Plant Edible trees

Programs to harness students potential

So many programs on tutoring to get in university. The pressure on kids is evident with the rise on child suicide. I believe a program to raise awareness on alternative to university degrees as well as alternative education to help these students harness their potential will not only help students who don’t fit traditional education teaching methods but provide hope and tools to find a fulfilling career with their talents and expertise.

Youth Activities Exchange Platform

Our young generation nowadays have been living under huge academic pressure from their parents, schools and our society. The amount of time that they spent on their school works have been exhausting them from looking for activities outside of their study. It would certainly make their lives easier if we could provide a platform where they can look for activities to do according to their interests and their schedules. This platform would ,hopefully, keep them away from the ridiculous academic pressure temporarily while making the activities targeting to youth more accessible to these teenagers.

Public Deodarant Sprays

Parts of Asia are crazy humid, wouldn’t it be nice if there were public deodarant spray stations to freshen up? Would particularly be good in public places like Disney park where people are rushing around with kids and waiting in long lines in the sun.


Imagine you have a great spot in a coffeeshop but you have to go to the bathroom. Or you’re in line at a supermarket and have to grab something else. SaveMySpot would tap into the power of the crowd to help you out. Perhaps you can tip the person helping you or earn credits for all the good deeds.

Restaurant Grading System

Many major cities adopted a “grading system” for restaurants so that customers know if a restaurant is sanitary in terms of handling food, and not having any insects or mice. With so many restaurants in Hong Kong, there needs to be better system in place to know how clean a restaurant is.
