Some of my
friends are businessmen though I must confess that I can never become a
businessman as I don’t like to entertain people. My cunning pals normally use
tricks to seek my advices in solving their business issues and all of a sudden
I found myself seated amongst a group of business people during supposedly a ‘private’
There was a
case when Yuan invited me to attend a dinner with another acquaintance, Charlie
from Hong Kong. According to Yuan, Charlie was his business partner in Hong
Kong. As narrated by Yuan, Charlie wasn’t doing too good in his business and
had been seeking advices from a renowned Feng Shui master for help.
the master has charged a high price for all his consultations. At first, the
master said Charlie’s name wasn’t good so he suggested a new name. After the
name change, the master said he needs to ‘empower’ Charlie’s name with special
rituals; hence another payment was requested. Later, the same master also
suggested that Charlie’s house Feng Shui wasn’t good, so he found Charlie a new
house somewhere in suburb area. For that service, the master has charged a high
price again as he said that only him can choose the most auspicious date within
this decade. Since Charlie was the most obedient person I have ever seen, he
paid what the master wanted.
things seemed to be stabilizing after the said changes; it only lasted for six
months or so. After that, Charlie’s business continued to go down hills faster
than the rollercoaster. Now Charlie wanted to have a joint venture with Yuan in
the hope that this new venture will revive Charlie’s business. Needless to say,
Charlie was Yuan’s best pal.
transpired that my reason of sitting between Yuan and Charlie over dinner was
to advise them if they should continue with the joint venture. Frankly, I was a
little nosy to find out the truth behind Charlie’s ordeal or you won’t have
this posting to read about…
So I told
Charlie to give me the facing direction of his house; to my surprise as if
Charlie has anticipated my demand, he pulled a stack of Feng Shui report and
handed to me promptly. I flipped over
the report and only to find Charlie’s house was riding on “between lines” (騎線).
According to Flying Star
“Sitting between lines is as if wandering
spirits entering a house.”
Apparently these between lines
houses are as if loose cannons; they swing as they like and they may erupt quite
Having that in mind, I made
an excuse to talk to Yuan alone about my concerns and asked him to be careful
when working with Charlie. True enough, a year later; Charlie was in great debt
and now in hiding and could not be contacted. Since Yuan was warned before
hand, he only lost a small amount of money.
Only when I
am in my mid 40s that I realized our life is not permanent, there are just too
many things pop up unexpectedly even though with some occult knowledge at hand.
I think I will call this situation “order in chaos”; there is still law and
order in our seemingly chaotic life journeys. The more religious ones will call
this force “the almighty God”; while Buddhists choose to call it “the cause and
I met with
an old acquaintance, Yuan now a self-made millionaire for tea in a hotel last
week. According to Yuan, what he is doing now that led him to today’s
multimillion business was not planned. In fact, he wanted to become an artist
at first. We can imagine that if he indeed became an artist; he would only be
able to make ends meet today.
What I can
say is that ‘luck’ is on his side. In the midst of pursuing his artist dream;
his father has fallen ill and need someone to take over their family business
which is selling hot pot cuisines (火鍋料理) a decade ago. Now that his products
are sold all over the globe; he has certainly accumulated immense wealth.
No wonder Yuan
said that after one travels on the life journey for a while and then paused and
think about it; the person becomes so bewildered and wonder why he/she has
chosen such an option to begin with. If there is a second chance, he wonders if
anyone can walk the path again.
Yuan is an intelligent person to talk to as there are hidden wisdom in his
words although he has not studied any occult sciences. In fact, Yuan’s words
have given me new perspectives on astrology and Feng Shui:
Astrology and Feng Shui are based on a set of
formulas and theories; hence their accuracies are very much depended if one can
master these knowledge or otherwise. If anyone cares to invest in their time to
investigate, then they will agree that this wisdom of old is not simply
can fairly accurately pinpoint out one’s life journey, relatives, careers,
education, health etc. On the other hand, Feng Shui calculations can foretell
the well beings on the whole household by simply looking at the house direction
and the surrounding environments.
life is chaotic in nature and astrology and Feng Shui helped us to discover
orders and reasons on human life; this is almost equivalent to our modern “Chaos
Theory” counterpart in field of study in mathematics. As to the correlations
between the two, I would have to leave it to the younger generations to
time is up, there is no religion, magic or any occult sciences can do to save
the day although we can argue about that with many successful and not so
successful examples. You may call me a pessimist; but I would still say that it
is fate or one’s destiny according to the below saying:
“First and foremost, the fate rules all.
Secondly, it is the luck and thirdly the Feng Shui.”
My old school mate, Jeff is
staying in Singapore and his brother, George was suffering from serious kidney
issues. Since Jeff thinks that his brother’s sickness was perhaps due to Feng
Shui issues; he invited me to go to his brother’s place to look see, look see.
Though it is a distance between Singapore and Penang, I had to comply because Jeff
is my old acquaintance.
When I had finally set foot
at George’s place, I saw his face was quite pale indicating that his health was
quite bad and that his hair has almost fallen off too. So, I asked George’s
date of birth and started to calculate his luck. Unfortunately, the calculation
showed that George’s life was at his terminal stage (大限). I pulled Jeff at one
side and quietly told him my prediction but tell George that he will be okay
and he just need some rest. Frankly, I just don’t want George to worry too much
as there is nothing anyone can do better then.
After that I proceed to
perform the Feng Shui audit as that was the purpose of my visit anyway:
George’s bed was located at
the northern part of his apartment but the passageway leading to his bed was
from the southeast. This forms the ‘trap’ (困) in I Ching. Not only had
that; the flying star 5 and 2 congregated in the bedroom as well. No wonder George
was having serious illness.
In addition, the apartment
Feng Shui was bad too. The eastern door with eastern staircase made it a ‘double
hit’ (伏吟). Although I had
suggested some remedial actions, but I still asked George to move house if
It appeared that George
wanted to move anyway but still waiting for occupation permit (入伙紙) from the government and
that has delayed George’s move in process considerably too. Unfortunately
speaking, I just received a call from Jeff that George’s illness just aggravated
last week and passed away few days ago.
That, my friend; I would
attribute George’s death to his fate. So, if one has done what one wanted in
life; then there is no regret. The question remains, are you ready?
Blog writing enables me to get in touch with friends all over the globe; friends with
very special abilities who will otherwise remain silent with their special
abilities. They fear by speaking out about their specialties, they will be boycotted
by their friends; or people will fear of things these gifted people see.
Fiona is a
lady from Hong Kong and she said that she can see spirits or the local would
say that she has ‘yin-yang eyes’ (陰陽眼). Below is an abridged form of her
“To be frank with you, I was experiencing
pretty bad luck a few years back. I was a frequent visitor to hospital as I was
sick on and off during that period. Though I have practiced martial arts, my
health hasn’t reached the level that I wanted.
Worse of all, I have a pair of ‘yin-yang eyes’
and I don’t mean to scare you; I always see ghosts. Especially during when I
was admitted to a hospital, I came across all types of ghosts; you just name
Whatever type of ghosts you like to call them,
they were always come to me with sad and crying faces; I haven’t really seen a
ghost with a smiling face to tell you honestly.
My friends always ask me: what are ghosts look
My answer is always: I don’t know.
Now you must say that I am bluffing correct?
Well, it is true that I can ‘see’ ghosts. Most
of the time, I can only see their faces in a pretty fuzzy form; much that of an
out of focus photograph. So you see, how can I tell you how ghosts look like
People say if one ‘really’ sees the faces of
ghosts clearly, then this person’s days will be numbered because his/her luck
would be so bad that death will be next in line.
Most of the time, I only sees half of the face
or half of the body floating in the air; they only appear as if an overly
exposed photo. Whatever case that might be, there is no way for me to see the
ghosts clearly somehow.
There are many people wanted to ‘see’ ghosts,
but my advice is just not to try. Seeing ghosts is not a good thing as one may
not has the ability to differentiate if it is indeed a ‘ghost’ or if it is just
a hallucination. Sooner or later, the person who really ‘sees’ a ghost may
become crazy as there are just too few people with similar ability that can
confirm what the person really sees…”
tell you the truth; I cannot comment on what Fiona experienced is real or
otherwise. So I share her experience with you and let you judge it yourself.
turmeric is known as “wan paya ngoo tua mea” in Thai or literary “the queen of
snake rhizome”. It is used in the Northeastern part of Thailand as a snakebite
It is said
that white turmeric is discovered by Buddhist monks. Legend has it that a monk
was walking in jungle and he was bitten by a king cobra. He pulled out some
plants with roots and rubbed the root against the bitten part; miraculously the
monk survived to tell his story. And that story made this white turmeric
many ways to administer this white turmeric. The most common method is to mince
a large quantity of white turmeric rhizomes and add liquor that contains at
least 50% alcohol and above. After that this mixture is drunk daily and after a
person is bitten by a poisonous snake. If it is meant for treating snake bite,
local folks normally consume the minced white turmeric until vomit.
another use of white turmeric in Vietnamese black magic community: the white
turmeric is worshipped as ‘snake ngai’ or snake plant. Before snake ngai can be
used, it must be empowered first with below method:
must get a piece of white turmeric rhizome. After that he/she will draw the
required talisman on a piece of copper plate or lead. For a darker operation, a
real cobra is drowned in alcohol first; but the snake is not necessary if one
just wanted the ngai plant to watch over his/her property.
person must dig a hole in his house compound and first put in the copper/lead
talisman then the snake if he/she chooses to use a snake. And then the white
turmeric rhizome is put into the hole. After that the hole is covered with
soil. That ends the first part of the operation.
must visit the site and recite mantras to evoke the 12 Thai snake gods and
goddesses and ask the spirits to give birth to new snake ngai. Snake ngai is
said to be born when new shoots emerged from the ground.
many applications to snake ngai. It can be used to watch over property, harm
enemy, and reduce business competition as well as curing snake bite victims.
Rumor has it that the snake ngai can revive a person who has died of snake bite
provided that the duration is within 18 hours. However no one has tested this
claim in real life.
chooses, he can dig up the white turmeric rhizome and boil it in hot water as this
will keep the spirit inside the rhizome. After the boiling, the rhizome is
dried under sunlight for 3 days. When this is done, the dried rhizome is
wrapped with a piece of red cloth and worship on an altar; or it can also be
carried around as a protective charm.
formula for snake bite is for your reference only as any snake bite victim
ideally should be sent to the nearest hospital. Hence try at your own risks.
think I am crazy in saying that there are people don’t know they are already
dead. But it is true. The telltale signs are all written on their faces of
course: when you come across someone whose faces are waxy grey without any
facial expressions; chances are you have hit the bull’s-eye.
This is a
case happened a few years ago. My pal owns two flat units in Relau, Penang. He
stays in one and the other he rented to an old lady hawker selling fried rice vermicelli.
You know now days, flats are built with two units facing each other though
people say that it is not good Feng Shui.
doesn’t have the habit to shut his main door so he can keep an eye on the other
flat as well. His two kids like to play on the corridor between the flats with
other kids. One evening, when I was visiting my pal for a chat; his two kids
suddenly ran towards us and said: “Daddy, Uncle! We saw two men in black
escorted the old lady away without paying this month’s rental!”
immediately rushed to the main door to have a look… Well, there was no one in
the corridor and the door remains shut where the old lady was staying. Looks
okay we thought.
day, when I was doing my morning marketing; I habitually walked pass the old
lady’s fried vermicelli stall and noticed that she was busy frying vermicelli
and entertaining her usual customers. One thing I noticed about the lady’s face
was that her face looked extremely pale, more towards grayish in color without
any facial expressions. Though I thought it was strange but I didn’t put that
passed and I suddenly received a call from my pal. He said the old lady had
died a week ago, he only suspect something was wrong a few days ago after
smelling awful smell came from his opposite flat. Since he had a set of spare
keys, he opened the flat where the old lady was supposed to stay and to his
shock; he found the old lady’s dead body was swollen and started to decay. Maggots
were crawling everywhere and that was the most awful scene he has ever seen.
the old lady didn’t know that she had died about 7 days ago and continued to
work throughout the week!
another friend of mine who had a hotel business in JB, whose mother died of
heart attack but continued to visit his tenants 3 days later until such a stage
that everyone complaint to my friend that his mother was still ‘alive’!
observe if you can spot any of the walking deaths amongst the living. I am sure
you will be surprised too…
person’s eyes is the first step in Chinese face reading for if the eyes are
good, then everything else would not expect to have too much problems. There is
a saying amongst the face readers:
“Face reading starts with the eyes.”
many types of eyes in Chinese face reading. Amongst all of those eye types,
there are 3 types of eyes that I am a little particular about. The insiders
call these eyes the ‘unkind eyes’ (兇眼). Experts believe persons with
these types of eyes are unkind and arrogant; they will have no good endings. Ideally
we should have common eyes of course, but that is not of our choices:
white eye (四白眼)
is the worst of all. The person is likely to involve in accidents, experience
surgeries, knife injuries, paranoid, mental disorders or prone to commit
3 white (上三白眼)
consequences are as mentioned above but of lesser severity.
3 white (下三白眼)
consequences are as with the upper 3 white eye, but again of lesser severity.
As per general rules, the eyes
represent the life during 35-40 years old. This is not to say that bad luck
would be over after the age of 40 years old for those who have unkind eyes. If
the eyes are not so good, then not only his/her whole life wouldn’t be good; life
during 35 to 40 will especially be bad.
Try to observe the characters in TV
programs and you will agree with what is said about people with unkind eyes. Be
careful if your bosses have a pair of unkind eyes because your life will be
like hell too! You have my condolences!
