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.
