I: “General manager, I only said I will cook but did not agree to wash the dishes.”
He: “If you don’t wash the dishes, do you expect me to wash them?”
I: “Do you know a woman is most attracted to a man who can do housework? Especially when he is wearing an apron and washing the dishes. This is the ideal image of a good man in the thinking of a majority of the women. In order to create the prefect image of a good man, I feel it is necessary for you to wash the dishes.”
He: “A man who washes the dishes is really very attractive?”
He: “Well, I will believe you this once.”
He: “Xia Ye, come into the kitchen.”
I: “Do you need me to help you with something?”
He: “Just stand there and don’t move.”
I: “If there is nothing I can help you with, I’ll go out.”
I: “You asked me to come in, just to….. watch you wash the dishes?”
Me: “If you don’t watch, what is the point of me washing the dishes?”
He is distressed: “I fell in love with a person, but I do not know how to say to her.”
I suggested: “This is simple! Directly tell her I love you, should be all right?”
He is worried: “But …… I’m worried that she will not accept me.”
I comforted: “How can since you are such an outstanding man? There must be something wrong with her brain if she doesn’t accept you!”
He nodded: “Well, I love you!”
I: “…… Huh, there is something wrong with my brain ……”
[Ebook] [Eng Translation] [Ăn Xong Chùi Mép]
Since it is still lunar new year, this is the best book to read to enjoy the festive season. It is such funny fluff that you feel like you are floating on cloud 9. XX, I think this book is written for you:P I am having a good time laughing out loud at some of the antics. A simple feel good book to relax and feel happy.
Thanks to bongsd for the recommendation & phong for finding out the Chinese title for me. Is the Viet novel cover picture expressive or what, lol?
Bongsd’s novel introduction: She went to a job interview. Her mother told her to be nice to everyone. She saw a brilliant man and though that he is like her, here for a job interview. So she approached him to told him not to work for this company because the CEO is gay. And it turns out that this guy is CEO. Haha The first day at work, he told her to learn a speech in french and met someone in a Café. She was hesitant. So he asked her, what is her phone model. She said that is an old nokia. He said that an Apple gen 3 is not bad huh ? She thought that she will get a new phone. In the end, mission accomplished, he gave her 3 bag full of apples. lol She owned him money, he said that she must cook for him. After the meal, she said that she already cooked so she won’t wash the dishes and said that a man looks very attractive when he washes the dishes. He washed. But forced her to stay here and watch him.
Oooh thanks for the email. I think boss-employee novels are becoming my favourites! Haha. Shall read this!
I read finish another Su Su novel, 红旗不倒，彩旗飘飘, yesterday, also boss-employee. She writes like she’s Stephen Chow. Haha. I will do a write up on her when I’m free.
<3 thanks for the recommendation.
As I’ve told you b4, there are plenty of boss & employee novels until you can get indigestion, lol. Belly black funny novels are my fav but I need a change in my diet every now & then as after eating abalone for too long, I need to eat some meat such as angst or meaningful novels:) I am so slow with my reading of this novel. I’ve just reached the part where the staff got eaten by her boss, lol.
Haha, I can see that you’ve started to check out all of Su Su’s novels. I am looking fwd to read another of your review but take your time:) See, I told you not to worry that you’ll run out of books to read as the world is your oyster, lol.
Omg……all these yummy books are being hurled towards me left, right and center. And I’m not reading fast enough. But all the same, I still feel like crying tears of happiness for all the recent postings.
Haha XinnXinn is so funny.
Thanks so much, peanuts! Really one of the better boss employee novels I’ve read in a while! Nothing new, but written in such an enjoyable fashion. 🙂 I think I still prefer light fluff rather than angsty modern novels. Haha.
Glad you like this book Peanuts. 😛
Haha Poor Xia Ye, everyone is against her (her mother, her colleagues, his brother, his neighbor..). And He LOVES to tease her. I love this guy, he will do everything that she likes… like wash the dishes, walking around with the towel… A thousand years fox who like to mislead her in a very natural way. kekeke
And his mother… omg… hope I won’t have a mother-in-law like her. “A woman will never dare to wear her most pretty dress”. Poor father.
Omg, decembi can read left, right & centre:) At long last, I finished the novel, ‘sa hua’ (sprinkle confetti), lol. XX, if we can read Chinese, we can read a book a day like decembi. Now, I can only manage a book a week:( Btw, for decembi info, XX is just like Xia Ye, so funny & ….wink wink:P Haha, I am not belittling her but she said so herself:P
I read that the author wrote an extended ending for the physical book which I suspect never got published bcos I searched high & low for it but to no avail:( This is a rather funny and light hearted book with just the right length so it is also one of the better book for me as I hate draggy books.
However the story is never really fully developed in certain aspect eg the younger bro and Lu Jun’s doctor fren (did Lu Jun ask him to go to the blind date?) and is quite abrupt in handling the ex-bf part. All in all, I really enjoyed reading it not only for the leads but for the parents especially Xia Ye’s mum and the younger bro and other minor characters.
Lu Jun is belly black and loves to tease Xia Ye but he is never mean or nasty to her. In fact he is so caring & sweet to her which is very unrealistic as I am 99% sure nobody like that exist in real life, lol. As for Xia Ye, she is really silly and slow but luckily not that stupid to make me mad but nearly there. A cute and funny couple. The author is also very humorous and I like her non-draggy style. I wonder why she changed Lu Jun’s name part way into the novel?
Hahaha! No lah, I read quite fast for modern novels but not for ancient novels. Also, cos I usually go out only on weekends here in HK, and rather like to just go back after work, and read a good book! Life here is more quiet compared to at home 🙂
Oh I agree! The length is really good! I think 50 chapters is perfect for most novels. The doctor part was so random! I rather wondered if the author planned to write a book for the doctor actually haha! And the male lead’s younger brother is so poor thing and funny. I don’t really recall his change of name! Oops. May have read too fast.
Short, sweet and silly. Decembi is right, this type of books can’t be too lengthy although I still thought that the ending was a bit of a rush. But I’m not really complaining. I can eat truckloads of these books and not get indigestion, geez, will I ever grow out of such taste. Haha..for the record again, I’m QinQing (Kao), GuanXiaoYan (Flash), AnXiaoLi, XiaoTu and Shan Shan all rolled, mashed and baked into one!! Or maybe now hv to add Xia Ye into the main ingredient as well…..
I adore our cute janitor, Xiao Qian. He’s so funny and cute. Xia Ye really know how to mock him with her sarcasm. U guys remember the part when he followed them to the zoo. And Xia Ye told the zookeeper to remember Xiao Qian’s face becoz she doesn’t want the keeper to think that they stole one of the zoo’s monkey on their way out later!!!!
Thanks everyone for the this easygoing book. Hey, hey….now I am going to get my hands all bloodied. Close Your Eyes, here I come….
Ha, caught you for not reading my comment as to why the ending is this way !!! Luckily XX the name has yet to appear in any the silly, funny & black belly books or else I’ll think you jump out from there, lol.
Guilty as charged, speed read too fast, overlooked your comments there, lol.
I shall find myself an abacus to kneel, sorry Shi Fu.
But one day, I shall write a novel based on XX or commissioned Gu Man to write about me…..the fu hei lead would be tailored made for me by me. Slurppppeee….haha…ok….getting back to Close Your Eyes.
I haven’t read this yet (the Chinese ebook or Peanuts’s translations), but I literally laughed out loud when I read the opening just now.
I read off from right after Peanut’s translated introduction dialogue in the synopsis, in the phone scene where Lu Jun calls Xia Ye to
. OMG, if the entire book is filled with ensued hilarious scenes like these, I’m definitely going to have a new favorite.
LMAO!!! I just got past the scene with the “苹果三代 / 苹果三袋” homophone. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!! Oh god, dying of laughter. 😀 😀 😀 I mean, neither person’s interpretation is wrong, that’s what makes this scene so funny.
Lu Jun’s the best!! I’m already loving him! I also love how his words can always be cause for misinterpretation by the simple-minded Xia Ye! =X If I had been drinking any liquids, I’d probably would have spit it out all over my laptop screen right now.
I’m sorry guys, I’m really realllllly far behind so please bear with my fangirlish comments. =X Hehehehe
Ahahaha, I am glad you also like this book. This is one of my fav book bcos it is entertaining, funny, short and simple. If I remember correctly, it is hilarious fr beginning to end, not a dull moment. Which is why I am translating it even though it is a little known book. I’ll leave all the angst and tears to hui3r as I specialise in sweetness and laughter:P
Since you can read Chinese, it is funnier to read it in its original language as the pun will get lost in translation. Since, I enjoy translating it, it is no hard work to translate for those who don’t understand or know little Chinese. I know some can’t wait and used google translate to read ahead of me. But no worries as there are really no spoilers as it is expected they’ll get married and live happily ever after. It is the journey, the interactions b/w the leads which make the book such a joy to read.
Haha, Lu Jun is cunning and funny, a typical belly black boss but he can also be sweet & caring. He is one of the more balanced one as some of them tend to go overboard with their bullying. As for Xia Ye, she can be considered dumb or maybe simple-minded. Anyway I find her endearing instead of irritating compared to other silly female leads.
Teeheehee, indeed, so happy that you are enjoying this book! One of the better black belly employee novels! Ahhh, to find a new good black belly boss employee novel again
I have just finished reading this book and I think I know what you guys mean when you say “fu hei”. It means “black belly” right? For a while, I thought you guys are speaking cantonese where “fu hei” means “lofty”.
This book is funny! The characters are a bit one dimensional but some jokes are a riot. A thumbs-up from me as well.
All these mention of “fu hei” reminded me of this book which I read previously called 腹黑小爸 (Black Bellied Dad) by 罂粟. Do give it a try if you find it among the audio books. It is an office romance where a junior executive found himself to be the dad of an abandoned baby. It is not laugh-out loud like Wipe Clean After Eating but it is funny, heartwarming and engaging. The book length is similar Wipe Clean After Eating.
I came across this title thru bakaupdates and I LOVE IT.. I don’t know how to speak or read chinese.. Is there any way I could avail this book.. english translated..
I am translating it into English, will resume update next week.
Thanks a brunch.. Loving it to pieces
I mean a bunch… Its hard to reply thru mobile 🙂
You are welcome:) Hardsell a bit:P In the meantime, you can check out the cute short story I’ve just translated:)
I’ll check that out while waiting for your update 🙂 found my new crack
I’d like to thank you for your wonderful translations and updates..
Due to your fun translations, I dare say that I am turning into a c-novel fan.
I enjoy your translations for ‘come and eat Shan Shan’ and ‘checkmate your heart’. I hope I could read the next update for ‘wipe clean after eating’.
Do you have other ‘black belly’ (I’m not sure if I understand this term properly?!) English translations you may recommend?
Hopefully you could spare some time from you busy schedule to make updates…
Thanks in advance 🙂
Posted chapter 9 for you so quickly go to my blog, lol…..
Hi.. just finish reading it.. thanks for the update 🙂
Another Boss-secretary romance….. Maybe that’s why I hv poor associatation with secretary…hee hee…the dialogue in the books are very fu-hei (black belly) and even thought our female lead is a little silly and slow, there are a few occasion where she can render her boss and his brother speechless…all the typical setting are there, the boss getting revenge and fall in love, she being ditch by ex BF, get boss to pretend to be her new bf, “baking a bun in the oven” etc…I just feel a little pity that the side charecters were not fully developed. Her mum, the gynea date, her ex bf, his brother etc..overall it’s a short, ligh hearted story….I have a good laugh at some of their exchange of words…thanks
Hi Peanut, can i have the new link to the novel as the old one is become private now. Thanks in advance
