Tradition Meets Technology

CNY Day 3 – Surprise! Surprise! Its really a WOW! for the Horse year for me. Did not expect this to come out during Chinese New Year! Thanks to the noble people I met on December 2013 that gave me the opportunities to be featured on the Star and BFM 89.9 Radio Station.

Special thanks to my friend, Eu Geen who helps to make this happen.

The Article: Tradition meets technology

In 2006, after a decade of working in the unit trust industry, boredom and uncertainty began to set in for 37-year-old Josephine Phang Lai Foong.

“At that point I was 31. I didn’t see much room for growth in my career and needed a change. Without a clue as to what I would do I just tapped into my childhood interest in Chinese metaphysics. So, I signed up for classes as a hobby,” says KL-born Phang in an interview.

“The field of Chinese metaphysics is so fascinating. You can actually learn so much about a person just from the person’s date and time of birth,” she points out.

Phang, a KL-based feng shui blogger and consultant, studied under Datuk Joey Yap and his instructors at the Mastery Academy of Chinese Metaphysics.

Her love for bazi, a subject under the metaphysics field, which is an ancient science of destiny analysis that translates the details of one’s birth date to analyse the person’s potential and sense of purpose in life led her to start a blog in 2008 as a way to record her case studies.

Through her blog, Phang started getting requests from readers and friends for bazi consulting.

So, while still working at her unit trust job, Phang started doing part-time feng shui and bazi consultation through her blog.

“Most of my readers are from overseas and when they request for a consultation I do it through Skype,” she explains.

Following the encouraging response she received from her blog readers from countries like the United States, Britain and Brazil, Phang dreamed of giving people access to Chinese metaphysics consultation, no matter where they live and especially for those who don’t live in an area where such a service is available.

She decided to create a website to allow Chinese metaphysics practitioners to offer their services so that anyone who has access to the internet can access this ancient wisdom to live a more fulfilling life.

In 2010 Phang registered her company, BaziChic Chinese Metaphysics Consultancy and was born.

Through this hobby-turned-business Phang also taught subjects such as bazi, date selection, feng shui and tarot. She conducted correspondence courses for overseas students and also taught locally during weekends.

In 2013 Phang left her unit trust job and in November the same year she launched BaziChic Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology e-magazine, a quarterly digital magazine.

“My aim in publishing the digital magazine is to get more people acquainted with the classical studies of Chinese metaphysics so that they can use this tool to discover their talent and life purpose faster,” she says.

Phang also hopes that her digital magazine “will clear up some of the misconception that feng shui practices are tied with religion that comes with many taboos, which is not the case.”

“Currently I write all the content for this digital magazine while my friend and partner, Ooi Eu Geen, edits the magazine,” Phang says.

On her website where various feng shui consultation services are listed one would find the fees quoted in Singapore dollars.

Phang explains: “When I first started my blog majority of my readers were from overseas so I quoted in Singapore dollars, but going forward this may change depending on the response and market.”

Although her “Bazi Consultation Services” in a live chat format is also listed, Phang says that the live chat with a consultant is currently unavailable but hopes to get this going next year.

What currently is available includes feng shui audit services for residential property, house selection and commercial property as well as date selection consultancy services for matters relating to relationships, career, business and health.

If you’re looking for that perfect timing where all your stars align to benefit you the most, it’s time for some feng shui counselling, which – thanks to Phang – is now conveniently available online.

    Ren. Ding. Xin. Jia
    Zi. Wei. Wei. Zi

    A friend whose more attractive appealing like able (peach blossom star) fighting to combine with my boss star in the hour pillar? Thanks

    • Hi Jnsa,

      I don’t give personal reading if not under proper consultation. However, I can give you some technical view but you have to think about on your own.
      1) Zi – Wei is harm in your chart. Your output (Wei) is always hurting/harming your Influence/boss (Zi)
      2) Now Ding Mao (month) consist of your Friend (Ding) and Resource (Mao) comes into the interaction of your Zi – Wei relationship.

    What does the hour pillar mean? Like subordinates right? People I work with… My co workers… Does this make them smart (water) , likeable (peach blossom), grand duke ?

        v poignant entry i like this. Interestingly same topic came up with a fren of mine. We were in a cab ride tog the other day 15mins of total sielcne as a test . It was unbearable, and I was tempted to break the sielcne. Similar epiphany: sometimes we react too quickly and kill the opportunity for silent reflection.Sometimes there isn’t a solution just have to learn, then let go.

        • Woods Casey says:

          I do not fully understand what you are saying. Well I will never be the same person after seeing your work! I even found myself shocked and dismayed by how people acted. I kind of hate that this phone battery is almost gone. That was a really simple question asked by my friend that I didn’t really know how to answer. I only got about halfway in to this write up but I’ll read the rest of the write up when I go to work.

    Oh and I am not a Liverpool or Chelsea supporter, although the way the Liverpool fans were still singing You’ll Never Walk alone when their team was losing and the game was almost finished was attractive. Big respect.

    • I love this very much! I’m super attempting to discover more about this topic. I really enjoy what you are doing. Your website is so mind blowing that my ears starts bleeding when I read it. This page really made me think about things. Your great site truly has all of the information I needed.

    • Cbd Edibles says:

      There really is more than just one way of understanding things. There are certainly a lot of information to take into consideration. I would like to be a teacher in this topic. Some really interesting info here. Thank you for posting this up on your site. I bet you probably make puppies smile.

    pretty inspiring collection.attractive created designs here!Many thanks for sharing.

    I actually have enjoyed the article, but your web site is pretty broken in Google Chrome. What theme are you using?

    • Saimon says:

      Ich habe nach dem goldenen Wagen Jin Yu gehrfscot und soviel herausbekommen: Die Bestimmungstabelle von Robert ist korrekt. Sie basiert auf dem oHs des Jahres und den Ez aller vier Se4ulen. Die Bedeutung hat mit Geld/Wohlstand zu tun. Vermutlich ist es so, dass eine starke Qi-Phase I den Wohlstand ff6rdert und eine schwache Qi-Phase den Wohlstand eher mindert. Ich werde weiter nachforschen und den Geist gegen meine Personen-DB testen. Das wird aber einige Zeit dauern. Horst

      • Casey Woods says:

        After looking at a number of the articles on your site, I seriously enjoy your style of blogging. If you’re able, send me an email and we will talk more because I have an idea I think you will love. Your writing is so awesome that my eyes exploded while reading it! That is a very great tip, especially to those new to the issue. My boyfriend wants to be a teacher in this field someday. I’m really visiting so I can discover as much as I can on the subject so I’m able to help others with their concerns in the future.

  7. I’m really intrigued about how this might change things in the long term but it is probably impossible to see them with all the current changes we see happening. Moms andtiny cute animals probably love you. From reading this write up, I can tell you’re really dedicated to this. I truly believe your website needs a lot more attention. I’ve just learned new insights through your post. I am really beyond amazed, I have to tell you.

    I talked about these very topics to my teacher the other day and she could not offer a rebuttal. This blog has some different points of view when compared to the other websites I have seen. Do you write this type of great content yourself or are you a member of a team? Do you really believe this new trend will keep going into the next few months? Although I have shared this blog with many people, it looks to me like very few people are able to understand how important this really is.
