The particles, drops of water and the universe.

In the grand scheme of thing, we human are just small particles in the entire universe, a few drops of water that creates the vast ocean… but when we look at whole construct, every single particle and every drop of water is crucial to form this universe.

You matter. I matter. We all matter. Never undermind our role, power, impact, strength and significance. So, make an impact and be significant…

My Youth Potion Secret : Stingless Bee🐝 Honey.

This SUPERFOOD is SUPERGOOD on my skin it has become part of my daily beauty regime. This golden liquid is known as Stingless Bee Honey, an exotic type of honey only available in the tropics.

I had very severe skin breakout October last year from testing an oil based skincare products given by a friend. I have sensitive skin and should have known I cannot have oil based products on my face. My face became dry, dull and lacklustre with severe acne. The extensive research I did on the benefits of stingless bee honey from Borneo as part of my marketing consultancy work has convinced me to start using it as mask on my face. Now, six months into the experiment has shown tremendous result.

Stingless honey is seven times more nutritious than normal honey. It has high content of phenolic acid and flavanoid compounds associated with antioxidant, anti-ageing, anti-wrinkle and wound healing activities. I can feel it gradually plumping up my skin. It reduces pigmentation, sun spots and also the lines on my forehead and around the eyes. I get back the glow on skin it feels much softer and smoother. Even my pores is much smaller now. Impressive!

I love the feeling of looking younger. Not that I am vain but hey… Who doesn’t want to look youthful? We all do! That is why beauty and cosmetics industry is one of the biggest profit making industries in the world targeting beauty conscious consumers and from the way it looks it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

The Beasts Of Murky Waters Of Borneo.

Docile and lethal at the same time, often at an unexpected moment, these beasts are known as silent apex predators for their display of calm demeanour when they are lurking in the waters. Thriving in the murky waters of Borneo, a home to the oldest rainforests in the world, they are often seen as a threat to human. Their swift and quiet ambush can take their victims by surprise and unprepared for escape.

The longest crocodile kept in captivity was a saltwater crocodile of Crocodylus Porosus species measured at 20 feet 3 inch and weighed at 1,075 kg. By default, crocodiles do not feed on human. They will only attack when they feel threatened or in extreme cases due to mistaken identity where they mistake humans for animals like monkeys, their usual prey.

However, the recent increase in human-crocodile contact in Sarawak (Malaysian Borneo) has brought the need for immediate measures to reduce and prevent human casualty.

It was actually quite a joy to watch these beasts getting playful and frolicking among themselves in the water.

Yes! Got my meal. Credit: Adam Larner.

The crocodiles were fed with chicken meat twice daily. They could jump as high as 3 metres from the water to fetch for their meal which was hung and zipped along the lines crossing the pond (It was part of the show during feeding times).

I am kind of developing a soft spot for the beasts. To me they are simply beautiful creatures which should be protected. It is a shame they are becoming endangered and almost extinct in many parts of the world due to uncontrolled commercial trade for their prized skin and meat.

I will write more about the subject in my upcoming documentary project. Follow my exciting journey getting up close and personal with the beasts.

She Is At One With Herself…

No one else makes her complete except for herself.

She needs no external validation.

She is her ownself with all the imperfection.

She opens up to the universe to heal her soul and be honest with herself because she knows for a soul to be pure and enlightened it must lives the truth.

She owns her life and plays the hand she is dealt with.

She lives in her present. She is at one with herself.

Silence…

When you connect to the silence within you, that is when you can make sense of the disturbance going on around you.

When you are evolving into a higher-self, the road may seem lonely but you are simply shedding the energies that no longer match the frequency of your destiny.

Baking in my red stilettos: Rose Chicken.

img_20190124_172934_918

Rose Chicken from Jamie’s Kitchen.

Scrumptious, juicy and tender the meat just falls off the bones. This special creation of mine makes a great substitute for turkey if you are not really a big fan of the giant bird for Christmas and Thanksgiving because some people think turkey can be a bit dry and tasteless. I quite agree with that. Not a huge fan of turkey myself but I do love smoked turkey though.

Anyway, back to the chicken.I tweaked the recipe by stuffing the chicken cavity with purple sweet potato. Rubbed the bird with butter and seasoning then sprinkled with generous helping of Sarawak Black Pepper. Slow cooked on the stove and then baked in the oven for 30 minutes. Voilla! It was a complete healthy meal.
