What Lillian Too Said ...

Which shopping mall do you think has the best feng shui in the Klang Valley?

I think it is Mid Valley as it is always packed with people. Go there later than 11am and you will have a hard time finding parking space. Although other shopping malls like 1Utama or Sunway Pyramid also suffer from this parking problem, they are limited to the weekends.

And guess what really convinced me that Mid Valley Megamall and its surroundings have good feng shui? Well, you can't go wrong when two of Malaysian's most well known feng shui practitioners set up their offices in Mid Valley City. Yes, I am talking about the infamous Lillian Too and Joey Yap.

Two Sundays ago, I attended Lillian Too's Feng Shui Extravaganza at KL Convention Centre. And last Saturday, my brother attended Joey Yap's Feng Shui seminar also at the same venue.

In case you think me and my brother are feng shui fanatics, let me assure you we are not. I do believe in feng shui, and I do practise it, but I am not obsessed with it.

Not everyone agrees with Lillian Too on her suggestion to have feng shui cures and enhancers. Some think she's marketing her products when she encourages people to get those feng shui stuffs. If you are one of them, you will probably be better off attending Joey Yap's talk as Joey does not sell any feng shui remedies.

Well, whether you agree with her or not, you cannot deny that Lillian is a good speaker, great at motivating people, and is definitely brilliant in marketing herself and her business. She has a very impressive stage presence as once she stands on the stage, all attention goes straight to her!

I enjoyed her talk a lot as I found it entertaining. That's because she threw in lots and lots of jokes!

Here's one joke that kept the crowd in stitches. Lillian mentioned that she used her feng shui enhancers ( I forgot which one!) to attract more friends. She boasted she had so many friends she had a hard time catching up with all of them. In the next sentence, she quickly said, "But of course I sign up for Facebook and my friends multiplied overnight!" or something to that effect. Haha! That's funny, no?

Another joke that had me laughing was when she said she once suffered from a back problem every morning when she wakes up from her bed. So to cure it, she placed lots of metal objects in her bedroom which according to her, would help to improve her health. The next morning, her back pain miraculously disappeared! In the next breath, she said "But of course, I took the painkiller lah..." Haha! She's one funny lady!

So would you like to know what's in store for the Year of The Ox?

According to Lillian Too, the year of the Ox promises respite and recovery from the economy downfall that hit us last year. Although there will be more bad news coming, overall the year of the Ox will be more stable. This is especially so in Malaysia as we are very fortunate to be located in the South East, as this sector will be protected from the economy instability this year.

Lillian Too advised us not to be too overly concerned with bad news coming from the USA, as although USA would be hit hard economically, Malaysia would not be dragged along with it. That's good news, yes?

The reason for this positive outlook is due to the presence of all the five elements in the Bazi Chart. The three Yang and one Yin pillar also indicates strong Yang energy. Although there are opportunities, do be careful. Attention should be focused on preserving your current wealth than trying to make quick money. This is the year to strengthen your financial situation to prepare yourself for more coming challenges beyond 2009. Yes, 2010 is not a very good year, it seems.

There would be a continuation of natural calamities due to the Dominant Earth. Be health conscious as there is danger of sickness and epidemics.

Here are some predictions for the different industries.

Metal Element Businesses (eg. mining, jewellery, computers, airlines) - Since there is plenty of earth to fuel metal, those involved in this business should think big and take risks. The first quarter of the year will be an excellent year for this industry.

Earth Element Businesses (eg. property, real estate, construction, hotels) - Will be doing well the whole year, but should do planning before investing.

Fire Element Businesses (eg. stock market, entertainment, lighting, restaurants) - Since there are plenty of wood to fuel fire, those involved in this industry should think big and make big gains. However, they do need to watch timing. The second half of the year will perform better compared to the first half.

Wood Element Businesses (eg. plantation, agriculture, publishing, education) - Not a good year. Only the best will survive. Some may need to close. Should consolidate to stay afloat!

Water Element Businesses (eg. banking, shipping, transport, alcohol, fishing) - A difficult year of crisis situations. Would need strategies to survive as weak companies will collapse.

I am not going to touch on the prediction of each animal year as you can read that here. However, they are very general in scope. To really know with accuracy, you will need to have your Bazi interpreted by a Bazi practitioner.

Well, if you like to know more, catch her on Astro TV channels Hallmark (702), CNN (511), Starworld (711) & Asian Food Channel (703) in the months of January and February. For the exact time, click here.

Next up, I shall post on what Joey Yap said....so stay tuned!

    I watched her show in Astro a couple of yeasrs back. She is entertaining, but I do feel that she is also trying to market her stuff too.

    There was a newspaper article about Mid Valley's feng shui. About how the Klang river, the Indian temple and the circling traffic all helps boosting the mall's feng shui. Must be true since it's always packed even during the weekdays! I hate going there during the weekends. All you see are people and more people!

    Property industry will be doing well!??

    Hotels are also likely to see lower occupancy rate as people and companies cut spending.

    Well I am an MBA student so I see it from another perspective.

    I sometimes find Lillian Too, a little too much drama for my liking...too commercial. But she is smart in exploiting it I have to give her that. :-)

    Hi Molly

    Most important believe in yourself and what you can do. You got to plan and you work your plan. Plan realistically and you can achieve it because your mind works for you. What you put into it will be will be end result. Positive thinking is necessary in our daily life.

    lina, she's definitely trying to market her stuffs. Some people don't like that, but I'm used to it so it does not bother me too much. I went to her talk just to gain some knowledge and have a good time! Haha!

    Yes, Mid Valley Mall is always packed even during weekdays. I try not to go there after 10am cos difficult to find parking spaces. Definitely good feng shui there! : )

    khengsiong, it sure doesn't look like the property and hotel industry is doing well, right? Well, this are just predictions and like the weather forecast, they can be off sometimes : )

    January 21, 2009 at 1:50 PM
  7. foongpc said...

    gallivanter, I totally agree with you. Too much drama. haha! She's smart alrite! : )

    hope, thanks for dropping by, but I'm not Molly : ) Maybe you typed in the wrong comment box : )

    I agree, Lillian Too is funny even in her writings. I guess that is why she's popular. I'm looking forward to your post about Joey Yap.
    Btw, I noticed that most Malaysian bloggers use the word 'la'. Maybe you can do a post to explain it. :o)

    Feng shui says the best location for a house is a hill behind and a river in front...but these days, I really wonder. May end up becoming the victim of a landslide and with the bank erosion, the house may just collapse into the river. So much for feng shui!! Hahahahaha!!!!

    er I wont really believe in fengshui though .....

    so everything that lilian too say is kinda commercialized

  16. QuaChee said...

    foongpc, i heard from ppl that one cant do fengshui as biz, as its not good (bad luck). im just wondering...

    anyway, i do believe a fair bit on fengshui.. not too much, as ive mentioned before. but somehow my friends all just ignore lol :)

    I hope this year will be better as she says. I had never heard of these Feng shui people until now.

  19. Angie Tan said...

    I like to watch her because she is funny...

    Hehehee... I look at the practical side of feng shui and that's about it.

    Otherwise, I still believe that although we all crave for divine intervention in everything we do, come to think of it, the rest is up to us, right?

    BTW, KONG HEI FATT CHOY!!

    You know I just clicked the link that you provided for the individual horoscope reading and boy are there many PRODUCTS that one is supposed to buy! It is like a catalog selling products rather than one's outlook for the year. I'm sensing commercialism here...

    Yawor. If mid valley good feng shui. If not Lillian Too would not have opened WOFS there. lol

  22. foongpc said...

    ky, annoying, but talented business woman? Haha! I think there are people who will agree with you! : )

    anonymous, yes she did. But I decided not to reveal it here cos I have a feeling Joey Yap's version is more accurate. I will post what Joey Yap said in my next post, so stay tuned! : )

    goolooloo, Lillian Too does have her facts right, but it leaned towards what objects you need to buy to cure or enhance your feng shui. Also, some of the things she said are based on superstitions. Joey Yap on the other hand, does not sell any feng shui cures and enhancers, so I guess what he says is more trustworthy and dependable
    : )

  23. foongpc said...

    neo, harith iskandar is funny, but he has no feng shui knowledge. Besides, I think Lillian Too can give him a run for his money! : )

    babette, yes the way she talks attracts attention that's why she's such a good speaker. As for the usage of 'lah' by Malaysian bloggers, it's actually our way of speaking English - we call it Manglish (ie. Malaysian English). To know more, you can refer to wikipedia : )

  24. foongpc said...

    suituapui, haha! I guess better not have the house too close to the hill in case of landslides! : )

    irenelim, haha! I have visited your online boutique and I'm impressed really! But unfortunately, I don't buy women's clothing. OK, will tell my female friends to visit lah : )

    lisalicious, then don't listen to her, listen to Joey Yap : )

  25. foongpc said...

    quachee, I don't think that's true, just take a look at Lillian Too and Joey Yap - they are both making lots of $$$!

    But I do know that if you give feng shui advice without charging a fee, you will get bad luck. It happened to me once - I analysed the feng shui of a friend's house many years ago, and I did not charge her anything. When I left her house, I got involved in an accident! I didn't know at that time, but after I learnt about this, I never do any free consultation for people any more. LOL!

    That is why Lillian and Joey only give very generalised advice in their public talks. If you want to go for your specific feng shui analysis and advice, you will need to pay them to do a proper consultation.

  26. foongpc said...

    pete, haha! If fishing is not your bread and butter, no need to hang up lah! : )

    health nut wannabee mom, well if you are a follower and practitioner of feng shui, you will know them cos they are famous worldwide : )

    angie tan, she's funny alrite! : )
    I see feng shui as something we can make use of to enhance our lives, but the rest is really up to us - I mean we have to work hard and work smart. Oh, btw, using feng shui means we are working smart : )

    January 22, 2009 at 8:23 PM
  27. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, haha! You are right, it's all about selling the products! : )

    josephine, make sense, doesn't it? But I'm talking more about her office located at Mid Valley City, not the wofs shop in Mid Valley Mall. Cos the wofs in 1Utama had closed down - if you notice! : )

    Lillian Too? Hmm...she's very smart I have to say. She capitalise on this whole Feng Shui idea and made lots of bucks at the believers expense! =/ I don't know what else to say.

    January 25, 2009 at 3:16 AM
  31. foongpc said...

    She's smart indeed! Very good at marketing. That's why so rich lah : )

    Sometimes I think lilian too is too fake for me. I heard from a friend saying that she is divorced and the husband standing next to her is just for showing to ppl how happy she is. Also, I read from a magazine saying that she has high blood pressure/ diabetes. Just wondering why didn't she use her feng shui to cure her health..

    If talking abt fengshui, I would go for Joey Yap. Keep it up Joey!

    See the review from amazon customer after bought lilian too book : http://www.amazon.com/Feng-Shui-Kit-Lessons-Fundamentals/product-reviews/1862041504/ref=cm_cr_dp_all_helpful?ie=UTF8&coliid=&showViewpoints=1&colid=&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending


    Anyway, I just paste it here
    "I feel I was being cheated by Lilian Too when I bought Lillian Too's Feng Shui Kit and it does not offer how to use them and her explaination vague."

    Stop sucking other's ppl money with your dirty tactic and dirty mind please Lillian Too....

    anonymous, thanks for your comments, although I'm sorry I'm late in replying - like 4 months late! Haha!

    I heard all those rumours but I don't care too much. Cos famous people always have good and bad write-ups. I am just interested in learning more from Lillian Too, that's all.

    As for why she didn't use feng shui to cure her health problems, I guess feng shui cannot cure everything. If not, everyone can just use feng shui to become well again : )
