Eco Friendly Household Products - METHOD

A while ago, i joined a contest organised by Small Kuching - method to the rescue! Contest, and surprisingly I am one of the winner!! And I almost missed the boat to claim the prize as I was away for business trip and forgot all about checking my personal emails. :P

After a couple of emails to Small Kuching & METHOD, the prize was sent to me & mom!

The prize consist of
Laundry Detergent with Smartclean Tech -25 Load - Lavender Cedar
Laundry Detergent with Smartclean Tech -50 Load - Fresh Air
Bathroom Cleaner Spray (828ml)
Squirt & Mop All Purpose Floor Cleaner (739ml)
Designed for Good Hand Wash Gel (354ml)
Flushable Wipes (28 wipes)

And with Chinese New Year around the corner, I am busy doing house cleaning. SO i decided to put the  Squirt & Mop All Purpose Floor Cleaner (739ml) into test!

739ml, I am thinking I would be finishing this in just few usage? But wait!

Instead of pouring it into the pail, I'm suppose to squirt this on the floor and mop with long stroke! Sounds fantastic coz I can curi tulang and save a bit of energy mopping

Do I like this product?
Yeah, I think so, not only because it's environmental friendly and the floor is quite clean after mopping. Down side is that it's slightly pricey. But still I am sold. In fact I am tempted to try out the Squirt & Mop Wood Floor Cleaner (739ml) which is specially designed for wooden floor.

Hmmm let me draft s script to talk to my financial sponsor :))

Exotic food

Last week, while i was having dinner at mom's house she mention something like there was a news in the paper that people dried the sharks fin on top of the roof in Hong Kong. I was like... SO? That seems like a perfectly normal and sane way to dry sharks fin. What's the big deal?

Well, being a chinese I was taught to enjoy sharks fin soup and this superior delicacies were not something common back in my younger days. I only get to enjoy a small bowl during Chinese New Year at my grand parent's house. And I would say it's definitely something delicious! Little do I know that, where the fins were from and how to get it. As i grow, I get to know that sharks fin come from Sharks! (Obviously, DUH!) And that's why it's so expensive because this big fish is not very friendly. Neither do i aware on the cruelty of how the fins was "retreived" till last year!

The unethical fisherman just cut the Shark's fin from its body and throw it back to the sea! And without the fin, how does the sharks swim? Almost none of those fish survived and normally when it was throw back to the sea, it would slowly sunk into the sea and slowly die there. I can't imagine how painful it is!!! Why human are so cruel, but hey... am I part of the cruel human?? Just like how I feel so disgusted about hearing people eating live monkey's brain, but isn't eating the sharks fin equally the same?

I think I should move away from eating sharks fin and try to influence the people around me. Luckily my mom is starting to move away from eating/ cooking sharks fin as much as possible :) But for sure I know there would be a voice coming back to me when I try to say no to sharks fin "what's the big deal? your own family also eat shark fin what" I think to avoid getting big quarrel, I shall try to influence all others except the only one?

Anyway, sharks fin soup is delicious not because of the fin, but because of all other ingredients that was added in to the soup. The delicious shark fin soup will still taste the same even with the absence of the fin!

In case you are curious on the news, you can read more about it here.

Think twice of what you eat!
