    Lol. You guys need to think with an ancient period mindset, aight? Folks back then were mainly restricted to cotton, silk or linen fabrics for material so they had to do a heck lot of layering to keep warm. Plus, people back then were pretty conservative, so we can’t compare historical attire with modern fashion. Even Western gowns during the 18th Century (think Marie Antoinette) had 3-6 layers of petticoats alone, and let’s not forget the chemise, stockings and garters, corset, modesty slip, cap, hip supports (butt pads, babeh), the actual gown and then the jackets over the gown, wigs, etc. That’s easily more than 9 layers there...lol. 🤔🤔🤔 Likewise, ancient China dynasty fashion were equally complex, even more so if you belong to nobility and the upper-class. Its complexity also depends on which dynasty period this novel is set in, as some like the Qing Dynasty would wear a set of undergarments that consisted of the ‘dudou’ slip bodice (just imagine a backless halter neck top because bras weren’t invented yet) and long pants, and then layer on tunics, skirts, an overcoat robe, and maybe even a fur-lined silk cape in the winter. In fact, there’s even a shoulder cape called ‘yunjian’ (雲肩) that serves to protect the neck and collar from food stains, but somehow became more like a decorative fashion statement. Don’t forget the belt, sash, lapel, silk scarf, socks, shoes, hair accessories or even elaborate hats or hairpieces that could weigh a ton. Anyway, now that I’ve practically written an essay on this, perhaps now you guys can see why 9-12 layers of clothing were required back then. 😂😂😂

    Nanny Xu said, "The rules of learning etiquette are a little stricter and harsher. Wearing nine layers of clothings is just right for your age. When you're older, you'll have to wear twelve layers of clothes. It won't be too exhausting."

    Although An Ran did not expose Duan Qun and Tao Ya on the spot, she had installed a mini spy camera on the food cart, and the camera was facing the bed when she left the food cart in the room.

    This is the second time Author-san has mentioned shielding him from the sun. Methinks he’s either a vampire or he’s an emperor reincarnate. 😬😬😬

    Ah.I’d like to point out that this isn’t some translation mistake but I’m guessing it makes more sense in the original text in Chinese. See, in Chinese culture the way you address elders really matters, and I’m not even talking about blood relatives because that’s another whole level of complications that I don’t even wanna try explaining. I’m talking about strangers or parents of your friends, etc. Basically, anyone whom you don’t have any family ties with. If it’s someone older whom you’re not particularly close to, or if it’s someone that you’re meeting for the first time, you address them as ‘Shu Shu’ (叔叔) which means ‘Uncle’. However, if it’s someone you’re pretty familiar with (e.g. the father of your bf/gf), then you would refer to him as ‘Bo Bo’ (伯伯)...which also means ‘Uncle’ but it’s on a more intimate level. Btw, if it’s someone unfamiliar to you who is older than your dad (but not at a grandpa level), then you can ALSO call him ‘Bo Bo’ (伯伯) instead as a show of respect for his seniority. Yeah, it can get confusing AF. 😂😂😂 The reason I’m explaining it in such detail is because it’s subtle way to find out how close the relationship is between certain people. Sometimes, parents can use this to express their subtle dissatisfaction of their children’s partner. For example, if you meet your gf’s father for the first time and you try to bridge a closeness with him by addressing him as ‘Bo Bo’. He, however, responds by asking you to call him ‘Shu Shu’ instead - this is him drawing a line and sending a silent message that you and him aren’t close enough yet for you to call him ‘Bo Bo’. Similarly, when you’re married, you’re supposed to refer to your in-laws as ‘Mother’ and ‘Father’. Your in-laws should also refer to themselves as your ‘Mother’ or ‘Father’ and no longer as your ‘Bo Mu’ (伯母) a.k.a Aunty or ‘Bo Bo’ (伯伯). In other words, Nian Lie’s mother referring to her husband as Ning Qing’s ‘Uncle’ instead of ‘Father’ is a subtle indication that she doesn’t really consider Ning Qing as her daughter-in-law. That’s why in the next line, it’s written that hearing that title made her heart ache...because she knows that although Mother Nian has acted warmly towards her, the truth is Mother Nian hasn’t or doesn’t truly acknowledge nor accept her into the family.

    "Don't worry. Your uncle is already fine. He went to the company this morning."

    LMAO. I actually checked the Chinese raws to confirm my guess and I was right because the very mention of ‘Western dim sum’ had me scratching my head in confusion. 🤔🤔🤔 The author wrote ’西式点心’, which does literally translate to mean ‘Western dim sum’. However, the actual meaning refers to Western pastries and desserts, such as cookies, cakes, tarts, pies, etc. In other words, although the word ‘dim sum’ in Chinese (点心) refers to those scrumptious dumplings, siu mai, pau and the likes, the meaning can change slightly when you tack on other words with it. Honestly, I kinda wish Webnovel translators could buck up. Ain’t the first time us readers have ended up paying for translations that aren’t up to par or even worse, change the story details with such mistranslations. 😑😑😑

    Although traditional Chinese dim sum was delicious, the western dim sum was also very popular in taste. Western-style dim sum was able to dominate half of China's dessert stores in the future, and it was not only because the Chinese people were fascinated with foreign foods in the earlier years.

    Umm...am I the only one confused? Didn’t enter the city but went straight into the city? 🤔🤔🤔

    As it was not a busy day, they did not see many people on the way to the city. However, they passed by the city and did not enter. Instead, they went straight into the city. After passing the city entrance, the road to the city was along the riverbank.

    Oars? As in the ones to paddle boats? 😂😂😂

    Yan Lingsu was thinking of making a pair of shoes for Yan Qixun to allow her to go out. The current pair of broken shoes that had ripped open was their mother's old shoes when she was young. There were no proper shoes for Yan Qixun to go out of the house at all. It was a pity that Yan Lingsu did not have any shoe soles available. Instead, she made oars and cloths as the shoe's soles.

    Hobble gracefully? 😂😂😂 Well, that’s a first for me. How does one stagger or limp along in an elegant manner, pray tell? 😒😒😒

    But Old Madam Zhu wasn't done yet. She scoffed and added, "Moreover, despite being raised in a nunnery, she doesn't seem any worse than Xiangxiang, a child that you raised yourself. Ming Jing is your own flesh in blood, you have to treat her carefully. Mind your attitude in the future." With that, she picked up her walking stick and hobbled gracefully out of the living room.

    Mr. Second and Mr. Third? 😂😂😂 Aight, as a Chinese speaker, I can definitely say the original text was most likely ’二先生’ and ‘三先生’ as that would literally translate to ‘Mr. Second/Third’. In this context, though, the correct translation should be ‘Second Master’ and ‘Third Master’. Good grief...all these simple mistranslations that we’re paying to read. 😒🙄😑

    In the living room, Mr. Second and Mr. Third were sitting on the sofa in the living room with serious expressions on their faces.
