Im back to Singapore from IPMT Biodynamic Agriculture course. I’ve been deeply touched by the earth, I’ve felt the rhythm of the universe, and I’ve heard the tune of my soul. I fell in love.
From being in the so call glamorous, superficial, cold and materialistic fashion industry, I made a tough decision to flee away and persue what i believe is my calling. I also made a overnight decision to be a vegetarian and stop smoking.
Life for me have been from extreme ends to extreme ends so far. I’ve never felt more warmth than what I felt in the one week IPMT course. And I just cant wait to visit a biodynamic herbalist farmer/bee keeper and a Gandhian farmer I got to know from this class in Kuala Lumpur next week. Probably cameron highlands the week after.
and why biodynamic? because we and the earth/universe are one, a fact you just cant deny.

100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well- with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long-term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle. While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well. What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.
people always say that it is okay to be overweight as long as they are healthy. oh who are we kidding?
a very very cool and innovative documentary of how this guy try to live sustainably by building a farm on his truck in a city where land is scarce.
