Lillian Too

Lillian Too (born 1946 in Penang) is a best-selling author, television personality and Feng Shui practitioner from Malaysia. She has written over 80 books on the subject of Feng Shui, which have been translated into 30 languages. Her books have sold well in excess of 6 million copies, making bestseller lists around the globe.

A graduate with an MBA from the Harvard Business School in 1976, Lillian embarked on a career in the corporate world and became the first woman in Malaysia to head a public listed company. In 1982, she became the first woman in Asia to be appointed CEO of a bank (Hong Kong’s Dao Heng bank). After her stint in banking, she worked with prominent Hong Kong tycoon, Dickson Poon (former husband of Michelle Yeoh), as executive deputy chairman of his group of companies.

She is married with one daughter, Jennifer.

World of Feng Shui

After retiring from a lucrative career in the banking and corporate world, Lillian founded World of Feng Shui, a feng shui merchandising and franchising company, where she is the chairman. The franchise has stores in Brunei, Vietnam, Bangkok, Calcutta, Manila, Cebu, Tokyo, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Toronto, London, the Netherlands, Brussels, Madrid, Barcelona, Sydney, Melbourne, five stores in Indonesia and 23 stores in Malaysia. The franchise also has an online store,, which claims to be the world’s “first online feng shui magazine”. Lillian is also the publisher of Feng Shui World magazine, a bi-monthly publication.

Lillian founded the Lillian Too Certified Consultants Institute, which runs correspondence courses and certification programs in feng shui. She also has a roadshow called Lillian Too’s Feng Shui Extravaganza which was broadcast on the satellite television channel, Astro.

In 2006, she appeared in advertisements for the Malaysian mobile telephone company Celcom, together with her daughter, Jennifer Too.

Tibetan Buddhist practice

In 1997, Too met Tibetan lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche in Bodhgaya and took refuge with him. She now refers to Lama Zopa as her "precious holy guru," and a subpage of her website is devoted to him. "The Buddha Book" describes her experience with Tibetan Buddhism in more detail, and recommends various practices promoted by the FPMT, a network of dharma centers co-founded by Lama Zopa. (An appendix of the same book lists worldwide addresses of these centers.) Too is presently (2008) president and centre director of the FPMT's Losang Drakpa Centre in Selangor, Malaysia.
