I do believe in Feng Shui as it tries to balance the various energy (fire, water, etc) surrounding your body and the place you live.

I don't think it's a tradition of the past.

Zhejiang Uni has such a department. People actually go to college and get a degree of Fengshui.

Yes, but today it's called "interior design".

Some fengshui is absolutely practical:

Don't put a bathroom next to a kitchen or where you store food. Makes perfect sense, especially in the past

Have windows facing certain directions. Sure optimizes the light during the daytime, etc.

Having plants increases "energy". Well, it provides O2 and has an effect on the human psyche.

Of course, some is folklore, but every culture has their own that is still practiced, and even if it is no longer believed as much, it is still done. In the US, people sometimes still hang a horseshow over their doors....

FengShui is really practical and useful.

It tells people how to do but without reasons why to do, that's why some people think it is ridiculous and some feel it miraculous.

I believe it and have used used many times to help people with health and emotional issues. There will always be things in life science nor man can explain with logic alone.

"There will always be things in life science nor man can explain with logic alone."

Actually, everything can be explained with logic. Anything that can't be explained with logic is just not yet fully understood. This is why we have scientific theory.

When humans lack the knowledge of something that we haven't discovered or fully understood yet, we create things like religion and TCM to explain them.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
