Burning money and digging fung shui holes were part of the 'married couple games' played by fung shui master Tony Chan Chun-chuen and late tycoon Nina Wang Kung Yu-sum, the Court of First Instance heard yesterday. 'Every day we had a lot of activities, we played every day,' Mr Chan said. 'Fung shui was one of our interests. We [also] loved to play with model helicopters. We cooked together. We travelled together and we went to the countryside together.' Giving evidence at the hearing of the probate battle between him and the Chinachem Charitable Foundation for Wang's fortune, Mr Chan said burning money was like a 'married couple game' but not related to fung shui. On a boat trip once, Wang had suggested burning HK$10 and he had videotaped it. Mr Chan also said the first few holes at various Chinachem properties - described in court earlier - were dug on his instructions, and subsequent ones were Wang's idea. Contractor Wong Leung-koon told the court earlier that Mr Chan had ordered as many as 80 holes to be dug at properties around the city between 1992 and 1999 and again in 2005 and 2006. Yesterday the court was shown photographs of items retrieved from some of these holes, including a wooden puppet and the remains of a burnt HK$10 bill. Asked about the holes by Lawrence Lok Ying-kam SC, for the foundation, he said holes dug in May and June in 1995 were done on his instructions, while those dug after that were Wang's idea. In having them dug she had modified arrangements suggested in a book, Heavenly Plans and Layouts - Celestial Atlas Arrangement, given to Mr Chan by his late father, which Wang had burned as an offering after the father died. Mr Chan testified on Wednesday that his knowledge in fung shui was restricted to this book, which had 80 celestial plans. Yesterday he confessed he had faced difficulties in convincing his clients with his limited knowledge of fung shui, although his diary listed a wide range of client, including legislators and managerial staff of listed companies. Among them were former legislator Gilbert Leung Kam-ho, Golden Elephant Thai Restaurant founder Helen Wong, Kowloon Development Company non-executive director Tam Hee-chung, former executive director of Cheung Kong (Holdings) Albert Chow Nin-mow and late legislator Stephen Cheung Kam-chuen. He said he was only familiar with the first celestial plan, which aimed to improve a person's luck, and it was the only one on which he gave lectures to his students or used in advising his clients, including Wang. He said he had mentioned this plan during a lunch at which he first met Wang on March 12, 1992, when she had asked whether fung shui could help her find her missing husband, Teddy Wang Teh-huei. Mr Lok suggested he had in fact raised the matter to give Wang a message that he could help her in locating Teddy Wang. Mr Chan said he had not wanted to upset Wang and had also hoped he could get some business from her. Mr Lok also repeatedly challenged Mr Chan over a pile of lecture notes presented by one of his former fung shui students, Leung Kim-ho, which referred to numerous plans from the book, apart from the one Mr Chan said he knew. The court heard the notes were compiled by three students based on Mr Chan's lectures. But he said he knew nothing about them and could not remember giving any such lectures.
