There is an ancient Chinese saying that goes like this:

If there is light in the soul,
There will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person,
There will be harmony in the house.
If there is harmony in the house,
There will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
There will be peace in the world.
—Chinese Proverb

    awww… i love the saying, Ellen!! very meaningful.. Ophelia’s absolutely perfect for this piece.. right there among pretty flowers.. was this taken from home? i love the colors.. and i think the light touch of purple haze at the corners really makes this piece even softer and lovelier~ =D

  • Thanks Fa!! Taken from my home’s balcony, this is my new potted plant which I bought at the weekend market for only 20baht, less than S$1 ^ _ ^
