Sketch… Sunday Service

2 Months

It has been more than 2 months since I left HK to visit Canada, where I last set foot 4 years ago. Time really flies!

Have been sleeping a lot, met and caught up with many friends, and completed a spontaneous mini art project. I’ve rest enough and have seen most of my friends by now. Entering my remaining month here in Toronto, I’ll need to spend more time planning and working. Bought a laptop and a cheap 3D printer and have quickly setup a tiny digital fabrication studio in my sister’s basement. This will likely be what I’ll be doing if I were to move back to Canada, plan to give myself a few weeks of “job shadowing” to experience what it feels like first.

May God continue to guide my remaining trip. 🙏🏻

Week 6

Continue to rest, social, and indulge in the Canadian goodness… Making good progress on my mini art project to paint caricatures of animals found in the nearby park…

Week 5

Met up with a few groups of friends this past week, still very much thankful seeing every single one of my friends healthy and well. Glad that I extended my flight, would not have the opportunity to catch up with these friends otherwise.

Started a mini art project to paint caricatures of the animals I found at a nearby park. It’s a creative exercise to keep myself busy when I’m bored during this extended vacation.

Fourth Week

It has been nearly a month since I started this Canadian trip. I have been resting a lot, seeing and catching up with many friends, and soaking up as much Canadian goodness as I possibly could.

My trip originally ends today, but I managed to extend my return flight to Aug. 1. There was nothing that urgently needed my attention in HK, and I didn’t wanna give in to the unreasonable 7-day quarantine, so I figured I could stay a little longer to rest more, see more friends, and continue to savor the Canadian goodness that I missed in the past 4 years!

I think the slow life here is actually helping me think through a lot of things that were neglected and overwhelmed by the hectic and stressful life in HK. I now seemed to have gained a better understanding and appreciation of God’s plan for me. I’m not sure what lies ahead in life, but I’m increasingly trusting God to lead the way, one step at a time.

Third Week

Third week into my month-long vacation. Still meeting up friends almost daily. Beginning to see repeating friends in the meetups, still grateful seeing every single friend healthy and happy!

I think I’m now more attuned to the slower pace here in Canada. I usually get more than 8 hours of restful sleep every day now. And after waking up, I would catch up on the online news and WhatsApp messages before getting out of bed. Then I would go out to pick up my daily coffee and brunch and enjoy the meal in the beautiful park nearby. I usually take a slow walk in the park, and sometimes do sketches here and there, before heading back to my sister’s place. Evenings are usually reserved for meetups with friends.

Since the DQHs in HK are all booked up in the summer, I tried to postpone my flight back, but it turned out that my flight was already cancelled for some reason. Shouldn’t the airline reschedule my flight if it was cancelled? I guess at least now I wouldn’t need to worry about scrambling for a DQH that would match my original return flight. Now I have neither a return flight nor a DQH booked, it looks like God would like me to stay here for a bit longer to rest, social, and continue to soak up all the Canadian goodness that I missed in the past 4 years!
