Oh, Wow! What Are Those?

Image

On 24th May 2013, we went to Cameron Highlands located in Pahang,  one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations.  It’s a 3 days vacation which we had planned for 1 month.

We had visited the tea plantation, rose garden, cactus farm, bees farm and strawberry farm.  Other than that, we also went to see the Robinson Waterfall, vegetables farm and the butterfly farm.

Among all those amazing plants found in Cameron Highlands, the one that really bombed my brain out is the Long Gourd as you can see on the picture.   These gourd is brown in colour when it dried.  They are not eatable, but can add some shocking factor to this garden view.

Wouldn’t you go “Oh, wow!” when you see these gourds?

What Will Happen on 21 December 2012?

Many people are talking about 21st December, which is just 3 days from today. There are people who already prepared themselves with food, emergency kits and stuff they think that can keep them survive for 1 or 2 months if there were to be doomsday.

I am personally do not believe the earth will die on that day. But rumors from friends and relatives had hammered into my head that probably I would just pack some foods, water and other survival kits, just to make myself feel safe.

Then on 22 December, I will be celebrating The New Era with my family.

In Part 2, enhancement for all the lucky stars in 2010 will definitely provide you with good health and wealth luck.

FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR #9

This number 9 star symbolizes future prosperity, flies to the Northwest (NW) sector in 2010.  House with main door or bedroom located here can enjoy long-term benefits which extend to the future time.  This star also signify completion and successful conclusion of projects.

In order to enhance this star, you must keep the area NW brightly lit. Another best activator is the Victory Banner Windchime which you can place in the NW of your home or office.  It can helps you triumph over obstacles, enemies, competition, problems and obstructions.  Other than this, you can also display the Nine Civilian Rank Bagdes here to bring you upward mobility.

HEAVEN STAR #6

This auspicious Heaven Star #6 flies to teh East this year.  It brings prosperity luck, authority and power  from heaven.  For those who gamble, you will benefit from this star if your room is located in this sector of your house.  In order to activate this star, you need metal energy.  Hence, white or metalic colored wall coverings or scatter cushions in this part of house are definitely good.  You can place 6 Big Smooth Coins to activate this luck in the East sector of house, or living room.  House facing this direction sure can enjoy much heaven luck if you activate this lucky star.

LUCKY STAR #4

This star #4 brings romance & study luck to North sector of office or house.  If you want to activate peach blossom luck, you can use all kind of symbols of romance.  Remember that #4 star is of wood element, so water can really benefit this star.  But not too much, because it will create the condition for sexual scandal.  Best choices are love birds and mandarin ducks.  Here, in the North, the romance star favors young men who are still single.  But those who are already married, do not activate this star because it will bring infidelity.  If your room is located here, use bright light or fire element to suppress its power. 

As for the scolastic luck that this star brings, you can activate it by placing literary symbols to enhance academic luck and career luck.  Those who engage in writing and literary career sure will benefit from this star.  You can also place single-pointed quartz crystal here to help you improve your concentration.

Thi year, the auspicious White Star #1 flies to the West.  This star can bring very good career and mentor luck.  It is also associated with winning over competition.  Furthermore, this star also brings good fortune to houses that have a West-facing or sitting orientation this year.  So, if you want to enjoy this victory luck and good fortune luck, remember to activate it with Liu Li Dragon Tortoise or 9 Rank Badges or Vitory Banner.

PROSPERITY STAR #8

In 2010, the Prosperity Star #8 flies to the center sector of the house, therefore, benefiting all the family members.  This star brings income luck to everyone in general.  It is very auspicious if you could display Crystal 8 symbol in the center of home or office.  Other types of cystal balls are also useful as the earth element and further enhance this sector of earth element.

2010 Feng Shui Cures And Enhancement (Part 1)

After reading Feng Shui World magazine, I would like to share the best contents in it with all people who believe in Feng Shui.

FIVE YELLOW (WU HUANG)

This year, the fearsome 5 Yellow has changed its place to Southwest (SW).  As you all know, this star brings misfortune and tragedies.  Unfortunately, this year’s 5 Yellow is even stronger than before, because 5 Yellow is an earth element star; flying into SW  which also an earth element sector, cause the affliction even greater.  The best cure for this star is to vacate the room afflicted by it.  If you cannot move out, then must keep this place quite, keep windows closed, and door closed.  So that means, no loud musics and TV here.  More importantly, you need to place  feng shui cures.  So, you can:

1)  Place Five Element Pagoda with 10 Powerful Mantras at the afflicted area, or

2)  Place Five Element Big Bell (best is 12 inches high), and must strike the bell at least once a day, or

3)  Wear Double Circle Pendant with a sqaure design in the centre.

For houses that the main door is facing SW, please use another door if possible. Otherwise, must place one of the cures mentioned above.  These also apply to office feng shui placement.  And remember, NO RENOVATION in this sector.

 

 

THREE KILLINGS

Just looking at these two words will probably make you shiver.  So what it does to us?  Well, it causes 3 kinds of losses, that is, the loss of one’s good reputation, the loss of wealth and the loss of a loved one.

In 2010, 3 Killings flies into the North sector of the house or office.  Anybody’s bedroom  in the North sector is afflicted by this scary star.  If possible, you need to use another room just to avoid the 3 Killings for this year.  Next year, if there is not afflicted by any bad flying stars, then you can move back to the room.

The best object cure for Three Killings is to place 3 divine guardians, ie. the Chi Lin, Fu Dog and Pi Yao at the afflicted area. 

For houses that face this direction, please use other door, or keep the place quite, keep the door and windows closed during afternoon hours. 

 

TAI SUI

In year 2010, the Grand Duke resides in NE3.  Although this year’s Tai Sui is not fiercely angry, but cautions should be taken.  You can place the Tai Sui plaque with specially written Taoist talisman in the afflicted room, as this plaque can appease the Tai Sui and enlists the Tai Sui’s help to attract prosperity and abundance

Also, the location where the Tai Sui is progressing towards (clockwise), that is, the East 2 location; is unlucky to face this direction because this is deemed rude, so not advisable to face.

Important: Do not disturb the place of the Tai Sui!  So, that means, no renovation.  Keep this place quite at all times.

 

BURGLARY STAR  7 (or VIOLENT STAR 7)

This year, Bulgrary Star 7 flies to Southeast (SE) sector of the house or office.  It’s obvious that this star will bring financial loss.  Furthermore, is also brings violence and make you vulnerable to being cheated.  Hence, getting the right remedies is crucial.  The best you should get is the double-horned rhino & 6-tusk elephant.  Then, place this pair in the SE flanking any door you have there.  If your bedroom is in this sector and cannot change to other room, you can hang small blue rhinos on your handbag to protect against snatch thieves.

Even though the metal element of Bulgrary Star 7 hit the wood element of SE,  which gives the bad star even greater influence, BUT blessings still keep pouring in from heaven.  With the Star of Golden Deity (SE1) and Heavenly Seal (SE3) bringing auspicious energy to these sectors, anyone staying here is blessed.

 

 

ILLNESS STAR 2

The Ilness Star 2 flies to the Northeast (NE) this year and brings illnesses to whoever resides in this sector.  Houses facing NE or room in NE should place metalic cures here.  If your bedroom is here, make sure to move your bed away from NE corner.  Then, place a brass wu lou with antahkarana symbol by your bed side.  The wu lou should be tied with red string to adtivate its chi energy.

 

 

QUARRELSOME STAR 3

This year, the South sector is hit by Quarrelsome Star 2.  This is not good for relationship and especially marriage.  For those of you who works in the big company, this aggrevations is bad too.   This star can cause a host of interpersonal strife to flare up even between closest of allies, friends and loved ones.  Luckily, this year, the Quarrelsome Star 3 is less strong because its intrinsic wood element is exhausted by the fire energy in the South.

Nontheless, you can place fire features here to exhaust its wood energy.  So red color is good.  You can place Fire Sword, or the Flaming Magic Wheel to subdue the quarrelsome energy.
