ABCs then and now

Someone sent me these. Quite amusing.
Quite true too, viewing Gen M in the context of educating them.

Bad emotions

A bad emotion is like a hole, the moment you let yourself in it, there is no coming back. Therefore, only stay by the sides knowing it is there. Just don't fall into it.

Some very interesting people

I have not touched my camera for such a long time I feel quite out of touch as far as photography is concerned. I got my camera out today wanting to go to the bird park for some shots but sadly, it rained.

But what I did not realise was this whole bunch of photos which I took some months back, which much to my delight turned out quite OK -- the thing is, my photography skills and outcome has been pretty dismal lately to say the least. But to me, these shots are interesting only because of the subjects.

She is I think one of the most pretty woman I have ever seen around.

He looks quite worried. I pray and hope all is okay by now.

Ah ... getting the perfect shot. I know the feeling.

Negotiation in progress ... what do you think they are negotiating on? Stocks? Bonds?

Done deal ... please get it delivered first thing tomorrow morning.

Are you a tea person?

I have not been blogging much and do allow me with a little of indulging here :)

I have always had a penchant for tea. I love browsing in tea shops when I go travelling and I'd end up with boxes and boxes of them in variety. That was many years ago.

Now I am back at it, with a little more insight to it, thanks to the Internet.

These are my favourites, at least for now:

I know - it is not really considered as "tea" but a herbal infusion.
But still, it has a lovely flavour and it gives me a very soothing and calming effect.

Lady Earl Grey
I used to love Earl Grey Tea - tea with oil of begamot orange.
But Lady Earl Grey is wonderful, it is black tea with oil of bergamot, lemon peel and orange peel.

And this is my all-time favourite - green tea with roasted rice. Smells heavenly!

Making tea is something I look forward to doing: boiling the water, picking the tea I feel like for the time, infusing the tea and enjoying the aroma of it ... hmm, lovely ... but sometimes, I won't know which to infuse.

I now have quite a collection of tea in my office: Peppermint Tea, Black Tea, Jasmine Tea, Green Tea, Chrysanthemum Pu-Erh Tea, Mango Black Tea, Earl Grey Tea, Prince of Wales Tea, Darjeeling Tea, English Breakfast Tea, High Mountain Oolong Tea, Jasmine Green Tea, Java Green Tea, Green Tea & Lemon, Green Tea & Apple, Green Tea & Orange.
