Japan in Photos – Tsukiji Fish Market & Hamarikyu Gardens

Japan in Photos – Tsukiji Fish Market & Hamarikyu Gardens

I got back from Japan two days ago, and am still living in a bubble of disbelief. Japan is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever travelled to, with temples, shrines, greenery, and modern landscapes all within a tightly enclosed city.  Continue reading “Japan in Photos – Tsukiji Fish Market & Hamarikyu Gardens”

Dealing With Judgment As A Small Blogger

Dealing With Judgment As A Small Blogger

When I first started my blog, I was adamant on keeping it a secret. To a degree, Fung Shui is still operating behind closed doors – I haven’t shared my blog on my personal social media accounts, and have only shared it with my friends and family. A lot of it has to do with a fear of exposing oneself to criticism and judgment, and some of it has to deal with a desire to see if I can build my blog out of nothing.

Dumplings are the bomb and no one can tell me otherwise. They’re the perfect snack, breakfast, lunch, or dinner – basically, dumplings can be anything you want because they’re so good, and YYC’s new Dumpling Lab is proving it.  Continue reading “YYC’s Best Steamed Dumplings: Dumpling Lab Restaurant Review”

May Summer Faves

May Summer Faves

It’s June, which means that Calgary has finally reached the stage where we’re no longer afraid a snowstorm is going to rip through our streets. To celebrate that Calgary is tuning in with the rest of the world and actually having warm weather, this May Favourites post is going to centre around favourites I think are perfect for our Canadian two-month summer (the truth hurts when you realize we only get around 2 months of truly warm weather).

Calgary BibimBap Champion: Bowls, Korean YYC Restaurant Review

Calgary BibimBap Champion: Bowls, Korean YYC Restaurant Review

It’s been over a week since my last blog post, which is the first time I’ve gone off schedule for Fung Shui. Over the past week, I realized that with my spring class schedule, return to work, and overall need for some kind of relaxation, I’m going to need to cut down a bit with my posting. So, instead of twice a week, I’ll be posting once a week on Sundays from now on. Hopefully I’ll be able to make better posts once a week, and see where this goes from here!

Shopping Haul: Indigo Books vs. Three Gift Cards

Shopping Haul: Indigo Books vs. Three Gift Cards

I live in Canada, which means that instead of Barnes & Nobles, we have Indigo/Coles/Chapters book stores which are all owned by the same company. Lately, they’ve been converting all stores to Indigo, meaning that a lot of merchandise is beginning to focus on home and lifestyle products, like candles, Matt & Nat handbags, alphabet lightboxes, and the like.

Happy Mother’s Day: 22 Things I’m Grateful For During the 22 Years My Mom has been a Mom

Happy Mother’s Day!

I love my mom, and I know this sounds cheesy, but she is fearless, brave, and strong in ways I haven’t yet experienced. To recognize how much I love my mom on this day of mom-indulgence and mom-happiness, I wrote down twenty two things I’m grateful for during the twenty two years my mom has been a mom.

Calgary Date Night: Po-Ke Bowl Review & Bow River Walk

Calgary Date Night: Po-Ke Bowl Review & Bow River Walk

Setting foot in the foodie realm of Instagram is bound to leave you hungry, desperate, and volatile. Nearly every day, I see these pictures of beautiful Poke bowls from Calgary’s Po-Ke location waiting for me to eat them, and every day, I don’t. I was so desperate for a Poke bowl that I told Chris that we were going for our Friday date night, and that I didn’t care what he wanted for dinner (Chris wanted tacos, FYI).
