Upon visiting the Cafe Bella, I had the chance to speak with Ms. Elena Chua. ” This is like a dream come true for me. It made me happy every time I saw people smiling when they visit the place”, she said.

“It gives a glimpse into my world…My journey and my love of tea”, she added. I was inspired by the story she shared with me on how she ended up building the Tea House as an addition to the Garden.

According to Ms. Chua, when she was a small child, she loves to collect small souvenirs and knickknacks. She loves to play by herself or with friends and has their own tea party.  She loved collecting miniature bone chinaware. When she started to work as a flight attendant, she then acquired the passion of drinking different kinds of tea from different countries.

She felt so blessed with the opportunity to see and traveled all over the world. As she discovered how the world beautiful was, she decided to share these experiences with many people especially to those people who don’t have the opportunity to discover and explore the world.

When Sirao Garden-Little Amsterdam was built, their family considered it as a gift from God. Miss Elena decided to upgrade the Garden by having this tea house where it will showcase her beautiful and fascinating collections. Her collections are all precious to her because of her journey.

What’s with the name, Bella?

Bella is the name of her adorable daughter. Upon visiting the garden, the door will welcome you with a big sign 8504 which is the birthdate of Bella.
