No.
I’m not sitting here gazing at her butt.
I’m busy thinking of a witty reply.

She began to undress, suddenly became bored and fell asleep even before she removed all clothes.

Literal translation:
My clean tender skin

“Happy Ending”, of course, is just one pair of English words that are just one part of a complete (or almost) Mandarin sentence, saying something like: My pure young skin, My Happy Ending (Safe to say they mean a fairytale “Happy Ending”, not the one that actually pops into actual English-speakers’ minds. Fortunately, even with a fuller translation, it’s still hilarious.)

It’s often considered “cool” to toss in a couple of English words in places like advertising to seem “in” and “hot” and whatnot. This was probably one of those instances where the advertiser had a weak grasp of English and took the commonplace “happy ending” to mean something like joyful end of the day rest.

Micah,
it doesn’t mean much in Chinese either. It translates into something like, “My clean / pure tender flesh, my Happy Ending.” Very stupid. I still don’t know what it is about even read it in Chinese. Is it a beauty product? A pillow?

淨 can mean clean as in purified.
嫩can mean tender usually attributed to youthfulness.
肌膚 means skin.
Hope this helped!

Or is it a happy ending for the flowers? No huffing and puffing and crushing their poor little petals?
