Traditional Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner And Architecture In Taiwan

20

Meal cult is an important part of countrys culture. Food and drink are the main necessities for sustaining life, and Taiwan cuisine takes a special place among the great cuisines of the world. Taiwan has a broad variety of dishes because of great ethnic diversity. The diversity of cuisines contains 8 principle types: Hoklo (or Taiwanese), Hakka, vegetarian cuisine, northern style cuisine, Hunan, Jiangzhe, Hong Kong, and Sichuan. Seafood is used in all these cuisines as a culinary culture of Taiwan that is simple and light.

In Taiwan people prefer to drink tea or coffee with some sandwiches for breakfast. They like fruits and sweets which are laid in a big plate on the table. For example, when the time for lunch comes, people eat salty dishes such as steamed and chopped chicken, steamed streaky pork with dry mustard cabbage, or dried mustard greens. Besides, they like rice with boiled eggs or fried potatoes with meat or fish. In Taiwan people have hundreds of receipts of dishes with rice and fish. Traditionally, Chinese dinner is laid at the round table in the center of which there is a flat circle on a revolving stand. It is necessary to point out that meals are served on big plates and are put in required amount on small plates by a person. At first cold snack is served, then time comes for hot dishes and only after these dishes the so called principle dishes are served.

In Taiwan people like to eat dishes with rice, meat and fish. In the end of dinner a soup or a broth is served. There is no dessert fruits and sweets are on the table during all the dinner and they are very often used in the principle dish (Bates 2005). Consequently, Taiwan cuisine represents one face by which a country is famous for. Traditional breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Taiwan are similar to breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Europe; however, there are some details you should know about Taiwan cuisine.

Taiwanese architecture is composed of variety of styles. The old traditional architectural model of houses in Taiwan still exists here. However, traditional architectural features of Taiwanese style become unimportant when entertaining and commercial institutions, such as shops and theaters, are built. We should emphasize that modern Taiwanese architecture unites traditional Taiwanese and European architecture styles. There appear buildings in European style, such as buildings of foreign consulates, foreign concessions, banks, hotels and clubs in big cities.

Improve Productivity And Motivation. How Can Feng Shui Help

18

Are you a business owner looking for new ideas to improve employee morale, boost creativity and productivity? Do you wonder if adding features like tennis courts and jacuzzi tubs will help?

When it comes to improving the productivity of employees there is no answer in general.Great leadership plays the most important role!Managers need to find ways to motivate their employees with what they do and say – furniture and decor is just one part of it.

After bringing in the element of ‘fun’ like ping pong tables into an office space management will find out quickly that nobody is using them. Ping Pong tables will turn out to be more of a monument to what the business is trying to portrait.It is a fact that by encouraging pool tournaments it is not going to help any business achieving increases in revenue.

Many companies have asked me if re-designing an office in a way that it is more un-conventional will improve results. Managers now believe that productivity will be increased when adding entertainment zones. Wrong! Clearly by just taking this approach, the philosophy again is introduced that ‘one office idea fits all’.

For instance, just recently we designed a sales department in Dallas, Texas according to the principles of Feng Shui for offices. After we did the complete Feng Shui Consultation based on the Sitting and the Facing of the space we learned which Feng Shui colors and materials to introduce, and even more important what we need to avoid, to create an environment conducive to success.We stayed in close contact with each individual top producer of the company based on this range of energy enhancing aspects.Management personally involved each one of the Top Ten Sales People which created a high level of excitement which is rarely experienced. Learning from these top producers how they felt about their soon to be created work space taught us that the ‘one fits all approach’ is not the way to go. If you want to create a productive environment, it is far more important to involve each individual employee asking for input and ideas – creating a sense of ‘ownership’ for results.When consulting with a Feng Shui Professional you are not just hiring an interior designer to turn an office space into a game park – yet interior design layouts based on Feng Shui definetely works!

The spaces we created were so individual in out-come based on Feng Shui and the individual employee an outcome you will never achieve by just adding ping pong tables in order to appear “hip”.

The Importance Of Feng Shui Front Door Color

15

The front door to your home is the portal through which everyone steps to enter your living space. In the Feng Shui system of beliefs, the Feng Shui front door color is of the utmost importance. According to Feng Shui principles, the front door is described as the mouth of Chi.

The front door is the way that Chi energy enters your home. Thus the front door is where anyone should start creating a Feng Shui house. In modern society the front door is bypassed by many people as they use a side entrance for instance from the garage where they got out of their car.

So it is not illogical for people to ask whether Feng Shui front door color is still as vitally important as in the past. The answer to this is an empathic yes. Most front doors are centrally placed at the front of a house and normally face the road.

The road is seen as a symbol of water and water is equated with prosperity and wealth. Whatever your front door faces out to, whether a road, an open expanse of nature or the city, it is the portal to the home.

Invite Positive Chi

This makes it the entryway for Chi to enter your home and as such the Feng Shui front door color is highly important. Modern homes are often not built in the traditional way with the best views or expansive open spaces at the front. This changes the concept of where the front door actually should be. This is where yang energy comes into play.

The side of your house that has the most yang energy, meaning the side that faces the best open space or view, should then be considered the front door. This will be the door that should use Feng Shui front door colors to encourage Chi to enter. In Feng Shui the most auspicious Feng Shui front door colors are red and purple as both are bold and fiery colors. There are several reasons why everyone should make a point of entering their homes through the front door.

As said in Feng Shui the front door is the portal and as such you should use that door. When you enter your home through the front door you bring with you a fresh flow of Chi. This means you create an entryway for wealth and prosperity to come into your home with you. Another reason the Feng Shui front door colors are so important is that fiery colors are warm and life giving. It is this vibrant energy force that should be invited into the home at each and every opportunity.

Trendy Bath Vanities, Sinks And Faucets Offer Feng Shui Asian Fusion Flair

1

There are a host of options at your disposal. Double-sink vanities, custom storage hutches and wall-mounted cabinets all merging form and function. All you need to do is determine your style statementcontemporary, traditional, vintage, Asian inspired or Old World.

As for your design style, lets say its Asian inspired. You wouldnt be alone with interest in that motif. The American bath culture has indeed changed. Stressed homeowners seek refuge and solace and thats why so many of us are creating environments in our homes conducive to the Eastern concept of centering. You dont have to be a certified Feng Shui master to recognize this increasing trend. Which translates to simple, clean lines and minimalist features that are a signature of the Asian-influenced design leaning. So hot in home furnishings, its not at all surprising that this thematic has made its way into the kitchen and bath. Its a measure of good design.

Its all about global style. From deep soaking tubs, exotic shower waterfalls
and sinks that sleekly exemplify the art of Zen.

As homeowners integrate Japanese koi ponds into estate home entryways and lanai water features (as in a tranquil Asian-style lushly landscaped courtyards), the Asian-motifs grace and beauty continues to be used for accessories, flooring and
furniture. In hardgoods, there are plenty of Asian-inspired looks, including:
faucets with a bamboo-like sculpted finishes, along with drawer pulls reminiscent of bamboo, wood cabinetry inspired by Asian aesthetics and a sink series with its square wooden basins modeled after a traditional Japanese
soaking tub.

Clean lines and simple forms specifically characterize vanity cabinets defined by Pacific/eastern cultures. Asian design can be more asymmetrical. It is subtle, yet dramatic, and creates a peaceful ambiance. Whats noteworthy about Asian fusion basics is that some of the products arent even necessarily defined as such. But what makes them work so well is that they offer a less is more point of view with linear, sleek and contemporary sensibilities that combine unique and differentiating elements.

Journaling Feng Shui

4

Journaling is an excellent tool for dealing emotionally with almost any issue in life. The therapeutic applications of journal writing are endless. But it’s also true that sometimes you feel stuck, unable to make a move in any direction, and not even able to sit down comfortably with your notebook.

For any number of reasons, known and/or unknown, you feel empty. You want to get answers, but you’re paralyzed in some limbo of inaction. You’re uninspired, listless, drifting. You haven’t even cleaned your house for the past month.

Hold it right there. When in doubt, simplify. Could it be that modifying your environment will energize you?

As sentient beings, people are affected by their environments. The flow of energy and the balance of forces in a given environment are studied in the ancient Chinese art of feng shui. Feng shui observes that clutter brings low, confusing, and draining energy into your home, which is detrimental to your own energy and well-being.

Clearing out physical clutter can seem like an overwhelming and tedious process, but when you live and work in a clear, open space, your mind also becomes free and uncluttered.

Your ease and wellbeing have everything to do with your surroundings. Could it be that your ennui is a result of the mess around you?

Here are some ideas to make the task of de-cluttering more palatable.

1. In the room or space where you plan to do your journaling, set a timer for 15 minutes.

2. Turn on some favorite music, open windows if the weather allows, invite a loved one to join in if you wish.

3. Clean one area of the space for the 15 minutes. Throw out as much as possible.

4. Be merciless. If you can’t think of a reason to keep it in a few seconds, get rid of it! Hoarding is a generally unhealthy thing to do.

5. Stop when the timer buzzes. Take a step back and admire your work. Great job!

If you want to, set the timer for another 15 or 30 minutes, and continue. Or just do 15 a day for a while. At some point, the room will be clean and refreshed. Now open your journal and write about the experience.

What did you see and feel when you looked at this room before? What do you see and feel now?

What old baggage, physical or emotional, were you able to throw away while cleaning? What items were the hardest to get rid of? Why?

How do you plan to keep your writing space fresh, inviting, and clean in the future?

Feng Shui And Numbers

7

Chinese who believe in Feng Shui are extremely superstitious about the figures they choose as their telephone number, house number, car number and the like. The categorization of some numbers as lucky and some as unlucky depends on the way they sound when spoken. For instance, in western numbers -eleven’ sounds like -heaven’ or number -eight’ sounds like -weight’ or number -one’ sounds like -son’.

Numbers considered unlucky by the Chinese: Number 4 (pronounced as Sei) is known to be a bad number because in Cantonese it sounds like the word -death’. Number 13 is unlucky because it adds up to 4. Apart from this, number 24 and 104 are also unlucky for the same reason.

Numbers considered lucky Numbers such as 108, 168, 99, 88, 84, 80, 68, 54, 48, 38, 28, 18, 8, are all good numbers. The main reason why 8 is lucky because if you pronounce the word (patt) it sounds like “faat” which denotes “prosperity and abundance”

Consequences of some lucky numbers and combinations:
289: Long-term prosperity
5: myself, me
518: I will flourish
5189: I will flourish for a very long time
516289: I will tread a long, smooth wealthy road
5918: I will prosper soon
6: smooth and easy
7: together
8: prosperity or sudden fortune

The cure If you have a house or businesses with 4 or 13, then just draw a circle around that number. The circle is tremendously powerful and captures the ill-fated effects of the negative number. There are two ways of doing it, one way is to go to the local hardware store and find a ceramic door number that can be customized with a circle. However, if you cannot afford to shelve out too much money then a simpler method is to simply go out and make a circle around the number. Also note, if you live or work at a place that has an unlucky number but is outside of China, consider how that number sounds in the native language of that particular country. How seriously should one take numbers? If you’re still looking for a house, office or car number then make sure you comply with the norms set by fengshui. However, if you already have bought one with number 4 or 13, don’t worry too much, just use the cure provided above or consider changing the number to a name like “rose cottage” -your company name- etc.

Numbers in Feng shui plays an important role, believers of fengshui always follow the number guide provided Chinese astrology . For more information on Fenghui and related topics please visit www.vaastshaastra.com
