How to determine facing of HDB flat?

Recommended Posts

Recommend you read this link, first:-


Dear Master Lee,
I've attached a copy of my floorplan and had marked out the centre point. However, I don't know how to determine the location to take the facing. Can you please advise?

For the benefit of users in this forum; this link shows a "collection" of Singapore Government built flats built by a statutory board called: Housing and Development Board or HDB.
HDB-3 room flats are "slab or literally brick-type"; while the reference to "point-block" is the HDB-5 room flats. Majority of these flats are build in the early years by HDB. Flats range between 1960's to 1985 thereabouts:-

These HDB-3 room flats and 5 room flats are scattered all over many parts of mature HDB estates. Especially the HDB 5 room flats or point blocks; the majority are built between 1970's to 1980's.

Further to what I had mentioned, do keep in mind these two major considerations:-
1. Many geomancers have the concensus that the most "yang" qi area can be seriously th emost likely candidate as the "mouth" of the home or apartment.
2. The key success factor of the Flying Star Feng Shui is about the "mouth" of the home: where the most light and "air" is most likely to "come-into" the home.

These are some of the considerations:-
1. Determing the facing direction of an HDB flat or any other dwelling is more of an ART than a SCIENCE.
2. Why art? As mentioned in many, many past forum messages on this subject: Even geomancers are divided as to which is the facing direction.
3. In your example:
3.1. Most likely the facing direction is EITHER:-
3.1.1 Standiing inside the apartment at PURPLE marking A looking out towards B OR
3.1.2 Standing inside the apartment at PURPLE marking B looking out towards C
3.1.3 The other missing factor is the siteplan with BLOCK where this apartment stack is in.
4. Under 3.1.3; some geomancers even consider the facing of the ENTIRE Block especially if the block of flats looks like a slab of bricks (very rectangular shaped).
4.1. While as many Singapore know; the 5-room HDB point block has 4 stacks each looking out towards different directions. And for this HDB 5-room point block; each of the stack can be the facing direction.
5. Anyway, there is no prize for right or wrong, here. IT DEPEND!
6. Again, referring to some past forum messages; questions asked are:-
6.1. If one has personally stayed in that home (apartment/flat) for at least 2 or 3 years or more; COULD plot several Flying Star Feng Shui chart(s) to check which is more "accurate". (Of course, this is for those who are more advanced in the understanding of Flying Star).
6.2. An experienced geomancer will often say that they will try to observe the habits or if not sure ask the person staying in that home or going to do so:
6.3. Are you most likely to leave the main entrance door open (most of the time) e.g. when you are at home. OR do you slam shutthe main door once you are at home? If so, then it MAY be that your facing direction could be standing inside the home at marking A looking out towards C.
6.4 If you always slam shut the main door often; then how can qi come into the main door (even if itcan be considered as the mouth of the home in some instances).
7. Therefore,determining the facing direction is purely an ART, first and foremost.
8. It is a pity that some geomancer would pull out aFeng Shui textbook and refer to it.As most of us know, in the past, very few if anyapartments exists.
8.1. And in the past, ifan old Feng Shui book refers to the facing direction; it is often or 100 percent of the time;standing inan old traditional"landed" property looking out towards the main gain. For this reason, some Geomancersdo or die insists that such "bible" written say 500 years ago is the only correct method.
8.2. In essence; some geomancers feel that especially for low floors; the facade of the entire building should be considered as the facing direction. This is most likely true especially for the older Singapore HDB 3-room slab or as mentioned from top view these flats look like a piece of brick.
9. Even the area where the flats are is considered. For example, Singapore is a small island. And if we are now at Marine Parade area. One will often notice the wind (breeze) blowing at different times of the day. As mentioned in several past messages; geography does play a part although it is only used as a guide. For example, we learnt of high and low pressure zones. And at night the heat from the land is heated up while the sea cools ... thus wind will blow from high to low and this changes ...during the day and night.
10. The sitemap is also looked at. This is why many HDB 5-room point blocks have clear space around each block and they are 25 storeys high. While older HDB 3room flats depends on whether there are other same flats at same height; which may or may not block direct wind blowing. So to comment on your 2D layout plan without looking or visualising at the entire neighbourhood; and there is also a difference between NE of Singapore (North east monsoon) and say the east coast (Marine Parade area).

Hi Master Lee,

We are considering getting a unit at Hillbrooks. But we don't know what direction to look at.

It is development with 3 blocks but all joined in one main complex. Should we look at the general direction of entire development or that of the individual blocks?

Additionally, 2 of the blocks has various entrances each - usually one or two from the B1/B2 carparks, and another from the walking path that flanks the 2 sides of the building.. seems too complicated for us to start determining which entrance matters. 

Or do we just consider the direction from main door or main balcony of the individual unit.

We are also a family of 4 will all of us West Kua people - while the main development entrance faces SE - should we just forget about this development?

 

Many thanks in advance for your guidance.

These are some considerations:

1. Location, location and location. The external, the site,  the block and the unit within block = 70% of the Feng Shui Luck.

2. Understanding What is the frontage is important:-

3. This later link has several case studies to shows roughly what are taken into consideration...

3.2 For example:

3.2.1 And lots more examples. Where the external of the unit is looked into, the individual’s ba zi directions etc...

Another example: 

Location, location and location as shown by the TOP of the review... looking at the external, the site... are always looked at, first.
