Denise Ho sings the praises of fung shui after shift to new digs
Singer Denise Ho Wan-sze doesn't look much like a fung shui believer, with her cool, rock-chick dress sense. But now that she's found a new home, she's converted.
Ho showed up to support the 30 Hour Famine last week as the World Vision event's guest of honour. The excited Ho said backstage that she had recently moved into a new flat.
'I thought about buying a property, but home prices are now extremely high,' she said. 'Even the rent I'm paying now is double what I paid in my old flat.'
But it was worth the money, she said. 'As soon as I moved in, I could feel a very good energy. It feels like the elevator moves faster and even my cat is better-behaved. It used to always wake me up in the morning but has stopped doing it since we moved.'
And the real deal, Ho said, was that she was getting booked for more jobs with bigger pay cheques.
Preparing for a musical due to open in October to celebrate her 10th year in the music business, Ho has been casting in both Hong Kong and Taiwan. Maybe her good friend, Canto-pop diva Joey Yung Cho-yee, could lend a hand?
'No, we could never afford to have her in the cast with our limited budget,' Ho said.
It might be too early to say 'never', especially now that she's got a magic apartment that can even tame a cat.
