2016.02.05 Electric Island

全世界都在谈虚拟电厂,真正在做的却没几个。

苏格兰的Eigg岛全岛面积30多平方公里,只有83个常驻居民。就这样一个小岛却在2015年成为全球瞩目的焦点。原因很简单,依靠几个小型水电,风电,光伏和储能的协调,全岛做到百分之90以上的用电都是绿色可再生的。

人人都吹牛时,才显得实干家的与众不同。

Eigg的成功不仅仅需要依靠科技的发展,更为重要的是居民为此做出生活习惯上妥协(绿色能源当然没有石化能源便捷,例如居民需要清楚了解每个用电设备的功率和避开发电低谷区),而这种妥协在我看来,是绿色能源被大多数人接受的最大阻碍。

Rape!

Yesterday as usual I was chatting with one of my friend, and I came to know the worst part of her life but I am in a dicey situation should I make it public or not as it is not something most of us are not comfortable to speak out and such things are kept secret only not because the image of the person is being spoiled in disclosing about the thing but there are other parameters which make them quite, sometimes it’s a shame and sometimes it’s just excuse. 450 more words

2016.01.30 一周假期半周梦游

这次从德国飞回新加坡,老婆回娘探亲家,我其实也没什么可安排的,心想五六天够我逛遍整个新加坡了。但时差的威力不可小觑,基本凌晨两三点醒了就睡不着了,一大半时间都昏昏沉沉的。说是一周的假期,除去补觉,探亲访友,打扫房间,留给自己的估计连一天都不到。之前打算去看的电影和博物馆都黄了。

现在机场等回欧的航班,希望下个星期倒时差稍微温柔一点。

Southwestern Kale Power Salad with Sweet Potato, Quinoa & Avocado Sauce

Last weekend I did something totally unusual for me: I planned our meals in advance for the entire week ahead (granted, it took some urging from my husband after I complained about being tired of eating the same things all the time). 209 more words

2016.01.27 去年剁的手

ST1最近有个帖子是关于去年买了哪些好玩儿的东西,这是我的总结。

Delongai EC 680M 意式咖啡机 + Graef 咖啡豆研磨机,现在上班只喝茶,因为连公司的WMF自动机的咖啡都喝不下去了。
Proraso 剃须皂 + Mühle 剃须刷 + Mühle Mach 3 剃须刀柄,从此剃须成为享受。
N3DS欧版和游戏若干,做为一个索粉,还比较满意。

2016.01.26 Rimowa goes masstige

本来一直想买个Rimowa的箱子的,听说耐操,而且反正德国也不贵,但旧箱子迟迟不出问题,我也找不到借口剁手。

这次倒好,不买的借口从德国回新加坡的飞机上找到了。那阵势,都快成人手一个了。特别是领行李的时候,行李传送带上估计有一半都是R家的,颇有点当初LV和Gucci在新加坡中年妇女层中的滲透率。且不说用滥市货带来的尴尬,实际用起来估计也是会提心吊胆,每次都要担心自己的行李被错拿。
