Yuan Xi had a dream about a s*xual encounter, only to discover after a night of pleasure that it had all been real. After being shocked silly for a long time, he ran away.

Who would have thought that a big grown man like him would become pregnant and have a son?

The question was, who is the child’s father? It had been too dark for Lao Tzu to see clearly!

Also, what was this daily life system that has been attached to him?

Farming Skill
Ranching Skill
Harvesting Skill
Cooking Skill
Building Skill
Skinning Skill
Sewing Skill
Smithing Skill

… There was a never-ending row of categories.

老子 Lao Tzu: A way of referring to oneself, usually in angry or joking situations.

Okayish. Liked their stable relationship, disliked the clear repartition of roles as appropriate for ‘husband and wife’. The system is cool, the skills awesome but the MC is practically transformed chapter by chapter into a stereotypical chinese female MC. Only he’s a man. I mean sewing skill? Planting and cooking. All the other ones were overlooked mostly. And the villains, lol, squint and they’re there- oops no, they’re defeated already. Overall interesting but felt like it was a waste of potential, considering the characters were likable, the story interesting and... more>> it was in space (at first the different environments were quite nicely depicted) <<less

I was one of the people who begged for this to be translated. And it has. And I’m so freaking proud of myself. I managed to get it done!

Hoshiandme is so amazing! Also, even though only chapter 1 is out. I have very high expectations. This novel’s more of the slice of life style of novel. A bit of transmigration in it too. And maybe isekai. But well, there’s a freaking system, and there’s a baby. So what else can I not love about it?

cute baby? Check.

... more>> cute MC? Check.

sexy hot ML? Check.

its a freaking BL CHECK HCEKC CHECK.

my welcome and love all BL.

So FIVE STARS! I have hopes for this novel! <<less

There's only one chapter out, so I decided to read ahead. Finished the novel and can say it's not really my cup of tea.

Like mentioned before, it's more of a slice-of-life novel and tends to feel slower because there is no strong stimulation for survival, no overarching goal to achieve. Just an MC with a 'game' system and a range of slice-of-life skills to grind away. Right from the beginning, the MC says he wants to live a peaceful, mundane life with a family and that's basically what this novel... more>> is. And there's nothing wrong with this approach, except the characters aren't particularly well-developed and the complications are not particularly interesting.

There isn't really any sense of a mainstay antagonist/threat present until the very end; which is fine in this sort of story, except that the end feels rather anti-climatic and rushed. There are quite a few loose ends that I would have liked to see the author address.

The thing thing that bugged me the most was that the MC seemed smart and capable in the beginning, but kind of gets dumber and dumber as the story goes on and needs the ML to guide him through every little problem that he comes across. Although annoying when it happens, I feel this is author's way of making the MC seem more cute and adorable (and it sometimes does work for me). The author likes to make use of misunderstandings to create comedic scenes, and sometimes it works; other times it's just frustrating.

If you are looking for a gripping story, intense action sequences, interesting plot-lines, you should probably look elsewhere. On the bright side, it's BL, there's M-Preg, you actually get to see the MC's child (and it's pretty adorable), the MC isn't a scumbag (there's so many Chinese novels with arrogant and ruthless MCs, that anything that swerves away from these traits is an immediate plus for me), the s*x scenes are pretty interesting to read, the story can be pretty funny at times, adorable the next and steaming hot afterwards. <<less

Im the type that is easy to satisfy, and yes this one definitelt satisfied me AT FIRST.

before I tried mtl'ing thus I read reviews and of course the one that caught my eye was @learningabc. She/he gave low rating but the others have high rating. So I thought maybe because its just doesnt go well with her/him. And so I started reading the novel, it was so cute and fluffy. A lil bit of drama in the beginning which made me feel excitement. Also the baby is cute.

KEEP IN MIND... more>> THIS ONE. The baby's exposure in the beginning was a lot. But inlater chapters yoy wouldnt even see him being mention in like 10 chapters or so. Like, whats the purpose of your title. I read this to see the baby since they said he's exposed a lot. But it really left me disappointed! Also they didnt explain how he reallt got pregnant in the beginning, god dammit im so frustrated.

halfway of the story and up, the author focused on the system whcih I thought was cool but it became dull as it goes by, I became un interested reading. As @learningabc said, the antagonists presence wasnt that much big, ugh I wish there was more drama. The only part that made me stay was there adult scenes


1. Dont read this if you want baby exposure

2. Dont read if you want drama (I wish there was a lil bit drama in later chapters but there wasnt ugh)

3. Dont read if you want fluffy romance (it became more focus on the system which is really boring)

4. Dont read if you want sweet interactions (although there is, but you'll get what im saying if you read this)


1. Read this if you like non-rom story and focuses on system

2. The couple has stable relationship

3. OP MC and ml

and so, as I was saying. This one left me disappointed. But dont let this review stop you from reading this one, we all have different taste. Im just warning those who have the same taste as mine.

if the chapters were translated in the future I would still definitely read it because earlt chapters are cute. <<less

Kyaa. Such a cute and funny romance. I love their little bun!

... more>>

Main character is a normal citizen that got transported into the future with a Daily Life System. Super helpful when paired up with our male lead's position as the youngest general of Beijing Star. Main character makes me 'kyaa' and 'awh~' for his cuteness & the helpless situations of his love life. For example, he tries to run away most of the time from the male lead's advances but gets caught quickly, and then, they make love.


A few dramatic scenes, but nothing too antsy, however; the plot-line is still interesting. The focus is placed on upgrading his skills while the plot grows along with his progress.

Main character is too funny and cares deeply about his family, good trait.

A few small smut scenes. Nothing too bad, but very enjoyable. ? <<less

I mtl'd to a certain point. It seemed promising, but the story sped through the parts I like and the system seems very fragmented and unpredictable. Like some sort of space minecraft. The love story is mediocre. They eventually recognize each other during a business deal so they become a couple a few chapters later. All the side characters go on these giant diatribes about how much they like the MC and want to be good to him. Anyone who comes into any conflict with the MC the most ends... more>> up getting their face slapped to pieces. He does his last cool sci fi thing in chapter five, and after that it's literally like running a high production farm in 2019 because the farm isn't a part of his system, it was pre-existing with employees who are amazed with everything the MC does, one at a time, both verbally and inside their head. <<less

It was really an unique and outstanding story. The plot something new even though it was said to be about system. I don't know why it isn't popular yet maybe because this hasn't been fully translated. O (╯□╰) o

MC was reliable, powerful & lovable in his own way. Sometimes a little bit silly but I still liked him. Even without a system I don't think he would have any problem to make a living in different timeline; cause he was rational & self-reliant. He was one of my favorite MC.... more>> ML was so manly. Even though he was described as cold, handsome, domineering & unfeeling but he was still so sweet, gentle & warm to MC. ML patiently waited for MC to open up his heart to him. They both made wonderful couple. The romance between them was hot & passionate. |*^*| The little guy had much exposure in the 1st half of novel but later it became less. Well, it's understandable cause the plot was not all the child. But the author gave so many little guys in story which would melt anyone's heart. MC & ML also had twins later.┭┮﹏┭┮

At last after twist & turn the truth about system was revealed. I clearly couldn't guess it. It kept my attention through the whole time. Quite enjoyed the wonders of system.|^_^|

If you like fluffy, cute & warm story with children & also an interesting plot then can give it try!இ﹏இ <<less

I thought I would love this fic because it's basically set in the future/interstellar period and involves a system (MC's golden finger). The beginning was good actually. The start was pretty interesting and the baby! But then it got a bit boring after ML finally found MC. I thought things would pick up but it felt like the author would introduce a lot of possible antagonists/plot points and then just forget about them. The author was definitely trying to pack in as many random parts as possible - which I... more>> sort of expected with all the lines of possible skills the System had but still! Part of my decreased interest is because I was reading the MTL version after chapter 21. But overall, it was meh. Also, the title feels misleading, because the baby only occasionally pops up after MC and ML reunite. I thought based on the title that the baby was a big part of the story. <<less

I enjoyed the story overall.

The baby was born towards the beginning-ish of the story so you get a cute baby, but MC constantly has to work so the baby shows up sporadically.

MC has some abilities that are over ML, but even though he was raised as an orphan so had to learn to fight he's typically shown as useless other than that one time at the beginning. ML is so overpowering that MC has to constantly rely on him and constantly has to consult him which gets kind of annoying... more>> since MC as a character seems to not be able to stand on his own.

Other than that, this novel has a very great premise and is really entertaining. <<less

Finally finished reading after 3 days

The novel has really unexpected start which is a papapa scene hahahha anyways, it's a good start and made me really hooked into the story

It is not like the other cub raising instellar story, where the MC raise cute little childrens and aliens instead this story is not children friendly. Smut tag is indeed needed. They really made a good use of the system though. Specially Ye Heng hahahahha I can't count how many smut scenes are there after chapter 60 (its hot though >... more>> /// <)

The relationship of both MC and ML is reasonable. Not too quick and not too slow. I really like how their relationship developed and how the MC and ML understand eachother first before they finally got together

It is okay to MTL it. It didn't fried my brain thoroughly just enough for me to not drop it

I just really wish someone will continue to translate this one. And if that happens, I will surely re read it again

It's a good story specially for those who really love magical spaces and OP characters just like me

Chapter 53 is My limit

The novel has an interesting and unique premise with an unexpected twist at the beginning, ... more>>[where the protagonist suddenly finds themselves with a large “sum of money” that could make him rich in instant. However, things take a turn for the worse when the protagonist's boat is hijacked by unknown assailants.]

such an abrupt scene, and ending in haste makes it confusing

One issue with the novel is the inconsistent behavior of the main character. In one chapter, [/he decide not to help the ship that was hijacked, which left me feeling frustrated.] However, in the next chapter, this decision is not mentioned or addressed at all, making it seem like it never happened.

Additionally, there are many instances where the main lead makes unilateral decisions without considering the consequences for main characters, which can be frustrating for me.

At first I thought there would be a lot of scenes with MC kid but this just revolved around the farm, these 2 characters' strange relationship back and forth and transactions of the planet. Even the work of ML seems unclear here as General

Despite the intriguing premise, the execution of the story is disappointing, and the inconsistent behavior of the main character and main lead only adds to the confusion.

The use of multiple translators also makes the story difficult to read, especially when machine translation is used

I don’t use MTL for read the remaining chapters but I suggest you don’t use MTL for this story.

Overall, the novel has potential, but the execution falls short, and the lack of clarity and consistency make it difficult to continue reading past Chapter 53. <<less

It would have been good if it's not for the over-abundance of s*x everywhere. MC, being given a system and tools, can't use his own brain to infer how to go about using what was provided to him and often times needed help from his partner.

The title is misleading, I thought it was about bringing a child up on his own, but then the UKE showed up, which, on my own opinion, is not really needed. He has the system and the tools, why else would he need the UKE... more>> for, for constant banging? <<less

This novel is a bit hard to read. There’s just too many things happening. It starts off with a random one-night stand, then a police chase, then suddenly there’s slice of life, farming and a mysterious system that’s giving him random exp points for daily activities. It’s a bit too much for my currently over distracted head, so I decided to put it down for the time being.

I won't rate it yet, as I'm still 100 chapters from the end, but right now I'm going to drop it. Also, I'm MTLing it and am confused on some parts so that could have something to do with my frustration.

I'm just bored with the story so far and the storyline is all over the place, not sure what this novel is trying to be.

Romance? Not really, ML is like a kid teasing the one they like.

... more>> System? Nope, shows up randomly.

Farming slice of life? Sometimes...

Bun raising? Was at the begining but slowly the bun is being forgotten about along with the adopted parents.

Space action with political intrigue? Again it happens randomly.

Then there is random smut thrown in which I'm usually ok with but seems out of place. Also kind of disappointed that it's like 6k years in the future but other than flying cars and space travel not much changed.

I will probably give this another go once the translation is further along. <<less

Ok The story was superb and all.

The plot hasn't opened much, but you can see some underlying problems.

Story is very enjoyable because of the little baby in this.

... more>> The Most likeable thing was the family formation and relationships formations. No betrayal yet but I am sure the people whom MC trust won't betray him.

I like the parents and little boy very much.

The System is there is got not much to do yet.

About Ml... Hmm... At first, I was confused who it was. I thought it might that Feng Yun guy then he turned out to be not the one, Then the real ML's brother but no then I found the real one in 19th chapter sigh too much stimulation to find the real one.

Don't know much about real ML, But like any typical novel the ML seems to be


A major general or whatever he was said. He is right now in a misunderstanding that Mc's son is his sisters not his own.
