How I enjoy my matcha bowl

Japanese ceramics have always had a special place in my heart. The misconstrued imperfections such as a random patch of red in the glaze actually make the tea bowl more perfect in its display of beauty. Instead of trying to hide or manipulate features to look as symmetrical (and likely artificial in the process) as possible, the asymmetry form can be as flattering.

Consider women blessed without facial abnormalities who bear the heavier burden of looking even better and more often than not subscribe to cosmetic procedures and associated promises of the ideal size, shape, etc. Why not celebrate beauty at its natural best? After all, like this gorgeous green frothy matcha, no two bubbles are alike: some larger, others smaller.

Happy international women's day!
