Rice Pot Next Door (Epilogue): Chapters 86 – 87

horseThe timeline of the epilogue meshes once  more with the timeline of the main story n I rather like how both storylines flow well, collectively and individually.  With help from Wu Wen n Xiao You Cai, Qiao Feng managed to hijack Lan Shan from Song Zi Cheng, while Wu Wen seems to notice XYC more  and more. The next post should be around Sunday or Monday n in the meantime, happly reading. 😘

Rice Pot Next Door (Epilogue): Chapter 85

LTM12avi_000459259The author mentioned that it is a combination of bullying instinct plus boredom that makes Wu Wen tease Xiao You Cai, but I find it cute to see him alternating between chauvinism and jealousy…. with jealousy getting more and more rampant as the days go by! Moral of the story folks, is to please exercise caution of what you do when you are bored.

Rice Pot Next Door (Epilogue): Chapters 83 – 84

Horsfield's tortoise shutterstock_25645696Good morning!  It is public holiday (horray!) in Singapore so here is a short post while I work on the weekend’s post, cos  Xiao You Cai is just too cute with her pet tortoise! But before going into her story, I will like to put up Chapter 84, which is a short epilogue on Lan Shan and Qiao Feng in . There isn’t much word play or stuff (funny or otherwise), so I will just summarize it before delving into Chapter 83.

Rice Pot Next Door (Epilogue): Chapters 81-82


funny injungSo far, I am loving the interactions between Wu Wen and Xiao You Cai . Wu Wen is such a bully, but I am starting to see why Xiao You Cai is a good foil for him. He has a soft spot for meek woman – but this particular meek woman is not meek at all when it comes realizing her wants! so let’s hope he knows what he is getting into when he does the equivalent of pulling her pigtails.

As for Xiao You Cai, we get see a more adult version of her today. I am not sure if I am disappointed or elated that she is perfectly normal at the workplace, but no matter which side of her we see, I hope she will never stop having her funny ideas for it always give me such a good laugh, or at least and eyebrow raiser, everytime.  Have a happy weekend!

Rice Pot Next Door (Epilogue): Chapter 80

XYC as YooEHIn the main story, Wu Wen came across as very manly and street smart.  Other than the loud shirt in his first appearance, he has always strike me as a good-looking and  intuitive man, despite the ribbing from his mom and dad.

The author wrote a long epilogue about him and Xiao You Chai about 10 chapters long.  I may summarize some chapters as I go along but the first chapter here is pretty much as it is.  A little bit all over the place, but not unentertaining. This match reminds me a little of the wacky Yoon Eun Hye & her Big boss pairing in “Lie To Me” so I have inserted their drama poster here for a bit of colour.  Happy reading!

Rice Pot Next Door (Epilogue): Chapter 79

press conferenceWhat are my takeaways on this epilogue? One:  I finally know why the food at Qiao Feng’s house – rice, tea, fruits, etc – always seem to taste better. I doubt it is Lan Shan’s imagination and she probably has Grandfather to thank for all the high-quality food.

Two:  Song Zi Cheng still cares about Lan Shan.  *squeeeeal!*  I don’t know why this got me excited, but it does and I think Lan Shan is a very fortunate person who has many people concerned about her.  Besides Song Zi Cheng, there is also Xiao You Cai, Wu Wen, Papa Wu and Mama Qiao too.

What are your takeaways?
