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.
