To Celebrate the Silver Jubilee of Cheong Geomancy Consultants, I chose to write this article instead of a party or big charity drive. also add in FaceBook! Something different.
'twinkles my eyes, 25 years slipped by
yesterday was with 2 masters in hk, today i'm a geomancer
no shop, no strategy. only honesty & sincerity
from lion city, kiwi, dragon land to tiger den
many clients now own many & drive bigger cars, & properties too.
some found God, some found Love
am i good? am i pleased?'
Look Back, Memories:
1. Publicity: i don't pay the magazine or newspaper to have my page. hardly advertise. but the mass media
have been kind. veteran journalist ms lee siew hua did the first intro. prominent writer mr wong kim hoh brought me to the next level with his article on feng shui & casino. so interesting that the chinese press translated it. wrote for Interior Digest & Raffles Town Club too.
2. Extreme Success: in the toilets in most commercial properties in the region, Rigel is a name you can't
miss. about 2 decades ago it started with a 300 sqf shop only. today Rigel is a multi awards winner,
& its area size + fortune worldwide are uncountable! in the owner's own words: he never expects
Rigel to be so big! a few years after it started its founder Mr Ng shifted the whole shop to a 4000 sqf
property off balester rd. there i told him to change car from Honda to MB, he's stunned! some years
later he moved to his first house in east coast, i told him to change his 200 to at least a 280! Lexus he
chose. now he drives a BMW 7 series. some years ago without geomancy he invested in a plant in
china. it failed him! very urgently i went to chengdu in winter to correct the problems. last year Rigel
celebrated its 21st anniversary with Dinner & Dance at MBS. and i won a Lucky Draw Prize.
21/10/13: now working on Rigel's new regional HQ at Changi Business Park, 6000sqm.
3. Disappointment: sometimes new clients will ask for discount because of hardship. when they're ok,
at the next consultation when i quoted them my actual price, the reply: Expensive!
often enquiries will compare prices. mine usually on the high side. i'm a consultant & not merely a
feng shui chap! if you were to engage a specialist, master hairstylist, etc do you pay gp or barber's
some thought today after consultation, tomorrow he'll become the President or Millionaire!
can some Masters stop conducting mass Feng Shui classes? many fellows attended some short courses
& started to be Masters! wrong medicine by a doc kill only 1 patient. wrong feng shui advice could
kill a family!
4. Hotel & Tourism: about 20 years ago, my first hotel job was in Riverview. followed by Hilton,
MM, Ritz-Carlton. then many hotels come along. the latest is St Regis. glad to say that most hotels and
their establishments have Cheong's Feng Shui in a way or another.
in 2000/1, PATA's chairman contacted me on a fri that could i talk on feng shui tourism the next day
as the original speaker from Malaysia couldn't make it! with my colour slides i went as The Replacement
Speaker! (Chow Yuen Fatt's movie The Replacement Killer was a hit then). that presentation brought
me to NZ some months later which i'll share with you later.
i speak on Year of Luck annually at S'pore Hotel Assns's events. at the S'pore Flyer's outing, a 007
James Bond looked alike Mr Patrick Fiat invited me to talk at SKAL. spoke there a few years too.
number of talks conducted in many organisations lost count!
To All Hoteliers, Tourism & related people, Thanks for Your Complete Trust in Cheong!
5. New Zealand: in the late 80s, ms sara noble, sent by her Korean Professor in University of Auckland
to here to do a Thesis on Geomancy for her Master of Arts degree in Geography. i spent about a year
helping her with no fee. she graduated with 1st Class Honours. her thesis was eventually published as a
book Feng Shui in S'pore. i helped her to launch it at a full house crowd at the Book Fair.
in her book Introduction page she wrote "...grateful to Master Danny Cheong, whose enthusiasm for
this study and sincerity and dedication have been invaluable in helping to convince me that feng shui is a
living philosophy in Singapore ".
some months after the earlier PATA's talk, Tony, regional manager of New Zealand Tourism Board,
enjoyed my presentation so much that he invited me to give the same in Auckland, Rotorua &
Christchurch in conjunction with NZ's 100 Years of Tourism! he advised me on the weather for end
Autumn, 5 deg in the night & 15 deg C in the day; & don't make fun of the Maori. looking at
the size of the Maori, their 1 leg is the size of my waist! 2 friendly Maori businessmen came & invited me
to a hill to take a look at their proposed Maori Cultural Centre. climbed the hill with full suit & leather
although i didn't get to meet Ms Helen Clark, the PM then, years later they attracted Lord of the Ring,
King Kong, more tourists, & the Kiwi $ became strong!
during that unforgettable trip, Ms Sara Noble, fetched me at the airport. arranged lunch between her
Korean Professor & I. visited her house & had dinner with wine at a nice sea-side restaurant.
6. Mr Patrick Fiat & Mr Noel Hawkes: allow me to say Patrick this Ang Moh is very Chinese. at
many CNY Lo Hei functions, his accent on Huat Lah is louder & better than many Chinese! in his
office will find many things Chinese! besides inviting me to speak at SKAL's functions, he invited me to
look at Royal Plaza on Scotts & 8 on Claymore. hope one day he'll invite me to the Royal Palace
in Brunei. was told that the late great Feng Shui monk did some magic at the Palace.
i know Noel when he's the GM of Hotel Phoenix. had the privilege to feng shui his condo in Sentosa
Cove some years back. also did his pretty wife Nancy's office. now he's VP - RWS. recently he and
the wife survived cancer. God wanted something back from them. at his 60th birthday, he donated
it's an Honour to work with these 2 good buddies who're Golden Hoteliers.
7. Extreme Challenge: i was only given nothing more or less but 12 mins exactly to speak on Year of Luck
at Hilton/Conrad Group's GM Convention at Conrad Hotel many years ago. And must not talk about
certain zodiac animals because some Top People's zodiac were bad that year!
a single mum with 3 young kids with few jobs seek my help to feng shui her hdb 3-rm flat at yishun.
she knew feng shui could help her but she can't afford the fee. already she checked with many other
feng shui people. in those days, the lowest fee i could offer her was $300 but she wanted even lower! so
what i could do was pay me $100 then the remaining $200 to pay me within 6 months. the remaining $
came 8 months later & she said she saw result!
Simon & wife were both Tigers so if they could have Pig baby would be best. few months into Pig
year, they said Miscarriage! how can that be! i chose their wedding date & feng shui their exec
masionette in toh yi. they then disclosed that due to their shift duties at hospital, most times they stayed
at a relative's flat in Tiong Bahru! i wished to see that unit free. the fault was a Large Full Size Mirror
faced their bed! they stayed in Toh Yi then. when the Tiger year came, they, Catholic, delivered Twins!
God is Fair!
some years later they upgraded to the condo across the road. now looking at Landed House.
8. Extreme Spooky: from the Kowloon Club magazine learnt that the sole bread winner of a HK migrant
family lost his job due to unknown medical ground after they shifted into a HDB flat! they appealed for
fund. i told the Club Secretary that i wished to feng shui his flat free. his wife told me before my offer,
another member brought a Ghost Buster, & he already captured a Family of 3 Malay Ghosts! the
resale flat belonged to a young Malay family whose mum passed away in the unit. when they shifted,
they didn't inform the deceased properly. thus her soul still lingered around & with the ancestor
thought why their flat was occupied by strangers! they haunted the hk family very badly &
caused the man nearly life! 1 of them actually flew to the hospital to disturb him. the doctors
remarked that his survivor was miracle! his wife went to the temple to pray many times till her knees &
forehead bled! sure major feng shui faults in the unit eg his bed was parallel to the door etc.
9. Research & Study: in addition to aid Ms Sara Noble in her research, also helped several groups of
SMU students in their projects. attended 1 of their presentations & spoke too. advised a Ministry's
Director for his MBA.
assessed & advised S'pore Poly Graduates' Guild on the Date to Ground-Break their new premises.
10. Green Feng Shui: instead of using crystal or auspicious items to Enhance/Dispel the Good or Bad
Energy of your property, i like to apply Green. it's Healthy & Nice. of course the Right Plant must
be at the Right Spot. Fagerdala has Bamboo Plants surrounding its plant. this's to protect & to
11. Water Geomancy: Wind means Luck, Water means Wealth. in every premise there's a Lucky
Water Spot but also an Unlucky one that could bring Misery! i always recommend to activate such
Good Wealth Point by putting Fountain, Aquarium, Painting/Print of Water or a pail of Running
Water. glad to say Green & Water Feng Shui have become my Signature!
a. To Have a Shop in a Mall, Hotel, Shop-House or HDB Heartland.
b. Developers will factor in Feng Shui for all their developments.
c. All Architecture & Interior Design Courses to have Feng Shui as a Subject.
