Feng shui masters make house buyers see the light
KUALA LUMPUR: When choosing a property, have a mountain at the back and water features in front, said Joey Yap.
“Mountains govern matters related to human relationships and longevity while water affects one’s financial health and growth,” said the fengshui master.
He advised homebuyers to look for properties with these features to enjoy their benefits.
Joey said importance should be placed on the environment, building and personal aspects when buying a property.
He said many mistook Chinese superstitions to be feng shui.
“Good feng shui is understated, zen-like and clean,” he said at a talk during The Star Property Fair 2009 yesterday.
At a separate talk, jointly organised by The Star and Samsung, feng shui master David Koh urged housebuyers to avoid certain locations which were “unfriendly.”
He said high tension wires were not just bad for feng shui, but bad for health, too.
“One should also avoid places at top of hills, that faces mountains and at lower parts of valleys,” he added.
Koh said the presence of water elements, such as rivers, provide a good pool of energy or chi.
He pointed out as example Masjid Jamek, a thriving business area that attributed its vibrant development to its location — sitting above two symmetrical rivers.
