The article in this series serves as an example to assist home buyers to qualify for a good investment property or properties that could enjoy good Feng Shui and good Return on Investment or ROI with a mean to hedge against inflation. It also acts as an illustration to share the knowledge of Classical Feng Shui principles that could be used to assess a good property. This is based on the recent Seastrand Condo launch at Pasir Ris

With reference to the residential development site plan, the site is overlooking the Pulau Ubin in the North, an island that could act as a Table Mountain (案山). In Feng Shui context, a Table Mountain is a good feature where it could lock in the Sheng-Qi (生气) in the vicinity provided the external environment is able to support this structure. The current site seems to be able to benefit from this feature should the property is situated in the right facing, tapping to the vibrant Qi and channelling this energy to the property.

In many Feng Shui classics, there is a saying: 伸手摸着案, 积财千万贯. This can be literally translated as if you can stretch your arm and able to touch the tip of Table Mountain, then you could have a higher chance to accumulate wealth by the millions.

In current context, this can be referred as if you are able to view the highest tip of the Table Mountain at eye level, you could harness and benefit from the good energy that is locked in the vicinity. With a better and conducive environment, one could perform better in their life endeavors.

For a Table Mountain in the North of the site, North facing properties, especially N1 facing units (compass bearing: 337.6 – 352.5 degrees), overlooking the Table Mountain in the front are the better choice as it could benefit from this external environment.

In Xuan Kong Flying Stars (玄空飞星), Water in the North for the N1 Period 8 (2004 – 2023) home brings about general good wealth and prosperity, which can lead to fostering good health, high productivity, as well as better family relationships to the residents.

The properties have a Double 8 in the North sector of the House Chart, a good sector to “see” water and high ground in the same facing direction. In this case, the property is overlooking the Serangoon Harbour and Pulau Ubin in the background.

For a South 1 Period 8 property, having water in the North sector would also bring about overall wealth luck, and creates steady career opportunities to the residents.

To further ascertain a better unit, one still requires to assess which units are the better ones among the rest, and personalizing which floor level is more suitable for the residents based on their life chart and their anticipated endeavours in life.
