A Night Filled With Stars: A Joy Lim 2009 Year of the Earth Ox Eve Celebration!
Last Sunday, January 25, 2009, Joy Lim the Feng Shui Consultant to the Stars held her annual Feng Shui Event. She does this yearly as part of her continued service to the people who consult with her.
True to her calling, and unlike other Feng Shui events, she didn’t charge a single dime for this. Sadly, she has to make this invitational because she needs to control the crowd. Plus, she doesn’t really charge anything for the event.
Invitations were made based on the people who have been consulting her since she started Charms and Crystals and most importantly it was based on the Chinese astrological forecast of the person.
The invitation says it starts at 9PM, and true to Filipino’s attitude, people start trickling in at 9PM. Which for this occasion is perfectly fine because people attend this event to have fun and to welcome Year of the Earth Ox and be among the first few to receive the blessings brought about the Ox.
Knowing Joy she wouldn’t have settled anything less than the best for her ‘followers’. However, I was still surprised to see that she had ordered and personally blessed the biggest of image of Kwan Kong and Kwan Yin (next to the one in Lam Hay) that I have ever seen.
She said, she personally ordered the images based on what they are made of and on the energy that it emits.
She also has one of the most beautiful ‘Great Happy Buddha’ that I have ever seen.
Too add more good luck rather than plain entertainment, she also commissioned a Dragon and Lion dance group.
All this was done with the help of her ever-dependable right hand Canon Chiong, who I heard had to skipped lunch, much to the chagrin and concern of Joy, just to make sure everything goes smoothly for all the people who are attending the event.
Well-respected TV host, and talent manager Boy Abunda acted as emcee for the event. But before that he gave a very touching testimonial about Joy Lim’s and her type of Feng Shui.
According to Tito Boy, Joy has helped him in a lot of matters, but what he likes most about her is the fact that ‘she comes into the house with a big smile, and leave with an even bigger smile.’
Another one who gave a testimonial is former Radio DJ Sexytary, who is now known under her real name Karen, and is now a co-anchor of Joe Taruc in his radio program.
Last year, Sexytary lost two of her endorsements. And parts of the bread and butter of a DJ are endorsements, so understandably she panicked. The first person that came into her mind is Joy Lim, whom she has only seen on TV and read on papers.
She was fortunate enough to be able to get a free consultation meeting with Joy. After telling Joy her concerns, Joy recommended that she have Ruyi DZI Beads in a Green Stone. According to Joy that charm is for money and promotion.
She then told Joy that she is not after promotion; she just wants her endorsements back. But Joy advised her to just wear the charm.
Two weeks after she got her endorsements back, and she was also made as station supervisor. A promotion and regularization that she didn’t expect. Her goal for getting the charm was only short term, but the benefit that she got was long term.
I think the surprise testimonial came from Ogie Alcasid and Regine Velasquez. As we all know, showbiz press and so-called psychics, astrologers said that Regine and Ogie would break-up this year.
According to Ogie, they tried to ignore this ‘hula’, however, being a celebrity, a lot of people brought this matter out of proportion. He didn’t elaborate on how they met Joy, but according to Ogie, he felt that Joy has taken it as her responsibility to take care of the couple.
He said, the unlike other people, who will just focus on the negative, Joy instead focuses on the positive, and becomes pro-active when it comes to the negative. As I always said, what is the importance of knowing your fate if you cannot do anything about it.
I remember once when I called Joy. I was worried because my Feng Shui reading is not really very nice. When I voiced my concern with Joy, she assured not to worry and that we will work on it. She also added that I should continue to have faith in the Supreme Being, and that I should continue doing well. Her Feng Shui philosophy is not just about getting rich. Her Feng Shui philosophy is about Feng Shui itself and kindness and goodness.
Ogie and Regine revalidate this trait of Joy. I personally think that this is one of the things that I personally like most with Joy.
The next one who gave a testimonial is Cristina Tan of ABS-CBN. I don’t really know her but I was really touched with her testimony. She needs a car and mind you, she needs a car not for herself but for her mother. When she consulted Joy, Joy gave her some charms. Now she has a car. Joy clarified that the effects of the charm with Cristina is quite fast because she was so selfless. She enhanced the charms effect by being very positive.
There are a lot more people who gave their testimonies. Unfortunately, I was busily chatting with Sexytary that is why I’m unable to include them here. Sorry Joy! Si Sexytary kasi eh! We were talking about how you and your charms affected our lives. Yan ang excuse ko. Acceptable naman di ba?!
Besides it will take millions and millions of virtual page if I have to write down all the testimonies now.
Anyway, when the clock strikes twelve, people offered their wishes to the Supreme Being by doing a ritual. One of which is we wrote down our wishes on a piece of paper, and Joy provided us with a special ‘wishing paper’ and we offered our wishes to the Gods.
Those who are loveless and are looking for the love of their life. We also had a special ritual. I will not go into details but it include oranges, which was also provided by Joy Lim.
Of course, there was some fireworks also. According to Joy the light from the fireworks symbolizes a brighter Year of the Earth Ox, and it also acts as a blessing of light. And the sound drives away negative spirits and energies. By the way, the lucky foods that Joy served were also delicious. All in all, I believe the whole evening was really great. This is surely a fun way to greet the Year of the Earth Ox.
And true to Joy Lim’s fashion, everything is free! Remember, she is the only popular Feng Shui consultant who gives consultation for free. Nobody does that. Because for most Feng Shui consultants, consultation is their main bread and butter. However, Joy offers free consultation, she even gives out natural Feng Shui remedies. Her charms are the best and original (what are charms before Joy popularized them?) and are sold with minimum mark up and done just to be able to sustain expenses.
Again, everything that night was great, Joy, with the valuable help of Canon Chiong, made sure of that. If I have to complain about one thing, it would be about the photographer, who didn’t take my picture! Hehehe! ☺
Before I end, let me share with you as to who went to Joy’s event and the ‘highlights’.
