It is no laughing matter dear neighbours; climate change affects us all. If we are not going to change our behavioural patterns, it will only continue to deteriorate. CO2 levels and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere rose to new records in 2019 and the decade 2010-2019 was the warmest ever recorded. Undoubtedly, we need big decisions and drastic measure but anyone and everyone can contribute with small actions. Why not start with more green food and drink choices? Eco-f
Over the recent past, many have thrown in the towel and left Hong Kong. And who can blame them really?? Chaos and confusion have been all around us. The last two years have taken Hong Kong through quite a rocky ride. First the protests, then Corona virus and then the basic law coming into vigor.

We are all sick and tired of the social distancing, mask wearing etc... in the Covid times. Lack of social interactions, WFH, zero international travel etc and a list of other unwanted restrictions have come with the Corona virus pandemic. But has this Covid era been all bad? We ask some Hooders if this exceptional and well-cursed pandemic has gotten any positive outcome for them? Hear on...
This month we have the Fathers day. And this month is also the Gay pride month. We thought it would be a good idea to recognize dads in a special way. To combine the two important dates this month, we spoke to some gay dads in HK that are fathers. All excited (as we always are for a LocalHood blog article😀), we tried to contact some gay parents with kids. The whole team helped with contacts but unfortunately we got no interest whatsoever to share their fatherhood stories,
