Quit Facebook for Good

Today, I have all the time to concentrate on my work, enjoy the warm environment, friendly coffee time chat, and a kind of ‘freedom’ of feeling good and back to life. Real life.

All these happened after I QUIT FACEBOOK for good.

No more addictions to ‘likes’, unwelcome news, racial and crude comments, hate messages, and also free from images of what one eats, where he goes, where she goes, my kids, his kids, your kids and all those stalking notifications in Facebook that took away your reality of life with a kind of zombie brains connected to the screen of your phone.

Real life begins with a smile, hug your love ones, say ‘hi’ to your neighbours and their children and don’t forget to have a cup of coffee without touching your facebook phone.

Life is so meaningful and short for many to those who plan to reach far into their achievements and Facebook is obviously not a place to start with. After 2 years of using Facebook, I discovered I lost more than gain.

I am not anti-Facebook but I love my life style and environment more than anything else until came Facebook that took away the time that belongs to me and became so-called ‘connected’  but lost.

My wife is busy enjoying organising her collections today, …..she quits Facebook too last night !

“I recently quit Facebook, trust me it feels great. No pressure of commenting on friend’s posts, their pictures etc. Phew! Finally I can go anywhere without letting the whole world know about my whereabouts. It’s so relieving. At the end I’ll say, finally I have a private life, that’s just mine. Try quitting Facebook, n see how the quality of your life increases by leaps and bounds!” Mukul Mudga, India.

Here is where I live with my family. Frogs, monitor lizards, birds, wild fowls, rodents, fishes and some mosquitoes are our friends. They killed each other to control their habitat and to survive. We are like intruders on this wonders of nature but we are not here to destroy. We are here to enjoy.

Almost 20% of the 2 acre land here is water. Fishes in ponds are so free and swim like in heaven. We threw food from kitchen left-overs and it was like a party for all of us.

The rain here is forever especially during the year end, it fell heavily to the joy of many. The frogs chorus loudly through the night along with cicadas piped their trumpets …..what a sound of music…. (oh ya, I am deaf).

From this year 2017, follow this blog site and journey with me to places where I worked as a decorative pond designer.

Pack your bags guys, it is going to be busy …… Ng Kok Hong, the FB quitter.

Next week…. another adventure in Bangkok.

 

SuanNamSai Studio in Bangkok.

Since 1998, I was travelling to and fro KL-Bangkok and still doing this today. Much have been done and learned.

I always enjoy Bangkok for its markets, food, a never ending shopping and of course, the art of the people. Of late, we completed a nice pond project with our NSM bio-filter system, cleaning up the pond the natural way without the application of toxic chemicals like chlorine.

SuanNamSai Studio or simply it’s ClearWaterGarden Studio is now opened in Bangkok. The team who has been associating with me since 1998 are still with me,…always happy, lucky and vibrant with life and forever mai pen rai….. with me. 

Year 2017 is the year I have been waiting for and trying to get out of 2016 soonest possible, and I did. With 2017, I am ready for new challenges and move on with works in SE Asia and possibly invoke the art from my life.

The Monkey Year

20160202_082800com

Studio Ayer, our new new eco-friendly studio at Taiping, Perak Malaysia.

There are two school of thoughts for this year business opportunities, one are those who think the economy will spin downwards and another says it is good year for business.

With the weather so unpredictable along with the war cries in the Middle East, mega scale corruption in the ruling government and of course, the stylish Trump who seems to be on his way to be the next US president…. so, what is in store for this Monkey year ?

Like the behaviour of a monkey, we have jumped from the dark grounds to be on a brighter side and that is leaving polluted K L for good for a peaceful Taiping farm land.

Our mini resort outlook studio and home to my family in Taiping is all clean, green and cool… ready for a new life style. It was designed as an habitat to my life, a special niche of collected arts and for the love for nature especially the water and fish that swims as part of the studio eco-system.

It does not matter anymore whether the economy is up or down, who kills who or Trump or tramps to run the US government, for as far as I am concerned, we are now in a little paradise made of green and clean just right for my age at 55 and away from the mad rush to bad health and imaginary wealth.

These days, we travel to share, give, work and earn like a monkey of the year as to be ambitious, adventurous and irritable.

Typha….. the weeds

IMG-20150611-WA0003

Typha latifolia and other species. are designated as the world’s worst weeds and these weeds can reduce rice production, impact wildlife populations and can alter nutrient cycles negatively. In New Zealand, Typha is classified as the most unwanted organism. So why plant Typha in your garden ponds ?

Our planting here is controlled in only designated location and not allowed the plants to spread so easily. If such measure is not considered in your planting plan, surely you are inviting natural invasion and potential damage to the garden system and structures.

But Typha can be lovely if you have ideas to dress them up.  http://www.studioayer.com

Auguste Rodin. The Sculptor.

Rodin 10 June 2015

Rodin. 111cm x 80 cm. Acrylic on used wood timber.

Love this old used wood pallet. Brushing with mixed wet-dry styles to create this piece with old vintage look. The depth with shades of grey was different when the painting was wet. The shades were good once dried up.

The ayer-culture ponds, it is all beneficial and eco-friendly
