Can carnivorous plants be vegan?

If you know anything about food you’ll know the popularity that plant-based meat is getting in recent years, with exposure now growing month by month.


The world’s first plant-based yakiniku meat launched in Singapore this year, a plant-based patisserie has opened in Hong Kong, and the menu at IKEA Japan has rolled out a new menu that is mostly vegan.


Now, the Canadian branch of the fast food chain A&W that introduced a Beyond Meat Burger to its menus in 2018 have taken a more scientific approach to convince sceptics that their new Beyond Meat nuggets can satisfy meat lovers.

快餐连锁店 A&W 的加拿大分公司于 2018 年引入了人造肉汉堡,他们采取了更科学的方法让怀疑者相信人造肉可以满足肉类爱好者的需求。

“This cannibalistic-like approach aims to convince meat-lovers that the new vegan nuggets taste just like the real thing,” the company said in its release. “There’s no better sample group than a blind plant that only closes its mouth on meaty prey.”


A video on Youtube was shot without any special effects and shows the “world’s most famous carnivorous plants” take the taste test. So, if they’re convinced, are you?

There’s plenty of vegan choices through the Sherpa’s app, so lose those carnivorous tendencies and have a try!




Now Showing: Free Guy – A Science Fiction Action Comedy Film

At one point in our life or another we’ve all had the thought the we might just be in a video game, and that just maybe we’re the hero of our own story.

在生命中的某个时刻,我们都曾有过这样的想法:这一切是否只是在游戏中,而自己就是主角。《失控玩家》便是基于此并由Shawn Levy执导,Ryan Reynolds和Jodie Comer主演的一部科幻动作喜剧电影。

Well sooner or later there was going to be a blockbuster movie based on that thought and who better to produce it than Disney and 20th Century Fox. Free Guy is a science fiction action comedy film directed by Shawn Levy, starring Ryan Reynolds and Jodie Comer.

When a bank teller discovers he’s actually a background player in an open-world video game, he decides to become the hero of his own story — one that he can rewrite himself. In a world where there’s no limits, he’s determined to save the day his way before it’s too late, and maybe find a little romance with the coder who conceived him.


Now showing at theatres across China, Free Guy is a bright and colourful action-packed family movie with a clever concept and a charming cast. Ryan Reynolds gives you everything with a superb performance alongside the equally talented Jodie Comer, this movie is definitely not one to be missed, and with bold scenes and an exciting story it was made for the big screen.

Shanghai to start vaccination for foreign minors


Shanghai will administer COVID-19 vaccines to foreign recipients aged between 12 and 17 in the city from 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to the office of the city’s epidemic prevention and control workgroup.

These minors can voluntarily use their passports, international travel documents, or identity certificates to make reservations for vaccination through an online platform. Relevant information of parents or guardians, including names, certificates and phone numbers, should be provided simultaneously.

Accompanied by their parents or legal guardians, the foreign minors must sign their informed consent before vaccination.

In June, China approved the emergency use of its domestic inactivated COVID-19 vaccines on minors aged 3 to 17.
