Prosperity hugs

This article is in today's The Star.

I have no issues with giving one's wife a hug (or more) each day. In fact, I think it is a good thing. But what I cannot agree on is the other stuffs that you will need to do to help improve your luck.

Place anything that has to do with wood...
So I got this kayu (slang for idiot) friend, does this friend constitute as 'has to do with wood'? Or what about I use a lighter because after all, a lighter has a lot to do with wood! It can start a fire that can BURN the WOOD.

...yellow colour items to be placed in the west direction
If the WEST happens to be your main gate, would you think twice about hanging your yellow underwear near the main entrance to your house? :)

I have always believed fengshui to be a belief or practice that focuses on being harmonious with your nature or surroundings. Planting trees to improve your health, I can agree. Avoid having a house facing a junction, I can agree. After all, logically, it can be dangerous and distracting. A car might not be able to stop in time at the junction and crash into your house! And those glare from the car lights at night can really annoy you when you are watching TV or trying to get some sleep. Let's not forget about the noise.

But I definitely cannot subscribe to the idea that you need to hang a jade ornament here and put a glass of water there in order to improve your luck or health.

But a hug... A hug is OK by my books. Oh well, that's only me... Maybe that explains why I've not made my rm1 million yet. On second thoughts...

Darling! Let's place more ceramic plates and bowls on the Southwest corner of the house.

as long as we don't go overboard, anything is ok... that's why i can agree with this recommendation - to hug your loved ones everyday.

but i get a massive headache when i hear about having to buy this and that and then place it somewhere... :)

Hi Adrian, came to know about your blog through vicky. i totally agree with your opinion that no external substance can enhance our 'luck' or the quality of our lives if our character is not up to it. Plus, the word 'quality' itself is rather subjective. to some, it could mean two luxury cars and a bungalow, while for others, it could mean having to spend more time with the family without owning big cars. oh, btw, those neck-ties... my oh my... are you as animated as the ties you wear? if yes, i'd like to have a conversation with you some time!!
