(Tri) Weekly Update

Don’t know where I’ve spent all my time in the past few weeks, let me think…

My first mini art exhibition started more than a week ago. Using the exhibition as an opening conversation, I managed to contact many friends I haven’t messaged for months, and I got back many congratulations in return. Frankly, it felt kinda strange to be congratulated and be wished success, maybe becoz I never really dreamt of exhibiting my artwork before. Regardless, I’m truly grateful for this rare opportunity to share my ink journey in the past 3 years. Moreover, the experience did teach me how art can help connect people, I even met someone who used to live on the same street as me in Toronto, small world!!

Speaking of TO, the Raptors won the Eastern Finals for the first time since the team was established in 1995!! The special occasion sparked many conversations among my TO friends, and it’s times like this that made me realize how much I missed Canada.

Writing this post seems to make me realize why I like art and sports, they are universal languages that connect people together without the need of words!

Journaling can be such a revelation experience sometimes, I really should pick up this habit again…

Weekly Update…

Skipped a week of updates because I was too tired last Sunday after joining the city’s rally against the extradition to mainland rule.

The rally had the largest number of protesters since the Umbrella Movement, there was a sense of hope I felt afterwards. But will our stubborn Government listen to their people?

There are a few things happening with me these days that are outside of my regular work/church/family routines:

  • Working on setting up a mini exhibition of my ink works. They’re not finished works but rather practice works along my ink-obsessed journey which began about 3 years ago when I started learning Chinese calligraphy.
  • In addition to being persuaded to use a dating app a few weeks back, my friends formed a whatsapp group to discuss the app and dating in general. I find the whole thing really funny and I kept telling them how using the app to find matching partners is so much like our UW days of using the co-op system to find matching jobs. LOL.
  • Started taking an introductory 3D animation course on Saturday afternoons. Finished 3 classes, 7 more to go.

Weekly Update…

The past week didn’t seem as dramatic as previous weeks, but still had its memorable highlights:

  • Wed, met up with my woodworking friend in Tuen Mun to discuss some possible collaboration for an upcoming exhibition
  • Fri, housewarming in Sai Kung, met up with my UW classmates, I got persuaded to tryout a dating app
  • Sat, dropped off my artworks and saw a Chinese calligraphy exhibition in Central. Crazy storm broke out when I stepped in the ferry to TST, a very memorable ride! Saw an Easter musical at church in the evening
