to Yan Chiwu that there had been quite a few things which transpired, and they were all significant. 


This was the latter half of the story between herself, Donghua, and Jiheng that she hadn’t known before. 


In the days Donghua went missing, he had gone to look for Warrior Xiao Yan for another duel. Warrior Xiao Yan glossed over this event with careful screening and pruning. Mr. Yan wiped his nose and concluded, “After the fight, he should've scrammed back to where he came from. For what reason did he wander around Mount Baishui?” 

 

Fengjiu wore a large leaf she found by the cliff-side to keep the blistering sun out. She answered Xiao Yan, “Maybe he had time left after the fight, so he went to Mount Baishui looking for the Longnao plant and the Blue...”

 

Her words hit a touchy spot in Warrior Xiao Yan's sensitive heart. His angry and hurt eyes pushed back the word ‘lotus’ from coming out of Fengjiu's mouth. 


“Look at my strapping body. Am I a chum in your eyes? How could he go sightseeing after a fight with me?” 

 

Fengjiu gamely looked back at Xiao Yan. She calmly fixed the leaf atop her head and replied, “Of course not. What I meant was… maybe he went to Mount Baishui looking for herbs to treat his wounds.” (PB1, p133)

 

LOL. DH actually went to Mt Baishui to look for herbs to treat FJ's wounds. :)

Dong Hua, Dong Hua, treat your pet first then go brawling. Xiao Yan isn’t going anywhere.

Since DH can duel and collect the medicinal herbs in one trip...This XY deserves a lot of trashing because his recklessness started the DH FJ JH mess.

 

From challenging Xuyang's wedding arrangement of JH to DH, soul jade shattering, FJ becoming an ordinary fox, even JH getting poisoned at Mt Baishui. 

 

What's funny is that XY wants JH for himself but his impulsive and thoughtless acts only brought her to his "rival" closer rather than to him as he hoped.

Finished episode 11

love how Xuanren falls in love, but disappointed he was planning on visiting Chu Wan a few days later (he made the decision before his tumble into the lake)

Jiheng is becoming easier to dislike with her cunning attitude. Before, she was a victimised princess forced into a marriage she didn’t want. Here, she wants to steal a national treasure. Hmm...I guess because Dong Hua was doing the planning, she didn’t have a chance to show off her cunning before.

what an unpleasant boss that Ying king is.

did anyone else cringe when Xiao Jiu was finally introduced properly? Her staring and reason for being a guard made me cringe so much.

That was more of courtesy as Chu Wan is, after all, the peacekeeping bride from another state.

I don't know if sub texts are lost in translation or the script was really like that, but me...

 

I would have preferred that the dialogue would have been about SXR admiring the skills of Xiao Jiu, and he himself asking that he(she) join the army or be as one of the palace guards. Not XJ asking to live there as a reward.

As promised, I decided to try my hand at making sorrowless pastries again. This time the mortal version. Sadly it still looked purple and white cos food colouring didn’t work. It tasted much better cos I added more sugar. And the purple potatoes were so much easier to mash. The yams were still chunky though. It was still hard to make them look presentable. Bottom line: first attempt looked decent but tasted meh. Second attempt tasted better but looked meh.

I am currently watching another C-Drama- half heartedly, as I keep going back to ELOD, and if it's not ELOD it's TMOPB... 

 

I have re-read and re-watched ELOD... I have even made a half serious attempt at reading  "To the sky kingdom" ( :crazy: ) Something is seriously wrong with me...

I'm rather disappointed I haven't been able to move on yet. :cries3:

I hope we'll have Lotus Step soon... I need something else from the realm of TQ to devour.

Don't worry, you aren't alone. ^_^ I watched a few trailers of others, but most aren't appealing to me. Except for one, slice of life type of show, to binge watch later. I still watch either ELOD or TMOPB too while chilling.

Ahahaha! Joking aside, it's difficult to be tired or over them. More than the poignant stories in several points of the protagonists' lives, the actors and actresses are top notch for both. Their eyes speak, and they're just so appealing.

The preview 24 chapters of Lotus Steps is wonderful reading even if it was only through the browser's auto-translated text which can be really confusing. Can't wait for the whole story to unfold. :)

That is very true. Rarely I feel that drawn in and I'm missing that pull now with other dramas. 

 

I tried reading LS with auto translate but I think I'd rather read the lousy translated "To the sky kingdom" in all it's crappy galore- at least I can make sense of what is written. :lol: Patience, patience, I must cultivate me some...

TMOPB and ELOD raised the bar of "letting the eyes do the talking and acting". ^_^ 

 

The auto-translated text is oftentimes confusing or so funny, hahaha! It's like reading something written by a toddler, hahaha!

 

To The Sky Kingdom is a bit of struggle to read, but I agree, it's easier to understand than auto-translated text. I sometimes wish it was done (translated)  better and that the TMOPB title was kept rather than change it.

I agree with you on the title, it just doesn't cut it. Regarding the translation overall: It's still better than nothing. But after watching the drama and reading the pillow book it feels like it's from a different author. Even though I don't really know due to not having read the original Chinese version, I believe one can tell things got lost in translation and not just the title and names. I wonder how the translation came about as there is no official translation for pillowbook...

 

Also... can I just say: I really like Mo Yuan... I missed him in ELOD at the wedding- and rescue scenes.

TTSK's translation is more clinical, and it's horrible reading the anglicised names; The translator didn't have to do it. I'd have rather she poured her energy to translate in the same context and feel as the author, which she barely did.

 

TPB English translation might be unofficial, but I daresay the work of the fans (Hamster, et.al) has more heart and as close enough feel as how TQ wrote it. Many of ELOD's subbed texts are so similar to the translation of the book.

I think we can all agree on that the translation of TMOPB left much to be desired.

Unfortunately we'll have to make do and fortunateley we have fan translations of TQ's other work. :) Perhaps one day we'll have a better English version.

I had one sorrowless pastry for breakfast. Don’t microwave for more than one minute as it starts steaming in less than that.

it is agreed I will never be doing this again cos it isn’t a hot fav among my family.

and actually...does this count as pastry when it is pretty much potatoes and yams... I am pretty sure the sorrowless pastry is supposed to have a floral taste.

i recommend making snowskin Oreo mooncakes. It is way, way easier and it lasts longer in the fridge.

I am the same. I start watching some dramas and lose interest very quickly. I think the issues are the unoriginal storylines and lack of spark between the main leads.

 

I am watching Miss S. Murder mystery and Romance. Vengo is in it and the drama is a great production. Vengo does all the right moves in the drama, but the spark is missing in his eyes. 

However, I am enjoying the drama overall.

I am wondering...the public reason Dong Hua chose to join the deity clan. Who came up with that reason? Chonglin or a deity who wanted to boast of his clan’s virtues?

and Dong Hua’s promise to let Feng Jiu live a free life...what exactly does that mean? It’s not like he would have cared about following normal procedures. And Feng Jiu is a Queen, she will have to obey normal rules sometime.
