In Southeast Asia it is said that when Buddha's mother was about to give birth, she dreamt a white elephant came to her offering a lotus, symbol of purity and knowledge. When Buddha is depicted riding an elephant, it is believe it will bring good luck and health. Putu Oka mahendra transforms legend into a mesmerizing ceramic teapot featuring a rattan handle.
The Laughing Buddha is an interpretation of the Bodhisattva Maitreya, the Buddha predicted to succeed Gautama Buddha in the future. He is based on an eccentric Chinese Chan monk who lived in the time of the Liang Dynasty (502- 557). His image is almost al

A sommelier is usually a person who helps choose a fancy wine to go with your dinner, but Hong Kong now has sommeliers for quite a different drink: tea. Kelvin Ng Chi-chuen's full-time job is to guide customers at the InterContinental Hong Kong's Chinese restaurant on which teas to drink with their food. He's also such a connoisseur that even when he goes to Chinese restaurants with his wife and children, he takes his own tea leaves with him. "Of course, they might not be willing, but I'll say, 'This is the kind of tea that my family and I are used to, so just give me a pot of hot water'. If it's a walk-in, then of course I won't do it, but if it's near where I live and the restaurants that I'm used to, then they know what I like. Like many Chinese tea lovers, Ng has his own set of teapots, tea cups, and a tea tray that includes a draining rack and trough at the bottom. When he washes the pot and cups with hot water before he brews the tea, the trough catches the excess water. The thirty-something Ng has been the tea sommelier at Yan Toh Heen at the InterContinental since April 2014. Now he scouts tea shops in Hong Kong for new supplies, writes the descriptions in the restaurant's tea menu, and talks to customers about... He's got this position at a time when more and more people are getting interested in tea, including in the US. There's so much interest in tea that even at Coffee Fest, a trade show for speciality coffee, "there was equal excitement about tea as... From 1990 to 2014, the market for tea in the US has gone from just less than US$2 billion to more than US$10 billion, according to the Tea Association of the USA. There hasn't always been this much interest, and even Ng developed his taste over time. Every child likes sweet drinks," Ng says. "When we went out for dinner, I always wanted Coke, but of course my parents and grandmother would say that's bad for me, so I could only have tea. At that moment, I couldn't have Coke, so I drank tea, and maybe if I was well-behaved, I'd get a toy. "Even though I didn't like it, the moment was conducive to me being exposed to tea. But I didn't truly like it until I started working. Ng had to drop out of secondary school to provide for his family because his father, the family's sole breadwinner, got sick. Ng was an office worker and a waiter at restaurants before arriving at the InterContinental. But he didn't get interested in tea until one day 15 years ago, when he came home frustrated with work and decided to make some tea with his grandmother's prized teapot and Pu'er tea leaves. I really wanted tea of my own accord and that was the first time it happened. The experience calmed him down, and since then he's been setting aside an hour or two each week to drink tea. Ng started at Yan Toh Heen as a waiter, but the management realised that he liked tea and drank a lot of it, so they asked him to manage the restaurant's tea collection and later gave him the title of tea sommelier. The house teas cost only HK$24 per meal, but the premium Chinese teas can cost around HK$100 per person, and the 53-year-old fully fermented black Pu'er tea will set you back HK$328. Ng says he buys blocks of Pu'er tea leaves every year (a block... An extensive range of high-end teas can also be found at the branch of Singapore-based luxury tea house TWG Tea, which opened in Central, a few years ago. Ng isn't Hong Kong's only tea sommelier either. Kate Chang Lok-ki, 27, an assistant head waitress at the Palm Court restaurant at The Langham Hong Kong, became a tea sommelier after receiving training last August, when she learned about various kinds of tea and techniques to brew them for the... She started working as a tea sommelier soon after, helping customers figure out what kind of tea best suits their tastes and pairs well with their food. For example, she might suggest something stronger like red tea as a palate cleanser with a sweeter dessert. Chang admits that she wasn't much of a connoisseur before receiving training, but has since developed a finer palate for tea, though she will still drink bottled tea from convenience stores if there's no other choice. Like Kelvin Ng, Chang says her training has changed her habits: if she is served tea that isn't at the optimal temperature in a Chinese restaurant, she'll ask for a hotter batch. Source: www.scmp.com

Bob Howard is an IT specialist and field agent for the Laundry, the branch of Her Majesty's secret service that deals with occult threats. Overworked and underpaid, Bob is used to his two jobs overflowing from a strict nine to five and, since his wife Mo has a very similar job description, he understands that work will sometimes follow her home, too. But when 'work' involves zombie assassins and minions of a mad god's cult, he realises things are spinning out of control. When a top-secret dossier goes missing and his boss Angleton is implicated, Bob must contend with suspiciously helpful Russian intelligence operatives and an unscrupulous apocalyptic cult before confronting the decades-old secret that lies at the heart of the Laundry: what is so important about the missing Fuller...
The Buddha Tree tells the story of Soshu, and effete and handsome Buddhist priest whose hypocrisy and addiction to sensual pleasures lead him to carry on an affair with his own mother-in-law, even as his offers pious counseling to his parishioners. Ridden with guilt, Soshu tries to reform after his wife leaves him but becomes enmeshed in his own web of deceit. Throughout he Buddha Tree Niwa reveals remarkable insight into human weaknesses, his sensitive sketches of the Japanese countryside, and his revelation of the materialism of the modern Buddhist church in Japan, make this a book of unusual distinction.
