  1. The Tea Station. Once upon a tea station there were litres of petrol in fat tankers. Everyone that passed thought the tankers thought were full of tea! The spaces between the tankers were so thin that even a tea cup couldn’t fit. You would see cars pass you smashed so badly you would try not to look. It took so long to fill petrol that people would go in the quick shop to have tea. I mean why wouldn’t there be place to have tea at a tea station. The tea ladies were friendly to everyone that they came back.

He heard that if you owned a petrol station, you shall b wealthy. As a thanks for all he has done for many people, all the people he helped returned the favour to him by putting money together to build him a petrol station, designed especially for him. It was the shape of a teapot. This served a s a remembrance of his name, which was remembered until today.

    It was 1551 when my uncle died, that very moment my uncle last words were take of the fuel station for me. One cloudy day there was a fire and the fuel burned down to flames. It cost R15,000 to fix, it take 18 days to fix. It was finally finished, painted red and white shaped as a wonderful tea pot figure. I had to work and work for days to make it a 5 star fuel station. It took days but I finally did it. If my uncle was there he would have said well done!!!!

    One hot and sunny day there was a small garage that looked like a tea pot where everyone would pass by the garage. But one day a man stop't by because his car ran out of petrol and the man was in such a hurry he treated the owner so bad the owner put less petrol in his car and the costumer did not pay the owner . The
    Owner hoped that one day that he would meet the costumer again and that his first ever costumer will pay him.

  6. Once upon a time there was a lady who lived in a tea pot. She was very angry because she didn't live in a fancy house. She lived in a very old house. She was very angry because she didn't live in a fancy house. She lived in a very old house. Once she went out of the tea pot she saw children everywhere and look back to the tea pot it looked a mess and the others was nice and shiny. Shiny as a coin. She wanted to clean the pot, she wanted cleaners to help her clean the house but the cleaners wanted money. She asked her neighbours but they were super lazy.

    One day a boy was walking down the road and suddenly he stopped and looked at the teapot station in front of him. He screamed and everyone who was nearby came and looked at this fantastic teapot station. This station reminded him of his grandmother who used to enjoy drinking tea when at home. The three petrol tanks matched the number of cups that grandmother used to drink per day. There was a woman who was nearby and took the picture of this wonderful station so that she can show her family and keep it as part of historical documents.

  8. One big kettle by Kriya Naidu

    Once upon a time in the land of kettles there lived a girl. A beautiful girl, her name was Liana. She lived in a small kettle. One day she went for a walk and she bumped into Alexa her best friend. Did you hear about the big kettle house? Asked Alexa. "No" Well do you want to see it? Of course. Well let’s go. So they went through the woods and here we are the huge kettle house! Wow! It's beautiful "The house is all yours" said a voice behind them. The two friends lived together forever.

  9. The tea pot story

    Once upon a time there were five fat ladies that lived in a tea pot. The people who passed  by looked at the tea pot house and started laughing because it looked so funny. The ladies got mad with them because they were embarrassed. no one wanted to be their friends because they were so fat. The people thought they were mad to live in a tea pot house which is not suitable for a home in this generation anyway. The five fat ladies had nowhere else to live, they decided to live happily in their tea pot house.

  10. Long time ago there was an old man called Henry who loved tea. He loved it so much that he built a garage in the shape of a teapot. In the garage he sold all kinds of tea , from cinnamon tea to mint tea, from vanilla flavoured tea to apple flavoured tea. People who loved tea came from far and wide to buy some teas, even if his garage was in the middle of nowhere and no one really poured petrol. They just came specially for Henry's teapot garage, especially at night when the fairy lights are on, because it looked just like a light house.

  12. When I look at this picture I am reminded of an adventure of a long time ago.
    We as a family like to go on long road trips. One day, I said to my mother that I felt like going to China. Mother asked, “Are you sure? It is so far away.”
    I replied, “It will be a great adventure, I promise.”

    My parents agreed that we could all go to China for our holiday. When we arrived in China we hired a car and on our way to the hotel, we suddenly ran out of petrol. When I got out of the car, I shook my head and said, “Mom, what is that?” Mom replied, “It’s a petrol station Tshedza!”

    We asked a kind big man called Kitso if he could help us push our car to the garage. He said “Sure, no problem.” After the kind man helped us with pushing the car to the strange looking petrol station, my dad gave him a tip. The man said “Thank you very much”. Then I said, “Mom please can we buy some sweets inside the shop. Mom said “we are just pouring petrol and we will have lunch at the hotel.” Instead, we went inside the shop and bought ice tea. The odd shop was in a shape of a kettle. When we went inside the shop I was wondering if there was tea inside it, and discovered the ice tea in the fridge.

    That is probably why mom bought me the ice tea. We took a picture to show my grandparents this odd shop we visited in the middle of China.

  13. On my way to the filling station

    My friends and I were returning home from the movies, suddenly the car rolled to a standstill only to find the car had no fuel. We were scared wondering what to do. We found money for fuel so that we could get home. After arguing, I decided to go in the dark and scary night. Shaky and terrified I walked along the dusty road listening to the noisy crickets and frogs. I saw a gleaming light shaped liked a huge tea kettle. This was odd, to see a real gas station shaped as a kettle at last a filling station.

  14. The kettle story

    One day there was a cool man. His dream was to build a kettle garage. He built it for hours and days, maybe years. But he did it. He built the biggest kettle garage. People came even... the world came to see it work. Th ratings went through the roof! It had a shop in it, even had a car wash too. The roof was red, the door was white and when cars went through and that is how it went. It is real somewhere in the world and only the cool man knows how he built it.

    Goodbye. And also stay in school if you want to build and be smart.

  15. I remember the day that the grade 4’S went on a road trip like it was yesterday. Initially we were all excited but eventually we got tired and fell asleep.

    What a surprise to wake up to a giant kettle in front us! We wondered if we were going to make tea. “Are all these cars here for tea?” I wondered. “It’s a petrol station and we sell some goodies!” the petrol attendant said.

    We quickly got off the bus and went inside. There were rows of sweets and drinks. We each bought plenty for the road. Suddenly there was a lot of noise again. The teachers even complained that they couldn't hear themselves think.

    What a wonderful road trip that was!

  16. The magical garage

    It was in the ninety’s when my sister had died. The first thing I did when I got home was go to her room to remember her. Before I got out I slipped and when I woke up I saw a full town of fairies sparkling all over the place. But right in front of me was a tea pot fuel station. I went inside and saw waitress fairies fly like the wind then I heard a siren. The fairies were surprised after he said Otlotleng has died so I told them I will never forget them

  17. I wish I could make my own world

    Arghhhh, I got shouted by my parents because I did not do my homework! But that’s not fair I was busy thinking…, if I made the world how would it look? I’m fed up of doing things the boring way. Well, now I‘m going to sleep. The next day when I woke up everything was so different. We were going shopping on the way we stopped to fill petrol. I then saw “tea” coming out of the petrol pump, I quickly got a cup. As I was about to drink it, it fell and I woke up. I think it was all a dream…

  20. The Tea Pump

    In 1960, there was a city Ottawa that loved drinking tea. The markets of Ottawa always ran out of tea because people were Tea totaler. So, the Mayor of Ottawa thought of making a Tea Filling Station so the people can fill up tea as much as they want to. He called the best engineers to prepare a plan to make the tea filling station within four months. The people were amazed at the terrific structure. There were three pumps. One pump contained hot Black tea, second Indian tea and the third one Rooibos tea. The people were over whelmed as they could drink tea sitting in a tea pot and carry litres of tea home.

  21. My adventure to Tealand.

    Tomorrow we are going to Tealand to see the first building that was made there. So we got on the bus to Tealand with my whole family. We packeted sandwiches, water, juice and snacks. We went around a bit and then at lunch time we ate our food and snacks. We went on rides and tasted different types of teas, saw more buildings and much more. We went to see how they make tea leaves. There were more things to keep us busy so we went to the stalls and we bought some tea. Then the big reaveal was here and I was stunned.

    When I first looked at this image or picture what stirred up my emotions or what came to mind was the beautiful house that looks like a teapot and the three gas pumps that look like stoves heating the pot plus these two tyre pumps that look like balancing sticks used to protect the pot from falling.The teapot symbolises the outdoor activities,which reminds me of the camp I went to with my father last summer. We used the very same teapot like this one to make tea and coffee using wood and fire and it was a fantastic.

    The kettle Petrol Station

    Wow! What an awesome piece of art . I bow down for the artist that drew the above picture. I thought I was the best artist, little forgetting that there are better artists out there. The above image is shaped like a tea pot. That does not mean it is a tea or coffee shop. Although the image make me feel thirsty, I try to control my cravings as I do not want to end up drinking petrol. I cannot stand the smell. I feel highly motivated. My creative juice is flowing in my veins. watch the space for my next drawing.

    1. The natural disaster

      There was an old woman who had a passion for drinking tea... One day when she was just driving to town she came across a very odd looking teapot, she stopped and asked herself “Wouldn’t the world be a happier place if tea and coffee was available for everyone." She entered the teapot and saw tanks filled with petrol. She disposed all that petrol and put in different types of teas then she decided to also add in coffee and hot chocolate. After all that hard work she tipped the teapot then the whole community experienced the “tea” flood

  32. The amazing garage

    Once upon a time there was a petrol station that was shaped as a teapot. No one wanted to use the petrol station because of its odd shape. All of the other petrol stations laughed at it and covered his advertising signs so no one visited the little petrol station. The cashier had an idea to make a website and said: "Guys let's make a website and advertise on TV. No one can mess with our signs". Everyone said "ok" so it was done. The petrol station became very popular and lots of people visited it and everyone was happy.

    My dad’s greatest invention
    My dad loves building things so he decided to make a petrol station shaped like a tea pot because he knew that my mom loves tea. He wanted to show her how much he loves her so he said he would not tell her but show her he took out his tools from his red toolbox and began building. He kept on getting hurt but he didn’t care at all. He wanted to prove how much he loved her. He finally finished and he called her to see it. She was so surprised. She gave him a hug and kiss.

    KK Tea Pot Shop

    My dad, mum, sister and I saw an amazing tea pot shop during one of our Sunday drives.

    We all wanted to have a cup of tea each in the tea shop. Each once of use ordered a cup of tea. The tea was nice and promised to come back again. we went out of the shop and started taking pictures of the tea pot shop. My photo was the beat as shown above. The tea pot shop is next to a fuel station. Everyone passing by wants a cup of tea from this shop. My friends also want to go there.

  36. The little teapot.

    My parents needed fuel so they took me with them to the gas station. When we got there I saw a weird and awkward looking shop in the shape of a teapot. I walked in and saw thousands of sweets just waiting for me! Why have we never come here before? This shop is like my own little piece of heaven. Candy canes, chocolate bars, toffee apples and Smarties stacked up to the ceiling. I wish I could have stayed there forever but my dad was done and sadly I had to say goodbye to my sweet little teapot heaven.

  37. Teapot Tanker
    One day, there was a very weird man whose name was Tommy Tanker. Instead of filling petrol in his car, he filled lemonade at Teapot Tanker Garage. When he needed to drive fast, he would fill hot chocolate. For long distances, he would fill hot tea. It worked!!
    This garage is very unusual as it is in a shape of a teapot!! Sometimes Tommy Tanker would drink hot chocolate too!
    Now that you can use lemonade, hot chocolate or hot tea as fuel for your car, the price of petrol has come down very fast. Thanks to Teapot Tanker Garage!

  38. My strange father
    My father always did crazy things like, climb a treee and nail fifteen boards on it stating "Stop pollution".So today he desided to come up with some crazy idea,he wanted to own a petrol station with a coffee shop, shaped like a tea cup. Both me and my mother were astonished by the idea, we didn't even know where the money would come from. We made an agreement that if that coffee shop didn't make atleast a hunderd rand this week we are shutting it down. by the end of the week he came back with two hundred rand.

  41. I have been surfing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article
    like yours. It's beautiful worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all
    site owners and bloggers made excellent content as
    you did, the internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
