Garama Wetland FTW!

I became an 'accidental tourist' today and I am glad I was game enough for it because I was rewarded visually with nature's splendor!

If you are my twitter friends, you would know that I have been preoccupied with hosting my French 'helper' these past few days. She found me via www.helpx.net , it is a portal that connects farm owners who are willing to offer accommodation, meal and their hospitality, with budget travelers who are willing to work for farm owners in exchange for what the farm owners are offering.

Chili growing via Hydroponic versus Fertigasi

Ok, this post is meant to be exploratory in nature. Exploratory for me :P. I hope a good kind reader will help enlighten me.

I subscribe to www.fatalii.net mailing list and I saw this cultivation system in their website, chili growing by Hydroponic! I am familiar with hydroponic but I did not know that you can grow chili this way too?!

Malaysia wants orang utans abroad to come home.

Is it just me or do you also got your funny bone tickled by the above news title from The Star? Oh COME ON! Talent corp? Government's effort to entice professional and skilled Malaysians abroad to come home? Connected the dots yet?

Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Tan Sri Bernard Dompok said Malaysia will help Non Governmental Organizations to bring overseas Orang Utans back to Sabah. Ehem! Isn't that Talent Corp's duty my dear Minister? (elbow rib + wink wink hehehe).

I say Tan Sri, you guys are really dead serious about bringing back all Malaysian talents back to serve our beloved nation ey?! Well done! Well done!

Father, you were right!

When I was in my younger years, if memory serves me well, in my late teen, I had the following conversation with a catholic priest. I was slightly drunk so I was out of my usual inhibition, anyway conversation went like this:

Me : I don't know how you do it. Being a priest is a huge sacrifice!

Priest : It's no big sacrifice, I love serving God.

Me : but how do you deal with hmmm...
