I was fortunate for an opportunity to visit a Soya Sauce brewery of my mom's friend on Sunday noon 6th-June-2010, alongside with my family (Mom, Dad & Sister). Manage to snap a few shots with the permission of the brewery owner, and had a quick lunch bite with the owner and his family.
Soya sauce was originated from China, dated as far back as 3,000 years ago. Soya sauce had brewed
its way into generations of chinese cooking and daily lifes, alongside with our historical chinese culture.
Soya sauce brewing process is rather interesting, it has close resemblence with our personal improvements wisdom. From the selection of fine soya beans to the cleaning process, steaming of soya bean and add in recipes; fermentation and then precipitate for a period of time, in order to brewed-out a fine soya sauce. Neither steps to be skip out; nor process to be speed up. Same implies to our own Personal Improvements, since our birth we begins to gain knowledge through our surroundings and understand our own characteristics, attitudes, wisdoms, emotions, patience and so on; All things surrounding our life and all kinds of achievements, set-backs, happiness, angers, sadness and Joyfulness has added in to us as our own secret recipes and experiences.
When our path comes to a Cross-Road, we can only calm down, understand the situation and to decide wisely; to cogitate and to understand our own path and direction towards an enlightened and meaningfull tomorrow.
