Have you ever wished there was a way to eat a homemade, warm lunch at work without having to resort to the communal microwave that hasn’t been cleaned since last summer?
A woman has amassed millions of views on Weibo, a Chinese social media site, thanks to her videos showing how to cook hot meals using items found around an office. Want to cook some bacon for an afternoon snack, but don’t have a stove around? No problem!
The woman, known as ‘Office Little Ye,’ works in the city of Chengdu in an undisclosed office. She uploads a new video each week to Weibo and has even begun sharing her masterpieces on YouTube. And she’s literally become the MacGyver of office cooking hacks.
In one video, Office Little Ye places tinfoil on a magazine and cooks it up with an iron she finds in her office. Painting olive oil onto both tinfoil surfaces, she then uses the iron to heat the beef and make herself lettuce wraps.
Ever consider making pancakes on the top of a PC tower? Now might be the time to start.
Does your colleague refuse to share their ramen noodles with you? Simply knit your own during your break.
In this video, Office Little Ye shows us how to not only make popcorn in a can of pop, but also how to combine a bowl and a straw together. Hack status = Master.
While most of these hacks would take up a lot of time and energy, and would also cause the entire office to smell like your food, we think sharing with co-workers and your boss would help to silence any complaints.
