Ah, its again Sunday in Singapore, reminds me of Sunfowers so for today, lets look at colours as it is associated with New Age Fengshui. Does colours helps in improving the Fengshui of a property?
Before we go further, lets look at an artist where colours played an important part in his life, the darks colours in his dark moments and when the bright colours in his arts enriches his life. Ha-ha, no pun intended.
'Vincent Willem van Gogh[pronunciation 1] (30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th century art for its vivid colors and emotional impact. He suffered from anxiety and increasingly frequent bouts of mental illness throughout his life, and died largely unknown, at the age of 37, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
On March 31, 1987, even those without interest in art were made aware of van Gogh's Sunflowers series when Japanese insurance magnate Yasuo Goto paid the equivalent of US $39,921,750 for Van Gogh's Still Life: Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers at auction at Christie's London, at the time a record-setting amount for a work of art. The price was over four times the previous record of about $12 million paid for Andrea Mantegna's Adoration of the Magi in 1985. The record was broken a few months later with the purchase of another Van Gogh, Irises, by Alan Bond for $53.9 million at Sotheby's, New York on November 11, 1987.'
Now that's pretty a lot of money for colours, as for fengshui, you decided, ha-ha..
A tip: what you see as plain light comes out with rainbow colours when it goes through a prism.
To be frank, most of the traditional fengshui masters that I have engaged so far believes that colours only plays a part of 10% in improving Fengshui. Yes, I do engaged fengshui masters to do audit for my client or for my own property to learn more as they are not on their guard when explaining to me their fengshui techniques to me. But then not all masters are that generous or open mind. Of course, it helps that I' m keeping a hidden profile in the metaphysics world, an advantage. The latest was a liu fa master that I had engaged for a confusing 4th storey apartment with misleading facades.
I had already establish the facing of the apartment with acid test on the history of the client staying there. He gave the correct facing as the one I have established, very impressive to me as it had taken me a longer time to work it out. However in Liu Fa Fengshui, he uses the True North and end up with the sitting position at 45 degrees compared to the one I have for San Yuan Flying star at 5 degrees. Hmm, did the Earth movement deviates so much on its axis over these millenniums.
Interestingly, he do not support the use of fengshui cures such a string of six coins as he said that what we have now comes from mass productions from factory. Neither does Pi-xiu or Qi-lin, etc... Thought I had caught him when he proposes putting a Elephant or a Round Metal Ball at the North-West Sector.
Putting on a innocent look, I ask him: ' I thought you say fengshui ornaments is of not much use?'
He was then forced to explain: ' It is for Gua imagery from the Yi Jing if you know what I means....'.
Me:' Why put it here?' (Of course, I can't be too specific on why it is the North West Sector as I am just a clueless client).
Liu Fa Master: 'Well, this sector is rather weak and therefore have to be strengthened.'
LF Master: ' Anyway, your apartment have the wealth sector missing.'(refering to the missing corner His South East for the apartment)
Now in Liu Fa Fengshui, they uses the True North and they have a different method of working out the wealth sector unlike Flying Stars Schools. This missing wealth sector happen to have star 2 and 5 combination for flying star chart of the apartment. Anyway, after going through a few other cures of closing this area and opening up that area, Liu Fa techniques, he then told me to put three plants at my East sector (To him, that is South East) without telling me why. Do you know why? Ha-ha....you are not paying attention to my post if you don't.
Yawn, it sure is a lazy warm Sunday afternoon, let me have a break to enjoy it with a nice cold beer and some music before I come BACK.
Yap, I' m back. Now to carry on, water was prohibited in one of the bathroom smack in the centre of the apartment. Why? No explaination given. Guess he must be referring to Heaven's Heart. Interestingly, a washing machine is allowed there so I guess activity is allowed at the centre or Heaven's Heart. For the washing machine allowed there, try to figure it yourself, you will get it as I have already given you the clue on activity. Looks like the bathroom will have to be recycled into something else, ha-ha....
Next, some areas closed off interestingly is because of sha qi from outside. Happens to have a playground in front with three lamp post looking directly in. A bedroom was also closed off because it faces a 'Wind Gap' Sha activated by a train going by every 20 minutes interval on a rail on the same facing. Guess sound sha from vibration will be involved though sound travel slower than light, ha-ha...
Bedboard position at North West(San Yuan West). And finally yes, date picking for renovation works as the kitchen sink in the NE sector have to be relocated as water not allowed. ??? In Liu Fa, North East is the Ling Shen or Golden Dragon for trigram Zhen (Early Heaven) but this apartment happens to sit on NE.(this is based on True North Demarcations), in other words, as in Flying stars, reverse dragon or water dragon climb up to mountain. Interestingly, the mountain dragon could'nt drown as fortunately there is a 'Mountain' at the front facing. So I guess when he made the statement, 'Water not favorable for the house', might as well maximise Health. Ah, yes, date picking and recommended action to activate auspiciousness, knocking or drilling a must at the South East (San Yuan : East). Ooops, based on San Yuan or Magnetic East, Knocking on San Sha? Pretty confusing with True North involved.
Ha-ha, how? Hmm, will be back another time. The keyboard is getting to be a pain when I uses the laptop. Too lazy to unpack my desktop with its chinese software since last year, yawnnnnn...
P.S. Colours also given 10% influence by this master.

Happy Tiger Year, ha-ha, oops its Chinese I mean, not the one lost in the woods, ha-ha....I know, I know, its still early.... And its on surprise! Valentine Day.
To continue with the Tiger lost in the Woods,
-- At a cocktail party, one woman said to another, Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?" Yes, I am. I married the wrong man."
-- A lady inserted an 'ad' in the classifieds: "Husband Wanted". Next day she received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: "You can have mine."
-- When a woman steals your husband, there is no better revenge than to let her keep him.
-- A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?" Father replied, "I don't know son, I'm still paying."
-- Young son: "Is it true Dad, that in some parts of Africa a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?" Dad: "That happens in every country, son."
-- Just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.
Anyway, to carried on with Bazi
There is a posting by Devadog in my mentor forum at Singapore Fengshui Centre which bought to mind about the last time I said I would talk about the in-tomb stuff for earth element. Well here I am after being reminded : ). In his post, the chart belong to a Bing Fire Daymaster.
I have taken the liberty to put the chart here, ha-ha, hope you dun mind, Robert from New York.
Xin Bing Wu Wu
Mao Yin Wu Wu
Now to a Bing Daymaster, this Ox year which have not ended yet until Chinese New Year, Chou or Ox in Shen Sha or Angels and Demons in Bazi is refer to as the Dragon Virtue Star if Angel and Lonesome Star if Demon.The Chou as a symbolic star is based on having the Yin or Tiger in the Bazi Chart and coincidentally the Yin Ying Wood is in the Spouse Palace. Part definition of Lonesome Star:
'This unfavourable star may mean unfortunate events which may happen to his or her family making him or her lonely. A male person meeting the star will miss the spouse and vice versa. A woman with this star appearing on weak spouse star, marriage will not be lasting. Lonesome star on Heaven Void Star- Poverty at young age.' Taken from GM Koh 'Advanced Bazi Course.'
In the Chart, the Bing Daymaster meets this star during the Ox year and accordingly, the boyfriend was hospitalised during this time. Why it is named the Lonesome Star for Shen Sha in Bazi? Now all of you know that for a Bing Fire Master for female, the Zheng Guan or Proper Authority or Husband star is Gui Water which is stored in the Chou, Earth element. And if this Chou if it is in the Chart i.e. replacing the Wu or Horse month pillar, and meet Heavenly Stem Gui or Ren in the annual piilar or Tai Sui or in the Ten Year Luck Pillar,, it would mean the Husband star going into Tomb. And thus aptly, it is named the lonesome star in my personal opinion, subject to any objections of course, ha-ha..
There many opposition parties on the internet, you know for metaphysics.
Got to go, have an appointment, will carry on with this posting later.
As to whether it is a useful star or not will also depend on whether Chou is a favorable element. Anyway, Chou have a conflicted clash with the Wu Ying Fire, Earthly Branch in the Chart and to what that will work out to, I' ll let you find out soon from the Ongoing topic in the forum.
I'm Back. Can't wait to grill the Kurobuta Pork Chops that I have brought from the Japanese SuperMarket to try out the new recipe my Japanese Chef friend have given me for marinating, I' m not starting a cooking class or food connoisseur colum, ha-ha. You should be glad as I m waiting for two hours for the marinade to be absorbed by the meat before grilling. Bought a packet of Salmon Belly Sashimi to go along with a bottle of sake to give inspiration as I carry on blogging. Hey Man, I need to yak about myself sometime once in a while, right? Anyway, paid S$28 for this Kurobuta Pork Chop at a coffee shop in Holland Drive in this picture.
For review, you can go to http://www.ladyironchef.com/2009/06/25/big-d-grill-kurobuta-pork/
My, my, she sure is sexual. Part of the description 'You were great that night, I couldn’t help gaping at your assets; they were huge. I carefully took a small nibble to start our foreplay, I moved downwards and craved for more, I took bigger bites; it was good, but the thing was, I’m not sure whether that justified the high price I’m paying for.' HA-HA....
Anyway, try it out as I have never eaten it in a coffee shop and also to see how good it is and decided though it is good, the long trip up down ain't justified as it can be improved. Thought I might as well grill it myself and see if it can be improved though I ain't no cooking genius, let alone fry a proper sunny egg, ha-ha.
Ano,Chotto Sumimasen, leh please excuse for a while before I come BACK. Time to start to grill, ha-ha...
Well, well, I' m BACK.
Looks like a normal pork chop, ha-ha. Anyway, enjoys it more. Try one with the normal salt and pepper seasoning, taste like the one I had at Holland Drive. This is better. The so called recipe, miso paste, Japanese soyu sauce, and mirin. When it is almost brown, you then brush both side of the meat with Mayonnaise at the last grilling stage. Mmn, heavenly taste, regret wasting the other piece with the normal seasoning method. Argh....
Ha-ha, time for bed to let the stomach digest and enjoy the food. I know, I know, it's not healthy but why care? I live for the moment.
Thanks for keeping me company if you are around. ; )
