Shanghai Expo

Time really flies! This photo was taken last year September. Shanghai Expo Site was still in the midst of construction. Today, 31 Oct 2010 marks the closing ceremony for Shanghai Expo 2010. Is a pity that I did not have the chance to visit the Expo.

Well, to compensate the "loss" maybe I will plan Shanghai trip again to visit some of the places which I did not visit in my last trip there.

Another new measure

It was reported that Property cooling measures introduced in Aug 30 seem to have worked. And property transaction for the month of September did show sign of slowing down after the cooling measures.

Now, here is another point (Source : Channel Newsasia Website) which you need to know if you are planning to buy or sell a HDB flat. Good luck!

Should I buy? Or should I wait? Use Qi Men Dun Jia to find out

This question : whether to buy or not, has been bugging me for days. Instead of letting this question to continue to hunt me, I have decided to use Qi Men Dun Jia to find an answer!

The chart reveals that I should NOT buy. And it shows that I should wait.

Will I get the job? Using Qi Men Dun Jia to find out (Part 2)

This is last monday Qi Men Dun Jia chart, is about a job interview. Look at the chart, will the job-seeker gets the job?

To find the answer, first look at the Kai Men. From the chart - Kai Men, it shows that the job-seeker is aggresive! Knowing that the job-seeker is aggresive. Next, we can try to find out how the interviewer feels about the job-seeker. And it shows that interviewer was "disappointed" by job-seeker!

So what is the reason behind the disappointment?

If you are planning to go for a holiday and you are not sure whether is this the right time to go as safety is always your top priority. Why not check Qi Men Dun Jia (QMDJ) first? In QMDJ, if a chart shows Fu Yin (just like the one below).

In this instance, you should consider postpone your plan. A Fu Yin chart usually spells that holiday may not be enjoyable! So instead of letting your holiday spoil your mood, why not stay put first?

Showflat and Case Study

Despite the property cooling measures in Aug 30, property showflat are still flooded with potential buyers. And this particular project located in North-eastern part of Singapore caught my attention recently. Before I start talking about this project, I have to agree that this project really have many plus points to begin with.

Firstly, this project is located near to mrt and all it takes is 3min walk to reach MRT station. There are not many projects which are walking distance to MRT. With such conveniences, I bet this is one of the major pull factors.

In addition, there are amenities around that area. Just a stone's away, you can find supermarket, clinic and 24-hrs coffeeshop. Or if you prefer to shop in air-conditional mall, all you need to do is hop into North-eastern bound train, it will bring you to the shopping mall which is just one stop away!

And the most important thing is the selling price, based on current hot property market, the indicative psf is not considered high if you were to compare with other similar projects. With so many pull factors, of course I am being attracted to this project.

Below is the sketch of the site plan. 'A' in the sketch denotes the first block that is nearer to the main Entrance.

Now, let's put all the Pull factors aside. Let's touch abit on the fengshui aspect.

This project is North-east / South-west orientation. In fengshui period 8, it is believed that houses with such facings are considered auspicious.

Another point noted from the site plan is right in front of the main entrance is a curved road.

Side view A-A shows that there is a gradual slope on the existing plot of land. As I do not have the full detail of this project, in this sketch I could only assume that the buildings would be built based on current condition. Therefore, I cannot comment much on this aspect till project is completed.

In an ideal condition - the slope (ground below) should be filled up to the same level with the road surface.

To make this case study interesting, now let's look at the site plan again. This time, please look at the site plan in a different view. Using macro view (or helicopter view), can you see anything interesting?

Still cannot see anything? Well, not to worry. But before I continue to demostrate what I have discovered in the site plan. Maybe you want to try again? Now, let your imagination run wilds! Can you see anything?

Okay, I shall continue from here. In the next photo, you will see that I used a highlighter to highlight those blocks. Can you see that there is a Trigram in those blocks?

Now, let's remove the outline in the site plan. This is what you get. (See photo below)

For those who have studied fengshui, you would have recognised this symbol (Trigram). This is Li Trigram (aka Li Gua).

In fengshui, Li Gua is represented as Fire element. In this case, where this plot of land sits on South-west, facing North-east direction. Both directions are considered Earth element. With this Li Trigram (Fire element) in the centre of this project.
In the cycle of (element) birth, it means that there will be fire to support the Earth element. In fengshui, we prefer elements to produce (support) one another rather than having elements clashing one another.
Isn't interesting to discover this Li Trigram in the layout? Now, it makes me wonder whether is this coincidental or this design has consulted some great masters? Anyway, do more research if you want to! And happy fengshui-ing!
