Fengshui Review: MOP Resale Flat at Alkaff LakeView in Bidadari (D13)
Published: 31 August 2023
As its name suggests, Alkaff LakeView will overlook the Alkaff Lake (to be completed in 2023), offering scenic lake views and greenery. In fengshui, water is often associated with wealth, wisdom and abundance. Does that mean that this Bidadari housing estate has a home fengshui edge over the rest?
Completed in 2019, Alkaff LakeView is an award-winning HDB development in the highly sought-after central region of Singapore. Located in District 13 (D13), Alkaff LakeView will fulfil its Minimum Occupancy Period (MOP) in the coming year, 2024.
Regardless of whether you are an Alkaff LakeView homeowner looking to improve your home fengshui or a potential home buyer, here’s our detailed fengshui review of this soon-to-MOP estate in Bidadari. Read on!
Alkaff LakeView: Landform fengshui
Located along the Alkaff District in Bidadari, Alkaff LakeView sits along Upper Aljunied Road, which lies on the Eastern Dragon, representative of the Wood element. It seems fitting that the estate is envisioned as an urban oasis in a garden-like setting with much greenery.
From a fengshui perspective, Alkaff LakeView 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.
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.
In addition to the exquisitely landscaped garden that comprises the multi-storey carpark, sky gardens and ground & perimeter planting, Alkaff LakeView’s proximity to the Alkaff Lake and Bidadari Park promises an overall tranquil stay with clear views – definitely a plus in terms of home fengshui!
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).
Earlier, we mentioned that water symbolises wealth and abundance. Interestingly, several playgrounds at Alkaff LakeView are designed with a water theme, which nurtures the landform fengshui, represented by the Wood element of the Eastern Dragon – implying conducive growth, especially for families with school-going children. Note that there are several schools in the vicinity such as Cedar Primary School, MOE Kindergarten @ Cedar and Cedar Girls’ Secondary School.
Amidst the garden-like setting at Alkaff LakeView, be mindful of trees as they can deflect incoming auspicious energies, so do take note if your unit is close to trees and plants. Also, while plants symbolise vitality and growth, it can introduce unwanted pests into our homes if they are too close to entrances.
Lifts are a great source of convenience in a high-rise setting, but homeowners should be aware that units located in close proximity to a lift (e.g. Stack 33, 35, 37, 39, 61, 67, 73) may encounter unstable magnetic fields at home. In fengshui, this implies household disharmony and health issues in the long run. Hence, do practise greater awareness, and consider displaying a Petrified Wood emblem in your living room.
In general, cross junctions and road bends imply potential Sha Qi or poison arrows, depending on traffic flow and other factors. Some stacks of Block 115C along Upper Aljunied Road are facing a cross junction while some at Block 115A are near to a T-junction. Units that are located at the lower storeys tend to be at a greater risk of such Road Sha. Since the residential units at Block 115A and 115C of Alkaff LakeView are located on the 6th floor and above, homeowners don’t need to worry too much.
Internal fengshui considerations
Homeowners should bear in mind the main orientation of your house, as it will directly influence the overall luck of your household member(s). The house orientation refers to the facing of your house, which can be measured from the main entrance where qi flows in.

Alkaff LakeView comprises 3 residential blocks of 531 units of 3- and 4-room flats at a height of 17 storeys. The majority of units in this soon-to-MOP housing estate face North or South, which is ideal in terms of home fengshui in the upcoming Period 9 and Period 1 (years 2024 – 2063).
Based on fengshui analysis, North and South are the most auspicious directions in these upcoming periods, followed by Northwest and Southeast. We have identified some Period 9 Auspicious Homes, as listed below. Do you live in any of these blocks?
While there is no fixed lucky direction that caters to everyone, those residing in Block 118 whose unit faces East or West may want to consider a fengshui consultation as these directions are not as favourable in the upcoming fengshui periods.
Besides that, if your main door faces your neighbour’s main door, do display a round light in between the two doors, or hang a Super 5 Shield at the top of your door frame. From a home fengshui viewpoint, conflicting energies between both households may arise and affect harmony if two main entrances face each other directly.
Unsure about your home fengshui at Alkaff LakeView? While it is recommended to engage a professional fengshui practitioner at the beginning of your home journey, it’s never too late to review your Bazi compatibility with your home or get a 2nd opinion to improve your home fengshui. Way Fengshui provides professional residential fengshui services with the ultimate aim of helping you to create a harmonious environment in your new home.
Did you know?
Period 9 corresponds with the South, representing a strong Fire element. As such, it is best to review and make adjustments if your bedroom falls in the South sector or has too much of the Fire element, which can disrupt sleep.
For example, the colours Red and Orange are associated with the Fire element. It is best to avoid such colours in the bedroom and opt for neutral colours or those that are suited to your Bazi (and those of your spouse).
For optimal fengshui benefits, you should also align your bed position with your Bazi needs. Note that flying stars tend to change position on a yearly basis, which may in turn influence your health or relationship for a particular year. It is best to consult a professional fengshui practitioner on how to best fengshui your bedroom for the long term.
As for those who are planning to conduct home renovation to tap on the benefitting energies of Period 9, don’t forget to choose an auspicious date before you proceed. We have a list of auspicious dates, readily available at the Way Almanac App – free for all to download!
