The Discussion Of Two Malls – Part 2

After the first postings on the this same subject, this time I will discuss 2 malls that shared the same public facilities which is the KLCC LRT Station. They are the Avenue K and Suria KLCC.

Avenue K

This is the Mall that was opened in 2005 but business has been lukewarm and this lead to reduced tenancy over time and a change was urgently needed to rejuvenate business. https://www.thestar.com.my/business/business-news/2005/06/17/hk-land-city-prop-team-up/

Then in 2013 the management embarked on a courageous move to have a total make over of the mall. They even took this opportunity to take advantage of Feng Shui by engaging a renowned consultancy agency to induce Feng Shui elements into the new mall plan. https://www.thestar.com.my/news/community/2013/09/06/shopping-mall-gets-a-facelift-avenue-k-to-unveil-its-new-look-to-shoppers-next-month/

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.

Suria KLCC

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.

San Yuan Feng Shui 三元风水

After blogging a while, I guess I have not done an introduction of San Yuan Feng Shui to my readers. It is the school I am from apart from being part of Wu Chang lineage (无常流) & from Central Academy of Feng Shui. So here you go…

San Yuan (三元) Feng Shui is a school of Feng Shui which majors in subjects like Flying Star or Fei Xing, Xuan Kong Da Gua, Long Men Ba Ju water method, Xuan Kong Liu Fa and San Yuan Qi Men Dun Jia. The uniqueness of San Yuan is that they place great emphasis on Timing.

The other major school for Feng Shui is called the San He 三合 School. They have also many subjects such as 8 Mansion, San He Water Methods, Yang Gong Feng Shui which uses Landforms heavily and downplay the role of time factor.

Then there are other school of thoughts of Feng Shui such as 8 aspiration, symbolic schools, 9 Ki Star, Zi Wei Dou Shu, Bazi Feng Shui, Jiang Hu Pai etc…

What is so fascinating about San Yuan ? San Yuan is considered the younger brother because it existence to the public was much later compared to San He but San Yuan is the method that was used in the Imperial Courts. San He was used more by the commoners more when Masters like Yang Yu Song brought the art out of the palace.

San Yuan was popularized by Master Jiang Da Hong (蔣大鴻), who himself is San Yuan practitioner in the courts and he was taking care of the library during the last decades of Ming Dynasty. Later when he left the courts he brought this knowledge with him too. One of the famous Feng Shui Classics written by Jiang was Earth Discerning Truth Classic (Di Li Bian Zheng, 地理辨正)

Feng Shui during those days was a big thing especially to the Emperor as it is an art that can change/influence the fate of a person, family and country. Hence the art was pass down partially in book partially by oral teachings to those students who are in his opinion has the right qualities. I do not know all the qualities he was looking for but one of then is for sure, he has to be kind person because such art into the hands of wrong people, spells disaster to humanity and the dynasty too.

So what is San Yuan Feng Shui? San Yuan system is based on few basic important foundation. Timing, Location and Direction. The foundation of all these comes from Trigrams & Hexagrams which in any case was founded on Yi Jing (I-Ching).

San Yuan in its purest form only work from the 3 fundamental concepts that sits on the foundation of Yi Jing.

The system do not encourage putting things, no “internal house land forms”, no cultural rituals/belief, no talisman used etc.

The most popular of the San Yuan method today is the Flying Star or Fei Xing method. Flying Star that you know today has several versions due to mixing and changes done by individual master that mixed various methods in to make it unique for them  and to some more appealing to public perhaps.

The origin of Flying Star was from one source but in the early 20th Century it went separate ways. In my coming articles I will explain more.
