The First house on the land that today contains Towkay Foo Nyit Tse's Falim House and the new development "Tin City" was a moderately sized 2-storet bungalow built by Towkay Foo Choo Choon. It was roughly square with a large porch and wooden elevations. Other features included a moon-gate front door and a spotlight above the porch as a Feng Shui addition to ward off "bad chi". Overall it was a strong home in terms of Feng Shui as it stood on a small hill overlooking its 27 acres of land, with water in front and the Menglembu hills behind. These all being important elements of the Feng Shui art.
