Social Week

Have had an unusually social week during these social-distancing times. On Thursday, I even met up with 2 separate friends and had 3 total hours of phone conversations on 2 separate calls, ended up not setting foot in the studio the whole day! I purposely scheduled all the meetups this week because I wanna hear […]

Weekend Art Retreat

Over the weekend, I was fortunate enough to be invited back to WWF’s Island House to do some art. The location is truly a paradise that’s isolated from our ever more chaotic city. The staffs and volunteers there were also very friendly and accommodating, quite a stark contrast from the hostile faces that’s becoming common […]

Geniuses

Finally finished reading the huge biography of Einstein, love the genius who famously said “imagination is more important than knowledge”!  On top of his unquestionable scientific achievements, I also admire his humility, creativity, ability to drift off or focus in all circumstances, courage of nonconformity to authorities, and above all else, his perseverance.  At the […]

Recent Updates

It’s been awhile since I sat in front on my laptop and talk to my journal… Firstly, since this “co-op term” started at the beginning of the month, I stopped my regular morning running practice, not because of work but mainly just due to the unusually hot weather… I’ve also finished the month-long Cafe Startup […]

Jesus and Money

Don’t even remember how I came across this book Jesus and Money.  I was drawn by the title as I’m in the process of figuring out the studio finances for the new year.  It’s a problem I’ve been lavishly avoiding for a long time, but I really need to figure out a way to sustain […]

Art for Food?

Valentine’s Day.  Was thinking about asking the girl I like out, but she said early this week she didn’t have the luxury to go to the annual CNY market this year, I’m just assuming she’s busy today as well?  Or is she dating someone else?  Actually, does she have a bf?  How can I be […]

Creative Monday

Originally planned to do some volunteering in the afternoon, but the fai chun making session with the elderly was cancelled due to cold weather. With the freed up time slot, I took a stroll through the Old Master Q exhibition at the mall near my studio.  Saw some of the hand drawn comics by the […]

Coffee Workshop

Before going to buy some red fai chun paper in preparation for the upcoming volunteering work on Monday, I decided to go pick up my long due (beginner) barista certificate nearby.  It just happened that there was a coffee workshop going on, I aimlessly went in the seminar room while the speaker was wrapping up […]
