This week, we are relying on friends.

One of the great benefits of being part of a community is having the option to take a rest while others keep up the pace.

In one paragraph, we can save a week’s worth of work by sharing Free Yoga Classes Across The City from Green Queen and the Zero Waste Kitchen by Ecozine along with the new Guide to Meditation and Mindfulness in Hong Kong by our Sassy girlfriends. Our friends at liv magazine have a lovely profile of Sacha Van Damme who is the founder of Permaclub.

Whew — that was a huge effort …

It hasn’t been all play. We’d like to thank RTHK Radio 3 Morning Brew for inviting us to come up with the Natural Living in Hong Kong series over the past 3 weeks. Last Wednesday, we invited Jonathan Wong from the Hong Kong Organic Resource Centre and he was very informative, as usual. Imagine our surprise when we arrived to discover we would do our first ever Facebook live event.

The stars are aligning for our down time and, as luck would have it, the first of the month falls on a Tuesday this week so we are double-dipping and publishing the August calendar and our weekly community newsletter in one go.

Yup — today was a really big day.

We might even consider really taking a break for the rest of the the summer. Thanks to social media, we can still keep in touch with our community and post everyone else’s updates if we do decide to be super lazy and get some proper, long over-due rest.

What are friends for?
