:eek: i like to share a story i heard about why Singapore has so many trees.

Look at Singapore Map - do you not think it look like a crab from the top view.
If there is no trees around, it will be like a cooked crab. That will not be good for Singapore.

So trees were planted every where in Singapore so that Singapore will look like a healthy lively crab from the top view. Healthy crab is green :) This bring about good fortune for this tiny Island.

This is accordingly results of good fengshiu consultation.

hi bookworm, interesting theory you have there. so how come singaporeans are not walking sideways like crabs do ????

ha ha, bookworm... that sounds more like "crap" to me.

If you asked me a green crab is "healthy". when have you seen a green crab before?

Don enemy - you need to go study more!

I mentioned top view - so outline from top view not that Singapore is a crab.

Onion - i think better you go to the market and see the fresh crabs from the stalk they are definitely not red it is either dark green/ olive green towards tone of darker side.

I heard from a friend that the late Master Hong Chuan advised our MM on this le... apparently he also told MM that everyone in Singapore should have a "ba gua" and that's why our $1 coin and road tax decal is in the shape of a ba gua :rolleyes:

Feng shui provides tools and guidelines for analyzing and correcting the flow of energy into and through our space. It uses the arrangement of rooms and the placement of furniture to create a smooth pathway for chi through a home, office, or retail location. Blockages and other forms of negative chi are removed or counteracted in order to welcome in opportunities and encourage progress. Colors and shapes associated with the five elements-wood, fire, earth, metal, and water-are used to create movement, balance, or protection, depending on the needs of the client. Imagery and objects such as paintings, photographs, statuary and other accessories are chosen and placed to enhance and reinforce the client's intention.

Feng Shui reminds us that everything is connected, and that our physical surroundings have a significant impact on our mind, body, and spirit. It teaches us to be mindful caretakers of our environments, so that we may be mindful caretakers of our lives.

Feng shui opens up possibilities of meeting new people.
Meeting new people is another bonus of being a Feng Shui enthusiast. When you are applying Feng Shui, chances are, you will be able to find another person within your social network who likes the same stuff and can even help you expand your knowledge on Feng Shui, no matter how limited it is to begin with.
