Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.12

And so, Yang Wei Qi had gone to the countryside for work and then after completing the work there, she had extended her vacation there without Zheng Xie’s knowledge. Even their last telephone conversation, when she suddenly asked Zheng Xie if he loves her, he only vaguely replied that he really likes her. Is Yang Wei Qi having a second thought about their marriage? Will we be able to find out today?  Continue reading “Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.12”

Boss相亲笔记 – Boss’s Blind Date Notes

Hi everyone. Tinkerbellsan decided to start translating as well while taking it as an opportunity to learn and improve her Mandarin (yeah!). Since it is her first time doing this, I would be helping her in the editing and proof-reading. So her post would not be regular (depending on her schedule and my availability as well), but we are targeting at least 1 post per week to start with and hopefully to be able to gradually increase the frequency of posting each chapter. So, do bear with us in the meantime and should you think that you cannot wait, we recommend that you wait till the novel is completed before starting to read them.

Tinkerbellsan had chosen a light and entertaining book written by 诡霜 (Guǐ Shuāng) titled Boss 相亲笔记 (translated into English – Boss’s Blind Date Notes). She found this novel through Shushengbar – Boss 相亲笔记 and found it entertaining enough for her to try her hand on translation. Continue reading “Boss相亲笔记 – Boss’s Blind Date Notes”

Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.11

As I have mentioned at the start of Chapter 27, this is an extremely long chapter. With today’s chapter, we are only half-way through the chapter. I hope towards the end of Chapter 27 is the turning point between He He, Zheng Xie, Yang Wei Qi and Cen Shi. When I decided to start a translation project, I had in fact searched for a short novel not realizing that this novel although is only 35 chapters + 4 epilogue, in fact is truly a long novel. Luckily the story is interesting enough to get me going and is determine to complete the novel. Continue reading “Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.11”

Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.10

A happy Monday! Have a fantastic week ahead everyone. Where have time flown by?

In the last chapter, Zheng Xie had ‘accidentally’ hurt Cen Shi. Is it accidental or he is doing it deliberately because he was upset with He He? 

Some interesting conversation between He He and Cen Shi. He He is still denying how she feels about Zheng Xie….. Sigh! I wonder when we will get to read about He He admitting to how she truly feels? Continue reading “Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.10”

C-Drama Review : Les Interpretes (亲爱的翻译官)

French is a beautiful language. And because I did a French Diploma majoring in Hospitality Services, the language became one of my favorite language. So, when Les Interpretes (亲爱的翻译官), also known as The Interpreter started to air recently, I was eagerly looking forward to the drama. Continue reading “C-Drama Review : Les Interpretes (亲爱的翻译官)”

Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.6

Thank you everyone for all the comments and feelings shared on yesterday’s post. Instead of individually replying to each and every of your comment, I decided to write about it in today’s post before introducing what we are in for today. Firstly, I must say that reading all your comments and feelings actually helped to make my otherwise very tough day at work. Although I was not able to reply all, I had truly enjoyed reading them. 

From all the comment, I guess everyone is as frustrated as I am about all three of them. And I do like Julie’s comment about how YWC was the one whom had always made the effort to call ZX and he just had no ‘balls’ to tell her at every opportunity that he had about how he truly feels and to call it off before it is too late. I am 100% agreeable on the comment about ZX letting HH and YWC dragging him around by his nose… that was really entertaining as I actually had the image of ZX being pulled around by the nose by the 2 ladies…. (anyone can imagine how that would look like?)  Continue reading “Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.6”
