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.


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


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


As a man, you have to take this shit.


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!
