Nothing major planned for my big 0 day. Took the work day off so I can just be lazy all day! I’m hoping my family maybe bought me some more Chinese books to read too. :lol:

Thanks. :mrgreen:

I indeed got some books today! In fact, my family pretty much all got me China-related things. :lol:

- I got a copy of The Art of War, which I surprisingly hadn't owned a physical copy of yet.

- I got a copy of Xun Xu and the Politics of Precision in Third-Century AD China, which I similarly didn't have a physical copy of yet. Very happy about this one -- I've just stuck with digital because it's so expensive but my Ma managed to find it for pretty cheap!

- And I got Jin Gong Yao Hou: Jia Nanfeng, which is a Chinese novel about Jia Nanfeng. It's in Chinese so I can't read it. :lol: But I wanted it for completion sake! It's a good reason to stop procrastinating with learning Chinese too. (Judging by the summary, the book is kinda mean towards her... but I still wanna read it.)

- I also got a really amazing handmade ceramic & porcelain statue of an imperial concubine; it stands about a foot tall. (Click here for pic I took.) My Ma ordered it from a China. It has Chinese writing inside the foot and on the back of the headdress -- I'll upload high res photos of it sometime to get a translation.
