A Good Week

The past week was a good week, a rarity in recent months.

Early on Monday, many Hongkongers woke up to the uplifting news about the big win of the pro-democracy camp in the district council election. I found out that my district is actually one of the most pro-Beijing districts and the candidate I voted for had lost. It was a happy day nonetheless, and my family (the majority pro-democracy ones) went out for a celebration dinner together.

In mid-week, Trump signed the Human Rights Act that would allow US to sanction those Hongkongers (mainly pro-Beijing politicians) who violated Human Rights according to international standards. That fueled more happiness in the city.

The many happy news led to a mostly peaceful week all the way to Saturday when I began the busy weekend of work in a craft fair. The fair was surprisingly packed with visitors. I seized the opportunity to infuse some positive energy into the city. Using my never-good-enough calligraphy skill, I wrote nearly 100 “香港人加油” and some custom requests for “光復香港 時代革命” and “願榮光歸香港” etc. It was tiring, but I really enjoyed making art and being appreciated of my work. May what I do be of goodness in God’s eyes too. 🙏🏻
