Maybe you have noticed an article about a semen in a mayo from McDonald’s from 26th May.

Few hours after, the ugly clown made his move at hoax-slayer and called it a hoax.

But let me talk to the crowds..

Here are few methods we use in the e-shop.

1. GET RID OF THE AIR TRANSPORTATION..

..if you have to pack something in the box.
Don’t use more protecting stuff, than is necessary. If you are creating huge parcels, it means more cars on the road and that means more pollutions in the air.

What Freaks Me Out – WWIII

The Fear

Let’s be realists and admit WWIII has already started. Somehwere in the background, away from our beautiful eyes. There are many questions bothering me. Like: “How far will it go? Will it stay at position of verbal battle through the media or someone will pull the trigger first?”

Should I either plan my future? Should I have kids? What if there will appear another Uncle Adolf scarecrow again? Yelling to the megaphone being LGTB plus thousands of other things are wrong and we have to die. Then taking me away from my future kids and dog, present wife, guinea pigs, cats and make my heart to explode.

The middle EU rat hole

As I live in the ‘heart of Europe’, more I feel like living in the hemorrhoid of Europe. Not even close to this side, not even close to that side. And when the time will come, we will be little chicken sh*ts on the sole, as we have always been (not literally quoting how UK described us in WWII).

In the safety of Underground (?)

So I have been thinking. If there would be tanks comming through our streets again, soldiers marching over the squares.. Where could we hide?
Space – not enough money for a spaceship. New Zealand or another island – impossibru. Every island country or island which belongs to any country would be involved in war at this side or that side. Antarctica – nope. That will be definitely a testing area and the icebreakers followed by military ships would accidentally kill us. There is no much options left. I think the best option is an underground, sleeping volcano or a safe cave. There we go. After thousands years we will run back to the caves. Because of ourselves.

The Picture is related to the movie Grave of the Fireflies.

Tell me in the comments, where would you hid! (Because I am curious).

Recipe: Soy ‘chinese’ cubes with vegetable

soy_china.jpgFirst of all I use to cook this food, because it’s delicious. And the second reason is because it’s easy to cook a huge pan. Like here are about 6 portions.

Ingredients (6 portions):
1 pack of soy cubes (300 g)
1 or 2 medium pepper (I use orange or red), but yellow or green can work as well
2 medium zucchini
1/2 of bigger leek
2 medium onions
4 spoons of soy sauce
2 cloves or garlic or 2 tea spoons of dried garlic
2 vegetable stock cubes (I use Würzl)
Spices: 1 tsp of dried passion fruit powder, 1 tsp of dried giner (or fresh ofc), 1/2 tsp of ground cayenne pepper, bit of dried parsley.
Optional: You can add what you like. Sometimes i add tiny slices of carrot or mushrooms. I am sure slices of turnip would be great too. Bamboo shoots. Whatever you like 😉

Process:
Boil a water in a pot. Add the 2 vegetable cubes and stir them until they’re dissolved. Then add the soy cubes and boil them in the water for 10 mins. Meanwhile chop all the vegetable. Start with onion and fry it a bit. Then add the rest of the vegetable. Keep the pan really hot. The soy cubes you need to take from the pot and squeeze them to get the water out a bit. BUT DON’T POUR THE FLAVORED WATER TO THE SINK OR TOILET! Keep the flavored water for later! After 10 mins the vegetable is in the pan, add the soy meat cubes there and fry it at really high temperature. The soy cubes will have better structure. Then add all the spices. Don’t use the salt. Fry it and stir it and watch it for 5 mins 🙂 Then add about 1 bigger cup of the flavored water (it’s really good vegetable taste) and stir it on the pan. There is already some vegetable juice from the zucchini and peppers and all, but this will make the taste awesome. Then leave it on the stove at some normal temperature for another 5 mins. Because bit of the water will evaporate, now we have to add the soy sauce. Really don’t spare 🙂 And then again let it on the pan for 5 mins and it will be accurate, because all the spices, vegetable juice and soy sauce will create an awesome sauce! And no silly potato starch!

I use to serve it with rice noodles, round rice, couscous or just a slice of bread are good also.

Tip: Use the rest of vegetable water for cooking the noodles or rice. It will have a great vegetable flavor 😉

6 Tips How You Can Help to our Environment

help

Whether you are a passionate ecologist or not, you decided to get some few tips how to (at least) try to save our planet like me. Thank you!

1. Take the free plastic bags only in case, they are really necessary

The-War-on-Plastic-Bags-01Even you go to shop a vegetable or fruit, there everywhere in the grocery or supermarket the shelves are occupied with rolls of transparent plastic bags and everyone grab them to place into them bananas, peppers or anything else. That’s stupid. You don’t really need a plastic bag for a bunch of bananas or 1 pepper. Take it only when you shop something small. Litle small potatoes (getting 20 little potatoes to scale could piss off the cashier a bit). Same with the shopping bags. Try to buy some folding bag made of cloth and have it as an accessory. If you have really take the shopping plastic bag, use it later as a garbage bag for a plastic waste.

2. Don’t buy Zewa flushable paper tube ‘Aqua Tube’

aquatube

It may looks super-ecological, because the packaging is covered with words like biodegradable and recyclable. Don’t get it wrong. Recyclable and recycled are two different things. The classical toilet paper tubes are in 90% cases made of recycled paper already. That’s also why you can’t put them into paper recycling bins or flush them into the toilet. (Instead of that, trash it into mixed waste). The paper have been already recycled so many times, it’s not recyclable anymore. If you buy the Aqua Tube, it means Zewa has to buy new paper (understand cut new trees) which hasn’t been recycled yet to make it recyclable. And biodegradable word is just a ‘tinsel’. Because I have worked in place which was collecting old paper, I know these places are fully loaded with old paper ready to be recycled. So there is really no good reason to waste new trees for flushable tubes and neither flush them into the toilet only because they are biodegradable.

3. Gas – The most environmentally friendly way of heating
gas-heating-repair

If you are living in country where you need to get some warm during the winter and you are or you will be planning what kind of heating (or also kitchen stove) you should use, the right answer is gas. In the ratio between gas, electricity, wood and coal, the gas is the best. Electricity becomes from gas/coal generators. Wood heating would kill our planet immediately and coal is not so expensive, but it produces a many of harmful substances.

4. Recycle things you don’t needRecycle_Logo

Before you will want to throw to the garbage bin something you don’t need or is broken, think if you could gift it to anyone instead. Clothes put into the special bins or ask in the nearest Salvation Army. The old broken handbags, buttons, books, broken radio, jam jars, light bulbs.. On this planet live so many creative people who will be happy to get this for free – just let them to pick it up by themselves and you will be happy you helped to someone who will create something absolutely fantastic. You can give that person your e-mail address and tell him/her to send you pictures of the artwork, when it will be done. Maybe you will get also new friends.

5. Use bicycle or public transport in the cities

citybikeThere is nothing better than fresh air in your hair (if you are not bald) when you are riding a bicycle! Bicycle, longboard, skateboard, scooter – any of these are totally environmentally friendly. No fumes, toxic, no heating this planet. Just you – sexy on the bike. You can make it also your new hobby. Using a public transport instead of car can be very helpful also. The bus, train or a metro are still more environmentally friendly, because they can carry more passengers at once. And plus the monthly pass costs four time less than gasoline used for your daily transport to the office and back home.

6. Buy products palm oil free

orangutansIf you haven’t heard about palm oil problem, get some information right here. Some kinds of biscuits and sweets will break your heart, but maybe you will decide to not support products made of it.

Thank you for paying attention to this post.
