Stay FREE … Stay Natural … Staying GREEN …

I love travelling, alone … The feeling of walking with my backpack and experiencing the travel freely …

all I really need is a set of clothes, sports shoes, passport, visa, credit card and cash … and I do NOT need internet the whole time :p

I just got back Malaysia from travelling to Adelaide, it was cold & windy but sunny … perfect for travelling … I am happy and lucky to have these experiences

Experience #1: I stayed in an exclusive private green eco retreat lodge (or cabins)… attracted because of the design of an award winning architect, Max Pritchard, … experiencing farmstay and homestay both at the same time … This was sunset view in front of my lodge and my life feels quite perfect just by being with nature alone , running and dancing freely & naturally …

  • Experience #2:  The main reason why I fly to Australia this week – to realise my dream – witness the heavenly Shen Yun Performing Arts … wonderful show & left me wondering how did the dancers manage to FLY up their legs the in sky so gracefully ?… They are like 仙女 , flying beauty !!!

Pre-show Dinner was a failed project … I was so pumped up to talk to strangers but no one wants to talk to me … hahahha …. laugh die me … however, the show was GREAT !

 

  • Experience #3: I love to take afternoon naps (even during travel) cause I am naturally a very lazy person who loves to sleep … I just pengsan whenever I feel tired and manage to take sweet naps lying on the green grass of botanic garden along Torrens River or any place where I find grass … I just pengsan there and let the sunshine or cold wind wake me up naturally :p
  • i forgot what beach was this … but i love the peace … so quiet …

  • Experience #4: I saw a big whale and a kangaroo (or maybe wallaby) … I was initially blocked from hiking at another 2 trails on Heysen Trails (maybe the trails were closed for bush fire prevention), so I blur blur went to look for another trail at King’s Beach and while hiking, I saw an actual whale swimming , flipping it’s tail and turning is body and there’s also 2 kangaroos jumping in front of me … *wow … how lucky and a blessing in disguised *

  • Experience #5: I brought only one book to read , Lao Tzu’s “Dao De Jing” and noticed there’s a core value Lao Tzu promoted called  … I looked up at a lot of english translation and it means “Taking No Action” or “No forcing things” … I must say that this translation is very wrong … Lao Tzu’s promoted 無為 , after reading the book, it actual meaning is “Things or Action that follows the rule of Nature or rule of Dao” … He said 無為而無不為 actually means “don’t do things against nature … if you do things or actions that follows the rule of nature or Dao, you are able to effortlessly achieve anything naturally” … Aiyo, luckily I was fully chinese educated, if not, I’ll be mis-lead by english translated book of ancient chinese wisdom … I have not completed the book because it’s so interesting to read certain chapters multiple times, over and over and over again …
  • The same quote by one person, Lao Tzu can be interpreted so differently, it’s up to the reader’s interpretation … I feel fortunate to be able to read Lao Tzu’s Dao De Jing and apply in things that I consciously or subconsciously do … I was naturally attracted to hobbies like Ikebana 花道 , Tea Art 茶道 and classical dance 舞道 … all are Dao 道 … this was a subconscious  attraction for me … since I am naturally interested to 寻道 … interesting discovery when I reviewed back …

Though I happen to accidentally founded the largest online seminar community for Malaysia entrepreneurs and business but I noticed that the growth is driven by the community, not by me … the community is sharing out my FREE webinars or Content because they get benefit from it … They unsubscribe from my mailing list because they don’t get benefit from it … This is natural … I saw that my online community is able to continue to grow (even without me because during my trip, I was 100% disconnected from online) and for that I must THANK YOU for your help in sharing FounderMethod out to your friends, staffs and colleagues  …

The growth of my platform is NOT an achievement, rather I must say that I am just a very lucky girl to have these wonderful experiences come flowing naturally to me … Plus, I do not own foundermethod.com , I just happen to have founded this platform and the community is growing naturally by itself , very much out of my control now … 难得糊涂 (blur luck)

love the green … vineyard @ mcLaren Vale

Experience #6: During the night, it was very dark in the nature and I looked up the skies … it’s clear and FULL of stars … I saw this 10 years ago at Cameron highlands and never had a chance to see this … On and off, I always look up the skies at night in KL, I can’t see the stars … So, in my heart, I really hope to see skies full of stars again … yes, in the wide nature of my farmstay, I finally got a chance to see skies filled with stars …

In the arms of mother nature, I feel so small and tiny, like a dust … 

I was lucky to enjoy all these GREEN and nice experiences because there are a lot of people out there in this world who are trying very hard to protect mother nature and maintaining green … And that is why we need to protect mother nature and I am supporting Malaysia entrepreneurs with Green Technology and Business Ideas … so that our future generations are able to enjoy what we are currently enjoying … nature, fresh air, stars, freedom and greens…
