WHAT IS “YEET HAY” OR HOT AIR FOR CHINESE PEOPLE

Yeet Hay, or Hot Air is related to the Chinese concept of Yin and Yang in your food.

Chinese people have always categorized food into two categories:

“Hot Air” foods:

  • Fried food
  • Not enough sleep
  • A lot of alcohol
  • Beef
  • Spicy food

“Cold Air” foods:

  • Vegetables
  • Herbal Tea
  • Fruits

The Chinese believe that if you have more hot air or cold air, your Qi (or basically health) is out of balance causing sickness.

I personally don’t know what it feels like to be more “cold”. But I can definitely tell you what having too much “hot air” feels like:

  • Sore throat
  • Muscles Aches
  • Aches all over your body
  • Pain all over your body
  • Lack of patience due to pain all of your body

Not a big fan of “hot air”. I do scraping and drink a lot of herbal tea, it helps me release the “hot air”.

Unfortunately, there was a period of time when Life Boss had a lot “hot air”.

Basically this amounts to Life boss being angry 24/7, which also means my ass gets kicked 24 /7.

scared

To calm her down, I told her she can choose where and what to eat.

Life Boss: “OF COURSE I WILL, YOU ALWAYS COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN! USELESS!”

I had to strike the above out because life boss read my draft and said “what are you doing!!!!”.

scared

As a man, you have to take this shit.

smart

So with an angry, hot air life boss, we decided to eat at Hamataki.

  • Japanese food seems like a good choice for someone with a lot of hot air. Though this fried sausage probably does no good…Untitled
  • This ham was pretty good. But I don’t think it’s considered a “cold food”.Untitled
  • This pineapple was delicious. It’s considered a fruit, so I think it’s a cold air food? Cold air food, what the fuck am I talking about?Untitled
  • Some pancake shit. Nothing memorable.Untitled
  • Vegetable dish. Definitely a cold air food. Not sure what it is called though…and I am too scared to ask Life Boss what it is again…Untitled
  • I find salmon always calms me down. Too bad they only gave us four fucking pieces. Argh, now I am getting mad too. Untitled
  • Eel rice. Not bad. I actually enjoyed this and so did Life Boss. Untitled

A popular Chinese theory states that drinking beer or alcohol will help your yeet hay.

And I really wanted to get one for Life Boss.

But she’s been complaining that I have been drinking a lot lately, so I decided against ordering any alcoholic beverages.

I don’t want to set off a volcano!
