When I first found out that the word 福 means a person (一口）having a one to one relationship with God and working hard in the field (田）it makes a lot of sense to me as blessings come from above when we are diligent to do what we are meant to do here on earth. Many many years later, I have wrote countless 福 for friends, to raise funds and to bless others from many different countries such as Bhutan, Cambodia, Myanmar, Mongolia, South Hebron, Zambia and hope to populate and bring 福 to even more people to encourage them that we do not walk alone. When Jesus came, He came to give us life and life abundantly. (http://chi.pinlay.com/CPL/travel.html)
It is with a grateful heart that I gave two pieces of calligraphy with 福 to my ex- SJI students, one of whom is going to Hong Kong to work.
Another opportunity to help a friend raise funds for cancer research and also to challenge my students to work harder at their calligraphy came when there was an opportunity to write 福 at a local mall at Katong i12.
They became the most diligent students practising hard…for the live demo on 15th Jan 2017 at the mall and I became quite an expert in cutting the gold speckled red papers for the auspicious word 福。
Here is the calligraphy I wrote for them just one day before my Klang trip and it is now used as a decoration for CNY.
Join us on the 15th Jan 2017 from 1pm to 6pm to redeem a hand written calligraphy 福 by my students when you spent at least $80 at the mall.
