BT 201811 Art 01神话:龙赐予财富和幸运

谁都想要拥有运气。任何想要找到运气的人都会怀有源于我们祖先历史影响的某种信仰。 我们在房子的任何地方展示代表运气的各种图腾,在建筑物或在选择住宅或商业场所时应用风水等概念。

新年一直是令人着迷的。节日总是充满了好运和魅力。 龙舞象征着人们期待全年充满希望,是心愿和财富的主要表现。 龙在舞蹈中的时间越长,它将给予人们越多的运气和财富。 这种舞蹈必须以优雅和完美的方式进行。随着鼓的节奏而移动,深入一个人的灵魂,让它感觉到有特殊力量流过。一切都与 色彩、丰收、繁荣和欢乐的气氛有关。龙也是过去帝王的象征!


BT 201811 Art 02Luck is desirable. Anyone who wishes to find luck harbors a certain belief that originated from the historical influence of our ancestors. We collect good luck charms of different kinds that reflect the personality of our character. We hang and display them everywhere in the house, wear them fashionably, or apply concepts such as feng shui in building or when choosing a place for dwelling or business.

In Mythology, dragons play a very significant role in the shaping of our culture. A dragon is a symbol of many elements - wealth, luck, immortality, protection, success, wisdom, power, peace, longevity and nobility. Over the years, it gained popularity even on the global platform. As it happens, the Chinese dragon is contrary to European dragons that symbolize destructions and havoc. In comparison, European dragons are known for their fire-breathing, serpent-like creature appearance, while Chinese dragons are wingless and are celestial beings that are believed to emit “Sheng Qi” that attracts wealth, luck and success. Considered as the highest-ranking animal in the hierarchy, dragons are the emblems of emperors, making them a symbol of imperial power, greatness and excellence.

Dragons not only bestow wealth and fortune but also protect the homes of the innocent by destroying evil spirits. If you travel within Asia, it is highly remarkable how buildings and houses use the symbol and images as decors. Because they are known for good luck, people believed that their lives will be safe from the attacks of bad spirits that bring sickness, poverty, and misfortunes.

New Year has always been fascinating and life-changing. The festivity is so full of good luck symbols and charms. Dragon dance becomes a main performance where people look forward to blessings of hope, good luck and fortune throughout the year. The longer the dragon is in the dance, the more luck and fortune it will grant to its community. This dance has to be performed with grace and perfection, bringing every part of it to life. Movements that go with the rhythm of the drums bring adrenalin to one’s soul and make it feel that there is a special power of abundance flowing through. Colours are associated with good harvest, prosperity and joyous atmosphere.

What gives us the reason to believe that it showers wealth? Perhaps the personality and character of this creature is attributed to the timeless belief of its existence. Unlike the Western belief, our dragons are not monsters that destroy and kill. Throughout the different eras, it has represented our country with people of uncompromising and unshakeable spirit. With its high reputation in culture, we cling to the fact that they can really bring us wealth and fortune. If you are born in the year of the dragon, which is considered the luckiest year of the zodiac, you are expected to be a person of great success and possess the qualities of being smart, ambitious and passionate. So many couples try to have a baby in the dragon year. Businessmen believe in order to have a fruitful business, and if some bad luck comes along the way, they can be protected and recover from financial troubles.

Lungs represent abundance. They confer power in form of seasons, bringing essence to life like water from rain, warmth of the sunshine, wind from the seas and soil from earth. This imaginary creature that was once a myth has been brought to life by our desire to live a life that is free from misfortune and is open to success. May we keep the dragon spirit in all areas of our life without forgetting that our opulence depends on our unyielding spirit of becoming bountiful!

This entire year 2018 has been a grind for Caroline Garcia, but during the previous month of October she was flying high in Tianjin. Now that she's gotten at least one title this season, Caroline looks forward to the New Year with similar aspirations. Caroline Garcia is a woman blessed with plenty of courage and self-confidence, and she has demonstrated both during the final of 2018 Tianjin Open. We have the opportunity to sit down with Caroline and ask her a few questions after she won the trophy of 2018 Tianjin Open.

Florentia Village Outlet Mall is the first luxury designer outlet in China, and is located in Wuqing, just 10 minutes by high speed train from downtown Tianjin. Inside the outlet mall, you can find probably the best Italian food and tastefully decorated Italian restaurant in town. Bella Vita is not just another Italian restaurant. It is a place to gain an exquisite Italian dining experience created by carefully selected imported ingredients to bring out the original flavours of Italy. We talk this month with Samuele Rossi, General Manager of Bella Vita Restaurant to know the secret of his success.

Another interesting article is about the exhibition at the Tianjin Museum that is being held till December 14th, 2018, under the title “Pompeii - The Infinite Life”. Tianjin Museum displays 120 works and artifacts from the first century A.D., of this ancient Roman city. After the destruction of Pompeii due to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, successive generations have preserved the remains of the city as it was at the very moment of the volcanic eruptions, making it a unique document of the Greco Roman life.

I am sure you will find very interesting all the other articles that we have published this month, and we hope that you will enjoy and find them useful in your daily life.
