WOW! It’s been 10 MONTHS since Home Kong Kitchen got on a roll and started making serious dough! We’ve spent nearly a year turning our kitchens into mini-Hiroshimas and baking a difference to feed Hong Kong’s homeless! 🇭🇰

Our initiative started as a response to news reports that food waste charities were struggling to feed the homeless during the 3rd Wave of the pandemic. So what started out as the Baker’s Dirty Half Dozen began to bake our own and donate it to Breadline in weekly food drives. 

As more and more bighearted Homekongers have rallied to our cause, Home Kong Kitchen has risen. We now bake, collect and deliver homemade breads, bagels and muffins directly to people living on the streets, in unlicensed shelters and refuges most days! 

This Easter, Home Kong Kitchen‘s bionic baking community delivered dozens of afternoon teas to homeless shelters and refuges across Hong Kong! Props to Alana Ho for baking the scones, Chriz Lim for the lemon cakes, Raquel Ate for the giant banana cake and our original Baker’s Dirty Half Dozen for the hot cross buns! Not forgetting our amazing community of artists @ Mental Ideas for their handcrafted notes and inspiring artwork! 

Besides our regular weekly deliveries to unlicensed shelters and homeless charity ImpactHK, Home Kong Kitchen is now delivering free breakfasts to anybody who needs it anywhere in Hong Kong! If you and your family are struggling to put food on the table, or if you’re from a refuge or shelter that has not yet sampled our baking and would like to, please take a moment to register!

We have lots of events lined up over the summer, including baking workshops in collaboration with Breadline @ Refugee Union, a monthly Picnic Project, a novelty cookbook and our first Bijou Pâtisserie, where you can order our baking! We can’t promise it will be the best you’ve ever tasted, but we CAN promise that every cent we make is donated directly to homeless charities!

To volunteer for HKK as a home baker, bread donator or artist, or to try our baking, email hello@homekongkitchen.com.

Thank you for your incredible kindness and support! 💜 💜 💜

Local “Media Star” begs for help lugging bread around! 🤣

This summer I’ve been on a roll and making a lot of dough! Thanks to the amazing team effort of Ying, Moira, Chriz, Raquel, Mercy, Michelle, Emma and Amy, we were able to donate ALL THIS to Hong Kong charity Breadline! (And this was just Week 1…)

The food waste charity, founded by Daisy Tam Diers, does a cracking job of feeding the homeless, elderly, migrants and refugees living well below the breadline on the streets or in shelters. The charity usually relies on food waste donations from cafes and restaurants, but with most operating restricted hours at low capacity, Breadline and other food waste charities have been unable to keep up with demand at a time it has never been higher. So after reading an article in the HKFP, I rallied a few of the neighbors together to see if we could feasibly bake our own to help the charity continue its work during the pandemic.

For the past couple of months we have made this a weekly initiative and we’d love to have your support! If you’re based in Sai Kung/ Clearwater Bay/ Tseung Kwan O and would like to join our Baker’s Dirty Half Dozen, fill in the form below! We’re all novices so don’t let a trivial thing like experience put you off. My first loaf came out of the oven not just burnt, but on fire! It still tasted pretty good though, once I’d given it a good hose down with the fire extinguisher.

We were also able to donate at least 12 shop bought loaves to Feeding Hong Kong, who had received an anonymous tip off about my baking and decided their insurance policy didn’t cover it.

We are now exploring the possibility of setting up an online bakery, Home Kong Kitchen, where you can order home made breads, pastries, muffins and other yummy treats online and we deliver it to your home. We can’t promise it’ll be the best you’ve ever tasted but we can promise every cent we make will be donated to homeless charities. We are also collaborating with local artists to create sustainable bread boxes out of recycled waste with doodled designs and messages of solidarity to our homeless friends.

Thanks Hong Kong Buzz for your plug of my Mental Ideas Podcast, plus recent film festival excitements for a film I co-produced with Contro Vento Films Transference: A Bipolar Love Story, which was supposed to have its world premiere at the New York Socially Relevant Film Festival in March, the film’s selections for the Arizona International Film Festival and Buenos Aires International Film Festival, mention of my 2019 NIFA Award and plans to travel to Wisconsin to catch up with the indomitable Dan Davies (an upcoming podcast guest) for NIFA 2020 in May. Which sounds a lot more exciting that it actually is. In reality, the podcast is the only item of news mentioned in the article that hasn’t been postponed. But give it time…

Sadie Kaye back on the air with new RTHK radio show

RTHK's Miss Adventure Friend to the Stars - Monthly Column in Hong Kong Buzz

The Mental Ideas Podcast will be back on RTHK Radio 3 next Thursday (April 16) @ 2.30pm on the 123 Show!

Lockdown your daughters! Lockdown your sons! Lockdown your spouses! Lockdown your helpers! Lockdown your pets! 

Miss Adventure has finally clambered oh-so-elegantly out of that strange parallel universe she’s been inhabiting for the past couple of months (ok, she may have written most of these in a fit of predictive psychosis way back in 2019, when tear gas, rubber bullets and fire bombs were all we had to worry about – happy days!) to bring you THESE hurriedly updated, probably dangerously accurate Lockdown Lowdown predictions for the month ahead in her latest column for Hong Kong Buzz!

Lockdown Lowdown

https://hongkongbuzz.hk/2020/03/april-2020-horoscopes-by-rthk-radio-3s-miss-adventure-friend-to-the-stars

Today in Hong Kong it was 9 degrees hotter than it was in London and thousands of people staged a peaceful sit in protest inside Asia’s busiest airport. Number of planes that did not take off on time: zero.

Meanwhile in the UK… planes and trains have melted, combusted or ground to a precautionary health and safety standstill with passengers trapped on board or stranded by the apocalyptic chaos. Sky News broadcasting blanket coverage of London burning. Close ups of Londoners resembling sweaty extras on The Walking Dead complaining of missed connections, hot burning sensations, melted shoes, suspicious smells suggesting exploded sewage systems, screaming kids and snotty faces. Let’s hope those 20,000 extra bobbies Bojo’s pledged will be put to immediate good use, precision trained in the art of handing out water, sunscreen and pro-Bojo flyers that can be easily adapted into paper hats, fans and planes that take off on time.

DOGDAMMIT! If those gullible fools at Buzz don’t believe me, no one will… SO disrespectful to the stars!!! Next month I predict that Jupiter and a mystery blonde accomplice will come along and burn their building to the ground! TO THE GROUND!!!!!!!
