Tips/ Advice from The EDGE Property
FENG SHUI: Getting a male child
Q: What must I do to help my wife conceive a male child?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: You can place crystals/living plants/water feature at the related corner and we can also highlight to you which year to have a baby boy based on the dates of birth of the couple.
FENG SHUI Dried flowers
Q: Some of my old folks say it is not good to have dead flowers (for decorative purposes) in the house as it symbolises death. Is it true
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: What they say is correct but their understanding of the concept is wrong. The reason is that dried or artificial flowers emit decaying energy. If it is located at your good corner such as wealth or health, it will weaken your good corner.
FENG SHUI No need to go vegetarian
Q: My vegetarian friend says Feng Shui will be more effective if I become a vegetarian. Is that true?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: Becoming a vegetarian has nothing to do with Feng Shui, no worries!
FENG SHUI Eating right
Q: Are some foods better for Feng Shui. Should there be some cuisine I should be avoiding?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: There is no such thing as Feng Shui cuisine, but you may find out what type of food or lifestyle you should lead from a Life Reading Profile, which is a reading base on your date of birth.
FENG SHUI Feeling sick
Q: Can Feng Shui help me get rid of some health ailments? What can I do to alleviate insomnia, for example.
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: First of all, you need to find out what your Gua number is. Then, place your bed in your health sector.  At the same time, avoid sleeping in the north or south sector because this is the region of natural magnetic pull.  As we know, there is iron in the blood. If you are sleeping with your head in the north, the iron in your body will be pulled and deposited in your head. After a while, you would not be able to sleep well. You might end up having dreams every night or even getting a migraine. If you sleep with your leg in the north, the same thing happens and after a while, you will have arthritis and other leg-related sickness.
FENG SHUI Vastu Shastra
Q: In your opinion, which is more accurate, Feng Shui or the Vastu Shastra?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: The principle behind these two studies is more or less the same, as long as the practitioners/masters interpret it accordingly and be practical. Other than Feng Shui and Vastu Shastra, the Malays also have their own version called Ilmu Ramal, Tajul Maluk or Mi'arab.
FENG SHUI A weighty issue
Q:Can Feng Shui help me lose weight?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: Feng Shui cannot help you lose weight, but it can help you to think rightly and develop confidence in yourself.
FENG SHUI Face reading
Q: Which one has a greater impact – the face reading thing or Feng Shui?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: Feng Shui has greater impact than face reading. You can compare an old photo of yours with the most recent one, look carefully and you will find many differences. Feng Shui is about the Gua number that you carry from cradle to grave. Also, if you get a house that conforms with Feng Shui externally, you will also be able to internally improve your life.
FENG SHUI Too pricey?
Q: Do you think some masters are charging too much for Feng Shui courses?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers:I  have no comment about how high they are charging but we really hope to get all these practitioners or masters to set some standards to protect the interest of both the practitioners /masters and general public. This is one of the visions of MINGS.
FENG SHUI ‘Unnatural’ relationships
Q: Is being gay bad for Feng Shui? Some people say it is an “unnatural” relationship. So, will my Feng Shui be “unnatural” too?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: Yes it is an "unnatural" relationship but it is not a bad issue for Feng Shui. No one wants to be "unnatural" but being gay could be due to a few reasons. One of the reasons is he/she is staying in the female or male sector as the person nears puberty -- this is mentioned in ancient Feng Shui texts. 
FENG SHUI Nothing to do with black magic
Q: My friend was recently “pukaued” or had a black magic hex placed on her. Can Feng Shui help?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: I am so sorry to say that Feng Shui has nothing to do with it black magic or religion, therefore it is better for your friend to get help from other sources.
FENG SHUI Pets in the house
Q: Does the pet I keep impact on the Feng Shui of my home. Is it better to keep a cat instead of a goldfish, for example?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers:Keeping a pet in the house doesn't have any impact except for fish because you can fix the location of the aquarium permanently, unlike cats or dogs which run everywhere.  Goldfish is a living creature, which produces living energy -- you may place it at the good sector according to your Gua number to further enhance it.
FENG SHUI Facing higher ground
Q: Is there a problem if a house is facing a higher land form? (about 200m away there is higher ground/small hill of about 100 meters above sea level). If there is a problem, what's the remedy?

Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers:It is a problem if the main entrance is not the good sector according to the master of the house. If you have a side door that is the good sector according to the master of the house, then use the sidedoor.  If you don't have a choice, my advise is to move out.
FENG SHUI The harmonious bedroom
Q: What are the most critical details to look out for to create a harmonious bedroom? How do I choose the right wall and furniture colour for a bedroom?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: First you have to find out your Qua number; then you will find out the good sectors for you. The location of the room in relation to your house is important. Next is the selection of the sector to open the entrance door to the bedroom. This is followed by your bed – it must be placed in a good location. Do not forget about the study table if you have one. You will be able to find out your right colour from your Qua number as well.
FENG SHUI Dying fishes
Q: If the fishes in my fish tank or aquarium die, does this mean I am headed for some bad luck? How do I determine where to place my fish tank or aquarium for good Feng Shui?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: Fish tanks and plants serve a similar purpose in Feng Shui. I also had a question concerning plants dying in the house and the person’s fear about something bad happening to him. So, like plants, it is good to place fish tanks in the house, especially at the good locations based on the Qua of the family. And if the plants or fishes you have put according to your good sector suddenly die, it means the energy is no good and you must replace them until they grow and live vibrantly again. 
FENG SHUI External and internal ba gua
Q: How do I define the ba gua or energy map for my garden? When defining the ba gua of a house, does one include the garden?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: You may use ba gua to map the energy in your garden. External ba gua covers the house and the garden while internal ba gua covers only the internal space of a building
FENG SHUI Facing doors
Q. Is it bad Feng Shui if two doors are facing one another in a house? If yes, what kind of the bad luck will this bring and what are the simplest and most economical ways to rectify this?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers:  No bad luck will actually come to you but “energy” cannot be stored in your house because of such a poor design. The moment energy goes in through the main door it goes out immediately through the back door -- the house cannot contain the energy. To mitigate the situation, you may put a partition in between the two doors.
FENG SHUI No need for mirrors
Q: Are mirrors (plain, convex and concave) powerful weapons enough to kill “sha chi”? What are the other weapons I could use to kill “sha chi” both inside and outside my house? Where should I place the so-called weapons? If my neighbour died recently, would this bring “sha chi” to my house. If yes, how can I counter this?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers:  First of all, I have to clarify that Feng Shui has nothing to do with religion and you also don’t have to place any mirrors anywhere to kill the “sha chi”.  Feng Shui is about tapping natural energy and living in harmony with nature. Your neighbour who passed away will not bring you the “sha chi”, please do not worry.
FENG SHUI Water feature in the home
Q: I would like a water feature in the porch of my 2-storey terraced house that faces the northeast. Where should I place the water feature in the porch to get the best Feng Shui results?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: In Feng Shui we recommend that you place a water feature in the garden to enhance the energy. It is based on the orientation of the house and the people who live in it -- you need to know the date of birth of the master of the house and the orientation of the property to get the best results.
FENG SHUI Choosing the right colour
Q: How do we choose the right colour for the main gate of our house? Do we follow the husband or the wife’s auspicious colours?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: For the external wall of the house up to the fencing and gate – all that is based on the Qua of the master of the house, that is the husband. Internally, it is based on the Qua of the lady of the house.
FENG SHUI Good day to move
Q: We will be moving into our new home soon. Do we need to set a “good” or auspicious date or time? If so, how do we determine that?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: It is better to do so. It can be based on the date of birth of the couple or we at MINGS MINGS can help you to pick a good date. This good date is based on the location of the door and the person. In MINGS, we call this Feng Shui phenomenon the “X-File” and is recorded in a book written thousands of years ago.
FENG SHUI Problems with T-junctions
Q: I am planning to buy a house in Petaling Jaya and came across a 2-storey terraced house. I like the well-maintained house but some of my friends advised me not to buy the property as it faces a T-junction. Should I listen to my friends? What’s wrong with owning such a house?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers:  You should listen to your friends. I am quite sure you have heard of a Chinese childhood story about ghosts and spirits liking to meet at the T-junctions or stories of such nature. That by itself already makes it uncomfortable for most folks. In actual fact, it is all about the energy of moving vehicles. Vehicles stop at the junction before turning left or right, but their momentum is still there and this energy will impact on your house if you buy such a home. Can you imagine your house being hit 50 times a day? It is not good at all. 
FENG SHUI Room without windows
Q: I am a student renting a room in a single-storey house. The house originally has four rooms but the owner has added another two new ones. All the rooms are rented out to students. Unfortunately for me, the room that I have does not have a window. Will sleeping in a room without a window affect my life in anyway?
Joe Choo, president of Malaysian Institute of Geomancy Science (MINGS) answers: It does not affect you in terms of Feng Shui but the effect is more psychological and physical since you won’t feel comfortable in a congested, dark and badly-ventilated room. A good space must be well ventilated with constant flow of fresh air for healthy living.
