Indian Wedding

The good thing about living in Singapore is that you get the chance to attend different races' weddings. Personally, I have attended Malay's wedding and Indian's wedding. And just a couple of days ago, I attended another Indian friend's wedding.


By the way, if you are going to attend an Indian friend's wedding soon. Do take note that Indian prefer odd numbers, so in other words, if you are preparing to give Ang pow to the newly wed couple, the figure should be like S$30 or S$50.




This photo was taken before the commencement of wedding buffet dinner. All the guests were witnessing the ceremony which was held inside the Temple's hall.

Seeing the world in a different angle.

Sometimes in life, we tend to see things in one direction. But life can be very different if you were to see it in another angle. 

Just like fengshui, only experienced masters would be able to "see" more things than a novice! Having said that, please do not mistaken that "older" people or so called old masters are more experienced than a younger chap! In fact, there are so many famous masters, they are actually very young! Some of those masters are even younger than me... but I have to admit that some of these young masters started to pick up fengshui skill much earlier than me, even though I have started to learn fengshui back in year 2000.

Therefore, is important thing to note that how many years a master have been practising that matters!

Using bazi to forecast - can mishaps be seen from bazi?

This morning, I heard from the news that two planes had crashed. One at Tokyo International Airport Narita, while the other plane crashed in Montana. So I wondered, whether both air disasters had to do with a bad day?

I know that there were instances that masters presented their research data to prove that that mishaps could be seen from bazi. Let's take today incident for example, using the incident day and time for the crashed plane at Narita airport, the reported incident time was 6.50am local time. The bazi for that day and time would be as follows :


丁丁
卯卯卯

Looking at the bazi, it shows that the day master for today is a Ding 丁 Fire sitting on Mao 卯 Wood. Apart from that, there were many supports (Woods) around this day master Ding 丁 Fire and the only water Gui 癸 was weak. Without external threats such as strong water to extinguish the fire and metal to trim the strong wood Mao 卯, with such configuration in the bazi, we can conclude that during the incident time, the day master was a strong fire.

With such finding, question is : can we straight jump into conclusion that because of the strong fire presence, that was the likely cause of incident? Well, this depend on how much you believe in bazi.

Likewise, if we were to use today's bazi to forecast stock market direction. Today should be a good day for stocks! In one of my earlier postings, Friday the 13th , I wrote that some masters' analysed that stocks perfer fire element, they believe that fire element can enhance stock market performance. Well, in order to prove that this theory is correct, I guess you need to collect more data and do research on it.

Love Story

The first time I heard this song, it gave me a nice and special feeling. After watching the video clip from youtube, it made me like this song even more. The singer, Taylor Swift, is such a great beauty. Watch the video clip and you will see the magic touch in it.

Would like to take this opportunity to dedicate this lovely song to my loved ones. Especially to THL.

Pray for good health and harmony

What is important in life? Money or .....?

Well, personally I feel that is good health and harmony, without good health and harmony even a person who have tons of money, will find himself living in misery.

Let's pray for good health and harmony, only with these 2, you will find yourself richer in life!

Face reading - the truth unfolds (For guys only)

For guys only

Guys, have you ever wondered how to know your girlfriend love you more than you love her? Do you know that by looking at her eyes, you can know the answer?

And do u know that by looking at a lady's nose, you can know whether she will bring luck to her spouse?

Singapore River

Singapore river plays an important role in the early days, it was a place where all tradings were done here. It became the centre of commercial activities back then.

In 1977, there was a major plan to transform Singapore river into a clean river within a ten year period. A massive resettlement exercise was carried out; hawkers, squatters and industries were relocated.

In 1987, Singapore river achieved the goal of a clean river. And it did not stop here, our river now has become part of our reservoirs.

After going through some many years of changes, the riverbank is still full of active of a different nature. So have you ever wondered whether is the river (water) that brought wealth to the surrounding?


Turning our river into a future reservoir! That is a brilliant idea! Let's do our part to keep our river clean!

Reflection

Sometimes in life, we tend to see things based on surface value and straight jumped into conclusion. But sometimes things cannot simply judge based on surface value. Take this photo for example, if I were to show you this photo without the reflection in the river, I bet that you would not know that there was a tall building behind the low rise building. 

Likewise for fengshui, masters usually prefer to visit site to have better understanding of the surrounding rather than giving comments based on photos taken.

Bamboo plants - the fengshui cure

Some of you may have heard of using plants to correct a fengshui problem. And some of you may even heard that bamboo plants can do a wonderful job on that.

Whatever it is, bamboo plants have been one of my favourite plants, I like them because they are beautiful!

It was a "bull" run after all

Last friday, I mentioned that some websites stated that Friday the 13th was considered as an unlucky day for stocks but based on Heavenly Stem and Earthly branches on that day, which was a Fire element day. Fire element would favour stocks. 

A check on last friday Straits Times Index (STI), it shows that STI registered the biggest jump for that day, it closed 5.6% higher or 83.99points. The indices across the Asia pacific region also fared pretty well, most of the indices closed on average of 3% higher. However, there were 3 indices in negative territory.

So it seems like Fire element day really favour our stocks? Or was it just a pure coincidence? Only time will tell.

Is Friday the 13th!

So is Friday the 13th an unlucky day? According to some websites, they claimed that Friday the 13th is usually an unlucky day for stocks.

But looking at today's Heavenly stem and Earthly branches is consisted of 丁 Ding Fire and 己 Ji Fire. There are masters who used Heavenly stem and Earthly branches to deduce the stock market's direction, in their research they believe that stocks belong to Fire element therefore they would regard that Fire element is good for stocks. Based on this assumption, stocks should be good for today!?

As I do not go into research on stocks using Heavenly Stem and Earthly branches, and I have to admit that I know NOTHING about stocks, let alone using such method to deduce market's outcome. The only thing that I can say is we will be able to know the answer at today's market closing.

Assuming that masters are correct using the above method, maybe we will expect every stock markets in every part of the world end up having the same outcome? Well, again we will know the answer at the of today's markets closing.

Note : Readers and investors should only invest based on their research, please seek professional advise from your stock dealers, please DO NOT invest or speculate without understanding them .

Crossroad

Which path will you choose, left path or right path? The choice is yours...... 

Many time in life, you may come to a point when you have to make a decision. Everybody is bound to face such critical moment, I am no exception to it. But I have to admit that there were times that I did use Qi Men Dun Jia to assist me. 

What I did was to plot the Qi Men Dun Jia chart based on the time which I wanted an answer. From the chart, I would deduce the outcome of the event. So far, it had never failed me. In fact, I was "saved" a couple of times! I really cannot imagine what would happen if I did not check the chart.

Birthday Greeting to my dear friends....

It seems like this month I have a lot of friends were born during this period. And based on my observations, those friends of mine who were born during this period seems to be smarter and luckier....and of cos prettier too! You girls will be happy if you were to see this, right?

Okay, let me wish Fion and Hui Ying Happy Birthday. May all Your Sweet Dreams come true......

Cheers !

How Qi Men Dun Jia can save your day.

Have you ever had such an experience of doing something and regretted later? I bet the feeling must be damn lousy right? So have you thought of how to get over it or better still how to prevent such lousy experience from occurring?

Well, Qi Men Du Jia (QMDJ) can provide you an extra opinion on things you do. For example, you are making a decision whether you should proceed to purchase a 3 day package holiday tour or not. By looking at QMDJ chart, if there is no major taboo from the chart, you can continue with your plan. However if the chart shows sign of taboo, is better not to take any risk of having holiday. Thus, this will save your day.

Our Merlion

Of late, there have been some comments on our Merlion's head, which was striked by lightning on last sat late afternoon.

In Asiaone website, http://www.asiaone.com/Travel/News/Story/A1Story20090304-126212.html , it was reported that Geomancers and masters were asked to comment on this issue. From the poll result, it seemed like masters were divided, some masters based on their fengshui experience viewed that was a good sign. While the other half viewed it as bad omen.

And in last Sunday Lianhe Wanbao, there was also an article on masters' view on the Merlion's head. One master even commented that from Qi Men Dun Jia point of view, it was a good sign.

So which is which? A good sign or a bad omen? If you were to ask me what was my view on this, I would have simply put fengshui and Qi Men Dun Jia aside. Myself is an Electrical trained Engineer, I would view the damage on the Merlion's head was due to lack of proper lightning protection rather than a message from elsewhere!

Assuming that there was indeed a message from elsewhere, then I would say no matter what happens. We would still end up having both, the good sign and bad omen. Why? You ask. Well, we are already in the state of recession, isn't this consider bad? And economy is unlikely to improve overnight, and most likely in the next couple of months, more bad news would surface.

Therefore I would say that the damage was an indeed a bad omen. Having say that, we should not forget the law of physics, it stated that what goes up will still come down. Likewise, our economy will not be always in recession, it will recover. Is just like at the end of the tunnel you will get to see the ray of light. So no matter what, the damage on the Merlion's head is still a good sign after all, our economy will recover in the near term. If you were to look at this issue positively, the damage on the Merlion's head has indirected created some job opportunity for contractors! In addition, it had attracted more people to go there to see the damaged Merlion's head, it had brought business on the surrounding shops and restaurants.

If the Merlion's head had the lightning protection installed in the first place, I guess there would not be so much talks on whether the lighting strike was a good sign or bad omen. Nevertheless, we should not let this matter bother us, we should move forward from here.

Jurong Hill


The last time I visited this place was many years back, I remember I was there with a friend. My friend had never been there, so I thought it would be a nice place to enjoy some night view up on the hill. 

I was right, the night view was spectacular. The thousands of lamposts down there reminded me of my stay in Australia. When I was in Australia, my classmates and I used to go up to Mt Cootha , the most unforgetable moment was during winter time. The temperature was freezing cold but we were up there eating ice-cream, sounds crazy isn't it? But trust me, the feeling of eating ice cream during winter is very different!

Anyway, back to Jurong Hill. After so many years, decided to visit this place again. To see how it is like during day time. Below are some of the photos which I took.




View from the lookout point.


The building basement is a restaurant.

You can go to the top of the building to have a better view.

Engineers are amazing

Do you watch the Dream-catcher serial, which is currently aired on every Mondays to Fridays during prime-time slot? If you have not, let me briefly narrate the serial. The story is all about 8* Engineers who work in various trades such like aircraft repair, wafer-fab and manufacturing, the challenges that Engineers face everyday. 

One of the Engineers in that serial even invented a portable kidney dialysis. For that invention, that Engineer won himself a medical related award. With such a storyline, the serial hope that it will inspire more people to come forward to join such industrials.

Having say that, have they missed out another breed of Engineers whose contributions are of significance? Engineers from construction industry! Engineers such as Civil Engineer, Electrical and Mechanical Engineer, their commitment to design and build safe and wonderful design buildings. Without them, we would not be able to live in a comfortable environment. Therefore, we should not forget to give credits to them too!

*I derived the number of 8 Engineers based on faces that I see almost everyday in the serial, there could be more than 8. 



Drove past our IR, which are still in the midst of building. 

Have you ever wondered, how did Engineers think of such wonderful building designs and having them built without any difficulty?

When I saw how these buildings were built, I really have to salute to those Engineers. Without their contributions, I guess we would not never be able to stay or live in such wonderful design buildings!
