Ants: Annoying Ants are invading my kitchen for over a week and finally under controlled. 惱人的螞蟻正在入侵我的廚房超過一個星期,最後終於受到控制

The weather has been extremely hot lately.  It is more annoying to find trails of ants on top of your kitchen counter, sink, along the wall and even crawled through the cap of my peanut butter jar!

Google searched on the following topics : What kills tiny ants? How do you get rid of ants in the kitchen? etc.

I did learn a lot about those ants. Ants are tiny creatures that live underground.  They are very sneaky.  Why?  Most likely, we don’t even know they are around until we see a trail of them running through our house orderly in a line carrying off our food back to their colony.  They have a good sense of smell that could rival a blood hood and can detect the smallest of food particles from a far distance.  They lay a trail and direct it back to the colony, which the rest of the ants will follow. Their mission is to take back to their colony whatever food they can find, non-stop. It means that Ants will stay in my home forever!

If they don’t step in my way, I really admire their team spirit and work attitude.  They are very smart and communicate with each other effectively. Ants just like other insects, ants carry bacteria that we don’t want hanging around in our home.

So, most inhouse Ants love and looking for foods filled with sugar – bread and processed foods have a good amount of sugar in them, meaning that just about anything in your house is their favorite!

Ants hate garlic, vinegar, strong herbs and BORAX.

I had used the following treatments:

(A) Around my house:

      1) Ant spray, 2) Diatomaceous earth,

(B) Inside my kitchen:

      1) Ant Bait, 2) Ant spray and 3) Peanut butter mix with Borax powder and pasted it on a piece of plastic wrap.

Finally, on the third day, ants are not coming inside my kitchen!  Yay!

Amazon also carries the following items which I used at retail prices as follows:

Warning: Please take extra care when using ant baits or ants killing products if you have children or pets around.  Those are toxic and I am just sharing my experience with you and I am not responsible or liable for any damage or loss of life. 

Wish you all the best and have a great day!

螞蟻:惱人的螞蟻正在入侵我的廚房超過一個星期,最後終於受到控制。

最近天氣異常炎熱。在廚房檯面上找到螞蟻的踪跡,在牆上,甚至爬入我的花生醬罐蓋更令人討厭!

我尋找谷歌的主題是:什麼能殺死小螞蟻?你怎麼擺脫廚房裡的螞蟻?等等

我確實學到了很多關於那些螞蟻的知識。螞蟻是生活在地下的微小生物。他們很偷偷摸摸。為什麼?最有可能的是,我們甚至都不知道他們到處都是,直到我們看到他們在我們的房子裡有條不紊地穿過我們的食物回到他們的地洞。它們具有良好的嗅覺,可以遠距離檢測最小的食物顆粒。他們鋪設了一條小道,然後將其它螞蟻引回到地洞,又帶領其它螞蟻跟隨它。他們的任務是不停地將他們能找到的任何食物帶回他們的地方。這意味著螞蟻將永遠留在我家!

如果他們不妨礙我,我真的很佩服他們的團隊精神和工作態度。他們非常聰明,有效地相互溝通。但是 , 螞蟻就像其他昆蟲一樣,螞蟻帶著我們不想要的細菌。真可怕!

因此,大多數屋內螞蟻喜歡並尋找糖的食物 – 例如麵包和加工食品中含有大量的糖。

這意味著我們家裡幾乎任何東西都是他們最喜歡的!

但是螞蟻討厭大蒜,醋,強烈的草藥和硼砂粉。

我曾經使用過以下療法:

A)我家周圍:

                1)螞蟻噴霧,2)矽藻土,

B)我的廚房裡面:

             1)螞蟻誘餌,2)螞蟻噴霧和3)花生醬與硼砂粉混合,並將其粘貼在一塊塑料包裝上。

第三天後,螞蟻暫時不再出現我的廚房!好極了!可以輕鬆一下了! 

警告:如果您有孩子或寵物,使用螞蟻誘餌或螞蟻殺死產品時請格外小心。這些都是有毒的,我只是與您分享我的經驗,我對任何損害或生命損失不承擔任何責任或義務。

Amazon also carries the following items which I used at retail prices as follows:

DIY: Fermented Pineapple as daily healthy drink 發酵菠蘿蛋白酶作為抗衰老的日常健康飲品!and meat tenderizer.

 DIY: Wow -Fermented Pineapple enzyme as healthy drink for Anti-aging and meat tenderizer!

Have you ever heard of “Bromelain”?   “Bromelain” is a proteolytic enzyme.  This enzyme is a good digest protein found in fresh pineapple, highly concentrated in the core and skin of the fruit.  It is often used to treat muscle injuries and a digestive aid.  One more important advantage of consuming Bromelain is Anti-aging!!!

Bromelain is a natural anticoagulant that works by breaking down the blood-clotting protein fibrin.  Studies have found that consumption of pineapple regularly helps to fight against arthritis and indigestion. (I should have known about this earlier!!)

Warning:

(A) For those people with acid reflux, this can cause or worsen the symptom.

(B) Eating unripe pineapple or drinking unripe pineapple juice is dangerous too.

Reason: Pineapple, this tropical fruit is highly acidic but at the same time is a fantastic source of vitamin C which is good for our immune system.

If you enjoy cooking, here is another good news just for you: by adding some pineapple juice to marinate meat for about ten minutes prior to your cooking, i.e. pork chop, you will be surprised how tender your dish will be turned out!  I tried it and it works. So, this is a natural meat tenderizer without unhealthy chemicals.

I haven’t eaten pineapple for a while because the after taste is not very pleasant to my tongue.  Now, for those readers with the same experience like me, here is the solution.  We can gargle with some salt water as it will neutralize the effect to the pineapple which are attached to the inner tissues of our mouth, teeth and tongue.

Studies also showing that we can obtain more “Bromelain” from fermented pineapple without eating pineapple nor eating pills from unknown sources.

Let’s do it ourselves!

(DIY) The attached pictures showing the bottled pineapple flesh bottled in brown sugar the second day.

Ingredients and materials:

  • Medium ripe pineapple flesh with core (washed the outside skin and air dry completely)
  • Brown sugar
  • Glass jar (clean and boiled in water to sterilize bacteria and air dry completely)
  • Clean and dry chopping board
  • Clean and dry sharp knife (I prefer ceramic knife)
  • Food gloves, clean and dry

Remarks:

*No water, not even a drop must be added in this recipe, or it will go stale.

**The quantity portion of pineapple flesh and brown sugar is ration 2: 1 (i.e. two pounds of pineapple flesh, one pound of brown sugar)

***Some recipe uses the skin of pineapple instead of pineapple flesh and add water.  That is for pineapple vinegar and not pineapple enzyme/Bromelain!!

Procedures: (The first day)

  1. -Wear dry food handling gloves,
  2. -Cut and discard the head, bottom and skin of pineapple,
  3. -Cut the pineapple flesh into small cubes. (do not wash),
  4. -Carefully layered into the bottom of the water-free glass jar,
  5. -Add one layer of brown sugar,
  6. -Continue the steps of layering,
  7. -Fill up to 2/3 of the jar only, (leave room for fermentation)
  8. -Cover the jar with dry and clean plastic wrap.
  9. -Cover with jar with the lid, but not tight.

2nd day and up to 3 (three) months: DAILY procedures:

  1. -Loosen the lid and plastic wrap and let the fermentation air out. (or the jar will be exposed).
  2. -Carefully use dry bamboo stick to stir the pineapple flesh and make sure they are covered by the juice.

Remarks:

  • This fermentation cycle will take about three months to be done.  After one month, you will see the pineapple flesh floating to the top of the juice.  Close to the end of fermentation, about three months, all the pineapple flesh will be sunk to the bottom.  We can then carefully separate the pineapple juice out and store inside a clean and water free glass jar for storage inside the refrigerator for daily consumption.
  • As healthy supplement drink, pour one table spoon inside a cup and diluted it with water.  You may add ice or honey!

                                          So, moderation is the key for success and good health!

                                                             Enjoy and wish you the best of luck!

Disclaimer: This is how I prepare and drink it as a healthy drink and for entertainment.  I am not responsible for any loss or damage to your health or assets as each individual’s health is different.  Please consult with your doctor prior to taking this drink.  Thank you!

發酵菠蘿蛋白酶作為抗衰老的日常健康飲品!

你有沒有聽說過“菠蘿蛋白酶”。我對此進行了研究,發現菠蘿蛋白酶是一種蛋白水解酶。這種酶是在新鮮菠蘿中發現的一種很好的消化蛋白質,高度集中在果實的核心和果皮上。它通常用於治療肌肉損傷和幫助消化。更重要的作用是抗衰老!

菠蘿蛋白酶是一種天然抗凝血劑,通過分解凝血蛋白纖維蛋白而起作用。研究發現,菠蘿經常有助於抵抗關節炎和消化不良。 (哇!我應該早點知道這件事!!)

警告:對於許多胃酸反流患者,這可能會導致或惡化胃酸反流。據研究,吃未成熟的菠蘿或飲用未成熟的菠蘿汁也是危險的。

菠蘿,這種熱帶水果具有高度的酸性,但同時也是維生素C的絕佳來源,對您的免疫系統有益。

如果你喜歡做飯,這裡還有一個好消息:在烹飪前加入菠蘿汁醃肉約十分鐘。比如豬排,你會很驚訝你的發現肉質很滑!我試過,真的很正呀。所以這是一種沒有不健康化學物質的天然嫩肉汁。

因為每一次我吃了菠蘿後我的舌頭有點怪怪的,所以我有好一段時間都沒有吃過菠蘿。現在,對於像我一樣有相同經歷的讀者來說,解決方案就是這樣。我們可以用一些鹽水漱口,因為它可以中和附著在我們口腔,牙齒和舌頭內部組織上的菠蘿餘下的蛋白酶。

研究還表明,我們可以從發酵的菠蘿獲得更多的“菠蘿蛋白酶”,而不用吃菠蘿,也不用吃未知來源的藥丸。

讓我們自己動手吧! (DIY)附圖顯示慬有二天的紅糖 加菠蘿肉。

配料和材料

  • 中等熟菠蘿果肉(洗淨外皮,讓空氣完全乾燥)
  • 紅糖
  • 玻璃瓶(清潔並在水中煮沸以滅菌並完全風乾)
  • 乾淨,乾燥的砧板
  • 清潔和乾燥鋒利的刀(我更喜歡陶瓷刀)
  • 食物手套,乾淨,乾燥

備註:

  • *一定不可以有水,否則它會壞掉。
  • **菠蘿肉和紅糖的份量是 二比一 (即二磅菠蘿肉,一磅紅糖)
  • ***一些食譜使用菠蘿皮而不是菠蘿肉,但我更喜歡菠蘿肉, 因為是做酶不是醋.

程序:(第一天)

  1. – 穿乾食物處理手套,切掉並丟棄菠蘿的頭部,底部和外皮,
  2. -將菠蘿肉切成小方塊。(不要洗),
  3. – 分層放入無水罐的底部,
  4. – 加入一層紅糖,
  5. – 繼續分層的步驟,
  6. – 只能裝滿瓶子的2/3,(留出發酵空間)
  7. 用乾燥,乾淨的保鮮膜蓋上罐子。
  8. 用蓋子蓋上罐子,但不要緊。

每日程序:(第二天至三個月)

  1. – 鬆開蓋子和保鮮膜,讓發酵空氣出來。(很重要,不然玻璃會爆開很危險)
  2. – 仔細搖動底部,確保菠蘿肉被果汁覆蓋。

注意:

  • +這個發酵週期需要大約三個月的時間才能完成。一個月後,你會看到菠蘿肉升到果汁的頂部。接近發酵結束時,大約三個月,所有的菠蘿肉都會沉到底部。我們可以小心地將菠蘿汁分離出來,儲存在乾淨無水的玻璃樽子裡,以便在冰箱內儲存,以供日常飲用。
  • ++作為健康的補充飲料,將一個湯匙倒入杯中並用水稀釋。你可以加冰或蜜糖!
  • +++免責聲明:這是我自己如何準備和飲用它作為健康的飲料和娛樂。由於每個人的健康體質狀況不同,我不對任何損失或損害健康負責。
  • +++服用此飲品前請諮詢您的醫生。謝謝!

“適度” 是成功和健康的關鍵!

祝各人健康快樂!

Eat avocado a day keep the optometrist away VS Eat an apple a day keep the doctor away! 吃鱷梨讓驗光師遠離我

Eat avocado a day keep the optometrist away VS  Eat an apple a day keep the doctor away! 每天吃鱷梨讓驗光師遠離我

Studies show that avocados are loaded with vitamins, nutrients and powerful antioxidants i.e. Lutein and Zeaxanthin that can reduce the risk of cataracts and macular degeneration which are commonly in the elderly.

I am surprised to find that avocado contains more potassium than bananas, loaded with fiber and also has contain monounsaturated fatty acids that is good for our heart by lowering our cholesterol and triglyceride levels!

Since avocado is such an awesome fruit and is not too expensive as compared with herbal supplements, I will definite add avocado in my daily diet besides apple. How about you?

Please enjoy and share the following video using avocado to make healthy pancakes for your snack, breakfast, lunch or even dinner!

Please also research if you are allergic to any ingredients listed above. This is how I eat and prepare my snack and is posted for entertainment.This is not medical advice or anything of the sort.

每天吃半個鱷梨讓驗光師遠離 我= 每天吃一個蘋果讓醫生遠離我!

研究發現,鱷梨含有維生素,營養素和強大的抗氧化劑,即葉黃素和玉米黃質,可以降低老年人常見的白內障和黃斑變性的風險。

我驚訝地發現,鱷梨含有比香蕉更多的鉀,含有纖維,還含有單不飽和脂肪酸,可以降低我們的膽固醇和甘油三酯水平,簡接對我們的心臟有益!

由於鱷梨是一種非常棒的水果,與草藥補充劑相比並不算太貴,所以除了蘋果之外,我還會在日常飲食中添加鱷梨。 你呢?

What is karma? Do you believe in Karma? Karma has any expiration date?業力究竟有沒有截止日期

What is karma? Do you believe in karma? Does Karma expire?

As Mother’s Day approaches, I sincerely wish all mothers an awesome and Happy Mother’s Day!  In addition to those mothers with adopted cats, dogs and pets!

My mother passed away almost ten years ago.  My memories of Her smiles, her teachings, her guidance and path to mature as an honest person will never go away. Even her life was ongoing struggle, as I reminisce of her steadfast personality, I am reminded what she once told me. “Don’t cry over the past, it’s gone! Don’t stress about the future, it hasn’t arrived.  Live in the present and make it beautiful!”

She liked to help others.  She told  her children not to let one’s anger to conquer oneself  and fall into any karma.

All these years, I have upheld my mother’s principles despite various trials and tribulations.

Personally, I do believe in karma and there is no deadline or expiration date, it will get to us.

Everything happens for a reason!  It may be good or bad.  What comes around, goes around!

Don’t forgot to smile today!

Life is beautiful and let go those bad memories and welcome the next moment 😊

什麼是業力?你相信業力嗎?業力究竟有沒有截止日期?

隨著母親節的臨近,我真誠地祝愿所有天下的媽媽都有一個愉快的母親節!不用說,對那些養有貓,狗和寵物的母親也是如此!

我母親已經過世將近十年了。我對她微笑的回憶,她無盡的教導,引導我,告訴我如何表現良好,做一個誠實的人,永遠不會消失。總體來說,當時,她的生活非常掙扎。幸好她的執著和強烈的個性終於成功地把我們拉大成長,  她是本著 她的正能量理念,正如我一直聽到的:“不要為過去哭泣,它已經消失了!不要對未來充滿壓力,它還沒有到來,活在當下,讓它變成現實美麗!”

她喜歡幫助別人。她一直在提醒她的孩子,不要讓我們的憤怒征服自己,陷入任何業力。

這些年來,儘管經歷了各種考驗和磨難,我堅持了母親的原則。

就我個人而言,我相信業力,沒有截止日期或到期日期,好的 壞 的它都會找到我們。

一切要發生的都是因果!業力!

今天不要忘了笑!好好活在當下吧! 今天的一切已是上天最好的安排!
