HOME, The Movie – A full documentary shown in HD with beautiful, stunning, extraordinary and unforgettable visuals/scenery, with Glenn Close narrating

Watch “Home, The Movie”

Hi there, dear friends πŸ˜€

I usually like to unwind after a long, tiring day by watching some travel documentaries on TV, especially over the Discovery HD Channel.Β  I particularly like to be “brought” to those scenic places by just lounging on my comfortable sofa in the living room, having my favourite cup of tea or coffee…and probably a slice of cake, too… πŸ˜†

Yesterday, I found a gem of a movie, called “Home” in Youtube, and wow, was I really impressed with the extraordinary visual imagery, the vivid colours, the beautiful cinematography and the powerful message the documentary brings about the beauty of our planet, Earth, which we call our HOME.

What I did was to plug a HDMI cable from my laptop direct to my 46-inch HD TV and enjoyed tremendously the crisp, vibrant details of the movie. Throughout the whole 1-1/2 hours of the movie, I had gone “wow”, “oooh” and “aaah” so many times over the visual treats. 😯 Even my family was impressed and my daughter had downloaded the movie in HD for more future viewings. πŸ’‘

Today being the official Earth Day, it is only fitting that I post here about Home, The Movie. It is available online for FREE viewing (Watch “Home, The Movie).Β 

When you reach the Youtube page to watch the movie, be sure to put the settings to “English captions” and on 720p HD quality to enjoy fully the visual feast. Glenn Close’s narration is certainly very captivating.Β  If you like Home, be sure to pass the link around and share the views of our beautiful “home” that we stand to loseΒ  due to humanity’s modernisation and industrialisation effect on Earth, our home. However, do rest assured that some countries have started taking steps to preserve the ecology and nature and that’s a positive! πŸ˜‰

Here is an excerpt obtained from Home’s website :-

Internationally renowned photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand makes his feature directorial debut with this environmentally conscious documentary produced by Luc Besson, and narrated by Glenn Close. Shot in 54 countries and 120 locations over 217 days, Home presents the many wonders of planet Earth from an entirely aerial perspective.

As such, we are afforded the unique opportunity to witness our changing environment from an entirely new vantage point. In our 200,000 years on Earth, humanity has hopelessly upset Mother Nature’s delicate balance. Some experts claim that we have less than ten years to change our patterns of consumption and reverse the trend before the damage is irreversible.

Produced to inspire action and encourage thoughtful debate, Home poses the prospect that unless we act quickly, we risk losing the only home we may ever have.

Enjoy! πŸ˜€

Healthy Yummy Cucumber Salad For Sore Throats, Body Heatiness…

A yummy, healthy salad dish that helps relieves sore throats and body heatiness


Good evening, dear friends πŸ˜€

I remember when I was a kid, it was very common for everyone I know to just eat a chunk of unpeeled cucumber with a little salt every time we have a sore throat. Sometimes, we even eat that as a snack in between meals. Cucumbers were very cheap and was used as a simple remedy to counter body heatiness. I hardly developed any sore throat when I was a kid, even though my family seldom had cooling herbal drinks. πŸ˜‰

Two days ago, I did a little “testing” on my 2 daughters who were down with sore throats :omg2: – I told them that :thinking when I was young, it was a very common practice to eat raw cucumbers with a little salt often to prevent heatiness and sore throat. So, I came up with a cucumber salad that I prepared for them for dinner. They liked the salad very much and each had a large portion of it.

By the next morning, one daughter’s sore throat was completely gone and the other daughter’s throat was less painful – confirmation that my cucumber salad”experiment” worked.Β  :vh:

Here is the easy and delicious recipe, it’s sweet and tangy and most importantly, healthy, tooΒ  ===>

Yummy Salad to counter sore throats and for good health

Ingredients :-

3 large or 4 medium cucumbers (skin on, deseeded)
6 large tomatoes
1 large red or yellow onion
1 bell pepper

1 canned whole kernel corn (optional), water drained
1 small bunch coriander leaves – chopped
1 small bunch spring onion – chopped

3 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (more is better as this is healthy oil)
salt and black pepper to taste
juice of 2 lemons (can use lime, too)
zest of a lemon

Optional – a handful of Daun Pegaga/Centella Asiatica, which is also known as a “One Herb Pharmacy”

Method –

Just cut or dice and then mix everything above together and let stand for 1 hour in the fridge. Then eat like a salad. It is very appetising and it’s good for health. The honey soothes the throat, while the fresh vegetables have lots of vitamins and the lemon juice/zest has Vitamin C. The olive oil is good for health, too.

All ingredients above can be adjusted to your preference, but do make sure that the cucumbers are the “main star.” πŸ’‘

I made a big bowl of the salad and we had it the following day also. :vh:

Sometimes, I make this as a salad accompaniment for any Western food that I cook as it’s so easy to prepare and delicious to eat. Hope you like thisΒ  salad, too!

With best wishes,

Karmic Debts Ceremony – A FREE Prayer on Vesak Day 05 May, 2012 by Master atan

Hi there, dear friends πŸ˜€

This year, Master atan has a new spiritual prayer service that he is offering for FREE and anyone of any religion who believes in karma is most welcome to join.Β  I have copied here the information from his FORUM :-

Master atan Refine Spiritual Technique – Karmic Debts Ceremony – 2012

I feel this is a good time to perform a Karmic Debts Ceremony, for many of you who follow me will stand a good chance to benefit greatly from this unique refine spiritual technique. It requires you to use your own good karma to resolve, reduce or remove your bad karma. When this happens, then good things can flow to you properly and correctly. :vh:

What is karma :?:

Karma is natural law, not a moral law. Any thought or deed causes an effect and can be called karma. Thus, wherever there is a cause, there an effect must be produced. The law of karma is the law of causation.

1. In Western countries ~~~ Karma is like, “What you Sow is what you Reap.”

2. In India ~~~ Karma is a law which maintains that for every act done, no matter how insignificant, it will eventually return to the doer with equal impact. Good will be returned with Good; Evil with Evil.

3. In China ~~~ there is a saying – “Plant beans, get beans — Plant melons, get melons.”

The question is – how to get good karma for this purpose :?:

Here are some ways where your good karma can come from :-

1. Use Dhealing Feng Shui techniques – you gain good karma.

2. Use Dhealing Spiritual techniques – you gain good karma.

3. Many who donated to the above two ceremonies or to the Dhealing management will gain much good karma, and

4. Gain more good karma by donating to the Karmic Debts Ceremony.

5. The donations collected for this ceremony will go directly to Rose ( Dhealing moderator – Rozalia of Romania ). Despite her having a stroke a couple of years ago and still recovering from it, she had selflessly given (and still is giving) many people here and those that came to her in her life much hope and happiness. Many of her Prayer listings for members and friends were answered – some were even like miracles. As such, with this special technique I am using, those who donate to the Karmic Debts Ceremony will generate even more good karma from that kind act.

6. some acts of kindness, charity, generosity, merits that you have done in the past

** Notes **

1. Please be informed that this technique will only work for those who believe in karma.

2. One can only use his or her own good karma for himself or herself and not for others. As such, we will require individual usernames or nicknames for the prayer listing.

This Karmic Debts Ceremony is a FREE spiritual service – anyone who believes in karma can join. :vh:

I will perform this refine Ceremony on Vesak Day,Β  5th May 2012.

Master atan’s Karmic Debts Ceremony Name List 2012.

To join, you can put your names/nicknames/usernames here and I will list them for you at Master atan’s FORUM.

All DONATIONS received for this ceremony will go towards forum Moderator, Rozalis (more commonly known as Rose) as she is a stroke victim and she is living by herself in Romania.Β  πŸ˜€

With best wishes,
