Peking Duck and Firecrackers

As I arrive in Beijing for a week of interviews for my new book, the city welcomes me with its rough romantic edge. It is snowing outside and I am chilling in a very charming renovated courtyard hotel lit up with red lanterns and hidden way in one of the old hutong.  There is a major feast outside with home-lit firecrackers and loud blasts to honor the last day of the Chinese new year. I have a large bed with a tea-table tray on my left side and an even larger antique bed with red silk curtains and red lining on the right. I was told that it is the wedding suite and the room with the best feng shui. I  long for Peking duck but the hotel tells me that all the restaurants will be packed tonight–as it the end of the Chinese New Year and also Chinese Valentine’s day. They advised me to have Peking duck tomorrow.  But I just cracked open a beer and very soon I am heading outside. It is snowing more heavily now and I am going to find that duck.

Ancient Chinese Poems that Depict Breasts

 

赵鸾鸾的《酥乳》:

粉香汗湿瑶琴轸,春逗酥融绵雨膏。浴罢檀郎扪弄处,灵华凉沁紫葡萄。

《酥乳》王偁
一双明月贴胸前,紫禁葡萄碧玉圆。夫婿调酥绮窗下,金茎几点露珠悬。’”(《情史·卷十三》)

朱彝尊《沁园春》

隐约兰胸,菽发初匀,脂凝暗香。似罗罗翠叶,新垂桐子,盈盈紫药,乍擘莲房。窦小含泉,花翻露蒂,两两巫峰最断肠,添惆怅,有纤褂一抹,即是红墙。
偷将碧玉形相。怪瓜字初分蓄意藏,把朱阑倚处,横分半截,琼箫吹彻,界住中央。取量刀圭,调成药裹,宁断娇儿不断郎。风流句,让屯田柳七,曾赋酥娘。

欧阳修《系裙腰》

水轩檐幕透薰风,银塘外、柳烟浓。方床遍展鱼鳞簟,碧纱笼。小墀面、对芙蓉。
玉人共处双鸳枕,和娇困、睡朦胧。起来意懒含羞态,汗香融。素裙腰,映酥胸。

温庭筠《女冠子》
含娇含笑,宿翠残红窈窕。鬓如蝉。寒玉簪秋水,轻纱卷碧烟。雪胸鸾镜里,琪树凤楼前。寄语青娥伴,早求仙!
