Workshop on Empowering Women towards Sustainable Living by NIEW

Phew, this week was a hectic one for me... Yesterday, I was the emcee for the programme on 'Workshop on Empowering Women towards Sustainable Living' which was officiated by the Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development, YB Senator Heng Seai Kie. Wow, she's really pretty in person...

This workshop was organised by the NAM Institute for the Empowerment of Women. It was really good and it gave me a whole new perspective on how bad our mother earth is being treated. As the year pass by, people seem to be ignorant to the fact that our mother earth is balding and becoming sicker...  Just look at the unstable weather and the number floods that has taken away many lives. We can start to protect our environment by using a eco-friendly things... there are many available out there... It is expensive... but perhaps if more people start buying it, I bet the price would go down as well... In the workshop, EcoKnights representative has even taught us how to do our own dishwash soap (which is safe for the environment) Recipe is as provided below:

Other than that, you can also make your own fertiliser. All you need is some worms and your food left overs. The DIY manure can fertilise all type of plants... So, you are reducing the amount of wastage at the landfill...  The picture on the right is showing the fertiliser made by the worms. All you got to do is take the black wet manure and mix it with your soil... Voila, your plant will grow really well...
