    The LAST day!!! 
    Thank you everyone for all your supports. 
    We are at no. 4th among 44 HP team ( as per-this timing.. our score is 19775 and the 3rd place is 22337). If we can beat them, it'a cool... 
    But even if not, we are an amazing team, considering this is our first time to create team for Malaysia haha..  It is amazing to see many people are passionate about sustainability and your comments are cool. KUDOS!

    How might impact investing help you better live your values?

    Christine Silvia Ayal 10/21/2019 4:26 PM
    I find it a great idea to focus financial fund that you invest to push for practical changes in social environmental issues that you are passionate about. 
    By expecting company to have measurable objectives and excellent perfomance in social environmental indicator, they would mobilize their resources into it - strategic and technical expertises and networks . 
    It could lead to a more sustainable changes compared to simply charity.

    Nature Forage for My Food
    People are motivated to forage for many different reasons: as a source for food, a means of income, to connect with nature, to participate in cultural tradition, transmitting specific ecological knowledge, or as a means of stewarding local and native plant populations. What is your chief motivation for foraging?

    Christine Silvia Ayal 10/20/2019 1:36 AM
    Food foraging activities are known to also improve your psychological well-being, spending more time with nature will help you to appreciate the biodiversity around us.

  • Christine Silvia Ayal 10/20/2019 1:32 AM
    Food foraging concept is not new in Singapore, there are few organization that provides workshops and learning experiences to encourage urban food foraging and farming. Falling fruit is an interesting page too, now I know where i could go for adventure and find jackfruits, durian, mango, cassava and rambutan :)

    Going to have 2 weeks holiday in place with different weather. In the past, i usually ended up buying new stuff to wear or use. 
    This year, i put aside an hour to sit and plan my outfits and items and realize, i only need to buy 4 items, and none of those is clothes!! 😂😂
