Feng shui, the art of
Feng shui (pronounced fung shway) is the ancient Chinese tradition that’s
based on the arranging of one’s surroundings to bring health, wealth,
and happiness. No place is this tradition more closely followed than
in Hong Kong. Feng Shui dictates for the average Hong Kong citizen everything
from where to put a bed to where to locate a business. Some primary elements
of Feng Shui are plants, mirrors, fountains, and live fish. Koi fish
and water fountains are considered especially good for anyone in business.
And, all koi are not created equal. That is why the large bright red
koi on our show was valued at over $40,000.00.
In Feng Shui, all things have their appropriate place. Positive qi (pronounced
chee), the basic energy of life, can be attained by appropriate placement
and direction of objects and buildings. Mirrors for example placed appropriately
can create very good qi according to feng shui, but one should never
according to the tradition put a mirror above the head board of a bed.
