Feng Shui isn't magic, it's also not house maintenance!'s post is about how many people do not understand what feng shui is about. It is an anceint Chinese science that teaches you how to apply living skills to better your health, wealth, happiness and harmony. It is also about how to subdue afflictions in your home and work enviroment.

It is not magic and it does not repair and maintain your house!

I am saying this because I get so many kooky customers who ask me strange questions like....

I bought a new car, can you give me a set of numbers to register the car with that will come out in gaming sessions and bring me lots of wealth? Or the latest....this lady walks in to ask if we have anything in the shop that will stop the leaks in her roof tiles or her pipes(?????) She said, no matter how many times she gets someone to repair the leaks, somewhere else will leak.

I told her to go get good experienced plumbers! *&^%$#@!!

Or that other one who walked in to ask if we had anything for her to wear/carry that will stop her looking at feng shui things in her house. ???????? I really don't know what she meant - is there someone who is over-enhancing their house with feng shui items or is she seeing more than she should each time she walks into her house? (She is currently pregnant).

Close your eyes baby! Close your eyes!

Slow down! Life's passing by so quickly!

Omigosh! You mean it's been almost 4 months since I last wrote a blog. Doesn't life zip by when you are growing and more mature?

Let's see now, what has happened since December 2007 - Been absolutely busy with peak period for feng shui (From November to June, especially before the Chinese Lunar Year). It's that time of the year when everyone's rushing to purchase enhancers and remedial items for the forthcoming year. Also the peak period for feng shui consultations and paht chee readings (8 Pillars Readings). This year of the Rat is good to most people except the Horse-born, who is extremely afflicted this year. I can't even remember how many Horses have already dropped by to complain about their health or accidents and how there has been obstacles in their path at work and in life. Better be careful than they always say...prevention is better than cure. Whatever it is, I am a Horse born so I would rather be 'Kiasu' (Afraid to lose out on) as the Singaporeans say, than sorry.

So here I am, armed to the teeth with all..and I mean...ALL kinds of remedies and cures. My sifu said that there is no need to worry when you are protected. So mind you, I try not to jingle too much as I strut about! Psst.....I have several amulets clipped to my bra, am wearing a pendant, mantra rings on my fingers and mantra earrings on my ear lobes besides clinging and clanging items on my hand bag and dangling from my rear view mirror! Don't laugh! So far I am doing has improved 5-fold this year and my seniors are even asking me if I am really a Horse-born!

I am also convinced that the 9-Dragons Plaque I hang behind my chair is spicing things up for me. I couldn't afford a 24 k gold-plated one so I bought a Copper/Lacquer one. It is not for sale, not at any price because it brought me so much good business! I hung 2 (large & small) 24 k gold-plated 9 Dragons plaques in my office in front of me (On display) and I am happy to say I have sold out all my stock! I just ordered some more because a new shipment just arrived. It's a case of 'Better grab them as they come' because we never know when they will be available again.

Last week when I visited my head office for a meeting, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a huge 24 k gold-plated 9 Phoenixes Plaque!!!!! It was there for approval from Her Worshipness the Esteemed Feng Shui Master. I told the staff at the office that irrespective of what she decides, I WANT THAT PLAQUE!!!! Just imagine having a 9 Dragons AND a 9 Phoenixes Plaque hanging from my wall! THAT WOULD BE THE ULTIMATE GOOD FENG SHUI!!! Man, I would give my right arm to secure one of those!

Did you know that hanging or displaying a picture/art/plaque/painting/figurine of a Phoenix in the front part of your office will bring extremely good business luck irrespective of what you do or sell? Also irrespective of what gender you are (Don't be fooled by ignorant people who tell you that the Dragon is male and the Phoenix is female.). They only take on a male or female role when there is 1 Dragon and 1 Phoenix together as when they signify a marriage.

My Sifu said in the beginning of this year, that the Dragon-born has had good luck last year, even better luck this year and THE best luck next year in 2009. So, if you are a dragon-born, note this - when you have 3 years of great luck, and you know how to make the most of it, you've got it made. Make hay while the sun shines, no matter what career you have, 3 years of opportunities and knowing how to harvest it will set you up for life.

Everyone else should piggy-back on the luck of the Dragon, even its astrological enemy - the Dog-born. Go on, display lots of dragons in your house or office - be they single Dragons or 9 Dragons - just make sure they are majestic-looking and not dull, tired or worse, faded. Everyone can 'tumpang' the luck of the Dragon but if you are a Rooster-born or a Rat-born, it would be even better as the Dragon is the 'Secret Friend' of the Rooster and one of the allies of the Rat. Display a handsome-looking Rooster or Rat figurine gazing on the 9 Dragons plaque to maximize tapping into your good luck!! 9 Dragon Plaques can be hung up in any direction but best facing the front door to draw-in-the-wealth or behind your chair to lend you powerful support!
