I am Pickled Vegetable, You are Fish 我是酸菜,你是鱼 (非纯情敌对关系) by 关就 Guan Jiu (HE)


Tomboy Xie Ying Zi’s life guiding principles are – when working, be serious and hardworking but eat, drink and be merry in her spare time. She does not expect the new boss will want to manage not only the efficiency of her work, but also her eating, sleeping and other habits.  Isn’t his sphere of influence a bit too wide? Due to a misunderstanding and conflict in the company, Xie Ying Zi decided to get rid of her ass-kissing facade and clash head on with that poison tongue boss. Unexpectedly, she is still losing ground and is in the midst of trying hard to think up a new retaliation strategy. Then Xie Ying Zi finds out she is starting to feel something different. Could it be that after a long time her ’emotional’ heart is starting to beat again?

Zhu Meng is a young, rich and handsome man who has always been the target of many beauties. However he is not interested in those sexy and beautiful women but to fall in love with a tomboy who lacks femininity. At the beginning he just wants to tease Xie Ying Zi, watching her fuming reactions which is rather amusing. But after getting to know her better, he is gradually attracted to her true nature. With great difficulty, he manages to coax her to take the initiative to confess, resulting in the two of them starting to date. However Xie Ying Zi is scared to become the public enemy, so she insists to carry out an underground relationship. In order to keep her beloved happy, he had no choice but to put on a performance. Ultimately the paper cannot wrap up a fire, he would like to see how she will respond ……

    Hey Peanuts, you bet I’m still around. I’ve just been too busy being an octopus, my tentacles are on four books concurrently. Nothing but bliss falling in love with so many male leads at the same time!!!! (Haha…you should know me by now, never too many)!!!

    Thanks for this pickled vege and fish, I aways know you have me in mind when posting such books these days.

    Very refreshing indeed after all the uncles which I’ve been consuming.

    A lot of books start off nice n funny and somehow would go downhill midway. But Pickled Vege is the other way around, I thought it started rather slow and plain but halfway thru (round abt the time they adopted the pet dog), it picked up steam and got really funny.

    Who’s afraid of who?? This is a very dangerous tag line. You could lose your clothes becoz of this, and this is exactly what happened to YingZi!!!

    I almost collapsed when she puked into her handbag to avoid dirtying his car. For those using Pradas, LVs or the likes, this is not a good idea at all, do not emulate to save your life.

    And he unceremoniously moved into her crabby cheap flat, if it was me, I would hv thrown myself into his high end condo instead!!!

    If he can Pradarise me from head to toe, I don’t mind if I’m called Mrs Pig, Mrs Cow, Mrs Zoo…..

    But I would not recommend translating this book, altho it is funny, it really isn’t ShanShan’s class. Furthermore, I find the Chinese in Pickled a tad more difficult/higher level than the rest of the books I’ve read. Especially in the first half of Pickled where there’s a lot more narrations than dialogues.

    Talking about ShanShan, I think you guys (Lidge in particular) is doing such a fantastic job. I didn’t think it was so difficult until I posted the two books. Translating the book cover and few lines off the first page was tough enough, I can’t imagine how you guys can plough through and do the entire book. Hats off to you guys!!!

    Haha…I ate nothing but pickled Vege the last four days, my Uncles have been complaining of being neglected!!!
