In 4th Jan 2007,
I wrote in a forum regarding a study of 2 restaurants. One selling Nyona Food whereas the other Chicken Rice. It states: -
"... May I again, invite you to closely look at a restaurant in KOTA DAMANSARA, Dataran Sunway. Located side by side a chicken rice restaurant. This western cum nyonya outlet has been in poor business despite sharing the same sitting and facing with the chick restaurant which is so loaded with people. Indeed this restaurant as I had found out has been FENGSHUIED with all sorts of cures ranging from water to three lagged toad as published in FS mag (The most famous English language FengShui magazine in the market). Yet business is poor... why bad BAZI? or wrong Fengshui master...?"
Then in 29 Mar 2010 (3 years later),
I wrote: -
"...Recently went for the next door chicken rice. Business still so good. The so called nyonya restaurant closed down and change to a Thai restaurant instead. Still bad business. Someone called it a cursed shop... They did not do much renovation from the earlier shop owner. I suspect it must be the same owner. But it was really FengShui the way it was reported in the magazine???..."
Very strange... Is it the "curse" of FengShui is at work? Specifically, the curse of "Flying Star" is at work? Cannot be right? So, what is wrong? Same facing, same sitting?
Someone actually responded by saying: -
"... Base on external landform to find out suitable business in that area is more important than reading a specific bazi. Even though side by side shop, one is doing fine and the other is not is due to the business is not suitable (in FS business also has its element).
I think if Nyonya shop selling same food with the chicken rice, their business would be good. Secondly, to attract business wealth (do some basic FS) and to do nice promotion or repackaging the food. Buy one free soup or drink?..."
I suppose, the sharing the close proximity, the similar landforms apply for both shops. Whereas promotions and the sort is only human effort. In fact, the Thai restaurant has better promotions compared to the Chicken rice shop. Yet its business is not as good as the Chicken Rice shop. Where has it gone so wrong?
So, this is a very interesting case study. 2 restaurants side by side. Sharing same facing and sitting. Selling same but similar product - FOOD. The Nyona food has its main door measured to size according to the FengShui Ruler, whereas the Chicken Rice has none. Nyonya Food has big Bright Hall, but the Chicken Rice has none. Nyonya Food has air-cond, Chicken rice has none. Nyonya Food has water feature to activate the present 8 water star, Chicken rice has none. Nyonya Food has lots of green, Chicken Rice has none. Nyonya Food has PiYao, FuDog, Qilin and Mystic Knot but Chicken Rice has a clock with 12 Zodiac animals and a BaGua.
What is the moral of the case. Don't be happy if you have a Bright Hall. Worst, if you don't even know how to use it...
