It's been a very, very busy month for me, but busy's good, keeps me on my toes :) I finally found some time to scan this month's IM magazine, which features my article Doorway to the past. Here it is folks!

If you cared about someone, how would you show it? Would you offer words of encouragement, or give them a token of your affection?

A week's worth of kitchen waste.
As I've mentioned, I live in an apartment, so I haven't an inch of soil to my name. I can't just dig up the community playground/garden for my own purposes. I wrote to the owner of Biosense, relating my concerns, and she gave me tips on burying the compost in an indoor container. I had heard about this solution online, and it seemed like the only logical choice for me.

Currently I live in a small apartment with very little space, so I never would have thought that I'd start composting now. The answer to my composting prayers came when I discovered a local company called BioSense, and their simple yet ingenious kitchen composting kit. I wasted no time in emailing them to find out how much the kit would cost. Puan Rokiah, the founder of Heritage Biotech (that makes the compost bins), replied almost immediately. It would be only RM70, inclusive of delivery!
