Berjaya Times Square was said to have been feng shui by using 8 Mansion.
8 mansion is a simple and straight forward to decide the house formation. however there are 2 major versions within 8 Mansion. One is the Personal Gua 命卦 method while the other is the House Gua 宅卦 method.
House Gua School
This school uses the property Sitting as the reference point. Since this mall sits on South faces North which makes this a Li house. Li according to the theory of 8 mansion belongs to the East Group. East Group has the 1,3,4,9 which correspond to sectors of North, East, South East and South.
Personal Gua School
This school of thought uses the boss as their point of reference. Thus Tan Sri Vincent so happens also born in 1952 has a Personal Gua of 3 which also belongs to East Group. Thus for this mall either way its coherent a East group house.
Flying Star is undoubtedly famous for it’s ability to predict thus some practitioners call it a divination tool. However, this is a highly misconceived notion. If the knowledge of Flying Star is deep and authentic, it can also be used to set the Feng Shui formation for any property. However if the knowledge is superficial and self studied, perhaps this is how misconceived idea creeps in. Feng Shui is a knowledge you need a practicing master to guide.
There are two cases where fire accidents happen in the city that I live, Kuala Lumpur. One of it happened on one of the busiest malls in Kuala Lumpur, Mid Valley Megamall. It is located at the area where two famous feng shui masters operate their high end business from. The one main reason they have chosen this location is because of the purported Jade Belt River Formation which is supposed to be auspicious but why the Fire accidents happened and how it happened?
The Explosive Morning
In the morning of 5th April 2016, an explosion 💥 occurred at the Chili’s restaurant at 9:45am. It was caused by a gas leak when the mall operators were doing a maintenance and bypass job and while testing, it happened. Luckily no casualties were involved only minor injuries happened. It could have been the good Feng Shui of Mid Valley that have avoided serious casualties.
To the authorities and lay people, this is probably due to human negligence or a fault in the standard operating procedures (SOP) etc but to a Feng Shui master, this is something that needs to be investigated.
Back in October 2018, I was at Podomoro City for an Feng Shui Consulting job for an office there. Nearby there were 2 malls and when I had time I made a brief visit to the 2 mall with my student. One was an older mall while the other was a rather new mall.
The new mall was completed around mid of 2016 and has 197,000 sqm site area and leasable area of 44,931.43 sqm. It was awarded by as the Best Retail Development for Indonesia back in 2017.
Upon examination, I concluded to my student that the new mall Feng Shui isn’t that good and worried about the future and later before parting to the airport, I informed my client the same.
Fast forward to in March 2019, my client visited me in Kuala Lumpur and the very first thing the told me, “You remember you told me that the adjacent mall Feng Shui is not good?” I replied “Yes, I remembered!, Why?”. In a curious tone he said “Well it closed just recently!”. I was baffled. Normally, here in Malaysia no matter how bad shape is the mall, operators will try to hold on to them. It is very rare case here to close down the mall. They will rather drag for years operating a poor mall. Maybe the profit margins are very good.
When they reopened in 2014, the tenancy went up to 80% according to media reports. Fast forward to 2019, the crowd were mainly concentrated on the ground & lower ground floors especially during lunch hours. The other floors was just having light traffic.
It was completed around 1996 / 1997 during the era of Dr Mahathir during his tenure as the Prime minister of Malaysia and the building belonged to the Country petroleum company, Petronas.
In this development, apart from the 2 famous Petronas Twin Towers, there is the Mall (Suria KLCC) and a Philharmonic hall adjacent to it.
It was never known if there were any Feng Shui elements used in the design of this building but some how it was definitely has a much stronger crowd since it’s opening. If you have stories about the Feng Shui design of KLCC, we love to hear from you.
Why is it some malls are not able to perform or badly perform as in drawing in crowds? Is there a Feng Shui reason behind? We know that in Kuala Lumpur, there are malls with more than 20 years and yet holds high rental yield and full of crowd. Is it because purely due to location? Today we investigated 2 such places in Kuala Lumpur.Void is a phenomena in feng shui whereby the building is in a position that is really bad Feng Shui.
The Glades, Putra Heights
The Glades Plaza was built as part of the complimentary for it’s gated Glades bungalow units back Quarter 4 of 2013. Photos taken this year shows that no business could survive there except their property sales office.Why can it be that bad? A property developer that is top 10 in Malaysia and it’s Feng Shui was heavily promoted by an internationally famous Feng Shui master from Kuala Lumpur, why then it can be in such sad state?A few business tried to open there but closed down not long after. The last being a cafe.Is it due to poor marketing efforts or was played down by a hidden hands of Feng Shui?What was possibly missed out in the Feng Shui assessment? Gone were the days where bus load of students enthusiastically measuring with their new luopans that I vividly recalled while passing by back then.

Summit mall USJ has been opened for more than 20 years. Its a Sitting East Facing West property 卯山酉向 build around 1997-1998. Flaking this mall is a big office block and SEGI college and Summit Hotel.
About August of last year, it had a new face lift inside as well as outside the mall. They also lit up the parking bays which is commendable.
Sadly today, after more than 1 year, Jan 2018, it has not improved in terms of crowd pulling. The simple reason is because the people factor of this mall is damaged.
Changed few major tenants, supermarket to B point and now Homedec. Many shops with some for as long as 17 years restaurant has closed down or moved out.
Front Main Door Facing West
Main door of any premise is very important factor in Feng shui. It has significant effects on the overall Feng Shui of any premise may it be a house, a mall or office.
With this type of Main door Feng Shui, changes of loss of money through misappropriation or gradual loss of business & arguments will be a common thing.
At this time where the economy is not so favorable, new tax laws, tougher business environment, new malls sprouting out nearby, it is understandable businesses are struggling. On hind side, it is still better then The Strand or the previous Subang Avenue and the USJ 19 mall.
Back in mid 2012, I was having a discussion with one of my senior since we both stay in vicinity. The discussion was focused on feng shui since this is out common denominator. Both of them was opened to public by end 2012.
Recently nearby our place there are two malls recently started operations. The first to start was One City Mall (managed & built by MCT) and months later The Main Place later started (managed & refurbished by BinaPuri).
Some background information, One city has many new features of a mall such as sky bridge, a large gym, and cinema (closed now), a 4 star hotel, Maybank, SoHo and is centered on business / office mall. Most of the restaurants are also the high end.
On the other hand, Main Place is of a smaller scale and has the more traditional features of a shopping mall with a grocer, apparels, pharmacy, fast food chains, book store, toys r us to name a few outlets.
Here is an interesting article about the Heritage Mall in Kota Tinggi, Johor. Why this new mall is under performing? Has it got to do with the Feng Shui of the Mall?
While I believe not everything is attributed to Feng Shui, nonetheless Feng Shui has a major role in the success and failure of any properties may it be a Mall, Hotel, Factory or a small office or shop.
Getting the Feng Shui correct helps a lot in getting things smoother. Choose your Feng Shui Consultant wisely.

I was at South Gate Mall due to a wrong turn and decided to wait for a friend there while he comes over.
This mall is in the heart of the city and situated on a busy road, Jalan Chan Sow Lin. Oh yes, this place is famous for their curry fish head dish. This same road houses many automobile sales outlet and some old factories and businesses. However, I was rather surprised that despite it’s location, the business is really brisk and lack human traffic. One of the most important criteria for mall’s success is the human traffic isn’t it?
So I whip out my mobile and I did some quick research over the internet about this mall. This mall was built by Mah Sing Group (the Mah Sing building was just opposite) and they are one of the top few developers in Kuala Lumpur albeit pretty young in this industry. In the midst of searching, I happened to read a post on this mall commented/researched by a San He Master.
