Tea leaves readings


Tea leaves readings

As a first generation immigrant, his father owned a Tea shop. 
When he was a young boy he would help his father, when he would leave the shop in his care from time to time.  
It was a city that was at the cusp of becoming a buzzing metropolis. The myriad of people whom he observed  over the years at the tea shop left  a rich understanding of human behaviour imprinted in him.


Years later, it was his accurate sense of instinct and his ability to judge people, situations and reactions that marked him out from other people around him.

His point was simple. If you are tuned into your instincts and observe and register  everything around you, however trivial and disconnected they may seen at that time,  you  will learn to decipher the patterns and see beyond the obvious .
