I don't even attempt reading that story...
It is a romance story... if I am not mistaken, rather melancholy.

It's one of China's '4 great classics' (the Chinese loved to have " # great ______" lists) It's about a couple of prestigious families, and the lives and intrigues of their members. I say it's convoluted because it literally has hundreds of characters, and as I don't have great exposure to Chinese names, I imagine it would be very confusing for me.

Ahh, I see. I could imagine that might be hard to get through.

If you want classic, Journey to the West and the 'Romance' of three kingdom is more interesting...
Especially Journey to the West. It is fun.

Yeah, Journey to the West is something of a corner stone of east Asian culture, isn't it? It would be good to read. I had just heard that Dream of the Red Chamber had good female characterization, which interests me.

Female characterization... I didn't read that Red Chamber, but I am pretty sure it is a romance story, very... to me, is draggy and just plain romance. No fun stimulants. I need fun-ess. ^_^ Very typical ancient woman thinking, not really my thing.

I am all for Mulan's type~ <33

Well, there's going to be some, uh, pot roast? Not sure how to call it in english. ^ ^''

There's that, and then some brie cheese cooked, which turned out delicious.
For dessert, I made some marble cake and a carrot cake. owo

In spanish, we call it Birria. XD Or, Biria? Either way.. It's meat. owo With some purple small potatoes.

Yep yep. <3 Two types of cake. We have a type of frosting that's lighter than normal frosting. Flavored coconut. It's also a bit of rum cake, since we put some essence of rum. XD

I'll do that soon, Dragoness, thank you so much for making it. :3

I've had my hands into a lot of cookies and icing so far today... brownies and a cake will come before the night is through. I'm pretty sure I'll be borderline diabetic for 2013 at this rate! (Not really... we're halving the sugar on many of these) - Pot roast is delicious! I'm probably just having left overs tonight, but with promise of a good roasted hickory ham tomorrow for supper.
