|In Hui Master International Geomancy Pte Ltd, aptitude is the winning factor. In Master Hui's shop, you can find numerous valuable and sparkling Feng Shui items, as well as opulent jade and crystal ornaments. However, these are not as attractive as the photos of MediaCorp celebrities that are hanging on the wall. In these photos, you can find Best Actor Zheng Ge Ping and Best Actress Yvonne Lim, as well as Henry Thia, Joey Swee, Sherry Chen, Apple Hong, Edmund Chen, etc. These popular and respected celebrities are all satisfactory customers of Master Hui. |
So, why do celebrities prefer to see Master Hui for Feng Shui advices? With this question in mind, I paid Master Hui a visit at his shop at Marine Parade.
Although Master Hui serves a celebrity clientele, he is a down to earth man who does what he does best with modesty. When I first met him, he was sitting at a corner of this 50-year-old shop as usual, in a conventional shirt, appearing amiable and approachable.Master Hui grew up in a Buddhist family and he followed his father's footsteps in the study of Feng Shui. His father, Grand Master Kong Tong (), who founded Victory Thailand Buddhist Articles religious goods company in 1957, used to bring the young Master Hui along whenever he went for a Feng Shui consultation at his clients' places. The young Master Hui was quick in comprehension and showed an innate intelligence towards the principles of Feng Shui. It was clear in the early stage that he was born with the wisdom and qualities needed for a career in this area, and hence he was affectionately known as "The Prince of Feng Shui". Given this appropriate environment, Master Hui began to study Feng Shui. When he was nine, he became a renunciant practitioner in Thailand and acquired his Dharma Name "Shi Hui Jie" () from his teacher. Besides learning from his father, Master Hui also trained under the tutelage of many other masters, who taught him various profound subjects such as the Buddhist doctrine, metaphysics, Bazi, Feng Shui, Numerology and the study of Chinese names.
When Master Hui was 19, he decided to further his learning and became a renunciant practitioner again. Subsequently, at the age of 39, Master Hui took a break from his busy work routine and went on a pilgrimage to Dharamsala in North India to learn Vajrayana, again serving as a renunciant practitioner.
Master Hui speaks with a good sense of humour, but when it comes to work, he is very serious and dedicated. He often goes to his clients' houses for Feng Shui surveys, explaining its theories as he works out the remedies. Master Hui does not convey superstitious believes, but chooses to combine the scientific components of Feng Shui and modern design to create a favourable environment for his clients. His friendliness and sincerity have won him a lot of praises. Since Master Hui started his Feng Shui consultancy service in 1986, he has accumulated over 20 years of experiences and is recognised and trusted because of his seniority, professionalism and capabilities.
Master Hui holds Feng Shui seminars and workshops regularly, in order to share his knowledge and let others understand more about Feng Shui. In addition, he travels often in Asia to perform Feng Shui surveys for his clients. To date, he has been to Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China for various Feng Shui consultation assignments.
