100% Free Chemicals

Salam & hi,

I  can’t deny feeling envious reading other blogger writings,  whose ambition becomes reality, to live off the grid. Many FB readers clicked the like button over articles that condemn the supermarkets monopoly over the distribution of food for consumers. We choose green perfect leafy vegetables  with pesticides over an overly charged organic ones. 

People talk about having solar panels and rain water harvesting to prove self sufficiency. Tax payers grumble over the monthly bills and other expenses to pay in order to be seen as one of the modern community and sanely society. People in the city are living in the kind of life, which seems normal to the other city’s inhabitant, with the traffic jammed, car honking, lining up to pay at Starbucks or Mc Donalds for lunch, we see this everyday, so who is handicapped here? People do what they suppose to do to make ends meet, so where and what is wrong about having food and waste them once we were full? We work, buy food and throw the left overs, right?

For the country side people or people who live in an organic farm or the off grid community for instance, the opposite scenario would be, how pitiful our lives were seen, and the look they might have towards us, could be a  gestures  of sigh of sympathy. Healthy village rats are looking the city rats doing the race, just to survive. 

I have read many articles about living off grid and the blissful life in the village eating what they grow. I also just read about a man who left his business and handsome pay, to start living without money for already 15 happy months. He says, if he hadn’t watched Gandi’s movie, he would still be as normal man who lives depending on what he can buy from the stores and worrying about the money he couldn’t save to buy tomorrow’s food. He wants to experiment the life he hope everybody would turn to so he opted to start with himself. He believes that eventually the world would waste nothing but use all source for and to the mankind. 
I look around me and sigh. Where do I start? How to do this? Am I capable enough? Can I recycle my own urine and compost it? Would I poison my plants with my ‘unorganic’ pee? I must start with something to prove to myself that I am a responsible human being towards the earth. I need to take care of it, this is the only place I have, everybody owns no other place but this only one planet.  My brain started to spin and spin until I decided to do something unusual and crazy (according to my friends)

I went to the garbage area behind a supermarket near my house, and after seeking permission from the supervisor there to collect some fruit waste, I started ‘digging’. Luckily I got one big plastic containing a mixture of rotten fruits disposed by the supermarket. People who passed by look at me like I was a semi mental-disturbed lady scratching for food haha….i just didn’t care of anybody’s perception but thinking how can I start my project after reading the latest article I read, ‘Fruit Garbage Enzyme’.
 
I managed to make 2 big containers on the first week of my adventure and got to wait for another 3 months for the enzyme to be ready to use. Then this excitement came to me, where after a week or so, I went again to collect another big plastic with another kind of fruits from the garbage big bin. I was so happy that this time, I managed to get more than 2 big containers of them (garbage enzyme). 

I can’t picture in words how impatient I was, with the result of my homemade fruit garbage enzyme.  Driven by a huge curiousity, I went to Justlife shop in Ikano, Damansara in Kuala Lumpur, to get a fruit garbage enzyme sold for MYR6.00 for 500 ml. I couldn’t wait to see how miraculously it works and start to mix 1 bottle cap with a teaspoon of dish detergent to wash my dirty dishes. Hulala! The plates were all squeaky clean and believe me, that 1 bottle cap plus 1 teaspoon detergent was ample to wash all my dirty stuff that normally requires 3-5 table spoon of detergent! 

Since I use lemon to replace bathing shampoo for few months back, I think using 200 ml + 1 bottle cap of enzyme + unclorinated water in a 1000 ml bottle as my bathing shampoo, wouldn’t  be that ‘sinful’. It will definitely save me ‘huge’ money. My normal consumption is  1000ml bathing shampoo in a month and now with the new recipe, I hope a bottle of 1000ml of bathing shampoo can last for 5 months.  It is written in an article that the enzyme would neutralize the chemical in the bathing shampoo therefore it would be safe enough to use. I am sure by diluting it with water and same amount of 1 bottle cap measurement of enzyme, I am far too comfortable with the treats of toxicity. 

I hope in a year time, I would be living 100% chemical free in my fully organic fruit orchard and farm!

                                                                                                                                                                 
i should cut the fruit into small pieces for better result :p
i love the colors!

'saving the earth starts from you!' says the manufacturer

i dont really follow the ratio...it has no negative side effect :)
                                                                                     
note : the mixture ratio is brown sugar, fruit waste (from rotten fruits, fruit skin peel etc) and water (1:3:10) .....i dont really follow the ratio, depends on the waste, if the waste is sweet, you can reduce the sugar, or add more sugar, if you start to see fruit worms. There is no right or wrong in here ;)
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
So guys, please don't throw your edible waste start from now on. Make your own fruit garbage enzyme and start to save the our 'tired' earth!

You can save money too :)

GMO Potatoes?

Salam & hi to all,

i would avoid corn and soy like a plague! i dare not risk my future health eating those confirmed GMO crops!

i just discovered (from reading) that 'they' now have made/planning to design/modify potatoes as GMO crop, please check this out
http://www.gmo-compass.org/eng/grocery_shopping/crops/23.genetically_modified_potato.html

thus, i grabbed few of the potatoes bought from my local supermarket, and classified them as 1st class and 2nd class (yellow and brown color respectively) and start my new project, saving the potatoes :D


after 2 weeks, they produced some ' green hair' hehe... some people called it 'eyes'


this is after 3 weeks or so. i became so excited to see the development. i went to a plant nursery shop to buy some poly bags (18 inches x 18 inches size) to plant all these potatoes!

i cut the potatoes like the above picture to get more out of one potatoes (if one potato has 2 eyes, i cut it half to get 2 'seeds'. 1 seed in one poly bag. so i am going to have approximately 35 bags of potatoes which....each bag i might be harvesting at least 5 -7 more potatoes, God willing!

i hope my potatoes are not from the GMO crop. i totally agree with the permaculture experts that we need to save original seeds as many as we could before the Mos**to company modifies and ruins all the genetic component of our plants :(

my potatoes would be harvested another 100 days (from today), i am so thrill to see the result..

How To Get Happiness?

Salam & hi to all,

i was listening to this lecture tonight, and it answered the bulky questions that lingered in my mind. they were tangled, and needed departmentalization. they require prioritization and Brother Omar Suleyman has delivered the speech in such a way, it is simple to start with -  the heart.

key points mentioned - something to do, something to love and something to look forward. Actually, all the three points have been highlighted in the Quran (please listen to the video clip) so they aren't new to me. i thank the Brother for the reminder as it fed my tired mind and refreshen my spiritual level.

there shouldnt be anything that matters to bother our hearts, as our Creator says the world isnt enough for Him SWT to put the benefits/rewards prepared for the 'mukhlisin' for their deeds :) pleasing Allah SWT must be put as the top reason for doing anything in our lives.

for muslim coaches/anybody, this is another approach to drive us all in achieving our goals - happiness.

happy listening!

Who Is Responsible For Our Happiness?


Salam & hi to all,

I hope its still not too late for me to wish everyone Eid Mubarak, may all our good deeds and efforts in our ibadah (night prayers, terawih prayers, duas etc) during last blessed Ramadan, be accepted by Allah SWT, insyaALlah.

during the first day of Eid, that was on the 8th August, 2013 i have told myself to STOP relying on anyone else for my happiness or to achieve it. this is an affair between myself and my Creator. period.

i totally agree with the speaker of above video clip that now, i need to help others who are still, gasping for happiness, without realizing that the hunted happiness stand before their eyes, some maybe so near within themselves.

i looked at my business coaching certs, other certs and all of my tangible and intangible resources which are in my possession (lent by Allah SWT in this world), i think its time to seriously fully utilize them to facilitate who ever in need of coaching, in order to help others how to dig the hidden pearl in their 'possession', insyaALlah :)

i feel alive, and i thank my Creator for this awakening.

Alhamdulillah.

Brain Fog and Virgin Coconut Oil



Salam & hi to all,

Please check this out, i am quite surprised to find out that virgin coconut oil (unrefined) can actually do more than wonders!

As an asian who lives in the a country where coconut is easily grown and bought, this is a good piece of information for me and for you too :)

Unfortunately, virgin coconut oil here is rather expensive! you can find them in pharmacies at MYR 75.00 per litre! the cheapest is MYR 60.00 per litre :(

my advise, make it yourself, its easy (since whole coconut is cheap here). pls check my previous post on how to produce unrefined, uncooked virgin coconut oil at home.

Happy viewing :)

How To Make Virgin Coconut Oil At Home

Salam & hi to all,

I would like to wish all muslims around the world "Ramadan Mubarak"!! :)

Do you know that Virgin Coconut Oil has been nominated as the best oil in the world?
How to make it? its easy!

3 kg of coconut cream (you can make it yourself, just type how to get coconut milk in Youtube)
pour them all in a container
close the container with its lid
leave it for 2-3 hours, the pure cream floats
IMPORTANT!
 after you see the cream floated, put the container in the fridge to solidify the pure cream.
 once it is hardened (solidified) take it out from the fridge.
Note: coconut cream solidifies at 22-24 (an below) deg.C
next step is to throw the water.
poke with a fork or anything, make few holes
like this
pour out the water ( leaving the solid pure cream coconut in the container)
this is how it will look like
close the container and leave it for 24-36 hours
you will see the virgin coconut oil emerges, the protein and water
scoop out the oil
u need a filter funnel
put in some cotton
like this
2 pieces of kitchen tissues or cheese cloth if you have
arrange it like shown in the picture
filter the oil
VOILA! pure, crystal clear virgin coconut oil
tips :
 if you love recycling, you can use any plastic bottle, cut it like in the picture to make it as a funnel.
the remainder of the bottle can be used like what i did (be harmony with the earth :)

 I hope you can make your own virgin coconut oil at home, good luck !

How To Make Pizza!


In The Name of Allah, The Giver of All..The Sustainer..

i made pizza tonight and i would like to share with you how i did it :)

there are 2 main items, the dough and the paste. the toppings is optional. 

the paste and toppings
anti clock wise , tomato, beef salami, cheese block, mushroom, a table spoon of oregano/mixed herbs, salt, black pepper powder, garlic powder (grind dried garlic), brown sugar, a small bowl of tomato puree, onion. the pineapple is also optional..

preparing the dough

put in 3/4 glass of water or a glass of water (about 250 ml) in a bowl and add one big table spoon of brown sugar
add 2 teaspoon of instant yeast or a packet of it (15-20 gm)
the yeast impact (i think the micro organism were multiplying)
add 3 cups of bread flour or multi purpose flour
add a teaspoon of salt
add approximately 1/3 cup of olive oil
mix them using a machine or you can use ur hand.
leave it for 30-40 minutes.
 meanwhile.....(while waiting for the dough to rise, prepare the paste)
separate the stem and the cap. the stem is to added in the paste and the cap is for the topping

cut into slices
dice all except the salami.  you can cut into any shape you like
pour some oil in a pot. use medium fire
put the diced onion first. fry until it becomes soft
put in the tomato, mushroom stem, mixed herbs, salt, brown sugar, pepper, garlic powder and stir for 5 mins
add half glass of water and let it shimmer for 10 mins
add the tomato puree
close the pot with its cover and leave it in small fire for 10 mins
turn off the stove and leave it to cool off..

after 30 minutes ........................
look at that! the size become almost double
i have to add somemore flour as my dough was very sticky. this is the beauty of bread making, you can always adjust the ingredients.
as i am making an individual pizza, i made some small portion and start to knead.
5 balls. leave it for 10-15 minutes. meanwhile you can start to heaten up the oven
look at that! after 10 mins
oil the pan
shape them to whatever size and shape you like, it doesnt need to be round :)
dont forget the grate the cheese..what pizza means without it
apply the paste and put the toppings ingredient.  sprinkle some grated cheese on top..

bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes with medium fire
hmmmm....
its easy, delicious and nutritious!

good luck!
