Garbage Enzyme

Early this year we have been going around Alor Setar searching for new furniture that can withstand being soaked by most of our furniture...bed, tv cabinet, cupboards perished during the 2010 floods...but sad to say it seemed we have to invest quite a large sum of money to buy such furnitures and after wasting several hours at 3 stores we end up not buying anything. But alas it seemed our time is not a waste after all.. at BIG SHIP we were given a bottle of this `garbage enzyme` for free with a pamphlet on how to make our own garbage enzyme..the idea is for us to lessen our garbage that is by recycling the garbage into something useful.

This enzyme was created by Dr. Rosukon from Thailand, she took around 30 years to create this enzyme. It was said to contain a chain of protein, oxigen, carbon dioxide, vitamins, minerals and hormone. The process of this enzyme does not include harmful chemicals.

To make this enzyme you need these ingredients:

Dark Brown Sugar (Gula merah) 1 Kg
Fruit peels 3 Kg (i.e: potato peels, carrot peels or the lime that has been pressed etc)
Water 10 Litres

Mixed everything together and let them sit for 3 months in a closed container but you have to let the gas out and stirr them every day.

To use them just sift it and store them into clean bottles.

I find it quite useful as you add it into your cleaning agent for mopping the floor or cleaning your sink, it hinders ants and cocroaches.

5 Healthy Habits That Zap Your Energy.

It's amazing what can drain you if you're not careful. Here are five habits that may be sapping more energy than you think.

#1: You Hydrate During and After Your Workout
You're forgetting one crucial step: drinking water before you exercise. "If you don't, it's like heading out on a trip with three-quarters of a tank versus a full one. You simply won't go as far," says Fabio Comana, an exercise physiologist and spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise. Water is crucial to regulating body temperature and maintaining blood circulation. A loss of fluids equal to just 2 percent of your body weight can tire you out and significantly impair your performance, he adds. To stay energized, drink 16 ounces of water or a noncaffeinated beverage spaced out over one to two hours before you exercise and another 6 to 8 ounces within 15 minutes of working out.

#2: You Sleep in on the Weekends
Your alarm goes off at 6 a.m. all week, so snoozing until nine on Saturday and Sunday sounds like a dream come true. The trouble is, this plan often backfires. You get up feeling groggy, which can last for hours -- a phenomenon called sleep inertia, says Russell Rosenberg, PhD, director of the Northside Hospital Sleep Medicine Institute in Atlanta. It's likely that when you rise at your normal time during the week, your body has moved into a lighter phase of sleep and you can awaken more quickly. But Rosenberg believes that too many extra z's may send you back into a deeper stage of sleep, so you wake up feeling sluggish rather than alert.

So how do you catch up on much-needed rest? "Spread it out over the weekend," Rosenberg advises. "To avoid grogginess, snooze 30 to 60 minutes later each day, and take no more than a 45-minute nap." Not only will you feel sharp, you'll also be much more likely to drift off at your normal time at night.

#3: You Eat a Big Breakfast
Why does the most important meal of the day cause a midmorning lull? You may be eating too much -- or choosing the wrong foods. For instance, the average deli-size bagel is big enough to count as four servings of bread. Add a generous amount of cream cheese and you're looking at about 567 calories and 22 grams of fat. "When you eat a meal with a lot of calories and fat, some of the blood that normally provides energy to the brain and muscles is diverted to the stomach to help with digestion," says Sue Moores, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.
Instead, try two eggs and toast with fruit spread. A study shows that people who ate this felt satisfied (and thus energized) longer -- and consumed 420 fewer calories a day -- than those who had nonfat yogurt and a bagel with cream cheese.

#4: You Never Snack Between Meals
It may seem like a smart weight-control technique, but if you go more than four hours without food, your blood sugar may drop, which drains your energy and leaves you cranky and ravenous. Munching on a portion-controlled snack that's a combo of protein, carbs, and fat can help stabilize your blood sugar, mood, and energy levels. Smart choices include one ounce of string cheese with one-quarter cup of soy nuts, one-fourth cup of dried fruit and 20 almonds, or a mini whole wheat pita pocket stuffed with one-quarter cup of low-fat cottage cheese and carrots. If you're worried about consuming extra calories in your meals, include foods with a high water content, such as soup, salad, and veggies, so you'll feel full faster and eat less.

#5: To Extend Cardio Time, You Skip the Post-Workout Stretch
You're missing an important chance to help your muscles recover. "Stretching expedites recovery and improves circulation, making you feel more energetic and possibly reducing muscle soreness after your workout," says Comana. To get a bigger boost, do full-body stretching for at least five minutes after exercising.
