4X-th Birthday

It was my 4X-th birthday last Wednesday. I took a day off from work. Declined to celebrate with my parents, and I didn’t wanna ask friends out either. I decided to spend the day doing what I enjoy doing – Art! I revived an IG account dedicated to my ink art and started a new series of cartoons about the (sad) story of KOKB (King of Kowloon Bay), It’s something I had been wanting to do for a long time, but I had put the project aside for nearly a year. Guess it’s better late than never, it felt good to once again infuse my depressing life here in this deteriorating city with a little bit of creativity and art exploration.

Also managed to finally get a much needed haircut, it will certainly help me survive the anticipated hot summer here now that I had decided to postpone my return to Canada.

Though I didn’t get to celebrate my birthday with family and friends, it was a day well spent. The positive mood was set as soon as I woke up and did my daily devotions. The scripture that day was Psalm 139:14 “I praise you, because I am fearfully and wonderfully made… “. I was reminded once again that I’m a precious creation from God despite the countless times I had sinned and the unaccomplished life I have been living in the past 4X years. It’s not too late to change the course and return to the path that God had initially planned for me. I was also reminded that I wasn’t alone as many good friends remembered and cared to message me with bday greetings, The good friends are also proof that my 4X years of life is not entirely meaningless. I am genuinely grateful. I also had a thoughtful colleague who surprised me with a couple of small bday cakes when I returned to the studio the next day.

May God continue to pour His grace and mercy on me as I enter the second half of the life He had created me for. 🙏🏻
