Marites Allen’s outlook for the Snake Year

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Marites Allen says that before you consult with a feng shui master, you must always check his or her credibility “in the same manner that they check if their doctors or lawyers are properly certified (and with reliable certificates). Check if these so-called masters are successful with their own lives. In other words, do they walk the talk? Do they live comfortably and enjoy good relationships? If they don’t, then you may have reasons to doubt if they’re really serious about their craft.”

On fake products proliferating in the market, she says, “What goes around comes around and karma has a way of getting back at people with insincere intentions. This is where I’m proud to say that World of Feng Shui products are unique and special.  We source our products from around the world to ensure the best quality at reasonable prices. Manufacturers from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Malaysia are tapped for authentic feng shui symbols and exciting new products are constantly developed in consultation with Lillian Too, the world’s largest-selling author on feng shui. We launch new products every year with specific dimensions, mantras and manufacture it at an auspicious time. Unfortunately, every new product we introduce gets copied everywhere.  Imitation may be the best form of flattery, but in feng shui it could lead to disastrous effects.”
