If you go to Pak Li Kopitiam at Section 7 of Shah Alam, you would notice the beautiful water fountain at the corner of the shop. They don't just put it there for decoration, the purpose of it's existence goes deeper.
It's the feng shui thingy. Many chinese would built a fountain, with water flowing towards the shop or the house. This signify the 'shui' or water (but also mean money) would flow into the shop or the house continuously.
The feng shui thingy is difficult to be understood (at least from my point of view, for I don't believe in feng shui). For instance, sometime we got fed up with poor services of the kopitiam, and sometimes the food prepared is not up to our expectation, but then we still come here for our meals. If these 'flaw' were to be spotted on other restaurants, we would have already ban the shop long ago. Yet, we still come here. Kan Pn Tod-tod dan Pn Sue-sue?
Of course it's not as simple as just putting a fountain right in front of the shop, some calculation and careful positioning are required. Miss calculation will bring in different things. Real example: Once there was this person who always believing in feng shui came and visited us at our home. My wife had been dreaming of having a fountain with fish pond right in front of our house. But the person warned my wife not to do so by whispering to my wife's ear. I was curious so I asked my wife what the person had said after she had left our house. My wife said, "she said, if I were to set up a fountain and fish pond here, we won't get rich. Worse, my husband (refers to me!) will look for another wife'. Pulaaakkk....
