We are just a week away from the start of the Chinese New Year, and I guess a lot of Pinoys (including me) are eager to welcome the Year of the Fire Rooster which falls on January 28, 2017!
Even though I dont have any Chinese blood in me, I always look forward to my yearly horoscope and curios as to how my animal sign would do in the coming year. I was lucky that I got an invite last week at New World Makati together with other members of the media to listen to New World Makati's Resident Feng Shui Expert, Princess Lim Fernandez, as she shared her insights on the Year of the Fire Rooster.
Feng shui expert Princess Lim Fernandez said those who were born in the Year of the Horse were going to be lucky this year. Ehem.. the horse just so happens to be my animal sign so i'm really feeling quite optimistic. She even gave us a personal reading based on the year date and time of my birth and it said: My money luck comes from fire. Therefore, the current year has this element and money luck will be favorable in this year 2017 Fire Rooster.
My Lucky Element is Metal and Water. Lucky colors are white, gold, blue, black, gray and silver.
My benefactors and helpful people are the Rabbit, Snake, Rooster and Pig.
