너 밖에 없다는 말 

Is so overrated.

This.

I love such snarky writing. Would totally buy these postcards! The people behind it must be such wonderful people lolol.

Am I the only one who hates it / have no idea how to react when people say that? Most of the time it’s just a way to get you to do more things for them.

Oh well.

I’m still in my c-period novel obsession mood and I might take some time to get out of it.

You know how when you have just read a beautiful piece of writing and you have no idea how to read any other books because it’s just not comparable? And you find yourself desperately wanting to read something similar? No?

Hahaha maybe it’s just me.

In any case, I am very very very very impressed with a c-period novel I just read. Possibly the most poetic and beautiful novel I have read in Chinese – the writing at least. I totally fell in love with it. No wonder they called it 诗化小说 (poetic novel).

For those who are interested, it’s 天配良缘之陌香 by 浅绿.

若你有幸為她所愛,這一生,上窮碧落下黃泉,她將與你不離不棄
情之所以為情,並非轟轟烈烈才令人心馳神往

而是平淡如細水長流,才最讓人眷戀……

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I’m quite a fast reader normally but I find myself slowing down for this novel, wanting to appreciate every phrase and sentence. I liken it to enjoying a cup of good tea – 需細細品嚐.

The female lead is also possibly my all time top favourite character and she’s totally the kind of person I aspire to be (but totally not able to lolol). Normally I fangirl over the male lead but this time I find myself perfectly fine without him lol.

If you like stories with really well fleshed out characters (those you will love to bits), try Tong Hua. If you want beautiful writing, try this. ^^

The novel mentioned this poem and I found it hauntingly beautiful.

《一棵开花的树》

席慕蓉

如何让你遇见我

在我最美丽的时刻
为这

我已在佛前求了五百年
求它让我们结一段尘缘
佛于是把我化作一棵树

长在你必经的路旁
阳光下慎重地开满了花
朵朵都是我前世的盼望

当你走近

请你细听
颤抖的叶是我等待的热情

而你终于无视地走过

在你身后落了一地的
朋友啊 那不是花瓣

是我凋零的心

If you can read in Chinese, I would definitely recommend you to try this! ^^

Would appreciate more novel recommendations! If you know any of those poetic ones, let me know!! 😀
