    My fengshui master told me for an irregular shape apartments (one with alot of odd angles) its "fire" in nature and for pple whose ba zhi does not complement fire, the occupants will be bad tempered and quarrelsome....

    I have view an apartments where the masterbed is placed directly opposite the toilet and that the owner have installed a sliding "feature" wall to conceal it, not sure if its driven by fengshui though...

    If you believe in fengshui there will be no end to it. Every house will have some favourable and unfavourable aspects. And you will have to take professional advice for everyone in the house with respect to where they sleep, where they study etc etc. The more you consult and read, the more your mind will be taken up by these fengshui matters and it can threaten to take over your life and you will run your life by the FS master. So consider if you want to take on their beliefs or not. It will be almost like a "religion". If you are serious, then please consult a FS master regarding these matters. Don't rely on us forum members or you may get wrong or inappropriate advice.

    My feedback is just my 2 cents worth...certainly there are believers vs. non believers...

    Rule is not to let fengshui impact your life in impractical ways, it meant to enhance and not rule your life...

    I used to think #04-04 is a lousy number but was told by my agent that there are some people who actually asked specifically for this number so I guess there is no lousy unit number any more. Crap to some but treasure to others!

    Ai yoh, those you met are FS con-man is it?

    My FSM said where got a property must suit all family members? A good FS house is good for everybody, not just for somebody of some ba zi. Example, got face West direct sun property good FS one for some people mah? Some people need and will benefit from the West Sun heat without air-con meh?

    Please be careful and get a good FSM (there are many con-men around).

    This has nothing to do with FS, but more to do with superstition.

    Actually, some FS advice are just logical general knowledge.

    For example, not installing aircon blower above the toilet door in the master bedroom. This is not encouraged as toilets are often the place with the most germs, moisture and of course, stench from all the natural 'businesses'. By putting the blower above the door, you run the risk of circulating the germs, stench and all in the bedroom.

    Bad fengshui can be used as an excuse to avoid being labelled a property trader. So capital gains will not be regarded as income.

    Actually some sunshine into the house is good to kill germs and prevent molds. Best if your toilet windows and yard area kena west sun.

    Some design of the apartments with windows on opposite directions also good, can promote air circulation. If you notice most recent designs all the windows of the unit face the same direction, how can wind blow into the house?

    Its a thin line betw fs and superstition. To you its superstition but when I visited HK, numbers are part of their fs culture too, and we know how deeply entrenched in FS are the HK people! Sometimes, that line is blurred!

    Unfortunately for most cluster houses, they are aligned in a row, only front and back can have windows and doors so it is essential to get cluster houses which have good facing!

    Listening to FSM can really make yr pty selection and renovations a night-mare. It is not always possible to change certain things in the house and then you will worry that it has negative impact on yr family. And then you will end up buying all sorts of weird ornaments to counter the "bad" feng shui. I think unless you are going to embrace it whole-heartedly it's better not to consult FSM and better not to know. Then you can go about yr house hunting and renovations in peace and not worrying about this and that. In the end make yr pty agent's life and yr contractor's life and yr own life so much stress to get everything in the "right" orientation for all family members. If you are one or two persons maybe can still manage but to get the conditions that suit the ba-zi of 4/5/6 or more family members, it will be a great challenge.

    And if you want more than one opinion from different FSM, you could end up with different recommendations and then you will end up confused, which is the "right" one and worry that you chose the "wrong" combination. And if anything goes wrong with yr life, you will be attributing it to the feng shui or yr "wrong" choice of FSM.

    How to know which FSM recommendations are good???

    My dad went to Shanghai to 'invite' (and so I was told, not bring) some prosperity deity back but after 5 years, business still not picking up. Not much change! He usually goes to 'donate' money to the casinos, both in Malaysia and Singapore! People will then say coz he did something wrong, blar blar blar! Who is right or who is wrong? No way to verify! No end to argument!
    When things go right, you say FSM very good and accurate! When things don't work out, you say you did something wrong! Sure have excuses and explanations to everything! Sorry but no offences to anybody!

    I engaged a FSM and he say within 1 yr will strike lottery/4D if according to his placement. The placements are not bad, very practical actually.

    So, last month , my dad bought 4d and strike 1st prize and claim $34k.
    But hor... the number is the car number 8814. Not the house number.

    So, i think the better fengshui master is my car salesman in mercs.
    hehe...

    But then hor.. if the fsm gives good suggestion and practical advice, no harm putting it. Just do away with those crazy ideas like tilting your main door or shifting the stove etc.

    If I'm not wrong, there's a 10 yrs cycle for fengshui also. Our life still depends on our destiny. Fengshui is to enhance it only. I believe in FS but not 100%.

    If your toilet door is facing the bedroom door, I think the best solution is to close the toilet door. My son's bedroom is also directly facing the toilet and I have the toilet door half close most of the time because if you close it completely, then I'm afraid that the air in the toilet might be very still.

    I have a friend who is a fengshui master but this is not his main job. He told me about a few of his cases that he had come across and I was amazed at how FS do the miracles. I believe in him because I have known him for more than 20 yrs, and he is quite a modest and helpful person. Get the true FS master because some of them are actually conman which I had encountered before. Wasting money, wasting time.
