Christmas Cheers



Hi Folks,

As usual,

About Death

Two men waiting at the Pearly Gates strike up a conversation.

"How'd you die?" the first man asks the second.

"I froze to death," says the second.

"That's awful," says the first man. "How does it feel to freeze to death?"

"It's very uncomfortable at first," says the second man. "You get the shakes, and you get pains in all your fingers and toes. But eventually, it's a very calm way to go. You get numb and you kind of drift off, as if you're sleeping. How about you, how did you die?"

"I had a heart attack," says the first man. "You see, I knew my wife was cheating on me, so one day I showed up at home unexpectedly. I ran up to the bedroom, and found her alone, knitting. I rushed down to the basement, but no one was hiding there. I ran up to the second floor, but found no one there either. I went as fast as I could to the attic, and just as I got there, I had a massive heart attack and died."

The second man shakes his head. "That's so ironic," he says.

"What do you mean?" asks the first man.

"If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we'd both be still alive."

Now to carry on with using poker cards for divinations in Yi Jing, you will have to get a set of playing cards. Kindly treat it with respect and keep it out of sight when not in use. Please do not use it for your Chinese New Year or any occasions for gambling or entertainment activities.

Further explanations of timing of the lunar months. The first card at the north is the Rat month Zi ( in this scenario, the Ace of Spade ), followed by Chou (Ten of Hearts), ignore the seven of spades which is for other purpose for the cardinal direction of North-east. Then the nine of spade would be the Yin Lunar Month.

Good, we are ready to start now.

First, remove all the twos, threes, fours and fives card and the jokers in the stack.

Now to begin, make sure you are relaxed and not under any stress. Imagine you are with a friend, and you are pouring out your worries and trouble to? Shuffle the cards as you think of the question you wanted to ask. Make it specific. You don’t ask ‘When I can be rich?’ because it might be tomorrow when you buy a lottery ticket or twenty years later. You ask ‘Can I be rich by Tomorrow?’ But before you do that, ask yourself in the heart, is it possible? If not, by logic, don’t bother, ask something else more sensible to avoid wasting your time.

When you are ready, cut the cards into two halves, and put the top under the second half.
Then the first card would be the prelimary assessment by the Yi Jing of your situation.
However, ha-ha, we would start it simple, taking readings from the first card which would be the centre card to your question. Ignore about the rest which I would carry on after the New Year. Now if it shows a card with Hearts or Diamonds, it is auspicious but if it shows a Spade or Club card, be wary of whatever actions you want to undertake. For the areas that the cards would portray, e.g. relationship, health, wealth, etc, I would carry on with as I said after the New Year. Not to worry, you can try this out and see if the aftermath is correct or not for the moment for any decision making. For building the circle of cards and the hexagram, after New Year Day. At the moment, just remember Red is positive and Black colour cards are negative situations. For a start, the ace always represent relationship, so for those of you looking for love in this festive season, may you get an Ace of Hearts. If you don’t get it, ha-ha, don’t worry, I will explain further about the other cards significance after New Year Day.

Till-then,

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Yi Jing and Me II


Hi folks,

As usual,

Why we have to follow destiny?

With the help of a fertility specialist, a 65 year old woman has a baby. All her relatives come to visit and meet the newest member of their family. When they ask to see the baby, the 65 year old mother says, "Not yet."

A little later they ask to see the baby again. Again the mother says, "Not yet."

Finally they say, "When can we see the baby?"

And the mother says, "When the baby cries."

So they ask, "Why do we have to wait until the baby cries?"

The new mother says, "I forgot where I put it."

Now to carry on with the Yi Jing,

An extract from Taoist Hua-Ching Ni ‘s ‘The Book Of Change and The Unchanging Truth’.

‘The I Ching does not give subjective answers to your questions. Nor does it make decisions for you. Rather, it inspires you to view matter differently and make your own decision. Thus it assists your development rather than your dependence upon it.

The I Ching is too big to carry around and use each time we need to make or respond to a change. The most meticulous fortune telling system cannot help a person make good and correct responses to each situation in life, but an experienced driver or mechanic has no need to refer to an instruction booklet to operate or repair his machine. Skill comes from practice and more practice. Thus, one’s ability to respond to situations effectively is a matter of personal growth. The use and study of the I Ching assists that growth.’

Occasionally, the I Ching will respond with an answer that refers to something other than what asked. This indicates a response to your deepest and most urgent problem rather than to your more superficial question. Do not be so rigidly focused on your question that you fail to recognize a warning concerning a much more serous circumstance.’

Courtesy of Master Hua-Ching Ni.

How it was named Plum Blossoms Method or 梅花义数

Shao Kangjie was looking out his window, and noticed two sparrows fighting around a plum tree. He quickly did a calculation and predicted that the next day, a girl would climb the tree to pick flowers. Something would startle her and she would fall. She would be hurt, but not seriously. Sure enough, all this came to pass. How did Master Shao know? He used Plum Flower Yijing Calculation.





Now you will noticed that I mentioned twelve cards at the outer circle for tabulating times and what are the four extra cards doing there? Now look at the outer circle of cards as a pie with eight sectors of directions, namely, starting from east, southeast, south to north. Then take note of the cardinal cards of Northeast, Southeast, Southwest and Northwest. The remainder of the cards in the outer circle then represent the month sequence with the 3rd lunar month starting from East which is the card of the Queen of Spade followed by the card Nine of Hearts which is for 4th Lunar month and then you ignore the card of Ten of Clubs which is for another purpose and then you carry on with the Jack of Hearts as the 5th Lunar month and so forth. Just ignore the cardinal cards I mentioned for fixing the cards that represent the months.

Back soon with next posting for those of you who are a bit slow on using the cards for divination.

Till-then, cheerio!!!

Yi Jing and Me

Hi Folks,

As Usual,

Why I can’t blame Mr. Pig,


An aged farmer and his wife were leaning against the edge of their pig-pen when the old woman wistfully recalled that the next week would mark their golden wedding anniversary.

"Let's have a party, Homer," she suggested. "Let's kill a pig."

The farmer scratched his grizzled head. "Gee, Ethel," he finally answered, "I don't see why the pig should take the blame for something that happened fifty years ago."

Ha, ha….



Now to carry on with Yi Jing Divination using Poker Cards,

As you noticed there is a centre card which will gives an answer and there are eight cards surrounding it apart from another twelve in the outer circle. This is the Bagua for the eight cards in the second circle. You will notice there aren’t any cards for 2, 3, 4 and 5. This system uses the Gua or trigrams based on early heaven arrangement for divination. The eight cards which each represent a gua is also divided into eight sectors representing eight areas in life. The Directions followed the later heaven arrangement that is, looking at it, the top would be south, the bottom would be north, the left side would be east and the right side would be west. This is for fengshui purpose. In my earlier post, I mentioned that I got an Ace of Heart from my divination. Surprisingly it is shown in the south position in this divination. ESP, ha-ha. The outer circle of the cards represent the twelve lunar month of the year. This is for checking the time of events. There are another 3 cards at the side of the layout.





A story about how Mei Hua Yi Shu 梅花义数 comes about,

Story of a broken pillow.

In olden China, people sleeps on ceramic pillow. Shao Kang Jie woke up one morning and saw a rat in his room. He then took his pillow and threw it at the rat. The pillow cracked open and inside was a note that said: this pillow will be sold to Shao who will break the pillow when he throws it at a rat at a certain time, on a certain day, on a certain month and on a certain year.

This is amazing thought Shao, for he had just broke the ceramic pillow under the very circumstances and exact time as in the note. Shao decided to track down the author of the note.

This lead him to the potter who made the pillow who told him about an old man who would sit in his workroom carrying the Yi Jing under his arm. Then Shao went to the old man’s house only to be told by a young boy that his father, had died two days earlier.
Thinking that he had come too late, Shao started to leave. But the son called him back and gave Shao a book that his father asked to be given to a scholar that would come to his house two days after his death. And that this scholar would be able to find where the money was buried to pay for his funeral.

That book was the Yi Jing and tucked inside the pages were the formulas for prediction. With this, Shao was able to mathematically calculate where the old man had buried his silver to pay for the funeral expenses.

Next episode: How it was named Plum Blossom Oracle 梅花义数 and further about the standard Bagua poker card readings used for divination.

Spooks 2

Hi all,

As usual,

A Story about the Frog Prince,

Recently, the Psychic Hotline and Psychic Friends Network have launched hotlines for frogs. Here is the story of one frog and his discussing with his psychic.

A frog telephones the Psychic Hotline and is told, "You are going to meet a beautiful young girl who will want to know everything about you."

The frog says, "This is great! Will I meet her at a party, or what?"

"No," says the psychic. "Next semester in her biology class."


Ha-ha, a restless Sunday nite, nothing to do, found some excitement here. Enjoy!



Till-then, Argh!!!

Bears and Bulls



Hi folks,

As usual,

How the government system works.

In an effort to determine the top crime fighting agency in the country, the president narrowed the field to three finalist, the CIA, the FBI, and the Chicago Police.

The three remaining contenders were given the task of catching a rabbit which was released into a forest.

The CIA went into a forest. They placed animal informants throughout. They questioned all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigation they concluded that rabbits do not exist.

The FBI then went into the forest. After two weeks without a capture, they burned the forest killing everything in it, including the rabbit. They made no apologies. The rabbit deserved it.

A rabbit was then released into another forest. The CPD went into the forest. They came out two hours later with a badly beaten bear. The bear was yelling "Okay, Okay, I'm a rabbit, I'm a rabbit".



Ah, to carry on with the Yi Jing.

Two month or so ago, I got a MMS picture of a Yi Jing card reading from a client of mine shown in the picture above. The card in the centre is the subject. Normally for Asian countries with Chinese community places, you would sometimes find the odd stall with a table and stool with a umbrella occupied by a so called fortune teller using poker card for divinations. Most of the time, it is based on the Yi Jing and some would have a Chinese deity on the table for inspiration.

My this client, boy, was in a fluster over the reading. And I don’t find it unusual.
Accordingly, as it showed a black club of queen in the centre, it means bad events would be happening to the person involved which in this case is the mother who will meet with a disaster last month. The last divination I did with this method had also a similar card and subsequently, the client had passed away with cancer relapse..

I, of course, can’t panic, right? We are seasoned practitioners set to find out causes and effects, can’t afford to.

Don’t bother with the rest of the cards which was for fine-tuning the readings as it would be too complicated to explain. However, for those interested, be patient as I’ m seeking approval from my mentor, Mr. Vincent Koh of Singapore Fengshui Centre to access his chat room to share this not so ancient art of fortune telling (poker cards was invented a few hundred years ago only, right) for the kind and right people who helps out with giving advice, though right or wrong on the Internet. Not promoting his website but I had an obligations to Yi Jing to share and promote this knowledge for free and I can’t think of a more suitable site which I can use for free.

I, of course, was surprised as I have the mother’s bazi though the hour pillar was not given. And I also have the daughter’s birth chart and I can’t see anything amiss. I did know that the mother have diabetes and it don’t kill if under proper medication and diet. I then, to play safe (local slang) ask the Yi Jing. It showed a card of the Ace of heart. It put a smile on my face at the answer as not only that it’s an auspicious card but she was my ex-girlfriend and who have been promoting me to all her Malaysian friends and which I have put a stop to lately.. The Yi Jing was telling me ‘Ah, this person is related to you right? Don’t worry.’ This card also represents Man and Woman relationship.

I was then puzzled as the poker card readings for divination is always right regardless of the expertise of the one doing it. How did the queen of club come about in the first divination? On further inquiry into the health of the mother, it turns out that the subject also has mental delusions which can leads to accidents or committing suicide. I then check out the house fengshui which I have audited before, I only then realized that the mother gua was 9 and her house chart have mountain star 9 in the south and with the annual star 5 this year in that sector, it create a mental problem with 9 enhancing 5. However, cure has already been implemented early this year. I then realized coincidentally that she, at that time, have bought another property which she was shifting in the following month and of course, would have change the destiny. The Yi Jing is telling me, ‘Ah, so do you understand now?’ Ha-ha, do you? Well, I leave it to you to decide.

To conclude, an understanding and the right attitude of usage of the Yi Jing in pursuit of Metaphysics would be enhanced with triple speed for a normal student and I stand by this quote. Even if you don’t agreed, ha-ha……

Till-then, cheerio!!!
Yes, what I' m doing at home on a Friday nite? Ha-ha, I also don't know.

Understanding Politics



Hi all,

As usual,

A quote from the late,late show on telly,

"U.N. officials said today they desperately need $7 billion to help people cope with disasters, but they're having a hard time getting people to send rescue money. Here's what the UN should do: Invest in bad mortgages, run a bank into the ground, give yourself a bonus, get some spa treatments and, in no time, the government will send you $750 billion." --Jay Leno

This is an interesting link to gossips for kay pohs like me, ha-ha.

http://alvinology.wordpress.com/2008/12/01/who-is-nga-kor-ming/

This blog puts a smile on my face after reading this article. My apologies as the YouTube recordings are in Mandarin for those of you who do no understand the language. The guy mentioned in this article is a Malaysian Politician who reminds me of the Ju Men Star 巨门 or The Speaker in Zi Wei Astrology. The Ju Men Star belong to the Southern Group of Stars. By the way, Mr. Obama have this star flying from the opposite palace of spouse with 'Hua Quan' into the Career Palace for his present ten year span of his life. Hua Quan means enhancement of the star with Authority in case you have forgotten. This guy really have all the dynamics in a true Ju Men Star with the right matrix of support stars. Wonder what is his Bazi chart with the hour pillar not given? Really cool….

Till-then, cheerio!!!

Me and Yi-Jing

oOps, should be Yi-Jing and Me, Ha-ha, hope you dun mind, Yi-Jing.

Ah, another nice afternoon to indulge in my present torture of knowing too much or is it?

Feeling Lost lately, with the holidays. Can't move around as Mr. Rat, my sword or some call it the bloody knfe, ha-ha, would be around soon. By the way, I am a Yang Ren or strong water person and Mr. Rat, supposed to be my secret friend, have a conspiracy or combinations with my Mr. Ox in my chart and would be moving the sword. Dun know what I can do to pass my time. Thought of maybe accepting the offer of a trip to Hongkong with all expenses paid for December BUT. Surprisingly, got a signal from my dear Yi-Jing and here it goes:




Ok, let me just talk more about my best friend, Yi-Jing as I' m thinking that for some of you folks who don't know much about Zi Wei Astrology or Purple Star Astrology can read the book by Mr. Loh Yew Fatt, 'Predestined Affinity' or something like that. You can go to the forum that I have mentioned earlier on for some comments on it, in my earlier post. Not that I' m being lazy, ha-ha. By the time I have finished with it at this pace, you might lose your interest.

Now, I still have not figured out the gender for Yi Jing, so we would just address as it is ? . I personally feel that the Yi Jing is the basis for all metaphysics studies. Initially, you might feel out of touch with using the texts for interpretations or divinations, but don't despair. It takes times to be connected. It's like you just got to know a friend. It would take times to built a relationship to a level that it's like having telepathy. Like some of you might find that certain best friend or close one is in trouble, you would get an uneasy feeling the whole day. That' s what I meant, intuition.

Anyway, I would stop now to enjoy this lazy afternoon. Argh, it's fading off!

Till-then,
Cheerio!!!

Golf and Yi-Jing



As usual, but with respect.

Moses, Jesus and an old man are golfing.

Moses steps up to the tee and hits the ball. It goes sailing over the fairway and lands in the water trap. Moses parts the water and chips the ball onto the green.

Jesus steps up to the tee and hits the ball. It goes sailing over the fairway and lands in the water trap. Jesus just walks on the water and chips the ball onto the green.

The old man steps up to the tee and hits the ball. It goes sailing over the fairway and heads for the water trap. But, just before it falls into the water, a fish jumps up and grabs the ball in its mouth. As the fish is falling back down into the water, an eagle swoops down and grabs the fish in its claws. The eagle flies over the green where a lightning bolt shoots from the sky and barely misses it. Startled, the eagle drops the fish. When the fish hits the ground, the ball pops out of its mouth and rolls into the hole for a hole-in-one.

Jesus then turns to the old man and says, "Dad, if you don't stop fooling around, we won't bring you next time."

Ha-ha, Divine Intervention.

Hi Folks,

Just in case you are around. Zi Wei Astrology SOON, ha-ha.

Cheers.

Cowboy and Life



Hi Folks,

As usual,

A Cowboy’s Guide to Life.


'Never squat with yer spurs on.

There are two theories to arguin' with a woman; neither one works.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around.

After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him. The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'..

It don't take a genius to spot a goat in a flock of sheep.

Never ask a barber if he thinks you need a haircut.

Good judgment comes from experience; experience comes from bad judgment.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Never drop your gun to hug a grizzly.

If you're ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.

When you give a lesson in meanness to a critter or a person, don't be surprised if they learn their lesson.

When you're throwin' your weight around, be ready to have it thrown around by somebody else.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier 'n puttin' it back in.

Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it back in your pocket.

Never miss a good chance to shut up.'

My apologies, ain't got anything worth to contribute lately. About Zi Wei Astrology, do you remember earlier that I had posted a link to a forum which have contributions from Master Tony Tan so that I don't have to keep copying, ha-ha. For the Southern group, I would try to do some posting the next few days, if he is still not back from Indonesia to contribute. Argh,it will be back to work. Finally, the Strategist in Mr. Obama has shown up with a brilliant tactic which I have been wondering why the previous government had not focus on and had spend funds on unnecessary projects and scientific research, quote from a news report: 'He also plans to develop alternative energy technologies that he says can free the United States from its dependence on foreign oil and keep the US economy competitive in the years ahead.' Well-done, Mr. Strategist.

Till-then,
Cheerio!!!

Sun Tzi' s Art of War



Hi Folks,

Did you all go on to Master Joseph Yu Blog for his views on Liu Fa Fengshui, I assure you that it would be interesting. and it is not a commercial site. I have not come across any reputable master yet who have taken this stance on Liu Fa Fengshui. Sure admire him for that for bringing out his views. I’ m not related to him, so don’t worry, ha-ha…

By the way, I was getting bored yesterday but got amused when I came upon an interesting article about a news report by Master Ken Lai in his blog from October 2007. Nothing to do with the above topic. Guess it would be tedious for you all to search, here it goes.

‘The following case is a real Feng Shui war happened in Taiwan. This is taken from a newspaper report.

The office building of a government department looks like the mouth of a tiger. It is called "Tiger Snooping" (老虎探頭 ) formation.

Around 1980, the residents lived across the street of this office had a family member who died accidentally. They hired a Feng Shui master to find out the cause.

The master said the government office across the street looks like a tiger opening its mouth to bite potential prey. The mouth pointed at this resident's (Mr. Wu) house. So accidents happen to them.

This family was advised to put two 30 cm long wooden arrows on the external wall facing the government office. Life becomes peaceful again for many years.

Five years ago, the government promotes energy-efficient designs and put sun-blocking steel mesh around the office building.

Mr. Wu did not feel comfortable with this steel mesh, so he consulted the Feng Shui master again.

The master said the Feng Shui formation becomes "tiger wears armor". The steel mesh has boosted the power of the tiger mouth. ( Ha-ha, pardon me when it gets to this part, I sure love the beauty of the Chinese language in fengshui, didn’t meant anything else, my personal quote )

Mr. Wu replaced the wooden arrows with stainless steel arrows and increases the bow and arrow sets from two to three.

Strange things happened after this Feng Shui battle has started. The wife of the dept. head of this government office and multiple employees died of accidents or cancer. Low morale and fear rule this government office.

The government office invited Mr. Wu for negotiation and compromise. But so far nothing is done yet.'

Well, well, I will just leave it to you all to decide…

Sweet Dreams.

The Wind Of Change.



Hi my fellow practitioners,

They say that a picture tells a thousand words, so be it. He must have met a face reading expert or did he not?

Ha-ha, just joking, no offence. Anyway, feel like lazing around today to write anything. However, if you are feeling bored, you can google Master Joseph Yu blog on his views for liu-fa fengshui by T'an Yang Wu.

Till-then, cheers.
Have a nice lazy afternoon.

Sixth sense



Hi Folks,

As usual,

Two cowboys came upon an Indian lying on his stomach with his ear to the ground. One of the cowboys stops and says to the other, "You see that Indian?"

"Yeah," says the other cowboy.

"Look," says the first one, "He's listening to the ground. He can hear things for miles in any direction."

Just then the Indian looks up. "Covered wagon," he says, "About two miles away. Have two horses, one brown, one white. Man, woman, child, furniture in wagon ..."

"Incredible!" says the cowboy to his friend. "This Indian knows how far away they are, how many horses, what color, what's in the wagon -- just amazing!"

The Indian looks up and says, "Ugh ... not amazing ... wagon ran ... over me ... 30 minutes ago!"


Let’s look at what today has in stall for Mr.Obama for symbolic stars in Bazi. Ain’t got the time for a Purple Star Astrology analysis, ha-ha, my apologies.

It’s not the trend that are looking good for him that I am supporting him to be the president.

Don’t bother to analyse Mr. McCain’s birth chart as I have says in my earlier posts in September for Shen-sha in Bazi, and Interferences for Zi Wei Astrology on Mr. Obama birth-chart. The sword did move in September, seeing a major economic crisis or disaster for United States which is in his destiny not saying that he caused it as the mortgage crisis have been there all the while brewing and waiting to explode at the right time.

He is supposed to be in Heaven Void in this month of Xu, which is inauspicious however his ten year luck pillar of Xin and Mao, the earthly branch which could have combine with the Xu branch to remove the void, is it possible? If the void is still there, it would have meant an empty or fruitless month.

Today, he meets his nobleman star Shen which has a partial triple clash with Si in his day pillar and can it push up a invisible Yin like tri-combinations removing the Heaven Void? Ha-ha, just wondering? Shen is also his Death star which if favorable indicates courage and ability in planning. His Year pillar meets the Gold Carriage Star, Happiness Star and Dragon Virtue Star in Shen indicating him bringing glory to his ancestors. But most of all, importantly, he meets the Nobleman Star on this crucial day. Therefore, to conclude, I forsee a landslide victory for him.

Congratulations, Mr. Obama.

Oops, what is going to happens to the world stock indexes tomorrow?

Till-then, cheerio!!!

Do you tilt like him?

Please click on pics.




Hi Folks,

What a nice lazy Saturday afternoon, reminds me of this song.



Anyway, let's carry on with Fung Sui, yeah?

An introduction to a famous entity in Singapore.

‘The Venerable Sek Hong Choon, a well -known monk in the Malay Archipelago.

Venerable Sek was born in 1907 (2nd Age), came to Singapore in 1938, thereafter went to Penang in 1943 to be the abbot of Mio Hiong Lim Temple where he met Wu-Chang Sect Geomancy Grand Master Yu Xi-yin. This chance encounter made the Grand Master accept the Venerable as his selected disciple to impart the Xuan Kong geomancy theories.

Therefore in 1965, Venerable Sek officially returned to Singapore to take charge of the building of Phor Kark See Temple. Venerable Sek Hong Choon devoted his time to the Buddhist faith. It is a great loss that he did not impart his geomancy skills to any of his close disciples or they were not interested in the material gains’

Quote courtesy of Master Victor Li from Hongkong, part of it edited by me.

Now today, let’s look at tilting of doors from an example from Raymond Lo’s book of Feng Shui Essentials.

Here, he gave an example of Venerable Hong Choon audit for Hyatt Hotel.
For flying star chart to go along, you have to do the plotting yourself. It is facing NW1, Xu or 戌 at Age 6.

Here it goes,

‘In Singapore, there is a very famous feng shui story about the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Scott’s Road. This is an ‘Age of 6’ building with front facing northwest 1.

The main entrance in the NW has water star 8, which is good but it is “future prosperity” during Age of 6. So its effect is slow. Hence the hotel did not enjoy good business when it was opened in the sixties. The most prosperous star at that time is water star 6 which is located at the back of the building at SE sector. And the other prosperous water star 7 was trapped in the centre. So the local management decided to try Feng Shui. They engaged a famous monk called “Master Hon Chuen” and he is a Flying star practitioner under the lineage of Master Tham {or some refer to as Master T’an Yang Wu of Liu-Fa Fengshui,}

It is said that since Master Hon Chuen recommended some feng shui changes, the hotel suddenly gained prosperity and maintained good business until today.

What has Master Hon Chuen done to the Hotel? The most obvious is that he changed the angle of the doors at the main entrance. The entrance was facing NW1, he turn all the doors to 45%. That means all the door now faces N1.

If we look at the flying star chart of “Age of 6” building facing N1, we will easily understand why he did this. By turning the doors to face N1, the doors will get water star 6 energy which is exactly what is needed at that time. Besides this, he also put a water fountain in the entrance, and this is to activated the good water star energy in the NW. Since then, the hotel have been very prosperous until today. What about Age of 7 and 8 ?
We must not forget that the main entrance is still in the NW location with water star 8 in the flying star chart for the building and star 8 now takes over to continue the prosperity of the Hotel for both periods.’

That's all, folk.

Have a lazy afternoon.
Cheers.

An American Dream

Bears and Bulls




A Blind Man In Texas


There once was a blind man who decided to visit Texas. When he arrived on the plane, he felt the seats and said, “Wow, these seats are big!” The person next to him answered, “Everything is big in Texas.”

When he finally arrived in Texas, he decided to visit a bar. Upon arriving in the bar, he ordered a beer and got a mug placed between his hands. He exclaimed, “Wow these mugs are big!” The bartender replied, “Everything is big in Texas.”

After a couple of beers, the blind man asked the bartender where the bathroom was located. The bartender replied, “Second door to the right.” The blind man headed for the bathroom, but accidentally tripped over and skipped the second door. Instead, he entered the third door, which lead to the swimming pool and fell into the pool by accident.

Scared to death, the blind man started shouting, “Don’t flush, don’t flush!”




I' m hibernating....

Nothing to fear




Can’t think of what to write today. Ha-ha, not to worry, thanks, I’ m not affected by the present economic gloom. For those affected, not to worry too much, since you’re already there, prepare for war.

As in Sun Tzi Art of War, do you have enough provision to fight it on? No, then retreat if you have sufficient provisions to fight another day. Zero provision, then accept the reality of defeat and your wrong decision. Start anew, how? Let me tell you a story,

Three month ago, I had done a fengshui audit for a young chap in his thirties through affinity.I am old, Man, ha-ha. He is an IT engineer with financial, work and family problems. After doing his birth chart analysis and seeing that he is in Heaven Void and also in unfavorable luck cycle which he would not understand, and therefore had told him simply that he is in a bad luck cycle for 2 years starting last year. He then agreed, saying he had started a business in computer gaming for his wife in his goodwill to occupy her time and also hoping to have an additional income. However, the business flop in 6 months and he lost about 200K which he had taken in credit from banks and now is laden with debt. Workwise, he have problems with his junior staff who were out to sabotage him in his mind. Family problems arise with him blaming the wife for not following his wishes of running the business as she would sometimes go to the shop and sometimes not, the shop would be closed.. Wife also blaming him for changing the normal lifestyle they have initially which was comfortable and which I will agreed. Of course, in an audit, we are not out to create further problems for the client but to analyse the situation and gives our 2 cents worth.

Let’s look at his house fengshui first, without making it complicated. He is sleeping in a star 5 room. No choice as most pre-designed HDB flats do not give ones the luxury of choosing a master bedroom with good stars. Told him to put a string of six coins there which he dutifully did. Next told him to put a water fountain at the hall for water star 8 but met with problems with objections from the wife. Two weeks later, with a lot of frustrations from problems, sms me ( I don’t take phone calls, ha-ha) to say he feels like divorcing his wife which he feels is creating the present obstacles in his life. I had then sms him : ‘Try to reconcile’ at which he still sms back :’Why?’ I had then cannot just because the wife had objected to my suggestion of putting a mini water fountain and to consolidate his belief in my so-called power in his mind associated with fengshui practitioner, to encourage him or to disparage the wife. I then just sms him back ‘What about your lovable 2 year old daughter?’ I am not that kind of Holy, you know to spend some more time to check his wife’s merits to give him another view, me BAD.

After not hearing from him for a month, he sms me : ‘Urgent, need to call you.’ At which I then sms back: ‘Ok’ sensing the urgency, don't ssk me how I know. He then start telling me that he feels like giving up on himself and contemplating suicide due to his debts with debt collector harassing him. I , of course, first being curious about the cure I recommended for his bedroom for star 5, had then asked further whether there was any recent change in his life. At which, he then replied that his superior had transfer him to another department which he is much happier now with the junior staff having no communication problems and he has less stress now.In my mind, I was then wondering what did water star 5 got to do with career? He then start asking if there is a way of making him suddenly have some money to solve the problems as he claims that with his take home pay, after paying debts, he worries that sometimes he might not even have money to pay for baby foods. Even the wife now has to chip in by taking up a part-time job at which he was also unhappy as he was worried that a third party would come in. I had then ask: ‘I thought you weren’t bother about your wife and wanted to divorce her for being a jink?’ He then kept quiet about it.

About wealth enhancer for fengshui, we are not magicians, right? Sound like we are getting to be more of a counselor and not CON sultant as one practioner had indicated in his blog I then asked him frankly who was the one who decided this course of action to start a business, his wife? Does she have the money to decide about it? So who will have to pay the price for the mistake?. We have to accept our own mistakes at times and look at possible solutions. I had then told him another story of a client of mine who was a millionaire which unfortunately I had met while he was in shit. Don’t know why I can’t still get referrals like Bill Gates or Li Ka Shing, not for money but for my portfolio so that I can, in the local slang, action a bit, ha-ha. I then told him if a millionaire like this guy can just file for bankruptcy, what is pride? It’s not end of the world yet, right? “Take this course of action. At least your income is protected to maintain your family expenditure and you have no worries with your baby food. We Singaporean have a lot of value in mind of the declining population and our government sure will take care of us." Mind here, I’ m not encouraging anybody to do that, ha-ha. Or then maybe, he was hoping for a miracle from me which is not possible right? Now after a month, still got no news from him and so should be good-news. Now tonight thinking about it after all, a Bank like Lehman Brothers can file for protection under the Bankruptcy Act, what about us?

Hope I’ m not a bad guy in your minds.

Sweet Dreams, why sweet, ha-ha, don’t ask me….

Who should be responsible?



Hi all,

As usual,

Looking at solutions,

There was an engineer, manager, programmer and a driver, going down a steep mountain road.

The brakes failed and the car careened down the road out of control.

Half way down, the driver managed to stop the car by running it against the embankment narrowing avoiding going over a cliff.

They all got out, shaken by their narrow escape from death, but otherwise unharmed.

The manager said "To fix this problem we need to organize a committee, have meetings, and through a process of continuous improvement, develop a solution."

The engineer said "No that would take too long, and besides that method never worked before. I have my trusty pen knife here and will take apart the brake system, isolate the problem and correct it."

The programmer said "I think you're both wrong! I think we should all push the car back up the hill, drive down and see if it happens again."

Some quotes about perceptions,

“If people from Poland are called "Poles," why aren't people from Holland called "Holes?"

"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I Do," is the longest sentence?

Ha-ha, nah, I’ m not changing my blog theme on metaphysics.. Just to protect myself from negative vibes with some humour, copied elsewhere, where else?

As usual,



Anyway, about what we can learn from dogs (also copied, ha-ha), to end the day.

If a dog were your teacher you would learn stuff like...

- When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

- Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.

- Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

- When it's in your best interest -- practice obedience.

- Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

- Take naps and stretch before rising.

- Run, romp, and play daily.

- Thrive on attention and let people touch you.

- Avoid biting, when a simple growl will do.

- On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.

- On hot days, drink lots of water and lay under a shady tree.

- When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.

- No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing and pout... run right back and make friends.

- Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.

- Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have had enough.

- Be loyal.

- Never pretend to be something you're not.

- If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

- When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by and nuzzle them gently.

Ha-ha, good-night.

It can't be worse, right?

Communication



As usual,

A bachelor who lived at home with his mother and pet cat went on a trip to Europe. Before he left he told his best friend to inform him of any emergencies.

A few days after his departure, his cat climbed up on the roof, fell off and was killed. His friend immediately wired him with the message: "Your cat died!"

In a few hours he was back home, having cut short his trip in grief and anger at his friend, whom he told "Why didn't you break the news to me gradually? You know how close I was to my cat! You could have sent a message 'Your cat climbed up on the roof today', and the next day you could've written, 'Your cat fell off the roof' and let me know slowly that he had died."

After a quick memorial service, the bachelor left again to continue his trip. A few days later he returned to his hotel and there was a message waiting for him from his friend. It read, "Your mother climbed up on the roof today."

Ha-ha,




Finally our dear friend, Master Tony Tan of Harmony Academy of Metaphysics is back with his posting of the Zi-Wei Astrology in a forum.

www.fivearts.net/index.php?referredby=537

Here it goes,

Tiantong is one of the two Major Stars that are well liked by the traditional Chinese society because it is peaceful and non-antagonising. It is of Yang Water and it represents blessings, or blessedness. The other Major Star that gets all the praises is Tianfu the Finance Minister. In a feudal society, an element in the society must be conforming and not rebellious. Tiantong the Contentment Star is not so much about being a conformist, but it definitely is easy going.

For the 14 Major Stars other than Taiyang the Sun and Taiyin the Moon, which need no explanation in their names, I have preferred to personify the rest when giving them English names. However, out of the twelve stars, there are four that are not easy to do it. If I were to stick with naming Tiantong as an officer, it can be likened to one who takes charge of dining and entertainment for the Emperor. Obviously, there is no common name in English for such an appointment, but from the description, it will help one to remember that Tiantong is about going for fine taste and pleasure in life, and not about fighting for achievements in life, or to conquer life. And, by adding the English word contentment, one would have a good grasp of its basic traits.

Basically, Tiantong the Contentment Star is the least driven to go for high achievements in life, unless what the person enjoys doing much does provide room for achievement. This implies that a Tiantong person has to go into trades that he/she loves in the first place. It could be food and beverages, hospitality trades, beauty trades, the music industry, and so on, and I realise that an area in the modern world could allow many young Tiantong people to be accommodated: the computer gaming industry.

Some classic texts described a Tiantong structure that is placed with Lucun the Treasurer and Hualu the Flow Enhancer as excellent. I beg to differ, if it is not a structure that comes with Tiankui and Tianyue, the pair of Auspicious Stars that brings great opportunities. If Tiantong the Contentment Star person is blessed with double Lu (Lucun and Hualu) but not Tiankui and Tianyue, the subject can become too indulgent in emotions and hobbies, without determination or any fighting spirit. Rather, it is good to have an Adverse Star in its structure to provide it with stimulant and drive. Alternatively, a better Tiantong is one that is attached with Huaquan the Power Enhancer, and the combination makes a person more pragmatic.

A special feature of Tiantong when it is placed in the Self/Wealth/Career Triangle (Sanfang) is that there are many chances in life to strike out into some hobby business from scratch, and I call it the start-anew nature.

In interpersonal relationship domains, the blessedness of Tiantong indicates generally good bonding with the counterparts, except in Love Domain, where its start-anew nature may also rule, suggesting bad omen for marriage. Thus, Tiantong the Contentment Star in Love Domain does not give a straightforward analysis.

The Future



Hello folks,

I'm sounding positive, right?

To concluded on 铁板神数, the essence lies in constructing the correct hexagrams with which you then use mathematics to work out the relevant prose from the compendium, the numbers of which you want to use based on how far you want to go. The best part was that I couldn’t figure out how the sequences derived could actually be so accurate. For instances, there are prose like there is a ‘sword mishap’, at aged 67 which if you use Zi Ping analysis on the birth-chart , you find that symbolic stars yang ren or the sword is there And like 先天数定…有刑at age 54, there is a clash of Tai-Sui in that year. So I’m really full of admirations to the one who invented this system of analysis with 12,000 proses to go with arithmetic using the abacus derived from the four pillars chart. Kudos.

The best part was out of 40 prose that I get, e.g. not talking about the future, the past events, out of ten, nine are correct and most of the time, it’s a perfect ten. There are also Zi Wei terms 太阳相照好事……The Tai Yang Star in Zi Wei Astrology, in some of the prose which coincide accurately with the birth-chart. The possibility of a sequence of numbers which can match with the 12,000 prose or of which some is missing is really baffling to me. I just can’t kind of, but what the heck, still can't break it..

Accordingly, to some authors, it’s a group of destiny analysts or enthusiasts who came out with this system analysis, not an individual. . Don’t mind me being all gushed with it, it’s not, but I had a bet with that master that if I can’t break his formula within 5 years, ha-ha….too embarrassing to bring it up here. Anyway, 2010 still got some time, hee-hee. But to be frank, I had already rest my case, ooh. Waiting for punishment, ha-ha, 永不是太山 or it is correct, my writing in chinese, ha-ha ( I think in English, it means life in the jungle never see a city before, ha-ha.). Forgot to let u all know, apart from math, Chinese as my 2nd language was the last in my school days, ha-ha….

That’s all, folks, for my views on this destiny analysis.

Abacus



Hello to my fellows practitioners, got to sound more positive to cope with the world negative energy now, ha-ha. XKDG.


Of my views, for 铁板神数 or Iron Abacus Divination.

Yes, it works though there are some books written on it by masters disputing it apart from other researchers too. This is because the problem with this analysis is most of them start with what you call考六亲 or 考时刻whereby practically almost all information on the relationships of the subject’s life is provided by the subject himself to the analyst.

E.g., the questions would start where the analyst would calculate on the abacus and comes out with a number and refer to the thirteen volumes and ask: ‘Your dad passed away in a Water Year.’ Or ‘Brother One only’, is it? And with this information and a lot others provided or confirmed by the client in an hour or so, and you know some people also yaks a lot and give away personal informations without realizing it. The analyst would then tell you to come back for a second meeting which has been implied before consultation that it is necessary, where then the analyst would hand the results to the client. If you are unable to do or co-operate, most of the time, he would tell you, he can’t do it as he needs to verify the Trigram Qi for 考时刻 and there are three hexagrams needed to do an analysis. Some masters would need only two for your information.

The arguments by skeptical reputed masters is logical that since most of the answers are already provided, the analyst with strong foundations of knowledge in Bazi or Zi Wei astrology would then use relevant prose from the compendium and gives you the analysis. There are altogether 12,000 prose and logic is that it is easy to pick about 20 to 40 situations for analysis after using Zi Ping or other analysis depending on whether you like the client or not and gives him the value for it, ha-ha. So they deemed it as a fraud by analysts to make it legitimate and mysterious to get more money out of the client. Most Bazi or Zi Wei life analysis costs only at the most, a few of hundreds and not thousands.. These are quotes from some of the books, so kindly don’t provoke anybody to sue me, ha-ha. It became worse when some new schools came out using Zi Wei with it rendering it more implausible. As a book by a master had implied, Zi Wei Astrology is itself an complete art of destiny and by taking 8 domains of it to form a Bagua and incorporate it into Iron Abacus Divination makes no senses and justice to both systems. And as till today, nobody still can validates its originality for Iron Abacus Divination as the handed down texts had also started its own evolution from the masters with some verses added or corrected and certain terms changed. Another author had then commented that the beauty in some of the missing flowery prose in the volumes is that as man progress, new circumstances would have to be added in for divinations to keep up with progress thus the reasons for these blanks in the volumes to be filled as time goes by.

I had, however, the affinity to meet a master who surprisingly is not interested in materials gains three years ago. I then found out that you need a real master to give you the oral enlightenment, if not you would be lost in the maze of all the different sects theories and the mathematics.. But I won’t go further on that as this is strictly restricted based on my commitment to that master who wouldn’t want to be known. It’s not for any selfish purpose, but it’s really called the ‘Tian-shu’ or ‘Heaven’s Secret’. It can really tells you when you or loved ones have to say ’Bye-bye’ as well as a lot of other event accurately. That’s why some rich people are willing to pay so much for it. But so what, knowing it, would it make your life better? Or worse, making you loses your meanings in life. To be frank, after knowing it, I don’t know what‘s the purpose for having this analysis was. It is called 铁板 or Fixed (hidden image meanings in Chinese), meaning you can’t change it so what’s the point of knowing it. I had initially go thru the regime of what some analysts do and found it too tedious and comical especially the 考六亲 which had result in creating strong critics of this analysis. The regime of taking 2 weeks also sounds logical to drum up more money, ha-ha, and my admiration to the one who thought of it. Or maybe, as I still practice it off and on to see whether I have missed out on any value in the above mentioned method. The other method that I have been taught doesn’t have to go thru all this routine of being questioned and matching out eighty prose, it can be work out instead of 2 weeks in about an hour or two or so using mathematics. Suits me, believed me, I am a very lazy person and with mathematics, hah. But then, I doubt anybody would want to pay so much for a reading, ha-hah. After testing it on my own birth-chart a few years back, I really had to salute the unknown person who came out with this system of divination for destiny. As one master had commended, the beauty of it lies in 数 and not 神. It is the beauty of mathematics which I had once hated in my childhood. It’s like the film, ‘’A beautiful mind’ about a mathematics Nobel winner but he had suffer from a mental problem for many years before recovering and then only getting the award, no wonder there are so few of these masters promoting this art. Anyway, don’t write it off; if one of these days, you have the affinity to learn it, you would see the beauty of it, ha-ha…

Can destiny be changed without affecting Karma?

Till-then, a good day. Ha-ha, if you ask me what’s good about it? I won’t know either, ha-ha-hah.

As usual,

If you are lost with these jargons, don't worry, I will be switching back to Purple Star Astrology.

A story about higher education,

A dog is so smart that his master decides to send him to college.

Home for vacation, his master asks him how college is going.

"Well", says the dog, "I'm not doing too great in science and math, but I have made a lot of progress in foreign languages."

"Really!" says the master. "Say something in a foreign language."

The dog says, "Meow ! "

About Politics



Ha-ha, I'm kind of tired tonight, ain't got anything to contribute.

As usual, copying.

Post Turtle

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, whose hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to one of the political candidates.

The old rancher said, "Well, ya know, that candidate is a 'Post Turtle'".

Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle' was.

The old rancher said, "When you're driving down a country road you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a 'post turtle'".

The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain.

"You know they didn't get up there by themselves, they don't belong up there, and they don't know what to do while they're up there, and you just wonder what kind of dummy put them up there to begin with".

Ha-ha, for those affected by the recent gloom, no offence.

As Usual,

Iron Abacus Divination

My Abacus, Ha-ha.



As usual,




Ha-ha,

At the moment for the economy, It sure looks like a Zoo,

Sorry folks, MIA, kind of busy lately, got back into my habit of practicing 铁叛神数, which I have stop for about a year or so as I find it too tedious, probably one of the reasons why those master charged so much for a reading and also giving myself some holidays.. Took up a lot of my time, as an analysis involved working out at least eighty flowery proses onwards to conclude an analysis (about 2 weeks time required at least). Luckily,got some enlightenment on all the 'Old Mcdonald's has a farm... Eyah Eyah O'. No offence to any master, my apologies if there is.

Talking about it, another story, Two football players were taking an important final exam. If they failed, they would be on academic probation and not allowed to play in the big game the following week. The exam was fill-in-the-blank.

The last question read, "Old MacDonald had a _______."

Bubba was stumped. He had no idea what to answer. But he knew he needed to get this one right to be sure he passed.

Making sure the professor wasn't watching, he tapped Tiny on the shoulder. "Pssst. Tiny. What's the answer to the last question?" Tiny laughed. He looked around to make sure the professor hadn't noticed then he turned to Bubba.

"Bubba, you're so stupid. Everyone knows Old MacDonald had a FARM."

"Oh yeah," said Bubba. "I remember now." He picked up his No. 2 pencil and started to write the answer in the blank. He stopped. Tapping Tiny's shoulder again, he whispered, "Tiny, how do you spell farm?"

"You are really dumb, Bubba. That's so easy. Farm is spelled E-I-E-I-O."

Thought it would also be a good idea to improve my mathematics, I sure hate maths in my school days. Now that I have realized that it is important that you need to know, at least, how much money you have been left with to survive, ha-ha…… nothing to do with my EPL betting on Saturday. Also trying to do some attitude changes, sometimes there are things we don’t like in Life but we sure still have to go along with it and surprise, Life gets better!

Also trying to figure out from books by other practioners on what I have been taught is correct or wrong. Never take things for granted, right? Ha –ha, no offence to the one who taught me, in his good-will.

Don’t worry if you don’t know this art of destiny analysis, Ba-Zi or Zi-Wei astrology would suffice if you are able to reach a certain level. It’s the same with Liu Fa Fengshui, Flying Stars or Eight Mansion. As long as it works, it’s ok unless it doesn’t work. Then you have to figure out what went wrong. End of the day, it would still depend on our affinity with the masters and your own EQ. For Iron Abacus Divinations, it has the interesting point that there is a question mark on its origins as most master can’t agree from whom it originates from.

Sound fishy to some master which use it as a point of debate. Sun Tzi Art of War which suprisngly also has a similar background but still make sense of its tactics for situational use.. However, I found it interesting as a few years back, there was a local Mediacorp program or TV drama aired that shows a master at work, can’t remember the title. That’s where I got intrigued with the protrayed master doing it in all the woo and wah style, not that I believed it. I then just want to quench my curiosity as another HKTVB ( HongKong TV Drama) has a theme on it , I think the title is something like Encounters with Mr.Vampire, it was called the Tian-Shu.(Heaven’s Secret). Ha-ha, hope it will not affect my karma if I will to use it. Just joking, as my philosophy that if it is to help a really Needy Person, I will gain merits instead.

Well, that’s all for tonite. We will peruse it further the next time. Appreciated if you practitioners are on board.

As usual,

EPL




Ah, it's Saturday again.
Time for some EPL actions, I means some small bets to see whether my wealth luck in my chart is still there, ha-ha... Not encouraging any gambling here.

A football story,

Two guys are talking about their boss's upcoming wedding.

One says, "It's ridiculous, he's rich, but he's 93 years old, and she's just 26! What kind of a wedding is that?"

The other says, "Well, we actually have a name for it in my family."

"What do you call it?"

"We call it a football wedding."

The first asks, "What's a football wedding?"

The other says, "She's waiting for him to kick off!"

Anyway, I had enjoyed my Friday, reading the new book recommended by Master Howard Choy on Liu Fa Fengshui written by .....



Also admiring the hard-cover, sure worth it. Clear a lot of the hidden meanings in the Xuan Kong Ben Yi by T'an Yang Wu.

Lost Innocence



All of us still have a child mentality at times. Reminds one of the Tian Tong Star or The Waif.

Kids and environmental conditioning.

The teacher says to her new class, "For our first lesson, each of you will stand up, tell us your name, what your father does, spell what your father does, and then explain it to us. All right, Billy. You go first."

Billy stands up and says, "My name's Billy. My father's a lawyer, l-a-w-y-e-r, and he defends people in court."

The teacher says, "Very good. All right, Benjamin."

Tyrone stands up and says, "My name's Benjamin. My father's a pharmacist, f-a-m... f-a-r-n... f-n..."

The teacher says, "Benjamin, you go home tonight and learn how to spell pharmacist. All right, Angelo."

Angelo stands up and says, "My name's Angelo. My old man's a bookie, b-o-o-k-i-e, and if he was here, he'd give you nine-to-five odds Benjamin ain't spellin' pharmacist by tomorrow."

Ha-ha, yesterday was Children's Day and I hereby wishes all the best for readers who got kids.

My song for that day, an hour or so ago.

Liu Fa for Fengshui



Latest news about the economic turmoils from a news report, ha-ha...

Wall Street firms pays $200B against future crimes

In what both sides called "a landmark deal," the top ten Wall Street investment firms have agreed to pay a $200 billion "advance against future crimes" to the State of New York, enabling the firms to commit up to 300 new crimes a year, according to the Borowitz Report.

In view of the gloom, let's see what $2 can buy now,

A pediatrician asked six-year-old Johnny, who watched a good many TV, adds, just to make conversation.

"Johnny, if you found a couple of dollars and had to spend them, what would you buy?"

"A box of Tampax," he replied without hesitation.

"Tampax?" said the doctor. "What would you do with that?"

"Well," said Johnny, "I do not know exactly, but it's sure worth two dollars. With tampax, it says on TV, you can go swimming, go horseback riding, and also go skating, any time you want to."

Well, Life would still have still to go on for people like us...

Now, interestingly, got a e-mail today from another of my groups in Yahoo, Master Howard Choy have recommended a book on Liu-Fa for fengshui written by a Taiwanese Master. Thanks Master Choy.

The quote:

'A new book written in Chinese by Lin Zhi-Rong 林志榮, a Taiwanese Feng Shui master has just came on the market, showing how Master Tan Yuan-Wu’s 談養吾 Xuan Kong Liu Fa 玄空六法 works in theory and in practice.

At the end of the book, he gave three work samples and I found one of them particularly interesting from a FS architect point of view, because he first amended the original design in a sensible way and then use the Liqi theories to support his redesign.

Below showed the work sample in question and if we look at them carefully we can see the core idea of Liu Fa is to “fen ci xiong” 分雌雄 and “na sheng qi” 納生氣 of the period by paying special attentions to the location of the Ling Shen and Zheng Shen for timeliness by lining up the furniture, windows and doors. The concept of “one item, one Taiji” is also evident at work and once the principles, and there are six of them are known, the applications are relatively easy to carry out.'

Argh, that's means tommorow, I would have to go around again in bookstores looking for the book, would you?

Well, a song from ELO, a German group who sings in perfect English, well, we would need some Strange Magic, ha-ha... from us?



Ha-ha, good-nite!

Lian Zhen or The Politician



This is the last major star in the North group of stars in Purple star astrology. And the English translation is just a general one; this star could also refer to a ladies’ man, or a person who sure knows how to take advantage of another’s predicament and etc. Overall, sounds bad in ethics. Characteristic, got a cheeky look and is a good talker who can talk himself out of any situations.
Lately, one of my favorite drama which I’m watching in TV, is a Chinese classic : The Duke of Mount Deer which has a similar character protrayed.

Ha-ha, don’t worry if you have the star as you still have to look into other stars with it in the relevant palace. Normally this star comes with power play. And a combination with the right ones means an exciting life. It is a Peach Blossom stars second to Tan Lang. Sounds good for guys however, its weakness is being easily attracted to the opposite sex thus could be its downfall. If it meet with Tian Fu, Tian Xiang, Zuo Fu and You Bi, you will achieved high authority and fame. ’ More Women, No Cry.’ Remember our dear friend whose wife is lately in the limelight in Politics. Don’t tell me his chart doesn’t look like that, he probably doesn’t know his birth-time, ok…

However this star with the Qi-Sha star has a dangerous pattern if it meet up with Hua Ji since the Zi Wei text states : ‘ Qi Sha Lian Zhen means buried on the roads ‘ in addition to meeting Qing Yang , the Sword or Tuo Lo the Humpback would means meeting blood mishaps or dying in a foreign land. This star is always associated with Blood. Its element is Yin Fire By the way, Yang Ren or Qing Yang is the same name for the Sword star.Sound gloomy? Good news, as in the ying and yang, a chart pattern with these two stars combinations with the three positive influence of Lu, Quan and Ke will bring great wealth and status. So as with the bad times, there are the good ones.

Ok, with so many unfamiliar names brought up, this is a glossary of the terms:

Stars of the Southern group series.

Tian Fu – The Financier
Tian Xiang – The Seal or Endorsement
Tan Lang- Romeo or The Entertainer
Qi Sha? can't think of a suitable name yet, can be a good guy or baddie...

Positive Sub-stars:

Zuo Fu- Left assistant
You Bi- Right assistant.

Negative stars:

Tuo Lou– The Humpback

Yang Ren – The Sword

A song Lian Zhen would use if asked to buy the F1 Grand Prix tickets in Singapore tonight.



Woosh, F1 sounds, ha-ha....

About Frogs

Too tired for anything else, rushed back after an audit in Johor for an appointment but could'nt make it. At least I' m trying to clear my clutters in Life, what about you?

As usual,

A sister and brother are talking to each other when the little boy gets up and walks over to his Grandpa and says, "Grandpa, please make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "No."

The little boy goes on, "Please...please make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "No, now go and play."

The little boy then says to his sister, "Go tell Grandpa to make a frog noise."

So the little girl goes to her Grandpa and says, "Please make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "I just told your brother 'no' and I'm telling you 'no'."

The little girl says, "Please...please Grandpa make a frog noise."

The Grandpa says, "Why do you want me to make a frog noise?"

The little girl replied, "Because mommy said when you croak we can go to Disney World!"

As usual,


Sweet Dreams....

铁版神数

Iron Abacus Divination






By the way, for readers unfamiliar with this destiny analysis, this is a method used with an abacus and a compendium, with 13 chapters with supposedly twelve thousand flowery proses or verses as some are missing for a reason. It’s quite taxing as you have to first work out the hexagram for two gua from early heaven arrangement incorporated with late heaven arrangement from the birth-chart’s four pillars and then using mathematics to derive analysis as well as the changed hexagram to foresee changing circumstances. Apart from that, there are still a lot of other aspects you have to look into. On top of it, you need to have a strong foundation in Bazi and Zi Wei Dou Shu as well as the Yi-Jing.

Expect to pay between HK50,000 dollars onwards for a reading in Hong Kong. However, if you were to go to China and have the affinity to meet one such master in the rural province, it's cheaper, about 300 remminbi onwards.

Ironically, three years ago, there were practitioners incorporating Zi Wei and Zi Ping with this analysis which was wrong accordingly to a North school practitioner in this field.
Back then and now, it is a practice to incorporate 8 palaces or domains of Zi-wei for divination among these cetain schools.

This is how a actual Tie Ban readings would look like.



Dying Unhappiness

A businessman on his deathbed called his friend and said, "Bill, I want you to promise me that when I die you will have my remains cremated."

"And what," his friend asked, "do you want me to do with your ashes?"

The businessman said, "Just put them in an envelope and mail them to the Internal Revenue Service and write on the envelope, 'Now you have everything.'"

A Better Tomorrow.



Good-night.

Peter Pan

Tian Tong or The Waif



Back to the future with Zi-wei tonite. Haha, this star reminds one of Peter Pan. Did you know in one favorite chinese classics, 'Condor Hero' or 'The Brave Archer', there is a similar character which however had a sad background.

This is a star that sure learn how to relax and maintain a youthful appearances regardless male or female. They don't like suntan and are normally round shape, ha-ha, just kidding, I means chubby and fair-looking. However, it is a lazy star and accordingly to the classics, the three good influence would not make much good out of him especially, the Lu star. Surprisingly, the Ji star would make him a better man or give him a better attitude in life. Apparently, he needs to be motivated with hardships. All-in, I have not found any major disaster linked with him in encounter with the Ji star. However for health, it represent the kidney and liver so when it meet yang ren (The sword) or Hua Ji, it's better to take more care into this areas. If the star is in the spouse palace when it meets adverse stars, there would bound to be verbal frictions and tolerance would be needed for the couple. For ladies, if it meets up with Wen-chang and Wen-Qu. it normally denotes a good-looking lady with a fine taste in the Arts. Its element is that of Yang Water.

From what I see, having this star in the Parents domain would be the best. Won't know about you, ha-ha.



Good-nite.
