Chinese Center of Long Island with Senior Group Members on 11 February 2015

Screen Shot 2015-02-10 at 11.13.12 AMIt was such a delight to do a presentation for the senior group members of the Chinese Center of Long Island located in West Hempstead, NY. Nearly 50 people attended the presentation! In addition to giving a brief introduction about the Five Elements of the Sheep, RD shared predictions for the upcoming year for each Chinese animal sign and closed the presentation by teaching a couple qigong movements to foster “Good Health” and blessings for the Chinese New Year of the Sheep!

With sincere thanks for Mona Ng who invited me to the Chinese Center and her husband, Danny, a fellow Water Snake who took all the wonderful pictures of our fun chi-filled time;-) Mona said that “The feedback from the seniors were so positive. They absolutely loved your presentation! After you left they were still talking about your predictions for the year.”

Following the presentation, the members enjoyed the community gathering by playing mahjong, ping-pong, and of course, having a delicious buffet of homemade Chinese food!

Here are pictures from the event:

There are so many predictions to follow. For this presentation, I gave a brief synopsis from my colleague, Joey Yap. Here is the link if you wish to read your upcoming fortune for the Year of the Sheep or Goat!

What Feng Shui elements can I incorporate into my home to prosper good health?

    Hang a crystal in your window; it welcomes “healing rainbow of colors” into your space!
    Bring some bamboo into your home. They are easy to maintain and can flourish in all types of lighting situations.
    Other recommended plants can be the Areca Palm or Boston Fern plants; they help purify and clean the air in your home and work space! Check out the NASA Clean Air Study.
    Colorful flowers welcome “Good Luck for your Health”!

What are some Feng Shui recommendations for the New Year to obtain career success this year?

Here are three tips to obtain career success this year:

    1. Rearrange your work space! By changing the position of your desk, you will gain a new perspective about your career. A simple change in your work space will give you a new outlook for your projects.
    2. Change the artwork in your space will give you ideas for new opportunities!
    3. A wonderful feng shui “transcendental solution” is to light up the “Wealth” corner with lights on a timer from 11am (represents the “Sun” time) to 1pm and 11pm to 1am (represents the “Moon” time) which represents auspicious times. You can use Xmas lights or an uplight shining on a lush green plant or a piece of art which has meaning for you to bring in $money$ and to enhance your career.

TOURISM in Guatemala
Hotel Occupancy

While Guatemala has presented an annual growth rate of around 36% in the accommodation capacity; the touristic demand has rpesented a higher average annual growth rate demonstrating that the hotel / accommodation supply in #Guatemala does not fully satisfy the demand, and it’s A CLEAR OPPORTUNITY FOR BOTH NATIONAL AND FOREIGN INVESTORS TO DEVELOP THIS SECTOR.

Considering the current hotel supply and tourist demand for accommodation as well as diversity of products and destinations offered in Guatemala (with more than 10 unique destinations) allows visitors to extend their stay to an average of 7 days there is clearly an opportunity in the country to invest in the tourism industry.

The 3 departments of Guatemala with the largest number of accommodations facilities are Guatemala City, Peten and Sololá ( Lake Atitlan ) . Nevertheless, these existent hotel facilities are NOT enough to cover the demand in peak seasons (like Holy Week and Christmas – New Year’s)

Also other departments like Retalhuleu has only 67 lodging establishments, which currently do not meet the high demand of tourists, knowing that the department is visited both for its attractiveness in natural resources and because it houses the largest theme parks in Central America ( Xetulul and Xocomil ), capable of receiving up to 12 thousand people simultaneously.
