Clog Clutter

 

Updated : Apr 27, 2009


One of Hong Kong's tallest skyscrapers has declined to hold a Dutch charity exhibition of clogs because of worries the clunky footwear will bring bad luck, a report said.

The Cheung Kong Center refused to host the show, which was organised by the Dutch consulate, because of feng shui, a diplomat told the Sunday Morning Post. Well clog effectively suggest clutter something feng shui inventors must have hated.

The tower's management said the wooden footwear show would cause bad luck, because the Cantonese word for shoes, hai, sounds similar to a sigh of exasperation, the English-language paper said.

"Cheung Kong Center rejected the exhibition because of the Chinese meaning of wooden shoes. I don't understand. It is difficult to explain as I don't know how to say shoes in Chinese," an unnamed member of staff at the consulate told the paper.

The exhibition, part of an effort to promote Dutch culture, which will raise money for Chinese children, is now being held at another tower in Hong Kong, the paper said.
Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese system, used to enhance positive energy and good luck.

The system is still very influential in superstitious Hong Kong, and highly-paid feng shui consultants are often employed to advise on the location and design of new buildings, as well as give individuals advice on how to improve their luck.

VeryHappyPig doesn’t know much about feng shui. Our only dealings with the ancient Chinese art of furniture removal is when Mrs VHP gets us to move the couch, not because she is compulsively addicted to decorating and redecorating, but because of ‘feng Shui’.

By all accounts if VHP doesn’t move the couch and the sun light doesn’t hit of the back wall or the passage for good energy is blocked we could have years of bad luck, which ‘could even put the marriage under strain’. Well VHP believes if I have to lift another couch and strain my back the marriage could be over, because I would be out the door.

VHP’s contempt for all things Feng Shui, however, was lessened by our latest story. Not only does it, like all VHP stories, bring a smile to your face, but anything that promotes the removal of shoes is ok in VeryHappyPig’s book. De-cluttering Miss VHP’s shoe closet can only be a bonus.
