Next year 2012 is a Ren Chen Nian 壬辰年, which means that Heavenly Stem Ren 壬 (Water) is sitting on Earthly Branches Chen 辰 (Earth). This Ren 壬 (Water) is Yang water, which is often regarded as moving water in bazi methodology, so in this aspect, we can imagine that moving water is flanked by surrounding Chen 辰 (Earth). And let's hope that the earth surrounding the water can hold it well, if not, chances are; we will be seeing another episode of flooding silmilar to Thailand flood in 2012! Since there will be so much water for next year, business relating to water may bloom!
It is believed that Chen 辰 (Earth) is often regarded as 墓 mu (Grave) for Ren 壬 (Water). And one of the Water element characteristic is intelligence. As such, there is a possibility that a wise leader may leave us!
Lunar New Year will start early next year, the first day of Lunar New Year falls on 23 Jan 2012. And the best timing to seek for blessing on the first day of Lunar New Year will be between 12 mid-night to 1am. Or between 3am to 7am.
In case you are still wondering whether the Water Dragon year will commence on the first day of Lunar New Year. Well, in the actual fact, the year of Water Dragon will only commence on 4 Feb 2012, Li Chun 立春 at 1822hrs instead of 23 Jan 2012! So any babies that are born before 4 Feb, Li Chun 立春 are still belong to the year of Rabbit rather than year of Dragon!
The auspicious date to commence work for next New year will be on the fifth day of Lunar New Year, 27 Jan 2012. However, if you are born in the year of Snake, you may want to avoid using this date!
For those who are born in the year of Dragon, Goat, Dog and Ox are deemed to have offended Tai Sui 太岁.
As for health aspect, one may want to pay special attention to the followings : liver, bone-related issue, ear, bladder, and productive organs.
The positive energy star in 2012 will be located at West sector. And romance star will be located at East sector.
Last but not least, I wish everybody Long Nian Xing Hao Yun 龙年行好运 and Long Ma Jin Sheng 龙马精神！
Note : Above article is written based on yearly heavenly stem and earthly branch. A person's luck still depend very much on each own individual's bazi. If you want to know your future well-being, please consult a professional Ming Li Shi, master for advise.

Let's look at one example, a chart taken from yesterday, 22 Aug 2011, time between 5pm to 7pm.
In this chart, it shows that Ba Men (Eight Doors) are in its original position, which is also known as Fu Yin. With such configuration, one should stay put instead of making changes! But there again, not all Fu Yin chart means that you can't do anything! There are things which are suitable to carry out in such configuration! Is just like date selection, some auspicious days are not suitable to wed but that does not mean that you cannot carry out other activities!

After hearing what he said, I was thinking how the stock market direction going to be? Using Qi Men Du Jia, this is how the chart looks like.
For those who know QMDJ, what do you think of the chart? Is this a good chart or bad chart?

Is true that pricetag is always an important factor to consider when comes to buying property. Let me ask you a question, if a house faces a upslope in front and the selling price is low, say $900 psf, Freehold property and is located in Rest of Central Region (RCR), will you consider?
Well, for those who have studied Fengshui before, anything that is higher than 1inch is considered as "Mountain". In fengshui, we would like to see Ming Tang (No obstruction) in front of a house. Anything that is in front of the house that is considered as "Mountain" will somehow affect the "Qi" entering the house.
Apart from upslope in front of the house, you may want to take note of slopes around the house, slopes that may look innocent to you may bring different effect to your house fengshui. So good luck in your house hunting!

Okay, let's put Fengshui aside, let's talk about properties. But before we move on, first I have to state that I am not a Property Analyst neither I am a Property Agent. Therefore, if you choose to continue to read, please read it at your own discretion!
One of the factors when comes to buying a property is location. If you are buying for investment purpose, location, in my own opinion, is an important factor! Usually tenants would choose to rent a place that is convenient, for example near to city, near to workplace or even near to MRT station. However, I have to agree that there are still handful of tenants would choose a place that is secluded.
Talking about seclusion, last year I visited one showflat, that place was like out of nowhere. And I remember that there is no amenities around, the nearest MRT is like close to 1km away or more and not many bus services go to that location. That place really requires you to own your transportation. Despite having all these factors, that project was 100% sold out on the first day! The point here is that location may be a consideration factor but if you are buying it for own stay and transportation is not an issue. You can still go ahead with what you like!
The next thing that you want to consider is whether that project is a Leasehold or Freehold. There are people that I know, will only opt for latter as they feel that is value for money. However, there are some, who are buying for investment purpose will not be bothered by that. But you may want to pay attention to the pricetag between the Leasehold and Freehold.
When comes to buying a property, the question that you need to ask yourself is how much loan to get? And how many years of loan? At this point of writing, mortgage loan interest rate for 3 months SIBOR is at 0.5% and 3 months SOR is at 0.292%. With such a low current interest rate, no wonder it looks attractive to buy a property now. But bear in mind, low interest rate is not here for forever especially if you are planning to get 40years of loan. So when you do your sums, please take that factor into consideration.
As on how much loan to get, this depend on your commitment. Whether you have existing car loan, mortgage loan, study loan or other expense to take care of? Assuming that you do not have any loan to service, a general guideline will be 35% of your salary to set aside for your mortgage loan. And not to forget, with our last cooling measure, if you have existing mortgage loan, you will be eligible for 60% loan only.
So is this a good time to buy a property now? Well, is all depending on your needs! Whether you need a roof over your head? Or if you are buying for investment purpose? In the case of investment, then you really need to understand the supply and demand factor!
To wrap it up, buying a property is a long term commitment. So if you are planning to look for one, do your sums first. Good luck!

Let me share one of my experiences when I was working as a Project Manager. There was one project site which had a fengshui sitting on "Tai Sui - 太岁 " position. At that point of time, I already had fengshui knowledge and I knew that it was an "offence" to carry any form of activity in such position.
As that was a rush project, we had not much choices but to start work immediately, and we could forget about date selection. I knew that problem could arise if we were to carry out any work in "Tai Sui - 太岁" position, so what I could do was to give "special" instruction to my contractors - that no work was allowed in "Tai Sui - 太岁" position till further instruction from me.
At that point of time, I was handling two projects at two different sites, hence I could not put much attention to that project which had the "Tai Sui - 太岁" position. To cut the story short, when I finally got the chance to visit the site, I got a shock of my life! My contractor did not heed my instruction, they went ahead to build partition (dry wall) on that "Tai Sui - 太岁" position. And that dry wall was almost done when I saw it. Guess what happened next? We were told to tear down the whole partition!
Despite that the project had very tight construction schedule, we did not have any chance to convince my client to keep that partition, and we had to tear it down! If only my contractor had heed my advise to delay that construction on that portion, such thing would not have happened! Or an auspicious date was chosen to start our work, maybe that problem could have avoided!

For those who have studied yi-jing, you may want to intepret the sighting of little bird flying towards you. What does that mean?

Based on the time she asked that question, I plotted the QMDJ chart using my PDA, the answer to her question was : property was good, possible that property price would increase, and she could buy despite that she had worries! True enough, she bought the property.
Now, three months after her purchase, she is sitting on paper gain if we do not take 4 years Seller's stamp fee into consideration!
If you are still wondering, how did QMDJ tell the answer. Well, you may want to consider to learn this art?

As for last year 2009, the year of Tiger, I still can remember clearly that the Lunar New Year period was hot and dry! And Tiger year brought us a lot of surprises such as heavy downpour during our so called "Summer" period and flooded our Orchard road. Apart from that, we also witnessed so floodings in many countries.
So I hope that this wet Lunar New Year will not lead to drought during our Summer period, if not, I really can't imagine what is going to happen next. But I do hope that the rainfall will us alot of wealth. And I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers A Happy Lunar New Year, hope that Rabbit year will bring you tons of good luck and wealth!

Cooling tower is part of air-conditioning system which is normally used in commerical buildings. Cooling tower - as the name has suggested is a tower installed with a big fan to cool the pool of condenser water that goes through this tower.
As the condenser water is used in a recycled process, thus this process must be properly treated. In the event that condenser water are left untreated, it may lead to alot of complicated issues which may arise later on.
When a cooling tower is in operation, usually it will generate alot of noises. So if you are a person who like to live in a quiet environment, I bet you will not want to live near to a cooling tower!
On this note, I will end my 6-part series on 'Thing that you may want to watch out for' here. Hope that you will find the information useful to you. If you have any feedback, please feel free to drop me a message or email.
Thank you. Do stay tuned in my blog, I will bring more good stuffs soon...

You may want to take note of the followings if you are planning to buy the highest floor:
1. Check if there is any water tank on top
2. Good water-proofing system
Below is a photo which I took recently, this building is more than 10 years old but look at the roof of this particular unit, there are signs of water leaking from the roof. So having a leaking roof over your head is something which you may want to avoid! Good luck in your house hunting!

In Fengshui water theory, it is believed that the direction of water flow can affect your wealth. Having the water flowing towards your property is better than water flowing out from your property. But wait, this is based on assumption that the drain is big enough to hold the water. Imagine this; if the drain, which is close to your property, is not able to hold the water? Well, most likely you will get floods! And flooding may lead to property damage! Thus, your wealth will be indirectly affected!
Apart from flooding, what are things which you can think of - that a drain may bring? Well, smell and pollution. Yes, drain water can bring smell and pollution issue if not properly maintained. On this note, I would like to urge everyone to take good care of our drains so that such smell and pollution problems will not arise.
So before your next property purchase, you may want to pay more attention on its surrounding. Spend more time walking around the property area first, this will save you alot of troubles in the future. Good luck!

Having a construction site around your property may somehow affect you. And this depend on how close the construction site is and where it is located. Putting Fengshui aside, you may find that noise generated from such site may affect your daily life as well. Apart from that, you may find alot of dusts around you which requires you to do more cleaning than usual.
So if you are planning to buy a property which is close to construction site, you may want to take note on the above-mentioned issues before you sign the Option to purchase.
Good luck! Do stay tuned for part 2 on Things that you may want to watch out for.
