Xiang Po

Post by Reyzadren »

:eng: English
When my father's father's father, Xiang Po, came from Manchuria to Beijing, he had to work hard to disguise his ancestry.
The Ming rulers of China had grown weak, and so when the Manchu conquered the Ming in 1644, I was finally able to reveal my true heritage.

New words for this challenge:

pèsmendra [ˌpɛsˈmendɾɐ] - to disguise, hide, obfuscate
Etymology: pès "to, towards" + mendra "to be in the shadows"

manpuʻasé [ˌmanpuʔɐˈseː] - ancestor, ancestry
Etymology: from manpuʻat "ancestor", itself coined from man "spirit" + puʻat "old", + conceptualiser -sé
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.
