Rita Avila, Award-winning Actress
(When asked what feng shui changed in her life and if she would go on with life with feng shui)
I will continue feng shui. It only makes us all better. It gives us better lives and you know some people think that it’s against religion, it’s NOT. I read that, I studied that. The only philosophy it has is believe in harmony, so there’s nothing wrong with that. We have to follow feng shui.
Samie Lim, Founding President/Chairman of Phil. Franchise Association
(When asked if he considers himself lucky)
Definitely, I am. As far as my family is concerned I am blessed with six children, five boys and a girl, the best parents could ask for. My siblings are also helpful and loving.
Ever since we started business, my main job was to look for new locations for stores and before we open, everything is feng shuied. You have to look for a place and you have to decide where the door will be and where the cashier will be. I guess that’s why we are the oldest appliance and furniture company. Marites Allen is definitely one of our trusted feng shui experts.
My father, Don Benito Lim, also says Marites is their favorite speaker at PESA Philippines, the Federation of Electrical and Electronics Suppliers and Manufacturers, of which he is a past president and honorary adviser.
Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Fashion Icon and Columnist
[Feng shui ] can only enhance 30% and that’s malaking bagay na, di ba and everything. I also hear people say that it’s anti-religion but I keep saying that it’s like energies. For me, it’s like gravity. You can’t see it but it exists. It’s not like, you believe in it but you won’t do anything about it. I mean you still have to work hard, you still have to do charities and everything like that. It’s just a matter of aligning yourself and talagang harnessing what’s already there. You still go around the basic principles of being good and trying to be helpful to others, but still you know... like for me I’m born in the year of the Rabbit so I’m not supposed to be having a good year, so I’ll just double up on my charity work and stuff. So there.
I never miss to give support and attend Marites Allen’s annual event…it truly gives us a heads up on how to maximize our luck for the next year….cool! Similarly I also make sure Marites is present during my Chinese New Year party at home.
Teresita Ang-See, Founding President of Kaisa Para sa Kaunlaran, Inc./Crusader against violence
(When asked where she gets her positive energy)
It’s my faith in God... that God will always take care of me. From prayers, I’m a very prayerful person. No matter what problems we face there is always God you can rely on to take care of us. So, you always try your best to make the house clean and declutter, throw away all the old papers and everything. I always believe that man should be in harmony with nature.
Gloria Diaz, Actress/Former Miss Universe
(When asked for three reasons for believing in the power of good luck)
I think I was lucky... one, when I won the pageant. Definitely I was not the prettiest, but I was the luckiest. I think when I made my first movie, I could hardly speak Tagalog and definitely I could not act but again it did well so I was again lucky; and then of course when I had my kids. I had my kids at 37 so I was lucky again.
