🌊 Hair cuts are coming back
Ukrainian restaurant Ivan The Kozak receives local support.
Has anyone tried this allegedly healing drink that helps alleviate COVID-19 symptoms? It sounds too good to be true but my family in HK swear by it.

Ukrainian restaurant in Hong Kong supports home from afar
Vicktoriia Tkachuk, the manager and daughter of the owners of a Ukrainian restaurant, has been outspoken against the current invasion and war that Russia is waging in Ukraine. The restaurant, called Ivan The Kozak (Kozak: “a group of people who don’t belong to the government, like free warriors”), features “stop the war” posters in the entranceway of its Central location, and has been accepting cash donations to give to pro-Ukraine organisations.
Now is a good time to go support Ivan The Kozak and learn more about the current situation between Russia and Ukraine.
Hair salons reopening Thursday
Hair salons are allowed to reopen tomorrow with the use of the vaccine pass system, meaning that folks with bad hairdos won’t have to suffer for much longer at home. Other social distancing measures will be extended until 23 March.
