MANILA – Despite having his hands full dealing with the country’s problems, President Benigno Aquino III should make an effort to look for a life partner and get married this year, a Hong Kong-based feng shui master said Monday.
Joseph Chau Kam Ching, who has been practicing feng shui for over 30 years and has had clients from different parts of the globe, said Aquino’s luck will be “very weak” if he does not tie the knot this 2014.
Chau specifically said the President should consider marrying a woman who was born in July, August or October.
“If the President will get married this year, then he will have good luck. If he doesn’t get married this year, his luck will drop,” the feng shui master told ABS-CBNnews.com and select members of the media during the Chinese New Year press conference of the Mandarin Oriental Manila.
“I cannot say that the President will have bad luck, but his luck will be very weak, it will drop to the bottom… So think about what will happen,” he said.
When asked if this will greatly affect the country’s “luck,” Chau replied: “I won’t say [it directly]. You have to think about common sense.”
Aquino, who was born in the Year of the Rat, was linked last year to lawyer Mariness Ledesma and beauty queen-turned-actress Bianca Manalo.
After his two-year relationship with Valenzuela City councilor Shalani Soledad ended in 2010, the President was said to have dated stylist Liz Uy and TV host Grace Lee.
“He (Aquino) has to find a person born in July, August or October… Because I want to let the President have an enhanced luck. He has to choose the lucky period [for his partner],” Chau said.
Meanwhile, Chau advised Aquino to “turn on the fountain in Malacañang 24 hours for one year” to ward off bad luck during the Year of the Wood Horse.
“In Malacañang, the fountain is located in the southwest,” he noted. “There should be more fountains around the country.”
