I just step on a rug that is full of dog’s pee. Yuck!!!! Damn!!! We just stepped into Perilla’s house, and my feet are already complaining about the stickiness. Feels like I am walking on a floor made of chewing gum. Perilla has two dogs, and the floor is full of their fur. Ten minutes into the audit and I cannot take it anymore. I made an excuse to use Perilla's toilet so that I can wash my feet. However, when I stepped out of the toilet and dried my feet on the rug; the rug
“Hamid, can I request you put your index finger under your nose? Do you find it difficult to breathe?” I asked. Hamid is the proud owner of a Muslim Resturant. He had a Feng Shui Master audited his restaurant two years ago when the restaurant opened and was advised to block up an entrance closer to the escalator leading to his restaurant and direct the customer to another entry 12 meters away. Writing this article is not to claim we are better than other Feng Shui Consultants
Women unallowed to enter places of worship during their menstruation is a subject that is not likely to be debated openly. Many women also accepted this as a norm and obliged blindly to the myth and not question this folklore. My view on lady not allowed to enter the place of worship is gender discrimination. If God has an intention for women not to get into the location of religion during her menstruation than god shouldn’t have created lady to have menstruation, period. The
“Yes, you are right Master. Vivian, my eldest daughter, has a bad temper.” Said Judy. Shake his head in disagreement, Patrick said “Mommy, describing Vivian has a bad temper an understatement. Jie Jie (Sister) is irritable. She stinks.” Judy is moving into her new condominium and visited us for a Free Floor Plan Analysis last weekend. She was surprised we could read her daughter's character, and Vivian is not present. Judy is a little concern and asked, “So is there anything

Houses are getting smaller; space planning becomes a challenge. One of the greatest issues is to have a study table for the kids in their bedroom. We as a parent always want to provide the best for our children and what is a good place for them to study? We have many teachers as our clients, and I took their advice. Let your kids study in the dining room or living room. The benefits are that you can monitor them while you are doing your household chores, build bonding among s
Dear devotees, your GOD is not a security guard. Very often when we are conducting our Feng Shui On-Site Audits, our client will ask where can they place their altar? Most people have the wrong perception that their god must face the front door. When you ask them why must their god be facing the door? The standard answers are my parent say-so, or we grew up seeing our parents doing it. So where should the altar be? It depends on which god are you worshipping? For example, Mot
Growing up watching Hong Kong Movie and TV serial, I thought Feng Shui Practitioner is Ghostbuster, fortune teller or sword dancer. I also associate them to Taoist priest performing sacrificial on stage, ring a hand bell profusely in the funeral, possess the skill of a circus flamethrower and have the ability to control vampire with a talisman on its forehead and most importantly, a kung-fu expert, etc. Never think too highly of Feng Shui Practitioners, felt that they are sup

While we were auditing Mabel’s house last week, we saw pebbles in all the planter boxes and flower pots. Cyst in the breast or on the ovary is
The examination is nowhere near, but it is always at the heart of every parent. Asian children are always very stressed up with the never ending tests and examinations. Can Feng Shui help to address this concern? What can a parent do to iron out this traumatising issue? During my Feng Shui talk and floor plan analysis last month, I met a house owner that has been living for 20 years in a house that has a very awkward shape. After analysing his house, there is only one good th
How many times you come out of the toilet, and you met a friend who wanted to shake your hand? Your hand is still wet; you apologised, you quickly rubbed your hand onto your pants or shirt before extending your hand?
What if there is no more toilet paper after you have done your big business?
Or your own body turned on you, your special friend shows up a few days earlier, and you don't have a tampon with you. No pad. Toilet paper run out. You are in the handicapped toi
Master, how come you don’t need our BAZI, and you can read our luck cycle, characters, lifestyle, etc. from our floor plan? Furthermore, our house will only be ready in the year 2022.’ The above questions would be the quintessential every time we do a floor plan analysis for a potential client. So how come we do not need your BAZI to analysis or audit your house’s Feng Shui? BAZI is the year, month, date and time of your birth. The history of BAZI is about 5000 years old and
Oh My God! I cannot even see my hand! It is 9 am, bright and sunny day, and we are conducting an On Site Feng Shui Audit for Susan’s newly purchased resale flat. But her flat is so pitch-dark that we needed to turn on the lights for the whole house. The corridor leading towards the bedrooms is in total darkness as all the bedroom's doors are shut.
