Chuan participated in Master Yen Pen¡¦s Feng Shui classes in the
1950¡¦s. He learned Feng Shui and became very competent, in the process
turned into a consultant to many rich and famous people in Singapore.
In the Nanyang
Siang Pau - Sunday Edition of 12 April 1987, there was an article
about one of the Feng Shui analysis done by Master Hung Chuan which
concerned the Hyatt Hotel in Singapore.
He did this
analysis in 1973 when the occupancy ratio at the Hyatt was around
40%. At the time of the implementation in 1973, Master Hung Chuan
chose an auspicious date and time to make the existing fountain
operational at 10am. On the very same day at 2pm, the Hyatt received
a call that a 747 flight had been delayed and rooms were required
for the 380 passengers. On the fourth day after the implementation,
the hotel was fully booked. On redesigning and completion, the Hyatt
experienced growth in occupancy to around 57% in the first year,
69% in the second year and 75% in the third year. He also made a
prediction that after 10 years from his date of analysis the Hyatt
would have a second entrance, which did happen in 1984. Astonishingly,
in 1979, the Hyatt was experiencing 100% occupancy rates, requiring
an extension which happened in 1984.
We were told
that Master Hung Chuan informed the Singapore Hyatt that a renovation
would be needed to be carried out by 1983 / 84 in order to accommodate
the change in Feng Shui reigning Period from 6 to 7.
