Fig aka Buah Tin in Malaysia’s 🇲🇟 national language, it was mentioned specifically in Al-Qur’an

This garden was founded by Mr Mohd. Hilmi bin Yusoff at his own house 🏡 at Seksyen 7, Shah Alam, Selangor 🇲🇟 As an architect himself & his wife, Mrs Faridah Hasni binti Ramli love landscaping to beautify their home, gardening being influenced & trained by his late father, especially orchids

It’s now a family managed business & through her chat with Mr Hilmi, she is impressed how this father actually supported his kids, 2⃣ daughters & a son in this fig business. He sees the potential in this fig business, although he shared that this business yet to make profits. He also explained that they are in the midst of getting halal certification, hopefully soon 🔜 & it would definitely help in penetrating his fig business to export to overseas

The Fig dessert operations started in 2020, yes ✅, during pandemic lockdown time to supply to hotels, restaurants, cafes etc. because the shelf life of fig fruits just within 3⃣ days & the challenge to transport fresh fig fruits to other destinations, so innovate with fig cheese tarts with jam & fresh fruits as topping.

He is so proud & happy that Mutiara Fig Garden is brave to take charge in this fig plantation in Selangor, Malaysia 🇲🇟 This is 1⃣ of the agro tourism destinations in Malaysia 🇲🇟 for an educational tour & know more about this fig plant. Mr Hilmi has informed that he has yet to apply for halal certification, though it’s Muslims family business owned & using MARDI techniques & skills.

It harvest 2⃣ times a year in Malaysia 🇲🇟 versus once in Turkey 🇹🇷 comparatively, with rotating techniques used, Mutiara Fig manages to have fig harvesting all year round 👍🏻😁

She also learnt the Peat Moss ie. Soil as medium for this plan & CIRT method as an additional compound for the root growth of this plant. The steps are,

  1. Remove outer layer of the plant
  2. Root hormones application
  3. Cut the Peat Moss & CIRT composition bag, spray water & apply again root hormones
  4. Then wrap the bag at the outer layer
  5. After 2⃣ weeks root growth on the bag
  6. Another 2⃣ weeks transplant the bag to poly bag to grow as a 🆕 plant & place in nursery & place with a dripper (Both fertilizer & water) auto system for daily watering

After transplant, approximately 2⃣ months to start the baby fruit 1⃣st, then harvest in approximately 5 months later. The fig fruits harvest here are vailable in green 💚, yellow 💛, red ♥ & black 🖀 according to the level of sweetness 😋🀀

User Experience ~ BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray

Hey all, this time SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to share about her recent user experience with BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray. Personally she loves it for a refreshing & soothing natural mouth spray

Yes ✅, JUST spray for relief & comfort with Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray 👍🏻

MEGA BiO-LiFE introduces Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray, a natural & herbal solution for refreshing breath & mouth soothing. It contains a blend of 7⃣ carefully-selected natural plant extracts and oils which are chamomile flower extract, honey, peppermint oil (Menthol), licorice root extract, eucalyptol, propolis powder & aloe vera powder to work in synergy & reducing ⬇ bad breath

BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray is suitable for all age groups & can be used for mouth soothing & reducing ⬇ bad breath. It’s also handy during Malaysia 🇲🇟’s current transition to endemic phase, festive 🎉🎊 occasions, hot ☀ & rainy ☔🌧 seasons, or when consuming too much “heaty” or oily food

Smokers 🚬 who have other concerns like bad breath or dry mouth, can also use Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray for relief & comfort

BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray tastes natural & convenient to carry with you anytime & anywhere. To use, spray 2⃣ to 3⃣ pumps directly into the mouth 👄, as often as required ✅👍🏻

If your mouth feels dry & sticky with saliva that seems thick & stringy, you probably have a dry mouth 👄 What can be worse is if you have difficulty chewing, speaking & swallowing, offensive breath & mouth ulcers, which are all signs of an irritated mouth 👄

A dry & irritated mouth is usually caused by viral infection or allergies. However, there are also other factors like ambient air pollution, weather changes & smoking 🚬 that can aggravate the condition. As viral infections are the major causes of dry & irritated mouth, most cases do not require any antibiotic treatment

People usually turn to herbal remedies made of natural ingredients such as honey 🍯, propolis, aloe vera 💚 & peppermint 🌿, which are commonly used for anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, cooling & soothing to relieve the symptoms of dry & irritated mouth, such as bad breath or mouth ulcers. Now, a mouth spray made from natural herbal ingredients works more effectively while providing on-the-go convenience with BiO-LiFE Eugica Herbal Mouth Spray

Let’s plan a trip to Pusing Sepang Dulu ya 😃😁

Environmental Awareness Trip at Pulau Ketam, Selangor, Malaysia

Hey 👋🏻 all, Happy 65th Malaysia National Day 💕🇲🇟💗

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 as a go green supporter this time gonna sharing with you all about her amazing eco & environmental awareness familiarisation (FAM) trip recently at Pulau Ketam 🊀🏝, Selangor, Malaysia 🇲🇟

This 2⃣D1⃣N FAM trip was well organised 👍🏻 by Holiday Link Sdn Bhd & being supported by Tourism Selangor, Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated, Malaysian Inbound Tourism Association (MITA) & Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam

.

The trip 1⃣st started with a meet up of all trip participants (Mostly tourism players, travel agents, travel companies & tour guide) & then departed from South Port Passenger Terminal, Port Klang for a speed boat 🛥 ride with Huat Huat Speedboat of approximately 30mins to Pulau Ketam 🊀🏝

Safe arrival to Pulau Ketam, met & greeted with the tour guide from Pulau Ketam, Mr Loo & then captured a group photo 📞 @ KETAM signboard. All trip participants then left their luggage at Sea Lion Hotel for Pulau Ketam guided walking tour of approximately 3⃣ hours

During this walking🚶🏻‍♀tour, all trip participants get to explore the island’s local community & facilities ie. Balai Bomba 🚒🧑‍🚒 Sukarela, Government clinic of 💯 years old 🏥, police station, Maybank 🏧🏊, power station ⛜, temple ⛩, 3⃣ primary schools & 1⃣ secondary school 🏫, the only 1⃣ dried prawn processing factory on the island 🏝 , several seafood wholesalers, street wall art & many more

.

After the walking tour, all enjoyed tasty fresh seafood lunch served in Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam 🍜😋👍🏻

After lunch, met with Tok Chua Kim Lin, the President of Majlis Pengurusan Komuniti Kampung (MPKK) Bagan Pulau Ketam, Negeri Selangor. Tok Chua Kim Lin has encouraged all trip participants to organise more tours/ trips to visit to Pulau Ketam. During the met-up session, Mr. Kenny Ng, Vice President (VP) Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tok Chua Kim Lin to organise more cleaning & rubbish collection campaigns as rubbish are observed during the walking tour in Pulau Ketam & this may affect the potential tourism growth of this island to the tourists. This session ended with a tea time treat by MPKK Bagan Pulau Ketam @ Restoran Heng Heng Kopitiam 🍜🥣🍀🥀😋👍🏻  as an appreciation to all trip participants

Checked in to Sea Lion Hotel 🏚🛏, then the trip participants also get to enjoy an approximately 2⃣ hours Pulau Ketam boat tour 🛥 to visit the fish farm, Sg. Lima, eagle 🊅 feeding, dolphin (Yes ✅, all so happy as seen some small dolphins 🐬🐬 from far), fish wall art & Mangrove Villa homestay inspection

Do check out her happy boat tour ride TikTok clip captured via 📹🌐

All trip participants ended the day with a satisfied fresh seafood platter dinner at Restoran Jia Jia 🍜😋👍🀌ôŽ°Š

The highlight of this trip that SiennyLovesDrawing really enjoyed personally is the visit & environmental awareness program at the Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Recycling Station (Tzu Chi) ♻ which established since 25 Oct 2011 in Pulau Ketam 🊀🏝

All trip participants get to participate in the local environmental awareness program with Tzu Chi volunteers. The program started with an introduction of Tzu Chi Association & their go green 💚♻ efforts by Tzu Chi Association in Pulau Ketam to raise the environmental awareness. From this session, all trip participants got to know that the rubbish condition in Pulau Ketam 🊀🏝 has been improved better since the go green awareness efforts by Tzu Chi to the local island residents here , of course it can be improved greater for a cleaner Pulau Ketam in near future for the local island residents as well as local & foreign visitors

.

Next, a warm up body session with a light aerobic exercise led by the Tzu Chi volunteers. Then, followed with a split of 2⃣ groups trip participants for an outdoor activity to the nearby recycle collection station to assemble & classification of reusable resources, then collected all the reusable resources into the reusable fish nets & returned to Pulau Ketam Tzu Chi Environmental Protection Station ♻

After the group photo 📞 session of all trip participants with the reusable resources collected, hand washing session & then the reusable resources processing explanation session by Tzu Chi volunteers. All trip participants get to understand the brief features of the processing & transferring reusable ♻✅ resources by the different grade of plastics

It’s really not easy to do recycling 💚♻, of course the 1⃣st buy in of the local residents to willingly put in the reusable resources into the collection station set up. However, there are a minority of local residents that misused the collection station as another dustbin on the island 🙄

After the collection of reusable resources, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has learnt that lots of tedious works involved especially the separation of different parts of a plastic reusable resources collected. Other reusable resources collected are glass 🍟, boxes/ cardboard 📊, papers 🗞, books 📚, CDs etc.

Guess what❓⁉

Glass bottles 🍟🍟 can be recycled by using a special machine to crushing them into small glass pieces, then can be mixed into soil for plantation 🌱🌿🌳 purposes

Amazing learning gained 👍🏻

Yeah‌ A yummy healthy vegetarian lunch 🍜😋👍🏻 prepared by Tzu Chi volunteers as an appreciation to all trip participants for their visit & go green activity participation by all trip participants

All enjoyed the lunch happily 😃😁

.

The program is then followed by Q&A, as well as an experience sharing session. During the sharing session, Tzu Chi volunteers have encouraged all the trip participants to include an environmental awareness session in their tours or trips organised moving forward, so that more people will be encouraged to start their own go green habits respectively 💚♻🌎

Ms Yap SC of Holiday Link Sdn Bhd, the trip organiser has shared her appreciation 🙏🏻💗 to all trip participants for their participation in this FAM trip & encouraged all trip participants to start organising similar environmental awareness tours/ trips moving forward

Ms Yik Thim of Tourism Selangor shared that her shopping habit now is too lazy to buy 🛍 It means if she knows she will throw the item subsequently, she will not buy it now ❌🛍 It’s a good way to reduce on 3⃣R efforts. She has added that she does home cooking 🧑🏻‍🍳, so now she uses her kitchen waste / food waste from her daily home cooking preparation as home plant fertilizer. Then, her home plant 🌿🌱 will then grow as her own home cooking ingredients. Amazing way of being environmentally friendly 💚🌎

.

Ms Jennifer of Tzu Chi has added that parcels 📊 from online shopping actually causing lots of headache in Tzu Chi’s recycle efforts especially the sticking tape on the parcel 📊 box that the Tzu Chi volunteers have to remove the tapes from each parcel box 📊 during the process of recycling the reusable resources

Mr, Kenny Ng, VP Inbound of MITA has suggested to Tzu Chi volunteers to collaborate more with the associations outside of Pulau Ketam 🊀🏝, also to start influencing the younger generations to educate them on 3⃣R efforts ie. Reduce, Reuse & Recycle ♻. Those can reuse or repair, don’t buy 🆕 one

At the end of this trip, many trip participants have agreed 💯👍🏻 to organise more eco & environmental awareness tours moving forward & start with own self 1⃣st & then influencing people around on go green ♻ habits ~ 3⃣Rs for a better planet 🌎 to live in

Yes ✅, let’s all continue to do our part for a better living environment, each of us play an important role in go green efforts ya 💪🏻🙌🏻👍🏻
