In Hong Kong, many people care for animals, and they treat animals as their family members. Yet, according to statistics, 4000 stray and abandoned cats and dogs were euthanized last year. The figure shows that many people still do not respect the meaning of life enough and they do not even understand what life education is.
As such, a group of animal protectors, namely Maison de Charlotte pour des Chats et des Chiens, HK Saving Cat and Dog Association, and some cat and dog lovers gathered together to provide food, medical care and even sterilisation services for countless stray and abandoned cats and dogs. What is even more gratifying is that this group of animal volunteers find new owners of these unfortunate cats and dogs, in view of changing their destiny and bringing new life to them.
Hong Kong people are never bored about food choices – from TV programmes to mobile apps, we are constantly fed with news on latest food trends, new restaurants and hottest deals, and our shopping carts are always targets of food manufacturers who compete among themselves to please the tastebuds of the ever demanding consumers.
However, while most people care about taste and costs when it comes to making food choices, few would ever ponder over what their food is really made of, and how they are made - except for the food-conscious ones who gather together not only to share their knowledge on good food but also promote the belief of conscious eating: School of Everyday Life organizes twice a year an Organic food fair and conducts regular workshops on food additives and permaculture; An organic apple snack maker strives to develop local-made natural products with a fair price; A group of parent gardeners and primary school students run a roof-top farm that houses near 400 boxes of certified organic produce... Although their approaches to celebrate good food vary, their smiles and the food they hold on their hand share the same glow.
