成功翻新五張被遺棄的櫈!

沒有自動替代文字。

成功翻新五張被遺棄的櫈。有新櫈坐,家人都很高興!

沒多久前在屋苑拾到幾張只是膠布面破爛的櫈,差點被送到堆填。
拾回家後花了點功夫,找出手上的碎布,裁裁剪剪,再釘釘鎚鎚,便把它們翻新,多得鄰居Alfred借出釘槍協助才能完成!

走在街上看到這些款式的櫈售價$120張。半天的勞動,無啦啦賺咗$600蚊👍🏻

Living a green lifestyle

( Varsity CUHK– Reporters: Chester Chan, Chloe Kwan, Stanley Lam, 28-12-2016)

Words like ‘green’, ‘sustainable’, ‘renewable’ and ‘eco-friendly’ seem to be buzzwords these days, and the phrase ‘green living’ is used to sell everything from housing developments to cleaning products. But it is one thing to talk the talk and another to walk the walk.

Meet Law Yip-man, who decided to drastically change the way he lives after taking a course promoting sustainable living held by a well-known environmentalists who goes by the name ‘Wild Man’ (野人). Law moved to rural Lau Fau Shan to live a basic life, closer to nature. He makes his own enzyme detergent and uses corn-cobs to clean his dishes, collects and composts food waste and uses firewood to boil soup. He also promotes the reduction of waste by using and helping to distribute leftover food in the community.

Retired civil servant Steven (who does not want to disclose his full name) enjoys more ‘mod cons’ in his home than Law does. But he has made an effort to be more environmentally friendly by installing solar panels on his roof. The panels supply electricity to heat the water in his house. While the set-up saves commercially produced energy, it doesn’t save Steven any money. He says solar electricity is not cost effective in Hong Kong, where electricity is relatively cheap. It also cannot produce enough energy to power utilities like air conditioners. This means there is little incentive for Hong Kong people to invest in the technology in their homes.

Even if that is the case, blogger Lam Lai-shan says ordinary people can still make efforts to be more environmentally responsible in different aspects of everyday life. Lam, who is a homemaker, says not much money is needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Lam makes her own household products, for instance, she makes soaps from waste oil and enzyme detergents. She also uses eco-friendly cleaning products and washing powders like camellia seed powder, she also has a workshop room where she makes DIY products, upcycles old clothes into shopping bags and dyes clothes with vegetable dyes. Lam also shuns chain stores and shops in small local shops.

She promotes a green lifestyle through her blog, where she is known as ‘Green Mama’ and shares tips on green living. Lam also organises various activities, such as constructing a ‘green map’ showing the locations of recyclers, veggie cafes, and other places of interest for those who want to spread the idea of green living.

“It’s just a small group that practises [green lifestyles], and the public thinks it can only be done by green activists and not ordinary citizens. [But] everyone can do it,” says Lam.

柬蒲寨特飲 Cambodian Farmer

剛從柬蒲寨吳哥窟回來,到過一間頗出名的酒店FCC晚餐,叫了一柸曾獲奬的cocktail 叫 Cambodian Farmer,回來製作改良版。

除咗青檸汁,我還把檸檬葉🍃磨粹,用咗檸檬酒同對腸胃好嘅果寡糖!正!👍🏻

🍃檸檬葉唔駛買,在家種番棵檸檬就隨時有有機的啦!自己種的有機檸檬🍋,食完隻檸檬個皮千祈唔好掉,我通常批出嚟做muffin或煲雜菜湯,亦可冲飲品用。
如果用個皮做酵素,加埋靚黃糖的話,係有機酵素嚟,可以用嚟飲添!

新發明食譜「蘿蔔年糕」

14690829_1180686258682114_4374240332760240451_n.jpg

早前因有人散大量糯米粉(懷疑是過期的),綠活地圖北區區長Carmen給了我頗多的分量,我便分發給不介意吃過期食品的人,包括媽媽。

她竟誤當粘米粉做了一大兜蘿蔔糕😅。我們當然不會浪費,照吃可也!
誤打誤撞下,媽媽這個新發明「蘿蔔年糕」外脆內軟,口感似足日本年糕咁,不過有浸蘿蔔味囉,好好味啊(雖然煎時癡底個樣有啲唔太靚仔)😋

囝囝仲提議可以夾紫菜呢!🙃

師奶手作派對

一向都知道學音樂對孩子的一生有幫助,所以從他們小時使鼓勵孩子兩學音樂。現實當然要投資不少金錢。

他們選擇學敲擊、長笛,都一直嚷着要買鼓棍袋及長笛袋。

我這個腌尖兼且孤寒的媽媽,可以自己做的,就盡量不肯再額外花錢在其他配件上。再加上市面上的選擇不多,一般的材料亦是一些合成纖維等質料,相對價錢亦太昂貴。偶然到外國的琴行看,款式漂亮的也貴得買不下手,索性自己動手做紙樣、買布及配件,親手縫製。

先後完成了這兩件作品,那份滿足感不能言語。製作過程的確令我靜下心來,很喜歡這種working meditation!也希望自己能多花時間在家縫縫補補,造更多布藝小物。

孩子們知道我付出的心血也很珍惜的使用它。

每次和幾位師奶開手作派對都太興奮極了!我們省回逛商場、打牌、check價位的時間,時不時分享知識、物資、時間、技術、食物… 也實在太忙了。能有這些充實的生活,實在幸福!

PS. 感謝指導我的好朋友–車縫達人Lowell!🙏🏻她細心教我step by step 的完成每個步驟。

駁筆—給短筆多一次生命

最近facebook有位朋友在「再見垃圾桶!」group問Group友關於何以再用短筆的問題,那時就想起當年的分享……

於2007年7月17日撰文:

我一向有吝嗇的習慣,家裡貯存了大量超短的鉛筆不忍掉棄。

去年製蜜餞洛神花時朋友提議拾些棄置的爛遮柄用作除掉花芯,靈機一動,想到這些遮柄亦可大派用場,自製了好些低Quality的長筆筒,雖然能夠駁長鉛筆,正常書寫,但始終搖搖擺擺不大穩妥。

最近發現原來日本有出產這些鉛筆輔助軸,雖然價錢比較昂貴,但相比起那些易爛花巧的塑膠筆筒來得實用,亦可讓小朋友們學懂珍惜。

相信不太多文具舖有售,有興趣找找看吧!
