Oct 2023 BTO: Rajah Residences Fengshui Unit Review
Published: 23 October 2023
Launched in the latest HDB’s October 2023 Build-To-Order (BTO) exercise, Rajah Residences is one of the mature estates projects offered in the Kallang/Whampoa district, designated to be built near the Whampoa River.
Besides its proximity to nature, this upcoming BTO is also conveniently near to a bus terminal and several places of worship. Could it be your ideal fengshui home or a good property investment?
Read on as we take an in-depth fengshui review on Rajah Residences!
Rajah Residences: Landform fengshui
Bounded by Jalan Rajah and Kim Keat Road, Rajah Residences is a stone’s throw away from Tenteram Vantage and sits on the Southern Dragon, aka the Wealth Dragon. Like its neighbouring new BTO, it is part of the fengshui land formation known as ‘Five Snakes Battling a White Crocodile”.
Here, the Kallang River complements four other waterways, namely Rochor River, Whampoa River, Geylang River and Pelton Canal. With abundant water sources in the area, does that indicate greater wealth opportunities for residents in Kallang?
Well, the river mouth is shaped like a crocodile’s mouth, where fast-flowing undercurrents and dangers lurk. Older Singaporeans may recall that developments at Kallang River precede that of Singapore River, but growth is slow due to distracting competitions between the Five Snakes. The diversion of the river also affects the land formation.
Hence, in spite of its prime location and proximity to central Singapore, Kallang boasts an idyllic and quiet environment – ideal for tranquil living, yet conveniently close to central Singapore.
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 typically be measured from the main entrance where qi flows in.
Rajah Residences comprises 2 residential blocks that offer 739 units of 2-room Flexi and 4-room flats, ranging from 32 to 40 storeys.
Based on fengshui analysis, North and South are the most auspicious directions in the upcoming Period 9 and 1 (years 2024 – 2063), and Northwest and Southeast are the second most auspicious directions. 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.
We have categorised the units at Rajah Residences under the Period 9 Auspicious Home Ranking chart, as listed below.
Note that there is no fixed lucky direction that caters to everyone. If 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.
This is especially if your unit is facing the least favourable direction, i.e. Northeast or Southwest. Getting a reliable fengshui consultation can help you to clear doubts and ensure that your household thrive in the coming Period 9 .
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.
Nestled amongst a residential neighbourhood, the name ‘Rajah Residences‘ reflects its location with several amenities such as Zhongshan Mall, Whampoa Market and Food Centre and Balestier and Shaw Plaza. While this spells convenience for future homeowners, human traffic and activities are bound to be higher, implying sound pollution.
For those who prefer great privacy and peace, you may want to consider installing sound insulation, especially if you are located on a lower floor. Another point to note is the proximity to the National Kidney Foundation’s headquarters, located just next to the BTO. This medical centre operates daily, and slightly beyond average office hours.
As such, stack 158, 160, 162, 172 and 174 that are facing NKF’s HQ may encounter some Sound Sha [声煞] and Light Sha [光煞]. Also, medical centres are Yin in nature and the knowledge of staying in close proximity to one may cause unease to some people, possibly leading them to experience physical and mental fatigue. If you are uncomfortable with the idea of being near a medical facility, consider choosing a unit on a higher floor or to opt for other stacks.
Within Rajah Residences, stack 152, 188 and 190 face the MSCP directly. Those who are choosing the lower storeys (less than 7 storey) may encounter fengshui conflicting forces (煞气) such as noise pollution (噪音) and headlight flashes from moving cars. This could cause disturbances to daily life such as insomnia. To counter this, homeowners can consider installing a window blind.
Did you know?
The Kun sector, located in the Southwest of your home, is one area that you should not overlook! It represents the mother (matriarch energy), which denotes empathy, harmony and relationships.
The main element of this area is Earth, hence water features are recommended here. To ensure good health and stable emotions, plants should not be placed in this area. Also, this is a sector that should not be in the kitchen, toilet or storeroom.
For those who are scratching your head over where the Southwest sector in your home is, don’t worry! You are just a step from improving your home fengshui and luck. Read this to locate the sectors within your living space.
Besides that, keep a lookout for the South sector / facing as it corresponds with the upcoming Period 9, and it represents a strong Fire element. For example, adjustments are recommended 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. If your stove happens to face South, consider consulting a professional fengshui master for appropriate fengshui measures.
Which fengshui BTO units to choose in Rajah Residences?
As with most things in life, getting it right from the start will save you lots of effort. More than just the correct placement of furniture or avoiding certain colours, home fengshui looks into compatibility amongst the homeowners and your living spaces.
Rajah Residences offers great convenience with its prime location but the majority of its units face the least favourable directions in Period 9. As such, it is best for affected homeowners to consult a fengshui practitioner for a detailed home fengshui review.
Besides selecting a unit that is auspicious in the reigning luck cycle, remember that the unit should also be in a direction that suits your bazi. A fengshui unit can help you to create a harmonious home, improve mood and energy, and attract opportunities and benefactors.
