Feb BTO 2021: Alkaff Breeze Fengshui Unit Review
Published: 5 September 2023
Launched in HDB’s February 2021 Build-To-Order (BTO) exercise, Alkaff Breeze is 1 of the last 3 housing developments within the highly sought-after Bidadari township, which was once upon a time, a cemetery.
Are you one of the lucky homeowners awaiting TOP? With the projected completion date aligning with the upcoming fengshui Period 9 in the year 2024, it’s never too early to start preparing for renovation, so that you can tap on the benefiting energies while avoiding potential home fengshui conflicts.
Here’s your in-depth fengshui review on Alkaff Breeze. Read on!
Alkaff Breeze: Landform fengshui
Bounded by Upper Aljunied Road and Alkaff Crescent, Alkaff Breeze lies on the Eastern Dragon, representative of the Wood element. Like its neighbouring housing estates, this upcoming BTO is designed with lush greenery – corresponding with the element of the Eastern Dragon.
From a fengshui perspective, Alkaff Breeze falls between the formations of “Transporting Cart of Gold and Jade” and the “White Crane Spreading its Wings”. This is a propitious land that is beneficial to career developments. Those who are ambitious shall be able to stand out from the crowd and attain great achievements. Industries that are suitable for this area include design, advertising, furniture, information, commerce, finance, accounting, investments, etc. Business owners can also consider making overseas expansions.
Cranes are considered to be rare and precious. Hence, residents in this area are recommended to expand their family for greater fortune. To better retain wealth luck, residential units and shophouses are best to be renovated or revamped from time to time.
Internal fengshui considerations
The main orientation of your house will directly influence the overall luck of your household member(s). This house orientation refers to the facing of your house, which can be measured from the main entrance where qi flows in.
Tip: Did you know there’s a Luopan (fengshui compass) in the Way Almanac App? You can download our app for free to measure your home orientation.
Alkaff Breeze comprises 3 residential blocks of 353 units of 4- and 5-room flats, ranging from 14 to 16 storeys. Most units are facing North or South, which is highly favourable.
Based on fengshui analysis, North and South are the most auspicious directions in the upcoming Period 9 and Period 1 (years 2024 – 2063), followed by Northwest and Southeast. We have categorised the units under the Period 9 Auspicious Home Ranking chart, as listed below.
While there is no fixed lucky direction that caters to everyone, those residing in a unit that faces West should consider a fengshui consultation as this direction is not as favourable in the upcoming fengshui periods.
As Period 9 corresponds with the South, representing a strong Fire element, it is good to ensure that your premises is balanced in energy, otherwise excessive Fire influence can result in anxiety and restlessness, which would in turn affect health and household harmony. Homeowners can consider incorporating a water feature to balance the Fire element with Water.
If in doubt, it is best to consult a professional fengshui practitioner for a suitable water feature position. It is critical to display your water feature in the right place, so as to avoid adverse impacts on health, wealth and relationships in the household.
External fengshui considerations
As one’s external environment accounts for more than interior considerations, it is important to consider features of the surrounding space when selecting a new home.
Located across the road from Alkaff Lake (soon-to-be-completed), Alkaff Breeze enjoys the convenience of various amenities and park facilities like its neighbouring estate, the Alkaff Lakeview. In landscape fengshui, a household is considered auspicious if there is gently-moving water (e.g. lake) near your home. This implies a potential to gather qi (聚气) amidst a vibrant surrounding (人气).
Nevertheless, those who are seeking greater privacy may want to consider the inner stacks, as Blk 119A along Alkaff Crescent faces Cedar Primary School and Cedar Girls’ Secondary School, and are bound to experience greater noise levels during active school hours.
Homeowners who have chosen a unit along Upper Aljunied Road are also likely to face higher traffic and noise disturbances, with its proximity to the site reserved for a nursing home and polyclinic. To reduce noise disturbances, homeowners may consider installing sound insulation.
The proximity of a nursing home and polyclinic next to Alkaff Breeze may cause some residents to feel uneasy, as these establishments are considered to be Yin in nature. If one has such reserves, it is possible that the unease may result in physical and mental fatigue in the long run. Nevertheless, we believe most homeowners would have considered this before choosing a unit.
It’d also help if your unit is on a higher floor, but do keep in mind that polyclinics – unlike hospitals – don’t operate around the clock. Even though some units would be facing the buildings directly, noises would be kept within operating hours in the day. Should you still feel uneasy or would like to consult a professional fengshui practitioner for a home fengshui assessment, please feel free to get in touch.
Did you know?
As mentioned earlier, Period 9 corresponds with the South, representing a strong Fire element. As such, one should be mindful of locating important spaces within your premises. For example, it is best to make adjustments if your stove (also of fire element) is facing South, otherwise too much fire energy can cause instability and burnout for members in the household.
In fengshui, the stove represents “the female owner of the house”. As such, the state of the stove in your house represents the condition of your mother or wife. If your stove happens to face South, you are highly recommended to consult a professional fengshui master for appropriate fengshui measures.
As for those who are planning to conduct home renovation or move in, don’t forget to choose an auspicious date before you proceed. The information is readily available at the Way Almanac App free for all to download!
