Summer has two stages - \'slight heat\' and \'great heat\'. The former is perfect for many things - making fans, Chinese waffles and lotus root salad, as Shi Ke demonstrates.

My name is Shi Ke, I\'m a designer.
I have a yard called \"Luo Shang San Yue.\"
I like to plant flowers there,
cook delicious things and make tea.
Summer is made up of two parts - \'slight heat\' is the first.
It is in fact already very hot, and full of life.
It is hot during the day, and there are a lot of mosquitoes at night.
A handmade cattail leaf fan can help you feel pleasantly cool,
I use dry cattail leaves to make fans by separating the thick leaves and thin one.
This way the fan looks prettier.
First you knit them together lengthwise,
then the other way. It\'s very easy,
When it the circle is complete,
you collect the leftover parts,
tie them together with a string.
(Although this hobby isn\'t particularly fun,
it is quite meditative.)
The finished product is more useful than it is beautiful.
It can offer a cool breeze or shade, depending on how you use it.
I still remember when I was a child,
my grandma would drive away mosquitoes with a fan just like this.
When we have time off,
I usually make Chinese waffles for my family.
It\'s a simple and beautiful thing, I really enjoy it.
First you put some yeast powder in warm water,
then add flour and mix it together.
Don\'t mix too vigorously or too gently.
Put the paste in a bowl,cover it up for 2-3 hours, and then knead.
Knead until the surface feels incredibly smooth.
Then form the dough into a ball,
press it into the mould,
and cook on the stove for eight to ten minutes,
untill the surface is nice and yellow.
The waffles smell amazing now.
Not just good to look at, but tasty too.
Such a delicious gift from nature.
The dog days between \'slight heat\' and \'great heat\' are the most humid and hottest of the year.
During that time, we should eat things than can cool us down.
TCM says that eating lotus root is good for the body at this time.
I will often make lotus root salads,
I pour soy sauce in a bowl,add some salt, sugar and chili.
Then I mix them together, and add olive oil,
then I soak sliced lotus root in the water,
then soak them in hot salt water and take out immediately.
I put the lotus root in a bowl,
add some sauce,arugula,
sprinkle some white sesame seed,
and it is ready to eat.
