The Many Faces of Your Fortune in 2019

 

cover-montage1

So, how many cover designs do you think one book will need, before you find the right one? I guess there is no real answer to that.  Just imagine for one moment that, you are publishing a book or a magazine annually; how much importance will you place on the cover design?  For me, each year, that is that first step, finding the appropriate art direction for the cover design to kick start the making of the, “Your Fortune Series”.

After 13 years, you would think that it will become easier, but the answer is no!  Just to show you what some of the ideas were, I have asked my designer to put together a montage of some of the cover designs that we worked on. While it is always tough working to create an attractive and strong cover, I must say the result has always rewarding.

So with that, I would like to announce that my latest publication: “Your Fortune in 2019” will be out and selling in the Kinokuniya, MPH and other major bookstores and good newstands by early November. So stay tune to purchase a copy!

The Double Nine Festival or Cheung Yang Jie

The Ninth Lunar day of the Ninth Lunar month falls on October 17 this year. This is a special day for the ancient Chinese and still is for many today, as the number 9  is a special Yang number and  it is often associated with the Emperor.  Therefore, the Ninth  Lunar Day in the Ninth Lunar month is considered to be a super Yang and auspicious date.

The  Double Nine Festival’s main activity is  focused on trekking or walking up hills or mountains. It is believed that people can improve their health by taking part in the trekking or walking activities on this day. For me, this is indeed interesting, as 99 in numerology is classified as a Master Number,  and it is also sometimes described as the Eternal Master Number. There are also other information that suggest that walking up the hill or mountain on this day is a symbolic way of reaching new heights.

The Double Nine or the Cheung Yang  Festival is more popular in Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. It is not so widely celebrated in Singapore. I do not know why, but my guess is that it is probably due to the lack of hills and mountains here. With this in mind, if walking or treking on this day symbolically means reaching new  heights, perhaps we can subsitute the mountains by walking up some of the tall buildings in Singapore.  After all, in modern Feng Shui, we do substitute Mountains with Buildings.   Just a practical thought.  However, for those of you that really  wish to walk up a hill in Singapore on October 17,  you can always try  Mount Faber or plan to go on a climbing trip! 😀

Happy Walking on then Double Nine Festival and Good Health to all!

Love and the Dragon Zodiac

DRAGON
Born: 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000
Characteristics: Dragons can be eccentric and may choose to lead a complex life. Generally active and intelligent, they have a very passionate nature and are known to be extremely lucky. Often proud by nature, the Dragon has very high standards and is also ambitious and determined. As Dragons have big dreams about how life should be, they can take a longer than others to decide about love and marriage.

Love for the Dragon Man
The male Dragon finds it hard to resist helping a maiden in distress or anyone else for that matter. He tends to fall in love rather quickly, but relationships are usually short-lived as the male Dragon has very high expectations of his women. He also has a soft spot for very beautiful and intelligent women.

Love for the Dragon Woman
The female Dragon is a very strong woman. She believes in herself and if she comes across injustice will not give in without a fight. The female Dragon has fine tastes and is very elegant. When it comes to love, she is totally committed but can self-sabotage due to her high expectations and personal ambitions for perfection.
