Feng Shui Is A Town Planning Tool (城市規劃)
talk about Feng Shui (FS) as if it is a very secretive knowledge. To me, FS is
just a town planning tool. No point in talking too much for now, I have a job
order to plan and build a corporate headquarter building of a group of
companies in Malaysia; please hop on and see for yourself.
Step 1: Macro FS (大玄空)
laugh at this point as it is a little absurd to use FS instead of marketing
survey for location identifications. But, FS is actually a forecasting tool; it
can forecast on which part of a piece of land may be prosperous in the next
10~20 years to come. So, the difference
of if we buy a piece of land now versus if we buy a piece of land 20 years
later; I don’t need to tell you which land is cheaper correct? Furthermore, you
may not be able to get any land when the place is fully developed.
now is the 8th period, the land with hills on its Northeastern part
and sea or lake on its Southwestern part will be prime. This place is situated
in Southwestern part of Johore.

a good network of federal roads; incidentally, this would be the river mouth in
area near a crossroads is identified, we need to determine the facing of our
building for a wrong facing may cause disasters. Both the flying star and
dragon arrangement must agree with each other.
internal layout of the building can be planned.
Step 4: Building outlook (收山出煞)
of the building affects the well beings of the people who work in it and
indirectly affects the efficiency and output of the workforce, so if the front
should be hidden by plants or it should be an open design will be of some
Step 5: Choosing an auspicious date (擇日)
Most of the
big bosses would like to choose an auspicious date for ground breaking, so we
should also include that in our job scope.
our job is finished, we will let the industrial engineers and the layout
planners to take over the job. Once the initial planning is executed carefully,
there is no need to change the layout for a long time. So, since when we see
the Chinese emperors changing their Forbidden City?
