Zui Wu Dao. Part 2 -Chapter 13.

To my dear readers,

This chapter took me forever near the end. I’ve never told you guys, but I use the Chinese dictionary to help me translate. I probably use this at least a hundred times when I work on a chapter (I can understand the main idea when I read it on my own, but when I translate, I try to be as exact as possible). If I am still confused, I go on baidu (a Chinese search engine) to see how the word is used in a sentence. After that, I go on thesaurus.com to help broaden my vocabulary (because I don’t want to keep using the same words over and over again. Ex. “quickly”, “said”, “yelled”).

I also have to rewrite the sentence structure in a way that it make sense in English. (For greater understanding, if I were to say, “What do you want to do?” in Chinese, it would be, “You want do what?” We do not have a word for “to”). It can take forever.

Therefore, if you guys appreciate my work, please donate to me! Any amount is appreciated. It would mean so much to me.

Chapter 13     Ba Gua Stage

As a matter of fact, what Tian Yu Zi said were not all true. But one thing that is true is that Wu Dang  definitely has many different types of nei gong xin fa. The best xin fas are the ones that are the most difficult to learn; although it would depend on the person.

But Tian Yu Zi lied about something significant. The thing is, Tian Yu Zi actually cannot produce nei li. His body state didn’t allow him to learn it. As a result, he switched to wai gong instead. Wu Dang’s style was actually created by Tian Yu Zi. Although it didn’t consist of nei li, the amount of damage it could conceive was still quite substantial.

Recap

2015 New Year celebration

As 2015 draws to a close, I want to take the time to reflect on what I have gone through this year.

This year, I’m done quite a few things I never thought I would do.

  1. I started composing my own melody/songs (I never thought it was possible until I tried).
  2. I started blogging regularly (every Monday but I’ve been late lately *It’s 11:56PM right now*).
  3. I started creating raps (I never thought it was possible until I tried). You can read my first rap here
  4. I started translating a Chinese novel into English (I never thought I would translate a novel, especially when I’ve never actually read a book in Simplified Chinese before). It is definitely challenging, but it is not impossible. You can read my translation here
  5. I went speed dating (I never thought I would actually try something like that). It was an interesting experience. You can read about it here
  6. I went to hand out socks for the homeless. You can read about my experience here

I did a lot of things I never thought I would do. I guess I just wanted to experience newer things. I feel like most of the time, we try to convince ourselves of why we don’t want to do something because we’re afraid of failure.

Zui Wu Dao. Part 2 -Chapter 12.

To my dear readers,

Merry Christmas! I hope you guys spend the time happily with your loved ones. Don’t spend too much time reading translation novels online :P. Haha just kidding. Anyway, this chapter actually took me a whole afternoon/night to translate because I kept on getting distracted. It is hard to be a translator. 😦  I am kind of unmotivated at the moment. Nonetheless, I won’t quit.

Chapter 12     Oppressed

In regards to Tian Yu Zi, Xuan Luo didn’t know what to think. First and foremost, Tian Yu Zi was way too lax with his image. He did not act like his status at all. Although Tian Yu Zi gave him a friendly vibe, as a Master, he should be more serious.

Zui Wu Dao. Part 2 -Chapter 11.

To my dear readers,

Sorry, I’m slow again. I honestly wish I was less lazy and that I could translate everyday. But sadly, I do not have enough passion, brain power and self-motivation to do so. (I’ve checked out some of the other translators and they are so hardcore. Some of them love translating and are addicted. Unfortunately, I’m not. lol) Nonetheless, I hope you like this chapter.

Chapter 11     Bummed out

Xuan Luo was bummed out. He didn’t know what type of clash he had; perhaps he should have looked at the calendar beforehand. (This is related to superstition. Chinese people follow a lunar calendar and it will tell you which days are lucky or not).

My observations of men and women (In general)

men vs women

Disclaimer: This is based on my experiences. There are definitely people who do not fall under what I say as well. Please do not be offended.

Throughout my years, I’ve noticed some extreme differences between guys and girls.

Here is what I have noticed about guys:

They tend to be more logical. For example: If taking Route A will get them to their destination without issues, they will continue taking Route A from now on.

Zui Wu Dao. Part 2 -Chapter 10.

To my dear readers,

This chapter took me nearly 4 hours because it was so long. o____O. I hope you like it. I had to make some adjustments because some of the words do not exist in English (or I didn’t know how to translate).

Anyhow, this is my promoted post: The Glass <– This is a motivational story written by me. The glass itself was inspired by an instagram post. Please read ❤

Chapter 10     Tian Yu Zi

“Master! I have brought him in.” said Lu Hu politely.

The hair of the two elders were graying white. Xuan Luo felt unease: They are the Masters of Wu Dang? Why are they so old? And why does one of them have a bird’s nest on his head?

Zui Wu Dao. Part 2 -Chapter 9.

To my dear readers,

Instead of sleeping, I rushed this chapter for you guys! Oh my goodness. I sacrificed my drama time too (I like to watch dramas, haha). It’s hard to be a translator because I have to push myself to translate. No one pays me and it’s hard work (because my Chinese sucks). Nonetheless, I hope you guys like it though. This chapter is really good!!!!! I know it took quite awhile, but FINALLY SOMETHING IS HAPPENING!!?!? Haha.

Okay, here is my promoted post: The World In Green <– This is a story that I pretty much created. It’s good! Please read. ❤

Chapter 9       Xuan Wu Stone Sculpture

In front of Xuan Luo was a gigantic stone sculpture. The stone sculpture was a carving of a tortoise. The tortoise was staring straight, and its mouth was open in a surprised way; as if he wanted to shout. When Xuan Luo looked up, he was shocked. Above the tortoise, there was a python. The python had tightly wrapped itself around the tortoise; its top part was still loose, as if squeezing the tortoise wasn’t tiring at all.
