 FINALE - PART 3 OF THE CONCERT & BLOG,
<<RHYTHM OF THE GREAT WALL, THE SOUND OF ARTS>> 

Doing up this blog a little quicker this time round just before school, so what are we talking about in this final part here? As mentioned in the title, we will be talking about the FINALE of that night, some extra memorable KEY POINTS and too some special guests list! 

So what should we begin with? A little heavy on content today but let's do it one by one! 

Let's start with what I found was memorable that day, I must say the whole event itself was really memorable but MOST memorable was hearing the shouting of ENCORE! With that, Tenor Zhuang Jie sang multiple other songs, and what impacted most was actually the song "In The Water Side", a modern classical which is renowned by many generations, not just one generation but multiple generations. If you are interested in this, you can surely check out Lotus On Water Facebook page whereby we have a short clip of it in fusion with Master Yun's fengshui paintings.

Next, let's move on to some special guests that attended this grand concert, some specific ones of course!! Starting with the VVIP zone where Master Yun is, we have......

- Mr Anthony Chaumuzeau, Counsellor for Culture, Education and Science, of the French Embassy

- Mr Jorge Garcia, Second Secretary of the Embassy of Peru in Singapore.

- 肖江华先生, 中国文化中心主任

- 何伟山先生, 新加坡华乐团行政总监

- 叶聪先生, 新加坡华乐团音乐总监

- Mr Marcel Bertaud, Director of Laurent-Perriers for Asia 

On the other hand, we will be showcasing VIPs from Mr Kan, Cola sides.

- 范敏范董, 携程网联合创始人

- 李小东李董, 东海集团的董事长及联合创始人

- 张涛张董, 大众点评CEO与创始人

- 胡猛胡董, 凤和集团的创始人

- 雷鸣雷董, 百度七剑客之一, 酷我创始人 

Not just these, there are also many many other very important guests and clients from Lotus On Water such as the CEO of the largest Solar company and also not forgetting our LOTUS FOLLOWERS!! Shall place some nicely taken photos down below!!



I will also briefly mention about some of the charming paintings that was displayed at SCO but maybe if you did not pay close enough attention, you would have missed it. 

1. Proudly Tasteful


2. Fan Up Prosperity Courageously


3. Criss Crossing of Gold and Silver


Don't wonder why I did not put the Thoughts Of Paintings here, it was fully INTENTIONAL. If you are curious about these paintings, you can checkout masteryunart.com where Master Yun places his Thoughts Of Paintings.


And the last song for the day goes to Libiamo ne'lieti calici sang by all the performers, ending off the concert with a surprise. I must say it was a great performance and Master Yun ought to be the first to fuse these arts together, visually and auditorily, while at the same time raising the values of both culture and arts, a truly noble act which only Master Yun could achieve.

 THE FINAL PART OF PART 2,(d) OF THAT EXCITING NIGHT,<<RHYTHM OF THE GREAT WALL, THE SOUND OF ARTS>>

We are currently down to the last 5 songs and paintings to talk about! Let's just finish it in this blog and perhaps in the next blog, I would end off with some EXCITEMENT! For example, who are the guests that appeared that day and also why that night was that special! In fact, reading our blogs is actually a way to show the beauty of Master Yun's art paintings and the true value it portrays. 

However, today not just the 5 songs but I will be talking about one of our KEY personnels, Kunhua! A really wonderful radio DJ from YES 933, bilingually fluent and speaks with great confidence, illustrating the BEAUTY and VALUE of the fusion between Master Yun's fengshui paintings and Tenor Zhuang Jie singing.

Without further ado, let's hop into our 1st song of this blog and also the 9th song of this event! It's a little interesting this time round, as we all know, Master Yun's paintings are really special, under daylight it portrays a mixture of REAL GOLD and SILVER, shiny and glamorous. However, under ultraviolet light, it looks like stars in the galaxy, and some even has special effects, for instance a chinese wording is shown, did you see it?

Hence, with all these, we will be introducing two songs, The Wisteria and The Mighty River Flows East. One of which from a Chinese Opera, Mourning. The other is then from the Song Dynasty. However, how can we miss the Thoughts On Paintings? Let's take a look at this painting, one of everyone's favorite - " Birth and Rebirth of Prosperous Life".


画中有思
THOUGHTS ON PAINTINGS

此画在荧光下
Under the UV light

像有个人从蚌壳里(孔雀身上)
A man is taking out from the seashell (the peacock body)

取出灵丹如珍珠
An elixir like pearls

把人生都亮得长寿富贵
To light up his universe into longevity and prosperity.

Let's jump into song 11 and this song covered 2 paintings!
No 11: Panis Angelicus 
Panis angelicus (Latin for "Bread of Angels" or "Angelic Bread") is the penultimate strophe of the hymn "Sacris Solemnnis" written by Saint Thomas Aquinas for the feast of Corpus Christi as part of a complete liturgy of the feast, including prayers for the Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours.


What are the fascinating paintings which matches this dazzling song? One of it being sang in the last of Zhuang Jie Sunday LIVE, the "Season Of Sowing And Harvest". And the other being "Golden Sky". Two fantastic paintings involving the elegance of both peacock embraced the paintings, not just that, Master Yun's fengshui paintings are even being collected by the Director of Lourve Art Museum. Let's just display the paintings and the Thoughts On Paintings!
First, "Season Of Sowing And Harvesting".


画中有思
THOUGHTS ON PAINTINGS

荧光中的翎眼像洒下的禾种
The peacock eyes look like sowing seeds in the UV light

日光中的翎毛像可收割的金黄稻穗
The peacock feathers look like golden rice ripe for harvest in the daylight

夜里的心愿如种
The wishes are seeds at night

天白可收割
To become rich harvest when the day is bright

Next, " Golden Sky ".


画中有思
THOUGHTS ON PAINTINGS

荧光下,
左方是盘旋而上的龙身
Under UV light, the left side looks like a huge long dragon twisting body rising up

上方正中是个正面的金龙
On top of the painting is a golden dragon facing front

金龙旁边有个侧面的凤凰
Next to the dragon is a Phoenix

闪光下,
右方的两朵金团是皇帝
插在状元头上的御赐金花
Under the spot light , the right side is two lumps of gold petals. Looks like the imperial golden flowers the emperors in the past would pierce onto the hat of the top scorer of imperial examination

正中有枚戒指
In the center,
some see a ring

有者称之为右脑开放
Some call it the activation of the right brain

有者称之为第三眼开了
Some say the third eye is opened

有者称之为赏物之冥思,
如同观赏水晶球一样
Some call it meditation by contemplation, like when you are looking into the crystal ball

无论如何称谓,
上天总把秘密启示与如孩童般睁开的心眼
Whatever you call it, the universe always reveal secrets to those with the open childlike eyes in their hearts

No 12: Dein ist mein ganzes Herz
A German song, in English, Yours Is My Heart Alone. Written in D-flat major, Lehár had composed parts of the song already in 1923 when the original version of the operetta premiered under the title Die gelbe Jacke (The Yellow Jacket). When Löhner-Beda re-arranged the operetta, he moved Prince Sou-Chong's passage from act 1 to act 2. With new lyrics, it has possibly become Lehár's most famous single song, popularised by Tauber, who sang it at almost every recital he gave, often as an encore. With Tauber's emigration to London in 1938, it became popular also in the English-speaking world with lyrics by Harry B.Smith, which had originally been written in 1931, and went on to become a staple of light music repertoire for tenor voice. It became a standard and has been covered by artists from other genres, like jazz, swing, big band, and pop music.



And the painting is no other than a mixture of colors, yellow with white and a little complementary blue and green. One of the starting few Master Yun's paintings, the "Golden And Silver Wishes". 


画中有思
THOUGHTS ON PAINTINGS

有人喜欢我这幅画
因为鹤头(至颈项)像似英文字母S
Someone say they like this painting because the head of the crane looks like S

S即$$$$!
S for $$$$!

好有创意!
Creative!

艺术、生意、赚钱,
都得有灵感与创意!
Art、business or money making needs inspiration and creativity!

 2......(c) Of THAT MAGICAL EVENING,  << RHYTHM OF THE GREAT WALL, THE SOUND OF ARTS>>

If I'm right, this is our 6/13 song and painting mentioned! Which also means, we are half-way through the concert! Such a amazing concert with lots of surprises, before we go to our 6th, 7th and 8th song, we should give some context regarding Master Yun Long Zi and Lotus On Water. Master Yun Long Zi is the 6th generation Fengshui Master in his family. Inheriting the wisdom and knowledge from his predecessors, Master Yun founded Lotus On Water Feng Shui Gallery in 2006. Lotus On Water offers authentic and elegant Fengshui jewelry, collected even by the Royalties, transforming and prospering lives of its passionate and large following. More information later when you scroll down!!


Let's move to our 6th song then!


No 6: Au fond du temple saint 
A Duet between the Tenor Zhuang Jie & Baritone Alvin Tan, a beautiful French song by Georges Bizet. "Au fond du temple saint" ("At the back of the holy temple") is a duet from 1863 opera Les pêcheurs de perles. The libretto was written by Eugène Cormon and Michel Carré. Generally known as "The Pearl Fishers' Duet", it is one of the most popular numbers in Western opera – it appeared on seven of the Classic 100 Countdowns conducted by ABC Classic FM.


So again, which painting will this song go with? We have seen so many unique, special paintings in the past few blogs and also definitely our Facebook Page! Just in case you hadn't followed our Facebook Page, it's named Lotus On Water! So this painting we are talking about here is "Power Of Heaven, Strength of Great", another silk series painting! So what's the story behind this painting? 


画中有思
THOUGHTS ON PAINTINGS

易经之乾卦,是纯阳卦。
内卦为乾,外卦亦为乾。
In the Confucius Classic of Divination, reads the hexagram of Qian as pure Yang (positive). Both the hexagram inside and the hexagram outside are Yang.

象曰:天行健 君子以自强不息。
And the interpretation of the hexagram reads: “ it is liken to the healthy functioning of the Heaven. The Great man must self strengthen and sustaining.”

我年轻的时候常想,
为什么要有个"自"字?
"强而不息"不就行了吗?
何必以"自"为赘?
When I was young, I always ponder, why is the word of “self”? Isn’t it redundant.

长点了智慧才知道:庸者,众也。
多未必善。
心得"自"强。
When I grow wiser I began to see the multitude in the numbers of mediocrities. The more may not be merrier. The Great has no one to depend on but “self”.

可是如果乾巧遇乾,
内卦乾而外卦复乾。
则朗朗天下。
But if it is of great luck that a great person meet another, the Yang energy meeting Yang, there will be bright light in the universe.

如同:
撒切尔夫人巧遇里根总统,
邱吉尔首相巧逢罗斯福总统,
李光耀资政适逢邓小平同志。
It is liken to Magaret Thatcher meeting Reagan, Churchill having Roosevelt, and Lee kuan Yew knowing Deng Xiao Ping.

不仅独善其身,
亦可兼济天下。
A beautiful world becomes a great bright new world.


What made this concert even more special was this 12 years old boy, Ethan Chow Zi Hao, a very young Flautist or rather a really talented one who attained ABRSM Grade 8 certificate with Distinction in flute performance within 6 years.

No 7: The Surging Red River
A song from the Song Dynasty by Yue Fei. Common adjectives used to describe this song for instance, NOBLE and POWERFUL. Since the words from Yue Fei have already sunken into people's heart, with such melody matched by Duan Pintai, this song has truly became a classical music sang by many wonderful musicians and this time Tenor Zhuang Jie. 

Water has been always a form of wealth. Hence making this combination of this song with this painting, " Paradise Drizzling Now". 


画中有思
THOUGHTS ON PAINTINGS

是的!似乎有雨丝降至鹰上
Yes! Seem to have drizzles upon the eagle

是阳光如雨丝
DrizzleS of sunlight

也是阿弥陀佛身上发出的光丝如雨丝
Also the drizzles of Amitabha Buddha

因为光丝上题了整部阿弥陀经
Cos on the Drizzles is the sutra of Amitabha Buddha

经上形容阿弥陀乐土中的珠宝,
华丽与法力
Describing the beauty luxury power and treasures of the paradise of Amitabha

阿弥陀佛也叫无量光佛,无量寿佛
Amitabha is also known as the Buddha of limitless light and Buddha of limitless longevity

在荧光下,光丝带硃砂经文发亮
In UV light, the drizzles with the sutra will glow

如阿弥陀佛身上光丝
Like the strings of light from Amitabha Buddha

把乐土带进你的生命
Bringing paradise into your life

也把你的生命带进乐土
Bring your life Into paradise

No 8: The Legend 
Up till now, this is my favorite song by Li Jian, one of the best singers in my opinion. Li Jian words are often cultural- enriched and filled with emotions, especially those lyrics used in this song, together expressing one of the grandest paintings too, " Into Dreams Of Celebrations".


画中有思
THOUGHTS ON PAINTINGS

听说灵魂有记忆
I heard the soul has memory

听说前世影响今生
I heard the memory of past life affects the present

今生影响来世
And the present life affect the next

听说梦中是前世的倒影
I heard that dreams are reflections of past life

梦醒把倒影引入现实
When we awake we bring the reflection into this world

以此画为一潭明镜
May this painting be a pond of clear mirror

将前世你的
最美,最喜,最乐,最富,最贵...
Bringing from your past life, the most beautiful, the joyous, the happiest, the richest, the most elegant...

都映进你今生的现实
Reflecting all the most wonderful, into the reality of your present life


THIS IS THE END OF PART C!!!! If you are looking forward to the next part then continue to watch our blog and also get reminders from Facebook!!

9-Squares: How Many Types of Lotus on Water Collections Do You Own?


How many types of Lotus on Water collections have you bought?

But do you know, when you have more and different types of Lotus collections, they connect and enhance each other, they get more powerful, and you get more HUAT?

Here's encouraging you to take your next steps, and unlock all 9 NINE types of Lotus collections!

Let's play tic-tac-toe! Once you own 3 THREE collections in a row, you achieve 1 ONE line. Be it horizontal, vertical or diagonal line. Till the end of June 2021, the total number of lines you achieve wins you a type of amazing and rare prize!!

And if you ALSO own Lotus sandalwood and black inkstone, that means you have fulfilled 2 TWO lines!

The technique to produce Heavenly Green Porcelain 天青瓷 was lost since way before Song dynasty 宋代, now, remade with today's technology. You can use it for lighting incense, or for drinking.

AND, if you have also done up your house fengshui, you own Lotus crystal mountain, and have also been doing up your annual fengshui, that means you would have fulfilled 3 THREE lines!



The prize of 3 THREE lines: Celebrationism Tea 欢庆茶


Raw Pu'Er tea, made since Spring 2017, to commemorate Master Yun's first ever public fengshui art exhibition at ION Orchard. Since then, Master Yun's art has progressed leaps and bounds, from Singapore all the way to the Great Wall of China. This commemorative tea is really something that reminds us constantly, what can we achieve in the years to come.

And so it goes on. With every type of Lotus collection you own, you achieve more lines, you unlock more amazing type of gift.

When you achieve 4 FOUR lines, the gift is Aged 50-years Pine Soot Inkstick 50年的古墨



While you might not be doing calligraphy any time soon, this 50-years inkstick is definitely a collectable, and also the same kind that Master Yun is using for his paintings.

5 FIVE lines: Yunan 26 Cultural Ethnicity Pu'Er Tea Set云南二十六民族文化套装普洱茶
 
 
Other than being an excellent tea, a very fun thing is that the newspaper of the year that this tea was made, is included -- see, year 2010! Talk about something historically significant! So you see, even the gifts that Lotus offers, are aged, precious and rare.
 

6 SIX lines: Burmese Rosewood 16mm (limited) 缅甸黄花梨(草花梨)16mm (限量)


Rosewood, already very rare. Now, carved as HUGE beads. Compliments the power of your Lotus collections.

Now, when you achieve 8 EIGHT lines, we give you the 108 beads of Hainan Rosewood and Golden Heart Red Sandalwood. Both compliment the power of your Lotus collections.

A few hints and notes:
