Many people and businesses believe in feng shui and it is widely practised in Singapore, not just by the Chinese alone. Feng shui is a Chinese system of geomancy based on positive energy where five elements are involved – wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Each of the elements has its properties and association with certain colours, materials and symbolism.
Major financial institutions and international companies hire geomancers for advice before opening a new branch or moving to new office location and consult on “good” days to move. Allocation of seats for employees will be consulted as well for good positive energy flow in office. Same goes for when you’re moving and renovation works, there are certain months to avoid doing major changes in your living spaces.
