If you are living in Adelaide, you can obtain polystyrene containers easily at Torrens Island Market site. The Torrens Island Market is every Sunday and ends around noon. You can come collect polystyrene containers at the garbage late in the afternoon. Not many people around during that time so no need to be embarrass. Only a few people that come fishing is around. If you are lucky you can even watch a pink sunset or dolphins.
A budding fisherman practising his skill.Rayyan even surprised us on trying to assemble the hook line on the fishing rod by himself while others were fishing which is still too dangerous for his age. Because he wanted one all by himself. He insist on holding the fishing rod by himself.
It always shock me on how many vegetables thrown in the garbage. Some of the vegetables and fruits that were thrown were just a little black or bruise because it does not look fresh and pretty anymore. But those vegetables are still edible. If I have a pet like bunny or chooks, I would have taken some back for them. Because I remembered when my brother had bunnies for his pet, my parents usually bought old vegetables from supermarkets like Giant in Malaysia that has been reduced it price sometime RM1 perbag for his dear pet. So much food waste and people dying of hunger in other part of this world. Polystyrene containers in the photo were full of beans!
