The characters are 「斿于𡎐」, or using ideographic description sequences: 「斿于⿰坴丮」. These are stand-ins for what we would now write as 「游于藝」; 「斿」 is the right hand side of 「游」, and 「𡎐」 is a seal script form of 「埶」, forming the middle part of 「藝」. The phrase referred to is a line from The Analects: Transmission of Learning: 《論語・述而》 子曰:「志於道,據於德,依於仁,游於藝。」 The ...

You have done a lot of research, and picking a name is entirely your personal choice, there are no right or wrong answer to it, just good or bad choices. Bad choice means something that sounds offensive or taboo, e.g. 徐定富 means '徐 + certain to get rich' but it sounds the same as 除定褲 (drop the trousers first) in Cantonese. Your four choices have no problem ...

A few possibilities come to mind: First, given that there is often no indication of plurality in Chinese, 箱子 may actually be indicating "boxes", rather than "box". That is, each pallet does contain many boxes and so the fork lift is loading many boxes into the truck. Second, depending on where you saw this picture and caption, it is ...

My translation would go like: Cinderella went from rags to riches, but when you.. 灰姑娘经历了从贫贱到富贵,但当你... It is proper to say '从穷到富', but as it is quite succinct, it is more likely to be used in blog titles and summaries rather than a sentense or an article. "贫贱" also reflects people's social status, compared to "穷". "went" - &...

fancy adj. not simple or ordinary 复杂的;花巧的;精致的(From "Oxford Elementary Learner's English-Chinese Dictionary, 4th Edition") So the translation should be: 她打扮得很精致。 or 她穿着很华丽。
