Last year when we started to buy our future house and lot I started to read about Feng Shui. In wikipedia, Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics believed to use the laws of both Heaven (astronomy) and Earth (geography) to help one improve life by receiving positive qi(energy flow). Feng Shui is basically based on five elements: metal, earth, water, fire and wood. The work of these five elements is to create a harmonized environment around us.I am so glad to learn the basics and I will share what I have learned here step by step. First, I would like to share my tips before you buy a house and lot. Nowadays, it is really hard to buy a house and lot in good location especially in urban areas.
