The Danger of Constructions for Homes & Businesses

  The most dangerous Sha... aka Negative Energy in the Feng Shui world.  And that is Construction.  That includes landscaping, infrastructure constructions, and building constructions.  Basically, anything that disturbs the ground.  Leaving it alone will bring all sorts of negative things in life, from wealth impact to affecting relationships to causing illnesses and injuries. Here in Utah for example, we are famous for Road Constructions everywhere. How do we identify which one will affect us? And which one will not? First, we review the route that we take in our everyday life. Are there any new constructions that popped up recently?  Is there one within a mile radius of your home, or your work?  Do you drive past a construction site every day when you go outside? If the answer is yes to any of those questions, then you have a problem...  Before we try to place sets to nullify the problem, we always check to see if we can just avoid it in the first place.  Perhaps you can avoid the co

How to Cook Japchae for a Party

This is a special episode that slightly deviates to showcase.  Japchae is a dish I taught at a cooking class about 2 years ago, and I would like to document it in a video format since in-person classes are currently unavailable.

Food is an important part of the Feng Shui Lifestyle.  I find it to be a peaceful way to unload stress in cooking.  This video was not sponsored by anyone.

Ingredients:

Bulgogi Beef - 4 oz
Shiitake Mushroom – 3-6 pcs
White Mushroom – 5 pcs
Garlic Cloves – 4 cloves
Sugar* - Optional
Soy Sauce
Spinach – 4 oz
Sweet Potato Noodles – 4 oz
Green Onion – 3 pieces
Yellow Onions – 1 pcs
Carrot – 1 pcs
Red Bell Pepper – 1 pcs 
Grounded Black Pepper
Salt
Sesame Oil
Cooking Oil
Eggs – 2
Toasted Sesame Seed

Cooking Steps:
  1. Slice bulgogi to 1/4-inch pieces, or purchase pre-sliced steak.
  2. Place in a bowl, add 1 minced garlic glove, 2 tsp of soy sauce, (optional) 1 tsp of sugar, 1 tsp of sesame oil, and a handful of grounded black pepper.  Mix well.
  3. Soak shiitake mushrooms in water (add more for vegetarian).
  4. In a separate bowl, mix 4 tbsp of soy sauce, 2 tbsp sesame oil, 2 minced garlic cloves, 1 tbsp of sugar*, and a handful of grounded black pepper.  Mix sauce.
  5. Bring water to boil and blanch spinach for about a minute.  Immediately place them in ice water, then squeeze to remove any excess water.  Cut the spinach in half and place it into a mixing bowl.  Add 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp of sesame oil, and 1 minced garlic clove.
  6. Slice up the rest of the vegetables to your preferences.
  7. Place noodles into boiling water and cook for 1 minute, stir to avoid sticking.  Cover the lit and turn off the heat to allow the cooking to continue for another 7 minutes.  Taste test one for softness and chewiness.  Drain the water and place the noodles into the same bowl as spinach.  Cut the noodles a few times with scissors for ease of consumption.
  8. Pour the remaining sauce created earlier into the bowl with spinach and noodles.  Mix well.
  9. Heat up skillet to medium high heat, add 1 tsp of cooking oil, pour 2 egg yolks, then cooldown on a cutting board.
  10. Heat up skillet to medium high heat, add 1 tsp of cooking oil. When the pan is hot, start cooking the beef first.  Stir fry the beef until it reaches your preference.  Chef preference is medium rare with a warm-pink center.  Pour into a collection bowl.
  11. Next cook the mushrooms at the same heat level.  Add a tsp of oil and a pinch of salt for seasoning.  Stir fry for about 2-3 minutes until the mushroom shrinks a bit.  Pour into the same collection bowl.
  12. Now begin cooking the onions and green onions at the same heat level.  Add a tsp of cooking oil and a pinch of salt for seasoning.  Stir fry for about 2-3 minutes and onions should look translucent.  Pour into the same collection bowl.
  13. Repeat the same step for the red pepper and carrots.  Add a tsp of cooking oil and a pinch of salt.  Then stir fry for about a minute.  Pour into the collection bowl.
  14. Roll up the already cooled egg, slice into thin slices.
  15. Add noodles and spinach onto a large skillet at medium heat, followed by the veggie and meat in the collection bowl, then the egg slices.  Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds.  Toss and mix everything in the skillet for about 20 seconds.  Serve on a large plate or bowl.  Add more sesame seeds on top.

2021 Tiger

Continue with the next zodiac sign, Tiger.  To determine whether you are a Tiger or not, see if you were born in any of these years: 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022 (are you from the future?) It is going to be a decent year for Tiger, your wealth is ranked fifth this year out of the 12 zodiac signs.  The fifth place is actually quite good this year, mainly because there are 4 other exceptionally well sign: Ox, Dragon, Sheep, and Dog that are better than you. The positive stars that follow Tiger this year consist of the Red Joyous star and the Sun star. Whether you are married or not, this will benefit you. Red Joyus is the best cherry blossom star - loosely translated from the direct translation of "peach blossom".  It is basically a symbolic meaning of a relationship.  The cherry blossoms are positive.  Everyone will think of you as a better-looking person this year. Any type of social encounter will become more successful this year whether be for love,

Ox 2021

Welcome to the year of Metal Ox that officially starts on February 3, 2021.  2020 is not quite over year in terms of the zodiac calendar year. If you were born in these years, then you are an Ox: 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021 Ox by nature is an Earth-Water element sign, which will be great for nullifying some of the clashes created by Fire and Metal in 2020. Every time you reach your own year, you will be Committing Tai Sui, which inevitably creates negative emotions.  This year will hit the worst for those turning age 36.  It is slightly better for those turning 48.  For those that are turning 12, I would just worry about their mental state from school pressure.  We had to deal with a lot of changes with 2020 for our school system.  Those that are turning 24, worry about minor injury, some early relationship issues, and perhaps a chance of marriage. As for those who are in the 60, watch for health, stay alert on teeth health, if the lip area gets darkened, go se

2021 Snake

 After Dragon, we have Snake, did you know these two signs are best friends?  These would be years for Snake if you were born in any of them: 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013 Snake is having a Triple-Joint with Tai Sui year.  Meaning it will boost your overall luck for this year, especially for relationships.  Charging forward is the theme for Snake this year. Despite wealth only ranked 10th, it is not bad compared to other years because there are many very good signs for wealth this year.  The relationship area received an extra boost from Tai Sui jointing.  Everything will flow smoother if relationships are great with others.  There will support from distanced benefactors as well. For positive stars, there are the Gold Palanquin and Three-Stage stars.  Both of these stars will help elevate social status.  They also help with decision making, saving money, and helping your talent shine this year. With the combined effect from the distanced benefactor and relationsh
