Mistletoe Holidays by SinistrosePhosphate
Mistletoe Holidays
It's that time of the year again. 
This is the time when we take a moment to celebrate those who matter in our lives - you can call it whatever you want, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Festivus, Solstice, holidays... whatever. This is the moment when you make a list of all the folks who made a dent in your lives and do something about it. This is the time that we savour the moments we shared with them and they shared with us. This is the time of the year that we take the time to show them how much we appreciate their presence in our lives.

Whether you are religious or not, working or not, hate it or not... 
... it doesn't hurt to take the time to reflect on the people around you and show them just how much you appreciate them in your lives.
... Because the reason why we live... is because of each other. 

Happy Holidays, everybody. And best wishes for the New Year. 
You are all so very important to me. 
Tea with Liam - Ceylon Team pt1 by SinistrosePhosphate
Tea with Liam - Ceylon Team pt1
Sri Lanka, or Ceylon as it was once called, is one of the oldest and most productive tea regions in the world. Similar to the Darjeeling, the famous "Lion Brand" is at once a seal of quality and assurance, but also an easily identifiable logo standing in for tradition and value. To earn the "Lion Brand", a tea plantation has to apply for and pass government-approved, stringent criteria on production and quality. Sri Lanka remain one of the most respected tea exporting countries in the world. And the seal speaks for it.

Holiday Cheers by SinistrosePhosphate
Holiday Cheers
Hello, hello, hello! 
It's that time of the year again. 

This year, yours truly decided to put his chips in on Holiday Card Project Stamp by Heidi  More information here:  Holiday Card Project 2014
The deviantART #HolidayCardProject is back for its 8th year!  With the goal of bringing a bit of holiday cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the Holiday Card Project connects artists from around the world, applying their tremendous artistic abilities to designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In 2013 alone, the Project received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 2,000 deviants from 60 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed by deviantART members to local Los Angeles hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for deviantART volunteers and hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who sends in a card will

(Well, actually, I was involved last year, but I never had the chance to share my card on dA. This year I seem to be on time... ^^; If you are interested, you can search through this article, my card is in one of the photos Holiday Card Project 2013 Wrap-Up
The Holiday Card Project returned in 2013, and it was a total hit! We received over 5,000 cards from 2,000 deviants in more than 60 different countries! A ton of deviants reached out to us, interested in helping to distribute cards to their local hospitals! With these volunteers' help, we distributed cards to 22 hospitals in the US and abroad!
The majority of the hospitals we worked with distributed the cards themselves, either through their own volunteers or by placing cards on the food trays of patients. We received letters of thanks from some hospitals, and a few even shared our cards on their Facebook pages! One thing all of the hospitals and patients had in common: they loved your cards! 
One of our biggest surprises this year came from Bank of America! A deviant who works there got word of our project and told some people around the cor
 Hopefully it brought a smile to someone's face. :)

Anyway, folks... this is the season to be giving. Because this is one of those times when we are reminded to take a look at the people around us who love and care for us. It's also the time when we look at all the luxury and excess we have and remember those who live without them. If you are reading this and you are able, please consider donating something to a local charity around you that help people out in this festive season. It can be just a can of soup, or a toy on clearance. It doesn't really matter. The most important thing here is that you are helping the rest of the world to make this holiday season just a little merrier.

Tea with Liam - Reading Tea-leaves pt2 by SinistrosePhosphate
Tea with Liam - Reading Tea-leaves pt2
Tea-leaf reading is essentially based on intuition. What looks like a big black dog to one reader may appear to be a wind-shaken house to another reader. It means there's no consistency and very little accountability between readers. Therefore, dictionaries of common patterns have been published to help beginners to start their own leaf-reading journey as well as adding some consistency between readers. Another way to reach consistency is through themed teaware that have the circular surface of the cup divided into sections for ease of reading. These teaware also help readers to reach more consistency between readings, too. 

Take that, Professor Trelawney!

the Longest Night: Seven o'Clock

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 2, 2014, 6:34 PM

The ticking clock heralds the passing of time. 

Endless, monotonous minutes creep through the hallways of the mind and the labyrinth of the soul where men are left to face himself and his irresistible compulsions. These unspoken forces drive our deepest desires and fuel our most profound fears. We are powerless in front of them, just as we are powerless in the face of the march of time. 

Do you hear it?
They call for you in the midnight hour, whispering in your mind’s ears the most secret of secrets. 

Do you see it?
They appear to you from the corner of your eye, beckoning you to follow them down the rabbit hole.

The clock chimes. It’s time to listen up and follow suit. Will you come seek us in the darkened rooms filled with echoes of the past? Will you dance with us under the garish mercury moon? Will take our hands and join us through the Longest Night?

Welcome to the “Longest Night” Challenges where we explore men’s deepest fears and desires until he comes face to face with his most irrational and terrible fate.

Champion emote Seven O’Clock: Megalomania EVIL Laughter! 

First coined in the year 1890, megalomania is the delusion fantasy of grandeur, power, knowledge and inflated self-esteem. Those who suffer from megalomania are known to be narcissistic and have an unfounded high self-esteem. It was once thought to be a form of defence mechanism that had gone awry and indeed, overboard. Today, it is a rare condition that has often been placed on hated enemies and foreign heads of state. It is suspected that many dictators suffer from megalomania. 

Notable example: : The Heads of the North Korean state, Kim Jung-Il and Kim Jung-un were said to have perpetrated multiple acts that smelled very suspicious for megalomania.(This include claiming that they have invented the Hamburger, written 15 operas, scored 5 hole-in-one in one game of golf, etc.)

I am not an articulate person. But I'll try.

Yours truly was born in 1981, Taipei, Taiwan.
Moved to Canada in 1993.
During the day, he's "Dextrose Phosphate": a recently-employed resident physician trying to look sharp while learning how to save lives. At night, he becomes "Sinistrose Phosphate": an amateurish busy-body who dreams of one day getting a hang at this "art" business.

... in my humble opinion, neither one's going great, really.

Despite all that... thanks a million for visiting my little proverbial hole in the wall (of the Internet). Stay a while, have some tea, leave a comment... maybe even start a conversation.

I'm not an articulate person, but I will most definitely try.

Current Residence: Newfoundland, Canada
Favourite genre of music: Various (with exception to Rap and Country)
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: Windows Media Player
Shell of choice: ... Nautilus?
Wallpaper of choice: Whatever the landlord puts on the walls.
Skin of choice: My own, definitely. I'm born with it.
Personal Quote: "One apple a day... keeps me and my ilk away."

Hey C.J. ! :)

I really feel terrible about not being as diligent a correspondent as I should be, but as of late I've been swamped with so much to do. 
While getting to talk to you is one of the best parts of my day, I regret that I don't always have time, like to day, to give you the full attention you're due. 
Take car, my friend, and hopefully I'll have time to respond to you properly soon!
