Grandparents’ way of transforming their endurance of the turbulent years of war and social movements into a deep appreciation of everything beautiful left a mark on me. What better way to celebrate human tenacity and creativity, and the appreciation of environment and cosmos, other than handling crafts with care?

My love for things with histories (e.g. vintage, recycled, refitted, upcycled), was furthered adapted since I came to the UK through my encounter with how people preserve things and celebrate material and social history here.

In 2013, I joined some wonderful friends to write a series on sustainable life style (舊貨與永續生活方式) on BlossomsEverywhere 游城客書 and Hong Kong House News 香港主場新聞. In 2014, my column specifically about finding vintage beauty was launched in the UK Business Post, and it is probably the first of this kind in Chinese language print media.

Inquiries regarding vintage goodies and personal styles are more than welcome,  You can also find me at my Facebook page, weibo and Instagram.

因為與老人家一起長大,我的習慣也和他們一樣,物盡其用,尋古愛舊。來英國留學之後更是如魚得水,并遇到不少同道之友,收益匪淺。每個人對環保的敏感詞都不同,對我而言,生活環境可能佔了重心,因爲家人都是敏感體質,很早意識到快消時尚帶來的污染和浪費。英國的慈善商店和二手市場剛好讓我看到轉變的可能性。2013開始在《游城客書》及《主場新聞》撰寫舊貨與永續生活方式系列。2014年在《英國商報》以Green Stylist為名開設專欄,應該是華文紙媒上探討古董和二手生活的首創。2015年,有幸加入(料足紮實又有趣的)台灣史學網站《故事:寫給所有人的歷史》,開設「舊物的故事」專欄。

並不標榜獨這是最好或最道德的生活方式,只是希望分享另一種可能性。有人提倡素食,有人熱衷於寵物公益,我的Green Style亦從個人的生活經歷出發。以爲物品的意義,在於使人自覺於環境,包括與時間、自然、他人的關係。能將所感所得分享,是榮幸也是樂趣。非常欣賞一位前輩所說的:“愿我的創作,讓這個世界美一點、再美一點”;相應的,對世界之美的體會和領悟,也希望能多一點、再多一點。
