|Straight from the horse's mouth|
Canadian Feng Shui expert Paul Ng predicts businesses involving wood or fire you will do well e.g.lumber companies, agriculture and media companies. Property companies won’t do as well and as the horse is a galloper, the potential is for the prices to gallop downwards over the first 6 months. The last bit seems to be pretty accurate.
In Homer's Odyssey, the horse used by the Greeks as subterfuge to enter and destroy the city of Troy from within is called a "Wooden Horse" (Δούρειος Ἵππος, Doúreios Híppos, in the Homeric Ionic dialect). Also better known as the "Trojan Horse", metaphor for any trick or stratagem that causes a target to allow a foe into a securely protected bastion or space.
The stratagem that floods our country with foreigners to boost economic gains is doing more than dilute the Singapore core. It has exposed the shortcomings in infrastructure planning, rot in the civil service reputed to be corruption free, ineptitude at the top echelons who cling tenaciously to perpetuity of political power. Instead of attending to the cracks in the system, referred to as fault lines by the guy who opened wide the gates for the Trojan, they paper over their foibles. Just because his father said Singaporeans are wuss:
"The Taiwanese are ruthless, Hong Kongers are shameless and Singaporeans are ignorant. People who are ignorant are not corrupt and reliable."
Margaret Thatcher once said of Lee Kuan Yew, "He had a way of penetrating the fog of propaganda and expressing with unique clarity the issues of our times and the way to tackle them. He was never wrong." Maybe that's the perspective from 6 feet under. Up here at ground zero, we know better.
Feng shui practitioner Raymond Lo told Reuters: “The upcoming Horse year is also a 'yang wood' year, when people will stick more to their principles and stand firm. So it is hard to negotiate or compromise as there are more tendencies for people to fight for their ideals.” It's a good year to start believing in Feng shui.
