Three days later, around the perimeter of a dense forest in the Void Illusion Mountain Range…
Nie Tian was crouching beside a third grade Ice Scale Lizard, carefully carving open its thick, ice-cold scales. Then, he took out a number of sizable wooden barrels and filled them with its blood.
This dense forest was the region Pei Qiqi had marked out for him on the map, which was a major habitat for spirit beasts.
Numerous second grade and third grade spirit beasts roamed the perimeter of the dense forest. Since their strength was rather limited, Nie Tian hadn’t encountered much difficulty killing them.
According to Pei Qiqi, high-grade spirit beasts resided at the heart of the dense forest.
Although she hadn’t seen them personally, rumor had it that there were fourth grade and even fifth grade spirit beasts in the depths of the forest. Considering that it was so dangerous, no Qi warriors dared to explore the deepest parts of the forest, so it was hard to say if there were sixth grade spirit beasts there.
The strength of a fifth grade spirit beast could match that of a Worldly realm Qi warrior, and the strength of a sixth grade spirit beast would be equivalent to that of a Profound realm Qi warrior.
Pei Qiqi had warned him to stay at the outer edge of the forest and told him that he mustn’t go on a suicide mission by marching deep into the forest.
Nie Tian took her advice and only hunted spirit beasts around the perimeter of the forest.
To this point, he had already slaughtered four third grade spirit beasts, dismembered them, and stored their flesh, bones and blood in his bracelet of holding.
Happy Laba Festival everyone! This is the last major festival before Chinese New Year. Yeah!
Here’s something you might want to know about the festival:
The Laba (simplified Chinese: 腊八; traditional Chinese: 臘八; literally: “Eighth of La”) is a traditional Chinese holiday celebrated on the eighth day of the La Month (or Layue 臘月), the twelfth month of the Chinese calendar. It is customary on this day to eat Laba Congee. The Laba Festival had not been on a fixed day until the Southern and Northern dynasties, when it was influenced by Buddhism and got a fixed time on the eighth day of twelfth month, which was also the enlightenment day of the Buddha. Therefore, many customs of the Laba Festival are related to Buddhism. It corresponds directly to the Japanese Rohatsu and the South Asian Bodhi Day.
Before the Qin dynasty the Laba festival was a celebration of the new harvest.
After Buddhism spread to China during the first century CE, the festival was used as commemoration of Gautama Buddha’s enlightenment at the age of 35. During the Qing dynasty, ceremonies for the Laba festival would have been held in the Yonghe Temple in Beijing.
Traditionally, the consumption of Laba congee was an important element of the festival. In Northeast China, Northwest China and Jiangnan, this custom has been preserved, but it has become rarer in South China. On the first day of spring the government would hold a ceremony called “Beating Spring Ox” with the purpose of encouraging farming. Officials would use a colorful club to beat an earthen ox after worshiping the God of Grain; this was the so-called “Scourging Spring”. Even today, people in some places name Spring Begins as Beating Spring. After the ritual of “Beating Spring”, people would compete in grabbing the scattered pieces of the earthen ox, which would dispel pests or ants, and bring them good harvest in farming and abundant production of silk and livestock.
Congee for the imperial court would have been made of cream, lamb, various mixed grains, dried red dates, longan, chestnuts, peanuts, water caltrop, walnuts, raisins, melon seeds, and haw jelly.
Other congees are made of mixed rice, beans, and various types of nuts and dates. Sometimes the congee is decorated with coloured sweets or dried fruits.
Another custom is the soaking of Laba garlic. Garlic is soaked in vinegar for twenty days starting from the Laba festival. The garlic and vinegar is then used alongside Chinese dumplings (or jiaozi) around Chinese New Year.
