At US$9100 per sq. ft., Hong Kong’s Tian-hui Skyscraper (天匯) is the most expensive real estate in the world.

The building is 40 storeys high– but it has an 88th floor at the highest level! What is going on?

In western societies, the number 13 is considered inauspicious, so some builders have deliberately “skipped” the 13th floor for their buildings. Donald Trump’s Trump Tower has done that. For the Chinese, the number 4 sounds like “death”, so some buidings will have no 4th, 14th, 40th and 44th floors.

If you go to any China-town, you will see many cars with license plates like “888”, “168”, “118” and the likes. Properties with “8” number can also be sold at higher prices. Chinese like the number 8 because it sounds like “prosperity” or “getting rich”.

Tian-hui Skyscaper is 40 storeys high with 34 residential floors. The followings are the floor number assignments:
*1- 6th floor (commercial/parking)
*8 – 12th floor (5 floors): no 13 and 14th
*15- 23rd floor (9 floors): no 24th
*25- 33rd floor (9 floors): no 34th
*35- 39th floor (9 floors): no 40- 59th
*60- 61 floor (2 floor): no 62nd
*63rd floor (no 64-65th)
*66th floor (no 67th)
*68th floor (no 69-87, jumps to 88th)
*88th floor

This is the most blatant and haphazard floor numbering to attract buyers in history.

Some local consumer groups complain that the real estate developer misleads the public on the numbering of the floors for financial gains. Local politicans criticize the Hong Kong government of failing to regulate the industry. The “4th Uncle”, nickname of the developer, said, “Buyers are delighted with the floor numbers!”

Whoever can afford US$9100 per sq. ft. or US$56M for a 6200 sq.  ft. unit in the building should not be too stupid.

Incidentially, the height of the building is 152 meters. “152” sounds like “not easy to maintain the #1 position” in the local Cantonese dialect. In terms of Feng Shui, 5-2 combination means disaster and major sickness or even death! Fortunately the “1” mitigates the negative effects of 5-2 a little bit.

Xu month  starts and runs till Nov. 16.  Chou year (2009) and xu month already form “semi-3-penalties“.  When it runs into a wei day, the day becomes a “year-breaker” day plus “3-penalties” day– not suitable to make major decision or traveling (susceptible to traffic accident).

The following days are ram days, clashing ox and forming a  “3-penalties day” with xu month–  10/29 (ding-wei day) and 11/10 (ji-wei day).   You better stay home and avoid traveling or doing anything important or making major decision.

The chou-xu-wei combination is especially inauspicious for people with ram, ox and dog animal sign.  Even if you do not have these animal signs, but your spouse palace (day branch) has a wei (ram), chou (ox) or xu (dog), you should be extra careful during this month too.  It is not too late to get the Immortal Lu safe-driving metal talisman or at least you put a protection symbol of your favorite deity or religion into your car.

I have run into a case of a ding-fire day-master (DM) with heart problem. But the client does not know her birth hour. Her current 10-year-luck has just entered into strong water formation. Heart problem normally involves ding-fire.

So naturally I would think she is a weak DM, but plugging in all 12 possible Chinese hours into her chart.  However, only one hour will make her DM strong, all the rest will be weak– 1/12 chance.

I need to find more evidence to prove that she indeed is a strong DM.

How? By asking questions on personality, family relationship and personal preferences. Questions like:
— who makes more decisions– you or your spouse?
— your spouse beats you up or you beat up your spouse?
— what colors do you like?
— do you take your time to do things?
……..

The answers I got match to that of a strong DM. So what I can deduce is that even if water is favorable to a strong Ding day-master, but too much of a good thing still screws her heart up. It is all about yin-yang balance. She is over 70 years old.

Amazingly, I checked the Feng Shui of her house— her bedroom is in NE with 5-9 star (causing heart, blood or eye problems) and annual 2-sickness star is at her main door. In terms of 8-mansions Feng Shui, her room is in “disaster” palace.

This is another case of 4P and Feng Shui synchonize to each other. I’ve used techniques from my Destiny Management courses plus Feng Shui cures for this case. Here are the cures used:

— certain plants
— coins
— white crystal
— removing certain items from her house

Ain’t they green and natural?
