It was fun participating in a BaZi pop-quiz organized by JLim in the now ‘reborn’ fivearts.info forum… In this challenge, JLim asked;
“Today is Valentine's day. Let's have a quiz about love... and separation. Choose when this lady married and then quickly divorced; 2007 Ding Hai, 2009 Ji Chou, 2011 Xin Mao, 2013 Gui Si, 2015 Yi Wei. Please choose one year only, and your reasoning using any method (Bazi, ZWDS, Liu Yao, QMDJ, Meihua, Tarot, Mahjong divination etc.). +6 karma points for the correct answer with reasoning. A simple reasoning will do. No karma point for correct answer but without reasoning at all. The Chinese hour is correct with or without adjustment to solar time. I will announce the answer after at least 15 people participate. But I will only send my Bazi analysis by pm to those who participate.”
True enough, none of the 15 participants participated are BIG NAMES, liked – “You Know Who…”. Those participated are all small fries including JayTee. The Big Names have reputation to keep, imagine what if they answer wrongly? For the small fries liked JayTee, it is a good opportunity to test out their wits and to make sure that they are confident enough to just give – one answer, without having to revise their answer at one go… You just cannot simply say, maybe… might be… could be… in real audits. You have to know your arts well minus the guessing games. This challenge is even more interesting because, JLim wanted the participant to write down, how do they derive their decision… OMG… you must read the commentary as it is the most intriguing dynamics among the various arts on display from the so commonly known ZiPing to ‘No Name’ divination techniques all in one go – Superb! Yet, none of the 15 participants, I presumed, would have known who this BaZi chart belongs to…
Later, JLim broke the news by saying;
“The answer is 2011 XinMao. She married and divorced in the same year! Thank you to quiz participants! Her husband was a policeman, who loved to gamble. He gambled a lot of their money and lost everything. Because of this, they got into a huge fight and divorced. As of end of 2015, she was still single. I see that she will marry twice in her life. More Bazi details on how to see wealth loss, her marriage and divorce later through PM.”
Dawn upon the participants that only 4 out of the 15 make the correct predictions. Among these 4 are the so common technique of ZiPing BaZi served raw – no acrobatic pictorial method or something similar… Who says ZiPing BaZi cannot use? The aftermath was a series of self-reflections and soul searching and one in particular, caught our attention;
“The answer is right there! Mao clashes with Subject You and at the same time combines with the Object Xu. Very straight forward, yet is unseen. It is so much easier to read the hexagram when you know the answer eh?”
So, it does really make more sense with post-diction instead of pre-diction, right? That’s life… That is the reason why many BaZi teachers love to use post-diction of known celebrities to showcase their skills. It is simply very exciting when you work backward to narrow down to an observation. Only good teacher would do a life expose of all his/her students without prior notice in class to be testified by the students themselves… If your teacher don’t do that, you better run away far-far…
In fact, the good old fashioned, ZiPing BaZi has not really lost its teeth… Someone did say;
“There are many-many BaZi theories around.
The one used most often is referring to the month as the anchor.
Another theory refers to the month for structure only and not for strength.
Another refers to heaven, earth and man. Meaning calculated using all the 8 palaces.
The least well known theory refers to resources and resources only, nothing else…”
You can see, there are many ways to skin the cat… Yet, how many can it be used? That is the Question?
THE ZIPING DYNAMICS
Assuming that it is not born in season, it is rendered a weak chart, favouring resource and self. Here we determined the strength of the Day Stem to be in consistent with modern ZiPing approach.
Fast forward, narrow down to the spouse star, high possibility is when the Xin辛 is protruding. Why we say, Xin辛 as the spouse star instead of the officer star? Someone did say, “Wei and BingXu are Spouse Stars, while Wu is Spouse Palace.” This is one problem with ZiPing… What exactly is what?
Bing丙 is the officer star to Geng 庚. The Home Palace have Wei未 and Wu午 combination. Will that form fire? Mind you there is a constant clash between Chou丑 and Wei未, how to combine? Different school, different stroke again…
Assuming it does not, this Geng 庚 is still sitting on her officer Wu午. Is this officer官 star favourable to Geng 庚? Again this come to the question of Officer and Killing 官杀, different school, different stroke…
Someone suggests, “Mao combines to move Wei, so marriage occurred.” Look at this carefully, Mao卯 combine with Xu戌 also forming fire. Will it transform? Which season do we look into? Different school, different stroke… Will Wei未 combine after being clashed by Chou丑?
Someone suggests, “Xin as Rob Wealth is inauspicious in this chart.” Look at this carefully again… How can Xin辛 be an unfavourable god to a weak Geng 庚? Isn’t a weak chart favours Self and Resource?
Maybe this is the reason, “The chart works by Geng combining with Yi, but Xin clashing Yi is inauspicious, leading to wealth loss.” Look at this extreme carefully… How do Geng庚 combine with Yi乙 when it is so far apart? Really, cannot figure this out…
The final straw, “The divorce happened in LP Bing Xu, because this LP is the "arrival" of Xu to punish Wei and Mao AP also combines to trigger Xu.”, Look at this extreme carefully… XinMao 辛卯 cannot just come and combine away without negotiating with BingXu 丙戌. Don’t even know if such has already been activated yet… Again, different school, different stroke…
THE IMAGERY DYNAMICS
GengWu 庚午 lady as was described by one website – “… the KING maker. Geng the raw iron is useless when it is not forge, with Ding fire, it forge itself into Axe - a tool that know no fear. Geng the most vicious sitting on Ding its very own Direct Officer which is the cardinal force. This give it the ability to be righteous. Ding fire shine the clear path in times of darkness, it’s the very fire that remove fear, remove all doubt. GengWu has a resilient personality. They get thing done quickly and swift. Ding give them clear sight and detail while still being elegant like the night star in a clear sky.”
When Bing meet Xin – “Bing 丙 Fire + Xin 辛 Metal = Water. Water epitomized being stray and betrayal. Bing 丙 Fire is passion while Xin 辛 Metal is beauty, over indulgence in woman, wine & music. Chinese has a saying that see money (Xin) turn into Water 见财化水. Fire countering metal. Bing丙 Fire, pictorially liked a Sun, now will literally melting away the small Xin 辛 Metal.” We seriously don’t know how could that be? The Sun only make the metal shines brighter! “In exchange the transformation produce Wisdom (Water). Transformation only happen in the month of Chen (辰) Dragon, Shen (申) Monkey, Hai (亥) Pig & Zi (子) Rat.”
In conclusion, she is hype out being get thing done quickly and swift and marrying the guy. Only to find that see money (Xin) turn into Water 见财化水. Trouble. She took the noble step as Geng the raw iron is useless when it is not forge, with Ding fire, it forge itself into Axe - a tool that know no fear. She divorce him. End of story…

CLICK HERE FOR DETAIL
Let’s contemplate on one of this statement –
USEFUL GOD 用神 USEFUL?
In contemporary BaZi 八字, the emphasis is in the strength 强弱 of the Day Stem 日主元神. A strong or weak chart will determined the Useful God 用神. This Useful God 用神 is naturally the element favourable to the chart. A weak chart needs to be strengthened and a strong chart needs to be weakened. The elements that strengthened the weak chart or weaken the strong chart are called Favourable God 吉神 while the reverse are called Unfavourable God 忌神. It is useful when you know how to determine the strength 强弱 of the Day Stem 日主元神. This could pose a lot of challenges especially with different schools holding different points of view about many other miscellaneous criteria, supposing the rule of combination and transformations, the rule on earth seasons and so forth… They never seem to agree with one another often resulted in cases liked, strong but not so strong, weak but not so weak…
In classical approach, the emphasis is on the Useful God 用神, not the Day Stem 日主元神. This Useful God 用神 is the God in-command 用事之神, determined by the Month Commander月令. It is not necessarily to be your Favourable God 吉神, as it could just be an Unfavourable God 忌神 as well. Therefore, the traditional approaches boil down to the quality of the Useful God 用神. These qualities are known as Having Affection 有情 or Having Strength 有力. Having Affection 有情 means the Useful God 用神 is being used the appropriate ways and Having Strength 有力 means the Useful God 用神 is being used to strengthen the Day Stem 日主元神. They mean different things altogether. It is useful when you know how to use the Useful God 用神 in the manner of Having Affection 有情 or Having Strength 有力 in a way that Favourable God 吉神 are supported and protected, Unfavourable God 忌神 are restraint and transformed.
SUCH A THING AS USEFUL GOD 用神?
Traditionally, useful God 用神 is derived from the Month Branch that is commonly known as a Month Commander月令. A branch may concealed more than one elements. The Commanding God 用事之神 must be the most dominant element hidden within the Month Branch. This is to qualify as the Commanding God 用事之神 of a particular Solar Term. How to decide on the most dominant element is again, different school different stroke… This Month Branch may also subject to movement and stillness 动静. As to how it move and kept still 动静 is again, different school different stroke… This is a problem! Ultimately, there is a Useful God 用神 subject that one understand clearly as to how to identify the dominant element and determine its movement and stillness 动静.
Modern approach, useful God 用神 is derived from the strength of the Day Stem 强弱. This goes by the mantra of In-Season 挡候, In-Location 挡位 and In-Formation 挡局.These three factors that contributed to the Day Stem 日主元神 require the Useful God 用神 to arbitrate 扶抑, to medicate 病药 or to adjust 调候. There is a Useful God 用神 of different technique for different situation. Ultimately, reaching to a near perfect chart of CaiGuan Yin 财官印.
HOW MANY TIMES WHEN YOUR USEFUL GOD 用神 APPEAR AND YOUR LIFE GOT NO IMPROVEMENT?
This is a compounded question. First, how many times when your Useful God appear? Second, if it appears, why your life got no improvement?
Let’s attempt the first limb of the question. Useful God may appear many times, through the dynamic part of your BaZi – the Luck Pillar and the Annual Pillar. Assuming, that your useful god is fire. This year DingYou 丁酉 may bring about the fire Qi require. A number of Chinese Academies such as Money squeezing Academy of chinese metaphysics (MsAocm), may say that DingYou 丁酉 comes in after LiChun 3 February 2017, Friday 10:36pm. Therefore you suppose to bank in money during this day to activate the “丁”… Is that true?
We also need to ask when is the actual arrival of the Useful God 用神? One conventional way state that, the first half of the year is governed by Ding 丁 while the second half is governed by You 酉? Is that also true? When will the Ding丁 or the You 酉 have impact on you? Will the You 酉 TaiSui full-fledged force be impacted upon you on the Yin寅 month or the Si巳-You酉-Chou丑 month or the Chen辰 month? Many stroke, different outcome.
One method probably coined Qi Flow Method 氣流法 go as far as to measure the actual progresses or retrograde of these elements through various means such as star conjunctions, planetary movements and eclipses. In such case, even if the Ding丁 is observed, with the real absent of the fire Qi, will you still get to enjoy the fire Qi? Probably such gave the answer to the second limb of the question - even when your useful god appear why your life still got no improvement?

10 GODS PROFILE 十神
The Strength of the Day Stem tells you your natural behavioral weakness and strength.
Your Structure indicates your useful god – PRIMARY PROFILE
This tell you 2 things –
- Your most prominent character.
- Your most obvious inclination.
Used these to your advantages.
But, you still need to deal with your “Inner Devil” – weaknesses…
This is where your altered ego comes into play – SECONDARY PROFILE
Everybody is born with a main behaviour and many secondary behaviours. Life is complicated. Sometimes we are like an eagle, while other time a parrot or a peacock. These 10 characteristic stereotypes knowing their strength and weaknesses enable us to use them effectively at our disposal. This art is called – USING THE 10 GODS.
Let just assume you are the executioner type Vulture. Your positive set of value is this… and your weaknesses is this… You must altered your ego to be Resource and take the personality profile as an Owl to weaken your primary profile vulture. What installed as the positive attribute of the Owl will offset the negative value of the vulture. Resource grows you and weakened the Officer. This is the use of the SECONDARY PROFILE within you in the 10 Gods interplay.
When you grew up, you will tend to take upon another set of Behavioral Patterns. This is your PRIMARY PROFILE. It tells you 2 things namely, your most prominent character and your most obvious inclination. They are your natural self - your Ego. In BaZi jargon it is called your Structure. It is where your Useful God is to be found.
Useful God may be so useful but how do you use it to counter your dislikes and weaknesses? This is where you need to alter your Ego and use your SECONDARY PROFILE. In another words, use also your Unfavorable Gods by taking up other profiles. This is called mitigation. In BaZi jargon, you use the 10 Gods to your advantages through the art of WuXin ShengKe 五行生克法.
“There is no such thing as weak and strong chart in Bazi… Most importantly there is no such thing as positive and negative stars.”
... We will address this later ;-)
OLD STUFF LOOKS RELEVANT...
子孙平安 Blessed Generation - 23032009
We have seen how behavioral sciences are used to profile the potential candidates for the available vacancies. Yet, it is through a series of questionnaires, interviews and assumptions that the profiles are assigned to each and every candidate. The known psychological based profilers among others are DISC, Temperament, Personality Plus and others. We seek to rely on BaZi instead as a mechanism of profiling. Just the date of birth with the time of birth is sufficient to know the temperament as Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholic and Phlegmatic or even some may consider Supine, being the fifth temperament. More of the classifications can be derived from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Temperaments .
It is not going to be an easy task in looking at the ZiPing 10 gods to understand their intricate characteristic. It is worth the effort especially in times liked these; as it is to be provided FREE.

THE ALMANAC 通書
That is the common crap as quoted by the Wikipedia. In truth, TungShu 通書 has 2 versions during the dynastic period. One for the emperor’s household while the other the commoner. In the olden days, transportation is not as advanced as today. It takes a lot of effort to distribute TungShu to the vast population of the commoner and it became rather pragmatic to actually localized production of TungShu by the commoner and such has been vested upon the shoulder of a small number of families that were responsible to produce TungShu for the public. Therefore commoner’s TungShu production became a local enterprise.

WHAT IS INSIDE A COMMON TUNGSHU?

THE OTHER ARTS OF DIVINATION
WHAT IS INSIDE THE RED COVER TUNGSHU?
The Chinese Calendar 1 - What You Must Know
1. The first was known as TaiChu Li or the Calendar of the Great Beginning.
2. The second was known as SanTong Li or the Calendar of the Three Concordance.
3. The third was known as SiFen Li or the Calendar of the Four Remainders.
These are models based on a LuniSolar attempt or the combination of:-
1. Lunar – Calculation based on Lunation of the moon around the Earth.
2. Solar – Calculation based on Sun path in relation to Earth rotation commonly known as the Yellow Path.
Where both GanZhi and YiGua are used. In Chinese Metaphysics, both GanZhi and YiGua are equally important: -
1. SanHe – Emphasis on GanZi
2. SanYuan – Emphasis on YiGua
Are these systems measuring the same Qi? What sort of calendar does the system employ? Better, what are GanZhi and YiGua measuring to? If one look at the SYSTEM itself, starts from 1 WuQi, 2 Slices of YinYang, 3 Components of SanCai, 4 Seasons, 7 Luminaries, 8 Guas, 9 Stars, 10 Stems and all through 24 sub seasons and 30 pairs of NaYin to 64 Hexagrams. How would one consolidate such into a meaningful working model?
1. Has any of the basis of Yarrow Stalks Divination method has to do with calendric sciences?
2. Why would one group the 24 sub seasons into the group of three instead of two as commonly understood?
3. A trigram is made of 3 Yao (3 lines comprising the composition of solid or broken line). Why a Yang Yao (solid line) must take the value of 9 as opposed to Yin Yao (broken line) which take the value of 6 as the basis of measuring time? If these fundamentals are not sorted out, how would one understand the working mechanism of DaGua date selections and confronting SanSha? How would one understand the use of GuaYun and GuaQi? What are these units measuring to in the first instance?
The Chinese Calendar 2 - What Has Divination And Calendar Has In Common?
The Chinese Calendar 3 - Revisit HETU
“Therefore, it is stated that Heaven Numbers are 5, Earth Numbers are 5. 5 positions having obtained one another, each has a match. Heaven numbers 25, Earth numbers 30. Both heaven and earth numbers 55. This is that which having completed the alternations and transformations, sets in motion the Gui and Shen spirits.”
What it actually meant was:-
1. Heaven Numbers are 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 (Total 5 numbers)
2. Earth Numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 (Total 5 numbers)
3. Sum of Heaven Numbers: 1+3+5+7+9=25
4. Sum of Earth Numbers: 2+4+6+8+10=30
5. Total Sum of Heaven and Earth Numbers = 55
6. When it is correctly apply, Qi is in motion.
Such is apply, mainly in XuanKong methodology with a close relationship in the Chinese Metaphysics.
The Chinese Calendar 4 – Knowing the Year, Seasons and Days
The Chinese Calendar 5 - Ancient Time Piece
There is a reason that this portable ancient time piece is invented. Very useful for Yin FengShui Burial, Earth Breaking, Moving In and the sorts that related to date selections. Comprising of a Sundial and a Compass of 24 mountains resurrected by a back-piece to adjust according to the 24 seasonal nodes for solar casting, it is an expansive hand made tool, price around SGD400. Anyone interested may drop me a mail for bulk order. May even think of mass production using plastic casing. Come to think of it, when we are so accustomed to using the Solar Calendar to plot our Destiny Chart, what happened when someone said, it is more accurate if we use the Lunar Calendar instead? Well, then this very time piece will not be so important anymore. We need the water clock instead. By the same token, apart from issue relating to the intercalary, JieQi and Branches, the Lunar Calender is important for matters relating to the White Path of the Lunar Mansions as a contributory method. That is one reason why some old masters in HongKong is mocking about.
The Chinese Calendar 6 – HouQi, LiuJia and NaYin
THE SPRING OX CHART
THE ANNUAL NATAL CHART
Another FREAKING SERIOUS stuff - the TaiSui! Yes, grand mummy Big Sister called this Grand Duke Jupiter. Freaking serious, what the hack does Jupiter got to do with me? This planet is so damn HUGE that every where it goes, it sucks out Qi from its opposite directions... Yeh Babe! you read it correctly... the OPPOSITE direction. Face it, you will be in trouble! This year, the freaking planet is on the eastern side, so technically, the counter Jupiter effects would be on the western side... these locations will be fried liked a Turkey! If you want a way out please join us in the Secrets of Million Hairs in this coming Fraudulent Times... we will distribute the anti-TURKEY TALISMAN to you.
Some more FREAKING stuff - the SanSha, 3 Killings, now residing at eastern sector generally. Yes, grand mummy Big Sister will want you to buy her RHINO to cast away robbers, Medicine Buddha Mandala to expel sickness. However in the Secrets of Million Hairs in this coming Fraudulent Times... we just want you to install more security alarms and buy more health insurance is your house falls within these sectors.

“…#9-1, #3-2, #8-7 looks like combination of 10, 5 and 15 respectively. Can it be read like this?”
The answer is YES. Isn’t it strange that XuanKong Classics spell otherwise? It is very common practice to plot the annual chart and read it thereof according to the interpretation from the classics that spelt out the 81 combinations. So, if let say the general consensus is to assume, 7,2,3 and 5 stars are the malignant component, the next logical question is how to “cure” it? First, attempt to see if there is any possibility of combining these malignant stars. #9-1, #3-2 and #8-7 are already a form of combination. If the structure is supported, the malignant star has already been combined away. No need to do anything. Second, structural combination of a continuous space. #2-7, #4-9, #1-6, #3-8 are HeTu combination achievable by amalgamating 2 palaces as 1 structure. This called for repartitioning of internal layout. However logic it may be, but one cannot be renovating one house come every 12 months? Thus, it is impractical. Third, not to provoke the malignant star such as 7,2,3 and 5 by means of earth breaking, dragging of heavy furniture or drilling and the sort. If everything fails, then only attempt to put placebo FengShui into action liked, wind chime, calabash, crystal and the sort. Something is better than nothing as the saying goes. However, the wisest way is to rope in a competent practitioner who is able to put the useful god into action by just taking care of ONE core item. The rest of the malignant stars will be beneficial. Always remember Flying Star methodology or Purple White has gained popularity in space constrained area such as HongKong, Taiwan and Singapore for a reason none other than fast and result orientated. The real practitioner does not chase after stars. They chase after the Gods.

By looking at FengShui, not as a science but a paradigm, GuoPu has this to say, Earth is the mother of Qi, Qi is the mother of Water and when Qi moves, water moves and when Qi stops, water coagulates. This is what he called FengShui. We cannot observe Qi but the Khunian paradigm prescribed that we could observe an assumption, that Qi has the characteristic of water. By observing water, we could observe Qi. Qi movement has since become the sole criteria of FengShui evaluation, as in according to GuoPu. Therefore, the moon, the sun, the Coriolis Effect, Bernoulli Effect and the sort are all the integral part that effect Qi movements.
These enable Qi to be observable. It brings the observer the pattern cognition, as in forms, spaces, solids and voids. In FengShui, Qi flow becomes the first manner to acquire, failing so, it is called bad FengShui. The entire corpus of YangGong through his writing such as YuChe Jing, QingNan AoYou and TianYu Jing are but the textbook telling you the precise paradigm of acquiring Qi.
Qi appears as solidify or fluid. Solidify Qi is earth, taking forms of mountains and when it moves liked the mountain veins, they are called dragon. Solidify Qi seems to be moving, therefore, fluidity in nature. They are Yang but yet Yin. To receive such Qi, you ride on it. Yet, how do you ride when the “horse-back” is relatively moving? You never ride a dragon. Textbook solution, would warrant you to search for one that is “still” and not moving. You will never find one! The real art, after Qi flow is to understand stillness and movement. This is rarely taught…
Qi that is not solidify, fills the universe. Yet, the text tell us that it is liked water. This unit of Qi fills your lungs. It require a vessel to contain. We coined it as tapping Qi. Liked a human being, the body is the vessel, the mouth/nose is the receptacle to receive Qi. In a house, as in Zhai, the mansions, the four walls form the vessel and the main door, receptacle to receive Qi. Would the windows or any aperture be of the same as the main door? That you will have to find out for yourself. There is no different between people acquiring Qi, NaQi with a house acquiring Qi. Only you will find teachers in the west advocating that ChangQi or riding Qi is for earth Qi, ShouQi or receiving Qi is for Heaven Qi and NaQi, or acquiring Qi is for Human Qi. If that is true, body odour also becomes a unit measurement of Qi. Liked traditional Chinese medicine, heat and dampness become another domain that is also rarely taught…
SOME OLD THOUGHTS ON QI MOVEMENT
FengShui Basic - Locating A Succesful Retail Outlet
FengShui Basic - 8 Aspirations
FengShui Basic - To Move or Not Move
"It begins with movement; hardly can see a thing, when it comes to stillness, all begin to understand. When one sees stillness as the essential marvel, how may one knows that movement is the foundation?"
A competent practitioner would utilize an unfavorable sector to his advantages. A competent BaZi consultant would also use the negative gods. Beginners’ mistake is to equate the use of Eight Mansions with Flying Stars. These are two methods with different fundamentals. Eight Mansions stem from Early Heaven while Flying Stars stem from Later Heaven. Not surprising if someone were to asked, “What if the sector has a JueMing but yet a favorable 8 wealth star?”
Eight Mansions talked about Gua Qi, elemental relationship. Flying Stars talked about GuaXiang, imagery. The Classics state, “The Gua imagery is established on the basis of their meanings; understand the images and forget the words – the idea is clear of itself. The whole world delusively clings to the imagery; uses GuaQi and rise in levitation.” The elusive meaning of GuaQi remains the key, which many teachers refused to depart.
Evaluating internal spaces, GuaQi remains an important factor. What would be the reference for the interior? Such is called the YinYang boundary. It is the point to distribute the stars. The strangest thing is why must the reference be located at the center? Why must the Wedge be placed at the center? Why must one even smack the 9 Grids forcefully into the house plan as though there is a physical boundary between Qi? What if the physical demarcation of architectural walls differs from the 9 Grids? Why must there be even Grid Vs Wedge? Such reflects the lack of understanding in FengShui fundamentals.
The grid and wedge are simultaneously deployed. The wedge referred to the art of LiPan, establishing the LuoPan. The Grid is an aid of accessing Qi maps. While drawing up Qi maps and establishing the LuoPan became the integral part of a competent practitioner, many were not taught the proper way of doing such. To convince one that Qi moves as LoShu would not guarantee one’s application of eight mansions or FlyingStar is correct. The key is not with LoShu, but to understand how Qi spirals in 3 dimensions and work thereof. Such will work perfectly with whatever given architectural plans.
Only then, would the knowledge of stillness and movement work within the misconstrued Direct/Indirect Spirits, another malicious subject. In summary, Internal FengShui is all about the art of identifying internal Qi maps, activating, receiving or transforming through the various essentials of a Yang Dwelling.
Saying thus, the success rate is still within its external!
FengShui Basic - Specific Purpose In Generic
1. Family Harmony ranks priority
2. Health Improvement for the Elderly
3. Wealth opportunity for the Bread Winner
4. Academic achievement for the school going children
These became the so called “specific purpose” which may have been silent in the pretext of “good health and good wealth” generic needs. Saying thus nothing is deemed to have been cast in stone, as this is a living art, best demonstrated by the following example.
We audited a small family where the gentleman is living with his mum while his dad had passed away. So, we only have 2 variables to deal with, one, the bread earner and two, the elderly mother. The gentleman is single and working in a multinational company. Needless to say, opportunity for promotions and meeting the opposite sexes would automatically be the priority while for his mum, health improvement ranks supreme. At this juncture, we are able to narrow down to a specific purpose and with very simple alteration using the so called “kindergarten” 8 mansions, he was promoted. We also observed there is a better change in his attitude towards other which results in him attracting the opposite sexes. His mother, on the other hand, has less sleepless night and less worry. We could not believe such a simple method would bring about good results and more importantly his dad has a permanent place within his blessed home. When identifying water mouth became difficult, use Heaven Qi approach, as this art is a living art.
Residential FengShui is more challenging in that forms as compared to Commercial FengShui, where the bottom line is profitability. As we grew wiser in our practices, we noticed that a good practitioner is able to intervene in any given situation. He does not run away when situation does not present upon him an ideal situation such as what if the Killing Forces in the area is overly strong? Move away? What if he cannot afford to do so? What will be the better alternatives? Drop the case and ask him to look for other practitioners instead?
Any competent practitioners would have made mistake. More importantly, he must be humble enough to learn from it. The Chinese Ideal of first Destiny, second Luck, third FengShui, fourth Meritorious Deed and fifth Education had been greatly misunderstood. For example, Education is a reserved privilege for the male gender in the aristocratic Chinese community. Does it means to say, female is devoid a chance to improve on their Destinies, for not being given the opportunity for education? No, education in the simple Chinese nuance means learning from one’s mistake and takes step to improve oneself. This is the very basis of doing meritorious deed to oneself and others will naturally comes its way.
“The cosmos lies in one’s hand, the ten thousand transformations are born from oneself.”
FengShui Basic - Learning To Unlearn
“Swallowing saliva and acquiring breath are human actions; only when one knows the Way, one is able to form and transform, just liked in a Ding (tripod) there is no True Seed, liken to use water and fire to boil an empty pot”
So, when one fails to see result, we blame the method that was taught was incorrect and we fails to see that it is the reluctant of the teacher to pass on the “key”, for whatever reasons. It is only upon seeing and watching carefully of how a teacher executes his work in real life audit, would then one able to know the conditions for a method to work. Such will traditionally comes with a bucket load of insults and intimidations from being a coolie to someone holding the teacher’s bag and umbrella. In the modern context, it will be par on material gains which is nothing to be surprised of.
The complexities of residential FengShui is such that if nothing could be done to the Main Door and the Bedroom or even the Kitchen Stove such as a portable stove over a fixed stove so as to get a “perfect” XKDG hexagram, what else could be done? One friend from France suggested that to take a hammer to activate all the good SanSha points and at the same time digging all the relevant parts in the yard to challenge the 5 yellow. Such is not always the way.
Another case in example, a gentleman passed his prime and ended up retrenched with a family to feed. What would be the specific purpose in this case? Food on the table is the priority. Does one go about tilting doors, tables, stoves and maybe beds? This family has not enough money to do the necessary and one strange thing was even the bed was built-into the wall. A simple intervention of changing the joss urn made it possible for the gentlemen age 50 to be employed. Can such be considered simple achievement for a specific purpose?
A competent practitioner never stop learning and practicing. By practicing on the fields he learns something new and unlearns something old. Every case has its own set of challenges and limitations, if it is not carefully dealt with, it may haunt you forever. Yet, when you know that the FengShui methods you used, improve the lives of the many such as healing the sick, putting enough food on the dining table, getting childless couple to finally have children and helping your peers and students to have a decent promotions, the satisfactoriness of such meritorious deeds are far better than creating the number of millionaires.
Perhaps, such wisdom may appease our doubtful minds: -
"It begins with movement; hardly can see a thing, when it comes to stillness, all begin to understand. When one sees stillness as the essential marvel, how may one knows that movement is the foundation?"
FengShui Basic - The Alchemy of FengShui
Observing SanHe practitioner at work is thought provoking. He spends his time measuring every inch of the walls while a XKDG practitioner may just measure door. Wouldn’t these two diverse methods bore different results?
Chinese nuances may differ in its meaning of “sit” and “seat”. So the question of measuring the sitting of the house, door, et-cetera may eventually differ from that of measuring seating of the house, door, et-cetera. So, when we look at FlyingStar chart, do we consider sitting mountain as “seating” mountain instead? But, most importantly, how do you define a “seating mountain”?
Perhaps seating is confusing, let us investigate facing instead. Searching the internet for methods of establishing facing, one will be amazed that there are many ways to go about it, from the main door as facing to the main facade as facing. What if all the 4 facades are identical facing an empty land? I guess, that will be the nightmare for FlyingStar practitioners.
The onset is fundamentally simple. Each has its own Taiji. Before that, How to establish the Taiji spot? How Qi flows? The intricate part, how to receive Qi or acquiring Qi. Both differ depending on techniques. Worse of the lot is to believe that this element grows this element, If I am this element, then it grows me, this is call ShengQi! I call it BullShit!
Internal FengShui is similar to Internal Alchemy. Contemplate such: -
Jing (Essense), Qi (Energy) and Shen (Spirits) affect one another. When it follows the flow it forms the Coporeal Form; when they invert the flow, they generate the Elixir. The flow is the one begets two, two beget three, three beget the ten thousand things…inverting the flow, the ten thousand things return to the three, the three returns to the two and the two returns to the ultimate one. Those who know the way, look after their Coporeal Form, they nourish their corporeal form to refine their Essense, accumulates it and transmuted it into Energy, refining such to merge it into their Spirits to revert to Emptiness.
Now, the question is what is the Jing (Essense), Qi (Energy) and Shen (Spirits) of your living abode?
Let me start first with a harsh reality. No matter what anyone is saying - things are getting bad out there & they’re only going to get worse. See, the entire World has changed, however, we’re still believing in the old ways of doing things.
Here’s what we’re taught through the “OLD school of thoughts”
#1 - Go To School
#2 - Get a Job
#3 - Work Hard
#4 - Pay Your Taxes
#5 - Save Your Money
#6 - Get Out of Debt
#7 - Invest For The Long Term
#8 - Retire
Let me ask you something - does that REALLY sound like something you can do today and succeed?
This system can’t be further from the “truth”.
These are exactly the Battle Cries from Robert Kiyosaki, the author of Rich Dad, trying to brainwash everyone seeking to be the next millionaire. Even one of the Money squeezing Academy of Chinese metaphysics (MsAocm) in town echoed the same to hard sell their BaZi programme morph into some other forms beyond recognition… Wonder why don’t the master trainer make all his staffs to be millionaires and not having to work for him, before they are let go to promote his courses such as the Million-Hair Mind, Get Filthy-Rich with FengShui or How To Survive in Turbulent Times?
THE STRATIFIED SOCIETIES
When the Feudal system broke down in the era of Industrial Revolution, the Laissez-faire (free market) economy comes in as replacement. Capitalism takes its root by introducing the stratified society of one with Capital, the Bourgeois (the Landlord) and the one without Capital, the Proletariat (the Worker). The Feudal system did not just die there… it merely transform into something else – the Capitalist. Everyone works for the Capitalist. The Capitalist controls 90% of the world resources and the majority has less than 10%. This is where the term “modern slavery” comes into existence.
Kiyosaki merely resonate the fact that the majority were educated to think like the Proletariat (the Worker) and the Bourgeois (the Landlord) has a totally different mindset and game plan. This is very true. The entire mechanism and machinery from the cradle to the grave were designed to produce the Proletariat (the Worker) and not the Bourgeois (the Landlord). You only need one Queen Bee in the Hive, not more. Even one of the Money squeezing Academy of Chinese metaphysics (MsAocm) in town echoed the same to hard sell their BaZi programme morph into some other forms liked the Million-Hair Mind, Get Filthy-Rich with FengShui or How To Survive in Disturbing Times?
To resolve the injustice of the Capitalist controlling 90% of the world resources and the majority has less than 10%, a reverse system was introduced – called Communism. There should only be the State and the Proletariat (the Worker). By the same token, the State is but a reflection of the Bourgeois (the Landlord) and the Proletariat (the Worker) only controls less than 1% of the resources. Everything goes back to square one… just different terms and nothing new. That is where Communism failed.
Fast forward into the future, Information Revolution took over the Industrial Revolution. The world is getting smaller, things are moving faster, everything digital and games are changing by the second. The Information age will see the Plug-In (those with Info) and the Plug-Out (those without Info). The Plug-In or Plug-Out depends greatly on the level of relevancy in this stratified society. Facebook and Google has physical commodity to sell. Uber and Grab do not own any car but yet control the largest fleet of taxis in the world. Camera goes digital and Kodak has to go burst. Apple is trying to compress the entire digital world into paper thin apparatus. Banks go digitals with only a webpage on the screen. What these events trying to show are nothing new. Change is the only Constant. Obsolesces are the new world order. Bourgeois (the Landlord) and the Proletariat (the Worker) still exist but now take a different form.
The One who truly qualified to be the Bourgeois (the Landlord), if not by birth, shall be the one who offer their services nobody can deny. This is a parcel of the Blue Ocean strategy – creating relevance and to avoid obsolesces. Kiyosaki is trying to reinvent himself by selling this - creating relevance and to avoid obsolesces. Even one of the Money squeezing Academy of Chinese metaphysics (MsAocm) in town is doing just that! Morphing age-old Chinese Metaphysics into Hyper Modern Catch-Phrase Jargon – liked Art of the Sages?
THE ANCIENT CHINESE FORMULA 古老方法
- the Monarchy,
- the Officers,
- the Warriors,
- the Literati,
- the Merchants,
- the Artisans,
- the Farmers and
- the Commoners.
The Monarch arises as someone who fought and win the battle against all odds. Make no mistake that they resemble the most ruthless persona with greed and ambitions without remorse and empathy to build an empire. If they are made to be, they shall be from the Warrior class. The other class of Monarch, is born to be through hereditary. They too learn the art of survival from the very young age to be the most ruthless persona with greed and ambitions without remorse and empathy to inherit an empire. These are the inherent character of the Monarch – that is beyond reach by the commoners.
Today, everybody want to be a monarch by their own rights. Modern monarchs are tycoons, someone who is in control of the entire conglomerate of multi-national companies that hire thousands of workers having flagships properties all the world over. But how many tycoons are there compared to the rest of the population? Which country produced the most tycoons? How to be one?
The ancient sage came out with the following formulas, Knowledge 讀書, Deed 福德, Wind and Water 風水, Luck 運 and Fate 命. These 5 formulas are arranged with Fate being the first and Knowledge being the least important. In reality, they meant to be read upside down because they knew that not everyone is lucky enough to be born or fated to be an Emperor. So, you ought to work your way up…
WIND AND WATER 風水
3 APPLICATIONS IN THE MODERN WORLD 現代三要
The fact is the same… You need the majority of the Proletariat (the Worker) to serve the minority of the Bourgeois (the Landlord). No matter how you camouflage, the order of nature is the same… 道法自然. The fastest way to accomplish such is to ignore the followings…
THE 3 ABSTINENCE 三不做
1. No Affinity, Don't Do...
2. Against One's Conscience, Don't Do...
3. Destroying Other's FengShui, Don't Do...

Show Me The MONEY !!! - 21062010
This is gorgeous! I never knew that FengShui master has to “cari makan” among their students? I always thought that they are self sufficient with the endowment of the SanYuan of health, wealth and descendent? Perhaps, their services to their clients are just on the affinity basis and not so much of the “cari makan”?
Maybe I am wrong.
Just met up with an old friend from Singapore, one from the family of FengShui master turns Chinese Medicated Hall Entrepreneurs. They kept their practice and lineage only to their own family members. They engage commercial FengShui masters for “show”, especially during opening of their branches. You hardly know they knew their stuff because they don’t look Chinese enough to even hold a LouPan in their hands. Yup, I forgot to ask if they have application forms for me to enroll as indoor disciple. Shit! What a chance I missed!
Any more genuine masters who can turn me into a millionaire? Please stand up!
Ming Yi Of Boleh-Land – The Making Of The Millionaire Monk - 12092010
I gathered news that a Buddhist Monk from Penang has transformed from being a “poor” monk to a wealthy monk, thanks to the millionaire factory soon to be FengShui master. Now, he has luxury cars, bungalows and a huge retinue of followers whose donations are meant for his whimsical disposals. Congratulations to him, as he will soon to be following the footsteps of Singapore’s famous Venerable MingYi. The difference, maybe this time, it is from the Boleh-land instead of the Kiasu-land. Well, thanks to the good FengShui, I believed.
Somehow, I happened to bump onto this very wealthy monk prior to 2006. Although he is not wealthy then, he has a personal lay assistant accompanying him to study FengShui from one of the academy in town. I remember vividly blogging about it, as one seldom sees a monk in FengShui class. His demeanor is rather uncommon of a person leading a homeless life, such as eating Mc Donald’s after midday? What is used of FengShui to him? For once I believed he may use it for the benefits of others and from the recent news I gathered, I was proven wrong. I did not hear from him since.
I used to think that Buddhist monk leads a homeless life without the burden of material gains. They have the very basic necessities such as the robes, bowl, and some simple needle for stitching and small blade for shavings. They cannot even keep their food overnight and they are only allowed to consume solid food once a day before midday. However, I was told otherwise that in Penang, a wish fulfilling FengShui master is able to grant a student monk of his wish which he is to change his luck and his underprivileged condition. He wanted fame, he wanted devotees, and he wanted money to sustain his temple. I wonder why he did not request for a beautiful wife instead.
I believed, environment changes, so is the monk’s necessities. We also heard that there are also some modern monks who traded their robes for a pair of jeans. I am not surprise at all. It is all coming from the heart that is wayward, XingBu Zhen 心 不 正. Rather useless to talk about the ethic of a good master, when it only shows that they are from the same flocks of scrupulous wayward practitioners. Bloody shame indeed.
On Second Thought... - 05102010
On the contrary if such practices are as in the words of the soon to be master, dishonesty, disintegrity and most importantly, WITHOUT a sincere heart towards society and friends, why on earth, such a blog post has been removed? Well, correctly put it, why should he allow you to cover his face, similarly why should you delete your own blog post? Shame perhaps?
Strangely, one Singaporean FengShui blogger has this to share: -
"... This is another type of clown in metaphysics who had instead dragged the name of Buddhism into the pursuits of materialism which I am aghast. I hope that he had written it wrongly as he is apparently not English educated from the way he wrote, not being able to portray his thoughts well enough. I am not different as I am English educated but do have many typo errors which I hope my readers will forgive."
Since there are several emails enquiries about the article, part of it:
'the Monk, expressed his wish to change his luck and his underprevilaged condition. He wanted fame, he wanted devotees, he wanted money to substain his temple. Then, he started to sit in my feng shui class since year 2006. Within 9 months, he had started to see drastic change to his temple and increase of devotees quantity.Today, he is still come for regular feng shui study and Daoism.It is sufficient and enough for a religious monk to have a personal bungalow and a luxury car."
Yes, I am not kidding, this is what was written...- Leegiat (Sept 16, 2010)"
These are not my words, definitely. I also hope that he has written it wrongly.
This blog is dedicated towards provocateurs. An upright person is not afraid to be a subject of provocations. Anger, frustration and jealousy of not able to sit on the "dragon spot", how funny could it be? Anger, frustration and jealousy of seeing masters bastardizing FengShui and milking their student, brothers within the same school malice against one another to be closer to the teacher, these are the subjects of provocateur. Anything wrong? Stepping others so to glorify myself? How glorify can I be? Up the pedestal to be awarded grandmaster? Come on... think for yourself!
Perhaps it is strange as what has Architecture as a profession got to do with these expose as a context? I am becoming confused? Although there is always a bitter feelings between designers and FengShui practitioners for reasons of not understanding each other, it does not however boils down to an ethic of a master as in so damn low as to conciously assisting a clergy to break his precepts. Perhaps it becomes a little petty when there is nothing better and substantial to provoke and it becomes a "personal attack" instead. That is the charecteristic of petty people. Let us reflects on the following Gospels: -
存心不善 ,風水無益 ;
having evil intentions, feng shui is useless;
being unfilial to parents, worshipping God is futile;
own brothers in discord, making friends is meaningless;
behaving in misconduct, having knowledge is pointless.
Postscript: I am speechless?An astounding soon to be master now sounded liked an uneducated scrupulous scumbag! Too much of dragon Qi I supposed? The scumbag's lyrical sounded as though I am bagging him to teach me. What a joke? Perhaps he indirectly has the intention to hit on someone else across the causeway which is his hallmarks, behind veils. Well, short of saying he has no balls, lah. Same with his retinue of fans such as Swan, if I not mistaken. Thanks for showing up, Swan. I miss your bastardizing commentary. Saying thus this is not the first time, remember he quoted Master M of Thailand (This is exactly how he puts it, isn't it?) for screwing up the FengShui of one restaurant? For the soon to be master sake, let not be petty over individual differences and moves on. Talk facts with dignity and stop the childish game of personal ruthless attack, which is only meant for scumbags. Mind you, the soon to be master is supposed to be older and wiser than me (40+ maybe?). For such I thank soon to be master for guiding me. Age does not necessary means wisdom.
THE YANGGONG OLD SCHOOL WATER SHED...
GANZHOU PREFECTURE DEPUTY MAYOR LIU'S ANCESTRAL TOMB
2007, October - The author has disciple seeking to rush to GanZhou to study (the late) grandmaster Li DingXing's masterpiece - the GanZhou prefecture, deputy mayor's Liu ancestral tomb. This tomb stated year 2003 sitting Xu facing Chen seats BingXu Xue. (the late) grandmaster Li DingXing spent 3 years to locate this spot. It is said that this meridian is absolutely splendid. The author finds it difficult to imagine.
CRITICISM OF GRANDMASTER LI'S WORK
2、此墓本身很低弱，前山高而凌压，令人窒闷不畅，案朝主官星，今近而高压无情，主官星受制，无升迁之望，子孙难以出头。从山形中，笔者还 看出了一股阴邪之气，不禁笑言：“此坟必荫生偷窥女人之癖的子孙。”因为本身低而似趴在地上，侧头仰视前山，其山形如女人双脚交叉，中突一面如女人之私 处，又处巽宫女人之方位，组合起来就是一幅趴在地上偷窥女人“穴位”的图像。
This location comprises of GanZhou prefecture HongQi resevoir (close to the lake and river nearby). Reaching the spot one look deeply dissapointed. Based on the Hakka's way of saying, it overlooked on's standard. This is just but one ordinary location. Have such obvious defects. Ordinary level master would have easily observed.
1. Reversed bow water unsentimental. Front mountain have unstable Qi flowing to the front of the tomb. Stream water flow like a reverse bow shooting the Xue resulted in descendent not obedient, wealth diminishes.
2. The tomb was constructed too low with front mountain too high, supressing. Causing human affair not smooth. Based on host officer star, it is supressed not sentimental. Host officer star point of view, there will be no promotion, descendent very hard to posper. Based on mountain form, observed one breath of demonic Qi, cannot be fooled around. This grave certainly produce peeping woman’s habitual descendants. This is because the body is very low like ling on the floor, lifting the head to peep above seeing the mountain. The mountain forms look like a crossed leg woman with her private part exposed. Have locate Xun as female palace. Combined like lying on the floor to peep at woman’s underskirt.
3. Green dragon sink do not protect the Xue. Both mountains GuiChou direction sunken gaps. Host and children have difficulties.
4. The entire form is a thirsty almost dying bird. Jugged water edge liked a drunken belly. The place behind looked like a hunter’s arrow? This dragon is LuChun and WenQu in contrast this form, both inauspicious deities once not openly face. Where got Xue!
WHAT HAS ACTUALLY GONE WRONG...
One biggest landform defects as mentioned is what probably known as the Reverse Bow Water 反弓水. Back in 2007, one will notice that the river splits with one crossing the bright hall as Reverse Bow Water 反弓水. We do not think that this is the cause of the problem. The root issue is the water split as its incoming water thus receiving watershed formation. What is a watershed, this we shall contemplate later. In the googlemaps of 2016, it is noticed that this defect has been rectified, most likely by another master.
This is also a case that the late grandmaster Li DingXin, wanted to demonstrate his confidence in selecting the earth Xue, among the rest of the elements. He is very confidence that the earth element follows water. Unfortunately, he failed to observe that the formation is receiving Mao water instead of Zi water, thus receiving Death instead of Prosperous water formation...
So, the late grandmaster Li DingXing can also be wrong? Well, who is him, after all?
SOMETHING ABOUT THE LATE GRANDMASTER LI DINGXIN
WHAT IS A WATERSHED KILLING FORMATION? 分叉水
Confronting Y? - 08052012
A “Y” configuration is either a road splits into two or both roads connect into one. The former is known to be a water mouth and the latter is known as the water shed. The question is always; will a building facing the water mouth be as auspicious to a building facing a water shed, or vice-versa? Next, a pulling nose effect will happen when the road is flowing outward from the house facing while the piercing Heart effect will happen when the road is flowing inward from the house facing. Compounding both effects to the water shed or water mouth; you end up having a cocktail of “ShaQi” to deal with. Worse, if the setting is within an urban area where the roads are defined by rows of building creating what is probably known as Heavenly Chop afflictions or wind gaps. This is why it is FengShui taboo for a house to face a road or Y junction.
Many case studies revealed that houses in such a location are either vacant or dilapidated. If strictly by the books, it calls for avoidance and probably what is the point of doing FengShui in the first place if there is no cure? However, it is not necessary to be true. There are houses and shops prosper. The question is always – Why? In such doing, it is a land form issue; require a land form solution and probably not the over rated XKDG Fighting Afflictions formula based method.
Confronting Y again? - 25052014
A “Y” configuration is either a road splits into two or both roads connect into one. The former is known to be a water mouth and the latter is known as the watershed. Our article entitled "Confronting Y" is a good reflection of such that it is never Bad FengShui if a property is located in a watershed subject that you know how to position your entrance. The HongKong master always refer to such as "Confronting SanSha".
Shop-B is located in a location of the so called watershed. Many operators failed that include F&B operators. The last tenant rope in another not very well known master. The rest is history. It prosper liked nobody business. You practically have to queue up to get a seat.
The morale of the story, watershed FengShui is salvageable and if you know what to do it brings you windfall.
WHAT IS REVERSE BOW WATER? 反弓水
The Principle of Cul De Sac And Sucking Egg - 06042009
The failure of modern urban design principle in addressing the issue of human scale has paved way to the ideology of Neo Urbanism, where the human scale becomes the vital yard stick in examining urban design components such as landmarks, gateways, plaza, edge, nodes and paths are instituted to the right size of a human scale before it is implemented. One product that has signified such an arrival in Malaysia is reflected in Putrajaya, the new administrative capital to Kuala Lumpur.
In the course of my work in Valencia Sungai Buloh, one principle of Neo Urbanism that I find practical is cul-de-sac which give birth to clustered residential with ample parks and pathways clustered liked organic cells, hugging the contours, each manifesting its own identity as a community beacon with huge potentials to grow itself to another community as an entire organism of human inhabitants. In reality only the rich can afford such a dwelling in such a community. It is only the non Architectural trained FengShui master that makes an issue to such wonderful urban solutions by saying it is a sickle formation, therefore very bad Sha Qi – what a disgrace!
What is a sickle formation? Roads that wrap around the cul-de-sac are similar to rivers that wrap around an island and at the concave side of the roads or rivers are deemed to be cut by the sickle, where this is called sickle formation. This is crap!
Second, if there are fewer vehicles, the sickle formation will be less effective. This is another crap! Qi does not travel in car, as Qi does not have a valid driving license. When wind moves, Qi moves. When Qi stop, water coagulates.
Third, in the cul-de-sac formation, there may be a bright hall as the island park. The classics say, bright hall eliminate Sha Qi. So where is the sickle formation?
Fourth, if the sickle is nowhere to be found, how about the pulling nose or piercing heart ShaQi for the unit facing the incoming road that either flow out or flowing in? A pulling nose formation is where water is flowing outward from the main door of the unit in question. Whereas, piercing heart is where water is flowing in directed towards the main door of the unit in question. Answer, these are craps again as the bright hall filters out the unnecessary ShaQi, if any. So what is wrong with a cul-de-sac clustered community, FengShui wise?
Fifth, units facing the water gates are deemed less auspicious based on the premise that water gates must be locked, so that Qi will not disperse. Another less noble saying is that, it is not pleasant to face a property at the ass of the neighbourhood. However such minor concerns can easily be taken cared of by placing what designer called neighbourhood beacons as gateways. So, there is really no fuss at all.
Imagine, getting a FengShui master to teach Architect and Urban Designer to deal with the sickle ShaQi problem is liked teaching them to suck eggs? This is absolutely unwarranted. Worst, if one has to pay a premium for the art of egg sucking, such notion is unimaginable.
Good luck to the egg suckers…
Egg Sucking Jade Belt - 19042010
These brought to mind 2 distinctive developments, namely the KL Sentral at the upper stream and Mid Valley at the lower stream. What makes Mid Valley stands apart from KL Sentral although in terms of logistic, KL Sentral stood to be superior then Mid Valley?
Perhaps the answer is in the Jade Belt Formations or otherwise, egg sucking formation?
