Bio dynamic farming (Qi farming)- 20 June 2009

My organic ‘kakis’ were invited by Mr Wong to visit his farm in Bukit Tinggi one Saturday for a ‘compost qi’ course. This course is to start at 9 am till 1pm. Being avid kitchen gardeners the session dragged on till 3pm when we adjourned for lunch. There was so much to discuss and exchange amongst us- the die hard organic people.

We learnt a lot from Mr Wong – making our own lactobacillus, composting, wormiculture etc….   To top it all, he taught us a few qi-gong exercises so that we can cultivate our qi and pass this qi to our plants and environment.

We felt invigorated in his farm,  feeling all the good positive vibes (qi) that has never been felt in any other farms that we have visited.  This farm is truly beyond organic farming.

We left with red wrigglers (earthworms)  to start our own wormiculture. We also brought back papayas and loads of information to convert our small kitchen gardening into a bio dynamic garden.

I am now practising my qi exercises.  Also started my wormiculture with 2 boxes of worms – one the red wriigglers and another box of worms from my own garden. I have already sprayed the whole garden with my qi lactobacillus made from Mr Wong’s recipe. Look forward to more fruits from my >30 fruit trees in the garden now that i am giving them the extra ingredient “qi”

Singing at Brickfields temple- 28June 2009

KKBC’s choir has been invited again by the Brickfields temple to perform during their 9am puja session.

20 minutes was allocated for them whereby they sang songs composed by Wai Leng and other famous Buddhist songs like “Brahma of my Heart”.

We all went early to the Temple so that the kids could practice first.

Having just learnt about qi and the fact that the Bodhi tree is full of qi, i went around the 2 Bodhi trees at the temple. the atmosphere was so cooling and calm.

One of the trees was fruiting and picking up the fruits from the floor, realised that the bodhi tree is actually from the fig family. Only the size of the fruits are so small like our local cherries.

Below is the photo of the small fig fruits as compared to the bigger figs from my place

Figs, called ‘moh fah khor’ in Cantonese literally  means “‘no flower fruit” as this tree does not bear flowers, like other fruit trees.
