TEA IN MANDARIN CHARACTER



Very warm welcome to this UPLIFTING 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 NOT ONLY enrich our lives, but also uplift 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.

CORPORATE LESSON


VERY WARM WELCOME TO THE UPLIFTING BLOG

Recently I received from my Chief Editor of my blogs the following story, which I read with full excitement. That is the reason I decided to blog it out to share with you so as to keep you up, especially for those who had one way or the other to be phased out from employment due to the company rightsizing exercise or whatsoever terms you prescribed to.


The below story give you another perspective which may make you feel better especially when the retrenchment/ downsizing is carried out due to certain circumstances and not due to your fault. What is more important for you is to look forward and move ahead with your dream.


So, without much ado, I like to begin the story as follow:-


There was a farmer who collected horses; he only needed one more breed to complete his collection.


One day, he found out that his neighbor had the particular horse breed he needed. So, he constantly bothered his neighbor until he sold it to him. A month later, the horse became ill and he called the veterinarian, who said:
-Well, your horse has a virus. He must take this medicine for three days. I'll come back on the 3rd day and if he's not better, we're going to have to put him down.


Nearby, the goat listened closely to their conversation. The next day, they gave him the medicine and left. The goat approached the horse and said:
- Be strong, my friend. Get up or else they're going to put you to sleep!


On the second day, they gave him the medicine and left. The goat came back and said:
- Come on buddy, get up or else you're going to die! Come on, I'll help you get up. Let's go!
One, two, three...


On the third day, they came to give him the medicine and the vet said:
- Unfortunately, we're going to have to put him down tomorrow. Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses.

After they left, the goat approached the horse and said:
- Listen pal, it's now or never! Get up, come on! Have courage! Come on! Get up! Get up!

That's it, slowly! Great! Come on, one, two, three... Good, good. Now faster, come on....
Fantastic! Run, run more! Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, you're a champion!!!


All of a sudden, the owner came back, saw the horse running in the field and began shouting:
- It's a miracle! My horse is cured. This deserves a party. Let's kill the goat!


So, your story may not be worse than the goat above. As such, you should not be sad about it. Instead you should stand proud of it and move on with your life. Be mindful that life begins at the end of comfort zone. Give the last statement a serious thought, if you somehow feel difficult to acknowledge it.


Last but not least, you should now sit back and ponder before you look for its answer below.


Points for reflection: this often happens in the workplace. Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves the merit of success, or who's actually contributing the necessary support to make things happen.


LEARNING TO LIVE WITHOUT RECOGNITION IS A SKILL!


If anyone ever tells you that your work is unprofessional, remember: amateurs built the Ark and professionals built the Titanic.


If you are lifted up now, don't forget to spread it to your friends so as to make the similar impact on them as well. Thanks for doing so.


Thanks and seeing you again for more exciting articles.

HOW TO KEEP UP WITH GOAL


VERY WARM WELCOME TO THE UPLIFTING BLOG,


Have you ever wonder that goal setting is much easier than keeping up with it? You may have experienced so many failed pre set and noble goals despite so much efforts and time have been spent during its planning and implementation stage. There are many reasons for its failure and therefore it is more crucial for us to focus on our discussion topic on the latter issue so as to shed us some insight of it.


To me, goal and result are the two similar but significant terms that give rise to a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction every time when they met. However, every day is a seed, it comes with enough opportunities to help us solve problems, meet needs, improve self and achieve greater success. If you see it broadly, someone’s success is always tied up with your personal improvement. This is a fact whether you know it or not. A society, as a whole, is improved and developed when its inhabitants are informed and developed. Thus, you may attribute it to a system where a person’s improvement can influence or impact the whole world. History has well demonstrated and proven this point in case.




At time, goals just evaporate out of sight in our daily needs to achieve goals and enhance improvement. Commitments are sometimes neglected. Just take a hockey game for instance, the objective of each team is to score goals as many times as possible in order to win their opponent. But we often encounter situations where it ended without a team member hitting a goal even with extra time given.


Imagine how they could not put the ball into a goal post in the given time. Of course, they are due to many possible reasons. Every day is like a maze, with confusing turns but with a pattern if you closely observed it. Your ability and skill to analyse its patterns and understand them determines its passage. Do you agree with me? Just like our previous example of hockey game, each team is strategically structured to stop the other from scoring while they collaborate smartly among the team members to score as much as possible. A team will be more incline to score better if they are able to predict correctly the pattern of their opponents.


Similarly in life, everything has a pattern. That’s why success is not always out of strength or skill, but work according to the natural laws about anything and everything. There are three keys that will help you to keep track of your goal.


1. Stay Focus:


When you find a purpose, stay focus on it and success will be yours. There will always be goals to achieve. As long as there is progress in any venture there tend to be accompanied with new issues and innovative solutions. Increasing commitments may lead to the possibility of losing sight on the most important things. When it gets tough in hockey match, a team might lose focus of goals while trying to handle the surging offense of the other team. And there may be other adverse challenges to be overcome as well. Be mindful that you should not necessarily abandon other commitments just solely to achieve that particular one goal in mind. It is not wise to do so? To stay focus in concise definition is giving rise to each goal or commitment that required attention in its given time.


2. Consistency:

With consistent hit by sea waves, a rock at the beach will eventually give in. This is for sure that no progress will be achieved without consistency. Through consistent improvement over time, you will be perfect. Consistency is not mediocrity. Mediocrity is maintaining the status quo, even if it is much below the required standard whereas consistence is continual progress no matter how slow or gradual it is.


3. Strong Determination and Will Power:


Consistency cannot persist without determination and will power. As we all are aware that consistent progress is not without obstacles and failures, but what is more important is the ability to rise and improve on that count. Couple with determination, consistency will eventually overcome all barriers; that is the tested and proven ingredient for success. The world will always wait for a determined man to conquer.

Trust the above will give you useful insight of success. If it is so, please spread to others so that they can also benefit. Through the progress made by anyone, we will equally benefit in line with the saying, "What goes around, comes around." Thank you for doing so.


Hope to seeing you again and let us make a better tomorrow for us.

ST GEORGE'S CHURCH PENANG UPDATE

A VERY WARM WELCOME TO THE UPLIFTING BLOG.









                                     ST. GEORGE'S CHURCH PENANG UPDATE


VERY WARM WELCOME TO THIS UPLIFTING BLOG,
This is another update of my recent visit to this church. You may refresh yourself at my preceding article on this church, which was under renovation at that time, by clicking at the link below. Happy reading.


In today's discussion, I decided to let the photos take you through and speak for itself. Photo speaks a thousand words. Now, you can see for yourself that the clock has been installed to its former shine and rich historical building. Please give us your feedback in regard to its original clock, if you have any. Better still, if you could furnish us with a copy of its photo for our inclusion in this article so as to enrich it. By doing so, we somehow leave a legacy for the future generation to see and appreciate our good work here.


With its new facelift of paint, this remarkable building can stand proudly tall with its surrounding peers. I am sure that these buildings will attract lots of tourists, both local and foreign. This will generate another income stream for this state which had been long neglected.


As such, I urge all Penangites to work as a united force to promote this Island of the Orient, it had attained at my childhood's time. To start the ball rolling, I will chip in to do my part by constantly contributing articles to this effect.

If you find this article useful, please help me to spread out to your circle of contacts so that our dream of restoring Penang will come to reality eventually. More importantly, it will reach out and benefit others. Thank you.

To restore its former glory,




James Oh
