Hi everyone!

Jade Dynasty Seafood Restaurant will make Jung from May 20 to June 10, 2019 (This year, the official day of the holiday is June 7, 2019). You can call now at (808) 947-8818 to place advance orders for pick-up or dining in. The Jung weighs 1 lb. Its ingredients include Abalone, Pork Belly, Salted Duck Egg, Green Beans, & Mochi Rice. Each Jung costs $8.95.

THE STORY
Qu Yuan (340-278 BC) was the top advisor of the Kingdom of Chu & dedicated his whole life to assisting the King to build the State stronger. He advised the King to ally w/ the State of Qi, 1 of the 7 warring states, to fight against the most powerful State of Qin. However, he was slandered by jealous officials & accused of treason, so the King dismissed & exiled him.

During his exile, Qu Yuan wrote enduring poems showing his love for his country, some of which are still very famous in China.

In 278 BC, the Qin State conquered the capital of Chu. On hearing of the defeat, Qu Yuan, in great despair, committed suicide by drowning himself in the Miluo River on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month.

The rest is legend… When the local community heard of Qu Yuan’s death, they were very sad & rowed out on boats in the river to search for his body but were unable to find him. To preserve his body, the locals paddled their boats up & down the river, hitting the water w/ their paddles & beating drums to scare evil spirits away. They threw lumps of rice into the river to feed the fish, so that they wouldn’t eat Qu Yuan’s body.

Since then, people in the Miluo River area have followed similar practices to commemorate Qu Yuan on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month. Over time, rowing boats developed into dragon boat racing & the lumps of rice became sticky rice dumplings called Jung traditionally eaten during the festival in honor of the great Qu Yuan!

Reset your daily hustle by helping others, and enjoying a meal and conversation with friends.


My friend Mike made some awesome cornish hen, a great meal after we did some moving of furniture for his mom the past two days. I don’t watch much TV or movies so it was great to see Aquaman and Game of Thrones over dinner. Nice to see a Hawaii boy star in a big studio film! Game of Thrones is such a moving and inspirational TV show and book series for me!

We can’t just work on our #career all the time. Every so often we need to reset our daily #hustle by helping others, and enjoying a meal and conversation with friends. It’s also good to watch a movie and read a #book that lifts our spirits. Our #experiences and #messages can transcend this physical world. When we die, they live on through those we’ve touched. The messages we leave behind through our content will share a bit of our soul for others going through their journey of life.
