Opening Ceremony of Les Ottoman Hotel in Turkey
1st - 7th July 2006
Grand Master Yap Cheng Hai and wife were recently guests of honour at the opening ceremony of the newly refurbished Les Ottoman Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey. Prior to that, the hotelís owner had sought Grand Master Yapís Feng Shui expertise and skills to ensure that the hotelís Feng Shui is in harmony. The final evaluation conducted by Grand Master Yap, who was assisted by his student Angelika Manzulli, found nothing lacking and that everything was in excellent order.
The quaint hotel, formerly the private residence of a royal prince, had been undergoing extensive renovation for the last three years. The opening ceremony, which was held privately, was followed by traditional Chinese offerings of incense, food and fruits for a smooth and successful business.
Grand Master Yap had no other official functions to attend to in Turkey. However, he did take the opportunity to have a few days of sight-seeing and travelling in the country.
