Feng Shui


feng shui



Joey Yap

I don't actually believe in feng shui but I am keen to read about it. I used to surf the net regarding it by Lilian Too and Joey Yap.

Well, one interesting fact was about the toilet. Toilet shouldn't be above the main door. Otherwise, all the luck would be flushed away.

So, when my family shifted to our new double-storey terrace house in 2000, I realised that the master's bedroom toilet was just above the main door.

Since I was a little influenced by feng shui, I decided to use the sliding door instead as our main entrance. The main door is kept closed till now.

I had been to several show houses and the first thing I liked to check was the main door. Some had good feng shui whereas some were ignorant.

Anyway, don't be overly-influenced by feng shui.

  1. Hi Wenn, I too have been reading about fung shui, and do follow some.
    That bathroom thing is true I guess as when anyone flush, its like flushing away our good karma, ha ha.

    And here any new condos being built, a master fung shui is called in to ensure good tidings.
    As well when advertised in the papers, it will be mentioned.

    Orang putehs her not only believe in fung shui but eat tau fu, drink Chinese green tea...ha ha....
    reason being the huge Chinese population here....
    like being in Singapore. Lee.

    I am a believer of Feng Shui but not a strong one of course. :p

  13. I don't believe in feng shui but it has some good "teaching". Can you imagine the toilet leaked and water sipped thru the concrete. Then the stain mark on the ceiling...it is probably smelly and ugly in sight.

  14. I don't know much about feng shui. I sure am glad I don't have a bathroom over the main door, though. I was worried you were going to say bathrooms shouldn't be above the main floor. We'd be in trouble then for sure.

  19. It's good to have some knowledge of feng shui. At least when you consult a feng shui master, you will know whether he/she is genuine or crap!

    And yes, don't be too obsessed with feng shui. But don't ignore it either. Taking the middle approach is best! : )

    I ignore my fengshui master's advice not to go traveling in August and see what happened! I injured myself in China! Well, lesson learnt but does not mean I'm any smarter the next time around. Haha!
