Title: Talking about the Pandemic, Thinking about the Poll, like love.

Carrie The Mom said at a press conference last Friday about the Legislative Council delay:

“I live with the epidemic every day, and I don’t have time to care about the election." (Carrie, 2020)

Believe her, she didn’t lie. In the past few days, from the view point on how CCP central government granted all requests of the Hong Kong government, how resources are contributed by them, how our mother country loves Hong Kong people as herself, sending the best experts to help us, blah blah blah, it can be read as that the government has made up its mind to convert the pandemic to vote for the Pro-Beijing camp. Handling the COVID-19 is the same as handling the election, so why bother to distinguish?

Remember the SARS in 2003? The catastrophe that claimed 299 lives. Trace back to the source and we can see, it was CCP government’s delay in reporting the epidemic. Even after the diagnosed entered Hong Kong and spreaded the virus, Hong Kong could not respond immediately. By the time there was an outbreak in the community, everything was too late. From then, no matter how tough our citizens were and how committed our medical and nursing staff were, there left a bloodstain in Hong Kong’s history.

Years passed, when it comes to SARS, see what is the official comment?官方的輿輪風向是甚麼?

“In 2003 SARS, the central government quickly delivered medical supplies. The care and concern of the central government moved us very much." (Tong Jianhua, who was the chief executive during the SARS epidemic and is now the vice chairman of the CPPCC National Committee, 2017)

Does it look like a husband with gambling debts? It made the whole family restless, and he is still telling his wife, “Hey, honey, remember at that time the creditor came to the door? I tried to go out to block it! How brave was I!"

It’s like love.

Now, this dear friend is performing the same trick again.

The severeness of the pandemic in Hong Kong is a fact. However, the 500 hospital beds in the community treatment facilities of the Hospital Authority are already in place. If the government is willing to help, it is absolutely feasible to add reverse triage facilities. The current 500 hospital beds are prepared by the Hospital Authority. What did the government do? You don’t know, I don’t know, nobody knows.

All I know is that the government will have a line in the future. Carrie may sneer and say, “Oh, the 500 beds provided by the HA will be overloaded. I’m more than familiar with it. Let me tell you this: “We cannot rely on HA to make more. Luckily we have strong support from the central government, so two temporary hospitals will be set up!"

In fact, based on various media reports, the location and scale of the two temporary hospitals have been determined. The CCP party is so efficient.

Temporary hospital, why? There is news again. Member in the government said that we must be careful and prepared for the fourth wave of epidemics and winter flu. Therefore, instead of taking precautions about preventing the epidemic, such as preparing for how to operate the social protocol, how to work flexibly, how to arrange online operations, they are building a temporary hospital and wait for the outbreak.

Not to mention the winter flu, more than ample studies have shown that when people have hign awareness of infection prevention, the outbreak of the flu season will be greatly curbed.

In other words, when the number of flu surged every year in the past, why didn’t the government set up a temporary hospital? Such government is either extremely stupid, or it treats the people as extremely stupid. It is not difficult to imagine that in a few years, Carrie will be interviewed, and will be like TUNG before. Oh, how difficult we were back then, fortunately we have all support from the central government!

Don’t forget the national COVID-19 testing. Experts said wholeheartedly that at this point the national testing results are of limited reference value. However, the government didn’t listen at all. Two days ago, “Wen Wei Po", a pro-Beijing newspaper, said the whole population should be tested. Then today news is the government is looking for a place to build a laboratory.

Does this farce sound familar to you? Have you ever experienced that your boyfriend bought you a gift and you didn’t like it, then he lost his temper?

He did not want to please you. What he wanted is him offering and you receving, like charity.

I am not here to deny all support. Increasing the amount of testing is great. With the procedures and standards guaranteed, it can alleviate the burden on Department of Health’s laboratories. What I want to emphasise is that national testing is not necessary. Adding temporary hospitals is a good idea, if it’s under the leadership of the Hospital Authority. It is also suggested to expand the reverse triage. However, does Carrie Lam or CCP need to “speak up" each time for these to come true?

One drama after another, seems this is nothing more than paving the way to rewrite HK’s future history, to turn the sadist into offeror, and to win over some people who don’t know the truth, and the votes will naturally be in favour of the Pro-Beijing camp.

What’s more if next year’s election prediction is not as they wished, sure there will be more tactics yet to come.

The pandemic and political situation have paining Hong Kong people to the bone. Nevertheless, what hurt us the most is that there exists such a regime that distorted the truth and used the pandemic for their own good. And she would claim it is you who conspire and politicized matter.

Do you think it looks like love?
P.S. “像極了愛情" “Very similar to love" is a Sino quote, and a meme, aimed to teach people how to write so-called poetry.

旅遊

18年8月15日十和田湖、奧入瀨溪流及星野


斷咗,不過填少少記憶啦。十和田湖真係唔太記得,有少少雨,大風,睇咗陣湖、船、鴨仔同少少手信。


神社OK古舊,又例牌買啲平安嘢~


有舊求子木,薯叫我唔好咁衰咁樣影人,不過係幾搞笑,又睇唔到樣。


然後望住湖景食咗個好普通嘅晏。


跟住就去行青森另一大景點奧入瀨溪流,沿溪不少靚景植物,應該都唔少昆蟲雀,不過我哋自然冇咁好心機。係啲日本小朋友真係會拎住本圖鑑慢慢認。


見唔少人都係沿溪泊低行一陣返轉頭咁,所以我哋都係咁大大概概行曬啲覺得比較特別位置就算。


空氣自然好好,即使喺正馬路旁。


感覺上嚟青森係洗乾淨個肺,行到酒店。呢度其實唔算豪華,不過喺咁偏僻嘅位咁大工程咁先進嘅設施,感恩。


印象中日本咁多間酒店係得星野會你坐喺梳化,佢啲staff埋嚟同你CHECKIN。


亦係少數有人幫你推行李的,anyway,我哋房喺正大堂同層兼賣店隔離,轉右直去就係溫泉喇。日本人唔嘈嘅,ok方便啦。


房間舒服嘅,有張唔知點解雞髀勁like嘅按摩椅。


有零食同蘋果汁招呼,又有關於奧入瀨嘅書睇,最後我都有喺賣店買奧入瀨百景同樹木圖鑑。


我哋個窗右手邊望過去其實就係lobby,成間resort唔算太大。


當日有攝影展。


晚餐早餐都係呢間蘋果餐廳buffet。


係估佢唔到都幾熱鬧嘅。


至於食物質素…就係有眼見到嘅樣樣都一般。不過呢度真係冇乜選擇。


青森蘋果批同青森軟雪糕,依然普通,唔可以補返啲分。anyway,飽肚嘅~


雞髀仔最爽就梗係食完飯,做完暑期作業,浸完溫泉再嘆蜜瓜(薯去到邊個超市都會入貨)同按摩椅啦,咁又一day。下篇可能下年先寫。哈哈。

濕疹、保濕用品及更多用家分享

年紀大機器壞香港又被催淚彈污染……,唔多廢話,只係想分享近排試過真心覺正嘅~

1. BFFECT 玻尿酸保濕精華液 (第一代Na-PCA用緊第4、5枝好好,第二代寡糖胺基酸未開,應該比較潤,啱我啲DRY人)
我皮膚又乾又油又敏感;雞髀就雞蛋敏感加濕疹,唔保濕就一面係。

玻尿酸即透明質酸
透明質酸(又名玻尿酸 Hyaluronic Acid)是人體真皮層的其中一種成份,具備保持水份的能力。
正常角質層含水量約在10到15%之間,如果含水量低於10%,肌膚就會開始乾燥脫皮,出現缺水紋,同時也會進一步造成真皮組織的水分流失,形成皺紋鬆弛.透明質酸能增加皮膚的含水性,保持肌膚的濕潤度,讓肌膚呈現應有彈性和光澤,能達到長期保濕,留駐肌膚水分。根據大量研究表明,人體皮膚表層(角質層)水分含量約占15-30%,低於或高於此值均使人不適,具有燥感或膩感,長期如此,會使皮膚乾裂或水腫,從而使皮膚失去彈性,粗糙老化。而透明質酸作用於皮膚內部調理後,可在不同環境中自動調節,始終維持皮膚水分在25-30%,保持皮膚的濕潤、清爽,使皮膚更富有彈性,起到抗皺防皺、延緩人全皮膚衰老、美容養顏的作用。

Na-PCA鈉羥基皮酪烷酮_天然保濕因數
PCA是一種迅速降解物,來自氨基酸。有高度吸水效能,是人體皮膚內自然產生的一部分天然保濕因子(NMF),主要功能是保持皮膚健康的表皮和水份,PCA有很強的吸濕力,能自然地從空氣中吸引水分,幫助頭髮和皮膚補濕。它不會引起粉刺和刺激皮膚,甚至在濃度高達50%,都不會有光敏或敏感反應。由於其含水量結合的能力,是一種高性能的保濕劑,加入產品中能增加皮膚的柔軟度。

寡糖胺基酸
SUBLISKIN™
效用:撫平乾燥細紋撫紋因子寡糖胺基酸,為微生物發酵所得之寡醣,用於幫助脆弱且薄的肌膚對抗每日的外在侵略,以維持肌膚美麗。能對抗水分流失及改善肌膚彈性與密度、刺激玻尿酸、第V型層黏蛋白( laminin-5)和彈力蛋白的合成、強化肌膚屏障並減緩皺紋。

BFFECT 官網: https://bffect.com/zh-tw/
透明質酸大家都知係咩嚟,不過暫時我用過性價比最高係佢,港幣8X蚊枝精華,真係唔知去邊度搵,訂夠10枝送香港都免運費,亦可以用國際轉運,好簡單。

應該用咗化妝水,然後用兩滴再搽cream鎖水嘅。
我呢期極敏感爛面,索性用泉水算。咁就係第二款用咗幾個月嘅Avene。
Avene泉水 + BFFECT透明質酸 + Avene 抗敏感保濕。
雞髀都有用Avene BB 沖涼系列,OK啦,勝在平,搽兩滴BFFECT + 繼續 Vanicream,通常AMAZON買。


2. Avene 香港官網
咁,屈人寺同萬寧勁貴我梗係唔用,通常去Santediscount法國網購,再加另一國際轉運,泉水直接莎莎藥房之類買都係5、6十蚊枝就唔煩喇,cream果啲可以平一半左右。


3. Boneco放濕機
舊機壞咗,梗係cheap到爆去香港格價網買最平U200,so far放濕功能強勁,令我凌晨三點幾濕到醒,唔好向床噴。;p

4.加埋部DYSON空氣清新風扇,自我感覺良好。

5.然後眼又乾,除咗滴眼藥水、少用MON同電話(邊得吖)朋友推介食ForDays核酸,其實我相信除咗貴,冇咩唔好。咁核酸呢家嘢又係難吸收難運送…你信咪試,我就慳啲搵SUPERFOOD算。
Chlorella綠球藻同Spirulina 螺旋藻
短時間食,OK啩,反正平同感覺有益無害,先推介︰
全部iHerb有售,想要推介CODE就click
綠球藻好臭,但佢先多核酸,螺旋藻完全照常吞冇難度。兩款superfood好處google大量,就唔貼喇。

6.講開保健品,就再加埋CREATINE肌酸啦,都係周圍有兼平冇(乜)副作用而證實有效。(我都有食HMB,覺得老人家食係可以冇咁攰,但比較貴,同睇過啲REVIEW話食肉就得,所以唔推。)


7.坂詰式深蹲減重法,CLICK入去睇簡介
食肌酸做乜,咪又係一個肥婆由生完雞髀已開始想但冇實行嘅keep返正常啲嘅夢想……再係咁真係死得。大謝教我行樓梯,一星期兩三日啦而家,但肥婆點解會肥,除咗嗜甜年紀大新陳代謝率低賴同雞髀睇功課其實掛住玩電話外,主要咪就係怕辛苦囉。目前只有樓梯加每星期一次不能令人減磅的瑜伽…加好間唔中嘅Plank。

深蹲應該聽過好耐,但每日3分鐘運動真係最爽嘅方法,感覺上如果咁都做唔到,我真係死咗佢好過。^^

不過,魔鬼都在細節…其實人哋講明你要先節食,同時做呢啲維持甚至增加肌肉。

舊嘢一推:
8.Tanita體脂肪磅
是咁的,大學時期屈同學送嘅生日禮物到今日都仲WORK,真係無話可說,而家多咗牌子多咗分唇,總之要持續每日同時間上磅同埋keep 返record啫,有做果排係會瘦…新機肯畀錢的話,會bluetooth同你keep 埋record落電話添。睇吓個舊磅有冇機會壞啦。(我見fat %成日3尾4頭經常懷疑佢壞……)

9.仲有一大堆計卡路里營養嘅APP例如MyNetDiary
坂詰上面本書有講,通常會肥嘅人都係以為自己冇乜食嘢,冇乜記性同節制力嘅,肯keep又係邁向成功一大步喇。

咁多聖誕禮物選擇,我真係唔話得,哈。:)
