Almost all HDB flats in Singapore have a tenure of 99 years. This unit was built in 1978, but it underwent a major renovation in 2017, thus making it a ‘Period 8’ flat.
This is the aerial view of the flat block. The unit is located at the far end of the corridor.
The residents at this end of the flat share a common lift that is located in the middle of that particular block of flats.
This is the long common corridor leading to the flat unit.
When you enter the flat unit, you have a choice of 2 facing directions. The first choice is where the entrance door is located. Looking out of the entrance door, the unit is facing N.
进入单位，你可以选择两个朝向的方向。 第一个选择是入口门的位置。 从大门望出去，该单位面向北。
entrance door looking out faces N 大门望出去朝北
The second choice is to take advantage of the main window view, which has an excellent view! Looking out of the window, you are facing E.
I am more inclined to say that this facing E main window is the facing direction of the flat unit. This is the floor plan:
This apartment is spacious and airy, but in Feng Shui principles, it will be hard for this owner to save money. There are 2 reasons for this:
1. The ‘chi’ that flows in from the main window front entrance (in this case, the E facing main windows) flows out quickly, as shown by the red arrow that I have drawn. There is nothing in the path to slow down the chi from zipping right through and immediately out of the back windows.
2. It is better for the owner, if we are not able to see the back of the house at first glance. Why?
(i) if a person is able to see the back of his house from the entrance, then it ‘seems’ that the house is very small and short. Nobody wants to live in a small and short house, right?
(ii) if this is the view from the main entrance of the house, then as stated in the point (1), wealth comes in and immediately flows out. There is no time for the Feng Shui of wealth and good fortune to work at all.
这间公寓宽敞又通风， 真舒服！ 👍 但在风水原则理论，屋主应该很难储蓄钱， 主要原因有两个：
（一） 正如我以下绘制的红色箭头所示， 从前门流入的‘气’迅速流出。 这财气进来了， 路径中没有任何东西可以减缓它， 所以它还没有时间停留下来就直接从后窗口流出。
（二） 无论房子或公寓最好不要第一眼就看到房子或公寓的后面， 为什么？
（i）如果从入口处马上看到家的后面， 一目了然， 就显示房子非常小， 非常短。 没有人喜欢住又小又短的房子，对吧？
（ii）正如我在第（一）点提到的， 从大门可以看得到后门，财气、 富气进入了立即流走，根本没有时间发挥它们的风水威力。
So what can the flat owner do? 那么屋主可以怎么做？
