ut the affairs of the Jinshi bureau?

Eunuch Zhu is someone, who has never eaten pork , but has seen pigs run3This idiom is often used to describe people who have not experienced things personally, but have heard about them, seen them, and have a little understanding of them.
If a young eunuch hadn’t mentioned this, he would have planned to send some gold, silver and jewels there in the name of His Royal Highness.

Seeing the doubt in Eunuch Zhu’s eyes, Xiao Shuanzi immediately gained confidence and said with a more serious tone: “I heard from the person in the Jinshi bureau that the jade should be sent in both thick and thin forms, slowly deepening the shape, so that the person using the jade can gradually get used to it.”

Eunuch Zhu froze, he had not thought of this at all and ordered the craftsmen to create eight identical jade pendants.

Xiao Shuanzi continued: “The jade rods should be used in conjunction with the ointment, either daily or every two or three days, depending on the condition of the person using it.”

Eunuch Zhu: “…”

He thought it would be enough to just send those jade gifts but he didn’t expect that there would be so many troubles.

Xiao Shuanzi looked at Eunuch Zhu eagerly and asked softly, “Eunuch Zhu, what should we do next…”

Eunuch Zhu thought for a while and then patted Xiao Shuanzi on the shoulder: “I will leave this matter to you, go and choose a good ointment, have those craftsmen make a new set of jade rods and send them to Young Master Wen.”

Xiao Shuanzi said: “Yes.”

At the end, Eunuch Zhu instructed him, “Remember to tell Young Master Wen how to use the jade rods.”


Eunuch Zhu is a man of action and even Xiao Shuanzi, who works with him, is also a man of action.
Within half a day, he packed the newly made jade rods with the carefully selected ointment and wrapped it in the finest silk.

Xiao Shuanzi hesitated for a long time, thinking that this is a very private thing, even if he is a eunuch, it would not be convenient for him to take this thing to the Bamboo Flute Residence in a grand manner.

Eunuch Zhu had already delivered the jade to Young Master Wen, so now that all that should be given away has been delivered, Xiao Shuanzi racked his brains, but he couldn’t think of a reason to go out to Bamboo Flute Residence.

So the matter was delayed for two days.


T/N – sorry for going awol for 2 weeks.
Even I didn’t expect myself to become so busy.
My senior told me my new department was going to be super chill and instead I found myself going early mornings and coming home super late.
Hopefully I’ll be able to continue updating properly from now on.

1In the Forbidden City in the Qing Dynasty, there was an institution called the Respect Room/ Jinshi bureau.
The Jingshifang belongs to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and its most important responsibility is to manage the affairs of the house.
The so-called “dedicated to the emperor’s/royal affairs” means that the emperor/royal and the empress and concubine’s sexual affairs are managed and recorded by the eunuchs of the Jingshifang.2maids who serve in bed3This idiom is often used to describe people who have not experienced things personally, but have heard about them, seen them, and have a little understanding of them
