Dear readers,

October marks the start of the year’s last quarter and as we head to the tail end of the Rooster year to meet the Dog head on, we can already feel the energies changing. The coming year of 2018 holds plenty of promise and the way to go is to be determined to make the most of the opportunities that will come your way and in this, you will surely benefit from understanding how the luck and energy patterns vary and transform from year to year – universally for all and also specifically for each of the twelve astrological signs. So October sees the RELEASE of my annual Astrology and Feng Shui books, which I so enjoy writing each year with my Mum, Lillian Too.

Yes, our 2018 ASTROLOGY & FENG SHUI BOOKS have gone to the printers and are coming out soon, so look out for them.

It really is beneficial to know how the New Year’s divination and feng shui charts are interacting with your own animal sign and there is no better source for all this information than from these annual astrology books researched, analyzed and written by LILLIAN & JENIFER TOO.

Knowing what’s in store for you in 2018 – from the exceptional to the months when brilliant tidings await – definitely puts you at an advantage, strengthens your expectations and makes you better prepared for everything coming your way.

From the books you will appreciate how the flying star numbers and the stars of the 24 Mountains and the elements of the Paht Chee combine with your sign’s personalized luck and element energies. Only then will you know how best to enhance the good signs and subdue the obstacles that might cause problems.

We’ve made everything very easy and summarized the key points into beautiful graphics and illustrations. Having your own astrology and feng shui book gives you a powerful guide to the coming year’s vibrations. There’s nothing like it out there!

Don’t miss out! Get your copy online at, on or from your local MPH bookstore!

The past month has been a harrowing one for our friends in America. Hurricane Irma wreaked havoc and put us in some very heart-stopping moments when personal friends updated us hourly on their evacuation plans. It was all very scary indeed. Hanni Lim analyses the natural disasters that have befallen the USA and makes interesting observations from a feng shui perspective. Charok Lama Rinpoche takes us along for a climb up the snowy peaks of the Himalayas and he shares with us how the great beauty of the wild inspires him and also makes him think about the futility of man in the whole scheme of things. Confronting Nature can do that to you.

On the subject of mountain trekking, Lillian Too shares some interesting “other worldly” perspectives to bear in mind when climbing the highlands. The mountains of our world are where humans do not inhabit and here are where the spirit “beings” of other realms reside; they may not appreciate being disturbed by the presence of humans, who could well be viewed as trespassing on their terrain. Read and write to us your viewpoint.

For many of us with families, our children have become such a big part of our lives that we juggle our work and social life to include our next generation. Thus feng shui solutions that directly address beneficial things we can do to help our kids are always welcome. In this issue, we bring you two feature stories that directly address the well-being of children – how to ace exams, and how to ensure that your child’s bedroom will bring them good sleep, good health and also wonderful success luck as they grow.

On another subject, last month’s EMMY’s remind us that Television is fast overtaking movies in home entertainment. Indeed, the recent 69th Primetime Emmy Awards showed just how much good quality fare there is out there.

We want to highlight two big winners – The Handmaid’s Tale and Big Little Lies – merely by winning make them into must-watch shows, but many of the nominees will provide plenty of hours of viewing pleasure. Read our feature on the Emmy’s within, and be surprised at what we discovered what ALL this year’s winners had in common! Will truly enhance your faith in the power of the astrological elements you are born with!

These days, so much of our lives is connected with the Internet that many of us have forgotten the pleasures of reading from a ”real” book, yet it can be so nice to have your very own special sanctuary to store a special collection of your very own books? In this issue’s Architecturally Speaking, Chris Yeo talks about the Home Library. You can indeed consider creating your own library to add to the ambience and décor of your home!

Dato Kee Hua Chee meanwhile chats with Sue Wang, the brains behind Marina Bay Sands, Avenue K and KL Gateway Mall, the lady with all the answers it appears, to meeting competition from online buying head on. This marketing maestro is still optimistic about bricks and mortar outlets, as she believes there is no online substitute for a good day out with family and friends at a great restaurant or café experience at your local mall.

Our travel correspondent Helen Oon meanwhile takes us to Niseko in Japan, more well-known for their ski season, but pictures of her Autumn escapade there show that this part of Japan is beautiful any time of the year!

In the UK, attention has been focused on Princess Diana, and we are reminded that this year marks the 20th anniversary of her passing. Those of us old enough to recall her life, reading about her will be a reminder of just how special she truly was. It is as if she never left us and her “greatness as the people’s princess” is as potent as ever. This is true immortality. We celebrate her life in pictures within.

While the world can sometimes seem an uncertain place, natural disasters caused by elements we have absolutely no control over remind us that the little problems in life are really just that – little. Audrey Tan our journaling expert introduces the concept of the Gratitude Journal, giving wise advice on finding something small to be grateful for each day. Doing so can do so much for one’s mood and frame of mind. They say when you look back on your life, it is the little things that turn out to be the big things. Learn to love, and to live.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you at LILLIAN TOO’S FENG SHUI EXTRAVAGANZA 2018 where Lillian will show you how you can bring new light into your life in the new year of the Earth Dog. Don’t forget to book your tickets early ( and and MPH bookstores) to enjoy VIP seating, discounts and other special offers! She will be holding her event on Sunday 10th Dec 2017 at Suntec Convention Center, Singapore, and Sunday 17th Dec 2017 at Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur.

Be happy and stay safe this coming October!
