It’s important that you spend a bit of time to get to know me, my background, and my approach to Chinese metaphysics.

My background

About Me

I was born in Taiwan and came to Singapore when I was 4 months old. I went through the typical path of a Singaporean student, graduating from NUS Business School and the University Scholars Programme.

My affinity with Chinese metaphysics started when I was 18  when I picked up my first book on Chinese astrology that was lying around the house. This ancient art started off as a mere intrigue at the start, but life eventually started pushing me towards the direction of becoming a practitioner. It’s a long story.

You may know me as a BaZi consultant or feng shui master, but I rather you call me a Chinese metaphysics consultant and by my name. There’s no need to address me as “master”.

Read on to know my story.

It’s been a Crazy ride

The Journey So Far

The beginnings

This website had humble beginnings, with only 10+ visits per day when it first started under another domain name. Today, it’s one of the most visited sites on Chinese metaphysics with more than 12,000 visitors a month.

I write thought-provoking posts to get people to take another look at what Chinese metaphysics is supposed to be and how far it has strayed in modern-times. If you wish to benefit from this ancient art, educating yourself a little about its history and philosophy is important. It’s paramount to use this ancient art the way our ancestors intended if you truly wish to benefit from it.

Keep reading, and you’ll get to the part which explains everything and how I got started.

The Journey

I am a self-taught practitioner. I had no teacher and have no lineage. If that discomforts you, that’s fine.

I studied straight from the source material written in feudal China. I felt there was no need to learn from someone else’s watered-down content, especially when I’m fluent in Chinese since I was a child. I’m constantly learning, revising, and reading whatever I can get my hands on.

Fast-forward, I’ve served more than 3,500 clients – all with personalized reports, Q&As and conversations instead of generic ones you see being sold out there. The knowledge and experience I’ve acquired are unparalleled even when compared to other practitioners who have been in the field longer than me.

My Mission

My mission has always been to educate the public about this esoteric field and let everyone appreciate it for what it is – the wisdom passed down by our ancestors and the rich history behind it.

Superstition, misconceptions, and malpractices have plagued this field for the longest time, and metaphysics is harming more people than they are benefitting from it. I told myself I’ll do things differently and present Chinese metaphysics with the same spirit the Chinese sages developed it with.

Whatever you read on this site are genuine, unfiltered thoughts.

What’s In It For you

I have a lot of pride in what I do which a lot of people miscontrue as arrogance. I say this without ego, but I know where I stand against other practitioners in terms of knowledge and ethics in a very commercialized metaphysics industry where everything is sold as a quick fix to life’s problems. You don’t need me to tell you that life has no quick fixes.

It’s not my style to be gimmicky and find ways to make people part with their money and I refuse to portray metaphysics as what it’s being sold as today. I focus only on my purpose – to be the best and respected in my field, and give my clients an accurate reading and constructive discussion. Hopefully, clients get to discover the beauty of Chinese history and culture in the process.

What I’m Known For

My Specialization

I specialize in techniques that deemed popular in the Chinese metaphysics field. They are:

  • BaZi | 八字
  • Zi Wei Dou Shu | 紫微斗数
  • Qi Men Dun Jia | 奇门遁甲
  • Feng Shui | 风水
  • Date Selection | 择日
  • Name Selection | 姓名学

If you’re wondering how one can specialize in so many methods, it’s because their underlying theories are the same. Yin Yang, the 5 Elements, 9 Palaces, and astronomy are the fundamental building blocks of all Chinese metaphysics techniques.

I hope I don’t have to keep mentioning the fact that I studied directly from the source material, The rate of consultations I receive eventually allowed me to surpass most incumbent practitioners in terms of knowledge and experience. Most of my time reading, writing, and practicing instead of coming up with marketing material for the sake of a sale.

What sets me apart from other practitioners is that I use BaZi, Zi Wei Dou, and Qi Men Dun Jia simultaneously during consultations to give unparalleled insight and clarity.

Quick Snippets Of Information 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is BaZi | 八字?

BaZi is popularly known as the Four Pillars of Destiny. Laymen see it as a method of fortune-telling that maps out your life.

It’s one of the older techniques of forecasting one’s life based on the sexagenary cycle, the solar calendar and 24 solar terms. These were the basis of time measurement, and time needs to be measured first before patterns and cycles can be observed.

Your BaZi chart is a snapshot of time and the current state in which the laws are unfolding. BaZi consultations basically study these patterns, and use it to forecast one’s life and what’s to come. 

What is Zi Wei Dou Shu | 紫微斗数?

Zi Wei Dou Shu is a more advanced form of Chinese astrology. Instead of focusing on the sun and solar terms, it focuses on the stars. The primary stars used are the Polaris star also known as Zi Wei (紫微) which Zi Wei Dou Shu derived its name from. It also involves stars from the Big Dipper (北斗七星) and part of the Saggitarius constellation (南斗六星).

What is Qi Men Dun Jia | 奇门遁甲?

Qi Men Dun Jia is a divination method that was first developed for military expeditions. Divination involves a question and a response, so it is used when you have a question or wish to know the outcome of an action or event. 

It is a more short-term, tactical technique to seize opportunities and avoid pitfalls, and makes up for some of the gaps in macro-techniques like BaZi and Zi Wei Dou Shu.

Why use all three methods at the same time?

Each method has its pros and cons. Using all three methods I know gives you an extremely holistic view of what’s to come. Using a single method alone won’t achieve this.

It also makes me more efficient and helps make sure my analysis is on the right track because the three methods should paint the same story of someone’s life.

The Thing You Always Hear Me say

“Our ancestors wouldn’t spend centuries developing this field just to tell us life sucks and we can’t do anything about it.

No prizes for guessing who said this.

This Gets a little heavy

My Story & Fate

I know what everyone is thinking. I’m just another self-praising practitioner who is out to make easy money.

I did not enter this field motivated by the money. Life naturally pushed me towards being a practitioner. Things happened – and I needed to pay rent and eat better for the sake of my health.

I always prided myself on being different from other practitioners, and I want you to know my past and my story. It’s a heavy story, so bear with me.

There’s too much about Chinese metaphysics to tell you, and honestly, I don’t know where to start.

This is why I have my blog. I’d really encourage you to head there when you can so that you can approach Chinese metaphysics the right way.
