“How can you become a lucky man?” Have you ever think about this question before? every country has their own definition of lucky, some country believe that black cats are unlucky or crows are unlucky. We also have those kind of things in China. In China some peoples’ job is help other people select which kind of thing is lucky, which are not, we call them “FengShui master”. FengShui has two part, first part is about house and building, and second part is about people.
In China if you invite a FengShui master to your house, first he will look at those plants around your house. If a tall tree block the window, the master will ask you to cut it down because it also block your way to be success. Also the orientation of the house is very important too eastward is the best. After this the master will take out his “LuoPan” it work like a compass, he will use it to detection the magnetic field around your house, if the magnetic field around your house is stable, your house should bring luck and peace for you.
Next part of “FengShui” is about people. First they will look at people’s face and the form of skull, they believe people who has Large forehead and fat earlobe will become very rich, like trump’s face.
This is a very important tradition in China, and most of Chinese people believe in this. Do you want use those kinds of things to be a lucky man
Today I am thinking about traditions in my home country, cause the homecoming day will coming these days, it also making me think our fall tradition s China, and I think about a very important fall festival in china which is Mid-Autumn Festival.
In china we have a traditional festival called ” Mid-Autumn Festival”. Have you ever heard moon cake? We eat that in Mid Autumn Festival. Mid Autumn Festival is Aug 15th in Lunar Calendar, that is Oct 4th. Normally in that day we should stay with our family and have a very big dinner together, after the dinner we watch the moon and we light a lots of fireworks.
But I haven’t spend time with my family for 2 years, cause I am studying aboard, far a away from my hometown. This Mid Autumn Festival I missed my family so much. I’m very lucky my cousin mailed me some moon cake from New York, I ate them and looked at the moon all night. Because I think unless I can share the same moon light with my family together it made me better.
I am a city boy, growing up in the city study in the city also live in the city, but last Friday I had a very exciting trip with my friends of global education. We went to a very big farm nearby our university. It is also the first time I had a trip to a farm.
I saw a lot of crops there, pair, pumpkin, corn, mum…….. they are so beautiful. I never seen those crops before.
And their is a very good store there with a lots of farm products and different kinds of bake food . I found a very big pumpkin and a very strange thing but I forgot its name again. And I like those mums very much. Before we came back to school I got a cake called pair dumpling it was very good.
That was a very exciting trip I will come back if I have time in the future.
