From Huang Biyun
translation from me
Dusk in wintry London happens in a blink. Before the blurness of the sun is defined, the night starts to blosom. Within that moment of blinking, contains brightness and darkness, lovingness and unlovingness, hope and despair. Within that moment of thinking, there the eventide falls.
LAME!!!!!!!!! Who can help me!!!!!!???
Just spent ten minutes listening to Just like Heaven from Katie Melua, with Windows Media, who continuously play that trick of flickering images with me. The music is conforting to the ears, and the images to the eyes. Like a huge vacuum, those images were trying absorb me in, in the earth of nothingness, into a life of worthlessness.
Let me go, my life is elsewhere.
I'm running away now.
From the moderness,
From the fragments of postmorderness,
From your arms and my desires.
The clouds of darkness,
on waterloo bridge of her highness,
where the rain drops
washed away my fears,

I've always loved this story and thought about translate it into English, so that my friends can read such a beautiful but sad piece. I've always hesitated to do so, because it is so beautiful that I know I would deteriorate it. But there we are, no matter how lame it will be, I will give it a try.
As you can see with the title, this is a story about a prostitute and her less ordinary life.
(To be continued…)
I'm such a lazy translator!
Romance of Relight is written by the extrordinary Hongkongnese female writer Huang Biyun.
It's all about extreme situations in life, all about reducing the repetition of life.

Look what have I got from typing 'Penguina'
Yes, we know that "Penguina" is a silly name, but what would you name a little 3-month-old kitten who stands up on her hind legs and teeters around like a penguin?
We challenge any potential adopter to think of a more appropriate name.
cute! I want this cat…. it sounds perfect to me!
- Broken Flowers
I still remember I was pumped into by some fortune tellers several time when I was walking on the street of Beijing, randomly. They always told me next three months gonna be the biggest turning point of my life. I was told to seize whatever opportunities I saw in those months. When I turned back to the real life, I found no opportunities, and not even cute guys.
Most of the time, life changes in a more subtle way. You can't tell how it goes to all these different directions. If you get an unexpected mail like the one Don had, you may get the chance to see the unknown extention of life.
(I'm not making much sense these days. :) This is a really good film. Recommended!)
