About 20,000 people attended the fair which ended yesterday.
Earlier, feng shui master Mak Foo Weng urged visitors to pay attention to the surroundings of their new property.
“Do not buy a home or shop near a graveyard, hospital, police station and even temple.
“These places will produce bad luck and absorb good energy,” he explained.
He said people should avoid units located at the end of streets or around a roundabout.
“These places will have the weakest feng shui attraction,” he said in his talk called ‘Internal and External Feng Shui’. - By The Star
