Very warm welcome to this LIFE ENRICHING BLOG,

I hope you too like the lovely photo, which I obtained it from one of persons, Jenny Yong of China, I engaged with through Facebook. I must thank her so much for her kindness of allowing me to display it in my blog for your viewing pleasure.

Tell me what you could see from the above photo. You may compare the wording from other images at the side bars of my blog. I am sure that the above photo conveys many meanings to you. For those who understand Mandarin, most likely recognise its meaning as it form the word, TEA, in Mandarin character. Now, you know the reason behind why I displayed the lovely photo of 'TEA" in this blog. Some of you may well aware that the conventional Chinese characters are in the form of pictorial form.

In this connection, may someone help me to explain how and why this word was first created in this manner? Then it may help you as to why the creator of the piece of art used two little white flowers at the top of the word? Why the roof, just below the two flowers, is in green? What pink and brown colours mean here?

By now, what I can say for sure that we need some imagination to figure out its true meaning. Please share with us what you see there. Do not worry because there is no right answer to it. Who dare to say you are wrong to interpret it in the way you see it. Just a clue for someone who has not see anything from it, what you need to do is stare at it for long and slowly and surely, the picture will then appear by itself.

To truly enjoy a good brew tea, you must be very patient for it. Just like seeing the above picture. At the end of the day, the tea must give you a pure, bitter and sweet taste. Its pureness must be preserved and you need the skill to brew it. If you have not, don't worry. Practice, practice and proactive will make you perfect. It is just like any trade.

With this lovely piece of art, I am pretty sure it will enrich our lives. Furthermore, how would you feel if you are being served with good quality of tea right now. And you have the time to savour it. If it is really your taste, then may I invite you to join us in this tea blogsphere. Let us work together to bring happiness and enriching life through tea to the people at large, so as to make our lives more meaningful. This is the basic function of having tea together. Only through sharing it, we can make it prospers.

Thanks and seeing you again.
