Chapter 5 – Castle in the Time (Time City) 时光之城 by 皎皎 Jiao Jiao

Surprise! Happy to see the new chapter today being posted?

3 years ago, when I first took up the offer for a Work From Home role, many people who heard about it was very envious. Constantly, I have people coming to tell me how lucky I am… how it is so nice to be WFH. What people refused to believe when I shared the experience of WFH where workload is actually much more than working in the office environment. 

The situation today almost worldwide had given people the chance of first hand experience with WFH. Today, people understand the struggling of keeping the work life balance when working from home. 

Work have been crazily busy especially over the past weeks. It have been stressful as well. So I actually took my annual leave once a week to have a little bit of ‘Me’ time. So today, my ‘Me’ time involve translation of this chapter for everyone. 

Happy Reading!

And to everyone out there… the current epidemic is very serious. Please take the #socialdistancing and any #stayathome request by the leaders of your country seriously. Stay healthy and safe wherever you are.

Chapter 1.1 – Castle in the Time (Time City) 时光之城 by 皎皎 Jiao Jiao

Hi everyone. Surprise! Indeed… mhryu is back for now… 

It is the 5th day of MCO here where I am located. With the restriction in place and everyone playing their part, my activities over the past 2 days were reading novels, cook for meals… read and then I decided to pick up translation. Trust me, it can be frustrating as there are many people in the country not taking this seriously. While for me, it is frustrating as I just came out of self-quarantine period of 3 weeks (2 weeks and then I was ill so I decided to take extra precaution and took additional 1 week to continue my self-quarantine) just not too long ago after I returned after spending 16 days travelling around US, Cuba and Mexico in January / February 2020. I had to go back into quarantine again just less than 2 weeks after I came out of quarantine. So, one can imagine how I am feeling. 

While I am not sure how persistant I would be in getting this novel translated and completed within the year, I hope with the reduce in my workload (hopefully) with the current situation, I would be able to find the time. Of course it would also depend if my fella readers would like to read this novel.

So, after you had taken the time to read this 1st chapter, do share your thoughts if this novel have got your interest to continue reading. And mhryu would be happy to try to continue the project as often as she could. Happy Reading!

And to everyone out there… the current epidemic is very serious. Please take the #socialdistancing and any #stayathome request by the leaders of your country seriously. Stay healthy and safe wherever you are.

Chapter 64 (FINAL CHAPTER) – Finding Glowing Beauty in Books (书中自有颜如玉)

Happy International Women’s Day to all the wonderful women out there! 

Today is the final chapter of this exciting read. So I decided that it would be a super long one as I would not be breaking up the chapter. 

This is also my final post for now I guess. As everyone is aware, it has been extremely hard for me to find the time to do translation even to read novels online. So, I have decided to take the break from online translation for now. Never know, one day I might be back once I managed to stockpile and find a lovely novel to read. 

Once again, thank you everyone for the continuous support and patience over the years.

Happy Reading!
