A veterinary assistance is necessary for this matter. Don’t just buy medicines and use in your flock without consulting your veterinarian. Preventive is always better than cure.
➢ MANPOWER – The most important key factor for free-range chicken farming is your manpower or your poultry caretaker. A caretaker should at least attend a seminar to learn and know the basic principles of free-range chicken farming. Every livestock farming’s success depends on the caretaker too.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -



Siomai, the best Chinese style snack of all time. For some people like me every bite of siomai is like heaven on earth. Especially when it comes with the garlic on top and a deep of soy sauce with calamansi and don’t forget the chili please. This snack is very common on malls, road side and supermarkets where people are very visible.

But guess what? You can actually do this delicious snack at home. Very far from buying on a food cart, when you make this at home you will never worry on how many pieces you have eaten already and how much are you going to pay for it. And on the brighter side except from not worrying on how much you will pay for it, you can earn money out of it.


I have here the recipe and ingredients to make your own Perfect  Siomai:

Ingredients

  • 1 kg ground pork (chicken and beef)
  • 1/3 cup chopped turnips (singkamas)
  • 3/4 cup chopped carrots
  • 2 tbsp. or 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 medium or 1 large minced onion(s)
  • bunch of spring onions or leeks
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 g seasonings
  • 50 pcs. large or 100 pcs. small wanton or siomai wrapper
  • Soy sauce, calamansi (lemon or kumquats), sesame oil and chilli paste (for the sauce)


Siomai Cooking Instructions:


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Arrange 10 wrappers in a tray, and weigh 100 g of siomai mixture. Place 2 tsp of meat in each wrapper until nothing is left unfilled. Each wrapper will have 10 grams of siomai.
  3. To enclose, gather up the edges of the wrapper and gently fold it so that it forms a basket shape, with the top of the filling exposed. Press lightly as you pleat each side. Or, if you don’t want to expose the filling, use a bigger wrapper. Do the same on the remaining mixture left.
  4. After the wrapping, boil water and brush steamer with oil.
  5. Keep the water boiling for 2-3 minutes, arrange the siomai in the steamer and let stand for 15-20 minutes or longer for larger pieces.
  6. Serve with soy sauce, calamansi and sesame oil. Chilli paste is optional.


Chili Sauce for Siomai:


  • 1/8 kilo Chillies (Siling Labuyo)
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • dried shrimp or meat finely chopped or grind (optional)


Siomai Chili Sauce Cooking Instruction:
Combine chopped chillies, dried shrimp or meat and minced garlic then simmer for around 20 minutes or till most of the water has evaporated. Add oil, simmer and stir well.

There you have it, your very own Special Siomai. When you have plans on selling your product be sure to have a good presentation. A good packaging attracts more customers. You can start selling on your neighborhood, schools and offices.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -



Talking about money making while you are at home? This is happening right now, everywhere!

Freelancers, that’s what we call them.  They are the person who stays at home raising kids, or old enough to have a full-time job, or a person who is disabled and find it hard to leave home every day.

But whatever reason it is you want to earn money.

I have here list of Extra Income Ideas to Start from Home Today:

1. COMPUTER REPAIR/ TROUBLESHOOTER

Most of computer owners now a day only know how to use computer, but don’t know anything about maintaining or cleaning it.  All they know is that if they have anti-virus their computer is safe. Yes! Safe from viruses. But how about on taking care of it?
Here is where this repairing goes, offer them the skills you have and be sure to meet their satisfaction.

2. WEBSITE DESIGNING

Almost all of the businesses now have their own website. If you have enough knowledge about web designing, no doubt you’ll earn big in this industry. All you need is good eye on designing and formal training.

Are you a website designer? Find a job here.

3. BAKING

If you are good on baking cakes, cup cakes and cookies and have a good sense on designing why not offer it to the neighborhood or local markets?  Or even on facebook and other personal social sites. People now a days love to pay for that custom cakes for special events and parties.
You can also have that small café in your garage offering them your cakes with a drink to compliment those sweet creations of yours.

4. CAR WASH

Is your garage big enough? Why not have a carwash? If you are living in a village or subdivision this one will work for you. You can offer you neighbors to wash their cars especially on weekends. The whole family can help you on washing cars. This idea also adds more bonding with you family while earning money.

5. ROOM for RENT

Have a vacant room? If you have a house near a college or University this kind of business fits you. Students don’t want to travel that long to go to school. You can also offer rooms for tourists especially when house is near a tourist destination. You can offer them free breakfast and other amenities.

Remember, the number one thing that guests need is to feel at home while far away from home.

6. LAUNDRY SERVICE

Laundry?? Tell me about it. Many people including me hate doing this stuff. So I’d rather pay than doing the laundry.  But if you want to earn money and knows how to pull this one, this one is the best home business for you. You just have to make sure that you know how to deal with different kind of fabrics and do the right process of washing them.  And don’t forget the fabric conditioner, you must have that long lasting smell clothes. For me it is one of the trademarks of a laundry shop.

7.  TUTORING

Do you have that patience when it comes to kids?  If you do, this one will work for you. Many parents right now are very busy on work, meeting, talks and other social events. Which is when they got home they are tired enough to teach their kids with their home works and other school related stuffs. This is where the opportunity for you comes out.  You just have to know the subject where you are good at. Of course this won’t happen if you will just sit and wait, ask your friends and neighbors. Do a little survey at this topic and then offer them what you have.

Become an online teacher.

Be your own boss. Don’t ever let a second of your life sitting, you have to earn money. Let’s be practical, even a cup of coffee now a days is very expensive. Have a part time job and earn at home while spending quality time with your family.
