Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I recently learned how to bake cookies in a toaster oven. Now I’m unstoppable! I’ve made a big bowl of the cookie dough and bake a small batch of cookies every day.

To be honest, they aren’t very good. I also suspect that store-bought cookies are cheaper.

However, they have been a big success at our house. I was going to take a picture but when I went downstairs, all I found was an empty plate because my family had eaten all of them.

Did you know that you don’t actually need chocolate chips to make cookies? You can just take a chocolate bar, cut it up, then use those pieces for your cookies. It tastes great but it’s more expensive.

One of my weirder ideas was to put cornflakes in the cookies. That made it crunchy… maybe too crunchy!

I have to stop baking cookies next week because it’s too many calories but for now I am enjoying myself.

Thanks for reading.

Mo Dao Zu Shi Live Action (Eng Sub)

In case some of the readers here don’t know, Mo Dao Zu Shi aka Founder of Diabolism has an ongoing live-action show!

The English subtitled show is titled “Untamed” and the publisher has made it free to watch on Youtube.

*cough* It’s apparently “bromance” since an actual romance wouldn’t be allowed to air due to China’s strict censorship.

I actually haven’t watched it yet since I’ve been super busy but it’s nice to know that it’s available. Have you watched it?

Thanks for reading.

Chapter 87 – Scum Villain

Reika: Hi, everyone. Chapter 86 is the next chapter as per the author’s raw chapter numbering. However, as I mentioned last week, we currently lack translators to handle some of the chapters. Thus, this week’s chapter is chapter 87 since 86 hasn’t been translated yet.

If you’re interested in helping as a translator, please send me a message at the Novelupdates forum. My forum nick is Readerz.

I don’t think it’s bad to read this chapter right now since 87 is actually a continuation of the story arc that started in chapter 85.

Looking for more translators for Scum Villain

Hiya, uh it seems the team is a bit busy this month and maybe next month, too. We already finished quite a few extra chapters but there are still a few (less than 10) that need to be translated.

If you’re interested in helping us out for two months or thereabouts, then please message me in the NU forums. My forum nick is Readerz.

I really hope someone will step forward with some much-needed translation help!


Thanks for reading.

Ugly Woman’s Harem Code (Reverse Harem)

Yes, it’s a manhua (Chinese web comic) with a reverse harem of yummy men. *smirks*

Ugly Woman’s Harem Code Summary:

Ji Guanxue was born in the ugly year, ugly month, ugly day, and ugly time. Thus, she is known as the “ugly woman” even though she is actually quite beautiful. A highly skilled doctor, she made enemies left and right until, finally, she was assassinated. After death, she was reborn eight years before her assassination.

I really like the main character and her (reverse) harem. The art is very colorful and nice to look at, too. However, the story isn’t moving fast enough for me.

Thanks for reading.

Elf Boyfriend & Boyish Girlfriend

I’ve been reading this funny short webcomic “Elf Boyfriend & Boyish Girlfriend.” The original is on Twitter:

There is an English translation at Mangadex –

It’s really funny and fluffy.

The art is clean-looking and neat. I particularly like the character designs. The elf boyfriend is pretty standard but the female (human) main character’s design and style are unusual for manga. She seems pretty realistic, not to mention relatable!

Their interactions are cute but not taken to extremes that it feels cringey. It’s actually pretty normal most of the time.

If you have read it, what do you think of it?

Thanks for reading.

First extra chapter!

The main story of Scum Villain is finished but MXTX wrote a ton of very nice extras that I think everyone will enjoy.

I can’t say anything more about the extras for fear of spoilers. Let’s discuss it more when this particular story arc in the extras is finished. 🙂

In the meantime, please enjoy today’s chapter.

Thanks for reading.

My reaction to the previous chapter when I first read it:

It was totally the time for the Shocked Pikachu meme! Wow, I was speechless, lol. I was not expecting that at all.

Gu Daoist Master

I normally don’t like mangas with Villain Protagonists since they often turn out to be cringey or too chuuni (lol) but I make an exception for Chinese webcomics or manhua since most of the so-called protagonists in Chinese novels are a bunch of gangsters anyway.

Gu Daoist Master – – takes the cake for the most cunning and villainous protagonist I have read in quite a while. That guy is ruthless and cunning… and I like it.

I have heard that the later arcs are not good but the current story (childhood+teen years) are the best of Gu Daoist Master. If that’s true then I’ll just enjoy the story for now and maybe drop it later if it starts to suck.

The art is okay. I really like it so far but it’s not exceptional. The MC’s long hair, gloomy face, and evil expressions are very nicely done.

Summary: Cornered and surrounded on all sides by his enemies, Fang Yuan went back in time to when he was a child. Now he seeks to overcome his foes with skill and wit! Ruthless and amoral, he has no need to hold back as he pursues his ultimate goals.
