I bought this pictorial book on nice Malaysian homes and architecture just a few days ago. There are some very nice and interesting architectural examples that I found to my interest. Here are some of my favorites.

Title: The New Malaysia House

By Robert Powell

Photographs by Albert Lim Ks

Published by Periplus Editions (HK) Ltd

 



Pg. 30-31 :

Beautiful veranda. High ceilings. Beautiful flooring. Nice ‘fish’ pool. Great trees. Need awning though…I would have a awning over the whole deck area….as I am surrounded by trees so it wouldn’t take away from the view at all. I like protection from elements.


Pg. 40-41 :

Great setting. Great trees. Need more windows though. More windows would allow me to enjoy the outdoors and tress very much. I wouldn’t have the pool though. I would have maybe a large area to feed the birds.


Pg. 44 :

Beautiful. I love the trees. I love the trees. I love the trees. I wouldn’t have a swimming pool though. Everything else ok…


Pg. 66 – 69 :

Fantastic, calm, surreal feeling. I love this house. The cement look walls and floors. I love the cement look very much. Anything can match it. If feels basic and feels very cooling also. The long walkway would be wonderful to walk at night or morning. My Mumu and Oser would love it. Can eat on the walkway also.


Pg. 86 :

I love the indoor space – without grass, so no ticks – nice for my Mumu/Oser to run. I wouldn’t have the wood though. I don’t like the fast impermanence wood floorings. If I have to be in the city, then this inner sanctum is so necessary. I would add a lovely 5 ft standing Buddha and it would be perfect.


Pg. 92-99 :

The house is so-so. I don’t prefer the wood incorporated. I would lessen the wood used for the house by 80% for sure… But I like the setting very much. I like the airy feeling of the interiors. I like the ‘woods’ surrounding the house a lot! The trees and green surrounding the house would be a huge draw for me..


Pg. 114 :

I like the open space, high ceilings tremendously. The high ceilings are great…again I would lessen the wood as it looks very heavy and dated to me….but the basic feeling of spaciousness is very attractive.


Pg. 135 :

Fantastic building on a slope. Good to see. Wow!!!!!!! I love the awning that extends way out so no rain gets in. I love the forest right outside….this is fantastic for me.


Pg. 149 :

I find concealed lighting very nice…easy on the eyes…makes the place feel warm and inviting.


Pg. 154 :

I love the fish pool being so big!!! I love it next to the house! I love to come out and see the fishes! I really like how the house floats on the fish pool. You can see it from whichever part of the house. Nice. Nice. I would love to see big huge fishes here…


Pg. 157 :

I like the concept of the house very much, where it surrounds the open air pool. I wouldn’t go for wood.


Pg. 166-167 :

Great house. The window into the vegetation is such a nice luxury and soothing for the mind/eyes/soul. It is so what I like. Fish pool within the house has a modern, minimalistic feel that uplifts the place to be more than just a house.


Pg. 168 :

I love the fish pools ‘mixed’ into the living of the house! But NO marble floors please. Too slippery for mumu.


Pg. 204 – 233 :

I absolutely love the setting of these few houses built on slopes. It’s amazing. It is my fantasy wish come true. This is a house of my fantasies for sure….Look at the mountains, the trees, the mist, the sky…so etheral. Look at the house with glass walls, like living in the mountains but with conveniences. I would spend so much time here writing, doing my practices, making offerings, feeding birds, reading on the veranda, and making lots of incense offerings watching my prayers billow into the heavens….I would love this type of existence..this type of abode. My Mumu and Oser would be so happy. I would also have a huge Medicine Buddha statue of stone placed outside to bless the animals. Plant seeds of enlightenment in their minds. This is like my dream house to retire and eventually die in…..

Pg. 209 :

I love this room on pg.209, surrounded by the forest, minus the heavy wood materials used though. I like solid ceilings. I dread ceilings that leak…have experienced too much of that over the last few decades…A contractor that cannot avoid leaking ceilings does not know his craft..Any architect or builder or contractor we work with must insure we do not have leaky roofs, leaking windows or water to come through…otherwise it defeats the purpose of a house. I am very particular on that…so many contractors fail in this aspect sad to say……But, Wow…the high ceilings here in this picture, open space (out with the piano) are absolutely glorious. It’s like living in a huge, convenient tree house….Look through the following pictures of this house..spectacular…


Pg. 218 :

See the room on stilts overlooking the forest below. That’s a great bedroom. I can see myself in this room with the rain…this would be a FANTASTIC DREAM BEDROOM FOR ME. I usually spend most of my time in my room as I don’t go out much. So the ‘bedroom’ space and location/views are paramount to me. This room would be my totally ideal bedroom. I can just lock myself in with my practice, mac and dogs. I will bear with the heavy wood usage in this case..I will make an exception…LOL…seriously..great bedroom or room for me…

Pg. 221 :

Great bathroom! I have had tiny small claustrophobic bathrooms most of my life..this would be like AM I REALLY IN THE BATHROOM???? I love the open and airy feel of the place…clean airy bathrooms are very healthy for the mind I feel. Nice house on the slopes with plenty of greens.

Pg. 227 – 229 :

What a fantastic house, style and colour. I love it very much.


Pg. 231 :

This is my absolute dream bedroom also….green, green, green…and no wood finishing much! I would just blog, read, do my sadhana, and hang out in this bedroom always with Mumu and Oser. It excites me just seeing it! I really could just live out of this bedroom….My goodness, I can imagine me waking up to this every single day..I would be so excited to wake up and see the forest….this house is in Malaysia….


Pg. 233 :

A house on a very steep slope.


Pg. 244 :

Great pool. Great trees. Great stones laid around the pool. I wouldn’t swim, but make it a fish pool! I like the forest surrounding it for sure.

    I was walking past a second hand shop on Western Ave selling old things. They had a Japanese-style clay Buddha which was beige in colour on the floor, holding the door open. I thought the shopkeeper would collect a lot of negative karma without knowing if he kept such a holy item on the floor as a doorstop. So I went in to talk to him, but he didn’t look like he wanted to talk or that he even cared. So I asked him the price and he said US$5. I purchased it so he did not collect more negative karma. I was 17 years old and that was in 1982.

    I escorted my new Buddha home and washed it lightly and wiped it. I placed it on my altar and was happy with the Buddha. I would do my meditations, prayers, sadhanas, mantras and prostrations in front of this shrine daily. When I left for India in 1987, I could not bring this Buddha along and gave it to a friend. It was a nice size and I made offerings to this Buddha for many years in Los Angeles. In front of the Buddha I placed His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s photo. I remember I was so relieved that the price was affordable. But US$5 that time was still expensive for me but worth it I thought. But I was happy to have brought the Buddha home. Tsem Rinpoche

    These are truly amazing work by architects in Malaysia. Having a great place and well planned can really put people at ease and creates a happy mood. Thank you rinpoche.

  5. Jessica Yap on Mar 17, 2013 at 2:09 pm

    Oh wow, I am amazed by the pictures! I really, really like the designs of the houses! My fav. would be:

    pg 154: i love the idea of having a fish pond right next to the house and it would be so calming to just sit and watch the fishies swimming around..

    and page 231: The glass bedroom is to die for! It would be such a joy to wake up in this bedroom everyday. The view is perfect to do our daily Saddhanas. Just lovely!!

    I hope that Rinpoche gets the dream home that Rinpoche loves in KFR! =)

    Thank you very much for sharing, Rinpoche!

    I Want Nice Designe for house 5,000 sf

  7. David Lai on Jan 21, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    I am revisiting this blog post and I am just enthralled by the sheer simplicity of these beautiful homes and the amazing view and space it affords the occupants of these homes. It feels absolutely beautiful to just look at these homes. With the coming up of KFR and the enchanted forest, I am sure, it will offer some to the view and space that Rinpoche had so badly yearned for all his life.

    Not all the design elements found in these beautiful homes are implemented into Rinpoche’s but I think that the main essential element is the forest, greens and hills are featured in the Enchanted Forest. That, we have quite a bit in the KFR. Like I said before, Rinpoche is using himself but ultimately, he wants the place to exude the same feeling so people would be conducive for spiritual practice.

  8. Li Kheng on Jun 6, 2011 at 2:41 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the types of style and design Rinpoche likes.

    I can imagine the general style Menara Kechara and KWPC will take on in the near future. Wow, Kecharians will not only get to practice Dharma in convenience and comfort but also in an environment that is esthetically appealing, which are all conducive elements for Dharma practice during these times 🙂

    This is also very helpful reference for the designer for our tea house because the preferred elements provided are very specific!

  9. David Lai on Apr 11, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing these beautiful home structures and I do like many elements. I like most of what Rinpoche likes like the green trees, mist, high ceilings, glass walls, pools and concealed lighting. All of the houses here are fantastic works of living space and I do believe that Rinpoche is looking at such beautiful homes is to recreate the feeling of calm and beauty so spiritual practice would be conducive for us at KWPC in the future.

    However, I do like what Thierry and Andrew had commented and gave great insight into what would make such elegants both functional, beautiful to look at and balanced. Of all the beautiful homes, I really like Sum Sum Valley House on page 221, a white-washed structure perched amongst trees and everything indoors looks white, calm, modern and clean and retaining some rustic appeal with the great view of the canopy of trees. Love it.

  10. martin on Apr 10, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    Great looking homes Rinpoche. I espeially love the ones on pages 204 and 218. I too love to be in the hills and close to trees and greenery. Evenings would be the best part…just watching the day retreat into the forests and the mist roll by lazily.

    I think I took up golf 10 years ago, not so much for the sport, but more to be close to the smell of the grass and trees.

    Just looking at the pictures calms me down and makes me want KWPC even more. Thank you for the post.

  11. Margaretlee on Apr 10, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these nice and unique houses with us.

    Trees, mountains, skylight, open space, high ceiling,windows, flooring, wood elements, water elements, ponds, color theme, lighting and layout etc etc, all play a very important role in the overall look and feel of the house.

    Rinpoche has always been fond of a view with trees and mountains since I have known Rinpoche. I think that is the best view of all, if I may say. I am lucky too that the apartment I am living in also have a lovely mountain and trees view.

    I recalled Rinpoche sending me cards back 10 years ago with a mistic scene of mountains and trees and Rinpoche wrote me a message saying that these scenes always give Rinpoche a feeling of peace and serenity. I could see Rinpoche trying to bestow a sense of stability and peace in my then much troubled life.

    I am not acadamically qualified as an artichect or designer, but having done a few renovation projects for Kechara and for Tsem Ladrang, I understand what nightmares we could face with contractors here in Malaysia. As project manager, we really need to be on their toes everyday. But like what Rinpoche has mentioned, some of these great houses are in Malaysia, so it is possible to have such high standards.

    I would love to be involved in building a house like this for Rinpoche, and fullfill Rinpoche’s dream.

    I second Andrew, can I also have a little room in this house also? 🙂

  12. Andrew James Boon on Apr 10, 2011 at 12:26 am

    Dearest Rinpoche,

    Here are my two cents worth on the above postings. Thank you for sharing this and for the book too!

    Much love… Andrew

    MY COMMENTS:

    Page 30-31
    I do like the open space of the veranda. Seems like the house floats amongst the tree canopy. Brilliant! Can’t really tell from the picture but perhaps bi-folding doors would be better as opposed to sliding ones as the doors can then fully open giving uninterrupted views

    Page 40-41
    I agree with what Rinpoche says about having more windows. Real shame that with that view the only “opening” in the house facing this view is limited.

    Page 44
    I too love dark pools like Thierry mentioned. The reflection created in dark pools are spectacular!

    Page 66-69
    I love the clean lines with very little obstructing the views from inside. However this may prove to be a problem with privacy as it works both ways.

    Page 86
    Indoor space with natural light has always been a personal favourite of mine. It brings back memories/feel of old colonial shophouses of Penang. Perfect way to bring in natural light into a space. Has to be zen like though like in this picture or it will defeat the purpose as it would seem like one is cramming a garden into a small space.

    Page 92-99
    I only like the level of the house where it flows into the garden. Beautifully articulated from the sliding doors, down the short flight of stairs and onto the lawn. Rest of the house looks bulky and top heavy!

    Page 114
    I LOVE high ceilings too! I do like the geometrical shadows the top paneling creates onto the floors… very Wallpaper Magazine ish… hehehe

    Page 135
    The extended awning is great but I do not like the ‘supports’. It makes it look almost commercial like (i.e. airports)

    Page 149
    Hear Hear… Am a great advocate for concealed lighting too… the less we see of the actual light fixture, the better… hehehe

    Page 154
    I wonder if there would be problems with “dampness” in such a design? I recall a childhood memory… a guesthouse we used to stay in whilst on the way from Ipoh to Penang… had a similar pond and I remember I used to bend down and strain myself trying to look for the fish that swam under… I was very young… hehehe Interesting how from a picture one recalls vivid memories!

    Page 157
    I like the fact that the house has various pavilions all around and on a “pond”. Very resort like but too much wood I agree. I can even imagine the beautiful sound the rain would make on this body of water… I love the rain!!! I love the sound of rain on water!!!

    Page 166-167
    I like the high ceilings but I find the juxtaposing lines and strange angles distressing. My OCD cant take it… hehehe

    Page 168
    Interesting how some parts of the floor are glass so one can see right through at the fishes… why didnt they have this when i was that kid in the guesthouse… hehehe. Great to look at design but not practical for pets at all.

    Page 204-233
    This as I mentioned to Rinpoche is actually for rent on a daily basis. It is used as a venue for events like weddings etc. Great pictures but the house itself suffers from the dense vegetation around it I am told… i.e. dampness is a problem when building in areas like this and materials need to be well thought of.

    Page 209
    I do not like the look of the house from the outside but the open plan space of this living room is great. One feels like one is in a very large treehouse… LOVE tree houses… I always wished as a kid I could have one. Maybe in KWPC, I can finally have that wish!

    Page 218
    Enderong house as it is known has some pools/ponds in the lower levels of the property which is sublime.

    Page 221
    I love bathrooms with natural light and that look out into greens…. Veranda looks like the perfect place for yoga, meditation and sadhanas…

    Page 227-229
    My favourite one of the lot. Clean lines. Simple. Brilliant views all round. Great use of space and it captures the evening sun too. Very well thought out design!!! LOVE IT LOVE IT… Can I have a tiny little room in this house next to Rinpoche please… hehehe

    Page 244
    I can just imagine an 8 foot green tara just at the edge of the pool, trees framing her beautiful image! Floating candle offerings filling the pool… WOW! Yes please!!!

  13. Thierry Janssens on Apr 9, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    WOW, thank you for this post Rinpoche, I like, I like, I like…
    I am taking the liberty to add my pinch of salt:

    pg 30-31
    Very nice to be with the tree canopies, they frame the view! They complement the view.

    pg 40-41
    This house is built for the son of a famous Malaysian public figure, and is designed by Kerry Hill.
    Kerry Hill is a true master when it comes to architecture, I respect him greatly.
    He has also designed The Datai in Langkawi, one of the best hotel in the world and which won an Aga Khan prize for its excellent design respecting the natural surroundings (the jungle), as well as the natural water ways through the site.
    Actually, The Datai is an example as to how to build KWPC, with similar problems of foundations and natural water ways going through the buildings, steps, terraces, courtyards, etc…

    pg 44
    I like dark pools, they act as mirrors and they make the landscape double in size. they are great visual tools.

    pg 66-69
    I spotted that house in a magazine a few years ago and was simply in awe.
    I have remembered the name of the architect ever since, Kevin Low, and he has since done more remarkable work, truly remarkable!
    The thing that I admire most in his work is that he limits his palette of materials and colors to what is available in Malaysia, and to the craftmanship of the average malaysian contractor and then turns this “limitation” into a work of real poetry and sensibility, with great sincerity to the materials used.
    To me, Kevin Low IS the greatest Malaysian architect.

    pg 86
    Possibly, Mumu and Oser might not like to walk in the pebbles so much though…

    pg 92-99
    It looks as if the house was really designed for the views and the light

    pg 114
    Space is WOW! The acoustic must be rather un-comfortable though with glass walls, plaster ceilings and stone floors, I would have advocated for some curtains for softness and acoustic.

    pg 135
    Interesting…

    pg 149
    Very nice tall windows. Interesting way to use roof trusses!

    pg 154
    This is a house built over a fish pond, not a fish pond built in a house… I like that aspect of it.

    pg 157
    I agree with Rinpoche’s comment on the wood, it is heavy, it is dark, it is thick and old-fashioned.

    pg 166-167
    I also like the large glass windows opening up to the outside, though I think the design is a bit over-done, so many things going on, so many details, to my taste, I feel the presence (the EGO) of the designer a bit too much.

    pg 168
    Water bodies are dangerous for pets, they need to have a way out, and maybe even trained to get out in case they fall. Too many dogs have drawned in swimming-pool, unable to propel themselves back up on the deck.

    pg 204-233
    They are beautiful houses and extra-ordinary sites indeed,truly exceptional.

    pg 218
    One with the view.

    pg 221
    Good to know that there is no neighbors! 🙂

    pg 227-229
    Every room has a view, excellent design!

    pg 244
    The good works of Kevin Low again! Thumbs up to Kevin Low!

    On cold winter’s night in New York City, Tsem Rinpoche saw a homeless man and dog. Moved by his plight, Rinpoche bought warm food for the man and his dog, as well as gloves and other cold weather gear and personal care items. Rinpoche even gave the man his personal rosary beads, which Rinpoche has used to make many daily prayers. By by the person having it, it will bless him tremendously…

    Some short videos do not need a lot of explanation. This is one of them.

    This video and the people involved touched me to the core. People who go out of their way to make life better for another living being are the greatest minds to walk the earth. People who care and do their best to make a difference are people who are really using their human potential for something with meaning. People who actually do something.

    Please watch this video and share with others. Why share? Because you care enough to create awareness which will lead to understanding and eradication of these types of unnecessary sufferings. It’s the least you and I can do is to create awareness.

    Have compassion. Practice in life what you admire in conversation-compassion.

    Well its truly a very effective practice and should be included in our daily sahdana. A effective way to purify our negative karma, which has accumulated over the years. With the proper practice and visualization we could transform what is negative and turning them into sublime offerings. It will then allow Dorje Shugden to help us further through the creation of conducive conditions for Dharma practice and the elimination of obstacles.
    Thanks Rinpoche and Pastor David for this well explained sharing.

    Beautiful pictures of H.E Zava Damdin Rinpoche, an erudite Mongolian Buddhist master conferring the initiation of Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden to a crowd of 10,000 people. He was recognised as the reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia. A great scholar within the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, he wrote numerous volumes of philosophic writings which are still been used till today. Interesting read of a GREAT Lama.
    Thank you for this sharing

    Lama Thubten Phurbu is truly an incredible , respected Gelug high Lama with his incredible achievements and accomplishments. Having up hold the lineage of Tsongkhapa and the practice of Dorje Shugden . He has done so much speaking up on the ban on Dorje Shugden and has contributed many beneficial projects in Tibet and China. Lama Thubten Phurbu is outspoken about Dorje Shugden and spreading Shugden’s practice and Tsongkhapa’s lineage to as many as to the West, India and Nepal .
    Lama Thubten Phurbu have done much more for the Tibetan people than the CTA have. He travels occasionally to give teachings to preserve these precious lineages for the future. While the CTA is opposing the Chinese and creating mistrust, Lama Thubten Phurbu is building trust with the Chinese government while at the same time upholding the greater welfare of all Tibetans. Wow… Lama Thubten Phurbu has even compiled many prayer texts for the benefits of all sentient beings. Interesting read.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for the sharing, some people love to senses excitement through supernatural power. I have seen the video it scary because it is true from experience. When it come for movies it is interesting to understand how curious our mind works.

    From my experiences I have realized that the feeling of terror is the special aspect, unexpected, suspense and the surprise. Usually horror movies often teach us how to protect, to overcome difficult situation, to control the fear, prayer and meditation. The smart and brave characters of a person can be seen with a lot of much struggle.

    I enjoyed this article, it made me to recall some of my doubt and fear memories during my young days.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this special rare Buddha with us. Enlightened beings are very compassionate to have manifested in various forms for various purposes for us to get blessings. This Buddha is manifested specifically for us to curb with our own laziness.

    According to Rinpoche, laziness comes in various forms and not just the superficial laziness that we can easily identify. There are some form of laziness is much more ingrained in us and it may manifest into some other behaviours.

    This afternoon, Tsem Rinpoche, Ladrang Liaison Pastor Loh Seng Piow, Beng Kooi, Fat Monk, and Monlam were in a fish shop in Cheras to look for some fishes for the Ladrang’s pond.

    Rinpoche took the group for a meal in a restaurant nearby. While in the restaurant, Rinpoche saw many fishes in 2 crowded glass tanks, and Rinpoche couldn’t bear it as Rinpoche knew the fate of these fishes – they will take turn to be on dinner plates throughout the Chinese New Year period. The fishes were huge, about 8 or 9 inches long and all of them will be gone in a few days!

    After some negotiation, Fat Monk convinced the restaurant owner to sell the fishes at a reduced price. The owner also gave us all their eels free, knowing that we bought the fishes to be liberated. We also took all the frogs in the restaurant. They were so kind that they told us to liberate the fishes fast and come back to pay later or the next day! They let us go without any payment! I think they were touched by Rinpoche’s act of kindness and reciprocated. No restaurant will let go of their fishes easily during this period as supply of fishes are scarce, and the festive season is the peak period to make maximum profit.

    This is so horrible, the way how the horse is being slaughtered! It is not humane at all. Imagine the fear the horse has to go through before its last moment.

    How can we still enjoy our meat dishes knowing how much pain the animals have to suffer? We use horses for horse racing when they are still young and strong. When they are older, we kill them for their meat. This is life but we are treating them like an object.

    If we want a more peaceful world, less violence, we have to learn to generate compassion. One of the ways to develop our compassion is to stop eating meat because we don’t want animals to suffer. If we can afford and have time, we can also consider adopting animals from the shelters. As the demand for meat decreases, there will be less killing.

    Chinese activists recently stood up to dog meat traders and rescued 900 dogs bound for slaughter for human consumption. Many of the dogs were clearly stolen family pets, even wearing tags and collars: Huskies, German Shepherds, Poodles and the like, many extremely ill and dying from the slave ship like conditions of the truck and cages. One woman found her lost Golden Retriever on the truck, but was told she could not take him home unless she paid off the trader. The activists were beaten and after a 50 hour standoff finally rescued all of the dogs. However, by that time some dogs had died and the activists were forced to bury them at the scene.

    The ‘Ocean Drover’ is regarded by the live export industry as being one of the ‘best’ vessels on the water. But right now, animals confined within it are suffering and dying.

    After breaking down four weeks ago, just days after leaving Australia, the ship has been travelling at a reduced speed – extending an already long and arduous journey for the 48,000 sheep and cattle on board. On Friday it was revealed that the Ocean Drover had to make an emergency stop near Djibouti, Africa, after running low on feed for the animals, and now the exporter has confirmed the mounting deaths on board – still days from their final destination. One can only imagine what the surviving animals are enduring.

    The exporter has expressed dismay at not achieving their usual ‘success rate’ but this is an industry that judges ‘success’ by the number of animals still standing at the end of a voyage. Sheep suffer and die on every live export ship that leaves Australia and their deaths are considered just a routine part of doing business. The animals onboard the Ocean Drover may be beyond our help. But don’t let their suffering be in vain – your MP needs to hear their story. Please take 2 minutes to call your Federal Member TODAY to express your utter dismay at yet another live export tragedy.

    Hummingbirds are easy to attract to a backyard garden, a cinch to keep well fed, and a joy to watch. These sparkling jewels of sum at mer are easy to love.

    But if you don’t take proper care to provide healthy nectar and clean feeders, they’re also an easy bird to love to death.

    Hummingbird feeders must be kept clean and free from mold and fungus, or the tiny hum-buzzers you so enjoy could develop a serious and deadly fungus infection. This infection causes the tongue to swell, making it impossible for the bird to feed.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
