Washington Sycip, Founder of SGV & Co. and Ramon Magsaysay Awardee for International Understanding (1992)
“I do thank Marites Allen for keeping good feng shui at my home and office for many years now, especially for briefing me on ideal days for important decisions.
I remember that in choosing a date to celebrate my 90th birthday with friends and business associates last year, the odds favored Thursday, June 30th. As it turned out, the day was extremely lucky. On that day, President Benigno Aquino III conferred upon me the Order of Sikatuna, the highest presidential award. I was also able to raise funds amounting to Two Million Dollars (U$ 2 million) to be used for basic education and microfinance projects. For my health and longevity offering, Marites together with my family released 168 birds at our home in Forbes last June 30.
As I’ve said, there’s no harm in getting to know about feng shui and there’s every possibility that you might benefit from it.”
