Case Study 1: Look out for the location of the common rubbish chute lobby with two bins each: Recyle and common bins.

1279567547_HDBPlantationVillageCOMMONBINS.thumb.png.befdf2a00606b14623fd5d9d3a41333e.png

1. Today all HDB bin lobbys have two bins: a recycle bin and a common bin.

Separate-chutes-for-recyclable-waste.png.0df8ca3f24cd771d8defbe335ca8283f.png

2. Under Shapes and Forms Feng Shui, it is best to avoid purchasing two stacks: Block 125A stack #275 and Block 125B stack #277.

3. There is a stigma attached to the common bin / bin lobby visible from the main door.

You_Doodle_2016-10-20T05_02_57Z.thumb.jpg.97ce6d0e05213db2ec9651992c9e78e0.jpg3.1. It is difficult to shake-off stigmas. For example, just imagine having visitors to your unit. And having to hear: "How come you buy such a unit?" or "I read somewhere that it is inauspicious like this."

3.2. Your family invested money and now.. perhaps feel uneasy about it. Furthermore, in the near future, adding salt to one's wound; potential buyers will try to "low-ball" you.

Case Study 3: Any concern with the Bin Centre (Pneumatic Waste Conveyance System) PWCS?

1. Common sense says to avoid purchasing a unit just beside the PWCS.

2. Thus #231 #233 and #235 should be your last conseration!

3. There is always a stigma with stacks/units facing the PWCS especially stacks 267 and 265. In addition, these two stacks are also directly facing the PWCS + Electrical Sub-station.

26686649_HDBPLANTATIONVILLAGEPWCS.thumb.png.517ba0d96903a2370fc67b1adb59d97f.png4. Contrast this to HDB Tampines Green Glen where the PWCS is literally out-of-sight and out-of-mind.2. This PWCS is neatly tucked away with the Electrical Sub-Station (ESS) attched to the MSCP. Kudos there! Not this development-:(

5. Conservatively, or in our local language, let's be Kiasu and Kiasee and TRY, yes TRY to avoid purchasing a unit within the RED boxed area!

6. If you really don't have a choice.. at least purchase a unit that looks away from the PWCS. Further stacks such as 241 seems okay. Stacks 273 and 275 maybe okay.. But I will discuss these two stacks in another Part/Case Study as these stacks especially low floors may face into the Precinct Pavilion.

7. However, if one has heard the nightmare / education required / several circulars of some exisiting condos e.g. CDL developments like The Venue etc... their is some learning curve as to what not to throw into the respective unit's common bins.

7.1. Else, the management or for this case the Town Council may frequently sent circulars "not to abuse" these bins.

7.2. For CDL developments... above these PWCS, there is often a signage with as many as 8 or more icons telling people not to throw this, or that or that... !

Case Study 4: Any concern with the Bin Centre (PneumaticWaste  Conveyance System) PWCS?1. Great that for HDB Tampines Green Glen, the PWCS is literally out-of-sight and out-of-mind.2. This PWCS is neatly tucked away with the Electrical Sub-Station (ESS) attched to the MSCP. Kudos,...

Need some learning curve.. as residents at a recent development found out... High Park  Residences at Fernvale, Sengkang..

Paid a visit on 8.12.2019... True enough.. a RED Notice placed directly on the Refuse Chute door: " NO BULKY ITEMS SHOULD BE THROWN INTO THIS PNEUMATIC SYSTEM"

Case Study 4: Potential Sha Qi (Poison arrow) from sharp corner of neighbouring development aimed towards four stacks in HDB Plantation Village

392531184_PLANTATIONVILLAGEPOTENTIALPOISONARROWS.thumb.png.bbcd59f3de7ecbdcd2367bbf7df90a28.png

711757906_standinsidemaindoorlookingoutwards1.thumb.png.be67c3e963e2cdf86a0b60f93ccfe16a.png1. It is highly possible that these four stacks: #217, #341, #405 & #461 may be affected from sharp corner of neighbouring development's sharp corner.

2. Please note that this list may not be exhaustive. As I did a quick sampling of this estate.

3. Often if the sharp corner has to be aimed towards a unit's opening such as the living room window(s) and or a bedroom window to be classified as a poison arrow.

4. To be 100% sure, it is best to be physically present at the unit.. standing inside all windows and looking outwards to check.

4.1. If the sharp corner or poison arrow is aimed towards the middle windows of the living room.. harder to cure.. given that it is not possible to draw down the curtains all day long.

4.2. Often a simple cure is: "If cannot see the threat, it no longer becomes an issue"....

5. On the safe side... do be hesitant.. when looking at these stacks..

Case Study 5: Is there any issue if my unit looks into the Precinct Pavilion (PP)?

1973334606_PLANTATIONVILLAGEPRECINCTPAVILION.thumb.png.896ae0e7c0f77cc88fbc258f212e9b6d.png1. The main concern is that wakes/funerals are unplanned. And sometimes, it may even occur during one's festive day such as 1st or 2nd day of Chinese New Year. 

2. Frankly, newer developments seems to have less funeral or wake activities than aging estates. But we may never know, here.

3. If possible, try to avoid low floors (e.g. at least 2nd to 5th storeys) of these stacks:-

#273
#275
#277
#279
#429
#431

3.1 While if there are activities, here, one may hear sounds coming from the PP:-
#245
#271
#281
#307
#423
#475

Case 6A: Type 1 Sha Qi from potential poison arrow(s) from a neighbouring Block's sharp corner

608588986_PLANTATIONVILLAGEANDDEVELOPMENTSHAQI.thumb.png.2875a4828b0e6559cbc4608c1d2e6a5c.png

1. There are potential poison arrows, here:-

From #227 aimed towards #209
From #289 aimed towards #309
From #295 aimed towards #327
From #455 aimed towards #473
From #467 aimed towards #211

711757906_standinsidemaindoorlookingoutwards1.thumb.png.be67c3e963e2cdf86a0b60f93ccfe16a.png2. How can I be sure that these stacks/units are 100% affected?

2.1. As mentioned under above Case Study 4, the only certainty is to be physically on-site to confirm this. For example, hopefully the sharp corner is not aimed towards an open window of a unit.

Note: This is a sampling exercise. And it is not exhaustive to identify other potential poison arrows (if any).

Case 6B: Type 2 Sha Qi from potential poison arrow(s) where the unit faces the side of another unit.

1823570624_PLANTATIONVILLAGETYPE2SHAQI.png.078eb2e308c69b73b6ed86ec9f6bad0f.png1. In this example, stack #285 is affected by the Type 2 Sha Qi. The Sha Qi comes from stack #309.

2. In addition from around 12pm and depending on the floor level of the unit, the frontage of stack #309 also also get the reflected sunlight glare from the sidewall of stack #309.

3. Thus the higher one's unit is at #309, the longer the duration of exposure to this glare.

4. The glare from the sidewall of #309 also depends on the painted exterior wall. If the wall is painted white or light colours.. the higher the intensity of the glare perhaps around 12pm to maybe even 3 or 3.40pm.

5. In addition, from stack #285, one can also look towards the yard area of both stacks #311 and #309. 

More examples of Type 2 Sha Qi can be found under this link:-

Case Study 7: The unit numbering of this development always ends at a odd number.

1013808830_plantationvillageoddnumberingsystem.png.703de161b54bbc5793d7f01974885f24.png

1. For example: #03-395, #05-391 etc...

2. Thus there will never be a #04-144, #14-44 etc... As some Chinese consider such numbers inauspicious.

3. As these are at least three digit numbers other than the floor levels, there is also no "13".

4. Actually this unlucky number 13 has more to do with a western influence:

4.1. In my opinion Singapore Airlines in the past adopted this perhaps felt that they should pamper the westerners ... and till this day.. in all my flights at the front of the plane, where I sit around these numbers,

4.2. I always try to observe it. And yes, so far, I yet to see a #13 seat

Yes definitely.

Below: For confidentiality all ranking details are masked out ranking for HDB 5 bedroom types. Will also have quite similar considerations also for 4 Bedrooms etc..

This development's various stacks has many considerations.. as can be seen via the Sample Legends.. starting from A to U. 

1635225146_forumplantationvillagestack485.thumb.png.70216e35cd2e90359bb66679c7e9111f.pngAnd certainly, 485 will be added with a 485A. Since difficult for neigbouring development to shield this stack.

Where if one sees the Legend below

A = Expect afternoon sun .... all year round.. on sunny days...

Generally this is a glimpse of what factors to look out for when selecting a unit in Plantation Village:-

Often, when I walk past a Feng Shui Products Store.. cannot help but shaking my head... as these stores give Feng Shui a bad name.

Source and Credit: Channel News Asia:-

Read with interest: "The death of the department store.."

Also anticipate with interest: "When the buying Stops, the selling Can!"

So goes also the death of these Feng Shui Product Stores.. LOL

Hello Shifu. 

Hope to get your valuable input on the unit I am eyeing for Tengah BTO Nov 2019. 

image.thumb.png.632da659e51f925e12cfede02543ca57.png



I am looking at Block 127B, #14-397 (circled it on the map). All seems good now: North facing, not near big bins and pavilion etc, shouldnt get afternoon sun, near to new mrt but not too near to hear the tracks (i think) etc..  Are there any other things I should take note? maybe the numbers or something? Thank you in advance :)

Frankly one of the better choice for this estate.

Very minor is that every last six months of the year, slight afternoon sun on the frontage (approximately 3 degrees from west). No major concern, here.

Numbers? One man’s meat is another man’s poison.

Frankly so long as not infamous numbers like 4 44 would generally be whatever one wants it to be. Nor does it adversely the resale value is good enough.

Greeting sir,

Initially in the tengah project, my first few choices was 127B unit 395 however all high floors are chosen. May I ask your opinion on 126C unit 351? Or should I go with 127B low floor compared to 126C high floor? Thank you for your advice.

Frankly, this must be your first home.

For sure many experienced buyers will certainly not touch 351. (Even if one is a West Group person).  As the frontage faces true West at 270 degrees. Where most likely from 12pm onwards to even as late as 4pm.. hot, hot hot..

Here, I am not comparing to your best choice or low floors for that matter.

Stigmas and reality like "afternoon sun" can also....

More... 7th Choice = *NE2-xxEFHT @W2-351A @W2-xxxA

Legend: 

@ = Client wanted to wait, do renovations and move-in during Period 9:

S2 -> Auspicous Double #9's at North or rear of the unit for S2. Which means Period 9 wealth luck is wasted at the kitchen area.

SE2 -> Auspicous Double #9's at NW or rear of the unit for SE2. Which means Period 9 wealth luck is wasted at the kitchen area.

SW2 -> Auspicous Double #9's at NE or rear of the unit for SW2. Which means Period 9 wealth luck is wasted at the kitchen area.

W2 -> Auspicous Double #9's at East or rear of the unit for W2. Which means Period 9 wealth luck is wasted at the kitchen area.

A = Expect afternoon sun all year round at the frontage of the unit. For stack #433, high floors will encounter more afternoon sun.

Dear Shifu,

I'm a first-time home buyer considering this plantation village project, however as most of the better units have been selected already. I would like to seek your advise on 2 types of stigmas you've mentioned in your post. Could you kindly advise if one were to choose between a unit which would potentially be hotter like #429 (Blk128B) which is South-West facing versus a unit near the PWCS like #271 (Blk125A), which unit would you advise to go for? Which type of stigmas is worse in your view? I'm sure your advise would benefit all the new home buyers like me. Thank you in advance!
