In this series we are exploring Yang abode (modify to be a Yin abode instead) of Tycoons in Bolehland. We will not mention who they are by names but roughly you are able to guess the rest. Many of the photos had been blurred on purpose even with the locations of these lavish mansions befitting the Emperors, will not be shown for reason of privacy and safety. These articles only reflect on some studies we had made, just liked with Yin FengShui. We knew who are his FengShui masters but we shall not disclose here. This article is written with a heavy intonation of the application of FengShui as an art and not the person or the Yang abode itself. It does not in any way whatsoever reflect the FengShui analysis of the place in totality but a mere fragments sufficient enough to spur provocative discourse among the learned practitioners and connoisseurs as well. If you find this writing disturbing, please refrain from reading. The blogger reserve the rights to change any parts of this writing accordingly, if there is any factual error, as and may be required, from time to time.
Continue from Tycoon Li’s FengShui story, we are proud to also tell a tale of his Yin FengShui story… As you can see, designing an ancestral shrine is also part of our forte. We designed his ancestral shrine based on a set of FengShui criteria sets by his FengShui master that we shall not disclose. We did the architectural part of it notwithstanding the fact that our fee was not paid in full, just liked how it was claimed that Donald Trump did not pay his Architect as well. The good thing is as what people say, since this ancestral shrine is occupied by his entire clan, his ancestral now, owe us big time… A debt that his entire ancestral needs to pay! That we will leave it to the karmic debt collectors to do their work…
ANCESTRAL SHRINE 祠堂
The Wikipedia define an ancestral shrine, hall or temple 祠堂, also called lineage temple, is a Chinese temple dedicated to deified ancestors and progenitors of surname lineages or families in the Chinese traditional religion. Ancestral temples are closely linked to Confucian culture and the emphasis that it places on filial piety. A common central feature of the ancestral temples are the ancestral tablets that embody the ancestral spirits. The ancestral tablets are typically arranged by seniority of the ancestors. Altars and other ritual objects such as incense burners are also common fixtures. Ancestors and gods can also be represented by statues. The temples are used for collective rituals and festivals in honor of the ancestors but also for other family- and community-related functions such as weddings and funerals. Sometimes, they serve wider community functions such as meetings and local elections.
Unlike the traditional type that you may find in China, as those that was designed and FengShui(ed) by Yang YunSong in GanZhou, this one is a rather modern interpretation. Gone are the intricate ornaments in lieu of just post and beam concrete and mortar construction. However, the spatial planning still remain as a Si HeYuan 四合院 configuration very similar to Tycoon Li’s house. It has only a single courtyard not conforming to the technique of Three Gods Water Method 三神水法. This is an up most important consideration dealing with the FengShui design of the internal water courses within the ancestral shrine. It is almost similar to how the water management within the internal burial chamber. If you Google Three Gods Water Method 三神水法, you will come to term with many interpretations…
In this Bolehland case, the Ancestral Temple was built in a pretext of an up sized Mansion within the housing neighborhood. So, planning and building permit is very difficult to get if it was done so as an Ancestral Temple per se. This is called, Creative Advocacy.
THREE GODS WATER METHOD 三神水法
According to one HongKong practitioner Master Jiang JingChuan 江靜川, through his travelogue to SanLiau 三僚 investigating Guan Clan Ancestral Shrine 管氏宗祠, he has demonstrated with impeccable Cantonese explanation, the application of a technique called Three Gods Water Method 三神水法 (3GWM). The 3 Gods referred to as Big God 大神, Middle God 中神 and Small God 小神. These God terminology referred to the point of water exiting. Therefore you have the term – Small God exiting Middle God 小神出中神 then Middle God exiting Big God 中神出大神. These 2 terms are basically referring to the correlation of water flow between the inner court 内堂 to the outer court 外堂. In the common Si HeYuan 四合院 configuration, the two inner court 内堂 and the outer court 外堂 punctuated the interior spaces into three approaches that are called Jin 進. The ancestral tablets are usually located at the 3rd approaches. The common configuration shall be Small God exiting Middle God 小神出中神 then Middle God exiting Big God 中神出大神.
However, in this instances of Guan Clan Ancestral Shrine 管氏宗祠, because it was measured siting Xun 巽 facing Qian 乾, according to the Three Gods Water Method 三神水法 (3GWM), it states that it shall be Big God Facing 大神向. Therefore water shall be discharged from the Big God exiting Middle God 大神出中神, through the water release valve within the inner court 内堂 located at Ren 壬 (中神) connect to the outer court 外堂. From this outer court 外堂, water shall be discharged from the Middle God exiting Small God 中神出小神 and the water release valve within the outer court 外堂 located at Shen 申 (小神). From Shen 申 water shall be discharged through the Main Door location at Qian 乾, connecting to the external land form. This is termed Water from the 4 directions returned to its source 四水回归. As to why these Qian 乾 (大神) Ren 壬 (中神) 申 (小神) are interconnected, it shall be for us to know and you to find out.
The late Li DingXin, the grandmaster of YangGong GuFa FengShui has this to say…
This ancestral shrine is located at a good landform embraced from all sides facing a table mountain. Water exiting throughout Si 巳, Wu 午 and Wei 未. Landform wise is above average. However, a turn of event happened that Tycoon Li and his FengShui master were in sour term due largely to unpaid FengShui fees that he owed the FengShui master. Not only did he owed his architect, he also owed his FengShui master, big time. As a result, he is of the opinion that since his house has been FengShui(ed) it is only logical to set up the same structure as his house! Meaning you don’t have to pay twice for the same FengShui formation. What a brilliant idea! As a result this ancestral shrine sits fire structure. Exactly the same brief given to his architect to design this very ancestral shrine. How the FengShui of this shrine is everyone guesses… You let us know.
Not every Tycoon conduct their business fairly and generously. Notwithstanding their shrewd natures, would you want to be the FengShui master for the Tycoon just to earn some quick bucks? Why not? Just give him some shitty stuff and you are laughing your way to the banks.
I read somewhere that you have no right to muddle in someone else karma or else you will suffer the consequences. FengShui masters are not exclusive to this cardinal rule. This sorts of warnings has been lambasted by many people who feels that they know the working mechanism of karma better than others. Some go to profess some kind of method called – the equilibrium exchange that simply means you sin and you neutralize your sin by doing something noble. Very interesting to find all kinds of people in this industry… Speaking about karmic retribution, especially for the FengShui master, why do you see most of the famous one ended up doing spiritual healing instead, with many ended up to adorn the monk’s robe or rather pretend to be adorning the monk’s robe?
Years ago, we did highlight that there are the following outcomes for FengShui practitioners. What are these outcomes?
Of which category do you falls into? No worry, you only need to answer sincerely to yourself. Not us… and stop pretending one knows the inner working of karma. For details check this term called Acinteyya - Acintita Sutta, Anguttara Nikaya 4.77.
In this series we are exploring Yang abode of Tycoons in Bolehland. We will not mention who they are by names but roughly you are able to guess the rest. Many of the photos had been blurred on purpose even with the locations of these lavish mansions befitting the Emperors, will not be shown for reason of privacy and safety.

HongKong FeiXing Master Li Kui-Ming (李居明) needs very little introduction. He hits some sense in most of our FengShui discourse especially so to the layman. One statement that he made was that – do you know why most of the poor remains poor and the rich remains rich? If you ask the poor to shift out from their current home due to bad FengShui, they most likely not able to do it. Therefore they are poor. But, when you ask the rich to move out of the current house for a better FengShui house somewhere, they would do it without giving a second thought! Therefore, they are rich! So, really don’t even think of doing FengShui or even engaging FengShui master for an advice, if you are poor. Don’t even think of spending your hard earned money in courses liked – Millionaire mind through FengShui or Getting rich with FengShui if you are poor! It simply cannot make magic for the poor… but for the rich and about to be wealthy, yes indeed – Good FengShui complements you because you will make the changes for the sake of getting richer… well, not necessary greedier. That include the magic techniques of ShengJi and the other bullshit stuffs.
Master Li has also a secret to share that, if you desperately needs to know what a good FengShui for the rich, go and live with the rich people… Their luck cannot be that bad after all and even how bad their FengShui could turn out to be, they can never be worse off than those poor people living in poor and low cost neighborhood. By the same token, even if you need to pay hefty rent to stay in a “dog house” within the rich neighborhood, do so and that is his secret of getting rich and famous, as can be witnessed today. Better, don’t even think of becoming a FengShui master if you cannot afford to live lavishly, as your lifestyles portray your competency of your skills. This is the epitome of what they called, charity begins at home… prosper thyself before others. Because of this paradigm that sounds so true, some Bolehland Conmasters take the opportunity to bring students to measure old graves, especially old rich man’s graves including their homes, believing it is Great FengShui!
Well, Master Li is not alone in such thinking. In some time ago when YCH is still kicking, the junior FengShui celebrity also did that with a company of his good buddies. See, what they are today, with the exception of a few that couldn’t made it up to the bar! Super rich with abundant opportunities to “advice” property developers… Imagine, how poor could their clientele be? With rich client instead of the poor, they always have good track records to showcase that their FengShui works! That is because, If you ask the poor to shift out from their current home, they most likely not able to do it. Therefore they are poor. But, when you ask the rich to move out of the current house for a better FengShui house somewhere, they would do it without giving a second thought! Therefore, they are rich! Therefore, it is really an idiot to think that Yang YunSong is also known as the savior of the poor. This is blasphemy! He should be known as the savior of the rich! By the way, the junior FengShui celebrity proud and arrogantly reflect such of his masters that they are a bunch of theorists who can quote anything offhand but when come to use FengShui to prosper themselves, see they still live like wage earners… Assuming this logic is correct, let’s look at a case in Bolehland…
TYCOON LI’S FENGSHUI STORY
(First published in Yifengshui 20092012)
Tycoon Li has an illustrated lifestyle. He does not need any of the royal decorum such as Dato, Tansri, Tun and so forth. He employs people with such decorum to run his work. He has not even an O-level education. His life is liked a modern day emperor which will put any of the “cow-gate” minister into envy. Strangely, he is also a strong believer of FengShui. He spent a fortune to engage a master from the mainland. Besides traveling in first class, Tycoon Li displayed his baroque connections with mayors and other politically connected good friends, to have their pictures taken while the master's stay in Bolehland.
[Postscript: Tycoon Li is known of the following characteristics. He owns 2 public listed companies and counting. He was declared a bankrupt but a very hardworking chap. He loves sports and luxury cars, by same token, he has many mistresses to his collection. He has about 21 children, many of them are grownups professionals and still counting... He shuns limelight and only work behind the veil. He is quite a notorious businessman of all trades and he preferred the term, shrewd businessman instead.]
Of all his advises, one became prominent. He said, Tycoon Li would only be prosperous if his empire is managed by people with surname Li. As a result, he uses his family to run his business. But Tycoon, liked him, needs proxies to do his camouflage in Bolehland. True blood to the idea of One Bolehland, he has Indian lawyers and Malay administrators to run his business, but none of them are Li. This is a problem. One good friend of his suggested to him, well that is not the problem at all. All is needed is to use their Chinese Name instead. So, the next morning, we see Dato MangGa Li Singh and Dato Li-zal Abihla clocking-in.
The moral of the story is name selections beside BaZi, plays a significant role in one’s destiny. Why not change your name and see how true it is? Besides that let’s also look at his background…
THE WEALTHY CHINAMAN’S HOUSE
(First published in Yifengshui 18042010)
Lately was invited to audit a typical wealthy China man's House. It was designed with the SanFen SanHe 三分三合 principles in mind and a SiHeYuan house 四合院 typology [for detail read davidyek.com/critics/traditional-chinese-architecture-modular-house. It has an internal court opens up to the sky. Where would the centre of the house be? The internal courts will open up to another 3 sided entrances with three different doors. How would a Flying Star chart be? The more challenging piece is the water flow which are so diverse and subtle. So, is the location of the water via its aquarium in relation to the house proper?
The external pose some physically challenging Sha with the green dragon holdings sword 青龍論劍, as above the telecommunication structure with water falls features at the bottom, located at GenYin double mountain. House sitting Fire Structure with incoming at Yin and water exiting at Wu. That is significantly enough to tell the story as to why this wealthy China man has unresolved issues, the moment he shifted to this very new house, inclusive of the demised of his beloved mother whom was a healthy woman at the age of 80+ prior of moving into this mansion, in the month of Xu, year of Zi.
On a XuanKong level, although it is still considered a new house, there are apparently structural cracks at the skylights directly at the main door at the Qian sector. What does it means? If divination is done at the month of Chen, what does it portends? We will reserve more for the Private Blog, meanwhile as pointer, all of the sudden, we were told that XuanKong FlyingStar, of which the method expounded by Shen JuReng is a flawed methodology based on the following conclusions: -
Even with these above hypothesis, it is cumbersome to even superimpose the FlyingStar chart into the house plan of a huge mansion with multiple rooms and doors. Thus, it is a shame to learn that in the West, such methodology is still taught as a valid FengShui methodology as one dilemma is when we apply FlyingStar as an application, we forgot that, as with all valid system of FengShui, it has a body as principle to start with, but where is the body for FlyingStar?
[Postscript: Coincidentally, Tycoon Li’s mansion was designed to fulfil the SiHeYuan house 四合院 typology. In contrast of popular believe a SiHeYuan house 四合院 typology may not necessary means good FengShui… and we have another case as in Bolehland, read davidyek.com/yifengshui/-the-death-and-emptiness-of-zhang-bishis-mansion]
6. Unfortunately, this master from China that Tycoon Li has engaged is a Shen's WuChang Pai Flying Star practitioner.

FENGSHUI CANOPY 天篷
A FengShui canopy In Sydney, the Star City Casino has made headlines when the project commenced with designing and relocating the new glazed facade ‘front door’, the entrance of the Casino reoriented to face the harbour as well as the construction of a 48 metre glass façade. This was followed by work on enhanced gaming areas, refurbishment and extension of the retail arcade and a new five-star hotel -The Darling. The 12 level, 171 room The Darling, the first five Star hotel to be built in Sydney in the past 10 years.
In Sydney, the Star City Casino has added a "FengShui canopy" as part of a $760 million redevelopment. In another article, it states that “Justin Brooks says the project's engineers and designers, Yuanda, employed a FengShui expert to sign off on the canopy before it was built at TripleNine’s purpose-hired workshop”. It costs, $1.4 million and a tagline – “While the elements of FengShui can’t be guaranteed to produce financial fortune in The Star’s casinos, the stainless steel canopy is certain to maintain its appeal for decades to come.”, as quoted by Australian Stainless, issue 52.
Guess who is the FengShui expert? In howardchoy.wordpress.com it states that "Harbour-side facade of the new Star Hotel and Casino in Sydney Australia, open in September 2011. We (ar-qi-tektur Berlin) worked as the FengShui consultants for this project". Congratulation Howard…
How is the Star Casino been doing lately? It was reported that, “VIP Asian gamblers playing their favoured game of baccarat and placing bets of up to $500,000 a hand, beat the house in the first half of 2016, stripping The Star of nearly $80 million in profits. Chief executive Matt Bekier said it was simply bad luck for the casino operator and he was confident the house would get back to winning ways.”, quoted smh.com.au. Wealth leakages? How can that be with the FengShui canopy? Simply mind boggling after spending $1.4 million with a FengShui expert to sign off…
WEALTH LEAKING SHA FORMATION 漏財煞
The building is tapping into a Yang formation – simply a Big Mistake. The newly minted glass façade in nine stars formation of water star, representing wealth simply do not means anything. With a huge lobby and the escalators that simply escalates the draining of wealth into the bay. That is the most significant Qi leakages you can find. It is a simple landform 101 theory, nothing complicated. Just don’t quite understand how a FengShui expert would sign off such as his masterpiece? Simply mind boggling after spending $1.4 million with a FengShui expert to sign off… By the way, can anyone explain how the FengShui canopy helps to contain Qi in this instances would? Any “Hua Jie” 化解, “lioajie” 了解, “fenjie” 分解 or correlative thinking apply to such?
WITHOUT THE BLACK TURTLE - 29022012
Knew of a Mall in KL which used to suffer from low traffic. The owner flew in a master from HongKong with the fee of USD100,000. Yes, not only Taiwanese master can do the trick. All that he has suggested was to locate a retail unit in front of the main entrance facing the huge car park. The rest was history. The anchor tenant changes hand with a big name. Traffic increased by many folds. New extension was required for the new wing as the current threshold is maximized. What a miracle! A closer investigation revealed that the YinYang is in order. The spirits have arrived at the correct location. Speaking in terms of DaGua, it is said to be YiGua ChunChing 一卦純清, minus the door tilting and fighting SanSha, definitely. Want to know more? Postscript: Where is the Green Dragon, White Tiger and more importantly, Black Turtle? Is it a fallacy that all building must have a solid mountain as its back to fulfil the 4 guardians paying attention principles? Think about it...
THIS MALL FAILS BIG TIME, WHY? - 22012014
Award winning architecture. Big time FengShui failure. Why?
1. Cutting Feet
2. Wrong Entrance
3. Pulling Nose
Need XKDG or YangGong Fa to verify? No need la.....
TROPIKA MENIFESTO - 22052012
This is a Mall straddle between the NKVE highways, designed to be a stop over whenever commuters are stuck in the peak hour traffic jam. Good in theory but since its inception, it suffers from lack of human traffic just like the other case of Re-Publika. Undergone some makeover especially on the main entrance. Nothing extraordinary, besides crafting of the entrance, a row of water features were added and believed it, it gets better by the day, although Qi distributions on the internal still far from ideal compared to the suburb Mall, we talked about previously. Yes blame it to the strong ShaQi emitting from the highways. Imagine, the entire fate of the mall depends on the main door but in many cases, the corrective measures does not involve door tilting. Just a rectification of the immediate bright hall would do justice.
Whoever master that come to tell you that there is such thing called LuanTou 巒頭 school and LiQi 理氣 school, they confirmed to know nuts about FengShui. Both SanHe and SanYuan have their very own unique method for LuanTou 巒頭 and LiQi 理氣. This very phrase is taken from the preface of Snow Heart Classic 《雪心赋》. A typical doctrine under the lineage of 蝨母仙. Think about it...
One FengShui connoisseur from Vietnam shared a murder case as his basis of XuanKong analysis based on the school of WuChang Pai 無常派. With unfortunate cases like this, it is highly unlikely to do a prediction based on whatever LoShu chart we have. The most we could only do a post-diction, see if it does correspond to the numbers in the LoShu chart, the WuChang 無常 way…
FAN FUYIN 反伏吟
According to the treatise of WuChang Pai 無常派, a sudden death event occurred in a family is highlighted via what is probably known as FuYin 伏吟 and FanYin 反吟 within the LoShu chart. Yin 吟 is siren, ought to have sounded in giving a life and death warning to the inhabitants.
FuYin can be understood as Repeated Siren, it is liken to someone repeating the same warning to you again and again in an annoying manner and it is considered to be greatly inauspicious. That happens when the mountain or facing star in the middle is the 5 Yellow. The numbers may repeat the flying pattern of the LuoShu numbers in any palace.
FanYin 反吟 is short for Fan FuYin 反伏吟 or Opposite to Repeated Siren. Some teacher takes this as auspicious because it is supposed to be the reverse of FuYin. However, it is truly inauspicious because in any palace the numbers (Mountain or Facing number with the Luoshu number) added up to 10 and this happens when the Mountain or Facing star in the middle is the 5 Yellow. Beyond a superficial level, you will also see that it don’t make sense at all, as a combination of 10 should always be beneficial, but why not for this instances? What is the catch? The caveat is in this term - Fan FuYin 反伏吟 whereby when a FuYin occurred, it may also come together with its reversal, thus its double whammy. It doesn’t really make sense in terms of the stars but it truly make sense in terms of DaGua.
FuYin 伏吟 and FanYin 反吟 usually denotes deathly events and if the structure is not timely or broken and does in any manner conform to the natal chart, its malignant effects are great. In many books on this subject, the most fear after FuYin 伏吟 and FanYin 反吟 is the facing, because the Qi mouth of a house is usually located at the facing. However, as the saying goes, water governs wealth, mountain governs health, it cannot deny that an occurrence of FuYin 伏吟 or FanYin 反吟 at the sitting instead of facing, gives the more detrimental effects to the inhabitants in terms of health matter.
FAN FUYIN APPLICATION
THE LITMUS TEST - CASE FACT
A murder case, happened in North Vietnam at early morning 24th September 2016. The house was built and moved-in in 2015. The house measured sitting Yin facing Shen - 243 degrees.
Upon moving in: -
Googlemaps revealed that the location is far from superior as it is located within the basin known in geography as the island of the ox-bow. Landform liked this has very little Qi, thus a broken structure. Its location having rivers at both sides, with the rear river closest indicating the front may have been higher with the back low. In XuanKong 4 structures this is known as backward riding the dragon or up the mountain down the water structure, where the sitting star may not be that strong after all.
PAILONG AIXING 排龍挨星
The house was built and moved-in period 8. A period 8 chart with sitting Yin and facing Shen is constructed. The facing palace comprises of the period star 5, facing star 2# and sitting star 8#. 2#-8# combination 10 at facing. Wouldn’t such be great? Unfortunately, this natal chart of the house also called, arranging the dragon 排龍 of the house has nothing to reveal as it has no FuYin. Better still, sitting star 8# that is timely meeting facing star 2# that is untimely will violate the entire benevolent of the timely star? Mind boggling… Perhaps, the sitting timely star 8# arriving at the facing violate the cardinal rule that the “mountain dragon god shall not go down the river, 山上龍神不下水，水里龍神不上山, 青囊序，Mountain on top Dragon God don’t come down to water, Water within Dragon God don’t go up the mountain, (QingNan Xu). Therefore, the timely 8# sitting star has been violated and rendered useless…
When we plot in the annual 2016 star - #2 arriving at the centre, appear before us is a FuYin 伏吟 chart. The annual star and sitting star are in FuYin 伏吟 formation for all the 9 palaces. We shall check if indeed it is a FuYin 伏吟 formation at the facing.
There is a second test to see if indeed it is a real FanYin 反吟. This is through AiXing 挨星. Facing has 8#-8# Gen WeiShan 艮为山 Gua. Based on Gen WeiShan 艮为山 Gua, we have Dui WeiZe Gua 兑为泽 Gua as its FanYin Gua and Zhen WeiLei Gua 震为雷 as its FuYin Gua. Given house measured sitting Yin facing Shen - 243 degrees, none of the AiXing 挨星 falls within the FanYin nor FuYin. Yet, there are people killed! The above said description failed the litmus test… miserably.
ONE ROOM ONE TAIJI 一物一太極
Perhaps, we may look at the individual room itself before we come to any conclusion…
ON THE OTHER HAND
The house measured sitting Yin facing Shen - 243 degrees are very close to a small DE under the 72D rings based on YangGong methodology. It already foretell issues related to bloodshed. A good theory, must consistently without failed proved to show result even by the method of reverse engineering. In this instances, it has showcased that FanFu Yin can only be applied to one room, one TaiJi applications. Beyond that it seems that the theory faulted in many areas. This is only one attempt based on a popular known so called WuChang Pai 無常派 applications. How about the rest of the XuanKong derivatives such as MiaoPai 妙派 and so forth?
