feng shui is very much a part of pinoy culture, whether one is tsinoy or not. people get chinese buddhas to bring fortune to their homes -- tsai shen is the god of wealth. understanding the chinese gods, despite mao and his revolution, is a fascinating journey into china's past. which may also explain our fascination with the now-awakened giant of asia.
