I’m so busy, but I still have time for some random thinking



Before anything else,  I hope you can listen to a cute Philippine Christmas carol.  I love listening to this one, though I myself    cannot even pronounce the title of this song. Ha ha ha …… Well,  Just 2. 08 minutes, folks.




I have  been hideously busy,  guys, so sorry for not reading any blog for the past few weeks.  My work schedule is brutal, and though I am well compensated,  working extra hours  and going home everyday at 12 midnight  can be exhausting..  I work at  a dairy company, so you can just imagine the demands for our products during the holiday.  And you know,  we not only produce for our  own company  brand, we make for 54 other brands, such as for supermarkets and fast food restaurants. For example , we supply the creamer for McDonalds, even if you see their brand McDonalds on their creamers. It’s the same for other well known stores that have their own ” house brands” .  We don’t really expect these massive stores to have their own dairy company, right ?  We supply their dairy stuff with their brand, such as …. well, I don’t know if I have to divulge it. Having said that, rest assured we in the laboratory make them safe for you,  from raw materials to finished ones…. just pay attention to expiration dates, okay ?


So, what’s going on in the world ?  I just saw the news about this North Korean soldier who managed to escape from the Demilitarized zone (DMZ) to South Korea. He was shot 5 times by his North Korean fellow soldiers. Fortunately, he  survived. The irony in this is , though he survived from 5 bullet wounds, he might die from malnutrition.  The doctors who operated on his stomach were  shocked  to find massive number of  parasites in his stomach, one as long as 11 inches.


Sanctions  have been placed on North Korea, and that included  supply of fertilizers.  China could have supplied their fertilizer needs, but I assume N. Korea  decided on ” organic ” fertilizers  , such as feces and urine. Cheaper and ” better”, right ? As long as there are people, there will be an endless supply of  natural fertilizers.  Well, here’s an advice from yours truly, a microbiologist.  If you don’t know where that organic lettuce  comes from,  you better scrub each and every leaf  of that lettuce and wash it well.  (._.”) Remember Chipotle ? Don’t get me wrong.  I fully approve of sustainable organic farming, but it should be disease – free.


And while I’m at it, I advise you to have your kids properly vaccinated.


And please  have a water bottle refilled , instead of buying bottled water.


Cleaning up Trash Island: One Man's Waste is Another Woman's Bikini |...

Carefully unwrap the gifts you receive and reuse the wrapper, and keep the boxes and  those fancy , glittery  gift paper bags for next year.  Recycle, recycle, recycle.


California has a very good recycling system.  My brother’s engineering company has already built 3 water recycling plants here in California, and the company is presently building a green waste ( from plants , leaves, etc ) recycling plant in Southern California that will provide energy from green wastes.


However, I wish  California would lower the cost of  solar  energy  materials.  We had a solar water heater installed in our house, and it cost us $ 6,000 for that one .


Remaining water in our drinking glass is poured into a potted plant.  We have discarded our sprinkling system a long time ago.  We use  garden hose .to water the lawn.
