Mei Qing courtyard was where Zhao Mei had lived previously, and she had meticulously arranged and cared for every plant and tree within it. The interior had a good orientation. The fengshui[1]master had come to take a look and declared that blessings would completely surround it. When Zhao Mei died, the name of the residence was changed to Yan Hua Yuan (lit. beautiful flower park), and Jiang Su Su and her mother began to live there.

[1] Fengshui ( 风水 ) - It refers to geomancy, a Chinese belief that individuals can be harmonized with their surrounding environment using energy forces (known as qi, 气), thus bringing them better fortune. Historically, it was used to orient buildings in an auspicious manner, as in this chapter. (It's still practised today. My friend's brother had his bed set at an awkward angle for better fengshui.)

Wang momo, the old maid-servant who was bringing Jiang Ruan to her new residence, was loyal to Xia Yan. Her shrewd, triangular eyes[2]were constantly assessing Jiang Ruan and her maids, and she never stopped talking. "Eldest Miss doesn't know this, but today new people are coming to the residence. As Second Miss has already grown up, she has been given her own residence, so today rooms are in short supply, but Eldest Miss's residence was specially arranged for by Madam. Don't know whether Eldest Miss will like it or not."

[2] San Jiao Yan ( 三角眼 ) - lit. triangular eyes. People with triangular eyes are said to be shrewd, deep thinkers, difficult to get along with, and highly suspicious in nature. They also experience very strong emotions e.g. if they fall in love, they remain wholeheartedly dedicated to that person.
