Published: 8 August 2023

Inspired by the “Syakkei” concept of borrowing scenery from the biodiversity environment, The Woodleigh Residences visually connects residents to the greenery in Bidadari Park and Alkaff Lake, and incorporates Japanese features meant for residents to enjoy nature amidst the convenient location in Bidadari with easy accessibility to many amenities. 

While that all seems very attractive, The Woodleigh Residences was recently featured in the news where homeowners were frustrated by long waiting times to use the car park as they share the same entrance with the carpark of the mall, which is also part of the development. 

While it may take some time to improve the traffic situation, homeowners can take the opportunity to review your residential fengshui so as to improve and maintain all aspects of life for you and your family. Here’s our in-depth fengshui review on The Woodleigh Residences for your consideration. Read on!

Woodleigh Residences: Landform fengshui

Located at Bidadari Park Drive, The Woodleigh Residences sits alongside various upcoming BTO housing developments in the new Bidadari estate. This luxury condo resides on the Eastern Dragon, representative of the Wood element.

From a fengshui perspective, The Woodleigh Residences is part of the “Transporting Cart of Gold and Jade” formation. This is a propitious land that is suitable for industries such as commerce, finance, accounting, investments, etc. To improve or retain wealth luck, those who are living or doing businesses here are recommended to conduct renovation or a revamp from time to time.

Internal fengshui considerations

When it comes to choosing an ideal unit, keep in mind that the main orientation of a house will directly influence the overall luck of its residents. The house orientation refers to the facing of your house, which can be measured from the main entrance where qi flows in.


The Woodleigh Residences provides 667 residential units across 11 blocks at 11-storey each and a 2-storey shopping podium. There are 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom and 4-bedroom units with standard and deluxe options. Based on fengshui analysis, North and South are the most auspicious directions in the upcoming Periods 9 and 1 (years 2024 – 2063), and Northwest and Southeast are the second most auspicious directions.

Hence, it is recommended to choose a unit that faces either of these directions or lies at the border of these directions to tap on the positive energies. Homeowners can rejoice as several units at The Woodleigh Residences face the above-mentioned auspicious directions. The following list shows the blocks and units with favourable home orientation for your reference:

North-facing units

Block 13: Stack 1

Block 15: Stack 5, 6, 8

Block 17: Stack 9, 10, 12

Block 27: Stack 47

Block 29: Stack 50, 51

Block 31: Stack 54, 55

Block 33: Stack 58

Note that there is no fixed lucky direction that caters to everyone. It can be a daunting task to establish and maintain an ideal home, especially one with mediocre fengshui. When in doubt, you may like to leave it to the professionals. Way Fengshui provides end-to-end fengshui services from selecting an ideal unit to helping you create a harmonious environment in your new home.

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.

At The Woodleigh Residences, there are many common facilities that provide recreation options for residents. Nevertheless, certain blocks are bound to experience greater noise levels, e.g. if you are near to the kids water play area or facing the BBQ pavilion (lower floor units must be mindful of smoke). 

Also, traffic noises from upper Serangoon Road and ongoing construction in the developing Bidadari estate indicate noise pollution that may affect residents’ living quality. Homeowners may want to consider installing sound insulation to reduce noise disturbances from the external environment. 

Homeowners should also take note that high-rise buildings in proximity present a potential risk of conflicts such as Tian Zhan Sha (home’s frontage facing an opening between two or more building structures that funnel negative energies), corner Sha (角煞) where sharp corners present hidden threats, etc. At The Woodleigh Residences, certain blocks are built relatively near to one another, indicating potential conflicts. If in doubt, consider seeking advice from a professional fengshui practitioner.  

Besides that, some units in this luxury condo are facing each other. In the fengshui context, this will be unfavourable for both households as there is direct conflicting energy. To improve the situation, homeowners can consider placing a round light in between the two doors, or to hang a Liuli pendant  at the top of your door frame.

Last but not least, some units have their private lift that spells convenience and privacy. Nevertheless, this proximity (where the lift is part of the apartment) may cause an unstable magnetic field at home, leading to household disharmony and health issues. Residents are advised to practise greater awareness, and consider displaying a Petrified Wood emblem in your living room.

Did you know?

In Singapore where space is always a constraint, especially in new residential developments, mirrors are often installed at home to make a space look bigger. However, did you know that mirrors are portals for energy to enter and exit? 

Therefore, mirrors have to be displayed carefully. It is best to keep mirrors out of sight from where you’re sleeping. Adhering to this fengshui tip for mirrors in the bedroom can help couples to avoid frictions, as conflicts can occur with the presence of mirrors. One should also avoid having too many mirrors as it can disrupt harmony and happiness in the household.
