  • More details about your skills

    I am a keen gardener, love getting my hand dirty, turning up compost, planting, hoeing, tendering plant. I love the feeling of harvesting my own food knowing that it has grown organically. And of course, serving them up deliciously go into the whole philosophy of enjoyment. Lets say I got a few recipes up my sleeve. I studied Ecology and have worked in this fields for years. In fact, for my job I had to live in forest for an extended period of time. I could share some outdoor surviving skills with you. Additional to the eco-work I have done, in one project I involved was to build a constructed wetland for waste water treatment, could be helpful for eco-housing projects. Throughout the years, I have also worked as business administrator so I can offer some help in this. And if languages is your thing, I speak 5 languages, Mandarin, Cantonese, English, Farsi and Malay. Pick one and let's practice together.
    Zahra graduated as Master in Physics, she is a skilled engineer and can teach you computer languages. She got a good eye for details and design, I trust her to dress me up and leave all the interior design and color matching to her, trust me she is really good at this. So no surprise she was the employer of the month in the cake decoration shop that she worked part time as a student. She also has a certificate from a famous Persian cooking school, so could always share her skills with you. Last but not least, Zahra just scored a brilliant 7.5 for her IELTS exam, so she could give you some tips about the exam.

    We believe in living in a healthy and harmonious environment, thus we are trying to learn as much as we can to achieve this lifestyle. Yoga, meditation, eco-living. We have the idea of creating such calm, eco-friendly for ourselves in the future. And as we speak, Zahra is learning Phyton and Neural Networks for her PhD, so could be useful to get some helping hand on this
